Video of the Day: Tucker Carlson says San Francisco’s word ban is intended to control thought

On Friday, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson addressed a recent Orwellian edict in the poop-infested city of San Francisco, California.

According to the report, the city has decided that the best way to deal with crime is to change the language so residents apparently won’t notice the crime on the streets.


Carlson notes:

So last month, the city’s Board of Supervisors decreed that there’ll be no more “convicted felons” in San Francisco. Going forward, ex-cons are to be called, “justice-involved individuals.”  Well, as it happens, the people they committed crimes against are also  “justice-involved individuals.”

So, in other words, victim and criminal are now morally indistinguishable. That’s on purpose. This is woke equality.

But there’s a problem. Back in Washington, leaders of the Democratic Party apparently haven’t gotten the memo on this, and some are still using the term “felon,” which is the real “F” word.

He further noted:

Meanwhile, back in the city of San Francisco, there are no longer any “juvenile delinquents.” The whole category has disappeared. Criminals under 18 are now referred to as “young people impacted by the juvenile justice system” — as if the system, and not the kid, committed the crime, which is what the left in fact believes. It’s your fault, not theirs. Check your privilege, Middle America.

Drug addicts, meanwhile, in San Francisco are now called “people with the history of substance use.” “Use,” not “abuse.” Get it? Heroin addicts are now the same as insulin-dependent diabetics; both use “substances.” You can’t call one better than the other. They’re both exactly the same.

And, he added:

Language makes thought possible. When the words disappear, so does our ability to think about the ideas the words represent.

George Orwell addressed this in his classic, “Nineteen Eighty Four.”

Here’s the video:

Carlson is 100 percent correct.  God help us…
