Colorado State University is Encouraging Students to Stop Using the Word “American”

Published

on

The thought controllers at Colorado State University believe that “American” is a non-inclusive word that should not be used.

CSU’s online Inclusive Language Guide, which CSU’s Inclusive Communications Task Force compiled, list specific words and phrases to avoid while searching for alternative words in an effort to help “communicators practice inclusive language and [help] everyone on [its] campus feel welcomed, respected, and valued.”

For CSU, “American” and “America” are non-inclusive words that must be avoided because America encompasses more than just the U.S. By using America to refer to the U.S., the guide asserts that the word “erases other cultures and depicts the United States as the dominant American country.” Instead, the school suggests the use of U.S. citizen” or “person from the U.S.” as alternatives.

CSU claims that its guide listing terms and phrases that must be avoided is “not an official policy or required practice.” Instead, it “is intended as a resource to help our campus community reflect our Principles of Community, particularly inclusion, respect, and social justice.”

Additionally, the guide states, “The guide is not about political-correctness or policing grammar, but rather helping communicators practice inclusive language and helping everyone on our campus feel welcomed, respected, and valued.”

Azhar Majeed, a spokesman for the free speech organization Foundation for Individual Rights in Education sees the potential for this guide to abuse free speech. He told Campus Reform that this “guide certainly does encompass a great deal of everyday, common expressions, and it is possible that the speech of some students will be chilled if they are confused into thinking that the document represents official policy of the university.”

The FIRE spokesman continued, “However, given the introductory language…I think it would be unlikely that any student carefully reading the guide would be mistaken and led to believe they could face disciplinary action for their speech.”

Nicole Neilly echoed similar sentiments, stating that “even though these guidelines are suggested and not mandatory, they place students in the uncomfortable position of reciting politically correct talking points that they may not agree with. Words like ‘American,’ ‘male,’ and ‘female’ are used every day by billions of people around the world. When these students graduate, they’re in for a rude awakening!”

With firm leftist control, university campuses nationwide have become breeding grounds for political correctness culture. By letting this culture thrive, free speech gradually dies and the Left continues to cement its power by destroying dissent.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
