Subject: Is "conservative" a slander word?
In response to my post about the use of "that word" in KNoxville, Roger
Vanderveen asked whether I use it [the word "conservative"] "in general
to slander conservatives." ?!? I find it astonishing that one might be
taken to be "slandering" conservatives by calling them conservatives. Can
one slander someone by calling by the label that rightfully belongs to
them? Or has the word "conservative" become non-PC without my noticing that
that has happened?
