“Unless you frame yourself, others will frame you — the media, your enemies, your competitors, your well-meaning friends.” -George Lakoff
Word of the Day
The word of the day is brought to you by Rush Limbaugh and Reddit the Donald.
Rush credits the Deep State Combine's latest example of new speak to George Lakoff:
www.rushlimbaugh.com - 2017/02/22 “Protections” Is the New Liberal Word for Regulations
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Before I forget it. That word “protections,” that’s in the New York Times story. I tell you where it’s coming from. Remember George Lakoff (rhymes with)? He was a wordsmith for Democrat Party. This goes back to the Clinton years, and this is a guy that had meetings with Democrats to tell them what words to use in public. “Protections” is the new word for “regulations.” Where they always used to talk about “regulations,” the Democrats are now supposed to talk about “protections.”
Coordinated Media Blitz
If anyone does not believe that they are being fed a false narrative, look how the media obediently falls into Line:
Reddit, The Donald - Rush Limbaugh: WATCH CLOSELY. Media has begun reporting Regulations as Protections. Trump isn't eliminating regulations, he's eliminating protections.
