When Did THIS Happen?
By Daniel Rigney
When did conservatism become the opposite of conservationism?
When did Rush Limbaugh become a climate scientist?
When did NRA become the “well-regulated militia” stipulated in the 2nd Amendment?
When did corporations become persons?
When did universities become football teams?
When did civil servants become “bureaucrats”?
When did the word “bureaucracy” come to exclude corporate bureaucracies?
When did the Democratic Party become the “Democrat Party”?
When did Jesus become a Republican?
When did Robin Hood become a villain?
When did the phrase “redistributionist policies" exclude policies that redistribute resources upward?
When did the phrase “class warfare” exclude class wars directed downward?When did oil and gas companies become “energy companies”?
When did dirty coal become “clean coal”?
And did all these things happen before or after pork became “the other white meat”?
Just wondering. Do you have a WDTH or two of your own?
P.S.: Jimmy Fallon, why not start one of your famous twitter waves (you call them hashtag games) with the question “When did THIS happen?”?
