We should overhaul language in general so that hurtful things simply cannot be said, and subversive ideas cannot be spread.

Imagine a world where hate is impossible to speak! It would be paradise, right?

Absolute control of language was a major part of “1984”, called Newspeak.

Bleached hair and bleached skin, similar to that new white black chick on The doctors.

I thought that blacks wanted their own true identity? So what's with their desire to look like whites?

I always call her "Beyotché", anyway. :)

I can't stand American pop singers. I'm not really a pop music fan, but K-Pop groups like Girls' Generation are a hundred times more entertaining and watchable than the garbage American performers are spewing these days.

I saw that commercial, and it occurred to me that these people demanding that we "ban the word" bossy were being VERY bossy themselves, demanding that I not use a word!

Why is it okay to judge “negative” words but not behavior?

Seems to be a certain character type that wants to eliminate words that truthfully describe obnoxious and/or destructive behavior. Demonize truthful words, then when that isn’t enough, vilify and destroy those who still dare speak the truth.

Must be a coincidence that she is one of Obama’s special friends.

"Light skinned blacks have long looked down upon darker skinned blacks in general. In fact, I believe that was a central theme of a Spike Lee movie.

Maybe this is one of those generational things, but I can not recall ever having called a woman, or girl, bossy. It is not a word that I associate with women at all.

And yet there is Condoleezza Rice joining in this stupidity right after some college profs blocked her from speaking. Talk about a disconnect. Her 1st amendment rights get muted & she wants a word banished. RINO’s are a problem..a big problem.

Thing I do not get is what they have for Michelle or Zero... like Harvard gives people a power rise or something. Ridiculous. Harvard is a glorified imp-pueriled ghetto of change with cry babies crying mothers of society into cry babies.

“All Is Fair in the Fog of Fake Outrage.” Nice phrase in the NYTimes. I’m outraged, however, that they unfairly attribute this to Republicans, not only in the story but in their amateurish cartoon of an outraged elephant.

Everyone knows the fake-outrage champions of the planet are the Democrats. This is the latest twist in the ceaseless campaign to reverse the field and accuse others of what they are best at themselves. Projection, I think Freud called it, but it is nastier than that. It’s a lie, and therefore steals people’s reality and muddies the national perception.

Why do they think Benjamin Carson warned against political correctness in his famous speech at the National Prayer Breakfast? It keeps people from saying what they think, and so is inimical to free speech. It is insidious in its own right, but now they have compounded their crime by accuse the other side of their own disgusting and dishonest habit.
