Please refer to my blog, published November 6, 2017, “O True Liberals, True Liberals, wherefore art thou True Liberals?”
I guess I was a little bit ahead of my time.
Yes, it’s true…, “liberals” aren’t the real “liberals” anymore.
And they haven’t been for a while.
In a strange reversal of roles, the “conservatives” have become the new “liberals!”
Don’t believe me?
Well, let’s take a look at what’s been happening in our country.
In recent years, it is the democrats, the former liberals, who have been quashing freedom of speech and freedom of thought, at what had previously been the most liberal places in our country, our colleges and universities!
The supposed places of “higher learning!”
It is the democrats, the former liberals, who have, and who are continuing to hijack our language.
Jim Harbison of the Las Cruces Sun-News, says, “We now live in a Wikipedia society — where anyone can change the meaning of a word to satisfy some misguided or politically correct social engineering goal. Progressives have become masters of vocabulary manipulation and are constantly changing the traditional meaning of words to fit their political agenda.”
“They have co-opted the meaning of words to deceive the uninformed, uneducated and apathetic public. This is not a new concept and it has been in practice for decades. It has, however, become a more prominent tactic of the political left in recent years.”
“In the 1990s, President Clinton famously defended his conduct with Monica Lewinski by stating ‘It depends on what the meaning of the word “is” is.’ I think most people who completed high school English commonly understood the definition of the word to be the third-person singular present tense of the English language verb ‘to be.’ Its meaning was clear to everyone except the Democrats.”
“Liberals [the former liberals] have hijacked many words. For example, the word gay originally meant feelings of being ‘carefree’ or ‘happy.’ Now the most commonly accepted use of the word gay primarily refers to a homosexual person or the trait of being homosexual.”
“The term illegal immigration is no longer politically acceptable because it might reflect negatively upon some poor, misunderstood ‘migrant’ who entered the United States illegally seeking a better life. The liberal [formerly liberal] left now identifies them as undocumented immigrants, and sometimes called unregistered Democrats.”
“Even the concept and word ‘taxes’ has not gone unchanged. The government now prefers to call taxes ‘revenue enhancements,’ welfare or public assistance is now ‘entitlements,’ and hunger is now ‘food insecurity.’ Racism is no longer based on religion, color, creed but on political orientation, and anyone who challenges the liberal left’s agenda is branded a ‘racist.’”
We are also not supposed to use the gender specific terms, man, woman, mother, father, sister, brother, grandmother, or grandfather anymore.
It is the democrats, the former liberals, who are the purveyors of widespread censorship in our country.
We are seeing examples of this by democrat held companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon and Apple, just to name a few.
I have experienced the wrath of Google and Facebook myself, on numerous occasions.
And now our own government is even getting in on the act, attempting to silence any potential opposition to their agenda.
We have even heard democrats call for “reeducation camps” now, for those in opposition to their madness!
It’s actually kind of scary.
Yes, my friends…, the tables have definitely turned, and I am more than happy to assume the title of “liberal” now.
So, now when you hear these democrat, neo-fascist, socialists, communists, and Nazis in waiting referred to as “liberals,” you will know who the real “liberals” are.
It is my hope that someday, my children, their children, and their children’s children will be able to look back on what this “liberal” stood for…, true American freedom and true American liberty, and be proud of this old man.
