“Gutfeld!” Fries up Stanford’s list of harmful words like ‘American’: ‘Idiots run the show’

“Gutfeld!” The panelists angered Stanford University after they published a “language guide” that would remove terms like “American, peanut gallery, rogue and idiot” from the institution’s websites and code.

Host Greg Gutfeld spoke out, calling the removal of sexist and vague words “tongue castration”.

Stanford University said in a statement about the changes that the goal is to eliminate racist, violent and prejudiced language that could be harmful. The university has published categories that words can enter, including disability, gender-based, culturally appropriate, and institutionalized racism.

“Basket bag” was also on the broad list, as it once referred to a person without limbs that had to be carried in a basket.

“Ever since I commute to work on Bill Hemmer’s bike, I consider myself a basket case,” he joked on Wednesday.

“The thing that drives me crazy about this is the sheer number of these things, it wouldn’t matter if you didn’t know about it,” he said. “For example, I’ve never heard of the ‘basket bag’. … Now this image bothers me.”

Sonnie Johnson of “Sonnie’s Corner” argued that White supremacy is at the core of the problem and is driving change.

“They say ‘institutionalized speech,’ right? Then you look at who started it,” he explained. “And when they start saying grammar is racist, learning proper English is racist.”

“Well, the people who started institutionalized racism also made this grammar. So I think it’s all racist, so I don’t have to play by any of your goddamn rules.”

Financial analyst Heather Zumarraga warned that the trend to remove “harmful language” has spread beyond universities and academic settings to the business world, where she argues that even the term “ladies” will be banned.

“All these companies, their HR departments, they’re doing all these policies to protect their Butts. [political correctness] police,” he said, pointing to Disney’s “wake up” discussion and the reaction below as an example.

“I think it’s a bad business decision for the corporate world,” he said.

Fox News columnist Tyrus was quick to criticize Stanford’s decision, saying that “idiots” run the show, emphasizing that a team spent 18 months preparing the list.

“This is the stupidity of society,” he said. “When they start telling you what to say and what not to say, it’s time not to go to that school.”

“Time to run,” Gutfeld added.
