Forums - Politics Discussion - World gone mad - White House bans CDC from being factual

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reportedly received a list from the Trump administration on Dec. 14 consisting of seven words or phrases that will be banned in all official documents prepared for 2018’s budget. 

The seven forbidden words or phrases are: “evidence-based,” “science-based,” “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” and “fetus.” Regarding the ban on using “evidence-based” or “science-based,” the White House suggested the alternative: “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes.”

The wordy stand-in would require the CDC to allow the personal and emotional wants of the public to influence scientific-based decisions surrounding human health. Other banned words did not even have a suggested replacement.

 

This is absolutely insane. What else does this administration need to do to let people realize they’re batshit insane? They can start a genocide and people will still kiss their ass. 

The CDC is extremely valuable when it comes to understanding the statistical side  of many issues. With the NRA’s hit against them and now this limit, it’s clear they’re just trying to avoid the truth.

That sounds like common sense to me .



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

They really want to turn everything back to how it was decades ago.



best news in ages.

Well they're afraid of science and facts because it may contridict the beliefs of their imaginary sky daddy who says otherwise



Trump is trolling progressives with that and it will probably push a good bit of them to act a fool.



Straight out of 1984 or a Simpsons episode.



Now that's some *redacted* that you wouldn't *redacted* in *redacted* *redacted* 1945.

Sorry, the White House forbade me from using certain words.
Also, I wanted to type another paragraph, but Ajit Pai is charging me an extra $4.99 to continue my free trial of Social Media.

What? Of course it’ll piss people off. It’s literally banning key terms that will make a plethora of subjects exponentially more difficult to write about (or even write about).

 

A man who’s supposedly pro life shouldn’t block fetus, especially considering how they are vital to understanding how to stop several illnesses
