“Pro-Choice” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

“Pro-choice” is a hell of a euphemism to describe being in favor of people choosing to kill their own offspring. But another term is considered more effective at promoting the media’s agenda. Consquently,

The Associated Press issued new guidelines for the topic of abortion Monday. The writing stylebook says to now “use the modifiers anti-abortion or abortion-rights; don’t use pro-life, pro-choice or pro-abortion unless they are in quotes or proper names. Avoid abortionist, which connotes a person who performs clandestine abortions.”

News outlets across the spectrum use the AP stylebook. But the Daily Signal will ignore this Newspeak Dictionary update. Here’s why:

Replacing the term “pro-choice” and “pro-abortion” with “abortion-rights” inaccurately implies that women have a right to end the life of the child growing in their womb. The Declaration of Independence speaks of a right to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,” but neither the Declaration nor the Constitution provides a right to end a pregnancy through elective abortion.

This was confirmed by the Dobbs decision, infuriating pro-abortion progressives, who assert that the Constitution says whatever they want it to say.

The purpose of the liberal media establishment is to fabricate and reinforce a narrative that empowers the Democratic Party. Conditioning people to see abortion as a right rather than a crime supports this narrative. It does not reflect reality.

Word “Brownie” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

As we work toward utopia, the Newspeak Dictionary grows ever thinner, with the eventual objective of reducing human language to inarticulate grunts so that no one can say anything offensive. Canada leads the way by abolishing the term “Brownie.”

Background on Canadian Brownies:

Girl Guides of Canada is a founding member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and was founded in 1910. The Brownie is a branch of Girl Guides that teaches outdoor safety and other life skills to girls ages 7-8.

Jill Zelmanovits, CEO of Girl Guides of Canada, explains why Brownies must no longer be called “Brownies”:

“Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion at Girl Guides calls on us to listen to the lived experiences of racialized girls and take action to safeguard these commitments.”

Zelmanovits says that calling Brownies “Brownies” has “caused them personal harm.”

You almost have to admire the creativity of moonbats who find evidence in support of the Cultural Marxist narrative no matter how obvious it is that no such evidence exists.

As Robert Conquest observed, any organization that is not explicitly right-wing soon becomes left-wing. The Girl Guides are no exception. This is not the first time they have made fools of themselves with their obsequious virtue signaling:

Girl Guides has previously taken other steps leaders felt allowed for an inclusive environment, including accepting transgender girls into the organization.

“Transgender girls” by definition are not girls. How can they call themselves “Girl Guides” if they do not even know what a girl is?

No doubt calling a flat bar of chocolate cake a “brownie” is also racist, especially since brownies have been associated with drug use.

However, calling little boys “Brownies” might be excused, so long as the intent is to demasculinize them in accordance with the liberal agenda.

Word “Globalist” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

According to postmodern philosophy, objective reality is either nonexistent or irrelevant; all that matters is the artificial world we create with words. Consequently, leftists believe that ultimate power can be achieved through control of language. This is why updates to the Newspeak Dictionary come fast and furious. It is why you can tell that you have found a soft spot in leftist defenses when they react to certain words as if you had poked a raw nerve. Use the word “depravity” in a discussion with liberals about the LGBT agenda and you may see fireworks. The word “globalist” so betrays their agenda that they have resorted to playing the anti-Semitism card:

Following what many, such as Brexit leader Nigel [Farage], have described as a “globalist coup” to install former Goldman Sachs banker and World Economic Forum (WEF) acolyte Rishi Sunak as prime minister, left-wing figures have attempted to make the very term “globalist” an off-limits slur, claiming that it is antisemitic.

I didn’t realize Sunak is Jewish. He threw me off by taking his parliamentary oath of office on the Bhagavad Gita.

Acknowledgment that power-hungry supranational cabals like the World Economic Forum are globalist is allegedly “a common antisemitic trope based on conspiracy theories about international Jewish power,” according to professional offended Jewish person Marie van der Zyl.

The linguistic dispute came to a head on Sunday, when a caller to the LBC radio station echoed Mr Farage’s sentiments in describing Sunak as a “globalist” who “doesn’t seem to love England”.

Delete the word “globalist” from your copy of the Newspeak Dictionary at once, and remember that if you utter it, you are literally a Nazi.

What Students Are Taught “Fascism” Means

We know what fascism means according to the dictionary. Basically, it is a form of militant socialism similar to liberalism, but without the self-loathing. But that’s not how kids are being taught to define it:

A teacher from Madison High School in San Diego claimed fascists are synonymous with the “modern-day Republican Party” and “white, Christian, heterosexuals,” according to a student at the school. Speaking on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retaliation, the high school student detailed the teacher’s unhinged definition of a “fascist.”

Impressionable kids walked into class September 1 to see written on the board,

As it is currently constituted, the Republican party is now a fascist organization that no longer fits the category of a conventional Democratic party.

Sounds like the Dark Brandon speech really struck home among educators.

But the teacher didn’t stop there. He continued with his radical left-wing indoctrination by listing whites, Christians, and heterosexuals as groups that are “fascist.”

If you are white, you are fascist. If you are a Christian, you are fascist. If you are not a sexual deviant, you are fascist. To sum up, if moonbats hate you because of where you get pigeonholed by their identity-based ideology, you are fascist.

This is what students learn in English class.

The student took pictures to document the brainwashing he was forced to undergo. You can see why teachers’ unions are so adamantly opposed to cameras in the classroom that would allow parents to monitor from home.

A passage from Through the Looking Glass comes to mind:

“When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

’The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

’The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.”

The creed that has appropriated the title “liberalism” is based on postmodernism. Language is seen as tool used to control not only people but reality itself, or what passes for reality within the context of relativist postmodern hogwash. This is why revisions to the Newspeak Dictionary are made so relentlessly.

“Fascism” no longer means what it has always meant; it means whatever our masters among the liberal ruling class find it advantageous to pretend it means.

Father’s Milk Added to Newspeak Dictionary

Language becomes increasingly surreal as progressives solidify control. To advance the LGBT agenda, they now want us to call breastmilk “father’s milk”:

New “gender inclusive” language guides put out by The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM) are being implemented in some US hospitals. A screenshot of a language guide table was shared to Twitter on Tuesday titled “Suggested Terms in Breastfeeding and Human Lactation.” On the left-hand side, a column labeled “traditional terms” includes “breast milk,” while a middle column of “Gender-inclusive terms” suggests “father’s milk” as a possible alternative.

According to the liberal religion, calling mother’s milk “father’s milk” is an act of political righteousness, because it disrupts the cisnormative gender binary.

Liberalism does not merely deviate from reality. It is the diametric opposite of reality. It is the rejection of reality.

NYC Demands Monkeypox Name Change

The murder hornet is not the only bug in need of a politically correct name change. The latest disease to be spread through the establishment-endorsed LGBT lifestyle continues to be known by the politically incorrect term “monkeypox.” The leftists in charge of our largest city slither to the rescue:

New York City asked the World Health Organization (WHO) on Tuesday to rename the monkeypox virus to avoid stigmatizing patients…

Due to its characteristic degeneracy, NYC has seen more monkeypox cases than any other American city.

[NYC Department of Health Commissioner Ashwin] Vasan referenced the “painful and racist history within which terminology like (monkeypox) is rooted for communities of color.”

Actually, monkeypox is rooted in the community of gayness, not color. Its connection to the sacred (to progressives) practice of homosexuality inspired the World Health Organization to declare it a global health emergency, despite only five deaths worldwide. Practically the only way nonhomosexuals contract it is by being little kids left in the custody of the affected community.

Nonetheless, for moonbats everything is always about race. The WHO announced last month that it would change the name “monkeypox” for being racist, but hasn’t gotten around to it.

Why exactly is “monkeypox” racist? Like many exotic diseases (e.g., AIDS), it is an export from Africa. Blacks also come from Africa. The liberals who decide what we can and cannot say appear to equate blacks with monkeys.

Calling monkeypox “monkeypox” will be an official thought crime as soon as the authorities tell us what we are supposed to call it instead. In the meantime, don’t you dare draw attention to the way it is spread, or a Fox Business panel might denounce you as a bigot:

Murder Hornets Get Name Change

As progress progresses, the Ministry of Truth works feverishly to keep the Newspeak Dictionary up to date. Murder hornets have a new name because racism:

The Entomological Society of America and the Entomological Society of Canada have adopted a new name for the murder hornet, also known as the Asian giant hornet, saying “the usage of ‘Asian’ in the name of a pest insect can unintentionally bolster anti-Asian sentiment” especially “amid a rise in hate crimes and discrimination against people of Asian descent.”

There is no significant discrimination against people of Asian descent in America. There are hate crimes, but they are not committed by people who have any idea that murder hornets are also called “Asian giant hornets.” They are committed by resentful urban blacks taking advantage of the collapse of law & order under liberal rule (see here, here, and here).

However, the point of Newspeak Dictionary updates is not to address reality, but to obfuscate it — often with virtue signaling intended to prop up the bogus liberal narrative.

Chris Looney, entomologist at the Washington State Department of Agriculture, authored the name change proposal, saying that the previous common name of the species, scientifically called Vespa mandarinia, “is at best a neutral and uninformative adjective, potentially a distraction from more salient characters of the organism, and at worst a racist trope.”

Seriously, the moonbat’s name really is Looney. We are living in an over-the-top comedy devoted to ridiculing liberals. If you don’t believe it, find any clip of Kamala “Heartbeat Away” Harris speaking publicly. The satire isn’t subtle.

Regime Redefines the Word “Recession”

The Newspeak Dictionary is revised constantly so as to control our thoughts by controlling our vocabulary. Usually this is applied to cultural issues, because politics is downstream of culture. But this method of manipulation can be applied to any topic, including economics. The word “recession” has not been abolished yet — but it has now been redefined:

For a sensible definition of “recession” and related terms, we can paraphrase Ronald Reagan. Recession is when your neighbor loses his job; depression is when you lose yours; recovery is when Democrats have been pried loose from power.

Moonbats Invent New Word: Heteropessimism

Normally, revisions to the Newspeak Dictionary entail erasing words that we are no longer allowed to use, on the principle that by restricting our vocabulary, social engineers can restrict our thoughts. Sometimes, however, our moonbat rulers add new words — like “heteropessimism.”

Via Salon:

Heteropessimism is a new word for an intuitive, possibly very old, concept in white Western culture. Coined in 2019 by writer Asa Seresin, heteropessimism is an attitude of disappointment, embarrassment or despair at the state of heterosexual relations – specifically about being in one.

Seresin’s definition is useful because this pessimism is accompanied by the paradoxical practice of sticking with heterosexuality in its current forms, even as it is judged to be “irredeemable.”

The proposed solution is for us to abandon normal, natural, healthy relationships and embrace alternative sexuality.

This will stop us from reproducing, so that our carbon emissions will no longer threaten to inconvenience the polar bears. As we wait to go extinct, we can enjoy the many exotic diseases that are spread through the homosexual lifestyle, now including monkeypox.

If there is despair in sexual relations, it is because feminism, degeneracy, and other aspects of the leftist mindset have poisoned them. To enable stable and fulfilling relationships, reject moonbattery and embrace the traditional values that served us so well for millennia.

Vocabulary as a Weapon

At first glance, postmodernism appears to be a juvenile posture, an ironic embrace of literal insanity that no one outside of academia would have time for. Yet it forms the basis of critical theory, the ideology of our ruling class. This is because postmodernism focuses on power and provides useful tactics for securing it.

Postmodernists hold that objective reality is nonexistent or irrelevant. What matters is the alternative reality they can create through control of language. That is why liberals are obsessed with policing what we can say.

It is not by accident that swamps are now called “wetlands,” bums are called “homeless,” and privileges bestowed by authoritarians are called rights — as a master countermoonbat explains in the video below. Via Thomas Sowell Wisdom:

This is why progressive revisions to the Newspeak Dictionary are relentless, and why they must be ignored.

“Morbid Obesity” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

As the medical profession succumbs to moonbattery, diseases cannot even be named, lest those afflicted by them feel stigmatized. Consequently, “morbid obesity” has been struck from the medical edition of the Newspeak Dictionary, woke researchers having denounced it as offensive.

Critics … slammed the recommendation, published in a leading obesity journal, saying it was ‘odd’ given morbid obesity is a clinical term.

Sure, it is a clinical term — just like a certain form of sexual depravity was listed in the DSM that clinicians are now required to affirm, revere, and encourage rather than acknowledge as an unhealthy disorder. Progress keeps marching.

[I]ndustry experts agreed that ‘less stigmatising’ language was crucial in the battle against the bulge, saying ‘words truly do matter’.

Joe Nadglowski, president of the Obesity Action Coalition, said: ‘The old expression “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me” doesn’t apply for those living with obesity.’

These days, it doesn’t apply for anybody. You don’t bully people with sticks and stones anymore. You bully them by accusing them of bullying you.

It comes after a separate team of researchers claimed the word obesity is racist and should be dropped in favour of ‘people in larger bodies’.

If a word is racist, that settles it. From now on, it must be referred to only as the O-word.

Looks like a journal needs a name change:

The proposed change to obesity language was made by a group of British experts writing in the journal Obesity, which describes itself as ‘the premier source of information… for people with obesity’.

The term “morbid obesity” describes a body mass index over 35, which is associated with a high risk of death. But death is no big deal in our culture compared to offensiveness.

The next step is for oncology journals to ban the word “cancer.” Telling people they have cancer makes them feel bad.

Word “Chief” Stricken From Newspeak Dictionary

Someone needs to get word to the servile liberals running the NFL. Like the Washington Redskins, the Kansas City Chiefs require a name change, as the word “chief” has been stricken from the English language by wokescolds:

The San Francisco Unified School District announced it will remove the word from its jobs titles. …

The school district said the decision was prompted after concerns were raised by Native American community members, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Indians must get a kick out of crybullying palefaces by pretending that anodyne words offend them. By agreeing to delete words from our own language on an arbitrary basis, we kneel in obeisance before them. Dominance and submission are the point of designating language as “offensive.”

Although libs apparently think otherwise, “chief” is not from any Indian language. It has been an English word meaning “head of a group” dating back to before the discovery of the New World. Like a lot of English vocabulary, it comes from a French word that in turn comes from a Latin word.

Sniggers the Wall Street Journal,

“Farewell great Chiefe,” says a character in Shakespeare’s “Antony and Cleopatra.” That’s dated to the early 1600s. Somehow we doubt he was thinking about the Sioux. A biblical translation from William Tyndale in 1526 speaks of “the power of Belzebub, the chefe of the devyls.” The earliest examples are hard to parse unless you’re fluent in Beowulfese, but here’s one we grasp from 1483, a decade before Columbus sailed to the west: “She was made abbesse and chyef of al the monasterye.”

Don’t San Francisco schools have English teachers who can explain this?

Probably not. English teachers specialize in moonbattery now, and have little time for anything else.

Stand by for more petty tyranny directed at the English language. The US Department of the Interior, which is run by a radical leftist you had better not call a squaw, spends some of the money confiscated from us through taxation and inflation on a Derogatory Geographic Names Task Force.

Newspeak Dictionary Update: Parasite Not Baby

While pranking passersby to see how they would react to abortion clinics at Walmart, Mark Dice came across a timely update to the Newspeak Dictionary. We are no longer to refer to babies as “babies” unless the mother decides not to kill them. Otherwise, we are to refer to babies as “parasites.”

Pure evil doesn’t really look like the latex demons in horror movies. It is more likely to look like the girl in the crop top in the video below:

If they have that much contempt for the worth of an innocent baby’s life, imagine how little they must value the lives of sexists, racists, homophobes, et cetera.

Word “Marijuana” Proclaimed to Be Racist

Google Docs may need adjustment to flag the word “marijuana,” because the moonbats running Washington State have deleted it from the Newspeak Dictionary on the grounds that it is racist:

Legislators recently passed a law that changes every Revised Code of Washington with the word “marijuana.” The change gets rid of the term, swapping it out for the word “cannabis.”

Supporters say the word “marijuana” has a long history of racism.

Good thing they have other words to use instead. Democrats encourage the use of marijuana because of course they do, so long as we refer to it with approved language.

Barks Democratic State Rep Melanie Morgan:

“Even though it seems simple because it’s just one word, the reality is we’re healing the wrongs that were committed against Black and Brown people around cannabis.”

No doubt her eyes misted over as she was swept away by this great historic moment.

The word “marijuana” is mainly racist becomes it comes from Spanish, implying in the minds of Evergreen State bureauweenies that Mexican immigrants were accused of smoking it back when it was bad.

This means the word is also transphobic, as Spanish is a gendered language that insists on the male/female dichotomy. If you must use the word “marijuana,” please say “marijuanx” instead, just as you would say “Latinx,” so as not to offend our transsexual cultural overlords.
