Posted on 06/02/2014 1:56:37 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
There comes a point where the Lefts calumnizing of conservatives, its endless quest to delegitimize ordinary words, and its determination to criminalize religious expression all combine to make me want to offend as many leftists as I can, in response, just for fun. But not only for fun: Deliberately choosing to offend them, and thus trying to shred their ideological straitjackets, is occasionally a necessary endeavor. We on the right must show that we need not cower; we can and must fight back.
In that spirit:
To 50-year-old men, 20-year-old females are indeed girls. Not women. Get over it.
If girls act like Lena Dunhams character on Girls, they are sluts. Anybody with such a fetish for vile exhibitionism, and for public sex, is a slut. The boys whom the shows main characters consort with, meanwhile equally exhibitionist, equally casual about sex, and equally without scruples or decency are scum. Or whatever other word you want to use to negatively characterize them. Even on a show on pay TV, their voyeuristic, shamelessly copulative behavior is intrusively vile.
Oh and a message to Miss Fluke: Dont ask us to pay for your activities, either. Sex may be your choice, but it is not our responsibility.
And if Lena Dunham or Sandra Fluke, or Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama, wants to tell us how to live, each one of them, including the girl and the once-badly-concussed older woman, is bossy, no matter what the whiners say. And if Obama thinks nobody should question him for being bossy, or indeed question his judgment or performance or (Lord forbid) his character, well, pace Jonathan Chait, Obama is arrogant. And it isnt racist to say so. (Some of us thought George W. Bush could be arrogant, too.)
Its also not racist to insist on photo IDs for voting. And it certainly isnt discriminatory. Ditto for requiring work, education, or training for welfare recipients. Ditto for saying that illegal repeat, illegal aliens should not be on the dole.
And yes, I did say aliens. That is the precise, and precisely accurate, word for illegal immigrants. We wont let the language be denuded any further just because somebodys feelings got hurt. We long ago lost the word gay. The Left is now expropriating the word marriage. Several years ago, somebody tried to take away the perfectly wonderful niggardly. Well, Im sorry, but they cant have alien, too. And if Barack Obama happens to be miserly, then, well, he is niggardly, too.
Meanwhile, back to marriage: Many on the left say not only that the state should legally recognize just about any commitment somebody might decide to solemnize, but also that the state should penalize a private decision not to bake a cake or create a bouquet for a particular commitment ceremony. Now that should be grounds for civil disobedience. Hundreds or thousands of people should stand in solidarity with the baker. Maybe somebody should relieve the bakers moral dilemma by baking a wedding cake and donating it to the happy couple in the bakers stead, to protect the baker from the government-mandated work. Tell the states overreaching commissars to butt out, get lost, or even do unnatural acts.
As for me, I might not think the ceremony is a marriage, and I might even think there are legitimate religious objections to the entire relationship but Ill gladly wish the two happy individuals well and pray that they find Gods joy. What they do is their business, not mine, as long as they dont ask for my imprimatur (or frighten the horses).
Speaking of horses, they are really effective when ridden by courageous redskins. Or maybe by fighting Irish. Those who are tough, fierce, and brave in battle might even provide a good nickname for an athletic team somewhere. I know that if I were trying to make my team seem hard to beat but wanted to stress manly virtues rather than tiger-like animalistic strength, well, I sure wouldnt hesitate to choose Seminoles or Trojans or braves or even the fighting Cossacks. Then again, what do I know? In high school I was a Newman Greenie.
(Among other sports at Newman, I ran cross country but, alas, I was never faster than a speeding bullet. Not even a speeding Washington Bullet, which would be a perfectly fine name for a basketball team.)
In a world where professional victims take offense even at the idea of teams named the Redmen (St. Johns, based not on skin but on uniform color) or Orangemen (Syracuse), perhaps the culture is too far gone into Hurt Feelings Chic for us ever to recover a sense of balance. Our colleges, for example, certainly arent inculcating in their students an open-mindedness toward other viewpoints, much less a reverence for the First Amendment or even the Constitution as a whole.
One of the worst realms in which freedom is curtailed, especially on campuses, is in the pursuit once known as dating. Nobody should minimize sexual assault, but when colleges (or the feds) go so far as to codify ordinary, confused, halting expressions of amorous interest, and to criminalize even the mildest expressions if found unwelcome by the recipient, then something is awfully wrong. By the standards on some campuses, the Beatles could be arrested for choosing the wrong girl to serenade with I Want to Hold Your Hand.
Heres better advice to anyone, male or female, who isnt physically threatened or emotionally abused by somebody with what once was known simply as a crush: Just say no, with as much clarity and kindness as you can muster, and move along. And if you cant move along, then maybe youre the one who needs to get a life.
Which is what the Left legions of faux victims need to do, if they cant bear to have anybody think or do anything that doesnt please them: Get a life. And if your feelings get hurt, find someone to hold your hand.
The book “1984” is a good example of how controlling language controls thoughts. By controlling the language to its simplest terms, the government controls the thoughts of the people so that there is never dissent.
Total government control is the goal of everything the leftist/globalists are doing and this is the absolute opposite of individual freedom.
Control language = Control thoughts = Control people

thanks for posting this.
I add to it, and call them illegal alien insurgents.
>>Its also not racist to insist on photo IDs for voting
Union elections require ID of some sort (even when voting by mail). And when a convention is held, registered Dems have to show ID to get in and vote, etc.
When you allow word meanings to change to suit political agenda’s culture loses every time.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Just ignore them.
“I add to it, and call them illegal alien insurgents.”
Not to mention an occupying cadre, waiting for the time when the occupation is declared.
I could care less, I call them the way you see them!
If the truth hurts, live with it.
Another word that has bothered me is “transgender” and all of the affiliate words like “cis”, and changing pronouns, etc.
These people are transvestites, unless they have had surgery, in which case they are eunuchs. I refuse to call anyone with a Y chromosome “she”.
