Abuse-mirroring is a right-wing tactic in which a right-winger will defend a group who has been criticized for abusing others as being the "real" victim.
It is a form of performative leftism in that it uses social justice language to oppose social justice.
- Victim-blaming, in which the victim is framed as the abuser, is a sort of inverse of abuse-mirroring.
- Free speech trolling consists of using "free speech" arguments to gain sympathy for the speaker and shut down opposition by claiming that said opposition is infringing on the speaker's right of free speech.
