Spain’s prestigious language foundation Fundéu BBVA has chosen aporofobia - a fear and repudiation of poor people - as its word of the year.

Aporofobia can be roughly translated into English as peniaphobia, a fear of poverty and poor people.

"person" is politically incorrect too.  You have to say "peroffspring"

Liberal-communism or liberal-communists  Two opposite concept combined. Expressions spread by a bunch of ignorant without any political knowledge but emerging from the ideological arsenal of the capitalist society. Any pro-capitalist which advocates for certain social reform is a liberal communist including a member of the capitalist class, even more, a philanthropic Bill Gates is a  liberal communist
