A few nights ago, I watched an episode from True Blood. In scene after scene, filthy words were uttered like they were terms of endearment. I told my husband this kind of language was unheard of when I was growing up and I grew up in a very rough neighborhood. Then it occurred to me that this denigration of our language is deliberate. Its been so flagrant most of us barely notice – the transformation of the way we communicate through media especially entertainment. Actors and singers use foul language so it must be OK or at least thats what we think. What we don’t realize is there’s a war going on and its not the much touted war against women or children or terror, Its a war against words, and its aimed at every person in America. The rules for engagement were set quite a few years ago but we’re just beginning to feel its effects on how we converse. You can’t call a fag a fag but you can call a woman bitch or c***. You can call a cracker a cracker but don’t call a Nig a Nig. Don’t say “Merry Christmas,” but “Happy Ramadan” is just fine. Its OK to chant Allah Akbar but forget the Pledge of Allegiance. You can say, F*** but don’t say fat. Don’t call a Muslim a muzzie but call a Christian “Kafir” and no one bats an eye. Ask all the questions you want about the Nazis, Native American genocide, African slavery but don’t ask about the Bolsheviks, the Holodomar, Ottoman Slavery, or the Armenian genocide. Talk all you want about woman’s rights but don’t say a word about baby in Utero rights. Certain things are better left unsaid or else.
Welcome to the New America, a land where the Left owns us by controlling language and therefore our thoughts. They tell us what to say and not to say, what to question and not to question, what to accept and what to reject. What better way to bring a nation like the US down than by demagoguery and bullying? No need to get physical- just denigrate, ridicule and mock and the opposition evaporates like water in the summer heat.
Language is key to culture and identity. Alter the foundation language and you alter the culture. After a generation or two, the culture of your grandparents is forgotten.
The Left is Anti whatever America once stood for. For a long time, they worked behind the scenes to undermine the power of this country by first attacking our core faith by forcing us to remove it from our daily language. Halt Christian prayer in schools, stop Christmas caroling, stop “Merry Christmas” and everyone submits without a fight. Thats how the Left alters thought processes. Take away prayer and stories, traditional sayings, and songs and soon they will be forgotten. The Left knows this and have taken great care to instill us through scholastic indoctrination, an ignorance of who we’re supposed to be by forcing us to forgo the language our forefathers took for granted. The potty mouth culture of today was unheard of in the past but that was because America had a solid traditional family structure that was supported by a strict Christian base of strict Mores & ethics. The F word was so rare it actually had shock value. Now its so common its barely noticed. Notice the introduction of the “B”, & “C” words in TV episodes that our children have access to. Its being done deliberately to make trashing our culture seem like the cool thing to do.
In less than a decade, our language has been downgraded so severely it has reduced our conversations to smut worlds, and with that our respectabiliity as a people; for its through words that we show others what kind of people we are. Read novels from the turn of the century and compare them to the novels of today. Compare the language of movies from the 40’s & 50’s to the movies of today- a divide so wide its hard to imagine they were made in the same country. Go to Youtube and watch the likes of Katherine Hepburn and Grace Kelly. What strikes you first is their eloquence in language. That eloquence no longer exists and thats a great loss.
Smut words are acceptable But don’t you dare use words the Left deems offensive. Don’t speak against homosexual marriage, or amnesty. Talk about multiculturalism and diversity but forget American exceptionalism. Don’t open your mouth about the loss of America’s manufacturing; its all about going Green & environmental protection. Don’t complain about illegal aliens and protecting our borders; the Left doesn’t believe in borders. Don’t defend your right to own a weapon because you will be suspect. You see, the Left owns the media, education and the government. They’re everywhere- watching you. Better to speak as you are told or they will shut you down.
We didn’t realize it until it was almost too late- our language, our identity and culture were altered to a point its almost unrecognizable. We’ve been had for decades because we choose to believe that our leaders were the good guys watching over us like a “Big Brother.” Man, we sure got fooled. Maybe we’re not too forgone to save our language and culture but we’re cutting it awful close. Even if we turn about face now and face the demonic pressures that beset our country, it will take decades to unravel the ruin of our language. The best chance we have is to start is with what is uttered from our own mouths, to teach our children and grandchildren that our language is not to be shaped by an elite that looks upon us as animals to be broken and then trained to their specifications. Our language belongs to us. It can be restored to its former beauty if we work hard.
