It is a word used by people who claim "illegal alien" is a dehumanizing term.

Hypocrisy. Now, that word is not in their dictionary.

To understand pro-illegal rhetoric, Bizarro-world is recommended reading. To understand the pro-illegal mindset, a PhD in...never mind...

Just to set the record straight,

...(....especially since the above offered definitions are so far off base as to be ludicrous and not at all descriptive)

Rethugnants are corrupt politicians who hide behind a Republican label.

They aren't Republicans, ...so I see no need to identify them as such, they're simply thugs.

Then you have the so-called self identified 'Republicans' who propose and enact laws which are decidedly un-American and decidedly not reflective of any Republican values.

I don't call those people Republicans either, ....I call them Repugnants,

....because they are repugnant.

The Republican Party has been taken over by people who are not Republicans, most of the 'Republican' office-holders of today are radicals, they're extremists who have co-opted the Republican name in favor of something far different than what Republicanism stands for.

What do you call corrupt Democrats?

What do you call un-American Democrats?

Rethugnant and Repugnant are terms used by the radical left. When reading them, I naturally see the author as a radical leftist. Are you a radical leftist?

I repeat: What do you call corrupt Democrats?

What do you call un-American Democrats?


Your failure to answer these pointed questions is revealing.

You are correct.

My failure to answer to your every insipid request is revealing....

...it reveals that I don't put much stock in rhetorical nonsense.

I call anyone who is corrupt just what they are, corrupt thugs.

Same with un-Americans.

I haven't coined any term to deal with Democrats specifically, but that might change when they gain control of policy....

You seem to be only interested in placing others in some box which is convenient to your aim...

...sorry to disappoint you, but since you don't know much about me or what my views entail, you'll have to deal with that anyway you care to...

...I don't feel as if I'm compelled to describe all my beliefs just for the purpose of gratifying your compunctions to label others.

Address the topics at hand without trying to pigeonhole everyone else into some ill-defined category, you might find it's easier to comprehend what's actually being said, instead of injecting all your bias into every response you might find the least bit uncomfortable..

So there can be a radical right, but not a radical left?
