    Words Matter

    Liberals love to change language to support their ideology. Consider the news from San Francisco.

    "Crime-ridden San Francisco has introduced new sanitized language for criminals, getting rid of words such as “offender” and “addict” while changing “convicted felon” to “justice-involved person.”

    "The Board of Supervisors adopted the changes last month even as the city reels from one of the highest crime rates in the country and staggering inequality exemplified by pervasive homelessness alongside Silicon Valley wealth.
    "The local officials say the new language will help change people’s views about those who commit crimes."

    Actually, it just reinforces my view that everyone in San Francisco, led by the retarded politicians, are insane.

    "According to the San Francisco Chronicle, from now on a convicted felon or an offender released from custody will be known as a “formerly incarcerated person,” or a “justice-involved” person or just a “returning resident.”

    "A juvenile “delinquent” will now be called a “young person with justice system involvement,” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.”

    "And drug addicts or substance abusers, meanwhile, will become “a person with a history of substance use.”

    It brings to mind a discussion on late-term abortion when a liberal said, "We don't consider an abortion to be killing." My response was, "I can understand that because I don't consider strangling a liberal as, you know, killing."

    Words used to matter. Now in this PC climate they mean nothing.

    They mean whatever the liberal speaking wants them to mean which means they have no meaning. It's one of the reasons trying to talk to a liberal is so frustrating. I'm so old I can remember when retarded as a word was banned and replaced by exceptional as in, "All liberals are exceptional."

    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."
    "You can get a lot further with a kind word and a gun
    Then you can get with just a kind word"

    The Left is really that dumb. I have been thanking our Extremist friends on the Left all year in advance for Trump's landslide 2020 victory. They are the ones who have worked the hardest for ensure Trump's next victory. -John T. Ford
