Skip to comments.Hate Speech 101: Letís get the terminology right, people!
Posted on 02/23/2005 7:44:26 PM PST by CHARLITE
Its bad enough that we spend so much of our time spewing hatred towards one another over politics, the one thing we all used to agree to hate together. The least we can do is get the terminology right for heavens sake
I recently heard a young college moron [A person of mild mental retardation having a mental age of from 7 to 12 years and generally having communication and social skills enabling some degree of academic or vocational education. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive, but accurate.] refer to our President as a Nazi, [Of, relating to, controlled by, or typical of the National Socialist German Workers' Party.]
I thought to myself, I wonder if this young fool [One who is deficient in judgment, sense, or understanding] even knows what a Nazi is? Then I heard him use the term fascist [A reactionary or dictatorial person, an authoritarian political movement like Fascism, founded in 1919 by Benito Mussolini] regarding our President and it was then that I realized, this punk [Of poor quality; worthless, a young person, especially a member of a rebellious counterculture group, an inexperienced young man.] had no idea what the hell he was talking about
But its not his fault exactly
I have heard some of our nations leaders say similar things. Im sure he picked it up from them, not to mention a few old pot head [marijuana smoking, drug addict, useless individual] draft dodgers [cowards who ran from responsibility] turned college professor [puffed up windbag on the perpetual road to enlightenment].
You know who I mean, those folks who dont know the difference between a democracy [the doctrine that the numerical majority of an organized group can make decisions binding on the whole group] and a republic [a political system in which the supreme power lies in a body of citizens who can elect people to represent them, whose head of state is not a monarch; "the head of state in a republic is usually a president].
I have listened to members of congress [our nations most successful get rich quick scheme] as they accuse the President of terrible deeds, like promoting his horrible capitalist [an economic system based on private ownership of capital] doctrine, as they promote there progressive [retrogressive] doctrine of socialism [an economic system based on state ownership of capital].
Sure, they dont call it socialism, but as you can see, they hardly call anything by its rightful name Many of them are actually promoting communism [a form of socialism that abolishes private ownership, a political theory favoring collectivism in a classless society, one America] today as they talk about their two Americas [those they must plunder in order to keep the others dependent upon their political power].
They call their contempt [lack of respect accompanied by a feeling of intense dislike] for our military, our Joint Chiefs, our President and his advisors a patriotic [One who loves, supports, and defends one's country] act Hard as that is to imagine
They accuse our President of running an autocracy [a political system governed by a single individual] or a dictatorship [a form of government in which the ruler is an absolute dictator (not restricted by a constitution or laws or opposition etc.) [syn: absolutism, authoritarianism, Caesarism, despotism, monocracy, one-man rule, shogunate, Stalinism, totalitarianism, tyranny]
They say Bush is attempting to install a theocracy [a political unit governed by a deity], and they intend to continue to use their oligarchy [a political system governed by a few people, activist judges in this case] to ensure that no God is welcome anywhere in this country.
They say they have morals [judgment of the goodness or badness of human action and character, Rules or habits of conduct, especially of sexual conduct, with reference to standards of right and wrong] too as they defend and promote immoral [Contrary to established moral principles] and perverted [Deviating from what is considered right and correct, relating to, or practicing sexual perversion] behaviors.
America has liberated [To set free, as from oppression, confinement] millions around the globe, yet they call America the terrorists [a radical who employs terror as a political weapon; usually organizes with other terrorists in small cells; often uses religion as a cover for terrorist activities]. Meanwhile, they look at real terrorists and call them insurgents [Rising in revolt against established authority, especially a government, rebelling against the leadership of a political party].
These enlightened folks [half-wit blind propagandists] couldnt get it more wrong if they tried
(Sorry, propagandists [The systematic propagation of a doctrine or cause or of information reflecting the views and interests of those advocating such a doctrine or cause, material disseminated by the advocates or opponents of a doctrine].)
The point is, if we are going to call each other names, lets at least get the names right! Its hard to convince people how enlightened you are when its clear you cant read a dictionary [A reference book containing an alphabetical list of words, with information given for each word, usually including meaning, pronunciation, and etymology].
Seriously, if this is the best we can do at educating [To stimulate or develop the mental or moral growth of] our young, we are in real trouble. No wonder a jackass [a man who is a stupid incompetent fool] coward [One who shows ignoble fear in the face of danger or pain] like Teddy Kennedy can hold office for 30 years.
We have to stop allowing imbeciles [A person of moderate to severe mental retardation having a mental age of from three to seven years and generally being capable of some degree of communication and performance of simple tasks under supervision] to vote. These people are the reason the rest of us are stuck with people like Teddy
Come on now
We have to take a test before they let us drive a car. Shouldnt we have a test to see if we are smart enough to participate in the running of our country?
For starters, if you dont know the difference between a liberator and a terrorist, you flunk [To get a failing grade]! If you think Bush is a fascist, or are unaware that you live in the most free and prosperous nation on earth because it is a capitalist society, you flunk! No vote for you!!!
Good Lord I cant believe I had to write this piece But it has gotten so bad that you cretins [obnoxious person; someone who can't do anything right] on the left have doomed yourselves to at least four more years of lunacy [various forms of insanity] by electing Howard Dean head cheerleader of your soon to be defunct [Having ceased to exist or live] party.
And you elected him
Because he was the loudest most obnoxious name caller of them all . It wasnt enough that he imploded [To collapse inward violently] on cue in his failed bid for the White House. You handed your entire political party over to him
And you call Bush stupid

Can you imagine what kind of a liberal media free-for-all would ensue, if George W. Bush screamed, "I hate Democrats and everything they stand for!" ???
It must be because the media is owned by the Republican Party. /sarcasm
Because the media happens to agree with him.
. . .if only. . .
Thanx for that!
If you love sarcasm, this is one for you!
The Party of Convictions...Sort Of
"On the surface, the Dean coronation looks a lot like political suicide. (Picture the Democratic Party as an Oldsmobile being driven across a Chappaquiddick bridge with Howard Dean reprising the role of the inebriated Ted Kennedy.)
In order to put Dean in context, think about this--The Democrats ran John Kerry for President because he was "more electable" than Doctor Dean.
Kerry, a man who gained his political notoriety by consorting with communists in Vietnam and a military wannabee who fabricated stories of heroism, injury, and a top secret 1968 Christmas vacation to Cambodia under President Nixon to gain attention.
Of course, the problem with all of that was that there were no missions into Cambodia and nothing other than Kerry's delusions to support it. I'm still waiting for "National Lampoon's Cambodian Christmas Vacation," starring Chevy Chase as John Kerry. There is also the tiny little problem that Nixon was not President in 1968. Details, details!"
The whole column on OpEds.com is stellar. Lotsa laffs! Highly recommend!
priceless (the odd typo aside)
"vern" would love this.
Ping to me.
The above is from Federalist Patriot, Feb. 23, '05
It seems even Dean himself is willing to overlook the obvious, saying, "That's frankly why George Bush was successful, because he gave the 'appearance' that he had some deep-seated convictions. If you want to excite people in politics...you've got to be a party of convictions."
Howard Dean suffers from Wile E. Coyote Syndrome: When the Acme rocket blows up in your face, light ANOTHER fuse.
OMG! How did you make that horse look like Camilla?
