Duke University Student Groups
Launch Word Police Campaign

Breitbart Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/27/2014 11:56:22 AM

A pair of student groups at North Carolina´s Duke University has launched a poster campaign to impress upon students that using some slang words is not acceptable on campus. With their "You Don´t Say" campaign, the student organizations Think Before You Talk and the LGBTQ organization Blue Devils United are trying to stop students from using slang such as "that´s retarded," or "that´s gay" to describe something that isn´t cool. The campaign is also warning students not to casually use the word "raped" to explain how something may have been hard to do--such as "I was really raped by that

A college in Wisconsin did this and it was thought to be stupid! Since when does one set oneself to judge what is to be spoken and not spoken.

These kids need tougher assignments from the professors so they don´t have so much time on their hands. After all school is quite expensive these days and I can think of a whole lot of better ways they could be spending their time.

Okay, even though I am an extremely naive person, I understand the meaning of "LGBT" but what does the "Q" stand for, Questionable?

"One poster warns readers, ´I don´t say ´Man up´ because I don´t believe in gender norms´."

Just because I perceive the sun rises in the east doesn´t mean everyone thinks so.

A white friend of mine, a college law professor, was asked by his black colleague how it was going with a particularly long, complex article the white friend was writing (and everyone knew it was a dog of an article), to which he replied "It´s almost too much for me -- a work of many months -- I´ve been slaving over this thing for far too long." At which point the black colleague snapped at him "I find a white person using that phraseology offensive."

I´m going to disagree with posters thus far.

I don´t know if they feel this way because it´s coming from a college campus gay group (I´m straight, by the way) - a maybe knee jerk reaction? But it did make me think further from this article, or rather back.

I rarely hear the word "queer" anymore, but more and more on morning radio I hear "crap"´- and on TV I hear pretty much every thing George Carlin said couldn´t be said on TV. What was once thought as being awful comes out of the mouths of babes way, way too often.

Gosh yes, I´ll say the F-word, it often seems the one word that describes the utter defeat I feel at the moment. And of course there´s sh**. Pretty acceptable, until you hear your grandchild say it and you wonder, did he pick that up from me?

I know it´s lazy to use these words, usually used for brevity´s sake. But I´m wanting to not only say them less, I´m wanting to think more. I don´t think the world would be a worse place with less use of them.

Do I tire of the micro aggression of some who, in my mind, over react to a word such as "slave" innocently thrown into a sentence, used in a non-slave way as it´s been used for years? Yep, you bet. But these kids seem to come from a gentle reminder point of view, at least I´d like to think so.

Either way, I´d like it if regular conversations started having less "cuss" words in them. It seems there are some, though, who want to make us a less civilized society.

Yes folks, I tend to forget that there is a subset of humanity who are less civilized and more vocal lately. Those who did not hear the old kids rhyme that goes, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me!" These days, thanks to changing times, words do in fact harm people. Use the wrong one around that subset and they will revert to their native savage behavior, break your bones, and laugh while doing so.

And now for my closing thought, ask yourself when this ugly chain of events became prominent. Those Duke University student groups are nothing short of liberal tools who are taking part in this destructive trend while never thinking about the end result.

So let me get this straight (I am still allowed to use that word?), words can have more than one meaning but if I use a word and you are thinking of the other meaning...then I am racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.. How did things ever get so blanked up? The only way to fight it is to ignore it because as soon as you change it to the currently PC version, they will change it again so they can continue to call you racist, sexist, homophobic, or what ever else they can call it so they can continue to control you.

"Q" stands for "questioning," as in, "I don´t think I´m gay, but gee, I realize that that guy at the gym is really cut, how can I get abs like that? OMG I noticed his abs, maybe I am gay. Besides everything I read today makes me realize that bring gay is super cool, so maybe I could be gay. I just don´t know."

Well, I hear the word queer frequently and it is usually coming out of the mouth of a, well, queer. I also hear b/t/h, c@nt, pu^^y, usually coming out of the mouth of a (young) woman. I hear the "n" word more often, actually most often, out of a black person´s mouth. This campaign seems more geared toward white males. I may be assuming a lot, but I bet I´m correct. This campaign is not about gentility and refinement and speaking correctly in the right places and times. This is about thought control, period. I wish it was about refined language. If it was, I´d suggest a poster stating, "I don´t say like, uh, you know, like, ummm, in every sentence I utter, ´cause, like, you know, it´s ignorant."

#6, the snappy answer your friend ought to have given is that the word "slave" derives from the name of the group of people who were so frequently captured, sold and forced to work for others that their name became the name for the condition.

That group would be the Slavs.

And they are generally White, so I think a White person could use the term.

Where in the constitution is the right not to be offended?
Orwell could have told you that a "Word Police" is merely a Thought Police in disguise. This jives with the concept of a "hate crime": "We´ll penalize you more for a crime if we can agree that how you´re thinking is offensive." So, just expressing a view that global warming is hogwash has been enough to put climate scientists on a blacklist: "How could he DARE think in a manner that contradicts the consensus?"
The left is conducting an "Inquisition" with a dogma of their own- Think "Right", or else.

#10 -- Civilized people agree (or used to) that what was once known as "adult language" shouldn´t be used in the presence of children.

The issue at Duke is a horse of quite a different color, with words ("retarded," "gay," "raped") that once would have been acceptable in print in any reputable scientific or technical journal suddenly being equated with the coarse and vulgar four- and five- and twelve-letter words we all know.

The best way to deal with Duke´s dogmatic Junior Thought Police is to ignore them -- or, better yet, laugh at them.

Gee, if you can´t say, "b*itch," you can´t go to dog shows, and if you can´t say, "tranny," you can´t go to car shows.
If you can´t say, "f@g," you can´t use the term from a generation ago to ask for a cigarette, and if you can´t say, "f@got," you can´t ask for a small bundle of wood sticks used to make a fire, so you can´t go camping! Oh, the humanity!

I see that the word, "homo," is still allowable, thank goodness, otherwise those kids with heads of mush wouldn´t be able to go to Anthropology class where the term, "homo sapien" is used extensively.

Seriously, these kids are in need of a serious dose of reality. They´re soooo hypersensitive because they´re all soooo arrogant. This kind of thinking can only prosper in an over-tolerant and prosperous country. It´s obvious that Duke University, which was all too anxious to punish the male LaCrosse Team for allegedly heterosexually raping a prostitute, is now becoming "Broke Back University."

White House spokesman says

A White House spokesman said Wednesday that there is an "ongoing law enforcement investigation" related to a recording released earlier in the day by a Republican congressman who alleged it showed improper fundraising activity by former U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis -- now a Los Angeles County supervisor-elect. The comment by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest at a press briefing was the first public confirmation by the administration of the existence of such an investigation. Earnest noted that the investigation had been reported on in January. The Times first reported the federal investigation into Solis´ activities at that time,

According to refugee data from the U.S. Department of State, the federal government did not grant refugee protection to a single person from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador or Mexico in fiscal year 2013. Now, almost all of the unaccompanied children illegally crossing into the U.S. from Mexico are coming from those nations, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other congressional Democrats have described these illegal aliens as “refugees.” In the seven fiscal years from 2007 through 2013, a mere five Guatemalans and 25 Hondurans were granted refugee status in the United States.

You’ve heard him make this argument before but he’s getting more apocalyptic with each appearance before Congress — and who can blame him? The last time he testified, Obama wasn’t babbling to activists about amnestizing five million illegals with a stroke of his pen. Today Turley calls O’s rhetoric about unilateral action “extreme” and warns the committee that Congress will effectively self-destruct if the executive is allowed to do what he wants whenever there’s gridlock.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
