A letter to the Herald complained that Republicans wish to “re-brand” themselves and practice “discrimination,” re-naming it “religious freedom.”
In fact, it is the political left who have mastered the corruption of the English language to advance their own agendas, employing euphemisms to replace more accurate terms.
“Illegal alien” was supplanted by “undocumented immigrant.” “Islamic terrorism” was labeled “workplace violence.” Providing cover to the militant feminist movement, “pro-abortion” became “pro-choice.” Ironically, “gay,” which once meant “happy,” is now scarcely ever used in that sense. California Democrats want to expunge “husband” and “wife” from the public lexicon and be replaced with something less “hateful.” I predict that “straight couple” may soon be discarded and replaced with, what — “narrow-minded hicks,” perhaps?
Despite society’s near-universal acceptance of the most vile, profane, even blasphemous words and expressions, only one seems now strictly forbidden from print or utterance — a word deemed so loathsome it can only be furtively referenced by the use of its first letter, “n.”
