Well, once again liberalism has out-done us in trying its best to render “The Onion’s” and OOTB’s political satire, mundane and believable.
Because they’ve insisted that our identity is racist at worst, and judgmental and insensitive at best, liberals have made our language (and culture) mean nothing.
When our language has no meaning, it can be molded to perform political tasks.
I’m really not sorry to see the phrase “War on Terror” being retired by the Pentagon; it’s always seemed like a complete misnomer. You don’t fight a war against a tactic, you fight against people with an ideology. This battle would have been much better described as the “War on Militant Islam,” but our government is too hobbled by political correctness to ever be that direct and truthful.
Suddenly, “undocumented malcontents” seems like a reasonable suggestion.
Here’s some more leftist attempts to destroy the fabric of our society, from the past week or so:
- Merriam Webster redefined “marriage” in their dictionaries, which at least they have the right to do.
- Dept of Homeland Security Chief, Janet Napolitano decided to rid our vernacular of, “terrorism” and replace it with, “man-caused disasters.”
Stop laughing. We’re still not kidding. And there’s more:
- The European Parliament has banned the terms ‘Miss’ and ‘Mrs’ in case they offend female MEPs. The politically correct rules also mean a ban on Continental titles, such as Madame and Mademoiselle, Frau and Fraulein and Senora and Senorita. Guidance issued in a new ‘Gender-Neutral Language’ pamphlet instead orders politicians to address female members by their full name only.
*This should come as no surprise since the California state senate passed a bill in 2006 which banned the words, “mom and dad” from school textbooks, so as not to “reflect adversely on anyone based on sexual orientation or actual or perceived gender.”
- We also have Harvard professors suggesting the need to “redefine merit because standardized testing is racist.”
Hey it may be the land of confusion but, at least the President isn’t a walking identity crisis in an empty suit who purposefully sends mixed messages to all comers so they can project their beliefs unto him.
No…he knows exactly who he is on the inside.
