Are YOU kidding me?

Prez Dictator has spoken! From now on there will be NO MORE words like fetus, transgender, diversity, vulnerable, and more, coming from the Center for Disease and Prevention.

Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”

In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or *“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.

The reaction of people in the meeting was “incredulous,” the analyst said. “It was very much, ‘Are you serious? Are you kidding?’ ”

WHEN, in the history of this country, has an administration banned certain vocabulary words, particularly from an agency whose job is to protect us from deadly outbreaks, infectious diseases and public health issues??
God forbid we should educate ourselves, using ADULT vocabulary. So, maybe from now on the CDC will refer to all imminent health concerns as COVFEFES??

Here's another article: Dr. Loren Schechter, director of the Center for Gender Confirmation surgery at Weiss Memorial Hospital in Chicago and a member of the board of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, said he was shocked by the edict.

“I’m not sure what the ultimate rationale is for doing this aside from trying to erase certain types of people off the map,” he told HuffPost, referring to the ban on the words “transgender” and “diversity.”

“I think walking back hard-earned civil rights is something that is, number one, quite shocking to me and, number two, quite concerning. Simply choosing to ignore reality, science, medicine, will not make these things go away and will not really advance anyone’s cause or lead to improved health outcomes.”

“This is quite an absurdity,” Schechter said. “The president sets the agenda. It’s quite scary ... it really sends a chill down your spine. I can’t imagine how you don’t allow terms to be used. It’s sort of like the thought police here.

Tweets: Twitter erupted following the news. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) complained that Trump is “making America stupid again” and wondered if leaders would soon be supporting voodoo and leeches to fight disease. A tweet from Planned Parenthood said the Trump administration has “disdained” women’s health, the LGBTQ community and science from the start.


@tedlieu
The @realDonaldTrump Administration is MAKING AMERICA STUPID AGAIN. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention banned from using "science-based" and "evidence-based" terms. Are we now going to use Voodoo & leeches to treat diseases?

“Banning valid terminology from government reports is both ignorant and dangerous,” Arthur Caplan, professor of bioethics at New York University’s School of Medicine, told HuffPost in an email. “Not since Lysenko and Stalin has government made hate, malice and duplicity official policy. The Trump administration with its seven-dirty-words policy has now elevated lying to a national standard.

“We cannot replace truth with bias — the nation cannot survive a steady diet of bullshit.”

Pity that the diseases that like to kill us don't give a crap about 'community standards and wishes'!

Is this any worse than the CDC being forbidden by law to study gun deaths/injuries?

OH! I didn't realize that was a proclamation/edict/directive handed down from the sitting president to a government agency.

Can you provide a link?

Can you observe the obvious? Did Obimbo direct his staff to stop calling illegal aliens, illegal aliens and start calling them undocumented immigrants? As though that made them less criminal.

A weak deflection to derail this thread. This is today’s version of book burning. Banning the CDC and their scientific works from using words on political grounds. And to think that these same right wingers defended the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville on the basis of “free speech”. These people are truly deplorable in every sense.

That's a good point, but it didn't happen due to presidential prohibitions.

Do you have anything to back up that allegation?
