Wingnut Dictionary – Bon Jovi Islam

Word of the Day:

BON JOVI ISLAM

[bawn\ jōh-vee\ is-lahm]

Definition:

(1) term describing school of thought which holds that that there that there is a thriving peaceful, moderate Islam to which the vast majority of Muslims adheres. (2) expression of sarcasm by far right wingnuts meant to show the opposite is correct, i.e, a thriving, peaceful, moderate Islam is not likely to exist.

Used in Wingnutspeak:

Goddamn that Joe Lieberman! He thinks there is an enormous difference in the Islam practiced by the majority of Muslims and the terrorist political ideology that exploited this religion seeking to provoke a clash of civilizations. This belief is nothing more than hopeful wishful thinking. The hope that there is a thriving peaceful, moderate Islam to which the vast majority of Muslims adheres, is nothing more than Bon Jovi Islam i.e., we're halfway there and livin’ on a prayer. Damn that Joe Lieberman for his belief in Bon Jovi Islam! G a w d d a m m i t ! ! !

Wingnut Dictionary - Homoconflict

Translating Wingnutspeak into American English – Your Word of the Day:

HOMOCONFLICT (noun)

Pronunciation: hō-mō-kän-flikt

Definition:

According to Wingnutopian Ideology Homoconflict (a) occurs as a result of showing tolerance, acceptance, indifference or support toward gay folks; (b) can occur as a result of insufficient hostility shown toward the extension of civil rights to gay folks; (c) forms a dissonance between hostility and acceptance toward civil rights for gay folks (such an individual would suffer from homoconflict); (d)serves as a counter-revolutionary force impeding the natural occurrence of class cultural consciousness within the Wingnuttariat.

Used in a Sentence:

Damn that Ann Coutler! How dare she give a speech to the homosexual Republican group GOProud that promotes same-sex marriage and military service for open homosexuals. Damn her to Heck. We now must ban her from speaking at any of our conservative events due to her Homoconflict and the risk that her ideas may infect others and impede real Americans from achieving class-cultural consciousness. Gawdammit!

Context within Wingnutopian culture:

Within Wingnutopian Culture there is a split over the danger caused by homoconflict.

Some Wingnutopians believe that Homoconflict is a counterrevolutionary force which impedes the freedom of mankind and the Revolution of the Wingnuttariat. This occurs as the presence of Homoconflict impedes the Wingnuttariat (i.e., Real Americans) from achieving class cultural consciousness which many Wingnutopians believe is a condition precedent for the Revolution of the Wingnuttariat. During which it is believed, the Winguttariat will rise up and throw off the chains of moderation, implement pure Free Market Fundamentalism and create a right wing utopian society based upon big business, bullets, bayonets and (certain parts of) the bible. This revolution will lead to a perfected society and ultimately to the Freedom of Mankind.

Other Wingnutopians view homoconflict differently. These Wingnutopians believe that the act of showing tolerance, acceptance, indifference or support toward gay folks equates to efforts to extend civil marriage rights, open service in the military and, according to one Wingutopian, “the idea that sodomy [i]s just an alternate lifestyle.” In the worse case, these thinkers believe that Homoconflict increases the likelihood of legalized same-sex marriage rights which would, according to this school of thought, cause the Lord Almighty to destroy the Earth.

Wingnut Dictionary - Word of the Day:

REGULARIZE
Definition
:
Within Tea Party Sect of the GOP the term “Regularize” (a) can be used as a synonym for the word “amnesty” in the context of providing a path to citizenship (i.e., amnesty) for illegal immigrants working in the United States; (b) can refer to the involuntary “Teabagging” of an elected official through defeat in a GOP Primary or in the general election.
Used in a sentence:
(1) "To put an end to amnesty once and for all, to secure our borders, to end any of this misguided talk about open borders, it is time to 'regularize' the status of John McCain. Send him back here to be a citizen among us," (2) “John McCain was sending out letters earlier this spring offering the boilerplate denial, saying 'Well you know I oppose amnesty.' And then in the next paragraph saying 'we must grant concessions to these people and regularize their status.' That's the new term [for amnesty]."
Heck, I think JD Hayworth has a point here, not about the undocumented workers but about J-Mac. I’d love to see McCain “regularized” this November. I don’t think JD has got what it takes to get the job done in the primary. But if he’s man enough he can help “regularize” McCain this November.

Translating Wingnutspeak to English: The Kurtz Fallacy


Word of the Day:
The Kurtz Fallacy:
Quote of the Day:
I was particularly amused by the argument that Obama has never openly advocated socialism in his various publications. One key difference between American and European socialists is that the American variety resorts far more often to deliberate stealth.
Stanley Kurtz, NRO Guy on why the President is a socialist.
This one line, a Freudian Slip, if you will, sums up the Wingnutopian position quite nicely. As such as Kurtz can say: “Obama is a socialist; that other guy over there is a socialist and all of those people are socialists. Sure they never advocate ‘socialism’ but that is because they are TRICKY.”

That is the argument in a Nutshell.

Imagine if we were to turn this argument around and say “The former half term republican governor of a large western state is a Fascist. Sure she never has advocated Lebensraum, racial supremacy and world domination, but that is because she is TRICKY.”

The next line of reasoning goes like this:
Your conclusion does not seem right. Socialists pretty much have to believe in X, Y, and Z. Those guys you called Socialists don’t believe in X, Y and Z. How can they be socialists then?
Kurtz’s Wingnutopian response is like this:
“That is correct. Some socialists believe in X, Y and Z. However Socialists can also believe in things that I define as Socialism and thus, the President and that guy and those other people are Socialists because I define them as being such.”
You can’t make this up.

This is the Kurtz Fallacy. If Socialism requires the presence of sufficient levels of X, Y, and Z. The absence of sufficient levels of X, Y, and Z does not preclude the presence of Socialism if Kurtz says so.
