Building a Better Vocabulary

Luntz

Now, let’s turn our attention to some of Wingnuttia’s vocabulary. As we all know, in the 1990s Noot weaponized the stupid when he gave them flashcards on how to describe the opposition and issues, and his winged monkey Frank Luntz has carried on that fine tradition.

Anyway, the Washington Monthly has a helpful guide for translating from the weasel-speak into language we can understand on the topic of Immigration.

Now, none of this is going to help you talk to your Facebook Rage Uncle in Possum Hollar, but you will at least know what he is dithering on about. I found it useful because many of the terms are, well, foreign to me. Chain Migration? It actually means whole families being re-united. (For a while, I literally thought that they were talking about slavery, and I wondered what the hell they thought was going on!)

Here’s a clue: all of it, every last bit of it comes down to Hair Führer’s shithole countries. Unless it is white immigration, none of ’em are interested in it. If they were, then they would be interested in fixing it instead of building walls.

  1. They’re not interested in white migration either. They’re deporting a Polish doctor from Michigan, who has been in the US since he was 10 & doesn’t even speak Polish.

    • Oh it was decades before Poles were considered ‘white’ enough to mingle with ‘society’. My dad grew up in the deeply segregated Chicago, and no it wasn’t just blacks vs whites, it was Blacks vs Poles, vs Jews, vs Greeks, etc etc.

      However, I did wonder if the gestapo ICE were targeting any but latinos…looks like they are

    Typical rethug thinking. I see now that it isn’t “illegal immigration” at all but rather “Legal Immigration” that currently has their panties in such a knot.

      We regret the shock, Ten Bears. On the west coast we were not yet putting on the old lunchtime feed bag.
