“Fake news” and “fascists”: Keeping up with today’s fake words

Written By | Mar 27, 2017

WASHINGTON, March 27, 2017 – Reading, watching or listening to reports written or broadcast by today’s utterly corrupt lamestream media, one is frequently struck by how many familiar words and terms in what was once American Standard English have been utterly transformed into words and terms that mean something entirely different.

Fake news, fake words and fake definitions actually have a long history, as illustrated in Leon Barritt’s 1898 editorial cartoon above. Here, newspaper publishers Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, full-length, dressed as the Yellow Kid (a popular cartoon character of the day), each push against opposite sides of a pillar of wooden blocks that spells WAR. The cartoon satirizes the Pulitzer and Hearst newspapers’ role in drumming up American public opinion to go to war with Spain. (Data and illustration via Wikipedia entry on “fake news.”)

Today, fake news, and even more devious fake words are still employed in speech and writing with the intention of misinforming the public with words that now mean something very different but still carry that earlier aura of clarity, authenticity and comfort.

The phenomenon as we see it today is actually the Gramscian transformation of language, whose goal is to alter traditional national narratives and myths into entirely different narratives and myths that promote Marxists views and eventual Marxist governments. The tactic is devious, dishonest and underhanded. It’s also proven quite effective, particularly in the United States under the previous regime, the first authentically Marxist government this country has ever seen.

As a public service, we’re offering an initial list of commonly-used fake or transformed words that are being used to transform the national argument in ways the average reader or viewer may not always grasp, which is, of course, the intention. An informed public, however, is the best bulwark against this. So in this and future columns, we’ll do our best to show how key words and phrases have been transformed and/or redefined in order to mislead the public—and particularly the young.

This and future listings appear in alpha order.

Activists: Often violent, left-wing “protestors.” Activists are always left-wing, although that modifier is almost universally forbidden. Activists are never right-wing, a modifier that is reserved for and often used with the term “extremists.”

Anonymous (sources): In current political parlance, un-named or often non-existent quoted “sources” used by left-wing “reporters” only against a Republican politician to create the false impression that a groundswell of “nonpartisan” sages strongly opposes that politician. A type of fake news.

Beleaguered: Modifier for any politician affiliated with the Republican Party who has recently experienced any kind of setback.

“Black,” “White”: Terms formerly used to designate, by color, each of the two major racial groups mandatorily involved in the ongoing, often fake “race war” promulgated by progressives as a means of assuring the required number of votes to win an election. Today, however, these racial designations are fluid, as members of either race can either self-define (as in Rachel Dolezal) or can be designated as one race or the other by progressives, who now base racial identification primarily on political affiliation. As in, “Bill Clinton was our first black president,” or, “Clarence Thomas and Shelby Steele are not black,” or “Sarah Palin is not a woman.”

Conversation: Social interaction in which condescending “progressives” lecture, hector and denounce Deplorables and other social inferiors on their many deficiencies and faults while the latter groups get to shut up.

Extremists: Any group, organization or individual not certified as “progressive.” As in “right-wing extremists.” (Note: there are no “left-wing extremists.”)

Fake news: Headlines and stories constructed from a reservoir of left-wing bias solely to demean, diminish, smear, slander and ultimately silence any organization, politician, professor, or individual not in tune with “progressive thought” via false “fact” or sheer innuendo. Today, the former mainstream media airs the bulk of fake news. These reporters and journalists turned Marxist propagandists quickly pivot and apply this term to smear upstart online opponents.

Fascist: Any individual who does not march in lockstep with “progressives.”

Feminist (21st century definition): A once-respected movement and term that in the current century has been defined down to refer to mentally deranged women whose driving force in life is a pathological hatred of men. Primary members of this left-wing hate group are often-tenured “feminist” professors lavishly supported by unknowing and deliberately uninformed American taxpayers. Having virtually nothing in common with historical feminism, 21st century feminism is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of progressivism, evidenced by its refusal to come to the aid of any woman who has been abused by any progressive.

Hitler: See “fascist.”

Nonpartisan: Any individual, organization, think-tank or legislation written and/or endorsed by Democrats, leftists or both of the above.

Progressive: A longstanding, polite left wing synonym serving as a cover for any number of Marxist or Marxist-affiliated parties, individuals, associations and organizations.

Protestors: Hard left-wing brown shirt agitators, associated acolytes, fellow-travelers and pawns led by often-paid professional Marxists, the current crop of which dresses like ninjas and promotes violence against groups or individuals they oppose. This group is sometimes known as “peaceful protestors.”

Racist: Any white person who opens his or her mouth. By extension, any individual of any race who ever disagreed with Barack Obama or who is not fully compliant with the current Progressive Rule Book. By “progressive” definition, no “person of color” can ever be a racist.

Right-wing hate group: See “fascist.” N.B.: There are no “progressive” hate groups.
