Posted by mchalesarmy on 9/13/2012 3:32:00 PM (view original):Well, according to Mike there's a subtle difference between dislike and hate.
It is imperative for the left to spread the mantra of hate whether it really exists or not.
If they can lump a 5-7 level of dislike into level 10 full fledged HATRED, it makes their base much less likely to look at the actual facts being discussed.
It doesn't matter what you are saying because you are a hateful racist so I put no value in your opinion.
And it seems the common argument from the right in here is "nothing can be discussed because it's always about race".
Like the subtle difference between a 9 and a 10.
He also gave a very easy to understand example.
I think it is more a case of actually trying conveying a thought.
Accuracy in defining words goes a long way towards that end. If your definition of hatred is applied to my life experiences then I can agree that many "hated" Obama early on.
Now MOST people wouldn't understand your
personal & very broad sweeping definition of "hatred", and may be confused. So in order to avoid confusion some people try to stick with more commonly accepted definitions.
Additionally when a person twists the "real" definition of a word into their own twisted idea of what they want it to mean, then there will be posts trying to clarify. You call it semantics.
