While Barack Obama has unilaterally determined Americans have the “right” to use whatever bathroom they wish, he’s just signed a billed that restricts the use of certain speech.
What kind of speech? Well, words that offend liberals, of course.
Barack Obama signed a law that would remove allegedly offensive descriptors of minorities, such as referring to individuals as “Spanish speaking,” from all federal laws.
The bill, H.R. 4238, amends the Department of Energy Organization Act and the Local Public Works Capital Development and Investment Act of 1976, which apparently define minorities using “offensive” terms.
The terms that will be eliminated include “Negro, Puerto Rican, American Indian, Eskimo, Oriental, or Aleut or is a Spanish speaking individual of Spanish descent.”
Um, Obama might want to acquaint himself with the huge non-profit United Negro College Fund, which raised tens of millions of apparently un-offended donors every year. And will the term “Eskimo pie” be banned too?
Instead, the government will now use the more politically correct terminology, “Asian American, Native Hawaiian, a Pacific Islander, African American, Hispanic, Puerto Rican, Native American, or an Alaska Native,” when referring to the same people.
Wait…WHAT? How on Earth can “Puerto Rican” be both eliminated and now the new politically correct term? As if the bill wasn’t screwed up enough.
And — incredibly — the bill allows for the Federal government to spend what is estimated to be billions of dollars needed to replace the “offending” words in tens of millions of signs and documents currently in use.
So with such financial waste, you would think Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan would have opposed it, right? Not on your life. The bill was authored by Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY), and promoted by Obama, but was sent right to the floor for passage — thanks to some major help from Ryan and his committee chairmen.
So with illegal aliens pouring across the border in record numbers, Obama importing tens of thousands of unvetted Muslim “refugees” and our veterans getting the shaft — all issues the Congress is ignoring — they have plenty of time to play Social Justice Warriors, and dance to Obama’s tune.
Expect a forthcoming bill banning the use of “traditional” gender pronouns, such as “he” and “she,” as those apparently are now becoming offensive in our PC-run-amok culture.
