Trump bans CDC from using words like ‘transgender,’ ‘diversity,’ and ‘entitlement’

George Orwell would have been the first to admit that by controlling language you can control people’s attitudes. The government has been doing that for years with code phrases like “Abortion” (also known as ending the life of a baby) and “Earned Income Tax Credit” (also known as welfare).

But now liberals are getting upset that President Trump is ripping several pages from their new-speak lexicon.

    From the story:

    “Vulnerable”: This word has been used by liberals to mean many things, depending on the context. Someone could be “vulnerable” to drug use, meaning he’s a drug addict, or someone could be “vulnerable” in the sense that he is incapable of holding a job or earning a living. I suggest using “lazy” as a more descriptive term.

    “Entitlement”: We used to call this “welfare.” But when it became an “entitlement,” it became something people are owed – in this case, other people’s money. It put them on a higher moral plane. We could go back to calling it welfare or, perhaps a little more precisely, robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    “Diversity”: Diversity is a code word for ethnic cleansing of heterosexual white men. The opposite of “diversity” – “gentrification” – is considered a bad thing, because while “diverse” ethnic cleansing is considered positive, the opposite, putting too much cream in the coffee, so to speak, is not. What can replace “diversity”? How about “banishment of white men”? It’s wordy, but again, it’s accurate.

    “Transgender”: A whole new word was created by people with a delusion who insist that the entire world accommodate their delusion. We could go back to calling it to what the American Psychiatric Association used to call it, which was simply “mental illness.”

    “Fetus”: This one confuses me. Liberals actually want to deny the existence of fetuses, so I am not sure what trouble Trump has with this word.

    “Evidence-based” and “Science-based”: These phrases have been perverted to present opinion, and blatantly false “research,” as incontrovertible fact. The global warming scam comes immediately to mind. Liberals use this phrase to shut down any discussion of the global warming agenda. Not only has science become politicized and perverted, but even the language describing it has, so now the term “science-based” has actually become a liberal code phrase to represent the perversion of science. No wonder Trump doesn’t want to be associated with it.

    Language is important because policies flow, in part, from language. If the CDC is obsessed with “transgender” and “vulnerable,” it is not focused on its main priority, protecting the health of all Americans, not niche groups with political cachet.

    From the comments: Democrats are a vulnerable gaggle of diverse fetuses that all believe they are entitled to others’ sweat equity.
    And the media is the Democrats’ “I.E.D”.:
    Improbable Excuse Device.

      These Democrats can’t be white if they are ‘diverse’.

  • Douglas McKinnie

    I see no evidence in any of the articles I’ve read on this that this edict comes from Trump, the Whitehouse, or any person put in place by Trump.

      Regardless whoever is responsible deserves praise. Long overdue.

      Indirect evidence–all the right people are screaming about this change, which means, odds are, it’s from the Trump admin in some fashion.

  • Watchman

    “Instead of “science-based” or ­“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,””

    Well unless they have changed their standards instead of just terminology that would mean they have just admitted that “science-based” or ­“evidence-based” are another way of saying “what the average person believes, instead of relying strictly on evidence gathered using the scientific method.” In other words “science-based” and ­“evidence-based” are just narratives, requiring no facts.
