    Dead Asian communists

    In the movie? I believe he was addressing second generation American hoodlums. Because they were Asian, he called them all zipperheads regardless of their political views.

    Well I say "thinks". That would be giving her too much credit come to think on it...

    Yep. And the movie used the term correctly.

    On the other hand you want it to be about communism.

    No. Maybe the vocabulary police. Words have agreed upon meanings and it is good to follow those standards unless there is a compelling reason not to. You don't have a compelling reason to change zipperhead to be a political rather than a racial term. Confusion arises when people start creating new meanings for words.

    As for the thought police, the thought in your head may have been about communism, but that is the wrong use of the word and I am correcting you.


    I'd love to see you go to China or North Korea and call a group of people zipperheads.

    Here's another clue bird brain. 'Zipperhead' isn't a name directed at or associated with communists but is in fact a racial slur. That's akin to saying the "n" word is a slur against liberals. Get a grip.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    No. It's about using the correct terminology. You can criticize all you want. Just use words appropriately.

    Of course. I worship communism. Lenin

    It is correct as far as the term's use goes. That isn't to say I approve of using it though.

    Take it up with Flukeman. He wants to be a vocab policeman (Eccl 10:2). He said they got it right in the movie Gran Torino. Maybe he’ll clarify the legalities (Re 13:17).

    They did get it right in Gran Turino. The character was referring to Asians in a derogatory manner. Not that I expect you to be honest enough to admit you're ignorant of the facts but you can't bluster your way out of this one. (Not that you've ever succeeded in doing that anyway)
