Politco Bans the Word ‘Crisis’ From Border Reporting – Okay, How About ‘Man-Caused’ Disaster, Instead?

Politico staffers have been told that the word crisis is not an accurate description of what has happened at our southern border. It’s as if some uppity-up at the White House – where they refuse to call it that – influences the watchdog media.

You don’t say?


“Avoid referring to the present situation as a crisis, although we may quote others using that language while providing context. While the sharp increase in the arrival of unaccompanied minors is a problem for border officials, a political challenge for the Biden administration and a dire situation for many migrants who make the journey, it does not fit the dictionary definition of a crisis,”


Rick Moran writing at PJ Media, adds,  “That is truly great news. When are they going to get around to using the “dictionary definition” of “racist” to describe the Georgia voting law?”

The Democrat dictionary is itself a great work of fiction, turning on the need to redefine the language or meaning for no purpose other than the retention or accumulation of political power.

It is why global warming (the earth-wide crisis) had to be rebranded as climate change (the earth stopped warming, but the band played on).

I empathize.

Much of the population alive today graduated before the Left had adequately dumbed-down public education. There are still too many people breathing who can rub two thoughts together absent the aid of a ruling state propagandist stooge doing business as the watchdog corporate media.

Lapdog is more like it, folks who were happy to reimaging foreign engagements as overseas contingency operations.

With that in mind, I have a suggestion. If the crisis at the border does not meed the media definition of crisis because it more than satisfies the dictionary definition, let’s use another Obama-Era turn of phrase, the man-caused disaster.

I realize it is gender-bigoted, but a more accurate definition could not exist. Joe Biden is a man. Just ask the female Secret Service agents forced to watch him swim nude when he was Obama’s President of Vice.  And Joe Biden causes this crisis disaster. This is a man-caused disaster.

One more observation.

Does this mean Politico will edit all the stories about the border and or the humanitarian crisis at the border in all those articles they wrote during the Trump Administration?

How about the rest of the lapdog media?
