Kate McMillan On Linguistic Intolerance

How To Win The Word Wars

An insightful post by Kate McMillan argues that conservatives in Canada should learn from their American counterparts and use political-correctness to their advantage.

Rather than being defensive when slurs like 'bible-thumper' or 'redneck' are used as code for 'Albertan', McMillan says that a healthy dose of linguistic intolerance needs to be applied.

By fighting over semantics, the anti-Albertan, anti-Christian, anti-rural bigotry can be exposed and confronted.

The autonomy advocates in Alberta should learn these lessons, and engage in this oft-neglected battle front.
