I think Trump read 1984 and identified too much with the baddies. "Newspeak" (banning terms in official speech was part of that) didn't work all that well in the book.

I guess if he doesn't hear it, he doesn't have to acknowledge it. Just keep burying your head deeper and deeper, Mr. Trump. Eventually all of our voices will be a distant nightmare.

And PS, Brawndo has electrolytes, don't knock it.

I was really curious to see where the right-wing free speech brigade here on ATS stood on the government banning words scientific agencies can use.

They are strangely absent though.

I always suspected that Republicans were against the scientific method, but I've never seen anything like this before.

I doubt it was Trump directly..

I’d be more inclined to look a little lower down, to someone like the Secretary of Health and Human Services..



Yes, but it is under Trump's leadership. A leader is responsible for the actions of those he/she leads.

This is is an attempt to normalize calling an unborn human a "baby" by pro-life people, instead of the scientifically correct term "fetus" during the correct developmental period.

Next they'll demand that "lungs" be called "inflatable elf bags".

I detest PC bullsh#t language.

That being said, what I hate even more is censorship. If weasel-dicked morons want to pen their reports using whatever language they desire, they should be able to.

Censorship is censorship. No matter who does it or for what reason.

So you are against Rick Scott, the governor of Florida for censoring any talk about climate change and global warming by Florida's Department of Environmental Protection(DEP)?

Jeezus!

What part of being against censorship do you not get?

I know the leftists like to parse things to death, but I'm not like them.

I'm actually against all forms of censorship not just against things that might impact my ideological bend.

No need to get testy. No one was talking about you in particular, but I'm glad to see that you see a problem with this.

I couldn’t agree more!

Hell, Trump can’t pronounce most of those words, much less spell them or understand their meaning.

Reading and comprehension is already hard enough for him without including words and phrases like those.

Absolutely outrageous and I suspect maybe even a little bit illegal. If it isn’t, it certainly should be IMO.

Nothing that idiot does surprises me anymore, I’ve come to expect nothing less than the most ludicrous acts imaginable from this piss-poor excuse of a POTUS.

If I worked at the CDC, my first press release would include every one of those prohibited words and/or phrases, just to piss him off.

It makes them feel left out.

In their world, if it can’t be stated as an easy-to-remember slogan suitable for bumper sticker publication, then it ain’t worth remembering and it definitely can’t be true. So they may as well ban it altogether.

You realize it's a hijacking of 7 banned words by George Carlin. Ok you've just been had

Since words are more important to folks than actually preventing & curing stuff, maybe the CDC should use taxpayer funds to develope a disease that attacks specific ideological thought-patterns in humans, that way, any viewpoint that is counter to the Ministry of Truth will be eliminated, and everyone else can live happily ever after in the new world.

Given the partisan reactions and comments section of the source article (set default view to 'most popular') it appears that words can now control & cure diseases and pandemics and this new announcement is all basically Jesus's and his cult followers fault and Trump is a fundie.

Thank you, that's exactly what it is. Newspeak. The bad, forbidden words will have to be replaced with something, after all. The word "fetus" has no place in reports about human diseases, I guess. And God forbid it should be based on science.

If anyone who has railed against political correctness on these forums will defend this, then they're huge hypocrites. You could almost say it's time to...

Wake up, America!

And thank you. It's not my place to give anyone approval for what they post or don't post here, but still.

Idiocracy has been in play for awhile now.

Who cares what the experts and scientists have to say....lets take a vote of the manipulated dumb masses to determine important policies.


I care what scientist have to say but I don't care what the UN Scientist say. The lies being told in the name of official science are in fact proof they did not and will not follow a scientific process as defined by history. These Idiocracy style "scientists" are in fact charlatans working for the cabal who want more power and money.

It is the democrats and PC speech that bans words the citizens can say. People with jobs have to use the language deemed conducive to success and avoid using words that create failure. That is not loss of free speech just a possible loss of income if they can't follow instruction.

Conservatives have known that there is a list they can't say as per the Progressive's opinion.

I approved of very little the last 4 admins did when they ran this leftist style and so far approve of Trumps choices to undo the mess they created, quite frankly. It is ok for this Admin to have a policy you Progressives hate because the P's have proven to love the things that are destined to destroy our society for a "higher" purpose.
