Glossary: Key memes, counterfactuals, dog whistles, canards, euphemisms, innuendoes, insinuations, fake outrages and obsessions in The Wall Street Journal and other GOP language factories and fever swamps, October 10-13, 2016

as someone who has a wife and a mother and is the father of three daughters:

Chivalry and patriarchy at work rhetorically. Men as protectors; women as property, only defined by their place in a man’s family.

beyond suspicious: all of Hillary’s behavior in the Benghazi and e-mail cover-ups. She is guilty as hell and all-but-convicted. As soon as Trump takes over the investigations, she will be imprisoned.

Rhetorically this is a ghostly wedge concept, suggesting absolute culpability without any proof, indictment, trial, convictions, etc. It is not the rule of law, but the rule of innuendo and surmise. It makes any defense of Hillary impossible, since she is clearly guilty. It is thus a form of circular logic.

citizen of the world: a citizen of nowhere. In a Hillary worldwide globalist dictatorship, US citizenship will be outlawed and only outlaws will call themselves American citizens.

the Constitution:  a self-authenticating document, to be adhered to, not “interpreted”.

More circular logic: since the Constitution is what it is and says what it means, and deviation from its original intent violates its integrity. Since there is no way to prove this assertion wrong, it is unverifiable and itself self-authenticating just by virtue of its own being.

healthy heterosexual: any male who boasts of sexual assault against women.

implicit bias: pc drivel. If Hillary is elected,  all white people will have to register for re-education classes and Stalinist self-criticism groups because they are inherently racist and don’t even know it!

media hysteria: any sustained examination of Trump; his taxes, his remarks about and treatment of women, his business practices, etc. The lamestream, government-run media only has two gears: full-on attack mode via manufactured stories that damage Trump, and full-on cover-up mode of stories that could damage Clinton.

moderator bias: asking Trump follow-up questions.

nation state: obsolete in the globalist dystopia that Hillary wants to bring about. Sjhe would end US sovereignty and  independence.

Trumpism heralds the return of Fortress America, the nation state as a bulwark against the tyranny of globalization, with all the swagger of protectionist authoritarianism.

neutral standards:  journalistic objectivity and restraint that results in analysis that is harmful to Hillary–as opposed to the government-run lamestream media’s so-called “fact checking,”which is just opinion-mongering and results in daily denunciations of Donald Trump. The liberal media has become a malignancy on the truth and destroyed any lingering sense of journalistic integrity.

offended female virtue: trumped up forms of hypocritical selective contempt.

politics and public service: like government, something to be despised. Public service is really just a euphemism for rent-seeking, social engineering government.

As Michael Gerson puts it: “This is what Republicans get for devaluing the calling of public service. When you have contempt for politics, you often get a politics worthy of contempt”.

swastika: a mere political symbol that “nervous nelly” liberals get hysterical about if spotted at a Trump rally.
