Language is essential in every culture but the misuse of language has become legion in the media and has at times crossed over to being dangerous. Joining us today is Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Lead Professor of English, Speech, and Spanish at Jarvis Christian College. She looks at how ridiculous language has become and how its misuse deceives people and furthers agendas. Was there an insurrection? No, the ‘insurrectionists' had no weapons. Is it genocide to question a narrative? No, it's just a difference of opinion. It turns out that if you're going to fundamentally transform society, you need to manipulate language to fit your agenda and absolutely allow no criticism in the process.
