Why Is My Bullshit Detector Going Off?


Something about this story doesn’t ring true. Reuters (1/13/15):

Revived Nazi-era term ‘Luegenpresse’ is German non-word of year

A German linguists’ panel has chosen a Nazi-era term “Luegenpresse” (lying press), which anti-immigrant protesters have revived and shouted at the media, as the country’s non-word of the year.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has condemned the demands – an end to multiculturalism – of the grassroots “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West” (PEGIDA) at weekly rallies as “reprehensible” and said her conservative-led government would use all constitutional means to fight intolerance.

“Luegenpresse”, first used in Germany by critics of the free press during World War One, earned the dubious “Unwort des Jahres” (Non-Word of the Year) honor in the eyes of a panel of experts out of 730 terms submitted by 1,250 contributors.

“‘Luegenpresse’ is a word contaminated by the Nazis,” said Nina Janich, a professor at the Technical University Darmstadt and head of the six-member jury that selects such terms each year from the submissions.

“It’s used deliberately in the PEGIDA movement to steer it against those (in the media) who criticize their movement.”

The announcement of the “Unwort des Jahres” is a major news item in Germany and holds a special resonance in a country whose language is filled with words and concepts tarnished to the point of taboo status by their use under the Nazi regime.


Maybe I’m missing something, but I’m not seeing how these dots connect. The Nazis spoke German, but are there any examples of them using “luegenpresse” in a manner that would taint all future uses of this word?

But that isn’t what triggered my bullshit detector.

Doesn’t it seem awfully conveeeenient that these two guys use a “tainted” Nazi word in front of a reporter holding a camera – a reporter who just happened to know what German words have been tainted by the Nazis? I never heard that word before. Have you?

So who are these two guys? Did anyone try to interview them?

  1. The guy in the red Trump hat looks like he MIGHT be someone who was organizing leftists to infiltrate Tea Party rallies to make them look racist, but cant be sure. He & his efforts made the news so you might be able to find something on it.

  2. Lulu says:

    German is mostly compound words. “Lying Press” (stupid press was used too) is what the Germans called their media during the migrant invasion because the media propagandized the horror that Merkel had done. Every word of German could be said to be something used during an earlier era. The German media like the US media is run by globalists. And like the in the US not towing the globalist open border line is Nazi, racist, or just plain old “hate”. This “professor” is just another academic shill telling people to “shut up” via the type of censorship of trying to deem a perfectly good German everyday term “verboten” (always by an elite expert authority). Trump has driven the US media crazy with his “third grade” language which is so basic that they can’t forbid the words he uses. The current term of art by Trump is “rigged”. Everything is rigged against the little guy, him, our system of government, etc. The media can’t find a way to ban the word “rig” because it is so basic. They also never go after and critique what Trump says is going on (because it is true) but the term or world used or that such rude things are even mentioned. The entire German language would have to be deemed Nazi according to the article’s logic which is whacked.

    • Lulu says:

      It is all about censorship and control of information. Globalism cannot function any longer without it. The free flow of information (and how incompetent they are) is endangering the scheme. http://www.globalresearch.ca/politically-correct-the-war-on-free-speech-free-press-free-internet-and-the-truth-what-is-the-endgame/5552146 Everything Bronco, Hilary, the DNC, the UN, media in the US and EU have done in the past few years including forbidding the use of certain worlds is about control.

      • lateblum says:

        You are absolutely correct, Lulu. Language, education, health and medicine, taxes on certain types of food, business and mergers, communication. They’re all part of the same plan. Last night I read an article linked to within the “story” of Maria Bartiromo interview with Ezekiel Emanuel. This was a report about a young woman who had been diagnosed with scleroderma and whose insurance had first approved and then denied medications that could possibly help prolong and/or ease her remaining life. After a proposition in CA r/t authorizing assisted suicide had passed, the insurance company (health care service organization, if you will) denied coverage of this medication, but offered her the option of life ending medications for about $1.20. Of course we cannot call them “death panels”. So I guess we should call the people who guide the decisions of health care, “life control panels”.
        I can’t find the link while I’m on my iPad without losing my comment. When I am able to find it, I’ll post the link.

        • Anthony says:

          In the first incarnation of the ACA, “death panels” were called “The Comparative Effectiveness Research Review Board”. Its fancy language to enable the IRS (who implements Obamacare) to determine the quality of meds and procedures allowable to individuals based on how much tax they paid.

          In other words, if you have been disabled by a catastrophic illness, you’re not allowed to work (working while disabled is a felony), so you pay little or no taxes. Consequently, benefits and meds that “cost too much” are denied you, and you have to get a less user friendly med or procedure, or just have them denied to you altogether.

          However, upon each denial of meds or procedures that were previously available, your allowance for “end of life counseling” is increased, offering no other recourse than to seek therapy to embrace your own death. Short version: “genocide”

    Case closed.

  4. Lulu says:

    This topic is interesting because I spent the weekend in Austin (in a hotel because my husband won’t fit into our daughter’s tiny apartment) with a bunch of European tourists staying there. Germans, Swedes, Norwegians, Brits, and a couple of Spaniards all clowning around in Texas for fun. Some were there for the F1 (whatever that is) race, the barbecue trail, or just like western type scenery driving around in cooler weather. Very nice, friendly, curious types. When I would recommend (cheap) very good restaurants or talk (really explain) about Trump or illegal aliens they were all ears! They talked cars (they want their own pickup trucks) with my husband. To a person they are not happy campers with their own governments and see a big crash coming with the EU.

    • taw46 says:

      I have a friend from Germany who comes here once or twice a year. He never spoke a word against Merkel or the government. Until after the big invasion last year. Then he had lots to say about how the German people feel about Merkel. Definitely not a happy camper. I haven’t talked to him in several months, but I know it must be awful for them now.

  5. NBD says:

    The term dates to middle of the 19th century but was widely used by the Nazis, particularly Goebbels. It’s a favorite of movements like Pegida: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%BCgenpresse
    It is used on alt-right boards like Stormfront, Occidentaldissent, and various sub-reddits. It is also widely used by far-right German groups with respect to the current refugee influx. So, it’s known to a lot of Americans who have white nationalist sympathies and follow the anti-refugee movement in Europe. It’s not insane to think that some pro-Trump white nationalists would use it, but it is awfully convenient that they’d be on camera doing it.

    • Lulu says:

      I would argue that it is simply another German compound word. There are zillions of them. This one struck a nerve because it is true thus must be eliminated through planned and enforced social censorship. Wikipedia is known as a lefty controlled social arm of globalism and ruthlessly edited and censored to control information. Half or more of the “Stormfront” type shit is fake and agit-prop. Posting anything about criminal activity of migrants on Facebook will get a German (and increasingly Brits) arrested. They are being ruthlessly censored, threatened, and terrorized by their own government in ADDITION to Muslim migrants. Being in favor of controlled and enforced borders is now considered White Nationalism which is horseshit since blacks and people of Latino heritage want it too. We are seeing a realignment politically and the globalists are fighting it for all they are worth.

    • The Nazis invented autobahns and Volkswagens, but that doesn’t make everyone who drives a beetle on a freeway a Nazi.

  6. Somebody says:

    Well with any luck one of those guys will show up on a Project Veritas video. I could be wrong, but they seem like plants to me, they are too amused with themselves and don’t really seem to harbor the kind of anger a real Trump supporter has toward the media.

    • Lulu says:

      Plants. I agree they are there to stir shit but German terms are not very catchy in the US so just more shit thrown at the wall that didn’t stick.

  7. Venus says:

    Nazis spoke German — by the MSM’s logic, the entire German language is tainted.

    • Lulu says:

      Exactly. Explaining the polling is idiot work. They over sample their side of everything in an attempt to drive opinion. They have tried desperately to create a bandwagon affect. It hasn’t worked. Tough shit for them but they keep on trying and are now ridiculous.

  8. Lulu says:

    The more I read about the cyber ATTACK!!! the more hilarious it is. The most intelligent people who ever lived, Masters of the Universe of Silicon Valley, never anticipated or saw a cause and effect coming down the road. Instead of using their trillions to set up safeguards, etc (reminds me of stupid Hillary and her stupid server) they scooped up ALL of the money for themselves, spent not a dime on security it appears, encourage the wi-fi-ication of every damned thing, and got flatfooted by a bunch of poor, cleverer nerds (why do people think Russians and eastern Europeans and poor nerdy Bernie-bot kids are stupid?). Sticking the internet into everything to drive up the price of refrigerators so a dumbass can check in the grocery store to see if they have butter is more of the dumbing down of the already dumb. Like Peggy Noonan said I’m tired by being led and hectored by our inferiors (this includes Hillary!).

    • My toaster crashed.

      I’m gonna ask my son to see if he can reboot it.

      • Lulu says:

        My air conditioning guy tried to sell me a smart thermostat that we could set with our “smart” phones. I asked if he thought I was too lazy to walk down the hall and push the button. And besides we don’t have a “smart” phone. And those front door thingies that connect to smart phones so you can tell a burglar go away? If you are using that thing they know you aren’t home if you aren’t hollering through the door “I’m calling the cops asshole! Get off my porch!” followed by a shotgun-click sound. The stupid speaker do-dad needs to be from INSIDE the house and not from a not so-“smart” phone speaker announcing you are not at home or too lazy to walk to the front door.

    • votermom says:

      I’ve always said these smart gadgets are a hacker’s dream. Although I imagined them as ways into a home, didn’t think of them being used in DDOS attacks.

There used to be some dumbass in our neighborhood who would walk up our drive way to a point obscured by woods and smoke a joint in peace and privacy so he wouldn’t get in trouble at home probably. We thought it was funny but he wasn’t next to our house.

      • He was trying the door knob. He skedaddled when he saw the camera.

      • lateblum says:

        He moved in upstairs and now the entire “common area” hallway smells – make that REEKS – of some horrid “medical marijuana” shit every afternoon and night. There are some days that it starts in the early morning and doesn’t end until late at night. And because he calls it “medical” there’s nothing anyone can do. It makes me nauseous and the woman across the hall has coughing fits. The women who live on the floors above (I’m on the first floor) have to walk down 2 and 3 flights of stairs and smell from the weed when they get to work In the mornings. BTW it isn’t medical marijuana. He’s just a stoner who is friends with Billy (the bomber) Ayers. The HOA won’t touch this with a ten foot pole. They tell us that even though his use is illegal WE must talk to him if it is so disruptive to our lives.

    I don’t need an expression to know, or say, that the media is lying their Ass off every time they open their mouth. And I seriously doubt most Americans need one either, in English or in German.
    We can find lots of ways to say it. Americans tend to be creative that way.
    The BS press works for me.

    I love watching Stuart Varney on FBN. They just had a man who was reporting on the Wikileaks emails about John Podesta’sa reconnection with Russia between his leaving government work and joining the Clinton campaign. When he ended is on air time with Varney, he said, “It just keeps coming, doesn’t it?”. Mike Huckabee is on next.

    • lateblum says:

      I remember reading about this murder when it happened. I believe there might be political pressure on Mr Ostroy to write what he did. Why else write this now? I also believe that he unwittingly supported the notion that it was because his wife’s killer was here illegally that she was murdered. He writes:

      “On Nov. 1, 2006, I found my wife, Adrienne Shelly, dead in her West Village office. Adrienne, an actor and filmmaker, had been brutally murdered by a 19-year-old undocumented Ecuadorean construction worker; he later said they were having an argument and, fearing she would report him and have him deported, he killed her and staged her death so it would appear to be a suicide.”

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Because he paid to have her…… removed?
      Why else would someone put more value on the criminals life than his wife’s?
      This is not the same as forgiveness – this is basically saying murder is ok.

And as in the dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every Knack being by Practice capable of Improvement.”

      Sad to see more jobs lost in Atlantic City. When I was a kid Atlantic City was a great place to vacation. The Casinos came in and promised a lot of things that never happened. They only made the boardwalk the place to be and the rest of the city like a slum. There were some good years and everybody was making money, but then it went bust. Trump made a lot of money but it went to NYC not Atlantic City. His actions in Atlantic City hurt a lot of hard working people. He can say it is just business all he wants but he is just bad pay.

    • Somebody says:

      Quite frankly I don’t care if she’s had lesbian trysts. I care about how corrupt she is.

      Conversely I don’t give two shits about Trump’s smack talk, he was speaking about starlets and hangers on……groupies that will screw anybody even remotely famous. You know those types of women and so do I. As for his accusers, don’t believe them either especially the ones aligned with Gloria Allred. I really hope he sue the living shit out of Allred to the point she’s sleeping in the streets and I especially hope she loses her law license. She’s a legal troll.

      Ask yourself this question, think back over the past 30-40 years Trump has been in the public eye. Have you ever heard one whisper about sexual assault?? No, no you haven’t because he’s always had women hanging on him. Now think about Bill Clinton or many other such men there have been rumors and whispers around them for decades.

      Same goes for racism, decades and nobody ever accused Trump of being racist. In fact quite the contrary. Look back and Jessie and Al and lots of other AA singing Trump’s praises. Look at his actions in Palm Beach all those many years ago.

      All that being said what is real and what has been a part of Trump’s persona is his big ego and thin skin. Those issues have been around for decades and are well known. Conversely so is plenty of evidence of his generosity and also plenty of evidence going back to the 1980’s of his concern regarding trade and other economic issues. He’s lived his live mostly in the public eye, the good and the bad.
