Words have meaning, but what happens when terms are misapplied?
Trace Embry discusses the dilemma next.
Redefining terms, and building arguments based on false premises is routine today. You need to make your kids aware of this by having regular talks with them about it. For example, racism – like mental illness – exists, and it always will. If you buy into the lie that you’re a racist because you believe all lives matter, or that America is still systemically racist, then whatever your skin color is, you’ve been chumped.
Our kids have bought into a lot of this stuff, and it’s the media, social media, and our public schools promoting it. With your kids, Google a guy name Chris Rufo, and get the rest of the story. Remember, the devil is the father of lies, and the master of semantics.
