Auditory hallucinations

Did you know that Republicans talk in secret codes?

The dog-whistle dictionary
A GOP debate viewer’s guide to coded Christian language

When appealing to Christian conservatives, Republican presidential candidates sometimes use phrases, rhetoric and imagery that are unknown to voters unfamiliar either with the religious meaning of such language or where they fit in the mythology of the “Christian nation.” Thus candidates can signal sympathy with religious conservatives without making overt appeals that might alienate more secular voters.

Such phrases have become popularly known as “dog whistles,” a reference to the high-pitched devices that emit sounds inaudible to humans but attention-grabbing for canines.

The candidates for the GOP’s 2012 nomination have used dog-whistle phrases in previous debates and may again in the debate tonight at the Reagan Library. Here is guide to what to listen for and what these phrases mean:

Here are the double-secret code words:

“Tip of the spear”

“Shining City on the Hill”

“Endowed by our Creator”

“Dred Scott”

The author missed one – the phrase “chicken-fried steak” is the signal that the revolution has started.

    The comments are priceless:

    Real Dog Whistle

    It isn’t a religious reference, but whenever a teabagger says that he is concerned about the deficit, what he is really saying is that he is concerned that a black president is going to take white tax payers money and spend it on black people.

    I was thinking about “dog whistle” last night after Pelosi said something about Rethugs “disrespecting” the President. Disrespecting is a not so subtle dog whistle to the AA community where young AA males may deal with with “disrespecting” with a 9mm.

    I wonder what Obama means with the code word “jobs” ? You know, the word he thinks of the first thing in the morning and the last thing at night 😉

    • votermom says:

      It’s not “jobs” it’s “Job’s” as in Job’s patience is nothing compared to his. Don’t take Obama’s word for it, just ask Nancy.

      Was that a dogwhistle, btw?

        The Paultards even showed up on youtube to make comments, in their seriously deluded batshit crazy kind of way. I think he has the supporters he deserves 🙂

          Makes me want to vote someone off the Island or Stage in our American Idol politics, til it gets down to the top 3 or 4. Just too many right now and all the MSNBC people wanted them to do was attack each other. BUT, Ron Paul supporters seem to be everywhere and many online polls….he WON, lol. I like him, but……I’m still convinced Sarah was the clear winner last night 😀

    I may have to build an ark*. It’s been raining non-stop for days.
    Then the sewer company started digging right in front of our neighborhood, looking for a forced main break. Great.

    *(Is that a dogwhistle?)

    Of course what they haven’t figured out are all the secret non verbal signals they send. True story.

    Ron Paul Debate: Rick Perry Physically Grabs Him, Points at His Face

    Speaking of Ron Paul …

    During the Sept. 7 Republican debate, Ron Paul clashed with fellow Texan Rick Perry once again.

    This time, things got physical.

    During a commercial break, Perry walked up to Paul’s podium, physically grabbed Paul’s wrist, and pointed at Paul’s face with his other hand (photo below from Reuters).
