What Is The Meaning Behind All Those Inflammatory Terms?

Lately the liberal media and left wing democrats have resorted to all sorts of name calling and term dropping like a bunch of Magpies squabbling over crumbs. These terms come so quickly to their tongues and writings. There’s a great chance most use these terms not fully knowing or understanding their meaning or implication. They’ve just heard others, supposedly authoritative figures, and decided they sounded good and adopted them.

These terms have been applied to most anyone who is conservative, or has a different view from those referred to above. They are weak excuses used in defense or attack rather than having any real impact from convictions in most cases.

Groups of thousands have been trained to use such terms by groups such as Organizing For Action, as they take part in demonstrations of supposed protest, in what are really attempts to simply be disruptive. They will spout what they have been brainwashed to accept as truth, when they have no serious position or understanding of issues to begin with. A pizza, beer or both, will get their allegiance.

Xenophobic-intense or irrational dislike or fear of people from other countries.

Homophobic-having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people.

The two terms above have been used to such extreme against Republicans and Independents, perhaps with the idea that repetition will make it true. What is ignored is how events and situations forced on the public against what has been part of the woof and fabric of our society, where social behavior has resorted to being forced to accept things against our will by law. This would include depriving constitutional rights for a business to choose their right to attend to whomever they choose.

That groups made up of those classifying themselves as counter culture, such as the LBGT, are being afforded non-constitutional rights by law to impose their culture and lifestyle on others who do not choose to participate.

Racist-a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

By not agreeing with someone of another culture or ethnicity, is grounds to be accused of being racist. Of course there are those who defend such a position of victimization by claiming there is no such thing as reverse racism. It’s never seem as being two sided, as though such an action can not have the reverse effect. This is never used as a manipulative tool.

Reverse racism-is a term used to describe acts of discrimination and prejudice perpetrated by racial minorities or historically oppressed ethnical groups against individuals belonging to the racial majority or historically dominant ethnical groups. In other words, it is reverse discrimination based on racial criteria.

Demagogue-or rabble-rouser is a leader in a democracy who gains popularity by exploiting prejudice and ignorance among the common people.

There are many who fit this term on the left, as there is constant upheaval with inflammatory and often empty accusations or claims, always of supposed irregularities by the opposition. Naturally this is always in ignorance of and in denial of true occurrences of irregular even illegal doings mounting up in their wake.

Bigotry-intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself.

Clearly shown on moment by moment actions, and evident by the obstructionist efforts of the DNC in Congress.

Prejudice-preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.

This perhaps is the greatest of all, since more has been invented where words can be twisted and distorted to disguise actual events than real ones. Fake News, misrepresentative photos, anything that can be distorted all based in prejudice. Not based on reason or actual experience. Rather words or actions totally twisted out of context. False propaganda. Just like the claim of the liar trying to deflect attention off themselves by some outlandish happening, that in the end proves false.

The false claim is always easy to make, and the undoing to get to the truth never results in wiping away the smear from the innocent. The DNC has become expert at smear tactics, innuendo, false accusation, unjustified claims, along with the Mediocre Smut Muckers attempting to whitewash themselves of any misleading reports or so called journalism. Yup, this is a broad brush because the ones who do it right don’t call the others out!

The right of free speech is hotly defended, whenever accusations of libel, yellow journalism or misrepresentation of the facts comes to rest at the keyboard of the press. They bathe in the morass they have made of free speech. Then there is the dare to contradict the monster we, the public, have allowed to take a firm hold as being a purveyor of truth. There is a new definition of truth and for some reason it closely resembles a lie! Surprised?

So when these activist or protestor types begin spouting off their learned slogans or showing posters someone else made, it’s just noise for the most part. Most have no idea what they’re really doing other than causing trouble. They seem to think that is democracy. Since a country without borders has nothing to defend, none of them have to do so, especially in an armed conflict. Just let a few firecrackers go off and watch how quickly they disappear!

Then they can take their xenophobic, homophobic, prejudiced, reverse racist, rabble rousing, bigoted no account selves to get their pizza and beer. Do I fit any of those maligned terms? Not those. Just try Vet, voter and conservative that has earned the right. At least I know what I believe, what it means, and what it cost!

One conflict is over. Now it’s another on the homefront.
