I learned a new phrase today in a tweet. 'Covid 19 Shaming'
It is when unmasked attendees to a Trump rally are critisized by leftist protestors for transmitting a contagious pandemic.

Whatever that is, BWM, I agree.

"Rethink the Police", which seems to already happening via legislation in some localities, might work.

The phrase that trump would likely use if he could is "Don't Throw Out the Rubber Hoses".

With regard to some significations, approved terminology, and the like:

While there may be some connection between the Scots "carnaptious" (various spellings and indeed pronunciations) and the North American "conniptions", the two words are not synonyms. The American word seems to provide a humorous way of saying "he must have had a fit", though perhaps that expression is now discountenanced because of associations with symptoms of various diseases; how about, "he must have had kittens", "he nearly had a canary", both of which are nonsensical but widely understood and, as far as I can see, do not allow anyone to seize the opportunity to claim that they find the terms offensive.

The Scots word, "curnaptious" (yes, there are various pronunciations) conveys quite a different meaning, though it's possible to suggest a connection with or influence upon the American word. For a start, it's an adjective, as Backwoodsman's post of 16th June, 07.19 AM, shows. A person not just disposed to argue, but in a constant state of irritation, sudden and quick in quarrelling, girnan like a crabbit wee dug and aye barin' the teeth at ye like a Celebrity wi' a flick tae brag, could appropriately be described as "curnaptious", but he might just hanch at ye, more because it's his nature than to suggest an etymology.

On another tack, while the term "Native American" might have been well intentioned, it's not surprising that there's not anything like agreement on its adoption; why should people who can trace their traditions back for thousands of years consent to accepting the name of some comparatively recent Italian explorer? In the 1960s, a term I know to have been used among some tribes was simply, "The Red Man", though I think the current position is to favour "First Nations".

ABCD.

From Donnel's original post:
"I learned a new phrase today in a tweet. 'Covid 19 Shaming'
It is when unmasked attendees to a Trump rally are critisized by leftist protestors for transmitting a contagious pandemic."

Is it only called 'Covid 19 shaming' when the criticism is made by leftist protestors?
What do we call it when the criticism is made by ordinary citizens who have no political leaning, left or right, but are just concerned about the health and safety of their fellow humans?

I've seen right wingers with signs that say 'Get your politics off my face'. Also from the right is covid shaming and face shaming.
This lunacy obviously belongs to Trump and his $ priority.

Still a mask is a pathetic contraceptive against virus transmission but it is the little we have in this time of no immunity.

ABCD, in Canada the preferred usage for indigenous citizens is First Nations and Inuit.

Over the years, I have observed the evolution of terms from Indian, through Native and Aboriginal (note capitalization), and First Nations is the only one widely enough accepted by the relevant people to be used for political purposes.

Take a look at the Assembly of First Nations website to see what I mean.

'Don't believe in Polls' Fox news says it doesn't believe in polls.
There are more things they don't believe such as : The Constitution, truth and the American diversity.
They do believe in urging viewers to not believe their lying eyes and ears EXCEPT for FOX News and President Trump.

"Shotgun blasts to the face."
This phrase is used to describe decisions of the Supreme court by our Presidential tweeter. Could the rhetoric be more violent and disgusting? Probably, Such as: Whale harpoon to the symgmoid, Meat hooks through the mouths of journalists, Black 'veal' on the barbie, Crock pot Jew stew, Makin fantastic democratic catholic cephalic juice with the 2nd ammendment. Nope I guess I can't. Trump has more experience with the grotesque threatening of enemies of the people like journalists, blacks, jews and catholics.

Weeeeeeellllllll

The Scots & Picts would argue on that one. And doesn't anyone love the Bell Beaker Folk? And as for Neanderthals we Brits are all a bit Neadnerthal. Say 2%.

It is a very curious question that I saw posed, But the analogy was that of mules, the union of donkey and horse produces infertile males 90% of the time, so was the demise of Neanderthals accelerated by such a cross-breeding?

2% of me thinks so!

Setting aside the political aspects, a great place to catch up on new slang is YouTube. (Scan the titles.) And not just slang, but language trends in general. "Massive" has replaced "awesome," for example.

Some examples:

Karen
karma
owned
lost it
stoned (old slang, I know)

How about this title: Karma: 4 Catfish who got catfished themselves. (I have no idea what it's about, although catfish don't seem to be involved.)

The new Bureau of Infernal Affairs is deep swamped busy coordinating the States that are eliminating 95% of polling places and cutting back on absentee voting. This is on top of maximizing Corona transmissions with strategies like Reopen America and 'Kiss a stranger week'.

Shade: The word "shade" can be used as itself to refer to a situation where someone illustrated sneaky actions toward someone or something. On the other end, the person who has done the sneaky action has participated in the verb form of shade, which is to "throw shade."

Vivocentrists: people who think only the living should vote.
The current administration has divided America by: Gender, Color, Religion, Partisanship, Allies of America, Friendly Dictatorships, firing the competant government servants and replacing with loyal idiots until there is now only one division left. That would be dividing the living and the dead.

I've noticed that beyond words are the new gestures.
Among the Trump cultists there is a gesture of pulling your mask down
