Saying “Crippled” Leads to Arrest

Make sure your Newspeak dictionary is up to date, and study it carefully on a daily basis. Use of previously innocuous words that our rulers have arbitrarily forbidden can lead to arrest:

A man who says he was charged with disorderly conduct after using the word “crippled” to promote a comedian with muscular dystrophy claims Cincinnati police violated his free speech rights, and the comedian agrees.

Forest Thomer, of Cold Spring, Ky., is to appear in a Cincinnati courtroom on the charge Wednesday. He was cited by Cincinnati police last month at a park after he and comedian Ally Bruener say he asked people if they wanted to “laugh at the crippled girl.”

The question was not intended to demean his friend Bruener, but to promote her next comedy show and her allybruener.com website, the two said Monday. Bruener, who is in a wheelchair because of the degenerative muscle disorder, said she would approach people after Thomer asked them the question, tell a joke and talk about her next performance. Thomer also would record some of the public’s responses for use on Bruener’s website, showing people saying: “I laughed at the crippled girl.”

For his thought crime, Thomer could get 30 days in the hoosegow.

As for the crippled— I mean, as for the person of handicappedness,

“I don’t think words have power until you react negatively to them,” said Bruener.

They don’t, but our PC rulers do, so watch your tongue. By the way, the word Chinaman is also forbidden now, in case you hadn’t heard. No one seems to know why.

Do not wear this in the presence of law enforcement officials.

    We are slowly by surely losing our language to the idiocy of political correctness. Every day, another word comes up that we are not allowed to say becasue it might OFFEND someone.

    Sorry to be so NIGGARDLY about this, but this type of thing DWARFs reality. I feel the CRIPPLING weight of oppression on me.

    …oops……….

    Any sane people out there still think “hate crime” legislation is a good idea?

    Speaking of weight…don’t call a fat person fat. The appropriate term is now GRAVITATIONALLY CHALLENGED.

    Unlike our PC overlords I find the premise for that shirt pretty damned funny. Good for the comedienne w/ MS for making PC-speak her bitch. She has more juevos than the majority of these govt ninnies.

    What would Muslims or blacks do about police who did this to them? Learn people!

    I think there is something more to this story that we’re not being told.

    Political correctness is crippling our language AND our society. Newspeak is the only language that gets smaller every year. I wonder if 1st graders are required to answer 5 when asked how much 2 + 2 equals?

    You are all subjects to the liberal masters. You cannot reason, negotiate or bargain with this level of insanity, you submit or die. I am willing to kill these people without fear, compassion or quarter, when you reach that point you will be free.

    ‘That’s ridicurus,’ said the crippled Chinaman.

    My mother was a cripple … and I and all my family are thought-criminals for saying so.
