Another Word For Euphemism

Joe Biden has started doing press briefing about the policies he intends to implement in his Presidency. And every time I hear him speak, I have a greater understanding of why certain people like Donald Trump so much. Right or wrong; good, bad or indifferent, Trump put it out there. It was refreshing but also a shock to the system at times to hear a politician speak so plainly, so bluntly. You may not have liked it or agreed with what he was saying, but you always knew where you stood with Donald Trump. And if you stood in America, he was on your side.

Biden speaks in soft soothing tones lulling the listener to sleep as he spews his euphemism which disguise what he really intends to do. If you don’t know, the word euphemism is actually a euphemism for a lie. A euphemism sounds nice and pleasing, but it usually is not, at least not for the average citizen.

There is an inverse relationship between levels of tone and levels of bad in the way certain politicians speak. The more soothing and calmer the tone, the worse what it is they are saying. If what these politicians were saying was actually good for the people, they wouldn’t need to use euphemisms and temper their tones.

Biden spoke about forming an “international coalition” on foreign policy. If you don’t know, an “international coalition” is a euphemism for allowing the rest of the world to compromise American sovereignty and put American interests secondary to their own interests. In other words, allow other countries to rip-off America and its people.

Here is a list of the euphemisms you will hear from this new administration over the next four years and their meanings, so you can follow along:
