DefinitionPVS (Professional Victim Syndrome) - A false condition portraying an individual or organization as a victim.

Abbreviated list of Examplescover it up to maintain news access, as they did in pre-war Iraq. How many CNN employees got fired over that one?
never had slaves, to surrender their hard earned wages to people who never were slaves. My grandparents were child poverty slaves in the textile mills. Can I get some reparations too?
"I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it," Lott said. "And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either.That was all Trent Lott said.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton apologized for joking that Mahatma Gandhi used to run a gas station in St. Louis, saying it was "a lame attempt at humor." Unlike Trent, we all know her heart was in the right place. Yeah right.
NOW Attacks Bush on the strict Abortion front Bush has liberated millions of Women from ritual beatings, stoning, female infanticide, female genital mutilation and general treatment not suitable for animals, in countries like Afghanistan and Iraq. He has given them the freedom to vote in Afghanistan, Kuwait and Iraq. N.O.W. still feels it is a top priority to warn us all, that they might lose their precious right to terminate infants at will. They sure look like victims of impending oppression to me.
Synopsis of NOW's position:
No criticism is to be levied at Bill Clinton for demeaning women with sexual harrasment, on the job.
No credit is to be afforded to Bush for what he has done for Women's rights.
However, zealous criticism must be heaped on Bush for something he hasn't actually done to women's rights.
It goes on and on and on...
Primary ContraindicationsNever issue a public apology to a purveyor of PVS. They are schooled in the James Carville war room mentality. They will never accept apology at its face value. If it is given, it will be used as a signed confession, in public discourse or in the courtroom. These people and organizations are an opportunistic enemy, not a victim of your insensitivity.
Never pay hush tribute to a purveyor of PVS. Payments are considered an admission of guilt. The first payment becomes the first installment in a blackmail campaign.
PVS is not a disease requiring sympathy. It is a crime requiring punishment and public excoriation.
Remember those responsible for hate crimes legislation. Remember the thought police responsible for hate speech legislation. Pay careful attention to how these laws are being misused and abused.
