A Unified, Coordinated Attack Machine? by The Elephant's Child

Have you noticed that the Left keeps changing the meaning of words?

“A globalist is a person that wants the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country so much. And you know what? We can’t have that. You know, they have a word. It sort of became old-fashioned. It’s called a nationalist. And I say, really, we’re not supposed to use that word. You know what I am? I’m a nationalist, OK? I’m a nationalist. Nationalist. Use that word.”

…………………………………………….President Donald Trump
……………………………………………………October 22, 2018.

I had no trouble understanding his meaning, Of course I believe in the United States of America and put the country’s well being ahead of any goofy ideas of world government. I have always thought of myself as a nationalist. I love this country and celebrate the freedom that our constitution and our history promise. But apparently the meaning of the word “nationalism” has changed in the minds of the Left.

Chris Cillizza at CNN (of course it is CNN) wrote: “The roots of Adolph Hitler’s rise were built around his emphasis on extreme nationalism – the idea that the only way Germany could be great again was to seize onto the superiority of the German people and drive out those across Europe who refused to acknowledge that superiority.” Actually, Hitler had some other things n his mind than superiority, but the language has changed Nationalism = Nazism.

Clearly, we insulted the leftist media by suggesting that the unhinged mob of partisans screaming and pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court itself were an “unhinged mob.” The media made it clear that they sympathized with Christine Blasey Ford and any and all other accusers of Judge Kavanaugh, but using “mob” terminology for an actual mob was going too far.

The New York Times indulges itself with an assassination fantasy while blaming President Trump for the bombs mailed to members of the Left. They are quick to blame the president’s rhetoric for any increase in violence in our society.

What rhetoric? Why the President called the media “fake news”, and he said that they were “the enemy of the people.” That’s the thing that eats at the media. But continually misreporting the news isn’t exactly helpful. If the media can deliver only politicized news, they are failing in their most basic function which is to help their listeners or readers to understand what is going on in the world. Of course it is much harder to report in an disinterested voice, scrupulously avoiding one’s own partisan beliefs. But journalists seem to have no oath of office, no guardrails, they work only at the peril of instantly losing their job if they are politically incorrect.
