A Quick Guide To Liberal Word Games

Cross-Posted from DanCirucci.com


Words are important.

Words have meaning.

Liberals will tell you this time and time again.

That’s why liberals spend a lot of time changing words and inventing a whole new language with new words and new phrases. They know that if they can control the language they can control the narrative. And if they can control the narrative, they’re on their way to winning.
Don’t let them do it.

Understand how they manipulate the language. Know what they really mean.
