Liberal Language

I’ve recently published a short dictionary on modern liberal terms entitled: The Subversives’ Dictionary: An irreverent guide to liberal jargon for non-believers, which is available as an eBook on Amazon Here’s some of the entries under A:

Abortion and Guns – so-called “wedge issues” which Americans like to argue about so they don’t have to think about more important issues like immigration, state’s rights and runaway public debt.

Abstainer – according to the great Edwardian dictionary writer Ambrose Bierce, an abstainer is a weak person who yields to the temptation of denying himself a pleasure. A strong man takes Aristotle’s time-tested advice and enjoys his pleasure in moderation.

Agreeableness – the reason women can never really be the intellectual equal of men. When your sex is programmed for empathy rather than truth-seeking, you’re more likely to try to stop free inquiry than contribute to it.

Alcohol – a vital social lubricant used to transform quiet introverts into loud and opinionated extroverts. It’s doubtful if Western man could successfully reproduce without this confidence-boosting mating tool.

American Conservatives – exiled religious radicals and idealistic libertarians who rebelled against the British monarchy and now claim to be upholders of tradition and conservatism.

Ancestors – deceased persons who are respected in the East and dissed in the West. While sanctimonious Westerners apologise for the supposed sins of their ancestors, Easterners, such as the Japanese, refuse to kowtow to political correctness as they think it’s disrespectful to criticize the actions of their forbears.

Apologies – something mild-mannered mavericks mistakenly resort to when being bullied by their conformist adversaries. Unfortunately, the easily offended are rarely satisfied and craven apologies only result in yet more strident demands for self-abasement.

Aristotle – extremely smart guy that just about everyone today ignores (probably because they hate the idea that a dose of moderation and realism might actually do society some good). Sadly, his more politically suspect successor Plato gets more attention, no doubt because arrogant progressives like his idea of rule by “philosopher kings.” Replace philosopher rings with “democratically elected representatives” and you can blame Plato for inventing modern politics.

Aryan – a blonde, blue-eyed white person who works tirelessly for non-profit organizations and is intent on helping whales, homeless drug addicts and non-white, third world refugees. Why Adolf Hitler was so keen on glorifying Aryans remains a mystery.
