There was the incident at Ft Hood, where a young Army psychiatrist “snapped” (perhaps due to “the hateful taunts from his peers or the stress of following “a more submissive faith”, but who really knows …)
killing err … “dispatching a number of fellow members of the military to an alternate plane of existence”, disabling many more.
Then there is our on going “aggressive stance” in the
War on Terror hmmmm, “deliberate actions against maladjusted malcontents who are adherents to the religion of peace”. Yeah, that sounds so much better and even handed doesn’t it?
Closer to home we have those who practice “alternate life styles”, expressing a strong desire to be able to “bond in a ceremony traditionally accorded exclusively to two individuals of opposite gender.” Any
honest debate or discussion “hate-filled rhetoric” should, of course, be immediately derided and dismissed from public discourse.
This same line of reasoning is equally applied to
Global Warming and associated fabrications ahhh … “Climate Change and the interchange of peer reviewed electronic text and enhanced documentation”. (Though on this particular item, it appears the curtain has been pulled back enough to expose the charlatans for who and what they really are. At least the opportunity is there to do so, whether or not this is followed up on is something for another day.)
Remember back when we used words which meant exactly what was intended? When, for example, some one lied, they were (surprise!!), if found out, called a liar! There were no “weasel words” used. You used to live (and sometimes died) by what you said. Now there is an increasing loss of clarity, black and white fading into a misty gray fog. When this is done to the innocuous (dumb blonds are “really” ‘intellectually challenged individuals of a lighter hair color’) perhaps it can be shrugged off. But when there are those who seek to not only remove our way of life, our culture, from the face of the earth, along with our very civilization and words are twisted to make this cancer appear to be anything but what it really is; than we do so at our peril.
