What Are Words For….

I must start by saying that Missing Persons was actually a great group from the 80s that did not get nearly enough play… They can’t technically be classified as a one hit wonder… but close enough…. If you haven’t heard of them…..look them up….. Words is their most popular song…

Words….pronunciation….spelling…definitions…. Here I thought Merriam-Webster was kind of in charge of these… but apparently….I was wrong….. I don’t know how it happened… but at some point…..a unnamed imposter took over and has changed….literally changed…. the definition of words… and no one has noticed… We now live in a world where a dictionary…. (you know an actual dictionary….. one that smells like an old rug…) is almost as rare as a payphone …. That’s fine …I understand that we now have technology and we’re not in the stone age …. but…… when technology causes laziness…. it’s a problem…. Technology does lead to laziness…. Why bother to think and come up with a theory of your own about anything…when you can just Google someone else’s opinion….

Today I had planned to write a blog making fun of antifa’s secret love of capitalism (stay tuned for that one) when for some reason I decided to google fascist…. Now…. I have never taken every google definition to be accurate…. If you want more information an encyclopedia (not…I repeat NOT Wikipedia) is a great way to get it…. Especially older encyclopedias that were published before political correctness was even a phrase…. There is no information on political correctness in older encyclopedias….

Ok…. back to my story…..

I was wondering where these idiot antifa members were getting their misinformation (surely anyone who was a proponent of fascism that predates Mussolini has yet to be researched by them…therefore they can’t begin to understand the meaning of it)…..when I googled the word fascist…..

A quick side note…. I’m not going to delve into the actual topic of fascism here…. The easiest way to describe it is one word….. Ants…. It’s that simple….Research it for yourself…. Dig deep and you’ll understand what I mean… If you don’t understand what I mean by ants….try thinking along the lines of termites…. I will explain this in detail one day…..

So… I googled fascist and was immediately met with this definition…

An advocate or follower of the political philosophy or system of fascism…..

 

Fair enough….but… what if I’ve been living in my parents basement for a few years and I don’t know what fascism is….. ??.

Gee …. I’d better look that up as well……..

Fascism……….

 

noun: fascism; noun: Fascism; plural noun: Fascisms
an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.
synonyms:
authoritarianism, totalitarianism, dictatorship, despotism, autocracy; <–Somewhat accurate…….

More Nazism, rightism; <— What the fuck is this…???
nationalism, xenophobia, racism, anti-Semitism; <— Can someone please tell me how this fucking applies……??
jingoism, isolationism; <— Isolationism doesn’t even have a fucking M-W definition..!!….
neofascism, neo-Nazism
“a film depicting the rise of fascism in the 1930s”
(in general use) extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME….????…….

 

Poorly educated young people google shit like this and believe that is what the word actually means… and because they are lazy…. they don’t bother to dig just a little deeper to realize that the definition they just read couldn’t be further from the truth… ( pretty sure Carlyle was pretty fucking left-winged…..)

Here’s the Merriam-Webster definition…….

1: often capitalized :  a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

2:  a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control

 

I’m not right or left…. I’m a Libertarian… but this seems a little more left to me….. Thanks antifa…… and the communists you wish to imitate….

 

I can only imagine how many definitions have been taken over in this same manner…. I will have to continue my search at another time….. (I work for a living)…

In the meantime…. I shall end this by quoting a line from a great Missing Persons song….

“What are words for when no one listens anymore..??..”
