New Rule: Words Matter | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)

Bill Maher lists his 8 words (or phrases) people should stop redefining:  hate, victim, hero, shame, violence, survivor, phobic, and white supremacy.  I'll add a 9th:  oppressor.

At 7:34 he says, "You can try to change reality by changing the words, but you can't.  It just stops you from dealing with it."

Then he quotes one of "the bad guys" from Orwell's 1984:  The whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought. 

Yep! to both.

It is so hard to believe that Bill Maher is actually saying things that I can get behind and support. Hard to believe the Left hasn't cancelled him yet.

Whoever would've guessed that HE would be the voice of reason?!
