Dubious disclaimer

From Encyclopedia Dramatica

How to execute the non-verbal dubious disclaimer.

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...

Examples

Non-verbal disclaimers

The non-verbal motion of looking over both shoulders or holding your hand(s)over your mouth counts as a dubious disclaimer and also lends the appearance of security to whatever piece of inflammatory information is being passed.
