Conservative trickery. Do others use it too?

Does anyone else see the trend?

  • Compassionate conservative
  • Clean coal
  • Green growth
  • Moral majority
  • Free market

Take your biggest criticism and put the reverse in front. Without changing anything about yourself, you make yourself impervious to criticism. Only one thing: coal isn’t clean and growth isn’t green, no matter how much anyone says they are.

Liberals and other groups might use the technique. I haven’t noticed. If you know of examples, let me know. I’ll post so people know to guard against all trickery from all directions.
