the Left has played for years and I have watched it being played.
It is the redefinition game. You simply redefine something.
Take children for example. When your statistics involving children do not fit your agenda you simply redefing childhood.
Years ago you were considered a child until your early teens. Then you became a teenager. So some groups decided that children became all people under the age of 18. WHen that woasn't good enough they raised the definition of childhood to 21. It covered a larger group and therefore made the number of people falling into the category a lot larger.
For example, injuries to children involving guns or swimming pools. Swimming pools kill more kids than guns but I digress.
The one that brought this topic to mind is the racist game. Everyone seems to be afraid of being called a racist these days.
I'm not. By the new definition I am certainly a racist. Dr. King is still one of my heroes and I believe that you judge a man by the content of his character and not the color of his skin. Period. End of sentence.
But by new redefinition I am a racist simply because I do not cotton to the the BLM movement. I consider it a black hate organization which is what it is. Especially the faction that is running around shooting our police officers.
Incidentally where is the SPLC now that we need them? A quick check of their website says emphatically that BLM is not a hate group.
Of course the people in it will call me a racist for my attitude toward them but so what? If it makes me a racist by new definition than whay I am I am. I am now a racist...or at least by newspeak definition.
Perhaps I should call myself a neo racist because neo means new and I have been newly christened as one.
I am going to continue to be a racist and I imagine that once I get used to the name I will embrace it.
I just ordered a Gadsden flag because the president has decreed it racist. I will park it folded on a shelf next to my Confederate battle flag that I purchased after the president decreed it to be racist.
I wish the president would shut the hell up because it is starting to cost me a lot of money in flags. I suppose maybe I ought to purchase a rainbow Gadsden flag next to confuse people but that can wait until payday. (I have offered LGBTQ members self defense lessons after Orlando so it's 'authorized'.)
Anyway, I suppose I'm going to go an record as a neo racist. It is what I am.
After all, I believe there is one race and that's the human race. I also judge a man by the content of his character and not the color of his skin.
If that makes me a neo racist, then what it is, it is. I guess that's what I am now.
Bet you Dr. King would be there right alongside me.
