A Glossary of Right-Wing Terms & Phrases*

*as used by right-wing politicians & pundits, #TuftonStreet 'think-tanks', the right-wing press & right-wing 'influencers', Spiked, the Spectator, Times Radio, talkRADIO, & Britain's Fox News, GB News.
This creative, divisive, & profoundly misleading use of language by free-market elites, & the hard-right & far-right, has evolved gradually over the last forty years, emerging hand-in-hand with underregulated free-market capitalism, the #climatecrisis, & the #CostOfLivingCrisis.
The manufactured "war on woke" is a distraction, designed to divide voters.

Under cover of COVID, wealth has been transferred from poor to rich on an unprecedented & unimaginable scale, eroding democracy & resulting in hardship, conflict, mass death, & environmental collapse.

New thread for afternoon cross-examinations of Lucki and Duheme by convoy lawyer Brendan Miller.
Miller asks RCMP commish to confirm this assessment that, contrary to suggestions yesterday, that there weren't grave threats or incidents w/ diplomats under protection in Ottawa during convoy. Lucki doesn't know what was said y'day, she'd have to look at RCMP threat assessment.
Miller asks, and Lucki agrees, she's a cabinet appointment, serves at pleasure, and she's aware of the JWR "scandal".
Miller says it was over public servants- dir pub prosecutions- being directed by political executive to act in a certain way.

Originally, Attis was the mortal son of King Croesus. Despite a prophecy warning of his death, Attis was accidentally killed in a boar hunt. In later times, he was seen as the son of Nana, a nymph or female spirit, and Agdistis, a hermaphrodite monster (though technically,

Dionysus (Roman Bacchus, also called Liber) was the Greek god of wine. In the mainstream myth, he is the son of Zeus and a mortal woman named Semele. Despite having a human mother, he was born a full- fledged god, and went around the ancient world, teaching, fighting Amazons
