There is no condoning nor commanding of genocide or psychological abuse in the Bible. Like it or not, there is a right way and a wrong way to think. Without being born-again, none of us thinks correctly at all. And after that we still have to watch ourselves.

It’s irrelevant if it’s explicitly in the bible or not. The clearly states that it has been associated historically with such acts which cannot be denied. From the churches persecution of the Jews to it’s support of the NAZI regime to the inquisition, it is clear that what is stated in this meme is very much true. But if you want examples of genocide and psychological abuse in the bible…
And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain. Deuteronomy 2:34
And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them. Deuteronomy 7:2
But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth. Deuteronomy 20:16-17
And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword. Joshua 6:21
So smote all the country … he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the LORD God of Israel commanded. Joshua 10:40
Thus saith the LORD of hosts … go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass. 1 Samuel 15:2-3
Then there’s the story of Noah where God completes wipes out all of humanity except one guy, his family and his pets.
Regarding psychological abuse, there’s the story of The Lord speaking to Abraham where God commands Abraham to sacrifice his son:
‘Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt-offering on one of the mountains that I shall show you.’ (Genesis 22:2)
Then he turns around and says, “Psyche. just testing ya, lols. You’re a good boy Abraham.”
If that’s not psychological abuse then I don’t know what is.
