These Completely Normal Words are Now Deemed Offensive by the Air Force

Sometimes, all you can do is shake your head.

First that, and now this?

Air Force leadership is proving it still has too many Obama PC-leftovers and has decreed that there are some words that are just too offensive to be uttered on or off the base.

An e-mail was sent out to Airmen at Joint Base San Antonio, according to Todd Starnes, and such innocuous words as “boy” and “girl” made the list. Here are a few more:

1.   Boy

2.   Girl

3.   You People

4.   Colonial

5.   Blacklist

6.   Blackmail

7.   Blackball

8.   Sounds Greek to me

9.   Blondes have more fun

10. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians

A senior Air Force leader wrote the e-mail which was also sent out to other personnel at Lackland Air Force Base and were warned the words on the list “may be construed offensive.”

The e-mail stated: “Please be cognizant that such conduct is 100 percent zero tolerance in or outside of the work climate. Let’s capitalize on our richly diverse climate, and help others seek assistance if they are struggling with compliance.”

Starnes reached out to the public affairs spokesperson to verify the list and was told the list isn’t an official Air Force requirement but “sent out by an individual simply reminding Airmen to be respectful to others.” Wait… “Airmen” wasn’t on the list? Shouldn’t that be “Airperson?”

Thank goodness Defense Secretary James Mattis is now on board to knock out these Obama leftovers and get our military back on the right track. It’s obvious with the nude photo scandal rocking all branches of the U.S. military that a list of banned words doesn’t encourage respect for others. Perhaps this is proof that too much time is spent on the wrong things.
