How Google Is Attempting To ‘Newspeak’ The English Language

June 5, 2021 by

By Douglas Blair ~ In a social engineering move that seems straight out of the pages of George Orwell, Google recently introduced an update to its Google Docs platform that encourages users to use more “inclusive” language. Inclusive language advocates argue that words like “he” and “she” are transphobic, or that phrases like “blind date” […]

By Larry Bell ~ George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel, “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” envisaged a fictional government of Oceania comprised of four ministries: a Ministry of Love, a Ministry of Peace, a Ministry of Plenty, and an all-important Ministry of Truth.

By Nancy Morgan When a word comes too close to actually identifying an inconvenient reality, secular progressives spring into action. The offending word is either redefined or reduced to its first letter, thereby signifying that polite society will no longer accept it.

Andrew Bolt TonyfromOz prefaces ….. Is this political correctness gone too far. The word ‘terrorism’ per se conjures up the wrong images, while ‘man caused disasters’, well, it sort of smooths over any uncomfortable thoughts, so people will not become so stressed. What the! With one word, Barack Obama’s new Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano, […]
