Our Own Government is Canceling Founding Fathers
The Cancel Culture has crept its way into our own government agencies.
As if the Cancel Culture even existing in the first place wasn’t bad enough, now we’ve got to deal with it within our own government agencies.
The Federal Reserve has been telling its employees to stop using gender-specific terms which are “biased” and to instead use more “inclusive” words. Even the phrase “Founding Fathers” is being targeted in this new insanity.
According to the Federal Reserve, they have advised to, “Try to avoid words and phrases that may be considered offensive, pejorative, or prejudiced (whether consciously or unconsciously), as these can distract your audience from the ideas/information you’re trying to convey.”
“Bias-free language recognizes diversity and avoids stereotyping, demeaning, or excluding people on the basis of gender, race, ethnic group, religion, age, ability/disability, or sexual orientation,” the guidance states.
“Try to avoid words and phrases that may be considered offensive, pejorative, or prejudiced (whether consciously or unconsciously), as these can distract your audience from the ideas/information you’re trying to convey,” it continues.
The guidance contains a list of “biased terms” to avoid, including “blacklist,” “grandfathered,” and “Founding Fathers.” Employees are instructed to use terms like “denied,” “legacy,” and “Founders” instead.
The Fed also said the terms “whitelisted, “manpower,” “manmade,” and “singular generic pronouns” – such as “he,” she,” “his,” and “hers” – should be replaced with more “bias-free” alternatives like “allowed,” “artificial,” and pronouns such as “they,” “their” and “theirs.”
Our Founding Fathers would be rolling over in their graves and headed for their muskets if they knew what kind of garbage is going on right now with out country.
There is nothing biased or sexist or anything about the phrase “Founding Fathers” because that’s exactly what they are! They’re not founding mothers. They’re not just Founding people. We’re referring to them as such because they are male human beings. It’s not an offense to be a male.
