Language Larceny: College Warns Students Not To Use Oppressive Words Like 'Picnic'

The hypocrisy has always been the point.

Keep that in mind as you read the latest liberal drivel coming out of an elitist Northeastern college. Apparently students at Brandeis University now need a trigger warning for the phrase “trigger warning.” Some made-up coalition of leftist water carriers have decided that a number of benign phrases, including “trigger warning,” “rule of thumb,” and even “picnic,” reinforce systems of oppression and should be outlawed, or something. To much of America, these ridiculous hostage negotiations for language sound insane. But before you roll your eyes and toss this latest example of liberalism-gone-wrong aside, let’s take a look at what these small battles, continually perpetrated by the left, really mean for society today.

The woke hyperbole machine, which has slowly been chewing up freedom and regurgitating it as the seeds of “equitable” tyranny, is not actually being driven by collective insanity. The foot soldiers of the movement—the looters, the activists, and the disgruntled college Marxists—have been fully indoctrinated by a small faction of incredibly intelligent puppet masters at the top of the leftist hierarchy.

Stop calling them crazy. They are carrying out the largest ideological heist in the history of mankind: stealing the world’s first truly free country away from its own citizens without firing a shot.

By making benign language offensive all of a sudden, and then elevating offensiveness (especially racial offensiveness) to the level of criminality, they are setting that precedent that any dissidence to their ideology is punishable by force.

Of course the leftist leaders know that stigmatizing a word like "picnic" is blatantly absurd, and that their little minions who clamor for these types of things are the saddest excuse for an army is world history. But again, this war isn’t being fought with munitions. All the puppeteers need to do to win is to create an alternate, mirrored version of reality in which normal people with no interest in fighting a war of words suddenly feel guilty for simply existing.

The only way to create this fraudulent reality is to change the meaning of language and eliminate context from our discourse. Without context, there can be no grace, and without grace, regular folks change their behavior in order to survive.

Society becomes reliant on dishonesty instead of integrity, all because a few people at the top know that transforming America into a welfare state would usher in a new generation of power and prosperity for themselves and their cohorts.

The hypocrisy has always been the point.

Right now, towing the leftist line scores you social points only with other lefties. However, the dishonesty is bleeding into other aspects of society with more tangible consequences, like job opportunities and education. Unless the war on language is thwarted, the dishonest, hypocritical rhetoric of the left will eventually preclude average American from holding any job at all. Maybe even owning anything at all. Like citizens staring at a naked emperor in his ‘new clothes,’ Americans will be forced to lie by their silence as the oligarchy parades through the town square, all-powerful and absurd.
