And To Be Even More Politically Precise
This afternoon at the Conservative Agenda, Political Insiders were asking Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane about some year-end revisions in the Whistleblower “Stylebook,” which like at all print publications, shows the rules and examples of usage, punctuation, and typography, used in preparation of copy for publication.
“Last year we started using ‘Propaganda Media’ instead of ‘News Media,’” Kane explained, “but from the looks of it, we might be the only ones taking Newt Gingrich’s suggestion seriously.”
Conservative Curmudgeon Stu Mahlin sent us some words Dennis Lund at American Thinker would like to see banned in the New Year. Maybe we should take a look at some of them:
TRANSPARENCY — This word was elevated in the common lexicon under Obama, who vowed to have the most transparent administration in history. After witnessing the misuse of the word during his tenure, any liberal politician who uses it should be tarred, feathered, and forced to watch Donald Trump’s acceptance speech. How about reverting to what we really desire? …honesty.
ALT-RIGHT — Though first used by the political right, this word was co-opted by the political left to use as a derogatory term synonymous with white supremacy. They like using the word as often as possible to get a rise out of people. Saul Alinsky taught them to do that.
DIVERSITY — This word is hugely popular at liberal universities where they have diversity officers, administrators of diversity, and diversity quotas. They love to brag about how diverse they are, or how they appreciate diversity. The exception, though, is diversity of ideas, which is highly frowned upon and severely punished in diverse ways.
INCOME INEQUALITY — Yes, we have heard this for years; The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Margaret Thatcher described liberal policy this way: “(Liberals) would rather that the poor were poorer provided the rich were less rich.”
WHITE PRIVILEGE — The concept can be traced back to W.E.B. DuBois, but has come into vogue only in the past ten years or so. This libspeak is meant to diminish achievement, while ignoring efforts contributing to success. It is a concept used to divide the races while currying favor among minority voters.
“FREE” (as in ‘Free’ Education or ‘Free’ Health Care) — Nothing in life is without cost. Only Bernie Sanders supporters, those grieving for Fidel, and junior college philosophy professors actually believe that such things are ‘free’. What they really mean, and are perfectly happy with, is: ‘someone else pays’.
BULLYING — Okay, we get the point, no one likes mean people. We have heard it now for a few years. Sure, Tommy stole your lunch money in the fifth grade. Get over it.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND – No war was ever won by aerial bombardment alone or by superior footwear. Those boots are filled by soldiers, our sons and daughters. Let’s stop referring to them as something from the L. L. Bean catalog.
WITH ALL DUE RESPECT – Translated, it really means; ‘I am about to shoot your argument full of holes because I think you’re an idiot’. But it does sound a lot nicer, at least until you know the true intent. Due to overuse, it has lost any real meaning.
MY BAD — Translated this one means: ‘I’m sorry, I made a mistake.’ But five characters texts faster than 22. Are you really in that big of a hurry to forgo a simple courtesy?
FAITHLESS ELECTORS — This phrase, virtually unknown on November 7 of this year, was brought out of the unused pages of the dictionary by democrats, still smarting after Hillary’s humiliating defeat. Various ploys failed to grant her the success she craved: illegal voting, vote fraud, recounts in multiple states, and the best one: the Russians did it! Then came “Faithless electors.” These are Electoral College voters who were to be coerced, threatened, or enticed into changing their votes. Madonna offered herself to anyone who changed their vote. I am not clear if that was a threat or an enticement.
HOPE AND CHANGE — Eight years ago, this phrase became the national theme for the incoming president. Last week Michelle, fretting over her departure from the White House, declared that now there is no hope. Well, here is hoping we never hear from those two again.
The Whistleblower’s Garrulous Grammarian had a few words he’d like to see banned, too:
DOG WHISTLE— Disingenuous DemocRATS use this word a lot, referring to something only for canines, but in political contexts it now refers to an expression or statement with a secondary meaning that only a particular group of people is intended to understand.
RECUSE— This word first began ti be overused in January after Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a former senator and a top adviser to Trump’s campaign, announced he would recuse himself from any Justice Department investigation into Hillary Clinton.
DOTARD— This word came to everybody’s attention after it was used by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un during his War of Words with President Trump. It means “an old person, especially one who has become weak or senile.” Besides calling Trump a Dotard, our Crazy Rocket Man joined Disingenuous DemocRATS calling Trump “mentally deranged.”
Now Maybe Our Persons Of Consequence Can Suggest A Few Words We Can Do Without.
