Newspeak in America: Thug is Now a Racist Term

English writer Eric Arthur Blair who is more famous for his pseudonym George Orwell is often invoked as America continues to collapse from within. Orwell’s dire predictions of a totalitarian future dystopia as put forth in his masterpiece “1984” eerily foresaw the rise of a society in which no opposition to fascist big government was tolerated, citizens were turned into rats and snitches, war was perpetual and privacy was eradicated to the point of where “nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull”. Orwell’s novel also introduced the concept of “Newspeak” which was the intentional manipulation of the language to literally transform reality into what the state deemed to be acceptable which was in direct opposition to anything resembling freedom.

As anyone who is paying attention can clearly see in the Homeland of Obamastan circa 2015, the wars continue, the NSA and government favored corporations conduct mass surveillance on the population and the range of acceptable discourse shrinks daily. Then there is the perversion of language which combined with the ongoing process of the dumbing down of America is a potent one-two punch to whatever remains of our evaporating vestiges of liberty.

The transformation of language in America is often the result of the rise of the censorship called political correctness and is typically enforced by liberals who fancy themselves as being some sort of intellectual elite instead of the feckless drones that they really are. Their efforts only aid and abet the rulers of the fascist police state and their alarmingly successful attempts to slowly twist and morph the definition of “terrorism” to include all critics of the corrupt state. They work in tandem although the useful idiot liberals can’t seem to understand it.

The latest example of the perversion of the English language are the ludicrous and quickly spreading attempts to transform the word “thug” into a racist term and to render it taboo. This is particularly evident in the aftermath of the Baltimore riots when a pack of thugs and criminals exploited the Freddie Gray funeral to run amok. As disturbing as this latest outbreak of racially tinged malevolence has been, what is worse are the attempts to glom onto it by many to advance their own agendas. They are much like the travelers and parasites who leeched onto the XXXL carcass of bad seed Michael “Gentle Giant” Brown in Ferguson, Mo last year and manage to pop up in whatever city where the police are accused of using excessive force against young black men.

A term used by President Barack Obama and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to characterize rioters has given new life to a debate over the word "thug."
"Of course it's not the right word, to call our children 'thugs,'" Baltimore City Councilman Carl Stokes told CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront." "These are children who have been set aside, marginalized, who have not been engaged by us. No, we don't have to call them thugs."

"Just call them n-----s. Just call them n-----s," he said. "No, we don't have to call them by names such as that."

The Rev. Jamal Bryant drew the same comparison Wednesday morning on CNN. The President and the mayor are wrong, he said. "These are not thugs, these are upset and frustrated children."

"It's amazing. You don't call six police officers who kill a man without probable cause 'thugs,' but children who are frustrated and don't have an outlet, you call them 'thugs.' 'Thugs' is the 21st century word for the n-word. And it is repulsive and it is offensive to every person who is a parent trying to raise children interpreting what's taking place in this hour."

When even dear leader is calling a spade a spade and a thug a thug then it just must be racism and we just can’t have the public getting any ideas rather that those dark-skinned hooligans in the streets are lawless marauders. As for the word “thug” if you look at the Merriam-Webster online dictionary here is the definition:

noun \ˈthəg\
: a violent criminal
a brutal ruffian or assassin :  gangster, tough

There is nothing even remotely racial about it. In fact what the hell else can be said about the scum that took to the streets in Baltimore to ransack stores, destroy other people’s property and steal beer and toilet paper? They were thugs and there isn’t a damned thing that is racially offensive  in calling them such in the context of their actions. It is as clear as black and white.

Now that “thug” is on the verge of becoming a racist pejorative it shows the danger of the childish insistence of the refusal to use the word “nigger” in favor of the ubiquitous references to the “N word”. What the fuck is this, fucking third grade on a national level? When is enough enough? Not that I personally find the term “nigger” to be socially acceptable, no more than I do a gay man being called a “faggot”, however it is far more offensive to see the  ongoing bastardization of the English language by political correctness Nazis, slimy politicians, activists with an agenda and government stooges in the corrupt state-corporate media.

The hip hop culture that black youth are too often immersed in actually glorifies what can accurately be called “thug life” and why is it socially acceptable for many young blacks to regularly call themselves “niggers” or as is the hip slang “niggas”? This can be a career-killer, and have the scarlet letter of racism carved into the foreheads of white folks who don’t kowtow to political correctness and use the “N” word instead? The hypocrisy is boundless.
Always remember, Big Brother is watching you so watch what you say.
