Words, will they make a comeback?

We have a new sheriff in town.  Remember when mothers would tell their toddlers, "Use your words, not your fists."  We may regret that. Meanwhile. I think I've heard "Islamic terrorist" more in the last 2 weeks than the last 8 years.

There are over a million words in the English language, and it is global and borrows as needed. There are over 50 words just for sheep.  But in the U.S., the word police have thrown so many words at the wall, any wall, they no longer have any meaning.  Tolerance. Diversity. Privilege. Multicultural. Gender. Sex. Rape. Hunger. Poverty. Microaggression. Disparities. Justice. Fairness. Comprehensive. Invalidation. Underserved population. People of color. Traditional marriage. Hitler. Nazi. Orwell. Male. Female. . And a host of pronouns. . . (feminists killed the pronoun even before the transgender debate).  And now, all of a sudden, Democrats have discovered the Constitution, patriotism and the Bible.  Who knows where this could lead?
