I’m noticing, more and more, that there are many commonly used terms that are being redefined, by the left, to mean something completely different from the true definitions.
- Racism – Most of us define racism as: a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others. The left now uses the term to describe disagreement with their agenda.
- Illegal Alien – a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country’s authorization. According to the left, those that should be defined by that term are simply called undocumented immigrants, and, to several of the current Democrats running for the nomination for President, they should be called de facto citizens!
- Truth – conformity with fact or reality; verity. To the left, it means anything that they say.
- Patriotism – devoted love, support, and defense of one’s country; national loyalty. To the left it means hatred for one’s country.

There are so many more “redefinitions” out there, but these are some of the most disturbing. But, to quote a recent political candidate, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig”. There is no room for agenda driven redefinition of core principles or values, but to so many with leftist ideologies, the agenda is more important that truth or reality.
