A “progressive” treat: a dictionary with blank pages
One of the basic techniques employed by leftids to make people crazy and wreck their countries is to turn language upside-down and inside-out. This is done with gusto wherever Democrats rule.
For a word to be of any use at all, it must have a specific meaning and exclude all other meanings. Otherwise you wind up saying “I’d like a poke in the eye, please” instead of whatever it was you really wanted.
Democrats like to ban “potentially offensive language,” and never mind that every single word in the Oxford English Dictionary is “offensive” to somebody. But only people who have been made truly crazy can appreciate left-wing policies.
