Glossary: Key memes, dog-whistles, canards, euphemisms, fake outrages, and obsessions in the Wall Street Journal and other GOP language factories, Nov. 5-12, 2015

Dems’ game: whenever the media criticizes Tea Party candidates, especially Ben Carson.  Any criticism is in reality vilification or “witch hunting.” (See below). It’s all game theory to the Tea Party: a zero-sum Darwinian struggle for rhetorical ascendancy.

destroy: what the Left-wing media is trying to do whenever they ask Ben Carson a question. This “out to destroy” meme is part of the larger Tea Party victimization narrative.

Hegelian-Marxist synthesis: Obama’s middle-of-the-roadism and moral relativism. The devil in disguise.

hysteria: any Dem race talk. It’s all “pathological narcissism and delusional victimology.”

the marketplace of free ideas: people’s right to free expression also give them a right to anonymity. Tea Partiers stand firmly behind the First Amendment except in the case of making campaign contributions. public. In other words, they lack the firmness of their convictions, and are don’t believe in “free markets” insofar as they are willing to disclose their investments in that market.

parental authority: what the Dems are trying to undermine and replace with government authority. The lack of parental authority is also creating the racial divide and a whole generation of “non-functional” Americans.

rap artist: an oxymoron, in the same way as “Great Society.”

small government: cutting all social spending. Does not apply to military spending.

special scrutiny: any mainstream media questioning of Tea Party candidates. Then they have the audacity to claim that Obama never received such scrutiny, forgetting about the endless firestorms over his birthplace, Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, etc.

Uncle Sam: Uncle Sugar, especially to the non-functional citizens who voted for Obama.

welfare state: worse for blacks than slavery or Jim Crow
