A rhetorical trainwreck

A CNN media whore attempts to inoculate globalists in a remarkably inept manner:
CNN host Don Lemon addressed what he called the "ugly history" of the term 'globalist' "and how far-right extremists use it to suggest racial and anti-Semitic ideas" on the Thursday edition of CNN Tonight. Lemon argued because people like Steve Bannon and Alex Jones use the term that a dog whistle is automatically attached to it. He said it is popular with the 'alt-right' and anti-Semites.

"That word globalist keeps popping up, it sounds like a pretty mainstream term, a description of an economic and political ideology," Lemon said. "But it's more than that. It's also become a dog whistle to right-wing conspiracy theorist."
At this rate, it won't be long until these idiots actually start trying to claim that the term "Satanist" is anti-Semitic. They don't seem to grasp that words actually mean things, that words are more than just labels for people whom one irrationally dislikes for some mysterious and unknown, but definitely unjustified reason that cannot possibly be caused by the objectives, behavior, or actions of those being labeled.

Globalists favor global governance. They do so by definition and self-admission. IF it is anti-Semitic to accurately identify such individuals as globalists, THEN logic dictates it is necessarily accurate to assume that Jews are attempting to impose global government on the human race and anyone on the planet who opposes totalitarian one-world dictatorship is justified in their anti-Semitism.

Are you certain you want to go there, Don?

The term "dog-whistle" is actually a dog-whistle to other retarded leftists which communicates "hey we don't have any evidence this person is a Nazi but you have to hate him anyway"

It's also not a "dog whistle" if the other side gets the reference.

People who routinely use "dog whistle" and other terms like "gaslighting" usually don't know what they actually mean and are instead just virtue signaling to each other.

Jews say they rule because they are the smartest and hardest working. White nationalists say that Jews run the world due to their high in-group preferences, ethno-centric networking, and only partially due to their high verbal IQ. From where I'm sitting over the last two years, it certainly looks like the white nationalists were more correct.

Yikes, watch any threat to their control, and they completely panic and totally fail to develop a new strategy.

Who needs logic when you can just label anyone who tries to follow your logic as racist?

The conclusions aren't important, they just want to make the word into another trigger word for the left. They also know that words mean things; that's why they apply the collective machinery of the state, judiciary, media and academy to find ways to drain them of their meaning and turn them into the empty shells we see today.

My interactions with Jews over the years have convinced me that they indeed despise national sovereignty and political decentralization. As a young attorney in Miami I was having lunch with a Jewish colleague and mentioned how decentralization was a good thing because it encourages competition, washes out bad ideas over time, and restrains the abuse of power (similar to anti-trust when applied to business). Without missing a beat he loudly replied, "Race to the bottom!" The very notion that all human activity might not fall under the sway of government worried and offended him, and he grew more hostile as I continued pressing my points. I've experienced this sort of reaction with each and every Jewish acquaintance I've ever discussed such things with. I find it sad because I've always admired the passion of Jews for learning and intellect, a trait that I share (which gave me a rather difficult childhood). But for all their intellect, they seem to lack wisdom. Once government goes global and finally has no external rivals, what happens when the government goes bad? Where do you run then?

I highly suspect that Don Lemon doesn't come up with these ideas or memes on his own.
Someone whispered it into his ear - "Psst... Don... Globalism is antisemitic."

Commies always corrupt language as a means of attacking societies. This has been so since the 1920s. Lemmon, being a commie without realizing it thanks to the way commie ideals have been washed through post-modernism, and from there into academia, is corrupting language without even realizing it.

If your interactions have been limited to the legal profession, your sample might be a little biased. Most lawyers love expansionist government because it's their primary source of income, and they imagine most of society as a low-trust environment because it's the part of society they interact with constantly.

I've seen considerably more diversity of opinion in my own travels. As with most things, it comes down to secular/progressive or religious/conservative (lowercase "c").

And given the large number of law schools per capita, anybody who manages a gpa approaching 3.0 in 'muh studies' and a pulse can matriculate law school. Many schools no longer require the LSAT, just a direct personal rec by somebody important, and the candidate is admitted. That's one thing teaching law taught me, and thus 'journalists' are often worse than you suggest, although I appreciate your aphorism.

I just listened to most of the election one while grouting and I quit where Stefan mentioned that chat mono-tones topic.

I listen to some of the alt-r shows and some of their talking heads are extreme socialists trying to control their leftism, tempered by some more rightist cohorts, and are as alarming to me as multiculturalists. I think their "third way" is white socialist secularist anti-Christian Canada before the biggest waves of the third world arrived a few decades ago.

An excellent point that Vox makes in the second to last paragraph. People and groups reveal their true colors by which labels they are offended by. This story reminds me of the social media outcry that followed a Trump comment two years ago pre-election in a speech where he said something like, "Those people who control the content of the mainstream media." It would be important to note that Trump did not refer to Jews at all in the speech. Nevertheless, the Jewish Left on Twitter was in an outrage,"Seeeee, Trump is soooo Anti-Semtic."

I remember an Alt-Right account was retweeting all of these outrages with the comment, "Well, if the Jew fits..."

Blogger Zwiebel November 06, 2018 1:47 PM

This seems part of the counter-meme strategy that the Deep State is employing.

Recall that Wikileaks exposed the CIA as developing a meme department in 2014: https://thenewsrep.com/76525/one-two-three-four-cia-declares-meme-war/

Now, the CIA and the rest of the Deep State was utterly upended when Trump was memed into the presidency. So they very likely all double-downed their efforts to counter-meme, to effectively throw a monkey wrench into effective memes for the other side.

And here's one of their Deep State operatives Don Lemon---a controlled, slightly stupid, affirmative-actioned, alcoholic homosexual---at one of their major Deep State mouthpieces, the corporate giant CNN---- trying to counteract the very useful "globalist" meme by openly declaring it anti-Semetic, and therefore verboten.

The war of words going on right now is incredible. And I don't mean war of words in the classic, rhetorical sense. I mean the war to define terms like globalist, alt-right, social justice warrior, privilege, bigot, racist, sexual assault, patriarchy, etc. etc. There is no common ground. None. The dictionary has been politicized and there are two English languages. I have tried to listen to the alt-left on Youtube - I don't understand them. I'm not kidding or being a troll, I cannot understand what they are saying. "Cis-gendered-hetero-normative" - this is actual nonsense. They been trained in Babel-speak, and therefore are impervious to persuasion. This is why the NPC meme is a real, actual thing and not just a joke like Pepe (blessed be his name).

They accuse us constantly of "dog whistling" in order to equate all of us with what they consider the worst of us. Which is I suppose redneck neo-nazis squatting in ditches shoving berries up their noses.

Obviously we do talk in codes, because othey own the culture and our livelihoods might be at stake. But they are simply obsessed with the practice, and so it far more often. Presumably because no matter how much power they accrue they'll always be pushing some new perversion for which the public is not ready.

As a book once told me, they project. So we must always be sharing secrets.

Cis-gendered-hetero-normative refers to the state of affairs conductive to normal people; the one involving two sexes that marry and create children.

Yes, the left wing complaint is that society is set up by and for people who have children; that culture reinforces those roles and provides information and support for people who follow them. Using the term helps mark you out as a member in standing of the death cult.

Puts me in mind of Jie Sobran’s hilariously scathing response to William Buckley’s book In Search of Anti-Semitism:

“In other words, the book is written in fear. Nothing in it suggests any appreciation of Jews, any savoring of distinctive Jewish qualities. Its real message is not that we should like or respect Jews; only that we should try not to hate them. But this implies that anti-Semitism is the natural reaction to them: if it's a universal sin, after all, it must be a universal temptation. If people are taught that the Jews are hated everywhere, they are not going to draw the conclusion that it's always the gentiles' fault.

“But this doesn't occur to Bill When he defends Jews, I sometimes feel like saying: "Bill! Bill! It's all right! They're not that bad!"”
