“Libtards” & Other Slurs
Additions in italics.
I’m anthropologically/linguistically interested in the word “libtards.”
Especially as we Lizardim have tried to remove the -tard suffix from this site, as well as the use of the word “retard” as a slur and an unnecessarily unkind phrase.
So, why do these RWNJs love using it?
I’ve also been thinking about the various names we call each other, or use to describe things.
- Socialist/Communist/Fascist (with no knowledge that all those things are different)
- Right Wing Nutjobs (RWNJ) aka Wingnuts
- Left Wing Nutjobs (rarely LWNJ) aka Moonbats
- Saint John of Orange
- Princess Dumbass of the Northwoods aka Caribou Barbie
- Et cetera.
What’s up with name-calling?
