“1,825 Words You Can Never Say On Facebook”

This is ominous: it’s the second time this month that I’ve had good reason to quote George. Did the Democrats already take over?

In 1972, the late George Carlin debuted his famous routine called “ “The Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television.” The words were: shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits, all of which you can hear on television today. (Who says life doesn’t keep getting better? ) But George would be fine: I have it on good authority that in Stand-Up Heaven, where Henny Youngman has St. Peter’s job, George is knocking celestial audiences dead (metaphorically, of course,) with his new monologue, “1,825 Words You Can Never Say On Facebook.”

It’s hilarious, if a little long.

The Foundation For Individual Rights In Education has released a report based on its investigation of how public universities—that’s the government, remember—engage in surreptitious censorship of student expression.  Censorship of student expression is illegal, but The FIRE exists because so many universities find that concept too complex to grasp.

Implicated in the results: Facebook, which provides  the tools for censorship, including its automated content filters. These allow state institutions to automatically “hide” users’ comments if they contain words included on Facebook’s undisclosed list of offensive words, or a government entity’s customized list of prohibited words. The filters allow  public universities to quietly remove critical Facebook posts, restricting open campus and public discourse.

The  FIRE surveyed over 200 public universities and colleges across 47 states and the District of Columbia. It found that fully half of the surveyed institutions  use Facebook’s “strong” profanity filter, while nearly a third use the “medium” filter. That means  about 77% of surveyed institutions use an undiclosed  blacklist of prohibited words. Nearly a third of the universities surveyed (59, or 30.3%) created a custom blacklist, collectively censoring 1,825  words and phrases in order to, among other unconstitutional objectives, “block animal rights activists’ criticism of food vendors,” suppress “debate over the fate of  a campus Confederate monument,” and stifle debate over controversial faculty, politicians, and sports teams.

Public universities can and do manipulate Facebook comments to distort the  public discourse. Wright State University, FIRE tells us, deleted comments supporting a faculty strike from its Facebook page,  confining debate over the action to a rigged community forum that appeared supportive of the university’s administration while being critical of striking faculty.

Yup, that’s how fascism works!

 Facebook doesn’t alert a user when their post has been removed, or tell the public that comments have been censored, so this system is perfect for mind and opinion molding. FIRE says,

These automated methods of censorship are not only contrary to a commitment to freedom of expression, but also provide government actors with tools that—in light of recent federal court rulings concerning President Trump’s Twitter feed—violate the government actors’ legal obligations under the First Amendment.

Below are the words that Facebook helps universities control speech and thought by censoring. Some will be relieved to know that “retard” is on it. Then again, so is “poor”…

  1. Also, “niggle?” It’s the genesis of the Niggardly Principle all over again, but worse.

    More winners: fire, filthy, emergency, error, dangerous, chicken(s), birds, bernie (I guess that has to be lower case. God forbid one should dis the Lord Bernie by spelling his name wrong), apartment, apologize, anthem, amazing…

    Obviously there are others, but wow.

  2. Good luck doing anything about it. If you sue the public universities and win, they will just be told to stop doing that. No major fine or punishment, just “stop doing that”. The university will then delete the list and create a new one the same day. Wash, rinse, repeat. Since no major fines are ever awarded, there is no reason to just do some paperwork compliance and keep infringing on the students’ rights. You just have to create a new list every 5-8 years (the time a court case takes), the lawyers are on retainer, and it is the taxpayer’s money anyway Why stop doing what you love when there is no compelling reason to? Ether the judges are idiots or they are willingly complicit in this. Perhaps they are both.

    • I walked down the street to get an update on the sale of Nike shoes before studying for my test on James Watt. I paused as a single snowflake spiraled from the sky like a screw.

      • Michael R. wrote, “I walked down the street to get an update on the sale of Nike shoes before studying for my test on James Watt. I paused as a single snowflake spiraled from the sky like a screw.”

        Oh My God; that’s terribly offensive!! You should probably be expelled, banned, prevented from ever getting a job, sterilized, and forced to wear a Scarlet Letter in public. 😉

    • Really?

      My impression — I hope you won’t get made at me! — is that you are not seeing a far larger picture. It’s like you are viewing things, the *world* perhaps, through a crack in the wall. Here, you and Steve Witherspoon (similarly of small vision) is provided an opportunity to notice, and then to rail about! the horrors of censorship. But are you aware of the efforts of the US intelligence structures as they team-up with the tech companies to ban and *demonetize* those who create content that is highly critical (to say the very least) of the *establishment*?

      And you especially who never having read one notable and notorious intellectual yet who feels entirely entitled to rail against him — without grasping what his critique of power amounts to — bark and bite when someone takes a critical stance in regard to the Power-System that you advocate for.

      How do you reconcile your tendency to condemn ‘free thinking’ and ‘free expression’ with your crocodile tears about some naughty words condemned by FaceBook? Are you not failing to see the forest by focus on one smallish tree?

      I think you are a hypocrite. But as I hope that you grasp my critique is far larger than you as an individual person. Essentially I am extremely critical of the ‘Conservative Establishment’ and I think I am in a strong ethical position to say what I am saying.

      Can you say anything at all to this that is not merely sputtering insults? 🙂

      The Problem I Have

      • In much of Asia, the number 4 is disfavored, and people avoid it, if they can, in their phone numbers, car tags, etc. In Japan, the 4Runner was known as the “Hilux Surf”, but they kept the name 4Runner for the Chinese market, because they hate them.

        “”2004toyota 4runner” contains the number twice, so is obviously intended as a slight (like Wuhan virus) against Asian students, particular Chinese, in wishing them misfortune.

        Some of this is true; the rest is not.

        • Yep. The mind boggles. Those snowfla . . . . “HEY! Stop hitting me! Help! Help! The police are aoer tyhq348iu vt6q2l/krna eptr98 arst4579pe6yg . . . . . . . .”

          Ed. Note: We apologize profusely for the commenter’s comments. They in no way reflect the views of this blog, this internet forum, or anyone else in the civilized world. The commenter will be treated with compassion as he undergoes treatment for his antisocial behavior.”

  3. As I quickly scrolled through the list these words jumped out at me; apartment, apologize, ban, cancel, emergency, food, free, hurry, open, pledge, truck, trump, update, you. What the hell are words like this doing in that list?

    Is there anything that can stop the trends towards totalitarianism?

    What’s to stop these people?

    • Well, we can stop tolerating them and stop trying to accommodate them. We can demand that state funding be pulled from our Universities. With their massive political bias, they really are only for leftist students. They have banned conservative political ideas by policy and that shouldn’t be allowed for a state-funded institution. Since they only serve 1/2 of the population, they should only get 1/2 the funding and new schools for conservative children need to be formed with equal funding. When children are reprimanded or punished in the public schools, people need to sue and they need to demand that the school district pay for private school of the parent’s choosing. We can demand that Facebook, Google, etc be allowed to treat people differently according to their political views. Those people are customers. When all customers have the same terms, how can you legally treat some customers differently than others? If a bank were to charge 25% interest on credit cards, but they actually only charged 10% interest for Democrats, wouldn’t that be against the law? If the bank charges financial penalties or suspends the account of Republicans for infractions of the banks terms when the bank can’t specify what terms were breached, is that OK? Why can’t they do it, it is a private company? Why should tech firms be able to act the same way (or the banks, actually?). If this isn’t against the law, there is a law that needs to be demanded.

      (Begin real rant here)
      We can stop quietly allowing leftists to impose these conditions on public life and private life. I finally had it and stood up to the leftist at the last family gathering after she repeated lie after lie about Trump (he is working for the Russians, he rigged the election, he is taking away all our rights and all his supporters are racist). I told her she was a blatant liar and demanded that she prove her accusations she made against the President and his supporters. I pointed out that she couldn’t and she KNEW she couldn’t. I just told her she was a bully and a liar and I wasn’t going to take it anymore. She shut up and hasn’t said a word about Trump since. I am just fed up. I was later thanked by several family members who also were upset that she does this all the time, but none of them ever spoke up.

      Look at that list again. Why was this allowed to happen? Because when they started doing this, no one wanted to stand up to them because they were afraid of being called ‘racist’ or ‘sexist’ or ‘homophobic’. The left learned and took inch by inch. All the people who just looked the other way and went along with it are why this happened. All the people who denied the wrong of Political Correctness in the 80’s and 90’s are why this happened. All the people who went along with ‘affirmative action’ are why this happened. All the people who went along with ‘hate crimes’ are why this happened. All the people who say nothing when leftists berate ‘white males’ or ‘straight’ people or ‘Christians’ are why this happened. All the people who allow the schools to post the rainbow flag but punish a student with a Confederate flag are why this happened. All the people who allow minorities to be blatantly racist or bigoted are why this happened. All the people who claim ‘slippery slope arguments’ are always false when just about every one about leftist trends are true are why this happened.
      (end rant)

      Now, back to trying to keep my students’ education from being completely destroyed this semester.

    • What’s to stop these people?

      Well, in a way you are *those people*. So, how will you stop yourself? I have noticed for years that you have an extremely limited critical approach. First, enough people have to have outlined the *problem* that you rail on about. For you, it seems to require a *group* to validate your *concern*.

      [Insert the picture of the hippy girl saying Hate Speech is Murder here for effect]

      Once it is identified, and once you feel surrounded by *like minded people* who share your extremely limited critical position, then you can go off on it. But do you have a critical mind? A critical intellectual posture as a general feature?

      Please, do not make me laugh! You are a member of a herd.

      Your ‘critical approach’ has extremely limited boundaries. You only go so far. And where that *far* is is always within extremely limited area. You have no platform for a larger and wider-ranging critical platform, and when someone indicates that they have it, if I am not mistaken that person is described by you as a *troll*.

      Making any sense?

      You stand belligerently *against* some people who you see as having *gone too far* in shutting down their critical capacity, and those who ‘toe a line’ of convention. Fair enough.

      And yet you yourself are heavily invested ia similar or comparable thing in relation to people who have a more developed critical posture. You seem to be a *centrist* but only a centrist insofar as you span a gap between two poles. If those poles move, you seem to move along with them.

      I doubt that you would advocate for the banning of specific words and for the programs used to seek them out and eliminate them. But in the idea realm? In what ideas and criticism that you can entertain and consider? I am not at all sure that you are a *friend* to those who, now, are doing this.

      Hope you don’t mind me piping up on this point? 🙂 It is done *from a place of love*.

      • Alizia wrote, “once you feel surrounded by *like minded people* who share your extremely limited critical position, then you can go off on it.”

        That statement alone shows that you can’t grasp who I am or your trolling trying to suck me into another one of your deflections.

        I’m not biting.

        • This is what my position is:

          If you get the sense that I notice extreme, obvious and outrageous HYPOCRISY and that I associate this hypocrisy with the (so-called) Conservative Establishment, please do not become offended. Unless I am very mistaken, and if ethics in any real sense is decided to be a virtue and something to strive for in all areas, then what I do here and what I question is a totally valid endeavor within a valid territory.

          You can either deal with it, or not. But that does not change my focus. Nor what I say nor when I say it. The issues we deal with are that important.

  4. arrr?
    Does that mean Pirate is no longer a language option on Facebook?
    What happens on Talk Like a Pirate Day?
    My parrot is planning a protest with the crew.

    • Because it refers to, or sounds like, the number 4, as Willem Reese properly pointed out a few moments ago. See, if “4” is offensive in some Asian cultures (especially in China) and we keep repeating the number out loud, then we are bullying some Asian cultures (especially China) and that simply can’t happen. I suspect multiples of “4” may also be offensive. It could also be that “4” on a traditional occidental computer keyboard shares its key with “$”, which as well all know is a dollar sign. The dollar sign, then, refers to the “orientally” oppressive political, economic, and social systems imposed on nativist communities primarily by those of the Occident, or the West.

      So, to rehash: “4” is simply shorthand for the glorification of Western oppression of the Orient (the keyboard shutters at that word!), and indigenous (and VASTLY SUPERIOR IN ALL WAYS) peoples who have suffered under Occidental Oppression (wait . . . didn’t I already type that?).

  5. The criteria for allowance should be based on the standard Oxford Dictionary or its American counterpart The criteria for disallowance, if it is necessary, is any word that is misspelled or contains something other that one of the 26 letters of the English alphabet.
    The list maker is apparently fixated on human anatomy and physiology while disregarding scientific terminology.

  6. Noticed that the old bugaboo “niggardly” isn’t on the list. Then again, it would probably get censored as a substring of “nigga”.

    Perhaps we should start to take the homonym (or near-homonym) approach used by PRC netizens to express their feelings:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grass_Mud_Horse (NSFW)
    And here’s the associated song: youtu.be/MFlxfuEZu5Y (*Really* NSFW – but with high earworm potential)

  7. Part of me agrees with you.

    However, a completely unmoderated space seems useless.

    Any attempt to maintain a constructive environment is going to have to limit content.

    Now, I suppose the way to do that would be to make it explicit and transparent. State up front that profanity, etc. will be flagged and deleted; then, notify people that their comment was deleted for X, Y, Z reason. The secrecy of it all is certainly objectionable.

    Would this pass Time-Place-Manner restrictions? I could make an argument for it.

    Now, would someone explain to me the basis for blocking 2004toyota 4runner?

    -Jut

    • The fact that the moderation is based on content is the main problem. The other problem is that the poster isn’t notified about the take-downs, and has no way to know why it happened. Using words as the basis to censor a post is the ultimate slippery slope, as the list amply shows. Even a statement that “abusive” or “hateful” comments won’t be allowed permits illicit censorship. If there is going to be a basis for blocking comments, it must be based on mode of expression not content, and in good faith.

  8. I am confused as to where this censorship is being applied. Doesn’t an organization have an ethical duty to moderate its comment section on a website? Wouldn’t a public institution have this same duty to moderate comments on its official Facebook page?

    Or are universities somehow blocking posts made on individuals profiles? Is it any post that uses the institution’s name, or it is blocking the university from being “tagged” in a critical post?

    • I suspect it is being applied on an IP address basis. That is, if Woke University (go Fightin’ Genderless Non-Binary Humans [And Also Those Who Identify As Otherkin But Were Assigned Human At Birth]!) subscribes to this filtering, then Facebook filters content destined for any of the university’s IP addresses. Thus, anyone on the campus network is being censored by Facebook’s servers before the content even leaves Facebook.

  9. I was pleased to see that assclown is still available. Perhaps left as necessary for use by those needing to describe the administrators who compiled these lists?

  10. Well, we’ll all be goosestepping soon. And the ones moving us in that direction probably don’t even know that reference.

    We all know there is a difference between censorship and promoting polite discourse. It’s attitudinal, not created by laws and rules. (This is how I taught my son how to be a gentleman, to express himself in a way that is consonant with his audience and still makes his point… and the difference between private and public expressions). Yes, that’s loosening (not for him) in inarguably detrimental ways, but it’s up to the audience of that speech to reject it, not a bunch of automatons who mesh language and politics. Sieg Heil, y’all.

    P.S. Re: George Carlin. Even assholes can be wise.

  11. George Carlin, following Jack’s exhumation, has a few words to say:

    “I love words. I thank you for hearing my words. I want to tell you something about words that I think is important. Words are my work, they’re my play. They’re my passion. Words are all we have really. We have thoughts, but thoughts are fluid. And, then we assign a word to a thought and we’re stuck with that word for that thought. So be careful with words. . . . I like to think that the same words that hurt can heal. It’s a matter of how you pick them.”

    [for example]

    “I think motivation is overrated, you show me some lazy prick who’s lying around all day watching game shows and stroking his penis and I’ll show you someone who’s not causing any fucking trouble, ok?”

    • Now there’s a classic stoner’s rationalization! If Carlin was nothing else, he was, and remained, a creation of the Sixties nihilism, drug and love culture. Great for jokes, not so good for real world policies.

      • I think you took the second quote to be a continuation of the first. It wasn’t. I chose it as an unmistakable example of Carlin’s idea of being “careful with words.” If a joke, then it was my (bad) one.

        I don’t consider it a rationalization, however. The word “motivation” remains a cliche, still applied negatively by school counselors or teachers on reports to parents of their child’s boredom, creative daydreaming or sexual distraction, often due — I have enough first-hand as well as second-hand knowledge of this to back it up — to poor teaching. (I won’t say poor material because I have known too many excellent teachers who turned-on and tuned-in the whole class no matter what the subject, as well as way too many “counselors” who rubber-stamped the teachers’ reports or the student’s “reputation.” Oh, the days when Motivational Speakers were all the rage, the worst of them leading their motivated sheep to pull their life savings out of the bank and roll down Dianetics Road to never be seen sane again.

        In other words, I think Carlin thinking “motivation” was overrated was on target, then and now. Only now, those grown-up under-motivated kids that went left have raised a couple of generations who are over-motivated to be doing something, joining, marching, screaming, whatever, anything, just to Do Something every waking moment. When not occupied otherwise, they play computer games or socially network obsessively. They may not masturbate much (they don’t really like the idea of abortion) but they sure know how to cause trouble.

        • See, I told you George Carlin wasn’t just a drugged-out hippie. On the contrary, he was a genius before his time. This today from an explanation of WuFlu stats:

          “Remember that the R0 is an average. For example if you could have
          1 person infects nobody; say, an unemployed guy who sits around at home watching tv

          8 people infect 2 people each; say, adults with office jobs
          1 person infects 10 people; say, someone working in an aged care home who physically handles many people
          in all, 10 people infected 26 people; R0 = 2.6

          source: a comment to an article: COVID-19 Superspreader Events in 28 Countries: Critical Patterns and Lessons – Quillette

  12. And I just happened to notice that “republican” made the list but “democrat” didn’t….

    But no, there’s no political bias in universities.
