A Language Translation for Normal People in a Liberal-Dominated Culture

With the cultural dominance of liberalism through the “mainstream” media and the intelligentsia, it was determined that there was a need to assist the average, patriotic, common-sense American in translating the confusing, paradoxical, often contradictory-to-reality politically-correct language used by modern liberals.

The following linguistic translations are offered to assist the average American in understanding. The attempt was to formulate accurate and useful translations from an objective point of view, but keeping in mind how the modern liberal uses the term.

ad hominem –  a type of attack leveled against a liberal which exposes the immorality or illogic of the liberal’s actions or espoused opinion;

bad – anything conservative, American, traditional or Christian;

bullying – telling the truth about homosexual behavior, or the actions or statements of a homosexual

centrist – a position on the Left/Right political spectrum (with -10 being the Left-most position, 0 being the middle, and +10 being the Right-most position) somewhere to the right of -10 and to the left of 0. See also: moderate.  Illustration:

Figure 1

compromise – (1) doing what liberals want; (2) doing things the way liberals expect; (3) capitulating to liberals’ demands; (4) what conservatives and/or Republicans are expected to do (see definitions 1-3);

conservative - 1: an evil, racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic, knuckle-dragging, scientifically-illiterate, who refuses to agree with liberals; (2) when used by a moderately liberal person to describe themselves, it means “good old-fashioned conservative”

controversial - something which has been done a certain way for a very long time; something almost universally recognized as the right thing to do; traditional; conservative

diversity - favoring a particular person or group based on sex, race, sexual behavior or another preferred demographic; note that “diversity” deliberately excludes non-favored demographic groups, e.g. whites, males, Christians, etc.

evolution – a fantasy held by many liberals which, devoid of any scientific proof whatsoever, contends that all organisms in existence today evolved from lower organisms (even though this has never been observed in the field or in the laboratory), and that life originally sprang into existence from lifeless materials (even though this also has never been observed in the field or in the laboratory, even when aided by the intelligent design of human beings).  This fantasy is usually accompanied by “preceding” fantasies which contend that matter spontaneously organized itself into more organized and complex forms (e.g. stars and planets) (even though this has never been observed in the field or in the laboratory), and that matter spontaneously came into existence from nothing (though this, also, has never been observed in the field or in the laboratory).  This fantasy is rigidly pronounced to be “science” by its faithful.

extremist – someone who stands for the values that made America the greatest nation on earth; someone who believes in common sense; a person who wants to do what is proven to work; Examples: conservatives, Christians, etc.

free speech –  speech which has been vetted and approved by proper governmental authorities.  Wealthy people, conservatives (definition #1), fundigelicals, and other intolerant people are allowed access to this only in small, controlled doses.  Those who are tolerant or mainstream may exercise free speech without criticism or restraint, especially when used to promote immoral, anti-American or obscene information.

fundigelical - a serious, committed Christian who believes in the fundamental teachings of the Bible (authority of God, inerrancy of Scripture, human’s need for a Savior, telling others about God, obedience to God’s commands, etc.). Used as a term of scorn by those who despise the basic teachings of the Bible and would rather be left to determine their own morality or lack thereof.

get things done – surrender, capitulate, appease, go along, esp. with the liberal agenda. Example: “He doesn’t spend time on divisiveness and partisan bickering.  He’s a guy who can reach across the aisle and get things done.”

good –  anything immoral or which permits immoral behavior, or is opposed to anything conservative, traditional, American or Christian;

hate - to tell the truth about or criticize, esp.  the truth about immoral behavior. Can be considered “negative campaigning” (see definition) if employed against a liberal candidate;

hate speech – see “hate

intolerance -  the act of telling the truth about an immoral, unhealthy, dangerous, unwise or un-American attitude or behavior. Intolerance is a disorder which affects only conservatives (definition #1); mainstream political adherents or liberals are immune to this disorder, though some conservatives may confuse the tolerance displayed by mainstreamers with intolerance.  Intolerance is sometimes synonymous with slime (see definition).

judicial activism – when a judge upholds longstanding existing law, a state constitution or the U.S. Constitution over a new and clearly unconstitutional law

liberal - an extinct type of political adherent (many believe they never existed), rumored to believe in: extensive government power, minimal freedom for average Americans, loathing American values, admiration for America’s enemies, etc. Note: the media can never find one of these when discussing issues from an ideological perspective; only conservatives and “moderates” now exist

mainstream - a political sphere once known as “liberal” but now used to signal the herd as to what it should believe and where it should be going

mean – to point out the truth; to expose liberal fallacies or deceptions;  to champion traditional American values; to expect normalcy; to uphold the standard; to speak plainly; also known as mean-spirited

media bias – a phenomenon of animosity toward normal and traditional American values; most Americans observe the phenomenon at major news outlets like ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post and others, but liberals are usually unable to observe the phenomenon.  Journalists are most vulnerable to blindness in this area.

moderate - (noun) a liberal who won’t admit it;  (adjective) a liberal political philosophy somewhere to the right of Karl Marx, usually professed by a liberal who won’t admit it (see also “centrist“);

negative campaigning – to tell the truth about a political opponent’s bad record or embrace of bad ideas.  Example: “My opponent voted yes on 11 of the last 12 tax hike bills. He’s pro-tax increase.”

nutjob - a conservative who unapologetically states a truth which exposes liberal misconduct or bad ideas. Usually the more patriotic, common-sense or obvious the statement, the more the “nutjob” designation is applied.

path to citizenship – a phrase used when discussing illegal aliens, meaning “amnesty,” or ignoring the law and the national borders in order to allow illegal aliens to remain in our country and eventually vote Democrat.

patriotic –  (1) the act of loathing one’s own country (2) working to weaken or diminish the strength of one’s own country, e.g. (a) utilizing moral equivalency to make your own country look as bad as a rogue nation or group of terrorists, (b) to undermine your own country’s military strength and commitment in time of war, (c) to impede your own country’s access to its own natural resources or freedom to purchase natural resources from another country, (d) emphasizing every moral failure–real or perceived–by your own country;

Pragmatic – selling out the people’s values and priorities while maintaining principle (please ignore the contradiction)

Progressive – a political term used to obfuscate the liberal nature of an idea or initiative, or to mislead about a person’s liberal leanings.  “Progressive” ideology embraces regressive philosophies the American founders left behind including: elitism, the belief that the masses should be ruled by their betters, that most people are too stupid to run their own lives, that autocratic government is preferable to individual freedom, that government should have unlimited power to do as it pleases, that heavy taxation is good for a people, and that all regular citizens are serfs belonging to the state;

Reconsider – to sell out your stated values because it is more convenient to do that than to stand behind them; e.g. “I know that I said I believed in limited government, but I’ve ‘reconsidered’ my position and will be voting for that big spending increase for that new massive government program.”

reform -  to make more liberal; to socialize; to change a thing in the opposite direction from common sense;

Republican – (a) when used by a Democrat or other openly liberal person, it is a term to describe someone who is a racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe, Bible-thumper, flat-earther, hater, selfish, greedy, or other intellectually deficient primitive; (b) when used by a liberal who calls themselves a “Republican,” it is a term to describe someone who supports socialized health care while decrying socialized health care, believes illegal aliens deserve amnesty and free benefits at taxpayer expense, believes welfare recipients should be able to collect money from the taxpayers while using drugs, who seeks to impede Second Amendment rights for others while lauding Second Amendment rights for themselves, who believes in imposing global warming-related regulations and penalties on businesses and individuals, who believes abortion should be safe/legal/rare while making it as easy as possible for a mother to kill her own unborn child, who says they don’t believe in allowing homosexuals to counterfeit marriage while undermining protections of marriage and allowing homosexuals to counterfeit marriage,  who says they believe in transparent government while making it as difficult as possible for the taxpayers to learn how their representatives vote, who says they oppose tax increases while passing new “fees” on the public and jealously guarding their prerogative to create new taxes (or “fees”) in the future, who lauds their membership in the Republican Party while ignoring the GOP platform and long-established Republican values, etc.

“right wing ideology” – what normal, educated Americans understand as “in keeping with the U.S. Constitution,” or “according to American traditions,” or “the principles upon which the United States was founded.”  For the modern liberal, these things understood by most Americans are to be eradicated by any means possible, legal or otherwise.

science - the study of the world around us which is to be used to promote liberal ideas where possible, and ignored where inconvenient. Examples: science shows the uniqueness of human life from conception, but the “fetus” is only a “blastocyst;” multiple studies show links between abortion and breast cancer, infertility, and mental health problems…but there is no danger associated with abortion; science indicates homosexual behavior is contrary to biology and very dangerous…but yet it is “normal, natural and healthy;” we know the age of the earth is 4.5 billion years old…though no one was there and the only “science” we have to determine this is based purely on several unproven and unprovable assumptions.

“separation of church and state” – stated another way, this means “rejection of moral influence on law and government.”   Since America was founded by Christians on Christian values, and since there is no “separation of church and state” mentioned in the U.S. Constitution (only a grossly distorted statement by Thomas Jefferson in a letter to Baptists in Danbury to assure them that the government would not interfere with their religious freedom), and since liberals always employ their “separation of church and state” club anytime someone argues in favor of a moral position in public policy, the meaning of this phrase becomes clear after some time spent on political observation.

slime – the act of revealing unpleasant facts about a liberal or a liberal’s voting record; to reveal facts about a liberal or a liberal’s voting record

sustainability - a newer form of radical environmentalism that negatively affects every area of your life through the use of various regulations; uses stealth to mask environmentalism inside seemingly important and necessary business, civic and residential regulations

swiftboat -  to tell unpleasant truths about, to expose the record of, to decloak a liberal who attempts to hide their liberal record behind military service, to refuse to accept self-aggrandizements at face value

tolerance -  the act of celebrating immoral behavior. It should be noted that tolerance is only required of normal Americans toward immoral and un-American behavior.  The act of condemning normal Americans for failure to exercise tolerance is known as promotion of tolerance, and should not be confused with intolerance.

women’s health services - what regular Americans call “abortion,” considered a vital medical service by the Left. This necessity is due to the fact that the Left views pregnancy as a harsh medical condition, an STD involving a parasitical infestation of a life form similar to but genetically distinct from the host.  Related term: emergency, as in   “emergency contraception,” a medical treatment employed to prevent the aforementioned parasitical infestation after a night of irresponsible sex. Unfettered access to emergency contraception is considered a vital component of women’s health services.

Enriching the Bad Guys

Bob Ellis

President Obama's decision to bail out the Marxist thugs in Cuba has me thinking again. Thinking again, as I have thought since at least the 90s (when congress normalized trade relations with the communist regime in China...who are still a bunch of oppressive communist thugs, 20 years later) about why in the world a self-respecting, freedom-loving nation should EVER want anything whatsoever to do with an oppressive Marxist regime.

I agree with Whoopi Goldberg!

Woodrow Wilcox

On “The View” TV program on December 17, 2014, Whoopi Goldberg said that our prayers go to the families in Pakistan who lost their children and others in the attack on a school in Pakistan by the Taliban. She added that Americans who want to support or help the Taliban or ISIS should realize that those groups support such acts of terror. Whoopi ended the comment by telling the audience that people in the U.S. who like the Taliban or ISIS should leave because we don’t need them in this country.

I’m White, and a Victim of Racism

Bob Ellis

Hot Air examines a goofy People interview that Barack and Michelle Obama gave in which they cited examples of the horrible racism to which they've been subjected. I'm a victim, just like Michelle Obama.

Senator Cruz: Why I tried to block Obama’s amnesty

Guest Author

Amnesty is wrong, and it is unfair. It’s unfair to millions of legal immigrants, to the 92 million Americans who are currently not in the labor force, and to minority communities across the nation struggling with record unemployment. Even more troubling was how the amnesty was decreed: by executive fiat, directly contrary to federal immigration law and to the Constitution.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
