It has always irked me how liberals control the language of our national “debates.” They are able to do so primarily because they control the bulk of the MSM. A secondary reason, however, is the fact that we conservatives mindlessly end up parroting their ridiculous euphemisms and adopting their vocabulary.
Here are some examples, along with what I think we conservatives should be using in their place. We need to refer to these concepts in a simple, truthful way. Doing so will reveal how the left’s words belie their true meanings.
I know I’m just scratching the surface. Give us your list of the most notorious terms the left uses and what you believe are their correct replacements.
