Abstract

“Whore: Noun – prostitute; Verb – whored, whoring. … A whore is a person who is regarded as willing to do anything to get a particular thing … [to] debase oneself by doing something for unworthy motives, typically to make money.” (From one of the 540,00 Google listings)

I had no idea that there are 245 synonyms for whore, a few of which include vulgar, tart, floozy, streetwalker, hussy, tramp, trollop, strumpet, hooker, secret woman, courtesan, and, in this case, gold digger.

For speaking the truth, yet again, newly-elected Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has been vilified, threatened, accused of being an anti-Semite, labeled la enfent terrible by a media hungry and eager to pounce on and highlight tangential issues to the detriment of real issues – issues that affect serious domestic, foreign, and universal human matters.
