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.

He’s right.

Russian President Vladimir Putin blasted the west as “completely insane” for allowing children to be taught there is no biological sex.

During a speech at the Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Putin said the woke crusade against traditional gender roles was “subverting human nature.”

Word “Spooky” Banned by National Theatre Over Absurd Claim It’s Racist

Language police claim another scalp.

Published

on

The National Theatre of Scotland has banned the word “spooky” over its “racial connotations” despite nobody complaining and despite there being no record of it ever being used as a racial slur in the United Kingdom.

Yes, really.

“A source at the Scottish theatre told the Daily Record that no one has complained about the term “spooky” but they were concerned the word could become problematic in the future,” reports RT.

So based on the prospect that somebody, somewhere, might be offended in the future by a completely non-controversial word, it has to be banned.

Apparently, the word “spooky” may have been used in America 80 years ago during World War II to refer to black pilots, meaning it must be expunged from our consciousness for eternity.

The reason for the elimination of the word becomes clear when we learn it happened as a result of “a lot of training and meetings since the [Black Lives Matter] movement” about how “[National Theatre Scotland] should change.”

In other words, the social engineering brainwashing struggle sessions have claimed another victim, this time a prosaic word.

The theatre said it will “always interrogate language choices” for “historically oppressive connotations” in order to satiate the mere threat of the baying thought police mob.

There was some backlash to the announcement, although since these institutions never listen to it, and always default to what a minority of unhinged extremists wants, it’s always rather pointless.

Professor Sir Geoff Palmer said he’d never heard of “spooky” being used as a racial slur, adding that the theatre was “doing more harm than good.”

“Does anyone actually want this? Is it just high up white people doing what they think is right without actually trying to learn and understand where the problems actually are?” asked a Twitter respondent.

“Can anyone find a single instance of “spooky” being used as a racial slur in the UK since, say, 1960?” asked another person.

“It really is a sickness now,” commented another.

Remember when they said ‘political correctness is just being nice to people’?

Oh, how far we’ve descended.

Video: Joe Rogan Applauds Tucker Carlson For Having Conversations With Leftists… And It Makes Leftists Angry

And now, praising Joe Rogan is fascist because Joe Rogan praised Tucker Carlson, who is totally a Nazi

Joe Rogan continued to annoy people who don’t like debate, questions or nuanced conversation Wednesday by praising Tucker Carlson for engaging in all of the above.

During a conversation with guest Alex Berenson, who has also angered leftists by merely asking questions about vaccines, the topic turned to Carlson.

When Berenson compared Rogan and Carlson, the former joked that he may not like where the conversation was heading.

“We’ll also talk to anybody,” Rogan clarified, adding “Tucker has a lot of left-wing people on and he doesn’t disparage them or criticize them or mock them.”

He continued “I think his discussions that he has on his show are some of the most nuanced in that he is willing to have conversations with anybody.”

“He’ll talk about all kinds of things, and I think that’s very important in this time that you have people like him,” Rogan added.

Cue a collective meltdown of disturbed leftists to prove Rogan’s exact point once again:

This proves… something apparently:

Yep, it definitely proves… something or other:

And now, praising Joe Rogan is fascist because Joe Rogan praised Tucker Carlson, who is totally a Nazi:
