Dubious disclaimers are disclaimers that mean absolutely nothing when taken in context with what a person is saying. They are a sad consequence of PCism. They are largely used by racists before telling an off-colour joke, starting their own white supremacist website, or talking to the actual IRL subject of their conversation. These are also called 'hedges' by those whose heads are not securely implanted in their asses. Fuckheads...
