1984 - Really. Think about it. It there anything more stupid than a liberal?
- The Thought Police in liberal Democrat New York schools want to ban words like "religion", "sex", "cancer", "terrorism" and "dinosaur".
- Big Brother says we need to "re-educate" the children and protect them from thinking impure thoughts that are not government approved.
George Orwell's Thought Police are marching in the New York City Department of Education. The touchy-feely Leftist Democrats of New York are waging a war on words that might upset the little children . . . or worse . . . cause the children to think non-government approved thoughts. The insane liberals are seeking to have words they deem upsetting removed from school standardized tests.
Fearing that certain words and topics can make students feel unpleasant, officials are requesting 50 or so words be removed from city-issued tests reports CBS News.
The word “dinosaur” made the hit list because dinosaurs suggest evolution which creationists might not like. “Halloween” is targeted because it suggests paganism; a “birthday” might not be happy to all because it isn’t celebrated by Jehovah’s Witnesses.
