Most of us have noticed that the meaning of certain words have been flipped 180 degrees to mean the complete opposite of their actual intent...as well as some ideologies and the Media not only buys it but they propagate it to the ignorant. Look at ANTIFA for instance; the most Fascist, anti-free speech and violent group got Mitt Romney to say: “One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other (Antifa) opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.” Sorry Mitt, WRONG! ANTIFA is as NAZI as it comes! But who cares about intellectual honesty as long as you can push a narrative! The term, RACIST now means just disagreeing with a Liberal. It has nothing to do with race or color anymore. BUT pandering to the minority population, like Bernie's idea of helping these minorities start their own Pot business is the new norm; "We’re gonna provide help to the African-American, Latino, Native American community to start businesses to sell legal marijuana rather than let a few corporations control the legalized marijuana market." Of course, this is NOT racist, it's pandering! Not the same.
And then there is the word, MA'AM! Don't get confused about that one or you may get fired from your job or at the very least go viral on social media! Man, woman, him, her, not what they mean anymore. And lately we have been learning that there is a new meaning for the word FLU. And this one comes at us fast and furious! Not to be confused with the seasonal flu that kills at its height, almost 650,000 people a year! The new meaning of the FLU is, Corona and people are freaking out over this new meaning of the word FLU even though the original meaning was much more deadly than I think most of us even realized. But again, it is crucial in an election year to stir up the common people into a frenzy!
We also have seen the word, Democracy, and Socialism twisted Ad Nauseam to fit an agenda and weaponize the Left in their blatant ignorance. These are the real, "low information voters!"
Which brings me to a word I have been hearing a LOT lately. Demagogue. Countless media reporters, as well as politicians, have been using this word to describe President Trump. This is another prime example of the Progressive Left's attempt to spin erudite words into their own new meaning--remember, low information voters. What is the definition of a Demagogue? "A demagogue or rabble-rouser is a leader who gains popularity in a democracy by exploiting emotions, prejudice, and ignorance to arouse the common people against elites, whipping up the passions of the crowd and shutting down reasoned deliberation."
The first red flag is the word, "democracy." Mob rules in a democracy and the specific reason our founding fathers established the Electoral college, quite simply because evidently even dead people can cause a mob, not to mention illegals holding the Mexican flag as they cast their vote! Next, let's look at "Exploiting emotions." We have seen the Media mob do this, well, forever, but it really built up steam with "Hands Up, don't shoot" Michael Brown and Obama's, "If I had a son..." comment. Then, the media went after Trump, exploiting every emotion possible, from misogyny to racism, to stealing Obama's caged children photo and blaming Trump. Now the Coronavirus fear mongering...and when Trump attempts to calm HIS Nation, he is stomped on. Can't let this good crisis go to waste! Now we simply need to look no farther than the Millionaire and Billionaire Democratic debaters to see the Rabble Rousers wanting to destroy the "elites" as they use their Apple phones to send their latest tweet about how the "horrible Capitalists must pay"...rushing home to see what Amazon has delivered them!
There is NO ROOM for "Reasoned Deliberation" with the Liberal Left. If you disagree, you are a racist or a bigot! If you call them out on their hypocrisy you are labeled INTOLERANT, NAZI, FASCIST!
It is well time that we stop allowing our words to be twisted to mean something other than what they mean. To call President Trump a, Demagogue is akin to saying that George Soros is a financially poor man.
