Political correctness gone mad: University of NH declares “American” to be offensive, along with every other English adjective

  •  political correctness theory running amok, you need look no further than America’s  university system.we have reached new levels of absurditythe University of New Hampshire.In late July, news reports surfaced regarding a “Bias-Free Language Guide” posted on the UNH website. The online guide consisted of recommendations to avoid using “problematic” terms, such as “American,” “illegal aliens” and “senior citizen”. These are just a few examples
  • Words you can’t use anymore
  • American: This is problematic because it “assumes the U.S. is the only country inside [the continents of North and South America].The guide recommends using the less offensive terms “U.S. citizen” or “Resident of the U.S.”
  • Healthy: This word is problematic because it is biased against those whom we used to call “handicapped” (but you shouldn’t use “handicapped” anymore, either – the new, preferred term is “person who is wheelchair mobile”). Instead of healthy, we should now say “non-disabled.”
  • Poor: It is no longer PC to call someone “poor.” Instead, we should adopt the phrase “person who lacks advantages that others have” or “low economic status related to a person’s education, occupation and income.

Police State

Mile Markers On The Road To Fascism

Submitted by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”—Martin Luther King Jr.

  • There’s an ill will blowing across the country. The economy is tanking. The people are directionless, and politics provides no answer. And like former regimes, the militarized police have stepped up to provide a façade of law and order manifested by an overt violence against the citizenry.
  • It’s gotten so bad that you don’t even have to be suspected of possessing drugs to be subjected to a strip search.
  • In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Florence v. Burlison, any person who is arrested and processed at a jail house, regardless of the severity of his or her offense (i.e., they can be guilty of nothing more than a minor traffic offense), can be subjected to a strip search by police or jail officials without reasonable suspicion that the arrestee is carrying a weapon or contraband.
  • Examples of minor infractions which have resulted in strip searches include: individuals arrested for driving with a noisy muffler, driving with an inoperable headlight, failing to use a turn signal, riding a bicycle without an audible bell, making an improper left turn, engaging in an antiwar demonstration. 
  • It must be remembered that the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was intended to prevent government agents from searching an individual’s person or property without a warrant and probable cause (evidence that some kind of criminal activity was afoot). While the literal purpose of the amendment is to protect our property and our bodies from unwarranted government intrusion, the moral intention behind it is to protect our human dignity.
  • Indeed, not only are we developing a new citizenry incapable of thinking for themselves, we’re also instilling in them a complete and utter reliance on the government and its corporate partners to do everything for them—tell them what to eat, what to wear, how to think, what to believe, how long to sleep, who to vote for, whom to associate with, and on and on.
