Hate Speech 101

Let’s get the terminology right, people!

Written by JB Williams


It’s bad enough that we spend so much of our time spewing hatred towards one another over politics, the one thing we all used to agree to hate together. The least we can do is get the terminology right for heavens sake…

I recently heard a young college moron [A person of mild mental retardation having a mental age of from 7 to 12 years and generally having communication and social skills enabling some degree of academic or vocational education. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive, but accurate.] refer to our President as a Nazi, [Of, relating to, controlled by, or typical of the National Socialist German Workers' Party.]

I thought to myself, I wonder if this young fool [One who is deficient in judgment, sense, or understanding] even knows what a Nazi is? Then I heard him use the term fascist [A reactionary or dictatorial person, an authoritarian political movement like Fascism, founded in 1919 by Benito Mussolini] regarding our President and it was then that I realized, this punk [Of poor quality; worthless, a young person, especially a member of a rebellious counterculture group, an inexperienced young man.] had no idea what the hell he was talking about…

But it’s not his fault exactly…

I have heard some of our nation’s leaders say similar things. I’m sure he picked it up from them, not to mention a few old pot head [marijuana smoking, drug addict, useless individual] draft dodgers [cowards who ran from responsibility] turned college professor [puffed up windbag on the perpetual road to enlightenment].

You know who I mean, those folks who don’t know the difference between a democracy [the doctrine that the numerical majority of an organized group can make decisions binding on the whole group] and a republic [a political system in which the supreme power lies in a body of citizens who can elect people to represent them, whose head of state is not a monarch; "the head of state in a republic is usually a president”].

I have listened to members of congress [our nation’s most successful get rich quick scheme] as they accuse the President of terrible deeds, like promoting his horrible capitalist [an economic system based on private ownership of capital] doctrine, as they promote there progressive [retrogressive] doctrine of socialism [an economic system based on state ownership of capital].

Sure, they don’t call it socialism, but as you can see, they hardly call anything by its rightful name… Many of them are actually promoting communism [a form of socialism that abolishes private ownership, a political theory favoring collectivism in a classless society, “one America”] today as they talk about their two America’s [those they must plunder in order to keep the others dependent upon their political power].

They call their contempt [lack of respect accompanied by a feeling of intense dislike] for our military, our Joint Chiefs, our President and his advisors a patriotic [One who loves, supports, and defends one's country] act… Hard as that is to imagine…

They accuse our President of running an autocracy [a political system governed by a single individual] or a dictatorship [a form of government in which the ruler is an absolute dictator (not restricted by a constitution or laws or opposition etc.) [syn: absolutism, oritarianism, Caesarism, despotism, monocracy, one-man rule, shogunate, Stalinism, totalitarianism, tyranny]

They say Bush is attempting to install a theocracy [a political unit governed by a deity], and they intend to continue to use their oligarchy [a political system governed by a few people, activist judges in this case] to ensure that no God is welcome anywhere in this country.

They say they have morals [judgment of the goodness or badness of human action and character, Rules or habits of conduct, especially of sexual conduct, with reference to standards of right and wrong] too… as they defend and promote immoral [Contrary to established moral principles] and perverted [Deviating from what is considered right and correct, relating to, or practicing sexual perversion] behaviors.

America has liberated [To set free, as from oppression, confinement] millions around the globe, yet they call America the terrorists [a radical who employs terror as a political weapon; usually organizes with other terrorists in small cells; often uses religion as a cover for terrorist activities]. Meanwhile, they look at real terrorists and call them insurgents [Rising in revolt against established authority, especially a government, rebelling against the leadership of a political party].

These enlightened folks [half-wit blind propagandists] couldn’t get it more wrong if they tried…

(Sorry, propagandists [The systematic propagation of a doctrine or cause or of information reflecting the views and interests of those advocating such a doctrine or cause, material disseminated by the advocates or opponents of a doctrine].)

The point is, if we are going to call each other names, lets at least get the names right! It’s hard to convince people how enlightened you are when it’s clear you can’t read a dictionary [A reference book containing an alphabetical list of words, with information given for each word, usually including meaning, pronunciation, and etymology].

Seriously, if this is the best we can do at educating [To stimulate or develop the mental or moral growth of] our young, we are in real trouble. No wonder a jackass [a man who is a stupid incompetent fool] coward [One who shows ignoble fear in the face of danger or pain] like Teddy Kennedy can hold office for 30 years.

We have to stop allowing imbeciles [A person of moderate to severe mental retardation having a mental age of from three to seven years and generally being capable of some degree of communication and performance of simple tasks under supervision] to vote. These people are the reason the rest of us are stuck with people like Teddy…

Come on now… We have to take a test before they let us drive a car. Shouldn’t we have a test to see if we are smart enough to participate in the running of our country?

For starters, if you don’t know the difference between a liberator and a terrorist, you flunk [To get a failing grade]! If you think Bush is a fascist, or are unaware that you live in the most free and prosperous nation on earth because it is a capitalist society, you flunk! No vote for you!!!

Good Lord… I can’t believe I had to write this piece… But it has gotten so bad that you cretins [obnoxious person; someone who can't do anything right] on the left have doomed yourselves to at least four more years of lunacy [various forms of insanity] by electing Howard Dean head cheerleader of your soon to be defunct [Having ceased to exist or live] party.

And you elected him…Why?

Because he was the loudest most obnoxious name caller of them all…. It wasn’t enough that he imploded [To collapse inward violently] on cue in his failed bid for the White House. You handed your entire political party over to him…

And you call Bush stupid…. ?
