March 5, 2017 SnyderTalk: Words Matter

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says Yahweh Sabaoth. (Zechariah 4: 6)



Words Matter

Originally, the word “idiot” was a scientific term with a precise definition.  It meant “a person with a profound intellectual disability having a mental age below three years and generally unable to learn connected speech or guard against common dangers.”

Over time, the word “idiot” was misused and abused.  Eventually, it morphed into a word that is commonly used to describe people who are utterly foolish or senseless.  Technically, that’s not correct, but that’s all most people know.  They don’t realize that it used to have a precise scientific meaning.

Today, many people regard the use of the word “idiot” as offensive.  I don’t.  I like the common meaning of the word and intend to use the word freely.

The words “liberal” and “progressive” have precise meanings, too.  In days gone by, a “liberal” person was a person who was open to new ideas and willing to consider facts before drawing conclusions.  “Progressive” was used to describe a person who was moving forward based on sound reasoning given the facts.  That’s not how those words are used today.

Adam Smith was a liberal progressive person.  He wrote The Wealth of Nations.  Thomas Jefferson was a liberal progressive person.  He wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Statute of Virginia for religious freedom.  Both Smith and Jefferson were liberal progressives in the technical sense.

Henceforth, I will refer to today’s “liberal progressives” as idiots.  Take California Governor Jerry Brown, for instance.  He likes to get behind a microphone and lambast “climate change deniers”.  He considers himself to be a “liberal progressive”, but he’s an idiot.

I don’t want to get too technical here, but a little explanation is called for.  Until a few years ago, idiots like Jerry Brown were trumpeting “global warming” as their cause du jour.  Most people can remember that.

Problem is the globe stopped warming in the mid-1990s.  It took idiots like Jerry Brown more than a decade to adjust to the underlying reality and come up with another term to describe their cause.  Demonstrating their idiocy, they substituted “climate change” for “global warming” and declared that humankind was responsible for it.

That created another problem.  No one denies “climate change”, so in fact, there are no “climate change deniers”.  People who Jerry Brown calls “climate change deniers” are people who reject the conclusion that humankind is responsible for climate change.

We know for a fact that humankind is not responsible for climate change, because the climate has been changing since the beginning and humankind didn’t arrive on the scene until relatively recently.  Blaming humankind for a “problem” that existed before it did is idiocy.

Many other words have been misused and abused.  For example,

  • “Gay” is a word that is used to describe sexual perverts and other moral degenerates. They aren’t “gay” in the technical sense.  That’s obvious.
  • A woman’s “Constitutional right” to “choose” is used to describe a Constitutional right that doesn’t exist and then using that so-called “right” to engage in premeditated murder with impunity.

By allowing “liberal progressives” (a.k.a., idiots) to get away with stealing those words and completely changing their meanings, we contribute to the problem.  I refuse to do that.

So, technically speaking, it’s incorrect to say that Jerry Brown is an idiot for using the phrase “climate change denier”, but that’s what I’m going to do.  If Governor Brown can get away with misusing and abusing words, I can, too.

Similarly, I reject the notion that moral degenerates and other perverts are “gay”, because they are not.  All the evidence points to the fact that they are seriously disturbed people.  Thus, I will refer to them as what they are: moral degenerates and other perverts.

Likewise, I will refer to women who murder their unborn children  and medical “professionals” who assist them as what they are: murderers.

It’s time for us to take back our country.  A good place to start is by taking back words or by misusing and abusing words purposely to mock and ridicule people who misuse and abuse words.

That’s what I intend to do.  Please join me.  If enough of us do it, we can make a difference.



“If My people who are called by My Name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7: 14)

Change that Yahweh calls “good” begins in the hearts of believers—people who are recognizable because they are different.

We are different because we belong to Him and are called by His Name.  We are Yahweh’s people, His followers.

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17: 22-24)
