Have you also noticed the manipulative language(from the left) also used.They call people who are against illegal immigration:"Anti-Immigrants".The U.S. takes in 1.2 million legal immigrants a year yet the left wants to label all Americans as "Anti-Immigration".

It's all part of the control grid being erected with the divide and conquer technic, all this can be traced back to England. The Bank left a trail of bread crumbs right back to it's door, look where the surveillance camera system being implemented around the world originated from. Political correctness is just another form of mind control to be used to herd the masses.

Our rulers are paranoid and creating a world wide loony bin trying to hold on to their ill gotten gains.

News 12 New Jersey reporter suspended after on-air comments on ‘young black men’: report

A TV news reporter who blamed "anti-cop mentality" on "young black men growing up without fathers" in a shocking on-air report has reportedly been suspended.
Jersey City police officer Melvin Santiago was shot and killed responding to an armed robbery. Jersey City Police Jersey City police officer Melvin Santiago was shot and killed responding to an armed robbery.

The comments made by News 12 reporter Sean Bergin followed Sunday's tragic shooting death of New Jersey police officer, Melvin Santiago. The suspected cop killer was described as boasting that he was "going to be famous" moments after the killing.

"We were besieged, flooded with calls from police officers furious that we would give coverage to the life of a cop killer," said Bergin at the start of his surprise editorial.

His retort to the outrage, however, was to blame it on the suspect's race.

"The underlying cause for all of this, of course: young black men growing up without fathers. Unfortunately, no one in the news media has the courage to touch that subject," he said.

THE NEWS JERSEY REPORTER WHO SPARKED A MEDIA FIRESTORM WHEN HE BLAMED ABSENT FATHERS FOR AN "ANTI COP MENTALITY AMONG BLACKS HAS QUIT THE STATION!

"There's no doubt that I went off the reservation," Sean Bergin told Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, using an idiom many Native Americans consider derogatory. "I made a couple of rogue remarks at the end. I knew what I was doing."

News 12 of New Jersey suspended Bergin after he made the controversial comments about African-American homes while covering the shooting death of 23-year-old Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago for voicing his opinion rather than staying objective.

Soon after, he quit.


HERES THE KICKER THOUGH!!

But some might be surprised the ousted journalist would use a saying like "off the reservation" while trying to clear up accusations of racism.

That expression grew out of a sad chapter in our nation's history when the U.S. government confined Native Americans to reservations and harshly limited their freedoms. In fact, Native Americans could have faced harsh punishments — or even death — for leaving reservations.

Nowadays, people use "off the reservation" to convey going beyond the boundaries set by one's leader or group, often without thinking about its origin.

"The issue with 'off the reservation' and similar phrases is that these things are said without any thought. They become a part of the common vernacular," Andrew Bentley wrote in a blog for the nonprofit National Relief Charities back in 2012. He finds the term offensive and is troubled by the way some use it so glibly.

Others think sensitivity to expressions like “off the reservation’ is just another example of the "PC police" running wild.

FAKE REDSKINS CONTROVERSY CONTINUES

Postby The » Thu Aug 21, 2014 3:44 pm

Longtime NFL referee Mike Carey asked out of working Redskins games out of objection to ‘disrespectful’ name

While the Washington Redskins continue to fight challenges to change their long-time nickname, one former referee was quietly protesting against the team for years.

Mike Carey, who officiated games for 24 years before retiring in 2013, told the Washington Post he told the NFL he didn’t want to work the Redskins’ home or away games because of their disrespectful nickname.

“Human beings take social stances,â€￾ said Carey, the first African-American referee to work a Super Bowl, told the Post. “And if you’re respectful of all human beings, you have to decide what you’re going to do and why you’re going to do it.

“In America we’ve learned that respect is the most important thing that you have. I learned it from my parents, my schools, from my faith. And when you learn there’s something that might not be as respectful as you like, when you come to terms with it, you have to do something about it.â€￾

“I know that if a team had a derogatory name for African-Americans, I would help those who helped extinguish that name. I have quite a few friends who are Native Americans. And even if I didn’t have Native American friends, the name of the team is disrespectful.â€￾

The NFL apparently had no problem with his request, as the Washington Post research showed that Carey didn’t work a Redskins game after Week 1 of the 2006 season.

“The league respectfully honored my request not to officiate Washington,â€￾ he said. “When they were making assignments, I said I’d like to be excluded from those assignments.â€￾

Carey added that he never talked to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about the matter, instead going through the league office.

Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has said numerous times in the past that he will not be pressured into changing the nickname.


IF THE NFL OR DANIEL SNYDER CHANGES THE REDSKINS NAME DUE TO THE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS NAZIS, THE NFL CAN KISS MY VIEWERSHIP GOODBYE! I'LL HAVE OTHER THINGS TO DO ON MY SUNDAY AFTERNOONS

"The issue with 'off the reservation' and similar phrases is that" blah blah blah


Coincidentally enough, the article above just illustrated one of my all-time worst pet peeves about PC: the deliberate, and absolutely Orwellian IMO, replacement of the word "problem" with "issue", and the subsequent chucking of "problem" down the ol' memory-hole.

We used to say "problem", before America became one gigantic psychotherapist's office at some point back in the 1990s...

NY DAILY NEWS TO STOP USING REDSKIN NAME

http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/09/04/daily-news-to-stop-using-redskins-name-logo/

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A group campaigning for the Washington Redskins to change their name is sending a letter to broadcasters requesting that Redskins not be uttered on the public airwaves.

The letter was released Wednesday and is signed by more than 100 Native American, religious and civil rights organizations. It’s being sent by the Change the Mascot movement headed by the Oneida Indian Nation of New York.

The letter describes “redskinâ€￾ as a “government-defined racial slurâ€￾ that has been used to disparage American Indians “throughout history.â€￾

Several prominent broadcasters, including Bob Costas and Phil Simms, have either spoken out against the name or say they don’t intend to use it.


Also Wednesday, the New York Daily News announced it will no longer refer to the team as the “Redskinsâ€￾ on its sports pages. The paper also said it will stop using the team’s Indian-head logo.

“Enormously popular and deeply ingrained in sporting culture, the Redskins name is a throwback to a vanished era of perniciously casual racial attitudes,â€￾ the paper said. “No new franchise would consider adopting a name based on pigmentation — Whiteskins, Blackskins, Yellowskins or Redskins — today. The time has come to leave the word behind.â€￾

Redskins owner Dan Snyder says he’ll never change the name. He calls it a source of pride for Native Americans.

“While the team ownership and many fans hold such a belief in good faith, the inescapable truth is that the term Redskin derives solely from the racial characteristic of skin tone in a society that is struggling mightily to be color-blind,â€￾ the Daily News said.

The paper said it would only publish the team’s name “in reader letters about the controversy and in quotations in stories about the controversy when a full quotation seems particularly relevant.â€￾ It will also appear online — for now — on pages “provided by vendors.â€￾

“Why drop the term now? Why not yesterday or last year? The answer is that, as attitudes evolve, words can move from common parlance to unacceptable in good company,â€￾ the paper said.


Im losing more and more interest in the NFL and this country everyday....There losing me as a fan...
