Leftist speech patterns

Recommended Posts

Wow, just wow...? 

The use of uptalk (and shaming language, rudeness) seems to be fortunately confining itself to lefties and public sector types. 

I used to quite like watching Countryfile on a Sunday but more than half the interviews have been muted recently. 9_9

At least it makes them easily identifiable :ph34r:

I have read a public sector magazine online for a few years and the journos come across as spoiled children.

Every third headline has a "must", "demand" or "urgent" in it.  It's like Owen Jones is the sub-editor, petulantly ranting about stuff and stamping his foot before going away and weeping because he has been ignored again.

Sheesh, the ungrateful sod, he should be celebrating that he wasn't punched.

My favourite: Not cool

Wankers

'That's not OK'. 

Really, who says?

Uptalk? Is that when they escalate a reasonable point you're making to something emotional to make you appear irrational?

I used to have an arch-SJW 'friend' on facebook, whenever we were debating something he would accuse me of 'anguish' or some such. We were debating IQ studies and he says 'spare me the anguish over the bad science'. But I wasn't anguished. I just pointed out the article he quoted was shit.

We were discussing immigration and he claimed I was 'vehemently railing against letting in vulnerable people'. But I wasn't vehemently railing against anything, just pointing out that all the evidence was that 20,000 people sat in Calais, having walked there from Eritrea are probably the least vulnerable people you're ever likely to meet.

Bizarre.

My favourite one though is when a migrant ship sinks and 'hundreds are feared dead'. Feared dead? Really? Who is scared that these people are dead? I would bet almost no one.

Migrants “rescued” in the Med, yeah, when they were 5 miles from the N African coast.

So and so “insisted” that they were right. Usually applies when a politician has taken a completely untenable position, but is going to keep on “insisting” that black is white until you capitulate.

Lefties like to say things are 'problematic'. 

This just means they don't agree with something, but to them of course, that is a major 'problem' because it means that somebody thinks differently to them.

Yep there is a certain smug assurance that half the population are buggering things up because they are too thick, white and uneducated to know what is good for them. Brexit and Trump are cases in point and Jon Sopel is the expert on this new assured leftist smug style of delivery.

Until this Summer never really noticed 'problematic'. Then one by one politicians and assorted opinion formers started saying it. Now it's everywhere.

Last year the same thing happened with 'properly'. I'm scoping 'benign' presently.

One of the reasons these key words become popular is their perceived association with intelligence. For example, in many conversations it would be impolite to say 'that's bollocks', so 'problematic' is a topical substitute.

Many phrases can be traced back to, of all things, F1. Inhabited by intelligent individuals by default, often they need to convey something or nothing by nothing or something.

Hence, Ross Brawn is widely credited with the original usage of 'We are where we are' and 'It is what it is'. Christian Horner began statements with 'No, but yes, no...' and alternatively 'Yes, but no, yes'.

Another source being BBC comedy W1A, which many believe is in fact, a documentary.

I would be amazed if Ross Brawn invented tautology.

Wow just wow is horrific. 

Beginning sentences with I mean or So

:PissedOff:

 

I'm guilty of using the 'Wow' one.

I do agree with the one beginning with 'So' . That annoys me.

What's it with businesses staging Town Hall meetings? I first read it in a newspaper and thought "why is that company taking their staff to the town hall for a meeting when they've got more than enough space to do it at their offices?". A 21st century business holding a meeting in a smelly old town hall? What? Why?

Nah, turned out it's just more business jargon nonsense.

It's just a bleeding meeting!!! :PissedOff:

It's just the name of a presentation where they tell the employees what their great idea for the company is and how it will all work.

Hahahaha, hohohoho.

Yeah right.

Another good one, although this has been pointed out before, is those people who post on Facebook a link to something like 'Neo nazis protest against first Syrian migrants to arrive in Bulgaria' or something with simply: 

'And so it begins.'

Not sure about leftist, but everyone insists in starting sentences with the word 'so' like those punchable kids on US sitcoms do.

 

This really pisses me off.
