Another self-appointed language policeman reports for duty

Recently, the Sierra Club released its “Equity Language Guide,” to demonstrate its “commitment to equity, justice, and inclusion" by using "respectful, thoughtful language in all of our communications.” Sierra is on paper a ‘grassroots’ environmental organization whose goal is to ‘defend everyone’s right to a healthy world,’ yet Sierra’s website refers to diversity, inclusion, equity, race, etc.  Sierra supports reparations for Black people, claiming that it’s “impossible to create a healthy, safe, and sustainable planet without acknowledging and materially addressing the past and present economic, cultural, psychological, and spiritual impacts of racism.”

Sierra’s business model is virtue-signaling, which enables easy fundraising without any measurable proof of results. This is working in Sierra's favor; currently they have assets worth $79 million The ‘Equity Language Guide’ is a continuation of the inglorious tradition of shallow virtue-signaling.  The guide has recommendations based on various criteria such as ableism, ageism, classism, racial and gender identity, etc. The Guide urges people to refrain from words such as ‘stand,’ ‘blind,’ and even paralyzed...........To Read More....

My Take - The destruction of language is essential for leftist success, because definition leads to clarity, and that's the last thing leftists want...clarity!
