The Left’s Use of Manipulating Words To Propel Their Agenda

This is a follow-up to my post about ending the teaching that only whites can be racist.

Reddit user, DXGypsy, opened a thread about the left’s use of redefining words, or creating new ones, to propel their agenda. Their first example was “racism.”

Racism – changing from “hatred of another race” (which anybody can do) to “a race in a position of power over another” (which apparently only white people can do)
Also-

fascism – changed from a dictatorial oppressive government into a dictatorial oppressive right wing government.

Illegal immigrant – has become a whole myriad of word salad to avoid calling them what they are.

Undocumented immigrants. Dreamers. And now introducing Asylum Seekers. Anything in the world except the accurate “illegal”.

What are some you’ve seen them pull?

The thread is interesting. I’ve pulled some comments from the post and editing some for brevity.

ultimis-

Compassion -> Government taking money and redistributing it. Individuals are compassionate, not government programs. The end result for such “compassionate” programs rarely leave anyone better off.

“Social Justice” -> Opposite meaning of justice. Instead of justice being blind they want equitable outcomes based on randomly defined groupings they have decided are important. Obama literally stated social justice was a primary function of the SCOTUS.

“State” Capitalism ->  Oxymoron. Capitalism is defined by excluding the state ownership of production.

varemia-

Gender and sex are interchangeable and used the same way, but they insist they’re different…

…they use gender to mean dress and mannerisms related to the appearance of being a certain sex, and insist that they be treated as if they are the sex even though they insist sex and gender are completely different.

Amazing, right? Gender and sex are not the same (it can’t be in their world because men would be men no matter how they dressed and acted.) But if they dress and act like the other sex it somehow proves that they are a different sex (???) The logic is sound if you’re a progressive.

YankeeBlues21-

Compromise:
Democrat compromises just mean “we’ll ask for everything, accept a fraction without giving up anything in return, and then come back for the rest at a later date.”

PlasmaBurnz-

Homophobe: it changed from “hates gay people” to “anyone who doesn’t affirm homosexuality as completely equal to heterosexuality”

theinfamousjosh-

Assault Weapons: Has no meaning except as a catch all for “guns that I think I can get banned if I make them scary enough.”

weetchex-

Judicial Activism:

Then – “Legislating from the Bench.” Using court decisions to create laws, new meanings of laws, and to invent rights.

Now – A judge overturning an unconstitutional law that the Left likes.

Yosoff –

Rights:

They now want us to believe that having a right to something means that it must be provided to them for free.

In reality a right is a shield against governmental powers. Rights limit what the government can do to us.

  1. WORDS MATTER AND THE WAY YOU USE THEM IN A SENTENCE – I LIKE THIS ONE, JUST SEEN TODAY:

    “AUTHORITIES BELIEVE THE WOMAN STABBED HER PARENTS TO DEATH BEFORE KILLING HERSELF.”

    DO YOU MEAN AS OPPOSED TO KILLING HER PARENTS AFTER SHE KILLED HERSELF??

    THE MSM HAS MASTERED WORD MANIPULATION – I CALL IT SLEIGHT OF MOUTH (AND PEN)!!

  2. I always thought of racism as the thinking that one race was superior to others. Prejudging is certainly a part of racism. Of course suggesting that a group is incapable of racism is literally racist in itself.

    Also, -phobe means ‘fearing’, not ‘hating’. An Islamophobe fears Muslims. I don’t fear Muslims, well, unless they are jihadists trying to attack me in which case I want to defend myself and those I care about.

    And anything ‘right-wing’ should mean ‘limited government’, which fascism clearly is not.

  3. Racist: the term used by liberals in order to end an argument or debate when such liberal has no counterpoint or rebuttal. Eg. “Aren’t illegal immigrants violating federal law?” “Racist.”

  4. Extreme right wing: According to the left Mr. Rogers and Captain Kangaroo fall into that category.

  5. Hater: anyone who applies rational thought and reason to a subject of discussion instead of raw knee jerk emotion.

  6. George Orwell wouldn’t believe what this has become. He had The Party destroy words and severely limit the meanings of what were left. That restricted unapproved thoughts because there would be no words left to express badthink.

    The Left now blatantly rapes and perverts the meanings of existing words, fully aware that you see what they’re doing but daring you to say anything about it and persecuting you if you do.

  7. Gay activist: Violent homosexual who seeks to validate his acts of sexual perversion by requiring all others to accept the behavior by force.

  8. The Left’s Use of Manipulating Words To Propel Their Agenda…. Otherwise known as the art of Polishing Propaganda!

  9. We should just separate the three left coast states, call it Unicornia, and force all the leftists to move there.

  10. This crap has been going on forever…

    Gay, which used to mean happy, and even was a girl’s name

    Native American instead of the more accurate “aboriginal American”

    Ms. instead of Miss to eliminate Mrs., only it’s not pronounced the ugly mzzzzz but miss, and Missuses still use Mrs.

    Sanitation engineer, and the rest of this idiotic workman, er worker, ilk

    Womyn because lady has a connotation and wifmon means belonging to a man

    “Transsexualism” that transmogrified into “transgender” when it became obvious that you can’t change your biological sex, never mind that people don’t have “genders” — only things do

    Cis-anything, an insult to normals

    Leaders of meetings and corporate boards are now furniture — chair

    “*-challenged”, because no one can be disabled, retarded, crippled

    Midshipman… should be… midshipper? Shipper? Middie?
    http://www.capitalgazette.com/news/ph-ac-cn-title-changes-navy-midshipmen-0115-20160117-story.html

    Of course, it would be real easy to just apply “man” words to women too, as was done with the dropping of femininettes such as actress, seamstress, testatrix etc. and say, e.g. “Congressman Pelosi”…

    But that leaves “male privilege”, and everything now has to be a confusing “it” (but not really an “it” because that would be some kind of “thing”, insulting, nevermind “transgender”…

    People are “persons”… but then so are corporations… and not unborn people…

    I refuse to do this. I think it’s retarded. I encourage everyone else to refuse too.

  11. I deride the Left.
    I deride them to their faces.
    Now, I do not look for political arguments, and most of the time I just ignore obvious Leftism
    But when trapped in a conversation with Lefties I openly call them craven snowflake losers who are not qualified to have an opinion in my presence.
    They rage and froth, but I tell them their emotions have the better of them and they cannot be trusted to give a cogent argument, so they should go settle down.
    They are not pleased.

  12. Original meaning, “Social Justice” ~ The forced redistribution of wealth by government.

    “Public Option” ~ Forced to choose between lousy government programs.

    “Single Payer” ~ Forced acceptance of government run healthcare, see the VA.

    Anyone notice the common thread?

  13. ‘child’ becomes ‘kid’ becomes ‘child’ again – now that we have crying ’17’ year olds, TEENAGERS, showing up at Kennedy today. It looks as if we just imported a gang with hoodies.

    ‘Neighborhood’ becomes ‘community’

    a ‘tax’ is called an ‘appropriation’

    https://appropriations.house.gov/

    ‘Retarded’ became ‘mentally handicapped’ became ‘challenged’.

    That’s all I can think of in a minute or two.

    Paging Orwell.

  14. Red state vs blue state. They took commie red, applied it to conservatives and kept patriotic blue for themselves. Truly brilliant. Everyone jumped on board.
