Fight Trump

Trump corrodes the English language with most every tweet, every statement, every speech. He butchers paragraphs that should demonstrate cohesive linear thinking.  He butchers sentences that should articulate clear thoughts.  He even butchers individual words.

Trump’s lies are perhaps the most pernicious attack on the language.  He lies most of the time. He lies several times a day. He even lies to his lies and contradicts what he previously said.

If we (and he) can’t agree on what he’s saying, then his words don’t matter.  They’re untrustworthy and meaningless.

This is his recipe for success.  He primarily communicates not with language, but with emotion.  He bypasses the cerebral cortex to directly access the primitive cerebellum.  He speaks through rage and pain.

It’s difficult to influence the thinking man who lives in a complex world and can change his mind.  It’s easy to own the angry man who only is driven by basic emotions and will never lose his fear.

Fight Trump by fighting for English.  Words DO matter.  It was a common practice to call out Presidents when they told a lie.  It can become tedious with Trump.  But it’s critical that it still be done.  Confront his lies and contradictions when you speak and write, time after time. Don’t enable Trump by allowing the lies to acquire power by their sheer number and frequent repetition.

It’s critical to defend language. Because if we don’t, we let him define – and dumb down – its use.  We’ll lose whole categories of words – and the meanings and gradations behind them – for any concepts that are more complicated than white vs. non-white, Christian vs. other, American vs. the world (except Russia), and Trump vs. the state.  We become the very cartoon that we paint of Trump.

Help Fight Trump

How do you respond to a treasonous, lying, morally bankrupt, incompetent, narcissist President? You resist. And don’t stop. Because inaction and avoidance are precisely what led to this catastrophe.
