I hear this one a lot– The word “fact” being used interchangeably with “wild assertion” or “opinion” etc. It’s become quite common. I would add it to my “Left Speak” dictionary except that it’s being used this way by people who should know better. Maybe it’s one of the rare Left Speak redefinitions, or retardations, that have actually succeeded in that it’s been widely adopted.
“I disagree with the fact that…” is saying you disagree with something while acknowledging it as fact, which is simply another way of saying you’re crazy.
This might be the entry; Fact: Wild assertion or lie. Example: “I disagree with your facts.”
No matter how the entry is worded, it doesn’t work, mostly because the “facts” the communist is disagreeing with are often facts in the original meaning of the word. Maybe I should let it lie. The leftist is saying he’s insane, so that works out OK so long as the rest of us know the definition of “fact”.
The problem, as usual in Left Speak, is that it becomes impossible to impart knowledge from one generation or era to another. Many young people today, and some not so young, upon reading that this or that is a fact, will take it to mean that it is an opinion. The example I like to use is; “Upon finishing the meal, my family and I had much gay intercourse over the dinner table.” In the 19th century, that would be universally taken to mean we all engaged in cheerful conversation. Today it would be taken quite differently. When the language breaks down, there is no history. That’s why I try to avoid using “regulated” when I mean “restricted”, for example. They’re not interchangeable, any more than facts are with wishes or opinions.
