Are you kidding me?

CNN has decided it’s not enough to jump on the woke bandwagon. No, the liberal news network wants to become the arbiter of what words are now considered racist.

Where was their outrage when Barack Obama was president?

Click through to the end to see what “problematic” words CNN wants to be scrubbed from our lexicon.

(H/T The Daily Wire)

“Master Bedrooms/Bathrooms”

Master bedroom and master bathroom are common phrases in real estate, first used in 1926 — 60 years after the abolition of slavery.

As the words imply, they refer to the largest bedroom and bathroom in a given home.

CNN claimed that although “it’s unclear whether the term is rooted in American slavery on plantations, it evokes that history.”

Masters Tournament

One of professional golf’s four major tournaments, the Masters, is now in the crosshairs of CNN’s woke arbiters. The Masters has become synonymous with the best players in the game, legendary golfers, like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods.

The tournament’s name originated in 1934. But apparently, it’s only “problematic” now.

Grandfather Clause

CNN argued that the term grandfather clause disenfranchised black voters who weren’t ostensibly granted the right to vote until 1870. Although it originated in a time of pervasive racism, the phrase itself isn’t inherently racist.

For lefties, here it’s meaning:

Grandfather clause —

A clause exempting certain classes of people or things from the requirements of a piece of legislation affecting their previous rights, privileges, or practices.

Peanut Gallery

Like grandfather clause, CNN’s newsroom wants to relegate the phrase “peanut gallery” to the ash heap of history. The phrase refers to cheap seats or hecklers, so what’s CNN’s problem? Their article argues truthfully that African Americans were historically relegated to second-tier seats.

However, the phrase was popularized in the 1940s and 1950s by Howdy Doody when joking around with his rambunctious child audience.

Are any of these words or phrases problematic to you, or has the far-left truly gone a bridge too far? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

THIS IS LIKE THE MOVIE THE SHINNING WHERE THE NUTS “NOW THE SNOWFLAKES” TAKE OVER THE ASYLUM AND ORWELLIAN POLITICAL CORRECTNESS BECOMES THE NORM. AND THE JOKE IS THAT THE REST OF US ARE LETTING IT HAPPEN.

The blacks have been doing this for decades. Looking for and finding offense where no offense was intended.
They also take our words and pervert them.
Gay.
Rainbow.
Diversity.
They even claim to be Christian when there is nothing in their lives that is like Christ.
