The radical leftist onslaught against freedom and reality becomes more bizarre and shocking with each passing day.
As the world is plunged further into a seemingly endless pit of tyranny, leftists somehow find the time to henpeck everyday people over the most mundane of activities.
In fact, completely harmless words are now deemed a threat to the leftist utopia and must be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.
Here are four actual words leftists tried to ban!
1. BROWN BAG
Ever pack lunch in a brown paper bag? If so, you’re probably a racist or a bigot – at least that’s what the left wants you to think.
In 2013, a memo was sent out to city employees in Seattle, Washington that banned the words “brown bag” due to its “offensive nature.” Offensive how you ask? Well, according to Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights, brown bags were once used over 100 years ago to test if a Black American’s skin was too dark.
“The term ‘brown bag’ doesn’t bother everybody, but… there is a history behind the use of it,” Bronstein said.
Proving that some sanity was left in the city, Seattle residents called Bronstein’s crusade a complete waste of time.
Ever been blacklisted or used the term? Obviously you’re racist – and police in the UK agree.
According to the Daily Mail, police chiefs banned the word in 2012 over fears that radical authoritarian leftists would call them racist for using it.
Instead, Scotland Yard employees were told to use colors such as ‘red’ and ‘green’ so as to not offend the trendies. Of course, in due time, all colors will be racist.
“I am sure we can appreciate the sensitivity around the use of such terminology today so please ensure it is no longer used,” Security Services Chief Brian Douglas said at the time.
“Stop using the word bossy, now!” say ironic women not understanding irony.
In early 2013, Michelle Obama championed a campaign to ban the word “bossy,” arguing that the word was used to defame women.
Of course the effort was an utter failure, and leftists were temporarily forced to head back to the drawing board to plan their next attack on rational thought.
Back to Seattle already? Well, brown bags weren’t the only things found offensive. Friendly city employees also found the word “citizen” to be in bad taste since some people aren’t citizens.
Attempting not to scare away their illegal immigrant voting base, Seattle successfully banished the word from all government paperwork.
“Luckily, we’ve got options,” Bronstein said. “For ‘citizens,’ how about ‘residents?'”
