Seattle is considering banning the words “brown bag” and “citizen” because the words offend black people and illegals.
Daniel Greenfield responds, “When Seattle one day gets around to banning all words, because language is inherently offensive to the illiterate, and everyone is reduced to communicating with grunts and emphatic gestures, an era of true tolerance and nomadic lifestyles will be upon us.” That is hilarious Daniel! Well said.
George Orwell’s “1984″ prophecy is coming true. Freedom of Speech is dying. Censorship is growing. Controlling language = controlling thoughts. Controlling thoughts is mind control. Zombies. Robots. The walking dead.
When I grew up, I was banned from using certain words, not by the government, but by my father. I was banned from saying God’s name in vain, or using it as a curse word. I was also banned from saying euphemisms for God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit, i.e. “golly,” “gee,” “gee-whiz,” “gosh,” “holy cow,” etc. I wasn’t allowed to say the “f” word, or the “n” word, or “sh**,” or even “crap.” I didn’t want to. I respected God and my parents and others.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue…”
Dad said that the only biological systems used as ‘cuss’ words were the reproductive and the excretory systems. He said the human body was a magnificent masterpiece (Psalm 139) and that using body parts in a derogatory fashion was blasphemous to God, the Creator. I love that. I love that Dad taught me to respect God and the human body, mine and others’. Words are powerful. Using bad language affects your personality and your behavior.
I taught my children the same. We don’t say “f-a-r-t.” I told my daughter that saying “f-a-r-t” would lead to saying “f-*-*-k”, which would lead to smoking, then drinking, then alcohol, pot, cocaine, and then heroin. She said, “You’re telling me that if I say, “f-a-r-t,” I’ll become a heroin addict?!” I replied, “Yes.” She said, “Can I say “fert”?
If you can’t control your tongue, you can’t control anything.
However, the current governmental movement to control our speech is not based on morality or Biblical principles or even kindness. It is part of a larger agenda from the Progressives/Communists to control everything. Our media is controlled by the government. Our public education. Our money. Our health care…maybe. (Obamacare will probably crash). Our smoking areas. Our soda and caloric intake. What I bring on a plane. What I pack on a trip. What I wear on my head in my Driver’s License photo. What we post on the Internet. And now, our words. Our thoughts.
