Radical Agenda EP264 – Grammar
Here at the Radical Agenda, we pride ourselves on our command of the English language. Written or spoken, words are kind of important, especially when we try to deal with things on such a scale as the United States government. If we can’t communicate, we’re on the sure path to conflict. So if everybody is speaking a different language, this does not bode well for civilization.
Now whenever there is something very important to the healthy functioning of society, leftists are never far behind to try and destroy it. The right has complained for years about leftists changing the definition of words. What used to be a sexual advance is now a sexual assault. A “well regulated militia” became the National Guard. Racism hardly even has a definition anymore, and don’t even get me started on “general welfare”.
Now they have come for the language itself. The University of Washington at Tacoma Writing Center announced last Friday that they would be focusing their efforts on “antiracism and social justice” instead of their traditional role of actually teaching writing. “Linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent ‘standard’ of English,” the center wrote. “Language is constantly changing. These two facts make it very difficult to justify placing people in hierarchies or restricting opportunities and privileges because of the way people communicate in particular versions of English.”
This is the leftist pattern for everything. As soon as there exists some demographic disparity in performance, it must be labeled bigoted. Once it is labeled bigoted, it must be altered. When the alterations failed to perform their alleged function, it must be abolished. And from institution to institution, they have marched on destroying everything that is good about our world, and they will not stop until we are all dead.
