The Lefty Lexicon

Thanks to Gman for drawing my attention the Lefty Lexicon.

 My favourites are:

Beacon of excellence – archaism: any organ of state that achieved – or 'delivered' – what it was supposed to.

Disproportionate – foreign affairs: Describes any act by USA or Israel.

Hate-crime – same as 'normal' crime as far as victims are concerned – but much more distressing for Lefties.  

Intolerance – Intolerance can only committed against certain defined groups of people. These do not include, Americans, the middle class, white manual workers, rural people,  business and Christians obviously.

Israel – see 'disproportionate' and 'legitimate grievances'. Country the size of Wales, with 5m inhabitants, that is entirely responsible for any and all delinquent Islamist behaviour the world over.

Justice – Government: as in ‘social justice’. Means taking money earned by the general public to give to particular groups that Lefties approve of. Replaces market economics.

Progressive – describes ideas generally thought up around 40 years ago – that still don't work.

Racist – means "shut up!" – and is much, much worse than being violent, thoughtless or unkind. In fact, easily the worst crime ever conceived of.

Religion –

  • Christianity: irrational, dangerous belief that material things may not be the principal motive behind human behaviour.
  • Judaism: most Israelis are Jewish, so probably 'intolerant'.
  • Islam: always needs to be 'understood'.

Skills-based – education: "teach the little ba**ards Microsoft Word or something. They don't actually need to know anything…".

Workers – notional ‘class’ of people that Lefties once claimed to represent. Now replaced by college lecturers, human rights lawyers, pressure group employees, civil servants with 'liaise' in their job title – and other people you would probably not want over for supper.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
