The University of Maryland (UMD) allocated $15,000 in 2012 to combat the use of language deemed by administrators to be “insensitive.”
The “words have power” campaign’s goal is to deploy posters, buttons and other promotional materials to help foster an environment on campus that is not offensive to illegal aliens, homosexuals, or other minority groups.
“Non-inclusive language can offend or make spaces uncomfortable for people who are excluded by that language,” one of the campaign posters reads.
“It is easy to accidentally use offensive language, but since you could just as easily be on the receiving end of such language, you should try to ensure that you are not offending others with the words and phrases you use,” it adds.
One sign tells students to avoid using the phrase “that’s so ghetto” and substitute the term with words like “grimey,” “wack,” or “messed up.”
Similar signs can be seen throughout UMD’s campus discouraging students from using phrases such as “illegal alien,” “that’s so retarded,” and “no homo.”
I think this is a fantastic idea and defend their right to post idiotic signs. The reason I think this is a great idea is because it puts stupid progressive thinking on the front burner for all to see. Properly raised children that can think for themselves will find this hilarious. Well the sheeple kids, they will just always be what they are.
TLC- What comes to mind for me is the child who is aways calling " Mommy! Mommy! come see what i did!" after they smired their shit on the bedroom walls. The mother comes back with " that is the Best shit smiring i have ever seen, dear!"
These progressives give them the attition they so need.
Andy, I see and hear a lot, but then comes along someone that sums up the country's problems in just a few words, which you just did. But this is more likely how it will happen. The parents walk in and catch the kid doing it and they begin videoing the incident and post it on youtube, all the while you hear the parents laughing their butts off in the background.
With the libs running and ruining the Country-- Nothing any longer F**KEN Sorprises me. !!!
I guess i'm just old school and can't see to the progressive part. I still operate from " This is shit, shit is Shinoa! one goes on your shoes, the other doesn't!" but you will know which one you just stepped in.
One stinks and the other doesn't!
AMEN...tired of the PC BS
Maybe California will implode now with all the liberal majorities that can pass anything they want and serve as a model for the rest of the country on what NOT TO DO.
