47. NO to normalization and adoption of Republican morality. BAD.

If you look at definitions of smear, you'll see the word means something bad that immoral people do. People of honor and integrity do NOT smear. Biden and Pelosi as examples do not smear.

Smear: damage the reputation of (someone) by false accusations; slander.

Smear: SULLY, BESMIRCH specifically : to vilify especially by secretly and maliciously spreading grave charges and imputations

Smear: to publicly accuse someone of something unpleasant, unreasonable, or unlikely to be true in order to harm their reputation.

Smear: to attack someones reputation with false information, to defame someone

SYNONYMS for smear are abundant but include such things as blacken, malign, backstab, betray.
ANTONYMS include clean, purify, honor, laud.

Etcetera, etcetera. For techniques of smearing, check Republican training manuals. As constant, long-time targets, our party leaders are intensely familiar with them all, but don't copy.
