Fascism and Liberalism Have Switched Meanings

Fascism used to mean absolute government. “All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state,” barked its Founding Father Benito Mussolini. Fools and maniacs advocate absolute government to this day. Because their ideology is based on postmodernism, they hope to achieve it by manipulating language. This is why they call themselves “liberals.” That term previously referred to advocates of individual liberty like Thomas Jefferson, who held views diametrically opposed to those of modern liberals. In the same spirit, authoritarians have redefined “fascism” to mean what “liberalism” used to mean.

A moonbat who demonstrates that she really means it by dropping the F-bomb every few words provides a Newspeak Dictionary update on the definition of “fascism”:

Today’s lecture:

“In terms of economic theory, fascism is the genuine belief that individuals are responsible for their own well-being and welfare.”

Nazis didn’t get the memo:

Adolf Eichmann viewed National Socialism and communism as “quasi-siblings,” explaining in his memoirs that he “inclined towards the left and emphasized socialist aspects every bit as much as nationalist ones.” As late as 1944, Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbels publicly celebrated “our socialism,” reminding his war-weary subjects that Germany “alone [has] the best social welfare measures.” Contrast this, he advised, with the Jews, who were the very “incarnation of capitalism.”

But now we know that personal responsibility is bad due to alleged links to white supremacism and Christianity. It is a tool of “colonization.” That’s why the freedom to own property — arguably the foundation of all individual liberty — is fascism, as surely as the desire to impose omnipotent, omnipresent government is liberalism.

AP Strikes the Word “The” From Newspeak Dictionary

According to the postmodernist concepts that comprise the foundation of modern liberalism, power is achieved through control of language. That’s why they tell us what words we can use. They started with nouns, proclaiming anodyne terms like “Negro” and “squaw” to be racist. They attacked adjectives, deforming Latino and Latina into Latinx. They demanded that we divorce pronouns from biological reality. Now they have begun to go after articles.

AP Stylebook struck the word “the” from the Newspeak Dictionary with a tweet reading,

“We recommend avoiding general and often dehumanizing ‘the’ labels such as the poor, the mentally ill, the French, the disabled, the college-educated. Instead, use wording such as people with mental illnesses. And use these descriptions only when clearly relevant.”

You would think that by declaring the word “the” to be offensive, liberals had reached the last extreme of absurdity. But their capacity for self-parody is without limit.

Now AP is apologizing to the French for referring to “the French” in their denunciation of the word “the”:

The AP official account tweeted Friday morning, “The use of ‘the French’ in this tweet by @AP was inappropriate and has caused unintended offense. An updated tweet is upcoming.”

Imagine trusting these moonbats to tell you what is going on in the world.

“Mummy” Deleted From Newspeak Dictionary

As the Newspeak Dictionary shrinks away to nothing, it becomes ever more difficult for woke social engineers to find words to be offended by on someone else’s behalf. Desperation has reduced them to erasing the word “mummy”:

They say the term is dehumanising to those who died and – of course – an unwelcome throwback to Britain’s colonial past.

The phrase now deemed politically acceptable is ‘mummified person’ or ‘mummified remains’.

The British Museum says it uses the latter phrase to emphasise to visitors that they are looking at people who once lived, while the Great North Museum: Hancock in Newcastle says that it has adopted the new terms for its mummified woman Irtyru, who dates from around 600BC, to acknowledge the history of colonial exploitation and to give her the respect she deserves.

No doubt Irtyru feels much better, now that British museums are making amends for colonial exploitation by not calling her a mummy.

The word “mummy” has been used in English since at least 1615. It takes longer to build a civilization than to destroy one. The same goes for language.

Because the word is derived from the Arabic “mummiya,” use of it is considered cultural appropriation. Ironically, Egyptian culture was largely eradicated by Arabs, which is why Egyptians speak Arabic. But the British are the guilty ones, for discovering tombs that helped us appreciate the greatness of ancient Egypt.

Scientific American Has Newspeak Dictionary Updates

Scientific American is where leftist propaganda imitates parody. Just as the World Economic Forum proclaims that we will be happy owning nothing, Scientific American assures us we like climate radicalism. With its cartoonish racialization of the Damar Hamlin injury, it jumped the shark and can no longer be considered even a kiddy version of a scientific publication. But that doesn’t mean it serves no purpose. It provides climate-related updates to the Newspeak Dictionary so as to help us avoid committing wrongspeak.

Transforming the way we talk about climate change can engage people and build the political will needed to implement policies strong enough to confront the crisis with the urgency required.

Modern leftism is founded upon postmodernism, a central tenet of which is that power is achieved through control of language. To implement this strategy, Scientific American provides a handy graphic listing politically correct terminology regarding the global warming hoax:

A key point to remember is that just as “global warming” became “climate change” to cover for when temperatures go down instead of up, “climate change” is now to give way to “climate disruption,” because too many people understand that the climate has always changed and always will, no matter how much tyranny progressives use it as a pretext to inflict.

Also, never say “natural disasters.” People who cling to wealth and freedom are to blame for all bad weather, so say “human-made disasters” instead. Because this racistly implies that sacred BIPOCs help cause bad weather, it will probably be updated to “Caucasian-made disasters.”

Further orders regarding politically expedient climate vocabulary:

Terms such as “regulate,” “restrict,” “cut,” “control” and “tax” are unpopular, especially among conservatives. Perhaps people would be more likely to support solutions described with words such as “innovation,” “entrepreneurship,” “ingenuity,” “market-based” and “competing in the global clean energy race.” The fact that the first significant U.S. climate policy is called the Inflation Reduction Act is another example of how word choice matters. The name itself helped to gain the crucial support of Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, the swing vote. The name may also have made the legislation more appealing to the many Americans who worry about climate change but rank it below inflation and the economy on their list of priorities.

The Orwellian title convinced few that the blowout climate kookery spending bill would reduce inflation instead of making it worse. Scientific American thinks its readers are as dumb as Joe Manchin pretends to be.

“Field” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

Fields are where some slaves worked in the early nineteenth century. Consequently, the word “field” has been struck from the Newspeak Dictionary by the University of Southern California:

USC’s Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work said the change was critical to support anti-racist social work and inclusivity.

If you want to see how moonbatty moonbattery can get, a school of social work in California would be good place to start.

The department specifically decided to remove the word “field” from its curriculum and replace it with “practicum,” according to the letter, which was dated Jan. 9 and shared to Twitter.

Before long, moonbats will speak a separate dialect, consisting entirely of stilted terms like “practicum.” As it becomes increasingly incomprehensible to normal Americans, it will qualify as a foreign language.

The letter continued: “Language can be powerful, and phrases such as ‘going into the field’ or ‘field work’ maybe have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers that are not benign.”

Belief in the power of language is at the core of the moonbat religion. It is grounded in postmodernism, which explicitly deprecates reality in favor of a contrived pseudo-reality created by language in order to achieve power. This is the reason the Newspeak Dictionary gets shorter each day.

USC says they are joining other universities across the nation in making changes to their institution to “honor and acknowledge inclusion and reject white supremacy, anti-immigrant and anti-blackness ideologies.”

Social work isn’t about social work any more than universities are about learning. Everything controlled by leftists is about ideology.

Eric Utter wonders how far the thought police will take the new ban on the word “field”:

If “field” is verboten, we will have to rename baseball positions and parks. No more “center field” or “Wrigley Field,” etc. Football’s “field goal” will have to give way to a different term. Entire cities must be renamed. So much for “Bakersfield” and “Springfield,” for example. And, sorry Mrs. Fields, but your cookie outlets will have to be rebranded. Hope the cost of doing so isn’t prohibitive, but, racism, you know. The Beatle’s iconic “Strawberry Fields Forever?” Ash heap of history. Maybe “Strawberry Practicum Forever.”

Maybe old uses of the word “field” will be grandfathered in, like the forbidden word in United Negro College Fund.

“Female” Declared Offensive as Concept Is Eradicated

The LGBT War on Womanhood has resulted in another update to the Newspeak Dictionary. The same prestigious Cambridge Dictionary that recently redefined the word “woman” into meaninglessness now proclaims that most people find the noun “female” offensive outside scientific writing:

Speaking of science, it may be harnessed to do the bidding of our depraved moonbat overlords. Obliterating the gender binary in accordance with liberal ideology requires more than demasculinizing men and disavowing women. This could suggest the future they have in mind for the human race:

Scientists in Israel have for the first time created male and female stem cells from the same person.

This has been done because of how profoundly men and women differ.

For much of medical history, the male body was the default for investigating illness, biology and drug responses. …

But a growing body of research in recent decades is finding that the differences are far more extensive than we might expect.

That’s why scientists were motivated to fabricate “male and female cells that are genetically identical but for the sex chromosomes.”

The intent is constructive, but the implications could be grotesque, given cultural trends.

Now all we have to do is get rid of the sex chromosomes. Artificial wombs are already on the way.

In utopia, the divorce between sex and procreation will be complete, along with the eradication of male and female.

“American” Struck from the Newspeak Dictionary

Despite the damage they have inflicted on American culture, America still stands for everything leftists hate, being a predominantly Christian constitutional republic, moral, healthy, and free. Otherwise, the educrats at Stanford would not have struck the word “American” from the Newspeak Dictionary:

Stanford University released a guide this week on “harmful” language that it wants to remove from its online properties — noting that the term “American” is a no-go.

The language guide, which was published Monday, aims to “eliminate many forms of harmful language, including racist, violent, and biased … language in Stanford websites and code.”

Launched in May, the project, known as the Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative (EHLI), lists the prohibited terms under 10 categories including racism, homophobia and ableism.

The term “American” is to be replaced with “US citizen.”

“[‘American’] often refers to people from the United States only, thereby insinuating that the US is the most important country in the Americas,” the packet reasons, noting that the region actually includes 42 countries between North and South America.

At the risk of appearing impertinent, someone needs to point out to our alleged intellectual betters that North and South America are continents. Only one country is called America — namely, America. But moonbats would prefer to pretend there is no such nation — only an arbitrary political entity called the “US” that does not represent a specific people.

The liberal intention is to extirpate Americans via cultural genocide. They could not make it more obvious if they tried.

Newspeak Dictionary Redefines “Woman”

Updates to the Newspeak Dictionary do not always take the form of direct deletion of words from our vocabulary. Sometimes words that it is not expedient to erase entirely have the definition changed, so as to facilitate goodthink. Matt Walsh has caused some discomfort among liberals, who have been unable to define “woman” in light of LGBT dogma. But they can define it now:

They didn’t go with “someone who menstruates” or “someone who owns a vulva” because those definitions would have been too close to accurate. The new definition does not erase the word “woman,” but it does erase the concept.

Sorry ladies; you no longer exist. Don’t feel too bad. Men have been erased too:

Biology and the English language have both been offered up as sacrifices to liberals’ Cult of LGBT.

“Pro-Choice” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

“Pro-choice” is a hell of a euphemism to describe being in favor of people choosing to kill their own offspring. But another term is considered more effective at promoting the media’s agenda. Consquently,

The Associated Press issued new guidelines for the topic of abortion Monday. The writing stylebook says to now “use the modifiers anti-abortion or abortion-rights; don’t use pro-life, pro-choice or pro-abortion unless they are in quotes or proper names. Avoid abortionist, which connotes a person who performs clandestine abortions.”

News outlets across the spectrum use the AP stylebook. But the Daily Signal will ignore this Newspeak Dictionary update. Here’s why:

Replacing the term “pro-choice” and “pro-abortion” with “abortion-rights” inaccurately implies that women have a right to end the life of the child growing in their womb. The Declaration of Independence speaks of a right to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,” but neither the Declaration nor the Constitution provides a right to end a pregnancy through elective abortion.

This was confirmed by the Dobbs decision, infuriating pro-abortion progressives, who assert that the Constitution says whatever they want it to say.

The purpose of the liberal media establishment is to fabricate and reinforce a narrative that empowers the Democratic Party. Conditioning people to see abortion as a right rather than a crime supports this narrative. It does not reflect reality.

Word “Brownie” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

As we work toward utopia, the Newspeak Dictionary grows ever thinner, with the eventual objective of reducing human language to inarticulate grunts so that no one can say anything offensive. Canada leads the way by abolishing the term “Brownie.”

Background on Canadian Brownies:

Girl Guides of Canada is a founding member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and was founded in 1910. The Brownie is a branch of Girl Guides that teaches outdoor safety and other life skills to girls ages 7-8.

Jill Zelmanovits, CEO of Girl Guides of Canada, explains why Brownies must no longer be called “Brownies”:

“Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion at Girl Guides calls on us to listen to the lived experiences of racialized girls and take action to safeguard these commitments.”

Zelmanovits says that calling Brownies “Brownies” has “caused them personal harm.”

You almost have to admire the creativity of moonbats who find evidence in support of the Cultural Marxist narrative no matter how obvious it is that no such evidence exists.

As Robert Conquest observed, any organization that is not explicitly right-wing soon becomes left-wing. The Girl Guides are no exception. This is not the first time they have made fools of themselves with their obsequious virtue signaling:

Girl Guides has previously taken other steps leaders felt allowed for an inclusive environment, including accepting transgender girls into the organization.

“Transgender girls” by definition are not girls. How can they call themselves “Girl Guides” if they do not even know what a girl is?

No doubt calling a flat bar of chocolate cake a “brownie” is also racist, especially since brownies have been associated with drug use.

However, calling little boys “Brownies” might be excused, so long as the intent is to demasculinize them in accordance with the liberal agenda.

Word “Globalist” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

According to postmodern philosophy, objective reality is either nonexistent or irrelevant; all that matters is the artificial world we create with words. Consequently, leftists believe that ultimate power can be achieved through control of language. This is why updates to the Newspeak Dictionary come fast and furious. It is why you can tell that you have found a soft spot in leftist defenses when they react to certain words as if you had poked a raw nerve. Use the word “depravity” in a discussion with liberals about the LGBT agenda and you may see fireworks. The word “globalist” so betrays their agenda that they have resorted to playing the anti-Semitism card:

Following what many, such as Brexit leader Nigel [Farage], have described as a “globalist coup” to install former Goldman Sachs banker and World Economic Forum (WEF) acolyte Rishi Sunak as prime minister, left-wing figures have attempted to make the very term “globalist” an off-limits slur, claiming that it is antisemitic.

I didn’t realize Sunak is Jewish. He threw me off by taking his parliamentary oath of office on the Bhagavad Gita.

Acknowledgment that power-hungry supranational cabals like the World Economic Forum are globalist is allegedly “a common antisemitic trope based on conspiracy theories about international Jewish power,” according to professional offended Jewish person Marie van der Zyl.

The linguistic dispute came to a head on Sunday, when a caller to the LBC radio station echoed Mr Farage’s sentiments in describing Sunak as a “globalist” who “doesn’t seem to love England”.

Delete the word “globalist” from your copy of the Newspeak Dictionary at once, and remember that if you utter it, you are literally a Nazi.

What Students Are Taught “Fascism” Means

We know what fascism means according to the dictionary. Basically, it is a form of militant socialism similar to liberalism, but without the self-loathing. But that’s not how kids are being taught to define it:

A teacher from Madison High School in San Diego claimed fascists are synonymous with the “modern-day Republican Party” and “white, Christian, heterosexuals,” according to a student at the school. Speaking on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retaliation, the high school student detailed the teacher’s unhinged definition of a “fascist.”

Impressionable kids walked into class September 1 to see written on the board,

As it is currently constituted, the Republican party is now a fascist organization that no longer fits the category of a conventional Democratic party.

Sounds like the Dark Brandon speech really struck home among educators.

But the teacher didn’t stop there. He continued with his radical left-wing indoctrination by listing whites, Christians, and heterosexuals as groups that are “fascist.”

If you are white, you are fascist. If you are a Christian, you are fascist. If you are not a sexual deviant, you are fascist. To sum up, if moonbats hate you because of where you get pigeonholed by their identity-based ideology, you are fascist.

This is what students learn in English class.

The student took pictures to document the brainwashing he was forced to undergo. You can see why teachers’ unions are so adamantly opposed to cameras in the classroom that would allow parents to monitor from home.

A passage from Through the Looking Glass comes to mind:

“When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

’The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

’The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.”

The creed that has appropriated the title “liberalism” is based on postmodernism. Language is seen as tool used to control not only people but reality itself, or what passes for reality within the context of relativist postmodern hogwash. This is why revisions to the Newspeak Dictionary are made so relentlessly.

“Fascism” no longer means what it has always meant; it means whatever our masters among the liberal ruling class find it advantageous to pretend it means.

Father’s Milk Added to Newspeak Dictionary

Language becomes increasingly surreal as progressives solidify control. To advance the LGBT agenda, they now want us to call breastmilk “father’s milk”:

New “gender inclusive” language guides put out by The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM) are being implemented in some US hospitals. A screenshot of a language guide table was shared to Twitter on Tuesday titled “Suggested Terms in Breastfeeding and Human Lactation.” On the left-hand side, a column labeled “traditional terms” includes “breast milk,” while a middle column of “Gender-inclusive terms” suggests “father’s milk” as a possible alternative.

According to the liberal religion, calling mother’s milk “father’s milk” is an act of political righteousness, because it disrupts the cisnormative gender binary.

Liberalism does not merely deviate from reality. It is the diametric opposite of reality. It is the rejection of reality.
