An alternate wording

AKA: let me fix that for you.

I was perusing Facebook a couple of days ago (yes, I know it was a mistake, but sometimes I just can’t help myself) when I noticed one of those slogan/graphic thingys on the wall of one of my left-leaning facebook friends.  It said:

“small government” is fascist dog whistle for “More Corporate Control”

I was tempted to reply with the following:

Clever.  High buzzword content.  Rings all the right bells in certain circles.  Factually inaccurate, though, as “small government” and “fascist” are, by definition, mutually exclusive.

I didn’t post it.  No sense harshing someone’s mellow over something as petty and inconsequential as accuracy.  Especially since the leftist narrative has incorrectly equated “fascist” with “right-wing” for so long you can’t convince them otherwise.  It did, however, suggest the following alternate slogan:

“fascist” is leftist dog whistle for “anyone we don’t like”

    I see crap like that all the time. I also see tons of ads for left wing pages that I’ve tried to get rid of. If I have to have ads in my face, I’d rather they be relevant to me. you know, like a sale on comic-con tickets or ads for fat-girl clothing. You should do a post on that shower curtain I set you a picture of.
