Talk Like A Socialist


I love language. That is one of the reasons, I suppose, that I write. But I hate liars and I despise people who use language to manipulate people. I love the truth. Getting to the truth involves defining words. Tim pointed out just how words are manipulated in his recent post on the redefinition of marriage.

Giving the Devil his due...the Devil is very clever at fooling people and using words to twist the meanings of things. In short, the Devil is a very good liar, a slick salesman, a silver tongued orator, and a manipulator of the worst kind. I've been watching the twisting of language happen over the last several years through the "Political Correct" crowd in the media. They demonize capitalism and conservatism. They demonize individual accomplishments. They cheer "collective" endeavors. They hate traditional mores. The family has been re-defined to be the "Village." It is all very deliberate and conniving .....and I'm sick of it. I am going to call a "spade a spade" and show you how to be aware of a few of their clever tricks. The first one in the list below is how the Leftists took control of our children's word comprehension in the public school system. It is called Whole Language. Beneath the list is some info on that. Enjoy!! You are now the wiser!!!

Here is a list of Leftist Words and Phrases:

Whole Language (Use our Social engineering dictionary or you will be kicked out of school! The opposite of Half Language?)

Smart Growth (Your property will conform to our dictates or else..If you don't go along you must be dumb.)

Sustainable Environment (Otherwise you are doomed..Give me your wallet)

Lands' Conservancy (Thou shalt not be greedy, you lousy Capitalist property owners. We know who you are, we will tax you to death and, then, we'll take land off your hands)

Free Choice Act (Means you have no "Choice" whatsoever. Join the Union or go jobless)

Progress /Progressive (Think "Back in the USSR!" Old Marxism cloaked in the word "Progress")

Economic Justice (The wealthy and productive will pay for your laziness)

Social Justice (same as above)

Cap and Trade (Do as I say or I'll tax your business and take it away from you at the point of a gun)

Common Good (If you wish to succeed on your own, you are a selfish bastard)

Hope (We will tell you what to hope for, it's for your own good)

Change (Throwing away the lessons of history and leading the blind into the abyss)

Fairness Doctrine (If you dare speak out against Socialism, we are going to shut you up, stuff a sock in your mouth, and put you in a closet)

The following was published in January 2009 at the Socialist Standard, Journal of the Socialist Party of Great Britain:

"For over one hundred years the task of the socialist party has been to counter the propaganda of the status quo. Not just in ideological terms but in trying to restore meaning to political language. Even our opponents have to admit that the meaning they give to words like socialism, democracy, human nature, economics, history and politics itself is very different from ours."

I would highly recommend you also read Joe Larson's excellent article from 2001 here.

Finally, on Whole Language Reading Concepts in the Public Schools:

The politically active WL (Whole Language) teacher uses reading instruction as a convenient vehicle to aid and abet the establishment of socialist goals, policies, values, and ideals. Through bona fide WL reading instruction, students learn how to rise up and challenge “the interests and values of the Anglo, white, middle and upper classes,” Harry Giroux proclaims in the Catalog. They are prepared to oppose, writes Michael W. Apple, “the political right of the United States” by being ready to use their collective powers to change the world so that democratic [read ‘socialist'] power replaces corporate power.” Elimination of the present “economic, cultural, and social policies of business and industry” clearly is the ultimate aim of WL reading teaching.

    This doesn't explain anything. This is just a list of words someone decided to post on here with a slanted interpretation next to them in an attempt to get the full "shock value" response from people. How convenient I find your choice of words. It's a bunch of bs. I use these words and I can assure you, this is not what I am meaning when I say them. I love when I see a blogs where they scream "truth" yet use scare tactics as mean to draw people to their cause. Sad...very, very sad.

    They`re not"gay",they`re sexually challenged,just like mentally or physically challenged people.Gay means happy,I`ve seen a lot of miseralbe sexually challenged people who were anything but"gay".

  • Patriot

    Totalitarian regimes or movements maintain themselves in political
    power by means of an official all-embracing ideology and propaganda
    disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party
    that controls the state, personality cults, control over the economy,
    regulation and restriction of free discussion and criticism, the use of
    mass surveillance, and widespread use of state terrorism.

    Dear comrades, We are on to you more than you care to believe or even think.
    We see your lies and deceptions and they stink!

    PARENTS...start teaching your kids at home as much as possible, as young as possible AND if at all possible put them in a private school!!!

    Saul Alinsky was a brilliant man. Evil, but brilliant. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, everyone on the Left from the President on down is playing by his rules in the political arena. Not all liberals have read his book or know his name, but his tactics have become universal. Sadly for conservatives, when two evenly matched forces go head-to-head outside of a fairy tale, the side that tries to play nice usually ends up with its head in a box. So, don't lie or become an evil person like Alinsky, but learn from what he wrote and give the Left a taste of its own medicine. These are his rules:

    Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

    The second rule is: Never go outside the experience of your people.

    The third rule is: Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.

    The fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.

    The fourth rule carries within it the fifth rule: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

    The sixth rule is: A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

    The seventh rule is: A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

    The eighth rule: Keep the pressure on.

    The ninth rule: The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

    The tenth rule: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

    The eleventh rule is: If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.

    The twelfth rule: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

    The thirteenth rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

    In order to fight this administration, we have to fight back. First change our language back. It's not "harm's way." It's DANGER. It's not "going forward." It's IN THE FUTURE. Stop using political correctness and when someone calls you a name (see Rule 5), say, "So? I have freedom of speech and can say what I want. There is nothing in the Constitution that says you have the right to not be offended."

    • a fool

      Clever people end in Hell ~ no one can be more clever than the Father of the LIE! We must always speak up and whatever we have to say must be the truth, lead a just life, trust in God, do everything with love and gratitude for doing the right thing for the good of all. Know that God is with His own. He is faithful to His Covenant. This is our time to really understand that we must get organized, focused on the Constitution, learn it, apply it with the Holy Book ~ we must be the LIGHT with strength, courage, knowledge, plan and unity! waht do we really want to see 4 years from now? How are we to live under this... for 4 more years? a paln must be made in Spirit and in Truth!

    Many schools across the country are offering breakfast and dinner at the school for the kids - they are afraid the kids might get home-cooked meals, I guess..

    Next step: build dorms at all schools, and if the kids are lucky, they might get to see their parents on the socialist holidays. And if you refuse to allow your kids to go (home schoolers), they will be forcibly removed from your home - and if you're lucky, you'll only get 5 years hard labor at the camps in North Dakota (or Montana, or Alaska, or whatever cold place they deem suitable).

    • Patriot

      They offer breakfast and dinner at school so kids don't sit down with their family and discuss their day or what's going on in the family-unit. They want to maintain control of "their" children. Ever notice how they keep using that phrase, "my kids"?

  • Vancouver1941

    Obama is the modern day pied piper of Hamelin.For those of you who do not know google it. For those who voted for Obama/Biden ticket you are getting what you ask for besides entitlements. High unemployment,government control over just about every aspect of your life even down to the light bulbs you will have to use.Those who do not read or pay attention to history are doomed to repeat it.

    • Patriot

      Yes but are the Obama supporters the children or the rats.

      Just a rhetorical question, no need to respond :)

  • R.Young

    The true meaning of words never change only how people interpit them!

    • Patriot

      Look at the word GAY.

      It was used in it's proper meaning when I was a kid.
      Now it's been bastardized by the left and given a completely different meaning.

    "It is all very deliberate and conniving …..and I’m sick of it. I am going to call a “spade a spade”

    Now, as the Socialist Progressive/ Democrats would say "RACIST!"

    • Patriot

      Another politically correct attack against a perfectly good expression.
      I call a spade a space all the time. If someone takes offense tough.
      They need to get over it.

      Ya, they always call anyone they disagree with a racist. Shame because as some know on this board we have a few black racists who visit from time to time and once they can't engage you on an issue, as a typical good liberal, they begin the name calling. Advice, don't feed the TROLLS!

  • capitalust

    'When I use a word,' the Socialist said, in rather a scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.'

    'The question is,' said the Conservative, 'whether you can make words mean so many different things.'

    'The question is,' said the Socialist, 'which is to be master — that's all.'
    ... who knew they meant "master of the human race"....

    Obama will meet a lot of resistance as he attempts to be a leader again.

      Thank you, Don. I've been screaming this for the last four years. Lot of tough talk, lots of vitriol, no action. We'll talk talk talk and type type type, until they throw us right in the gulag, then we'll talk talk talk about what we'll do "when we get out" and then we'll die in there.

      Remember he has the power of the executive order and by advice and consent of the Senate can appoint judges of the Supreme Court. The Senate is controlled by the Democrats. Obama made it clear that he wants a new more "progressive living' constitution. While bush called our constitution just a G_d__m piece of paper, Obama said it was out of date and did not apply in todays time. Both George Soros and Cass Sunstein also called for a new more "progressive living" constitution. Finally, he has the power to declare martial law if he deems it necessary.
