<< I think beating on people is NOT a game. >>
No, it is definitely not a game. And no pundit should ever refer to the behavior as a ‘game.’
If words were not powerful, there would not be a huge advertising industry to promote products.
Conservatives, too often (almost always), allow the leftists to control the language of any situation. One quick example: “government money” should always be called “taxpayers’ money.
If words did not have power to control thought, Obama would not have pivoted last week to call his health care plan the Affordable Care Act instead of Obamacare.
The point is well taken. Although the perps refer to this violence as a game, it is deadly serious to its victims. Referring to it as Polar Bear Hunting reveals the true racial nature of the phenomenon.
