Want to know one of the best ways to see when a so-called intellectual is lying to you in their writing? Here’s how to do it. Read their writing and if it is full of Word Salad, then you know that they are lying to you. Over at Vox Day’s blog, there’s a post up from BYU magazine about how some BYU graduate SJW fake Mormon journalists are lamenting that the American people hate them and call them out on their lies.
Go over to BYU Magazine and have a look at the original article. What’s the first thing you notice about the article asking the question “Who’s killing journalism?” It’s incredibly hard to read. It has obscure historical references that most college graduates haven’t heard of. The article has tons of filler words. It has lots of hidden subjunctive clauses in the sentences that muddy the sentence. On top of that, the point of the article isn’t even clear. It’s full of Word Salad that leaves you confused.
Word Salad is jargon academics use in their papers to make their writing hard to understand, while giving you the feeling that you aren’t smart for not understanding their writing. When you read Word Salad, you are supposed to feel that the author is really smart because you can’t understand the point of what he’s writing.
For example here’s what the BYU Magazine really says: “There’s always been fake news. Journalists aren’t supposed to tell you the truth. They are supposed to tell the Truth; however they see it, whatever that means. People used to believe the media but now they don’t anymore, for reasons we can’t understand. For whatever reason, we don’t understand why regular Americans don’t like journalists very much and have the nerve to tell us how much they hate us. Americans should start believing journalists again because we are experts in telling Americans what they are supposed to believe.”
That’s really all this BYU Magazine says. Of course they packed the article with all kind of Word Salad to make them sound smart and you feel stupid because you didn’t understand all of the “nuance” in the article. Of course if the author just came out said his point upfront, the author would be laughed out of the room. This BYU Magazine article even uses quotes from SJW fake Mormons to try to give it more authority.
McKay Coppins is a SJW fake Mormon. He was the editor for Buzzfeed or the DailyBeast, or one of the other big click bait Cultural Marxist propaganda websites that helps create the never ending Cultural Marxist narrative. Now McKay Coppins is writing for a semi respectable leftist magazine, so the article treats him like a real authority instead of a click bait merchant. McKay Coppins was one of the SJW fake Mormons working to push homosexual acceptance on the Mormon community. I wonder why? (Just kidding, have a look at his face. Physiognomy is real. Don’t leave that guy alone with your kids.) Redgulls tweeted at McKay Coppins a couple of times, asking him why he was working to undermine the Prophet and the Apostles, but he blocked me.
The lesson of reading the BYU Magazine article on why people hate journalists is whenever a skilldul writer doesn’t want you to understand something; the writer will make it hard to understand. Whenever you see Word Salad, you must immediately know that the author wants you to feel stupid and feel like he is smarter than you. Never fall for Word Salad. Whenever you see Word Salad, dismiss it as nonsensical Cultural Marxist crap.
