THE VOCABULARY OF HEADLINES
Short one today:
After reading headlines today from various news sources, I began to think that perhaps the word “dhimmitude” is not really understood.
DHS Secretary to Hold Press Conference at Mosque Tied to Muslim Brotherhood: Jeh Johnson to hold brief with imam tied to organizations with links to Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas
. . . does this man, this “secretary,” not understand the word dhimmitude * and how it operates?
Democrats to Attend Prayer Service at Radical Mosque
Former home of terrorist spiritual leader Anwar al-Awlaki, who reportedly mentored two of the 9/11 hijackers.
. . . do they think they are serving “multiculturalism and diversity” by ignoring their dhimmitude? Do they know what that word means?
Then I moved over to a religious news service and found this headline:
Dalai Lama: “We Must Dialogue With ISIS”
Okay. He is a grown man and has chosen his religion. It’s a religion that says (later in the article) that “each of us is responsible for universal harmony.”
(Attention New York Post: Here is an article full of empty “platitudes” if you’re still looking for some.)
These headlines: “we must dialogue . . .” Does he observe what “dialogue” means today? Does he know what politically correct “dialogue” is?
Let me illustrate:
Close up. Head to head. Eye to eye. Unintelligible grunts and groans and meaningless platitudes.
How do you think their dialogue will end?
(Funny how the first “vocabulary word” will ultimately lead to the next — providing we continue to excite ourselves with meaningless platitudes and slogans. “Dialogue” leads to “dhimmitude” which dictates “dialogue” which confirms the “dhimmitude” . . . . )
