An interesting thing about reading that most of us experience pretty early on is that when you learn a new word, all of a sudden you start seeing it, when before it passed by meaninglessly. As one develops vocabulary this happens less frequently, but thanks to the left, we'll always have neologisms to learn, even if most of them are nonsensical.
Take "intersectionality" for example.
I'd never encountered this term until a few weeks ago reading a book review in the Washington Post about Rachel Dolezal. Dolezal you'll recall is the white woman who got her fifteen minutes of fame pretending to be black. I wrote a brief blog piece mocking that review and several others at the incessantly liberal paper........The problem for sensible polite people is that such jargon is confusing and stifles debate. Someone introduces "intersectionality" to a discussion, and you either have to attack them for spewing nonsense, at which point they accuse you of making an ad hominin argument, or you are compelled to continue the debate on the leftist's nonsensical terms. That's why for the left ideas like intersectionality can't wait, although they should, forever. ........Read more
My Take - I do wish more people read Animal Farm and 1984 by George Orwell. Twisting the definition of words is fundamental to leftist, along with making up new words that can mean anything they want it them to mean depending on what's convenient at the moment. Leftism is a movement of "now". Everything has to deal with "Now".
- I feel badly "now" do something.
- I want that "now", do something.
- I despise that "now", do something.
