Glossary: Key memes, dog-whistles, canards, euphemisms, fake outrages, and obsessions in the Wall Street Journal and other GOP language factories, January 29-Feb. 4, 2016

accommodation: pandering to American Muslims, LGBT freaks from central casting, and the grievance industry, all the while practicing:

Christianphobia: the War on Christmas, making Christians bake cakes for gay couples and marry them, etc.

compromise: selling out. In a Manichean world, there is not one second’s truce between good and evil.

courageous conservatives: evangelicals.

the earned-success system: another name for the Koch Brothers’ “movement for human well-being.” (see below) Contrasted to the “something for nothing” system exploited by freeloaders, welfare cheats, grievance-mongerers, etc.

gender wage gap: a largely fictional reality, but when women do earn less than men it’s because women make other personal choices.

honest brokers: any media hostile to Hillary, as opposed to the lapdog MSM, who are, by definition, the opposite of “truth seekers.”

a movement for human well-being: the free market, unleashed by fewer regulations, lower taxes and a massive cut in entitlements.

overcriminalization: persecution and prosecution of white collar crimes. Immunity from prosecution for business executives is one of the firebreaks protecting the free market system.

socialism: stealing

the Theory of Exploitivity: used by the Grievance Industry to explain any unpleasant white-black conflict.

tying the military’s hands behind their back: overly-restrictive rules of engagement hamper our ability to defeat ISIS. Aka, “getting the lawyers off the back of our military.” This is all of course shorthand for torture, mass bombing of civilians, and other war crimes.  Similar to the argument that we “would have won” in Iraq, Vietnam, etc., if the military had been allowed to fight the wars their way.
