I have lived through a whole lot of rhetorical fuckery in my exhausting time dealing with the American right. I’ve seen us called every -ist that they found scary: Marxist, communist, socialist, anarchist (as if those are bad things). I’ve watched us be called demonic and anti-Christian and, heavens forbid, atheists (as if that’s a bad thing). According to conservatives, we on the left hate the country, hate the troops, hate the flag, hate the police, love terrorists, love socialism (that one again), love taxes, love drugs, love perverse sex (as if that’s a bad thing), and love killing babies. Specific Democrats have been baselessly accused of murder, and a couple of those specific ones are specifically Bill and Hillary Clinton.
