What Liberals Say and What They Really Mean
Laid out like a dictionary from A to Z, “Liberwocky” takes a close and comedic look at how liberals use and abuse language to manipulate the citizenry and their attitudes.
Having 40 years of political and media experience, Gold sees through the trickery of today’s political rhetoric. And in this book, he exposes their techniques, their verbal twists and devious turns of phrase, in a way that is both provocative and hilarious.
Including sections such as: “Truly Stupid Liberal Ideas” (poking fun at the U.N., Puerto Rican statehood, and voting rights for felons) and “The American Liberal’s All Time Enemies List” (50 conservatives liberals love to hate), this book — both mocking and informative — is a gut-busting and insightful romp through the language of modern politics.
Here are just a few of the definitions found within this book:
- activist. A politically-concerned citizen given to the vigorous pursuit of Liberal causes. Not to be confused with extremist, a politically-concerned citizen given to the vigorous pursuit of Conservative causes (e.g., animal-rights activist, gun-rights extremist).
- agenda, a.k.a. hidden agenda. As applied by Liberal conspiracy theorists (e.g., Gore Vidal, Norman Mailer), a clandestine plot by a Republican White House to suspend the Constitution, cancel all elections, and establish a government-by-junta. Note also October Surprise.
- bad judgment, a.k.a. bad decision. That which a Liberal politician says he exercised when caught accepting bribes, driving automobiles off piers, or engaging in sex with a young intern. Usually followed by a televised mea culpa in which he appears before voters in Armani-designed sackcloth to ask their forgiveness and understanding for having lost his moral compass. Note also judgmental, the refusal of a benighted constituency to forgive and understand.
- Obscene: Liberal pejorative applied to ‘outrageous’ corporate profits; not, however, applicable to pornographic magazines or motion pictures.
