We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Now we understand! From the WSJ “Best of the Web”:
“Someone at FiredOglake.com calls Warren an "eliminationist hate preacher." We didn't know what this meant, so we followed the links and ended up with this definition:
“’That's how eliminationist hate works, regardless of its target: Its aim is to threaten and intimidate not merely the immediate target, but anyone who might think of speaking out on their behalf. This cuts the target off from the community support it might normally enjoy and leaves them feeling even more isolated.’
“What, really, is eliminationism?
“It's a fairly self-explanatory term: it describes a kind of politics and culture that shuns dialogue and the democratic exchange of ideas for the pursuit of outright elimination of the opposing side, either through complete suppression, exile and ejection, or extermination.”
What we have just been given is a secret buzzword for the Left’s entire strategy for the last four years.
Doesn’t that perfectly describe what the Left has been using in place of reasoned debate? The leftist writer, by using their code word to attack Warren, has given the rest of us the key to, or a new understanding of, the deliberate intent behind what we thought was the “Bush Derangement Syndrome”. We are not surprised.
