We should take back these words and restore them to their true meaning. And while we're at it, let's take back the "rainbow," which truly symbolizes, not polymorphous perversity, but God's world-saving promise; "marriage," which means sacred fertile union, and "reproductive health," which means sacred fertile union resulting in a healthy baby.
Push back the socialists and sexual shape-shifters who have seized and twisted our words. Take back the power to define the terms. And then go out and win those hearts and minds.
I agree, they have definitely taken over these words and given them a whole new meaning. But I’m not so sure it’s possible to take them back.
I suppose the think to do is to vigorously confront these people and reveal their lies. Of course, I guess fighting back is exactly what restrictions on “hate speech” are supposed to prevent; once the left (whether gays, black radicals, Obamaites, etc.) have seized a word, it becomes part of their specially legally-protected sphere.
Mark Steyn got in trouble for merely discussing the word “Islam.”
It is insane to concede them the power to define this concept, just as they have been conceded the power to define "compassionate," "enlightened," "progressive," "reform," and every other key concept in the public forum.
We should take back these words and restore them to their true meaning.
Then we should properly demonize the term "Socialist" down into the negative connotation it truly deserves.
First off, "Socialist Justice" and "Socialist Security" should be used when describing the serious shortcomings or destructive nature of either issue.
Otherwise, definitively put "Socialist" in front of any PC term or initiative as you refer to it before you commence to rip it apart...especially when you have a hint that the recipient of your rant even marginally agrees with you.
eg: "socialist compassion" "socialist enlightenment" "socialist progressives" "socialist reform" etc.
Oh yeah...don't forget "Democratic Socialist"
