The Lying Language Of The Left
The politics of the left is the politics of totalitarianism. The left seeks control of everything and everyone, in every way, including what you think. In order to alter your thinking they must establish control of the language, and so they are destroying honest plain English and replacing it with manipulative and deceptive language that is designed to shape your thinking.
Here are a few examples, along with the truthful plain English terms. I encourage more examples.
Asylum seeker – Illegal Immigrant
Rainforest – The Jungle
Community Activist – Jobless Busybody
Social Entrepreneur – Jobless Busybody
Listener Supported Radio – Taxpayer Supported Radio
Evangelicals – Christians
LGBTQ – Perverts
Public/Private Partnership – State and Corporate Collusion (aka fascism)
Progressive – Communist
Gay – Homosexual
NPR Underwriters – NPR Advertisers
Affirmative Action – Institutionalized Racism
Persons of Color – Non-Whites
Minorities (even When the Majority) – Non-Whites
Public Schools – Government Schools
Goebbels would be overjoyed at the effectiveness of today’s left in transforming the language into an Orwellian NewSpeak. In fact, Orwell said it best himself:
“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make Thoughtcrime impossible because there will be no words in which to express it.” – 1984
Thank you Austin Morris for bringing up this very important issue. Little by little our language has ben hijacked by progressivism. George Carlin had a great comedy presentation about same subject: “Euphemisms”. We might want to explain to people when they use ridiculous terms what they must be trying to say.
You’re right. The sad thing is that these mendacious and tendentious terms eventually become common currency, because of the pervasiveness of Left wing culture. So, for example, they have succeeded in hijacking the old English word for carefree joy – gay – and made it into a term for homosexuality. We have lost the word forever. It’s disgusting and reprehensible.
If you have to twist and torture the language, you know you’re in the wrong.
Honest people use honest language.
I liked the ” jobless busybody” description! All others were also spot on.
Great letter Austin!! You’ve got it right!!
Awww somebody doesn’t like people who are different than himself. Poor boo boo.
The language of the modern Conservatives is even scarier….
Asylum seeker – rapists and criminals
Migrants – rapists and criminals
Low income people – lazy losers
Muslims – terrorists
Prostestors – rioters
Black Protestors – antifa rioters
Surrectionists – tourists
White Nationalists – very fine people
Peer reviewed science – lies
Real American – anyone who looks and thinks just like ME
Diversity – CRT boogeyman
News I don’t like – fake news
Low Income – lazy worthless
Racist – color blind
White Nationalist Terroists – militia groups
You really call yourself out by labeling LGBTQ as perverts. That really shows your hateful view of people that are different than yourself. Not a bit surprised.
I will always post comments to counter your narrow minded ignorance.
But LGBTQ people DO exemplify sexual perversion – by definition – don’t they? There is no hatred in my remarks either, just a commitment to honest English.
The unglued ranting is yours alone, and displays a febrile imagination. You are the one who’s guilty of prejudice, as you impute to me the very worst of motives, without a shred of evidence.
You, Sir, are the bigot.
Ignorance doesn’t exclude your bigotry ir hatred. Homosexual people are no more perverted than you and myself.
Gaslight all you want. You have the narrow closed mind that thinks being woke is an insult. But you be you.
I stand behind my reply to your bigoted letter to the editor and am embarrassed that the Rhino allowed such garbage to be printed under their noble name.
What perfect drivel.
Guess I can add another translation to the list:
Rationale Accusation – Perfect Drivel
When you learn to spell, you might be taken seriously.
How old are you? Seven?
Sexual perversion probably means what you fessed-up to. I ain’t fessing nuthin’.
Hahahaha …you da man Chris just ask you.
Have you had all your rabies shots yet brah.
At least one in this neighborhood has what is happening in MC and America.Kudos to Austin.If our local Democratic people cannot see the error of their ways then they are the stumpy ones.Buy May I say we have let these imbecile’s hijack our educational systems as well.I remember a statement from long ago “ give me your children at an earache for 3-5 years ,I will put corruption in that you will never get out.” Folks the Democrats have essentially done that to you and I and we let it happen .Where does it stop,will it be a Venezuelan society?If the conservatives and independents don’t unite and vote these people out Greensboto and beyond beyond will forever DOOMED.Plese Greensboro wise up to this MADNESS and do something!
On one hand you say public Education has failed our children yet on the other you say that teaching is so effective it ‘hijacks’ parental teachings of morals and principles to ‘…put corruption in that you never get out”?
You idiots need to make up your mind….public education is effective or not?
What a joke.
We can already see who the idiot is Chris.
Chris is not just an idiot (that much is obvious), he’s an idiot who loves the sound of his own voice. What a tiresome little blowhard.
And let me say “thank you!” to all the commenters who complimented and supported my letter.
Thanks to all.
Two of my favorite quotes from George Carlin:
“Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?”
“Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.”
Agree the stupidity of groups is bet exemplified by the Jan 6 insurrectionists.
U R right on that one!
It wasn’t an insurrection it’s called a protest, unless you watch mainstream media and believe the dems. We the people have a right to assemble and protest. The clips are coming out (if you bother to research) of people telling how they were paid to create a riot and it wasn’t the patriots, watch the senate hearing and see for yourself the fbi’s involvement. Only the blind refuse to see and they try to say it’s “progress” when it only throws us back in dark times. As a conservative I will say that I don’t blindly follow a party but do my due diligence since the government seems to think that I can’t think for myself. Only when you stand up for this country and it’s original values will you see just how far the left wants to drag you down. I bet you’ve never lived in a third world country before. I have and I learned to appreciate my freedoms and rights here in the USA and will never relinquish them willingly. To have someone come in here solely to argue what a group of common conservatives are talking about is just ignorant. You’ve argued about the vaccines and masks and now whatever Austin wants to label how he sees things. Do you ever just stop and ask yourself why you’re on this site?? Never mind that’s a dumb question on my part, you just like to gripe. People like you make me feel sorry for you because you never seem happy. Go live in another country then come back with your perspective and compare. Until then let freedom loving patriots talk amongst themselves without you trying to come across as all knowing and the only person on here who is right. I will get off my soapbox now as I’m sure you’re chomping at the bit.
But you’re right NdP. Months of rioting, looting, burning buildings, and even occupation of police stations was described by Leftists as “peaceful protest”, but one day of protest by conservatives is an attempted “insurrection”!
The hypocrisy is as galling as it is risible. But the sheep buy it, hook, line & sinker.
Your tinfoil hat slipped a bit to the crazy side.
The truth it was a bunch of nutters conned by the great carnival barker Trump and his false allegations of massive voter fraud. An much evidence is emerging of the alt right militia nutters that actually organized the breach itself that escalated the protest into an insurrection.
But if you want to believe that physically attacking Capitol police and breaking into the Capitol to stop the peaceful transfer of power is ‘just a protest’, then you ARE clearly just following the talking points of the Alt Right talking heads like a Sheep.
BUT, I do enjoy how much I stay in the minds of all you right wing sheep.
Tell it, NDP! All that name calling and distortions of truth by ‘the stumpy one’ is getting quite old.
I agree, Austin’s name calling is really getting old.
I would remind Chris that there were two million known border crossings in 2021 with untold numbers of “gotaways” from over 130 different countries allowed to declare asylum and given U.S. gov’t. debit cards and transport to any number of locations anywhere in the Country EXCEPT Washington D.C. , and Rehobeth Beach, Del. , The Hamptons, and any other area where the politically corrupt vacation or live. These illegals (that have been vetted have brought Covid, Hepatitus, Tuberculosis, Measles, and any number of other transmittable diseases with them. Additionally, some have been found to be on the Terror Watch List, some I.D.’d as Cartel members, Human Traffickers, and a wide ranging numbers of previously deported Felons convicted of everything from Murder to Rape to Pedophilia, to drug running. All under the irresponsible and intentional direction of the Biden Admin. You better believe I refuse to silently accept this Communist crap to continue to ruin our great Country. Anyone that thinks there is a better place to live, please leave!!!
I am all for strong border protection and eliminating the rule at allows illegal crossers to declare Asylum. But they are just people looking for a better life. Calling them rapists and criminals as Trump did to build support for a worthless wall is bigoted and based on ignorance and emboldened racists in our country.
Unless you are claiming the majority if the millions are all terrorists? Don’t use one offs to frame the truth of what is happening at our borders. Or the truth about terrorist attacks in the US.
Most recent terrorists attacks within you US are domestic terrorists. Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting (2012),
Centennial Olympic Park bombing, Charleston church shooting (2015),
San Bernardino shooting (2015), etc..
But you be you. Best wishes
