• More PC BS! San Diego Outlaws The Words “FOUNDING FATHERS”.


    Government and education agencies have attempted to control the language of the world before. Last year the University of New Hampshire banned the use of the word “American”, but this takes the cake.

    With Presidents Day coming up, San Diego just tried to ban the offensive words “Founding Fathers”.

    However, amidst growing outrage from all over the country, it looks like the city of San Diego is backing down somewhat from their absurd decree to ban the term from being used by any city employees.

    From Fox News:

    The traditional reference to America’s patriotic patriarchs was an example of “gender biased” language in a city manual, and the admonition not to use it was reinforced this week with verbal orders, according to legal watchdog group,Pacific Justice Institute.

    “At a time set aside to honor American icons to whom we owe our constitutional freedoms, it is offensive and indefensible that the City of San Diego is directing employees not to even mention the Founding Fathers,” Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, said in a statement provided to FoxNews.com.

    The warning against referring to Washington, Jefferson, Adams and company as “Founding Fathers” first appeared in a section of a city-issued manual titled, “Bias-Free Language.”

    The city caught a glimpse of the firestorm they were igniting and pulled back.

    The Pacific Justice Institute wrote Mayor Kevin Faulconer on Monday to demand that the guidelines be rescinded, citing more than 1,500 Supreme and lower court decisions that directly invoke the phrase “Founding Fathers.”

    “We are calling on the mayor to immediately retract these guidelines and reassure city employees that they will not be punished for being patriotic,” Dacus said. “We cannot allow this type of censorship and PC insanity to destroy our free speech.”

    Dacus said any city employee who is disciplined for uttering the phrase can rely on his organization for help.

    “The folly of the prohibition is so self-evident that we will offer to represent, at no charge, any city employee who is disciplined or admonished for invoking our Founding Fathers,” he said.

    It won’t happen, according to Keach.

    “No employee has ever been disciplined for referencing our founding fathers, and no one ever will,” she said.
