Don’t Do the Crime if You Can’t Do the…errrr…Name October 31, 2015Posted by geoff in News.
One of the most annoying things about the Left is their habit of changing the meaning of words to suit them and banning the use of words that offend them. “Gender,” for instance. We all pretty much understood gender to mean them’s with parts and them’s without, but over the past two decades the word has come to mean something much different to liberals.
Or take “illegal immigrants.” Pretty straightforward, yes? Or “handicapped.” Or in the case of one ex-president, “is.”
Today the word they’re trying to change is “criminal“:
Is it wrong to call someone who steals a “criminal”?
In the site’s Crime and Safety area, where residents share strategies for fighting crime, Malkia Cyril asks her Noe Valley neighbors to stop using the label because it shows lack of empathy and understanding.
Cyril suggested that instead of calling the thief who took the bicycle from your garage a criminal, you should be more respectful and call him or her “the person who stole my bicycle.”
“I [suggest] that people who commit property crimes are human and deserved to be referred to in terms that acknowledge that,” Cyril, who’s the executive director of the Center for Media Justice in Oakland, writes in the thread.
The mind boggles. It’s fast getting to the point where communication between the two ends of the political spectrum will be impossible.
