The ‘Speech Police’ Grows In Power

The headline: “Cardiff Metropolitan University Bans All “Politically Incorrect Words”

You ask, where or what is Cardiff? Well, it’s the capital of Wales, in the UK, and this is the university of that city.

We have heard that the UK and Europe is far ahead of the USA in insanity of political correctness, thought control, speech control, and anything else that is unnatural.

Mish Shedlock writes this:

Cardiff Metropolitan University is at the forefront of political correctness sensitivity. The University Bans Lecturers from Using any Sexist or Insensitive Words. The list of banned words is wider than you might think. Here are some examples: mankind, homosexual, housewife, manmade, and sportsmanship.

And please, try to avoid words like “mother” and “father” unless you can say “mother and father” together. Yes, the article states that.

Gee, is there an order for this? Yes, there is. It better be random. Always saying mother first could get you in trouble. The article did not say but the phrase “ladies and gentlemen” clearly has to go.

According to the guide, Mrs. and Miss are considered offensive. Clearly, it’s best to avoid gender-identifying terms altogether.

What happens when these culturally-trained “snowflakes” hit the real world outside of their safe-space university?

Hmm. Am I allowed to use the word “snowflake” like that? Apologies offered for my unsportspersonslike conduct.

Imagine, the parents of these school kids pay for the indoctrination of their children. This is not “education.”

The world is on its way to becoming a lunatic asylum. Normalcy is now forbidden, and insanity is the way of life. Safe spaces, free speech zones, snowflakes, giving college students a room with stuffed animals, crayons, and videos of puppy dogs to take away the pain of having their political candidate lose, forbidding guest speakers to speak, rioting to protest someone because years ago he made a small campaign contribution to the political campaign a small minority might object to…this is all getting to be the “new normal.”

Comics of years gone by, like Don Rickles, would be on food stamps now, or be in some dungeon wasting away after being tortured by the “righteous” left.

Should the sane minority just tolerate this or is it time to fight back. The best way is at the polls. Do not support anyone, at any level of government, school board, dog catcher, etc. who has even a smidgen of left wing sentiment.

Of course, you would only do this if you care about the First Amendment to the Constitution, and other rights we ordinary citizens used to have. I wonder, how many of us there are?
