RUSH: I have to tell you, it is so frustrating sometimes to watch TV. It just is. I'm sure you know. I just decided to turn on the audio on the TV during the commercial break, and a bunch of people are discussing this. It was frustrating to listen to the discussion. Even though their instincts were right, the rationale... Here's the story: "San Francisco's Board of Supervisors has rebranded the term 'convicted felon.'" You cannot talk about convicted felons as "convicted felons" in San Francisco. They are "justice-involved people." And other criminal behavior, the language to describe it is to be "sanitized."
"Crime-ridden San Francisco has introduced new sanitized language for criminals, getting rid of words such as 'offender' and 'addict' while changing 'convicted felon' to 'justice-involved person.' The Board of Supervisors adopted the changes last month even as the city reels from one of the highest crime rates in the country," and that's course why they're doing it! They've lost control us of civility in San Francisco! They've lost control of civilization. It's a crime-ridden, infested swamp, with piles of human feces on public sidewalks, homeless, tent cities everywhere! So the way to fix it is don't accurately describe it.
To listen to people discuss this and to be right about it but not get the reasons why is kind of frustrating.
