New Meanings to Common Words


The words unsafe, violence, privilege, hate speech and others are being redefined for the 21st century.

Sam White at Up All Night:

This is because the activist left has a habit of twisting words to serve its own purpose. There’s a basic disrespect for language, and an unwillingness to be precise. Buzzwords abound, and if you don’t know what they mean, then your ignorance may itself be taken down and used in evidence against you.

Add attack to the list. The long, drawn-out drama of Brett Kimberlin is an example of this. Kimberlin has repeatedly complained of being ‘attacked’ by John Hoge and Aaron Walker and manages to add his associates and family to the mix so he can claim that they’ve all been attacked.

Attacked in this sense means mentioned, reported about truthfully or in the case of Walker, it might mean there was a brief, nonviolent confrontation with Kimberlin recorded in several photographs taken two seconds apart, and adjudicated as “not an assault.” Kimberlin reported various symptoms after the so-called attack. Details here. Yet still the Team Kimberlin group claims to be attacked. Ask a veteran, boxer or mugging victim about being attacked.

They’ve decided that words are violence. And not embracing gender neutral pronouns might be violence. We hear about ‘structural violence’, whereby just existing in the world can render one a victim of assault and battery.

    Racists being scared isn’t a bad thing, but “racists” should not be scared. Especially not of a half buzzed dude with thin arms. Basically if you don’t think your race is superior to another (which isn’t the same thing as thinking your culture is superior to another) then not a racist.
