PC Police Find New “Offensive,” Commonly Used Word to Ban

Michelle Obama's offensive sign censored
Alert! I am now writing for The Political Insider!

This article was originally published on The Political Insider:

Of course, Michelle Obama could be forgiven for being unable to keep up with the latest word or phrase the PC police has deemed too offensive to write or say out loud. There are so many, practically a new one every day!

It started with legitimately offensive terms such as the N-word, the C-word, the F-word – but of course the liberal thought police have taken it to the extreme. Now there’s the B-word (bossy), the new F-word (fag), and the R-word (retarded), all words that have been commonly used in the American lexicon. At this point, why don’t we just go all out and ban any word that begins with a letter of the alphabet?!

Following the “Ban Bossy” campaign, the new trendy feminist word to ban is one used since perhaps the beginning of time — “girl.”
Its last political correctness row was over the use of the N-word.

Now, the BBC is once again under fire. Only this time, the dispute involves a rather less offensive term … girl.

The corporation was accused of censorship after cutting the ‘G-word’ from a documentary on the Commonwealth Games.

During the programme, presenter Mark Beaumont, 31, was flung to the ground by a young judo champion, and joked: ‘I am not sure I can live that down – being beaten by a 19-year-old-girl.’

His remarks were aired in full when the documentary, called The Queen’s Baton Relay, was first broadcast on the BBC News Channel in April.

But fearing viewers might take offence, the corporation decided to edit out the word ‘girl’ when it was repeated last week.

Maybe the next hashtag campaign will have to be #BringBackTheWordGirl.

By the Numbers: Medicaid Expansion in Alabama

Alabama Policy Institute is out with this graphic on why their state should not expand Medicaid. Expanded coverage does not equal expanded care, it will be a net loss to Alabama!

Top 5 Most Disrespectful Democrats Benghazi Quotes

Here are the top 5 most disrespectful and dismissive quotes about Benghazi from Democrats - and 3 of them happened today!

1. Barack Obama: "If four Americans get killed, it's not optimal." (October 18, 2012)

2. Hillary Clinton: "At this point, what difference does it make?" (January 23, 2013)

3. Nancy Pelosi: "Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi — why aren’t we talking about something else?" (May 1, 2014)

4. NSC spokesman Tommy Vietor: "Dude, this was like two years ago." (May 1, 2014)

5. Jay Carney: "Let's be clear. Benghazi happened a long time ago." (May 1, 2014)

Lest we forget, they are talking about the first assassination of a US Ambassador in the line of duty since 1979 Iran, as well as the murder of 3 other Americans. The disgusting displays of disrespect Democrats have shown toward the dead are shocking to even me! Somehow Democrats think the fact that the terror attack didn't happen yesterday means it doesn't matter. Maybe that strategy works with things like Jeremiah Wright or Bill Ayers, but it is a sick, cynical game to be playing with dead Americans. The Left has hit a new new low.
