In more Orwellian Newspeak from President Teleprompter’s Regime: There’s no such thing as terrorist attacks. We call them “man-made disasters” now. Because it’s less judgmental, this way. The word “terrorist” is harmful to the self-esteem of perpetrators.
SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word “terrorism.” Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?
Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word “terrorism,” I referred to “man-caused” disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.
When I read the term “man-made disaster,” I honestly first thought it must refer to President Teleprompter’s economic policies.
In other news of general Democrat abuse of language and policy, Nancy Pelosi calls enforcement of America’s immigration laws “Un-American.”
How do you like being governed by complete moonbats so far?
