Norman Ball — Pinning the Trail on the Donkey

Lamenting Germany’s WW1 defeat at the 1934 Nuremberg Rally, Joseph Goebbels acknowledges a hard lesson learned:
“While the enemy states produced unprecedented atrocity propaganda aimed at Germany throughout the whole world, we did nothing and were completely defenseless against it…Just as we were militarily and economically unprepared for the war, so also with propaganda. We lost the war in this area more than in any other. The cleverest trick used in propaganda against Germany during the war was to accuse Germany of what our enemies themselves were doing.”...
Here is a link to Goebbels at Nuremberg — 1934

Sometimes this is done consciously and intentionally for propaganda. At other times it is psychological projection, accusing others of one's own stuff as a means of denying ownership of it.
