List of ‘Forbidden Words’ Gets ‘Bigger’

by Edgar A. Perry

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL reports that “[t]he list of racially insensitive words just got bigger: Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kirk is drawing some criticism for a remark he made to fellow Republicans about the upcoming election. Kirk talked about ‘key, vulnerable precincts, for example, South and West sides of Chicago, Rockford, Metro East, where the other side might be tempted to jigger the numbers somewhat.'”

Alderman Freddrenna Lyle (pictured; and yes, that’s her real name), a Democratic Committee member, and others said they were offended by Kirk’s use of the verb “jigger” when “talking about regions heavily populated by Black voters”: “The problem I had is that it sounds so much like another word,”  the Rev. Albert Tyson stated.

The Journal said it well when adding “Some may say that Lyle and Tyson are too quick on the trigger, but surely it’s appropriate to apply rigor in combating the racism that for too long has left our country disfigured.”

My question: How will this affect A.A. Milne’s classic Pooh books that deal with “Tigger”?

The list of racially insensitive words just got bigger, reports Chicago's
WLS-TV:

	Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kirk is drawing some
	criticism for a remark he made to fellow Republicans about
	the upcoming election. . . .

	"These are lawyers and other people that will be deployed in
	key, vulnerable precincts, for example, South and West sides
	of Chicago, Rockford, Metro East, where the other side might
	be tempted to jigger the numbers somewhat" [Kirk said].

	"For him to insinuate that there is some vote fraud going on
	in these communities is just an insult to the hundreds and
	hundreds of people who serve as election judges on elections.
	I find it disgraceful and insulting," said Ald. Freddrenna
	Lyle.

	Lyle, a Democratic Committee member and an Alexi Giannoulias
	supporter, and others were offended by Kirk's use of the
	verb "jigger" when talking about regions heavily populated
	by black voters. . . .

	"The problem I had is that it sounds so much like another word,"
	Rev. Albert Tyson said.

Some may say that Lyle and Tyson are too quick on the trigger, but surely it's
appropriate to apply rigor in combating the racism that for too long has left
our country disfigured.

Listen: Turner Diaries commercial

OUR NEW, remastered audio book edition of The Turner Diaries read by the author, Dr. William Pierce, is now available. You can get your copy now — the CDs are are shipping as soon as orders come in.

The original recordings, made by Dr. Pierce and Kevin Strom on reel-to-reel tape in 1995, had been digitized in the early 2000s, but that digitization process was primitive compared to what we are capable of today; we have remastered this important work using the latest software — and we did it the careful, slow, difficult, craftsman-like way — the way Dr. Pierce would have wanted it.

We are proud to offer you the result, which can be ordered online via http://natall.com/td or by postal mail from National Alliance, Box 172, Laurel Bloomery TN 37680 USA. The fidelity of the disc is excellent: On a good speaker system, it sounds as if Dr. Pierce is with you, reading his book to you personally. There is nothing quite like hearing the man who created The Turner Diaries read it to you himself. And, by purchasing this mp3-CD, you will be supporting the important work of the National Alliance.

    Don’t be so niggardly with your rhymes. Ride onward and upward, like Roy Rogers did on Trigger. Go bigger with more vigor. I figure, though, that rhyming too much makes me sound like a whigger. But really I dig Freddrenna’s style, so call me a digger who’s been bit by a chigger. Ouch!

    This is so far out it’s hilarious. “ROTFL” is an overused chatbonics word, but it absolutely applied when I read this. Will Jewish groups like the SPLC take the cue and label anyone who uses the words “spike” or “tyke” or, God forbid, “like” as haters?

    Does this mean that I have to remove my “2012: Don’t Renege” bumper sticker now?

    I don’t know about all that, but Time magazine used “rejigger” and “Obama” in the same headline in 2008. (Though they changed “rejigger” to “reshaped” later.) See the link:

    Obama win rejiggers the race

    what happened to the 1st Amendment? We’re not allowed to used words anymore because it sounds like another one that some don’t like!

    getting to the point if you’re not a democrat, you’re a racist
