After a century of purposely destroying language, leftists are big mad that conservatives are mocking their Newspeak.
These are the people who use term like "degrowth" for the economy and "chestfeeding birthing parents with bonus holes" for women. These are the people who rewrite actual dictionary words to make sure the definitions fit leftist ideology.
"Politically correct" was just a fancy term for "obliterate the language that binds us together," and CNN has been a huge part of that Marxist undertaking. Consider this 2022 article from CNN:
There are thousands of articles like this across legacy media. The goal is to make you believe in the new religion and its terms.
Across the US, mainstream institutions such as the American Civil Liberties Union, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and CNN are increasingly opting for gender-neutral terms such as "pregnant people," "people who get abortions" and "birthing parent" in favor of "women" when referencing pregnancy, fertility and abortion.
These shifts in terminology signal an effort to be inclusive of transgender and nonbinary people who can also get pregnant.
The article goes on to say that some "allies" disagree with these terms, then helpfully explains why they are bigots and need to get with the program.
CNN and the rest of the leftist empire have been the ones hijacking language for decades with the goal of power. As George Orwell wrote:
When the general atmosphere is bad, language must suffer. I should expect to find - this is a guess which I have not sufficient knowledge to verify - that the German, Russian and Italian languages have all deteriorated in the last ten or fifteen years, as a result of dictatorship. But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.
Yet CNN would have you believe it's the evil right-wingers, those people who love themselves, Jesus, the ol' King James, and Shakespeare, who are the problem!
From the article at the top:
Republicans are masters of verbal jiu-jitsu. It's a form of linguistic combat in which the practitioner takes a political phrase or concept popularized by their opponent and gradually turns into an unusable slur. Like the Japanese martial art known as jiu-jitsu, its devotees avoid taking opposing arguments head on and instead redirect their opponents' momentum to beat them.
A live look at a Republican taking out a Democrat with their words:
If this sounds abstract, consider the evolution of " woke." The word is defined as being "actively aware of social injustice." But it has been transformed into a contemporary scourge, one that a politician compared to a "virus more dangerous than any pandemic, hands down."
We like to call it the "Mind Virus."
Mention almost any touchstone phrase adopted by the left in recent years — "critical race theory," "diversity," "global warming," even the word "liberal" itself — and it has been redefined or tarnished by conservatives.
Conservatives are not "redefining" these words, but accurately explaining what they mean under the leftist word salad meant to hide their true intent.
This is accomplished by a basic understanding that words have objective definitions rooted in objective truth: That a tree is a tree and a man is a man and 2+2=4.
The Left is incapable of objective thought, so it veils itself with gobbledygook like this:
In the development of their Country Development Cooperation Strategies and/or Regional Development Cooperation Strategies, Missions should identify the needs, challenges, social dynamics, and structural barriers faced by LGBTQI+ people. Those considerations and ongoing stakeholder consultations should be integrated into all stages of the Program Cycle, including strategic planning, design, procurement, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation.
That mind-melting paragraph comes to you courtesy of a job description at USAID.
Republicans devote more time to turning words into weapons and do a better job of sticking to their message, says Lindsey Cormack, a political scientist who focuses on race, gender, communications and politics at Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey.
Republicans are the ones who use words as weapons??
The Iron Law of Woke Projection never misses!
Wokies always project what they are doing or feeling onto their enemies. Say there is a super corrupt Democrat president who was personally enriched through illegal business connections to Ukraine. Well, you impeach the Republican guy for that!
Or if you feel really racist and guilty, you say anyone who doesn't follow your program is the racist one.
Like Robin DiAngelo, whom CNN quotes as an expert:
Whatever the method, this form of verbal jiu-jitsu is used for one purpose, says Robin DiAngelo, author of "White Fragility," a popular book that spawned another popular liberal catchphrase.
"The function is to silence the conversation and to protect the status quo," DiAngelo says. "It doesn't have to make sense. It just has to work and get race off the table and prevent any challenges to the status quo."
That's right. The reason we right-wingers don't want to call women "bleeders," or call men who have castrated themselves "women," or subject ourselves to the nonsense of the Left's religious war against the "Eurocentric patriarchy" is because we want to keep black people down!
Great work, CNN!
How are you people still in business??
Meanwhile, Republicans continue to proudly use words and pet phrases such as "family values," "conservative" and "patriot" - no matter who or what is associated with the terms.
Okay, so there are some RINOs out there that shill under labels like "pro-life," "patriot," and "family values," so that means conservatives are trying to beat down black people.
Am I doing the math right?
I understand what a man is and a woman is. I know there's a difference. More importantly, I know truth is fixed and immovable - that the universe operates under confined and set conditions as created by a Creator. Anyone with eyes can see the same, so that no man is without excuse (let the reader understand).
But somehow I am among those who wish to effect dialectical warfare on language in an attempt to amass power??
Look at how mean we are!
The phrase "global warming" was popularized by the media and some scientists in the 1980s. It's been virtually eliminated from public discourse by verbal jiu-jitsu.
Make sure to tell those notorious right-wingers at the UN about this.
Was what happened at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, an "insurrection"? Or was it what some GOP leaders have called "legitimate political discourse"?
Was former President Trump exercising "free speech" when he questioned the 2020 presidential election results? Or did he attempt to "defraud" the US?
I was wondering if the whole point of this article was about Trump.
And will words like "diversity" and "inclusion" be turned into another version of "woke" - terms so tarnished by relentless attacks that even their proponents are reluctant to use them?
AH, THERE IT IS.
What is CNN trying to tell you here?
It's pretty obvious.
They are going to rebrand.
Commies always do. They destroy until they get pushback, then they play the victim and crawl away to plot a new angle of attack.
The only way to win is to totally reject their games entirely.
