‘Controversy’ simply means ‘Against-towardsy’

11 Jul

Contra = against
Versa = towards

When the media says something is ‘controversial’, literally, that means some are for it, some are against it (whatever it is).

But usually, they’re just highlighting the fact that some are against it.

And almost always, it’s progressives who are against whatever it is. (Usually a good thing, then.)

‘Controversial’ therefore ends up merely being mainstream-media-speak for ‘something we progs dislike’.

Therefore, for the most part, right-thinking (and Right-thinking) individuals should embrace ‘controversy’, because it’s almost always something right, proper, noble, pure, worthy, good, and true.

    Will:
    I noticed this same thing with another term the Left has been slinging around lately: ‘homophobia’.

    Not only is this a neologism, it doesn’t have any meaning. A phobia is a psychosomatic illness that impairs normal functioning. Logically, the term could only apply to a homosexual who feared others of his own inclination.

    I think Libtards just like these handy phrases that no one understands to palm themselves off as superior intellects.

    Right. As the media tells us, abortion is not controversial. Antiabortion is. Tax cuts, Welfare reform, Gun rights, Immigration restrictions, and Home schooling are all controversial. Controversial = contra cathedral.

    @ Eric: Progs learned from Orwell how powerful language is, and so they seek to control the discourse, to try to control our very thoughts accordingly. It works with the weak-minded, of which there are all too many, alas…

    @ Bub: Exactly.
