On the manipulation of language

Thus when a Postmodern's opponent commits a generalization, for example in categorizing the behaviour of one small group of deranged terrorists together with all the other well-meaning, peace loving Muslims in naming urban Jihad, Islamic terrorism, this is considered "unfairly lumping all Muslims together".

If however, the boot is on the other foot and it is Postmoderns (Pomos, in Pomo) that are categorizing all white males as rapists, this is a perfectly acceptable.

This is also true when speaking of pro-lifers. The vast majority of pro-lifers are peaceful people who do not advocate violence, but the opposition never let the facts get in the way of a good strategy.
