In other words

Dear Editor,

Yet another back-to-the-future direction by the ever-backward President Donald Trump.

This time it takes it's cue from George Orwell's 1949 anti-utopian novel, 1984. In Orwellian lingo, it was referred to it as "Newspeak," the Big Brother Oceana language designed to diminish the range of thought by diminishing words.

The goal is by forbidding certain words, one can limit negative expression relative to specific subjects.

Taking this cue, the linguistically challenged Trump and his administration is limiting the words used by the nation's top public health agency.

In the ongoing dumbing of America, they have thus far forbidden seven words: diversity, entitlement, evidence-based, fetus, science-based, transgender and vulnerable.

We know that the least educated Americans relate to Trump and are his base, so this further “stupidification” of their country should only reinforce their support.
