In the video, one of the witnesses calls this attempted mass murderer a “gentleman” and another woman called him “African American.”

The contortions the PC crowd goes through are amazing. I heard the “gentleman” comment too. I have a liberal colleague who advises students to call problems “challenges” rather than “problems.” With liberals or people who just aren’t thinking about issues, I try to use more forceful language that might plant a seed for them to ponder later. When talking with this same liberal friend, for example, I refer to the “government TAKEOVER of healthcare.” It’s exhausting trying to sift every word we utter through the PC filter, so I merely quit playing the game.

GAWD!!!

It is my pet peeve of all time..IDIOT journalists routinely call murderers, thieves and all variety of unsavories, ‘gentlemen’, in their auto-pilot brain dead “reporting”!!!!

EXAMPLE:

“Police say they pursued the ‘gentleman’ as he sped down I-95 after witnesses reported seeing him abduct the young girl, forcing her into his car....”

What more evidence do you need to prove that ~~** JOURNALISTS~~** are not some gifted class of thinkers, analysts, ‘get to the essence’ conveyers of objective facts??

They are mostly liberal mass communication grads fresh from brainwashing and besotted with their potential TV celebrity. ‘Thin’ thinkers if thinkers at all.

And yet these IDIOTS have the power via mass communication technology to influence the sleep walking public with their vacuous, biased, ill-informed and trendy crap.

God help us.
