Seattle bans words ´citizen´
and ´brown bag´

Telegraph [UK], by Alasdair Baverstock

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/2/2013 1:15:45 PM

A memo which was circulated within local government in Washington state, before being leaked to local TV station KOMO News, advised state workers that they should refrain from using such phrases in official business. According to the memo, the word ‘citizen’ is offensive to those Seattlelites who are residents in the city, but not US citizens. The phrase ‘brown bag’ is offensive for its having been used as a verb during racial segregation in the United States. When deciding whether or not a black person was light-skinned enough to enter a private residence, servants would ‘brown bag’ them:

Help Wanted: Seattle Police Department looking for officers to enforce new "banned words" division. Helpful qualities: Ability to kick in heavy church doors and prior SWAT experience helpful.

Brown bag makes me hungry for lunch!

What infects the PC brain? Do these people lay awake at night deciding what someone may take offense at next? Causing offense (as if these things were actually offensive) may not be nice, but it is not illegal or cause for government action. My observations led me to the conclusion that most people TAKE offense for whatever their agenda is.

Taking offense is not something that can ever be prevented. I am greatly offended by the Obama administration and much of the democrat agenda. So what? It is my problem to deal with- not some goody two-shoes bureaucrat or politician!

"Brown bag"? Who did this? I never heard of it down here in the South. Was this a Yankee thing? Perhaps it´s what happened in the Pacific Northwest? I´ve been to the Pacific Northwest. They claim to not be racists but I´ve never seen a group of people (all were liberals) hate the Native Americans as much as they do. Their racism towards Native Americans was so appalling my mouth remained agape until I got back to Atlanta and inhaled a cloud of gnats.

I am offended that I cannot be referred to as a citizen, even though I am. Non-citizens, illegal aliens, visitors etc. should not be offended that we who are citizens call ourselves such. I suspect they call themselves that in their home country and that does not offend me. What is this country - if we can call it that anymore- becoming?

If the term "citizen" offends someone, then tough. Get out of MY state and don´t come back. If they aren´t a citizen, then they are illegal, PERIOD. As far as the term brown bag goes, I have used it many times in my life regarding taking my own lunch to work. Never had any idea that it had some sort of racial connotation. I will keep using the term, so I guess I am a racist by definition. Seattle sucks.

Sorry, but when I hear "brown bag" I think of a tuna sandwich, some chips and perhaps a Little Debbie. Don´t these numb skulls have any real problems to deal with? Can I assume that in the near future we will not be able to utter those racist words "dark chocolate" or "white milk"? What about "brown gravy" or "dark meat". This is not a slippery slope it is a trip down the rabbit hole of stupidity.

This is pc stupidity at its finest. Brown bag has nothing to do with racial connotation. Brown bags were made of brown kraft paper. The sacks were a light brown hue due to the process by which they were made. The bags were sturdy and provided a cheap transport for various lunch treats.
That´s it. No racial overtones, no bias, no prejudice. School kids. factory workers, secretaries and other brown baggers brought their lunch in a brown paper sack.
Sorry, PC police you made an ash of yourself on this one.

It seems that liberal, white, Seattle has a racism problem is what they are trying to say, right?

Never heard the term "brown bag" in reference to black people, so this is likely a regional racist term.

I have noticed that most of the racist problems are in liberal, upper-income, mostly white areas who are Democrats.

Why they heck are Blacks voting for those liberals?

"Irish I was a drinking" might be offensive to Elliott Bronstein but will bring a smile to the Irish.

Can you imagine the catatonic state that Elliott must be in when he goes out in public and hears the people around him?

Think of the 2 brothers on the tv show set in Seattle called "Frasier"
Both brothers were uptight while their dad was a regular Joe.

I have to admit to getting in trouble with my company one day from a brown bag. I had one with a neat picture of Mickey Mouse on it. We also had a new test system in System Test where somebody put an ugly cardboard back on it for a little bit of cooling air flow control. I cut my Mickey picture out and stuck it on the cardboard. The guys all laughed and went on about their business. The CEO saw it and came unglued. He was not amused. I got a warning out of it. So I was done in by a brown bag excess of humor. Too bad he was of the same demeanor as the folks in Seattle.

The CEO? Well, he was fired one day for sexual harassment. Twenty minutes after the team from the head office showed up he was out the door with brown bags in hand with his office detritus. Maybe the good people in Seattle will treat these weenies the same way.

You can´t make this stuff up.
The one time I ever heard the expression "brown bag" was in a one-season TV show, "Frank´s Place".
And as for "citizen": I am a citizen, and I find it offensive that illegals are collecting my tax dollars. Why should they receive that for which they have not worked?
They drink too much Starbucks in Seattle. Go back to tea. Tea does not weird you out like coffee.

Well, it sounds like the slippery slope is becoming an avalanche. So, are we going to outlaw the color words such as red, white, black, brown, beige and yellow?

Crayola is going to run out of crayons.

So I guess we have to outlaw terms such as "red flag" in sports, "white linen" for beddings, "black marble" for flooring, "brown sugar" in cooking, "beige color" for make-up and "yellow jackets" for gnarly bees.

Hello, Seattle...the term "citizen" is in the US Constitution. Do you want to ban that as well?

Boycott the darn city.

LONDON— With support growing for independence just months before Scots decide whether to break up with Britain, outsiders are weighing in with impassioned calls to keep the three-century-old union together. British officials from across the political spectrum, European Union leaders, corporate executives and retired military commanders have made their cases. Even David Bowie registered a plea for Scotland to “stay with us.” But there has been conspicuous silence from one major player with a lot to lose if Scotland secedes: the United States. A vote for independence would dismember Washington’s closest and most important ally, leaving behind a not-so-great Britain at

WEST SHOKAN, N.Y.— IF my mother had been aware enough to know what we were spending on her care, she would have been aghast. She’d always been frugal.

She could make a piece of tinfoil last clear into the next decade. She once made an old corduroy jumper of mine into a seat cover for the rocking chair — perfectly good material, not to be wasted.

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won a battle over the federal government´s round up of his cattle on public land after a week-long standoff with agents. The Bureau of Land Management announced today that it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia gathered in Nevada. Shortly after the deal was agreed, about 100 armed protesters, some on horse back, headed to a corral to demand the BLM also hands back cattle it had already taken. Armed members of the BLM and the Bundy family were also reported to be involved in tense talks

Several letters to the editor published in The Washington Post on Saturday strongly criticized the Matt Schudel obituary of Marine Gen. Carl Mundy from April 6. Favorable obituaries are more likely for left-wing radicals like "visionary scientist" Barry Commoner, to recall Schudel´s recent work. It began by noting the general offended liberals (without using the L-word): “Carl E.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
