University Bans The Phrase “Trigger Warning” Because It Might Be… Triggering

Also bans ‘picnic’, ‘rule of thumb’ and ‘take a shot at it’ because they are ‘racist’ or ‘violent’… or something

An arts college in Waltham, MA has banned the use of words and phrases it deems to be ‘violent’ or ‘racist’, replacing them with bland alternatives in an effort to prevent anyone from being offended.

The Daily Mail reports that Brandeis University has “created an anti-violence resource called the Prevention, Advocacy & Resource Center which provides information and advice to students and staff.”

Among the phrases to have been banned are, ironically, ‘trigger warning’ which had to go because of its association to guns, along with ‘take a shot at it’ for the same reason.

Similarly, ‘take a stab at it’ and ‘killing it’ have been described as ‘oppressive language’ and replaced by ‘try’ and ‘great job’. “If someone is doing well, we don’t need to equate that to murder!” the college’s explanation reads.

The University also claims that the word ‘picnic’ is “often associated with lynchings of black people in the United States, during which white spectators were said to have watched while eating, referring to them as picnics or other terms involving racial slurs against black people.”

Picnic is derived from the French ‘pique-nique,’ which means bringing your own food or wine to a meal.

Nevertheless, the college has decided it’s racist and dangerous and suggests ‘outdoor eating’ as a replacement.

 ‘Rule of thumb’ is another phrase that the college has banned because they claim it derives from “an old British law allowing men to beat their wives with sticks no wider than their thumb.”

That isn’t true, but facts don’t matter when the woke mob is offended.

In addition to the ‘oppressive language’ category, the college has also compiled hit lists of ‘identity-based language,’ ‘language that doesn’t say what we mean,’ ‘culturally appropriative language’ and ‘person-first language.’

A disabled person should be referred to as ‘person with a disability’, and a homeless person must be called a ‘person experiencing housing insecurity’.

The report states that the university is encouraging students and faculty members to submit further ‘oppressive words’ to be considered for banning.

Many on social media immediately compared the university’s move to ‘Newspeak’ in Orwell’s 1984:

This policing of everyday language at universities is far from an isolated incident.

As we reported last week, Oxford University alumni have slammed attempts by the Student Union there to employ “sensitivity readers” to vet, edit and place trigger warnings (oops I mean ‘content notes’) on the institution’s oldest newspaper in order to resolve ‘problematic’ articles.

In addition, students at Manchester University have demanded that the word “black” when used as a negative expression such as the word “blackmail” should be banned because it is “divisive.”

This notion comes directly from race baiters like Ibram X. Kendi, who continually claim that anything with the word ‘black’ in it is racist against black people.

There are now ‘debates’ happening at universities where it is being suggested that using correct grammar is akin to white supremacy, and that ‘non standard’ language is seen as “linguistically, morally, and intellectually inferior” not because it is regularly grammatically incorrect, but because black people are using it (Many many white people also use grammatically incorrect language, but again, facts don’t matter).

recent study by leading education focused think tank Civitas, found that free speech at the world’s leading universities is being eroded at an alarming rate owing to the rise of “cancel culture”.

Universities are in danger of becoming breeding grounds for revisionist history based on extremist political movements made up of individuals who are obsessed with declaring everything racist.

PHEW! Snopes Declares That Biden Probably Didn’t Yell “My Butt’s Been Wiped”

It’s “unproven” whether Biden’s butt is clean or not

Following the bizarre gibbering nonsense that came out of Joe Biden’s reanimated mouth Sunday, debunking site Snopes has allocated its resources to investigating and concluding that the so called President of the United States probably did not yell “my butt’s been wiped” at a reporter.

Snopes, the reliable and definitely not agenda driven fact-checking website, declared Monday that “This is a genuine clip of Biden. However, it’s not clear what he’s saying in this video.”

“It seems that people are just hearing what they want to hear,” Snopes declared.

It continues, “If you encounter this video of Biden that is prefaced with a caption saying that the president just yelled “My butts been wiped,” you may be predisposed to hear “My butts been wiped” in this clip. But try listening to the clip again, this time considering that the president may have said “It must be right” or “It must be what?”

“While it seems highly improbable that he said “My butt’s been wiped,” we can’t say for sure what he said in this clip, so we are marking this claim as unproven,” Snopes concludes.

Well, just like Biden’s butt, that’s all cleaned up then.

The point is that the guy is yelling weird non-distinguishable stuff at reporters and clearly mentally failing on the world stage. Whether he’s specifically yelling about his butt being wiped or not is irrelevant.

German TV News Reporter Suspended After Video Shows Her Smearing Herself With Mud in Flood-Hit Town

Apparent effort by journalist to make herself look more authentic.

A German television news reporter was suspended after a video showed the journalist smearing herself with mud in an apparent attempt to look more authentic while reporting on devastating damage caused by flooding.

RTL presenter Susanna Ohlen was in the town of Bad Münstereife to ‘help out’ with flood recovery efforts, but the clip shows the reporter deliberately dirtying herself by running the dirt on her forehead and cheeks.

Another video shows Ohlen reporting live for RTL at the same location.

An RTL report initially claimed, “Numerous prominent helpers also lend a hand and actively support the local people. One of them is Susanna Ohlen.”

However, as soon as the video clip of Ohlen’s behavior emerged, the article was deleted from RTL’s website.

“Our reporter’s approach clearly contradicts journalistic principles and our own standards,” said RTL in response to the incident. “We therefore gave her a leave of absence on Monday after we heard about it.”

Sadiq Khan Says New Statue of Activist Who Beheaded White Colonizers in Front of Their Children Reflects London’s “Achievements and Diversity”

“He did sermons with the head of his opponents on a pike.”

London Mayor Sadiq Khan defended the impending placement of a statue of John Chilembwe, an anti-colonial activist who ordered the decapitation of William Livingstone in front of his children and then displayed his head on a pike, saying it served to “reflect London’s achievements and diversity.”

Yes, really.

Chilembwe was a Baptist pastor and educator who became a militant resistance fighter who railed against the treatment of Africans working in agriculture on European-owned plantations in Malawi in the early 1900’s.

Chilembwe led a violent revolt against the Bruce estates, which culminated in William Jervis Livingstone and other European colonizers being decapitated on his orders.

In 1915, Livingstone was beheaded in front of his own children and Chilembwe subsequently displayed his impaled head on a spike during a church service.

In recognition of his struggle, a bronze statue of Chilembwe is being installed in London’s historic Trafalgar Square, which one website describes as “an act of resilience and revival for an aware British society that is experiencing how centuries of slavery perpetuated by Europeans has hindered African society.”

“The Chilembwe statue will help bystanders and British citizens reflect on some of the historical grievances that took place so that the social betterment of a western country doesn’t harm another community or race of people,” reports Travel Noire.

When challenged on his decision to green light the statue, even as a ‘woke’ statue commission works to remove sculptures of historical European figures, London Mayor Sadiq Kahn said the statue “reflect(s) London’s achievements and diversity.”

Shaun Bailey (who is black) told Khan, “this is a man who sanctioned the murder of people… he did sermons with the head of his opponents on a pike.”

However, Khan answered that unlike in the case of “colonizers” and other statues he is seeking to topple, the Chilembwe statue is “art” therefore it should be erected.

“I think art has an important role in stimulating conversation,” said Khan. “I also think we should challenge different perspectives when it comes to history. History is complicated and it is always worth getting a different perspective.”

Gee, I wonder where all this is heading?
