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 29-Nov. 3, 2016

authenticity and authority: Donald Trump is succeeding because voters think that everything he says is “real” and unvarnished. He does not hypocritically say one thing and believe another. He “tells it like it is,” even if the pc crown and corrupt media don’t like what he says.

Trump’s “authority” is really authoritarianism. He doesn’t say things because they’re right, or command an action because it’s good. Rather, what he says is right just because he says it, even if it’s clearly a lie or distortion, and what he commands is good, even if it is morally heinous (torturing, banning Muslims, seeing Mexicans as murderers and rapists, punishing women for abortions, etc.). The only shared meanings in Trumpland are meanings he creates. Even authoritarianism is preferable to liberalism.

Election Day: Judgment Day, when the lib-Dems get their comeuppance.

ending a war: what the Dems confuse with walking way from a war.

go-between governing: the Obama/Clinton usurpation of representative government via unaccountable executive orders, bureaucracies, various “czars” , and the courts. This workaround solution to avoiding direct tyranny.

governing: in Hillary’s mind, complicating Americans’ lives with more rules, more legal pitfalls for citizens, and more mandates for business. Her regulatory model is to destroy businesses while doling out favors to political constituents, billing the taxpayer all the while.

lamestream media: inbred, conflicted, morally-challenged. Loyal lapdogs of Clinton, Inc.

lost American jobs: due to affirmative action, government regulation,  immigrants, China and Mexico, etc.

mutual respect: Kumbaya political correctness.

pollution: the sacrifice we make for capitalism.

Along with premature death, environmental destruction, gaping inequality, etc.

sympathy fatigue: Being sick of pc culture: the feeling that the liberals love everyone but you, including criminal immigrants, Afro-Americans on welfare, shorebirds, college students with “trigger” issues, transsexuals, etc.

welfare: theft from the American people.
