There are three primary languages used in contemporary American politics.
The first – and sadly least spoken – is plain English, which is the language spoken by those of us that actually believe the original wording of the Constitution means exactly what it says. Unfortunately, without cultural revival coming soon this common sense form of expression could become a dead language.
The second – and sadly most spoken – is political correctness. This Orwellian double-speak introduces self-contradictory terms like “marriage equality” (when any guy that’s been married for more than six months can tell you no such thing exists) and “reproductive freedom” (which doesn’t make sense since you’re killing your reproduction anyway, so why would you want the freedom to reproduce in the first place).
This language takes commonly used words and phrases and removes all common sense from them, thus changing their long-standing and previously acknowledged meaning. For example, “tolerance” used to mean I put up with you even if I disagree with you because it’s a free country. Nowadays under political correctness, “tolerance” means you lose your freedom if you don’t validate and participate in everything I do that you don’t approve of.
The third is a technocratic dialect used only by the Republicrat ruling class, and is meant to throw grassroots patriots off the scent before they realize the Republicans they’re supporting are doing practically nothing they were sent there to do. It attempts to convince conservatives that their elected representatives believe in the same plain English they do. However, the group communicating the message means something totally different than those receiving it think/hope they do, so the mind-numbing clichés intentionally gets lost in translation. Republicrat lingo is sometimes also referred to as “gibberish,” “jargon,” or the crass description for the byproduct of a bull’s bowel movement.
I have spent years observing Republicrats in their natural habitat in an earnest attempt to make sense of this foul beast wreaking havoc on humanity—and the U.S. Constitution. After much careful study, I believe I finally discovered the Republicrat Rosetta Stone, and have cracked their confusing code of complete crap. What I found is there are 10 phrases used most often by Republicrats. If we can decipher the true meaning of these 10 phrases, unlocking the rest of their sinister secrets instantly becomes much easier.
10. “Something must be done.” = Better to violate our oath of office and betray our base now rather than risk the wrath of the liberal media later.
