Posted on 11/16/2016 4:32:07 AM PST by Lazamataz
In the novel '1984', George Orwell developed a concept called 'NewSpeak', in which words were eliminated in order to prevent people from expressing a concept easily.
While we have not arrived there yet, I sought to find a word that expressed the false claiming of racism. I could find no such word. Therefore, I wish to coin one: Racialying.
Racialying (noun): 1. The act of falsely claiming a person, or group of people, are racists.
Racialying is an injurious and despicable act, but it is an act that has long been in the Democrat playbook. It has often been called 'playing the race card', but that is too weak a term. The word 'racialying' covers the concept much more powerfully. It is, in short, lying about racism and racist motivations.
The best example of racialying, recently, pertains to the coordinated attack of the MPM (the Ministry of Propaganda Media -- I refuse to call them the Main Stream Media any more), and is directed at Steve Bannon, who was appointed by Donald Trump to be his chief strategist and senior counselor. The racialying is contained in both the editorial and 'news' writings of CNN, NBC, and the New York Times. To wit:
An editorial published in CNN, in which Ruth Ben-Ghiat produces utterly no proof of Bannon's racism or misogyny, other than his stewardship in the Brietbart website:
Bannon is most famous for his stewardship of Breitbart, the right-wing media outlet that many liberal Americans first became aware of when its reporter, Michelle Fields, was manhandled by Trump's then-campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski. Fields then resigned when her employer tried to discredit her. This episode served as an introduction to one of Breitbart's, and Bannon's, central platforms: the denigration of women. Breitbart News uses misogyny as clickbait, blaring headlines like "There's No Hiring Bias Against Women in Tech: They Just Suck at Interviews.".... Bannon's appointment signals that racism will be a lever of the actions taken by the Trump administration. As a historian of fascism, I can tell you that Breitbart has been serving up a textbook-worthy campaign of racist indoctrination. Don't buy into it further. Otherwise, you're going to develop nearsightedness and a crick in your neck from looking away from things you'd rather not see.
In the editorial produced by the Editorial Board of the New York Times, they say:
To scroll through Breitbart headlines is to come upon a parallel universe where black people do nothing but commit crimes, immigrants rape native-born daughters, and feminists want to castrate all men. Heres a sample:Hoist It High and Proud: The Confederate Flag Proclaims a Glorious Heritage (This headline ran two weeks after a white supremacist massacred nine black churchgoers in Charleston, S.C.)", Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy, Gabby Giffords: The Gun Control Movements Human Shield
If you dont find the headlines alarming, check the reader comments.
And in an alleged "news" article, NBC states:
Under Bannon's leadership, Breitbart espoused anti-Semitic and nationalist views. The site faced regular criticism including from Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for its close ties to the "alt right," an online-based counterculture movement associated with white nationalism.
Note the common thread to the editorials: They do not actually quote Steve Bannon, they merely point to headlines and reader's comments. I'm sorry, but headlines are always written to provoke, and no person can ever be held accountable for a readers comments. This is racialying at its very worst. Even worse, the NBC 'news' story insinuates racism, produces no examples, then goes on to detail Democrat and liberal reactions. This is what passes for news at NBC??!?
Let us look at Steve Bannon's actual quotes, then. I looked at the most 'egregious' Bannon statements. I agree wholeheartedly with three of them, and the fourth is an allegation by a divorcing wife:
As far as the alleged quote by a divorcing wife, anyone who has been through a divorce -- or even been witness to one -- knows the first casualty is truth.
>In August 2016, when Bannon was hired to lead Trump's campaign, media outlets reported that his former wife had stated in divorce filings that Bannon had made derogatory statements about Jewish people. According to several news outlets, Mary Louise Piccard quoted him in 2007 divorce records as saying he didn't want the couple's children attending Archer School for Girls in Los Angeles because of the number of Jewish children there, : The biggest problem he had with Archer is the number of Jews that attend... I told him that there are children who are Jewish at (a competing school), and he asked me what the percentage was. I told him that I didn't know because it wasn't an issue for me as I am not raising the girls to be either anti-Semitic or prejudiced against anyone.

The proof offered of Bannon's antisemitism? Only the word of a divorcing wife.
Racialying is a very serious and egregious offense against a person's character. It is time we use this label, and time we fight back against the lies. It is time that the person or group who commits the act of racialying, be held up to scorn, ridicule, and even slander and libel lawsuits.
Enough is enough.

I lie about my ex-wife all the time. I say she was a nice person to respect my daughter and end conversation. Who wants someone talking negatively about their mom.
What do you mean “newspeak” isn’t here yet? Of course it is. Have you tried calling someone or something “gay” recently, meaning cheery, happy, upbeat?
Matt, I feel this is a good piece. If you are inclined, and since you have such a large Facebook following, would you consider posting this to your Facebook page?
Please send in an application to the Trump team for the position of speechwriter. Your command of the English language are stupendous. tee hee.
Dayum! Over 1000 words in this editorial, and you pick out the one thing you disagree with?
Tough audience. LOL
I'd love that kind of job! Speechwriter for President Trump! Who can get me in there?
Good stuff, a bunch of it I have already used this morning in a Facebook interaction. While you may never rise to be an Orwell in our time, I recognize and acknowledge your new derivations on “Racialying” and the “Ministry of Propaganda Ministry” as ground-breaking in furthering the conversation in search of understanding the daily manipulations that we get via most media.
The creation or adoption of words to express concepts is something the left excels at. I seek to match them.
And no, I shall never be 'George Orwell'-quality. I am just an a-hole with a keyboard. :)
In fact, if I ever DO rise to any level of literary prominence, that shall be my motto. :)
I want to skip the interview process. :)
Since this is a vanity, I am not going to respond. If I did though I would say racealying would be comparative to race-baiting wouldn’t it? But thankfully I will not encourage you with your vanities regardless of the temptation.
Good man. First, do no harm.
DON’T ENCOURAGE HIM!
And whatever you do, DON’T BUMP THIS THREAD!
Your are funny words. I are likeing them so muych do more do more.I are not legal in this country.....
Good idea. They are trying to turn patriotism into racism by calling us “white nationalists.”
1. We can’t help our skin color. Black, white, red, yellow or brown, we were born to parents we didn’t choose.
2. They are trying to make patriotism into a pejorative by calling it nationalism. News flash for libtard racial-liars: we are not ashamed to put our own nation first.
3. If we are “white nationalists,” our enemies must be “international socialists,” aka Communists. Or as I call them, Communist Democrats, or CommieRats for short.
I are a editoryal riter. I thenk u four you’re nice werdz.
