Beyond Orwell: CDC Releases ‘Guiding Principles for Inclusive Communication’
“Language in communication products should reflect and speak to the needs of people in the audience of focus.”
The Centers for Disease Control is once again involving itself in an aspect of American life which is absolutely none of its business.
We have watched as the CDC inserted itself in everything from the eviction moratorium to the Superbowl. Now they want to control your language.
They just released an exhaustive list of words you shouldn’t use, in the name of health equity, whatever that is. Topics include drug abuse, healthcare, homelessness, economic status, immigration, race, sexual orientation, and more.
Here are a couple of examples:
Instead of this…
- Homeless people/the homeless
- Transient populations
- People experiencing homelessness
- Persons experiencing unstable housing/housing insecurity/persons who are not securely housed
- People experiencing unsheltered homelessness
- Clients/guests who are accessing homeless services
Non-U.S.-born Persons / Immigration Status
Instead of this…
- Illegal immigrants
- Illegal aliens
- Illegal migrants
- The foreign-born
- People with undocumented status
- Mixed-status households
- Immigrant, migrant
- Asylee or asylum seeker
- Refugee or refugee populations
- Non-U.S.-born persons/foreign-born persons
Race & Ethnicity
Instead of this…
- Referring to people as their race/ethnicity (e.g., Blacks, Hispanics, Latinos, Whites, American Indians, etc.)
- Referring to people as colored people, colored Indian (to refer to American Indian)
- Native American (for federal publications)
- The [racial/ethnic] community (e.g., “the Black community”)
- Non-White (used with or without specifying non-Hispanic or Latino)
- American Indian or Alaska Native persons/communities/populations
- Asian persons
- Black or African American persons; Black persons
- Native Hawaiian persons
- Pacific Islander persons
- White persons
- People who identify with more than one race; people of more than one race; persons of multiple races
Just look at the flowery way this is offered. “Are you using #inclusive language?”
Are you using #inclusive language? CDC’s Health Equity Guiding Principles for Inclusive Communication shares preferred terms and language. https://t.co/ppe64URTzx.

Can someone let the CDC know what’s the D stands for? https://t.co/4iVAmdq7Lt

Does the CDC have nothing better to do right now?
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
What a bunch of orifices of hindquarters!
They’re focusing on this crap instead of actually trying to end the “pandemic?”
I say we declare the pandemic over, COVID is no more than endemic (it just “is” so deal with it), and since these people are obviously afflicted by Cranial-Rectal Inversion Syndrome (Permanent) (CRISP), all CRISP-CDC funding is rescinded…forever.
With new agencies on the way because of all the new spending on the way, existing government agencies must grow by unilaterally expanding their so-called mission.
Seems purpose of almost all new government agencies, and now many existing ones, is to monitor and control the speech and behavior of Americans. And to control how people think.
They think that their purpose is to control disease and nearly everything involving liberty and freedom is a disease in need of control.
Oh, now now…! Rest assured the next Republican president will ask for a review of all government agencies, departments, bureaux, and commissions, and will see to it that those with no Constitutional basis will be shut down.
Reagan did it… oh, wait.
Bush the First did it… oh wait.
Bush the (factory) Second did it… oh wait.
Trump did it….
You get the idea.
Unfortunately, that is correct.
Who do these zero plan to lead when we have an ablity to communicate?
The Center for Inclusive Language Control is a very important part of an insane asylum.
People who disagree: Alt-right, extremist, terrorists, radicals.
And…. (cue dramatic Hammond organ chord sequence here)… WHITE!
Covid is obviously no longer an issue if they have time and resources to devote to this claptrap. That’s the message these clowns communicated. Good to know.
Radical left-wing totalitarian authoritarians are on the march. If government employed they don’t care what their real job is supposed to be. The Cause is their highest priority and what matters most.
Soon people will afraid to say anything other than the most leftist approved anodyne bromides, in fear of the consequences for saying the wrong thing.
Anyone who doesn’t conform or show sufficient enthusiasm for our Brave New Amerika will be labelled a selfish. mean, cruel, [fill-in-blank]-phobic, bigoted, misogynist (if male), dangerous racist. And be unable to work anywhere, bank anywhere, use the internet, or show their face in public (especially if not vaxxed). Their FBI file will be stamped ‘probable white supremacist’ and ‘potential domestic terrorist’. Tagged for reeducation and a stay in the new Amerikan Gulag after the next infraction.
By comparison the old Soviet Union and today’s Communist China will start to look like free speech oases.
They will eventually eat their own and destroy themselves. But not before they destroy — AKA ‘fundamentally transform’ — America.
The Center for Democrat Control has spoken.
If this is what the CDC is wasting their time on….why should I trust any of these buffoons with COVID-19 and boosters. They are evidently more concerned with pronouns and inclusivity than our health.
The government tried “public health” as the root password to the constitution… and it worked!
Now they realize they can do anything they want to do, as long as they funnel it through a “health agency” first.
Giving every tenant in the country free rent and stiffing the landowner — would you believe that? And it worked! (At least for a while.)
That is why we will begin seeing new diktats and wokeness emanating from our federal “health” agency.
Just remember, we borrowed money to pay for this drek.
We will be living under a public health crisis forever if we don’t utilize the second amendment. Don’t sit back and let them get away with it by waiting on NBC to do an expose on the fraud being perpetrated in our faces.

Hey CDC, how about spending some time and our tax payer dollars to investigate the over 13,000 deaths and over 600,000 adverse reactions related to the “safe” Covid vaccines instead of this foolishness.
The irony of “inclusiveness” is how it requires so many people to be told to “shut up!” Of course, white people, particularly men, are to be categorically excluded from all conversations.
This is why I say that the Dhimmi-crats much-lauded, self-congratulatory buzzwords of “Diversity and Inclusion”(TM) must be re-branded to what they actually represent — “Conformity and Exclusion.”
Only for lack of pushing back.
The Dhimmi-crats’ usually successful efforts to shape the national lexicon are not innocuous, at all. They are explicitly intended to promote and to advance the Dhimmi-crats’ contrived narratives and their totalitarian agenda. This linguistic chicanery is a tool of totalitarianism.
Reminded me of the great scene from the movie Airplane
Ms. Barbara Billingsley at her finest helping out the flight attendant. I speak jive.
Buck, thanks for the laugh.
Are you allowed to say, “UP YOURS!”
No replacement for stupid c*nt.
Instead of X try Y::
Homeless > Bums
Illegals > Invaders
Foreigners > Foreign Devils
Rochelle Walensky is a moron. She’s as big a lambrain as Biden, Milley, Austin, Harris and the like. And let’s not forget Pete Butthead.
I wouldn’t let her pop a pimple.
Sounds like they have decided that language is a disease.
“Guiding Principles for Inclusive communications”? Who, aside from bureaucrats and Ed D’s talk like that?
We are approaching maximum ideologically-inspired stupidity, bankruptcy and corruption, and either America will correct course and make progressivism largely irrelevant–or progressivism will make America largely irrelevant.
