Michigan State University has issued a new guide demanding that students stop using racist words like Christmas, Reindeer, wreaths, Easter, chicks, bunnies, eggs, and merry.
Stop laughing. They are serious.
The guide says it “includes recommendations informing images, web content, speeches, events, and more.”
Campus Reform reports the guide claims “the origins of seemingly innocuous idioms or words may be racist, sexist or ableist in nature.” It specifically cites potentially harmful phrases like “cakewalk,” “tipping point,” “bonkers,” and “rule of thumb.”
The guide also flags some normal words that MSU considers problematic, including “tribe,” “founder,” “minorities,” and “America” when referring to the United States. The use of the words “radical,” “terrorist,” and “fundamentalist” are also discouraged when writing about religious extremism.
Language that usually describes traditionally Christian holidays was also prohibited by the MSU guide, according to Campus Reform.
Some of the discouraged words include “merry” or “Christmas trees,” “wreaths,” “holly,” “bells,” “gifts,” “reindeer,” “bunnies,” “eggs” and “chicks.”
Folks, the only cure for this nonsense is to stop sending your kids there. And for donors to stop giving them money.
These leftists want no less than the utter elimination of all western culture.
