• Public University Spends $16K On “Inclusive Language Campaign”

    The P.C. Police are the Debbie downers of society. They monitor your every word, and action and let you know that you’re a racist, homophobic, misogynistic, white privileged jerk!

    So what’s new?

    Now it’s a straight up assault at the University of Michigan. Over a dozen posters have been plastered across the campus cautioning students not to say things that might hurt others’ feelings, as part of their “Inclusive Language Campaign”, that is costing the University $16,000 to implement.


    Words declared unacceptable through the campaign include “crazy,” “insane,” “retarded,” “gay,” “tranny,” “gypped,” “illegal alien,” “fag,” “ghetto” and “raghead.” Phrases such as “I want to die” and “that test raped me” are also verboten.

    University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald told The College Fix in an email the campaign aims to “address campus climate by helping individuals understand that their words can impact someone and to encourage individuals to commit to creating a positive campus community.”

    Students have been asked to sign a pledge to “use inclusive language” and to help their peers “understand the importance of using inclusive language,” according to campaign materials.

    Though only in existence for one semester, the Inclusive Language Campaign has maintained a strong presence throughout the university. Students roaming the campus frequently encounter posters of all sizes reminding them: “YOUR WORDS MATTER,” and asking questions such as: “If you knew that I grew up in poverty, would you still call things ‘ghetto’ and ‘ratchet’?”

    In a time when college tuition rates are becoming a bigger source of contention, I can’t think of a more egregious waste of money.

    Here’s a thought…when I was a kid, I got called all kinds of names, and do you know what happened? I grew a pair of balls.

    We’re talking about college here; not kindergarten.

    The University of Michigan should stop its retarded reeducation camp.
