Reclaiming my language

Recommended Posts

Am I being a pedantic literalist or do I notice a trend among progressives to redefine language to mean something different, or even opposite to what it actually says. It leaves me with a feeling of being gaslit, disorientated, cognitive dissonance at the shift in meanings. So I'm starting to challenge their use of language as part of deconstructing the whole agenda. Some examples: 
 

Racism, sexism. Adding the suffix '-ism' to the end of a word is supposed to mean a system of thought or social movement associated with the word, not giving it a negative meaning of discrimination. Similarly, the suffix '-ist' is a person who's involved in the '-ism'.   For example, Buddhism means the religion based on the teachings of the Buddha, and a Buddhist is a member of the religion. So racism should mean something like the subject of human racial identity, and racists are people who believe in racial identity and belong to a race. But no, to be  racist or sexist  has been twisted to mean someone who has fallen foul of the rules of the new social order. 
   
Homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia. A phobia is an irrational fear of something, like heights or enclosed spaces. It's a medical condition but it's used similarly to -ism above in the meaning of hate and persecution.  
  
Semitism, Anti-semitism. Semites are people who speak a wide group of languages from the middle east and as far west as Malta. Yet anti-semitism is changed to mean only the Jewish people. 
 
I expect there's more but this is a start.

My own gripe is with the word "Gay" being hijacked from an innocent word for happiness.

 

In about 1972 it suddenly underwent a metamorphosis.

 

I remember at school how the "round" called "Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree" acquired a transformation on the line "Kookaburra Gay Your Life Must Be" to include mass giggling and a camp wave of the wrist in the air.

 

As a fan of the radio show "Just a Minute",the classic years,which is recorded for posterity,in one show "Gay " is said without any sniggering then some episodes later the studio audience laugh nervously as the host,Nicholas Parsons makes a joke when Kenneth Williams says they should keep the tone light and gay!

 

Personally I put a lot of the blame on Larry "What a Gay Day" Grayson and the Two Ronnies" Gay Lib" news items!

I also find that there are so many new words to define things now. Things that already had words to define them. Cis, woke, weird gender names etc. The sort of words used to define individuals and groups.  Now clearly it’s part of the agenda but I also believe if individuals never read ,anything except what’s on a meme etc, then their vocabulary and thought process are stunted. Effectively creating a situation wherein if you don’t know the word to describe something you invent new unnecessary words to take the place of the old unknown words. All new words coming  especially from the far left but not solely the left are a result of wilful  ignorance, indoctrination, Mass delusion and mob rule.  We have nearly all been indoctrinated to some degree or other by our schooling. The secret in my opinion is to seek information not on the internet but through libraries and social interaction with individuals capable of debating and discussing. Clearly the internet is a great tool for people who question their reality. Unfortunately most are happy to be told what to think and do.

Clincher for me was when the grandkids came in from school singing 'Baa baaa Rainbow sheep, have you any wool!!!'

 

I mean, apart from the obvious connotations, where the fuck have you actually seen a RAINBOW sheep? Maybe they exist in Cloud Cuckoo Land, which is where most teachers seem to reside these days.

I ised to spend countless hours in libraries choosing, reading, and pre-ordering books that I felt I should read. I've never regretted those hours. My granddaughter called me 'Mr Google' a few weeks ago because I seemed to be able to answer all of her questions without looking them up on the net!

 

FFS! I'm just an ordinary guy with no special powers, but lucky enough to have been born in a period when teachers actually taught you something useful.

I hate to think about it but maybe it's the children (and therefore adults when they grow up) who are expected to be the sheep by learning all this twisted stuff. Maybe it's trying to associate rainbow ideology with black critical theory. Subliminally of course.

If we think of the 'common law' as a reflection of our inbuilt conscience and if we see jury trials as the way in which the people can then ensure that the will of the people can prevail over the laws created by the state then we can see why the people who control the state are so keen to socially engineer society

 

By trying to push all of this LGBTQ stuff they are essentially trying to change the collective moral boundaries of society

 

So if they can't control who is on the jury they can try to control the outcome by changing the consciousness of the people in society in general so that the make up of any jury will also change

 

Their ultimate goal would be to legalise and normalise pedophilia and a host of other repugnant things but in order to do that they are using a process of incremental change or what david would call 'the totalitarian tiptoe'

Have you noticed that recently the word paedophilia is being dropped and replaced with more euphemistic alternatives such as grooming? The shifts in language are part of the process of social engineering through mental indoctrination.

Some years ago I was taken by a comment of Don Cupitt's (the liberal Christian theologian) than Christianity hasn't really declined, but it has migrated out of the churches into secular society. And this may be true of other monotheistic religions too. Theological themes like God loves everyone,  love thy neighbours as thyself, the Good Samaritan etc have become morphed into the internationalist, pro-immigration, anti-community philosophy which is fed to and taken up by people lacking a good grounding in traditional (or rather sustainable) spirituality and moral philosophy. Yet many of us still retain a feeling of need for a foundation to our lives which religion used to provide and become seekers in the postmodern smorgasbord world, easy prey for the cult of globalism - where the superstate replaces God.

Maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to invent some new terms of our own to bypass the algos on yt etc,a kind of polari for the awake and aware.

 

My own suggestions proffered here are codewords for likeminded souls who have undergone the process from NPC to Neo

 

"DALE" -  Dawning Awareness Leading to Epiphany (The Process of Waking Up to the realisation that the world ain't what you thought!)

 

And to criticise the msm narrative agenda subtly

 

"SCOG" - Suicide Courtesy of Government (Via msm scarifying and needleware promotion)
