Social Media is allowing for fringe left-wing ideas to creep into the mainstream.
Nonsense that was relegated to university campuses has spread everywhere.
And you’ll roll your eyes in disgust when you hear this one term the pc police want struck out of Americans’ mouths now.
Leftists believe they can reshape society by simply policing and manipulating language.
They are the masters of Orwellian newspeak.
Now the PC police want to get rid of the term “blacklist.”
It’s time we stop using offensive and harmful words like "blacklist," which have clearer, more inclusive alternatives. https://t.co/W4o8leEIhB

Blacklist and whitelist are terms commonly used in computer science and cybersecurity to indicate something is allowed, or not allowed. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, which defines the word as “a list of banned or excluded things of disreputable character,” its first known use dates back to 1624. It’s time to stop using it.
Leftists rove around looking for things to get offended over.
Only a rich country could have people so frivolous they make causes out of such idiocy as what jargon is used by hackers and cybersecurity experts.
But that doesn’t mean Big Tech isn’t all for wiping away use of these supposedly hurtful terms.
Camille Stewart, Google’s global head of product security and strategy, said:
“As we work to fill open cybersecurity jobs and create a more diverse and inclusive industry that is better able to combat cyber threats, inclusivity, and the intentionality that requires, has to permeate every aspect of the field, including the language. ‘Blacklist’ equates black with bad and white with good.”
Leftists are so insane, they equate the term “blacklist” with black people.
Ironically, Hollywood currently has an annual “blacklist” for the most-liked unproduced screenplays voted on by managers, agents, and development executives.
At some point, the Left will have to ban “blacktie” events to stay consistent.
They may as well just replace the word.
But then they’d set about banning that word because it connotes the color formerly known to be used in terms those idiots perceived to have a negative impact on black people.
The Left has become a cult.
Even the dictionaries have gone “woke.”
The language police are so far gone, there is no clear definition for the word “woman.”
Merriam Webster amended the definitions of “court-packing” and “sexual preference” to dovetail with political rhetoric the Democrat Party is using.
And the Twitter account for Merriam Webster also recently tweeted out “crocodile tears” as it’s word of the day after Kyle Rittenhouse cried on the stand during his murder trial.
Now the Woke Mobsters want to ban anyone from saying “blacklist.”
