The Politics of Liberal Perversion of Language

“Politics and the English Language” (1946) is an essay by George Orwell that criticized the “ugly and inaccurate” written English of his time and examines the connection between political orthodoxies and the debasement of language. The essay focuses on political language, which, according to Orwell, “is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind”. Orwell believed that the language used was necessarily vague or meaningless because it was intended to hide the truth rather than express it (source).

Recently I was called a homophobe . I responded with this: " Apparently you are too stupid to know what a “phobia” is. A “phobia” is a fear, like fear of heights, fear of closed spaces, etc. I have no fear of homosexuals. I call them out for the sick perverts they are. It is cowards like YOU who have the fear, fear of the TRUTH. "

A phobia is a mental condition. As I said, Orwell’s essay focuses on political language which is “designed to make lies sound truthful”, and of course the opposite too, to make the truth sound like a lie.

In this case, the normal person, me has the mental problem - the “phobia” - and the person with the mental disorder, the homosexual, is the normal person. (NOTE: Do not derail this thread onto the topic of homosexuality. The topic is “The Politics of Liberal Perversion of Language.”)

Other examples of this perversion of language? Calling things racist that are not racist. Other sorts of phobias, like Islamophobia. Generally describing things in a manner that are absolutely false, such as the famous Democrat line, “Tax Cuts for the Rich”, used to describe tax cuts for businesses as incentives for growth.
Of course, there is this perversion, the phrase “Undocumented Immigrants”, used to describe Illegal Aliens . “Alien” is a legal term to describe a non-citizen. But by calling Illegal Aliens “Immigrants”, the Left lumps them in with legal immigrants for the purpose of saying the Republicans are anti-Immigrant. That, of course, is a lie. Remember: Orwell’s essay focuses on political language which is “designed to make lies sound truthful”, and make the truth sound like a lie. In this case, the lie is that Illegal Aliens are the same as Legal Immigrants, and the lie is also that Republicans are anti-Immigrant.

FAKE NEWS: ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

Trump, as usual, is totally correct. This sort of Orwellian perversion of language which Fake News outlets like CNN and MSNBC use on a daily basis really is the enemy of the people. It makes the people believe propaganda & lies, and then they vote based on those lies.

I will always call out the liars in this forum who engage in this debasement of language, and I will start linking back to this OP as a reminder.

Nope, because this impeachment IS a coup, based totally on lies and hate. Lies and hate are the fuel of todays Democrat Fascist Party

Thats not a denial of what I posted. Lost for a snappy socialist comeback?

Only to people who hate the truth.

It isn’t. Words have meanings. Impeachment is a constitutional process, not a coup.

Should I start a thread about misuse of words, too?

Calm down, you’re going to need to pace yourself.

Orwell’s Doublespeak: The Language of the Left
https://canadafreepress.com/article/orwells-doublespeak-the-language-of-the-left

QUOTE: George Orwell introduced the language of doublespeak in his dystopian novel “1984” published in 1949. Doublespeak is the language of opposites. Up is down and down is up.

The word doublespeak derives from two Orwellian words “doublethink” and “newspeak.” Doublethink is when a person accepts two mutually contradictory thoughts as correct without being aware or troubled by the glaring contradiction between them. Doublethink statements like “war is peace” “freedom is slavery” “ignorance is strength” are made without discomfort. Newspeak is a method of controlling thought through language - it is the language of fake news. Doublespeak combines doublethink and newspeak in language that deliberately obscures, distorts, disguises, or reverses the meaning of words to manipulate public opinion in a mass social engineering effort.

Orwellian doublespeak is the language of the hard Left leading a coup against Western democracies and their national sovereignty. Barack Obama spoke doublespeak when he promised hope and change. Obama deliberately obscured and disguised his hope for changing American democracy into socialism. Most Americans understood hope and change to mean a better life and the realization of the American dream - a hope to improve our democracy not to destroy it.

The left-wing liberal agenda seeks to destroy the socio-political infrastructure of American democracy and transform it into a dependent socialist state with cradle to grave control by the government. Their strategy of destruction is to target the traditional American institutions of family, religion, and education that promote independence, adulthood, individualism, and ego strength - the qualities that made America great and support American democracy and sovereignty.

The 21st century Leftist progressives speak doublespeak - their “progressive” narrative is entirely regressive.

The regressive infantile impulses and temper tantrums exhibited by left-wing liberals today cannot seriously be called “progressive” except by double-speaking Leftists who believe that going backwards is going forward. REGRESSIVE is the accurate word for the infantile behavior and impulses that inform the “progressive” Left. Safe spaces, Play-Doh and counseling for disappointment, segregated black-only lounges are all regressive demands of an increasingly regressed population.

To understand why the progressives speak doublespeak, their goals, who benefits, and the purpose of relabeling up as down and down as up it is necessary to translate doublespeak into colloquial English …(SNIP)

If a tire iron is being used as a weapon then its a weapon. If impeachment is being used to facilitate a coup, them its a coup. I am sorry if you cannot handle the fact that you follow a party of fascist socialist extremist Democrats who hate free and fair elections, who are pathological liars about Trump, who are baby-killers, socialists, pervert lovers and the rest, but thats your issue to grapple with not mine

There was a nice thread op awhile back on why does conservatives let the left control the language.

There are more definitions. Don’t cherry pick.

That is a nice thread, I missed it.

Let’s add in some more perverions: White Nationalism, is another fake phony term.

Nationalism is a GOOD thing, the opposite of globalism. I am a Nationalist, I put my nation first above others. Globalists create chaos like we see at the border - the no borders gang.

White Supremacy is a thing, but there are o few of them that they are essentially 0% of the population, and the fake News’ media obsession with them is nonsensical.There are not enough of them to fill up my bathroom.

But White Nationalism? This is an Orwellian perversion of language. White Nationalism is the Left’s attempt to make Nationalism a racial thing. It is not. By using this term, if you put America First like Trump does then you get branded a racist. Such is the evil of the Left.

Here’s another perversion which, as a woman, makes me sick: Choice.

Choice and Healthcare and Rights have been used to describe what is actually the murder of an innocent human being. Abortion is the fundamental denial of rights to the human being that is being killed, namely his or her Right to Life.

And healthcare? Healthcare is meant to save life not take it. Calling Abortion "Healthcare"is the ultimate language perversion.

Let us remember this from the OP:

Oh, yes indeed. The Left wants to hide what is actually a holocaust beyond the wildest dreams of Hitler or Stalin. They weep for a few kids in detention, and celebrate the slaughter of millions.
