WATCH OUT: CNN Declares the Following Words ‘Racist’

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!

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.

If you are a believer you could call yourself a slave to Christ. Or if a non believer you are a slave to sin. Now the liberals now calling the bible a book of hate. There is no end to how they (democrats) want to change the meaning of our words to say what they (democrats) want them to say.

The most racist term in America today is Democrat Party. We fought them in the Civil War to free slaves. After they lost, they created the KKK. Google strange fruit billie holiday. Then they created and enforced Jim Crow Laws. They even voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Democrat Party is racist term that really needs to be eraced.

That was GOOD!! So if CNN can declare the word “master” to be racist then I, with the same degree of authority over language, hereby declare the complementary words “slave” and “slavery” to be equally racist. Now we ought to have some interesting discussions. For example, “We want reparations,” For what? ” Uh, well my ancestors were slaves.” Uh oh, you can’t say THAT! You are obviously a racist for using language like that!”

It is so stupid that I don’t even think CNN could be serious about it. I think is a trick to get Trump to tweet something dumb about CNN, which will be more publicity for them and maybe give them another arguable basis to engage in their full0-time activity — attacking Trump.

CNN is an enemy of the people. It is hard to believe that anybody watches their lies and deceit. They are an arm of the Democrat party and are complicit in trying to undo this country.
Watch any country that has fallen under tyranny and you will see the same playbook was used in their downfall.

The Catholic church in the 1600’s made female master-bation (doing the devils worK) a punishable crime, where nuns would flogg their offending body part, to rid the devil of its possession. Will the Catholic Nun Network be hiring manly looking female punishers to keep their newsroom females from master-ing themselves to exhaustion when frustrated over what next to Blame Trump for, unautherized master-bation (devil work) will no longer be tolerated.

When I first came to this country in the late 60’s I found my English language somewhat different here….so innocently I asked why do Americans not speak American? It seemed logical to me at the time then we all would realize that there was a difference so as not to make any faux pas. Well, you should have heard the outrage that caused. No-one it seemed wanted to call what they speak “American”. That has always puzzled me and all the more now with CNN trying to change the language I really do wish Americans would speak American and leave the language of my birth alone because at this age folks I ‘ain’t gonna’ change and God help ANYONE who tries to make me.

The way that I learned for to speak and to write in the 1950’s is not problematic. It is the Clinton News Network (CNN) that is problematic. Orwellian Newspeak is not my language. Political Correctness is not my religion. Left-wing fascist tyranny is not my politics. CCN propaganda is not my news source.

So the CNN PEANUT GALLERY wants to ban our GRANDFATHERING terms like MASTER bedrooms and bathrooms? Do they have any replacement suggestions?

Would it be that the BLACKS are the MAJORITY as whites are devils who don’t count, that white GRANDFATHERS must be terminated so BLACKS can be the MASTERS of the USSA?

I can ignore CNN, the NYT, the WaPo, MSNBC, and NPR. But I can’t ignore idiot Republicans who are now trying to “get ahead of the curve” and be even more outrageous than Democrats. Senator Braun (R-IN) proposing a bill to make it easier for rioters to sue police doing their jobs? Nuts!
Two Republican senators proposing a bill to replace Columbus Day with Juneteeneth as National Holidays?
Republicans hiding under their desks or trying to appear “woke” when they should be standing shoulder to shoulder with Donald Trump in defense of our great country. Republicans need to listen more to Candace Owens, and Thomas Sowell, and Allen West, and Bob Woodson and less to Marxist revolutionaries AOC, Tlaib, Omar, Pressley, Waters, and DeBlasio.
Trump Derangement Syndrome has ripped the mask off the Cultural Revolution, propelled by Communists since 1921, aimed at **destroying America** (“Burn it to the ground!”). And Democrats applaud them, supposing they can pick up the pieces after they bully their way into power. (How has that worked for Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, LA, Portland, Seattle, Dallas, Houston, New Orleans. . . . . . .? Third world cities, all of them.)
“Whom the gods would destroy, they first make insane.”
We see it before our very eyes.
