President Obama’s New American Vocabulary

July 14th, 2013 - 11:07 pm

Of all the many changes that the Obama administration has enacted over the last five years, the least remarked upon are the strange changes in our vocabulary. To fathom the shifting meaning of words, here is a guide to the new Obama lexicon.

Affordable Care Act: Mostly unaffordable, uncaring, and inactive.

Assault Weapon: Paint your .22 black and add a plastic handle.

Associated Press: Leakers who dared to challenge the White House monopoly.

Baby: Punishment for a mistake.

Benghazi: We won’t have any more because one video-maker is now in prison.

Berlin Wall: Analogous to the Cold War fence that kept out German illegal aliens from entering a free East Berlin.

Biden: Buffoonery after it becomes boring.

Buffett: He alone built that.

Carney: Ron Ziegler lives!

Cashing in: A practice finally ended when Hillary Clinton and Lisa Jackson left office.

Coal: A toxic rock that the crazy Chinese believe makes heat.

Corporate Jet Owners: Sort of like Air Force One.

Corpsmen: Zombies.

Courts: Revolutionary tribunals.

“Cowards”: Everybody but “my people.”

Debt: What debt?

Debt Ceilings: Only Senate cowards vote not to raise them.

Deficits: Ex-presidents incurred them.

Diversity: Endangered by locking up mass-murdering Maj. Hasan.

Drones: Sophisticated, humane military tools in the hands of the right commander in chief.

Enemies: Ours are to be punished at home, while courted abroad.

Erdogan: A valuable and trusted anti-Semite, racist, and religious bigot.

Our President has been a total disgrace to EVERYTHING the United States of America has stood for. President Obama is inarguably the most arrogant racist our country has ever had in a leadership position. When he doesn't get his way he uses "executive decision" to by-pass congress and our constitution to make laws the majority of our citizens do not agree with or support. I have the utmost respect for the office of The President, but I have no respect for the man who holds that office. Why would The President EVER incite division of his countries citizens unless his main purpose is to destroy the country. When are the citizens of the United States going to wake up? Obama has done sooo many impeachable things, yet our congress and senate refuse to act. I am not embarrassed to be an American but I am embarrassed of my President and his actions! President Obama is the worst President our nation has ever had!

Linguistic mumbo jumbo is a centerpiece bludgeon utilized by the left to bludgeon patriots/conservatives. In fact, without their doublespeak it would be impossible to talk 'PC English'!
But it must be stressed, sans the left's infiltration/penetration of academia, none of this would be possible. Not only that, but 'J Schools' wouldn't be producing advocacy 'journalism' if not for the left's hegemony within.
So, if the onus is to be placed anywhere, let us start with Alinsky's taught 'Rules for Radicals' (Obama's/Hill's & surrogates) and go from there - http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/21/the-paradox-pitfalls-of-liberal-democracies-in-a-time-of-immoral-relativism-the-havoc-wrought-by-leftist-academia-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/

An American tragedy. Western civilization's too.

This new vocabulary dovetails nicely with the results of a multi-decade assault on education in general, making for a toxic citizenry consisting of low information fools incapable of the critical thinking necessary to laugh charlatans like Obama and his ilk out of office.
Kruschev was right. They did bury us from within.

LOVED this one: “Make No Mistake About It”:
Something neither “perfectly clear” nor “in point of fact.”

Unfortunately, we've known forever that when His Hiney-ness O. says "perfectly clear", it's a HUGE clue (much like a brilliant strobe light) that means "I'm LYING, I'm LYING - and I KNOW I'm lying!"

"Common man who cares for me": hang out with .1 percenters in Hollywood and Silicon Valley

"Vacation" -- staying at rich friends' mansions on Martha's Vineyard or taking separate tax-provided planes to Europe or Hawaii. And never to Chicago, where the house is, all while claiming Bush took more vacations -- to his own ranch, in Texas, that the media hated.

"Ending domestic surveillance" : increasing domestic surveillance ten fold

"Marriage" : a term 10,000 years old is what five robed judges say it means.

American person - Replaces the old fashion terms "American citizen" and "illeagal immigrant." Be born here or enter the country any way you can and you automatically become an American person.

Nice touch including the clip of the movie "1984" taking about "New Speak." Obozo is a tyrant just as the leader of Oceania!

You forgot "man-caused disaster" formally known as terrorism.

New words are constantly replacing old words to cause confusion. The new word can be given a slightly different meaning.

I was just giving examples of all the words we used in high school that can now be considered offensive, all the while nothing about the situation has changed one bit. For example "cripple" has become a bad word. "Mentally retarded" -- bad word. It's best to do a word search before writing anything to find out if any of the words you regularly use has become a bad word since the last time you used it.
