4. A great rePIG code translator

 


--as seen in the actual script dialog from the 1940s movie, "The Grapes of Wrath"

Listen. What *is* these reds?
Ever'time you turn aroun' somebody
sayin' somebody else's a red. What
is these reds, anyway?

Well, I tell you. They was a fella
up the country named King--got about
30,000 acres an' a cannery an' a
winery--an' he's all a time talkin'
about reds. Drivin' the country to
ruin, he says. Got to git rid of
'em, he says. Well, they was a young
fella jus' come out an' he was
listenin one day. He kinda scratched
his head an' he says, "Mr. King,
what *is* these reds you all a time
talkin' about?" Well, sir, Mr. King
says, "Young man, a red is any fella
that wants thirty cents a hour when
I'm payin' twenty-five."
------------------------------------------
With reference to the above material, it seems that the rePIG code word for red‚ (aka commie‚) has in 71 years, morphed into any/all of the following:

muslib
anarchist
Seditionist
traitor
anti-American
Marxist
leftie
hippie
pinko
leftist
lib
liberal
libtard
socialist
progressive
union member

Why is it that when a person asks for a fair deal‚ they get branded by the rePIGs as a red‚ (or rather, as one of the current equivalent terms listed above)? WTF is it about the rePIGs that they just can't cope with a Populace speaking truth to power? Is their cognitive dissonance just terminal or what? We ALL are the 99ers...you rePIGs and tbuggggers included!

6. But wait! They mostly just use the generic "Socialist" these days and think that's

enough to be really scary. Meanwhile everyone who's scared of Socialism loves the American benefits that come the closest, as long as they already exist

5. Less wrath more battle.

I think we are in more of a "In Dubious Battle" type situation,the wrath comes if the battle is lost.
