Political Correctness: The War On Free Speech

From demonizing the word “boy” or “girl”, to claiming nearly every English word is “racist” – the message being sent by social justice warriors is clear: You have no right to free speech, because someone, somewhere, will find find it offensive.  

Politically correct thought police have struck again, in their latest attempt to stifle free speech, the word “American”, among others, was criticized as “offensive” by the University of New Hampshire. 

The full list of truly hateful words included “American,” “obese,” “normal,” “mothering,” “fathering,” “homosexual,” “illegal alien,” and “senior citizens,” which were all deemed offensive by the educational institute, according to their “Bias-Free Language Guide” posted on their official website.

On the word “American” – the University’s politically correct guide book claimed it “assumes the U.S. is the only country inside [the continents of North and South America].”

Other banned words with their respective euphemism in brackets:

-“Caucasian” (use “European American”)

-“Mothering” and “fathering” (offensive to trans genders, use “parenting”)

-“Homosexual” (use “gay” or “lesbian”)

-“Obese” or “overweight” (use “people of size”)

Republican State Senator Jeb Bradley took issue with the university guide, and vowed to take it into consideration next time lawmakers decided how much money to give the institute. “Implying the word ‘American’ is not appropriate to use on campus is un-American to say the least,” he said. “Will UNH next propose to change our Live Free or Die motto to Live Free but Upset No-One?”.  (source)

Wait, there’s more.

The University of Wisconsin website published a legitimate, 100% real list of things they believe are racist.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following is absolutely not fabricated or a joke:

– Asking someone where they are from or where they were born.

– Telling someone they speak good English.

– Telling someone that you have several black friends.

– Saying that you’re not a racist.

– Complimenting an Asian person by telling them they are very articulate.

– Asking an Asian person for help with science or math.

– Uttering the phrase “There is only one race, the human race.”

– Saying that you think America is a melting pot and that when you look at someone you don’t see race.

– Believing that the most qualified person, regardless of race, should get the job.

– Thinking that every person, regardless of race, can succeed in society if they work hard enough.

– Telling a black person who is being too loud to be quiet.

– Telling an Asian or Latino person who is too quiet to speak up.

– Mistaking a person of color for a staff member when you’re in a store.

– Calling something “gay”.

– Doing an impression of someone’s dialect or accent.

The charts below illustrate the full list of “offensive” words or phrases, which the University teaches its faculty members to avoid:

From here.

As if attacking our 1st amendment rights isn’t enough, the politically correct brigade are now trying to socially engineer children to eliminate “gender stereotypes”, by banning the word “boy” or “girl” in classrooms. 

A back to school guide published by the Human Rights Campaign, was designed exclusively to make classrooms more “gender inclusive”.  Because the words “boy and girl” are noninclusive to the minority of children born with gender identity disorder.

The guide says, “Asking students to identify as male or female on paperwork is also vehemently discouraged, consider adding a third write-in option for those who have non-binary gender identities.”

Teachers are being instructed to explain the concept of same-sex parents to children.  The guide also advises teachers to encourage boys to take part in girls’ dance lessons, or other typically gender exclusive activities.

So, lets take a minute to breathe and allow this to sink in.

Instead of uniting as a society to fight against the corrupt Washington machine, The Federal Reserve, career politicians, civil asset forfeiture, the war on drugs, the corruption of the FDA, GMOs poisoning the food, unconstitutional trade agreements, mandatory vaccinations, federal government overreach, nationwide unaffordable healthcare, or police brutality – young adults of America (a demographic I belong to) are more concerned with eradicating free speech and, consequently – the first amendment.

As opposed to wasting time crying about words, why don’t we focus on issues that matter? Why don’t we spread the word on how to survive through the inevitable economic collapse? How about we disseminate information on freedom, the constitution, and how to defend our civil rights as individuals? Why don’t we help people understand how they can contribute towards exposing government hypocrisy while taking our country back from robber barons in the process?

Perpetually offended, totalitarian, politically correct thought police have stifled progression for young people in our country. Students are more interested in banning words, refuting basic human biology, and eradicating free speech as opposed to spreading a message of liberty.
