Word of the Day

In a recent post I wrote that "The Christo-Republican cadres are here to found the new Reich, and they have the training, skills and discipline to do it."

This was quoted by a member of such with the lead-in—

... here is some lefty blogger's characterization of us PHCers [Patrick Henry College student] as communist cadres and Nazi Reich formers in relation to the [New Yorker] article in one smooth breath

I would never in my wildest moments characterize a PHCer as a "communist"—nor did I. Here is what cadre means in the context of my statement—


  1. A nucleus of trained personnel around which a larger organization can be built and trained: [example] a cadre of corporals who train recruits.
    1. A tightly knit group of zealots who are active in advancing the interests of a revolutionary party.
    2. A member of such a group.

One of the techniques of the Christo-Republican spin machine is to distort plain meaning à la 1984.
