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.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
