    12 words that undid the Dems in 2016

    In 2016, for the first time in the broadcast era, leftists lost control of the semantic battlefield. If they recognized this fact, they recognized it too late. Thanks largely to social media, their Orwellian efforts to redefine, re-purpose or evade ordinary word usage made them look foolish and ultimately left them vulnerable to defeat. Twelve damning words:

    12. Micro-aggression. In the hothouse environment of the American campus, the claim to have suffered a micro-aggression – an inadvertent slight to one’s identity – gathered pity points for the offended snowflakes. In the real world, where people suffer macro-aggressions on a daily basis, the whole concept just seemed trivial and pathetic....

    10. Husband. “Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial,” tweeted Matthew Lasner about lawyer pal Dan Goldstein. “My husband chasing them down to harass them.” Even the LGBT-friendly media cringe inwardly when forced to say “his husband” – one more insult to the language force fed from above.

    9. Immigrant. When it fully controlled the media, the left dictated the change from illegal alien to illegal immigrant to undocumented immigrant. In 2016, the media dropped the “undocumented” and tried to make “immigrant” a synonym for “illegal immigrant.” Voters saw through the shift and resented it.

    8. Supremacist. The word “racist” having lost its sting, the left upped the ante in 2016 to “white supremacist” and accused Donald Trump of being a friend of the movement, if not a supremacist himself...

    6. Matter. The most terrifying question for Democratic candidates during the primaries was “whose lives matter?” To insist that “all lives matter” was to infuriate the base. To crumple under pressure and concede that only “black lives matter” was to alienate the saner half of America....

    3. Fake. Actually, Ms. Cardona, it was David Daleiden who made the Planned Parenthood videos in question. Although national Planned Parenthood promptly dismissed them as “faked,” those who have had stomach enough to watch Daleiden’s fifth video would surely beg to differ....

    1. Deplorables. Half of Donald Trump’s supporters, claimed Hillary on Sept. 9, belonged in a “basket of deplorables.” What made them deplorable, said Hillary, was that they were “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”

    Hillary’s ever so tolerant LGBT audience laughed and applauded. The deplorables took note, and on Nov. 8, they got their revenge. If Hillary’s progressive allies pulled any message from this catastrophic choice of words, it was to never say out loud what they routinely say to each other.

  2. #2 These words are used to divide people , a failed strategy at best 
    As they accuse Trump of being a Nazi , the second Hitler of course accusing him of the very things they do daily. They live to isolate people by groups , then decided what groups are okay and what groups need to be exterminated. Hillary relied on the Hispanic votes as one example. There was no clear line between legal immigrants and illegal because they removed that line as part of the strategy to lock up the votes of Hispanics. Because they wanted to project minorities as the superior races it is all good in their twisted minds. They never really get called out by the MSM for the politics of division , no one say's "wait" your doing exactly what Hitler did just different groups of people.
    Democrats in general worry more about words names and appearance than facts look at the convention where the goal was to look united at all costs. The world knew it was a joke , they stole the primary and split the party but it least it appeared all better by the end.
    Hillary winning the popular vote but not the EC really only means she was the First Woman to come in Second to Donald Trump in a national election! That is HerStory nothing more and much less than Donald Trump.

    IMO, "Dog Whistle" belongs on Elspeth's best-of-the-worst list. It's become an object of mockery, recognized as only meaning a-truth-I-don't-want-heard-because-I-can't-answer-it.

    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB
