    The publicly funded University of Michigan has launched a $16,000 campaign, warning students not to use “unacceptable words” that might be “offensive” and not “inclusive.” Students are also asked to sign a pledge to use inclusive language and work with their peers to help them understand the “issues.”
    It’s not that far of a leap from something like this to warnings not to deviate from “allowed” political opinions.

    Dozens of posters plastered across the University of Michigan caution students not to say things that might hurt others’ feelings, part of a new “Inclusive Language Campaign” at the state’s flagship public university that cost $16,000 to implement.
    Words declared unacceptable through the campaign include “crazy,” “insane,” “retarded,” “gay,” “tranny,” “gypped,” “illegal alien,” “fag,” “ghetto” and “raghead.” Phrases such as “I want to die” and “that test raped me” are also verboten.

    University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald told The College Fix in an email the campaign aims to “address campus climate by helping individuals understand that their words can impact someone and to encourage individuals to commit to creating a positive campus community.”ILCinside
    Students have been asked to sign a pledge to “use inclusive language” and to help their peers “understand the importance of using inclusive language,” according to campaign materials.
