Latest PC euphemism worthy of The Onion

Posted by Richard on January 11, 2019

We’re not even halfway through January and we already have a strong candidate for the politically correct euphemism of the year. Via Twitchy:

Earlier this week, a New Jersey man shot and killed an armed intruder in his home.

Sorry, did we say “armed intruder”? Thanks to NBC New York, we now know that “unwanted house visitor” is the correct term:

Well, the PC crowd has already established that illegal aliens should be called undocumented immigrants. Calling a home invasion an unwanted house visit seems like a logical next step for them. Here are some other PC euphemisms for crimes that they may want to consider:

Murder: involuntary end-of-life services

Carjacking: impromptu ride sharing with extreme prejudice

Mugging: unauthorized wealth redistribution

Rape: unrequested sperm donation

Kidnapping: involuntary relocation

Counterfeiting: freelance fractional-reserve banking

  1. I think “counterfeiting” should be “Federal Reserve Bank impersonation”. But that’s just me.

    Unrequested works for all of those and is much less triggering.

    OTOH “Unrequested Wealth redistribution” is a pretty good description of taxation. Oh wait, it wasn’t unrequested, just not by me.

    I saw somewhere that rape was an “unwanted vagina visitor”.

    I like every one of these. They fit in so well with Dewey’s definition of political correctness that I have come to know and love. For those who may not have heard or read it, I present it here for your edification: Political correctness is… “A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a TURD by the clean end.”
