All of the following words and phrases are commonly used by
liberals Leftists and their publications and media to describe various societal conditions. Herewith, find the real meaning behind the liberal Leftist buzzwords:
Black Lives Matter:
Black Lives Matter is a group of Marxists who work, not for equality and respect for black people, but to destroy the capitalist United States and instigate a Marxist, Communist state, making them the dictators over all. For this group, these Black Lives don’t matter:
An activist is anyone who works for social justice or to mitigate climate change or racial inequality. Activists these days are no longer just SJWs, but rioters, destroyers of private and public property, and thugs who target police, business-owners, and homeowners who choose to protect their livelihoods and property. Activists work in mobs, take over downtown streets, and walk onto busy freeways during rush hour.
Used to describe the number of black people who are in prison. Leftists use this term to disguise the fact that the reason there are so many black people in prison is that they commit so many more crimes than other groups. The term connotes black people rounded up by (white) police and thrown in prison for no reason.
Marginalized, as in “Marginalized Groups”:
A marginalized group is any group of people that can be defined as “oppressed” at any time in the past, recent or ancient. Seeing someone as a member of a marginalized group ignores anything that person has done or been, and immediately marks them as unequal to today’s elites. Most activities of Social Justice Warriors are said to be to the benefit of marginalized groups. However, whatever is actually done on their behalf never seems to get them out of the “marginalized” category. And, as the Jews were oppressed when they were slaves in Egypt, does that make them a “marginalized group”? Probably not, since so many white leftists are Jews, they’d have to help themselves today, which would be cognitive dissonance.
Means a thing or service that you want and either don’t have the money to buy, or choose not to save up for. Affordable, to a Leftist, means someone else pays for what you want. Someone else pays for your health care, your cell phone, your mortgage, your education, and your medications.
Means that someone makes more money than you do, and that is because they are taking money from you instead of really earning it. Every dollar the other person earns that is more than you or someone else earns, was pulled from your account. The cure for income inequality is not to help the low-earners make more by improving their education or skills, but taxing higher-earners to redistribute to lower-earners. [that sounds like a lose-lose proposition]
Environmental Impact Study/Statement:
This is where the radical environmentalists tie up all new infrastructure projects (especially roads and oil pipelines) in enough red tape to double or triple the costs, and sometimes stop them altogether. This is why there have been no new oil refineries built since the 1970’s, and the ones that exist are constantly down for maintenance, increasing the price of gasoline accordingly. This is why farmers cannot get enough water for their crops, but tiny fish are “saved” from extinction. The fish are more important than the farmers.
This is the concept that says that the color of the skin of the people in any school classroom or business office is more important than their skills or the content of their character. Diversity is held up as the highest value when admitting students to college (but does NOT include variety of viewpoint). Increasing diversity is why Barack Obama made it all the way through Punahou School, college, and Harvard Law School without having to demonstrate any real knowledge or publish any academic papers, and why he was elected to the highest office in our land twice with absolutely NO relevant experience. And, also, why he was a near-total failure. Diversity also includes every newly-recognized “gender” category, except Male and Female.
See “diversity” above. This concept originated in the 1960s, and what it really is, is discrimination on the basis of race. Affirmative action admits people of any race not white or Asian to college, ahead of those whose grades and activities are higher. Lower-achieving black and Indian students are sent to the head of the admissions line at most colleges, as a way of paying them back for all the black students supposedly denied a college education in the past, solely because of their race. Affirmative Action also sends black or Indian job applicants to the head of the line, even if their experience does not qualify them for the job in question. Government entities have engaged in the most “affirmative action”. Due to this concept, black students and job applicants who qualify on the basis of their superior grades or experience, often carry an aura of “token” through life-they have to explain to others that they were NOT the “affirmative action” hire, and some of them go through life wondering if they are getting ahead due to their own characteristics, or just because of their race. What started out as a way to help them, becomes hurtful to them. [typical of leftist concepts]
This is where interest groups like Feminists and
Liberal Leftist Activists constantly bombard Americans with subjects like Breast Cancer, Battered Women, Gay Rights, Discrimination in the workplace, Women in Combat, Sexual Abuse by Catholic Priests, etc., etc. As if we are not totally aware of all these issues and simply wish to be left alone.
This simply means MORE EXPENSIVE, due to old-fashioned, labor-intensive methods of cultivation, which leads to higher rates of spoilage, and increased incidences of food poisoning from harmful bacteria. It has never been proven that organic food is any healthier than food cultivated in the normal manner.
Green (applied to any material):
This also means MORE EXPENSIVE, due to antiquated methods of production, and use of more-expensive types of labor and energy (plows pulled by horses, solar panels that cost twice what your oil or gas furnace costs, and only work when the sun shines; roof gardens that leak into the rooms below); utensils made of plant material instead of plastic; light bulbs containing mercury and other toxic chemicals.
Social Justice (the real biggie for
This, for Liberals, means Payback, and Take Back. Payback to all the successful people in the nation who, to them, became successful “on the backs” of the “99%”. In their minds, the world is a zero-sum game, with gains by some causing losses by others. Social Justice for them means taking away supposed ill-gotten gains from those who they deem to be illegitimately wealthy (Wall Street bigwigs, successful entrepreneurs like the Koch brothers, and media moguls such as Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch). It means giving those ill-gotten gains to their preferred “victim” groups, such as those on welfare, minorities,and illegal immigrants. It means heavily taxing high-earners to bestow benefits on the “low-income”. It means punishing success and rewarding failure.
Means “the rich” moving in and making improvements to your rundown neighborhood, and kicking you out of your house. It means remodeling old houses or apartments and increasing their value, thus by comparison decreasing the value of your property. You, of course, have no recourse but to leave, since you are kept down by others and have no way of improving your own life and earning power.
