Word That Sounds Like English Racial Slur

If 2020’s rampage of stupidity couldn’t go any further, a story out of Los Angeles might just convince you the modern-left has literally ruined everything. University of Southern California Professor Greg Patton, in the process of teaching a class was discussing standard vocal patterns in different cultures. In explaining the Chinese pattern of using the word “that”, which translates into Chinese as “nega,” Patton said the word in quick succession which led to students questioning his use of the word. “Two things, one is you can… you have a lot of um or ers, and this is culturally specific so based on your native language,

First Chinese word: ni-hao - "hello" Second:: xi-xi - "thank you" Third: nega - "that" or "the, uh...". Repeated a lot because it is used like "uh" or "um". Hao means "good" but it gets shortened to ha and repeated a lot to mean "yeah,yeah,yeah" or "right,right,right" or "good,good,good". The teacher was making an excellent point. I guess the leftist antifa types can't allow that.

Absolutely insane. Facts no longer mean anything. Only the 'feelings' of some nutballs who are just looking for some reason to be angry.

So much for freedom of speech. Demonrats are attempting to destroy that right by hook or by crook. Mostly crook. The professor should sue.

So any variation of "negative" or "negate" is of the ;lexicon and the dictionary!

I work for a Chinese-American -owned company and we have a couple Chinese suppliers. So, I overhear conversations in Chinese every day. I hear “nega, nega” all the time. It sounds like an audible pause to me, similar to “like” or “um”, just from the cadence. It sounds like the speaker is searching for the word. ( I don’t speak Chinese). But it’s “nega” rhymes with Vega. Not even close to the N- word (which is vile). Some people are paranoid snowflakes, who wake up looking for something to be offended about. How can you possibly be happy living like that?

#1, you beat me to it. Several years ago a member of the DC city council was fired for using the word niggardly. The rest of the council (check out the demographics of DC) were too ignorant to know what it meant.

#8, the D.C. debacle, as I recall, dealt with an administrator for D.C. government, who was discussing the city budget. He called the budget mniggardly, meaning cheap, miserly, or something, and the City first fired him, but reinstated him when someone showed them a dictionary. A condition of his re-hiring, though, was that he had to undergo sensitivity training. My late best friend was an English professor at a Communit7yu College, and taught English. In a course on business communications, he required several business letters to be written, with instructions on format, length, and the like., Included in the instructions was a statement that the student had to follow the instructions 'slavishly.' His black students complained, of course, even when he explained what the definition of slavishly was.(follow closely, carefully, as written.)

One of the fascinating facts to emerge from watching the back-to-back conventions was that Republicans have overtaken Democrats when it comes to visual presentation. Despite their lock on Hollywood actors, the Democrats don’t seem to have attracted much of the creative talent. The Democrat convention looked like a meeting of a high school communist club, while the Republican convention was a joyous, polished, light-filled vision of America’s wonderful future. The difference in talent when it comes to creating videos and events applies to less spectacular events as well. When I look at my Facebook feed, which is heavily populated with Democrat friends from my travels through life,

Based on the arrest photos of apprehended Antifa rioters, the impression is out there that the group is little more than a bunch of extremist fringe crazies. Sadly, it's not so. Report after report shows that Antifa is highly organized, in its rioting, its killing, and its press coverage. It's shocking, really. This account from SurvivalBlog, by J.D., someone who went to several of Antifa's riots, describes all the security that Antifa and Revolutionary Communist Party (RevCom, or RCP) coevals put into their operations. Based on his account, Antifa and RCP appear to be the same thing: The first one I attended was on the University of Michigan campus.

Democrats openly say that, if Trump is reelected, they are going to redouble their four years of madness, with special emphasis on the last three months of open violence. Indeed, they’re already planning to destabilize the election and to contest it if Trump wins, in hopes of a violent coup. The latest leftist to say this is Bernie Sanders, who just opined that Trump would not accept defeat. It appears that the Democrat’s plans don’t account for is the fact that, if Trump wins the Electoral College, he holds all the cards -- although, their awareness of that fact could explain the recent attempt, via the defamatory The Atlantic article,
Politics will never get less evil unless good

Burke said evil triumphs when good men stay silent. Aristotle similarly said that when good people don't get involved in politics, they get government by bad people. That's what has happened here in America, why evil has spread like leprosy across the face of the land. And make no mistake: it is evil that's spreading. To grasp this we need look no farther than the corner Planned Parenthood charnel house. When a society legitimizes babies getting turned into body parts for sale to the highest bidder — that's evil. With notable exceptions (think Trump), the bad guys have taken over (think Deep State). Burke had it right.

I get the sense that rightward movement is occurring in the African American community. This is more than anecdotal. It’s not random. It is for good reason. At least since the ’60s, the Democrats have had a lock on the black vote, which they’ve nurtured and protected like leftists guard their copies of “The Communist Manifesto.” Their conquest was cynical in its inception and has grown more so through the years. You’ve probably read President Lyndon Johnson’s overtly racist remarks concerning his support for the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act — remarks that are in such poor taste I won’t repeat them here.

As he steps up his advocacy for his father's reelection, Donald Trump Jr. doesn’t just want Republicans to stop rolling over every time a Democrat attacks. He wants payback. “We’ve got to fight the same way,” he said in an interview. Be it presidential or street politics, Trump said that it is time that Republicans get dirty. “I’d love to be able to get along. I'd love to be able to settle our differences normally,” said the president’s top unelected surrogate and the author of a new book on Joe Biden, Liberal Privilege: Joe Biden and the Democrats' Defense of the Indefensible.

In 2016, Donald Trump promised to bring back manufacturing jobs to the United States. At the time, President Obama ridiculed the idea, saying, “What magic wand do you have?” Turns out Trump had a good one. In the first 30 months of the Trump Administration, U.S. manufacturers added 499,000 jobs, expanding by 4 percent. In the last 30 months of the Obama-Biden Administration, manufacturers added only 185,000 jobs, which equated to a mere 1.5 percent – a net difference of 314,000 jobs. Now Joe Biden is promising to bring back manufacturing jobs. Will anyone in the media ask him about his magic wand? I doubt it.

New York City restaurants have had enough. Even as restaurants across the state have reopened for limited indoor seating, the Big Apple remains limited to only patio dining. Now, as fall approaches and cool weather returns to the city, restaurateurs are demanding action from Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. A lawsuit filed last week in NYC lists Il Bacco Restaurant in Queens as the primary plaintiff in the suit that is seeking $2 billion in damages for their business and similarly affected businesses in NYC. The lawsuit seeks repayment from Cuomo, de Blasio, the Office of the Attorney General of New York, and the city itself.

Former Vice President Joe Biden raced to Wisconsin, where President Trump recently visited Kenosha which was engulfed by leftist rioters. He’s supposedly ahead of Trump in the Badger State. I doubt it. The Biden operation is acting like a scrambling mess trying to catch up to Trump and push back on the narrative laid out by the recent Republican National Convention, which unlike the Democratic event, mentioned the lawlessness that has infested Democrat-run cities. And yes, some Democrats and their allies in the media have quasi-endorsed the violence…until the polling showed voters are—shocker—not supportive of anarchy and Marxist revolution. That’s what this is now.

It's now Sep. 2020, and the feds are still uncovering voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election. No telling how long it will take to weed through all the illegal votes cast this November, especially if Democrats get their way on vote-by-mail. In an ongoing investigation by ICE's Homeland Security Investigations office in Raleigh, North Carolina, 19 more illegal aliens have been charged with illegally voting in the 2016 presidential election. The years-long investigation resulted in charges against 19 other foreign nationals back in Aug. 2018 for also voting illegally in 2016. According to an ICE press release, the illegal aliens violated U.S. election law

As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening. It started with the military brass quietly indicating that the troops should not follow a presidential order. They were bolstered by many former generals—including President Trump’s own first Secretary of Defense—who stated openly what the brass would only hint at. Then, as nationwide riots really got rolling in early June, the sitting Secretary of Defense

Throughout the two-minute ad, Nancy Pelosi is constantly referred to as “Nancy Antoinette,” a reference to the French queen Marie Antoinette, who has (though falsely) been characterized throughout history as a superficial elitist that cared little for the people. “Let them eat cake,” she apocryphally said. Interspersed throughout are video and audio clips of Pelosi advising people to wear masks

The Biden campaign promoted what is being called a “dangerous conspiracy theory” about a potential coronavirus vaccine on Saturday, suggesting that the vaccine may not be safe due to it being rushed for political reasons ahead of the November elections. Speaking to CNN’s Dana Bash, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the vice presidential running mate of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, claimed that Trump may muzzle scientific experts and that the president was acting out of desperation. “Do you trust that in the situation that we’re in now that public health experts and scientists will get the last word on the efficacy of a vaccine?” Bash asked.
