But it doesnâ€™t matter. The word â€œsmearâ€ has been debased by the left, just as â€œfascistâ€, â€œrationingâ€œ, and plenty of others. Their post-modernist, Red Queen, multiple truths, â€œI knew what I meant when I said itâ€ worldview makes that a perfectly legitimate tactic as far as they are concerned. The word â€œsmearâ€ now means â€œsaying something that makes a leftist look badâ€ regardless of whether that something is true.
Especially when the “smear” actually hoists the leftist on his own videotaped words.
