“Just sayin’” is an assault on intelligent conversation. It is an expression that should be left in the gutter where it came from.

“Just sayin’…” is not gutter language. We generally refrain from using gutter language on 1389 Blog.

What the phrase means is this: “I am about to confront you with an observation that may make you or others extremely uncomfortable. It is up to you to deal with it or not.”

It came from the gutter, and belongs in the gutter. No matter how popular it may be, it is mindless. There are rules for any language, and tossing the rules in the trash (as Marx and his comrades well knew) is tossing THINKING in the trash. We think with LANGUAGE (words), and to a lesser extent, with pictures. All of our abstract thinking is done with language. People who cannot use language effectively cannot think effectively.

That is the whole point of Marx’s doctrine of deconstructionism – to render a population unable to engage in critical thinking. Strip them of their history, and strip them of their language (and morality, art, and a few other things), and you have a populace that is malleable, that can be led wherever the enlightened leadership chooses. You have sheep ready for the slaughter.

By embracing the dumbing down of the language, you are helping the Marxist agenda.

@ Mark v

Everything that opposes Communism and Marxism is not necessarily good. For example, Adolf Hitler opposed Communism and Karl Marx. He enforced strict rules for defining the country’s culture. While preserving the English language is important, there is a need for some flexibility and creativity. Those who cannot allow even a little room for this are known as “grammar Nazis.” At 1389 Blog, we refuse to be complete grammar Nazis.
