Please sir, this is uncalled for! He's been a professional victim all his life and you insult him in light of him being persecuted by Nikon. These are emotionally trying times for him. It is no fun being a victim so please be sensitive and show compassion as the whole world is against him.

Exactly. A victim. A victim of his own mind.

This is called the Martyr Victim Complex:

'The martyr is one who employs self-sacrifice and victimization as a way of avoiding to take responsibility for their life. They are prepared, however, to take responsibility for everyone else's life.

They are invariably unhappy and unfulfilled because they deny their own needs for the sake of others. They view life as a struggle, and themselves as a bastion of righteousness in an ungrateful world.

The victim role is an important component of a martyr complex. It justifies in their mind that others are responsible for their pain. They engage in compulsive blaming to reinforce this conviction. The blaming functions to deflect the basic neurotic tendency of their behavior: They set themselves up to be victims. They do this to avoid taking responsibility for their life, but also to show that their own behavior is beyond criticism.'
