President Joe Biden’s official budget proposal is proof that the lunatic woke fringe has made its way into the White House: In a section on plans to reduce maternal mortality rates, the document replaces the word “mother” with the absurd “birthing people,” which is supposed to be more trans-sensitive.
Questioned on the word choice, Office of Management and Budget Deputy Director Shalanda Young doubled down: “We think our language needs to be more inclusive,” she insisted.
Oops. Elsewhere, the budget uses the M-word, saying for example that paid leave will “keep mothers in the workforce.”
Heck, even the “birthing people” passages still use “maternal,” which literally means “of a mother.”
Of course, Biden himself has insisted on using the woke term “Latinx,” which most Latinos have never heard of and rings hopelessly off.
Sorry, Mr. President: You’re not going to unite the nation by insisting on a version of 1984’s Newspeak.
