The Democrat to English Dictionary!

In these difficult and divisive times — with communication fraught with obfuscation, hyperbole, euphemism, and ignorance — I offer the following as a public service.

Selections from...

The Democrat-English Dictionary

Now kindly allow me a definition of my own:

Democrat: a smug, hypocritical, ignorant and/or evil, intolerant, power-hungry ass-hat trying to subvert America from within...all while virtue-signaling (yet wallowing in self-aggrandizement).  A willing tool of tyrannical governments past and present, and a communist apologist currently being used like an infant's diaper by world leaders ranging from Ali Khamenei to Vladimir Putin to Xi Jinping.  Validators of Nikita Khrushchev's purported remark promising, "We will take America without firing a shot.  We do not have to invade the United States.  We will bury you from within."  Singularly smarmy, disingenuous, and dangerous.
