Words with fiends

Whenever liberals are in a tight spot, they adopt the scorched-earth policy of argumentation. With no answer, they start demanding that you define words: What do you mean “liberal”? What do you mean “democracy”? What do you mean “patriotism”?

They retreat from argument, burning the English language as they go.

Accustomed to playing the role of Soviet commissar censoring the news when it comes to black violence, the Non-Fox Media are in a panic now that the alternative media can post videos of young black males punching out random strangers.

As a result, liberals are denying the “Knockout Game” exists by refusing to understand the meaning of basic words, such as “game” and “trend.”

Knockout Game-debunkers place great significance, for example, on the fact that the assailants have not signed affidavits calling it a “game.”

Thus, the New York Times noted that in one recent case of a random stranger being knocked out by young black males, “the attacker insisted the assault was not part of any organized ‘game.’”

A 78-year-old woman is punched by a young black male for no reason, and the Times‘ central point is: “Perp says it’s not a ‘game.’”

Similarly, in Philadelphia magazine, Stephen Silver said of two recent knockout attacks in Philadelphia that he wasn’t counting either one as “confirmed cases of the Knockout Game” on the grounds that the puncher said he “was not participating in the Game.”

Until the assailants admit they’re playing a game, liberals say the Knockout Game is a “hoax.”

Obviously, it doesn’t matter what the participants call it. I don’t know anyone who calls himself a “pundit,” but that doesn’t mean people don’t go on TV and give their opinions. Every liberal denies he’s a liberal, but that doesn’t mean “liberals” don’t exist. (Would that it were so!)

While we’re on the subject, I can’t think of a single instance in which someone has admitted to committing a “hate crime,” but liberals are always calling things “hate crimes.”

The Huffington Post concluded that the Knockout Game was “fabricated” based on one of the most famous victims, James Addlespurger, denying that it was a game. Instead, he calls his knockout an “assault,” saying “game” is just a “label.”

Hey, you know what else is just a label? The word “assault.” “James Addlespurger” is a label. Another expression for “label” is “word” — meaning, “something liberals try to blow up whenever they’re about to be trapped into admitting the truth.”
