(Yeah, right -- like that will ever happen.)
Those novels were supposed to be warnings, and not instruction manuals.

The vast majority will pay this no attention and are not buying into this idiocy.

That awkward moment when Wikipedia has more credibility on a word origin than an a college policy in an SJW mode.

Default Insanity The Left Brainwashing The Young; Words ‘America,’ ‘Americans’ Are Offensive

And their buying into it... No doubt about it the Left is evil and they’re destroying the nation.

Quote:
According to Colorado State University’s “Inclusive Language Guide,” students are advised to avoid the words “America” and “American.” Why exactly has the university deemed these words offensive? The guide argues that these words erase “other cultures and depicts the United States as the dominant American country.”

So, because that happen at the University, then it's wide spread everywhere? I never heard of that until now. And I doubt most people of the left keeps up with what's going on at a school in a different state. That's not an issue where I live down south. You the one doing the job of putting it out there, because I never heard that before, and I'll be checking around to see if anyone else around here have heard of that.
