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.

Justin Trudeau has told a woman at a university event in Edmonton to say "peoplekind" rather than "mankind."

"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

White supremacist create (or rather claim to have revived) a whole new vocabulary.

Derived from “linguistic purism,” an idea that dates to the 16th and 17th centuries, Anglish is the English language either expunged of words with Latinate or Greek origins, or with those words completely reimagined with deference to Germanic roots.

According to the  the Anti-Defamation League words like “globalist” and “globalism” don’t really mean anything. They are simply Nazi code words for “the Jews.” There is actually no such thing as “globalism,” or “global capitalism,” or “transnational capitalism,” or “supranational quasi-governmental entities” Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the ADL, verified that “the term ‘globalist’ was developed and originated in extremist circles populated by white supremacists

Peter Beinart, writing in The Atlantic, explained that “globalist” is “an epithet … a modern-day vessel for a slur” against the Jews.

CNN’s Don Lemon, explained that “it is shorthand for a worldview based on racism, xenophobia, and anti-Semitism” … the worldview of “far right conspiracy theorists obsessed with prominent Jews like George Soros.”
