It used to be that common terms were just that, common with a meaning understandable to all. That is no longer the case. This breakdown in communication causes confusion. For instance:
For most of the country, a drag race involves a speed contest with high performance cars. In liberal enclaves a drag race involves sexually ambiguous individuals instituting a con job to obtain legitimacy.
Since its founding America has disdained trappings of royalty. Until recently the term, “God Save the Queen,” while popular in Great Britain, was not used in America. The term is enjoying a new vogue, although it is not used in a traditional manner.
Male and female used to be a straight forward proposition, no longer. These guys decided that they were girls. I don’t know who is crazier, the wackos pretending to be female or the idiots who enable them. I don’t care if they play dress up. Until they can get rid of that Y chromosome, they are still guys.
On the left is a violent right wing demonstration. On the right ANTIFA demonstrators protest peacefully. They only beat people with a bike lock to make their point.
Up is down, good is bad. Believing in the sanctity of life is wrong, abortion is good. Killing a person is homicide. Killing a baby is not.
The former Soviet Union inundated the populace with a variety of lies. Citizens couldn’t be made to believe the lies. However, they were required to repeat them. This is the origin of political correctness. Benjamin Franklin’s words were never more true. By knowingly repeating the lie the speaker becomes complicit in the deception.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety
