November 19 – Miscreant

A mean, evil or unprincipled person. One who behaves criminally or viciously.

How can one be charged with writing about “miscreant” and not address our current political affairs?

Mean—mocking a person with disabilities, discriminating against people because of their race or ethnic background and supporting legislation that gives money to the wealthy and takes away from the working class.

Evil—giving white supremacists the benefit of doubt, while denouncing peaceful protestors.

Unprincipled—lying and exaggerating so egregiously to mislead the public into believing one is greater than one is.

Behaves criminally—advising football team owners to fire players who don’t conform to one’s wishes and circumventing the justice system for a buddy.

Behaves viciously—grabbing what one wants because one has money and power.

Synonyms: criminal, culprit, wrongdoer, malefactor, offender, villain, lawbreaker, evildoer, delinquent, hoodlum, reprobate; malfeasant.
