This is a perfect example of speech codes (Political Correctness) in action: it is doing what it has been designed to do.
And yes, PC speak and speech codes are not an accidental by-product of some peoples’ desire to be uber nice. No, not at all. This was a specifically designed tool of Cultural Marxism, one purpose of which (among others) was to get people to pay more attention to the way things were expressed in speech than the substance of what was being said.
If you are unfamiliar with Cultural Marxism, I recommend a guest-post here by CodeSlinger a while back.
Long story short: for way too many of our ‘intellectuals’, using the correct buzzwords will get them to completely miss the substance of the message…
