Leftists Hijack Language to Protect Bad Ideas
Socialists, Marxists, liberals and all their related ilk have a predilection for redefining words. They may be morally bankrupt, but they are at least smart enough to realize that regular people will not accept their distorted worldview at face value. Therefore, they must redefine their bad ideas into good ones, and redefine wholesome and practical terms into bad ones.
We’ve seen this many times throughout history:
- – Recall how the Soviet Union was supposed to be a “worker’s paradise” but was in fact one massive prison?
- – Recall how the Soviet puppet government of East Germany was called the “German Democratic Republic” when it was neither a republic nor a democracy, but instead yet another prison people were (literally) dying to get out of?
- – Recall how the “People’s Republic of China” is not a republic, nor does it in anyway belong to or is it run by the people…yet another large prison?
- – Recall the “peace loving people” of North Vietnam…who, when we gave up and left in 1975, came into the South, slaughtering and enslaving everyone in their path?
These same socialist culture engineers are hard at work here in the United States, and have been for a long time. This video outlines a few of the major ways in which they have hijacked language to better defend themselves from legitimate criticism.
