A "Botched Joke" has occurred when progressives seek to forestall any opposition use of a democrat quoted reciting a conceit held commonly among progressives, though not among the general voting public, by a campaign of obfuscation and phony outrage.

The most obnoxious display of this occurred when Sen. John Kerry expressed the typical progressive view that the ranks of our country's military enlistees are comprised of uneducated poors who couldn't know better and are therefor themselves properly understood to be additional victims of "Bush's wars", saying:

"You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

Kerry and his supporters claimed that this was a "botched joke" which was intended to mock Pres. Bush. In service of this silly claim, they offered up a half-dozen alternative, "original" versions which added and rearranged words and punctuation. Progressives begged the question, "Why would Kerry commit political suicide by joking at the troops' expense?" when it is clear from the video of his comments that Kerry intended no humor whatsoever. As if to undermine their own false narrative, progressives simultaneously praised Kerry for displaying the political courage to tell the truth about America's "poverty draft".
It would seem that progressives are going to handle Obama's 'You didn't build that' remark by giving it the Botched Joke treatment.

house unamerican activities commission

an investigative body of the u.s. house of representatives.

best known for it's legitimate work in ferreting out the very real cancer of organized soviet infestation. for this, progressives speak of it in nasty terms, describing it's conduct as comprising a "witch hunt" against communists in influential positions. the characterization is only partly true. there were no such thing as witches, but there were soviet loyal and kgb-paid communists in high positions in government and public life.

but huac's original mission was a witch hunt, though progressives don't like to speak of it. huac was actually first convened ten years before the cold war even started. it was created to entertain a deranged conspiracy theory about wealthy businessmen raising a private army against fdr to overthrow the government and create a fascist regime. the conspiracy theory was based on the testimony of one dood.

ironically, huac was created by rep. samuel dickstein who, s we know beyond the shadow of a doubt thanks to documentation from the kgb archives, was on the soviet intelligence payroll.
huac may have redeemed itself by exposing the red manace, but it started out inventing some stupid brown scare out of some drunk's conspiracy theory.

a pejorative progressives use to dismiss the shame of their inaction in the face of communist aggression, imperialism and terrorism.

the correct term is red menace. it was the justified and legitimate organic anxiety of a nation facing a rising totalitarian threat from communism. communists were invading and annexing countries on the european continent, colonizing and overthrowing the governments in other parts of the globe, and building weapons in a bid to eliminate all global alternatives to the red communist system.

the first era of the red menace was in the 19-teens and twenties. this was a time when progressives loyal to the russian revolution were setting off bombs in u.s. cities and attempting to assasinate u.s. presidents.

the second era was spurred by the revelation that the u.s. state department had become ridden with soviet spies. this , in conjunction with overt soviet power maneuvers in the hemisphere caused americans to support greater vigilance from their leaders.
progressive: duh you're just a red-baiting mccarthyite nazi! don't you know that the red scare went out of style in the 50's?"

normal person: i guess "brown-baiting" is still "hip" or something.

1) an apocryphal character cited for the purpose of an argument of the form "Even this staunch republican agrees that all republicans rape babies. sometimes the argument takes the form of a hard news piece.

2) one of the popular forms taken by a "moby", a variety of troll which adopts the cultural identity of the opposing team for the purposes of either defamation by implication or "concern trolling".
genuine_republican says:
"i have enumerated misgivings about the policies of our standing president which are as follows..."

Staunch Republican 1776 says:
"YEA I HEAR YA BROTHER! THIS DIRTY N***ER MARXIST SHOULD BE ASSASINATED AN JEWS CONTROL THE CURRENCY."

faux-moderate (the authentic id of "staunch_republican1776") says:
"i have to say, genuine, there are problems with your criticisms which i haven't the time to point out here, but i wonder if you ever ask yourself why so many of your ideas so readily excite the passions of racist skinhead types like 'staunch_republican1776'?"

communism is a doctrine of slavery which literally reduces a person's value to the cost of their labor. the fact that most progressives believe that it is acceptable to kill to bring this system home is why most people perceived communism to be a red menace.

a rhetorical device by which progressives presume the authority to wholesale re-write the text of their opponents' speech in order to fit their narrative that people who don't think like them are, by definition, racist and bad.
"i have enumerated misgivings about the policies of our standing president which are as follows..."

you think i didn't see what you did there? 'standing' president? 'standing' like a lawn jockey, right? i suppose you're going to deny it, of course. no matter how obvious the dog whistle, your kind is cynical enough to deny it.

the act of exposing something true, but unpleasant or politically inconvenient about a progressive.

refers to the swiftboat veterans for truth. when john kerry attempted to capitalize on his brief service in vietnam, a group comprised of all but a handful of veterans who served in the same combat area of operations and mos came forward to underline what a bullshitter kerry was. among other things, they demonstrated that kerry didn't earn his combat medals, lied about christmas in cambodia, and seemingly only enlisted so he could turn directly around and participate in an effort to brand all veterans as war criminals.

the term has since been turned into a generic pejorative for any revelation about a public progressive which progressives can't dismiss on a factual basis. the idea is to name the "crime" of telling the truth about progressives on the same axiomatic level as "theft" or "rape". progressives are implicit totalitarians who don't like having their authority challenged.
"now they're trying to swiftboat bernie ward by publishing the chat transcript in which he talked about having his daughter blow his son in front of him."
