The UKs most hated word is not fit for publication

The Oxford Dictionary ran a campaign in the UK to find out which English word was most hated. The politically correct did not like what they found out so the campaign was abruptly cancelled. As always when people try to hide the truth there will be a backlash to get the truth out. I think we in New Zealand should be aware of what this hated word is. We should not only know what it is we should ask searching?questions about why it is that this word has inspired so much hatred. I am glad?that the word that is hated is not personal and does not refer to an individual. This hatred is not directed at people but at the ideas and laws that this word represents.

London: The campaign to find the world’s most hated words in the English language has been scrapped after it took a racist turn.

According to its blog, despite thousands of people taking part, Oxford Dictionaries was forced to axe its #OneWordMap initiative due to ‘severe misuse,’ reports the Metro.

That is politically correct speak for we did not like the result which did not fit our agenda.

“We regret to inform users that due to severe misuse we have had to remove this feature from our website,” read the blog-post. As the survey said, ‘moist’ emerged as an early contender for the least popular word in the United States, while ‘Brexit’ was the UK’s least favourite.

However, when words like ‘ Islam’ topped the rankings in the United Kingdom, the organizers were forced to call off the #OneWordMap initiative.

Note how the word “Brexit” was considered an acceptable word for hate despite a clear majority of people in the UK being supportive of it not only as a word but as an action. It was democratically voted for after all. It appears that #OneWordMap has a political agenda that allows hate towards conservative politics but not towards a religion and political system that the left shelter and apologise for every day.

They say they were “forced” to call off the initiative. I wonder what forced them? Was it threats to their safety from people who follow this hated word by any chance? Were they afraid that a terrorist would do to them what they did to the cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo? Were?they afraid to reveal the depth of enmity towards Islam in the UK? They have branded the choice of the word “Islam” as racist yet if the word chosen had been “Catholicism”, “Christianity” or “Hinduism” no one would have raised an eyebrow and the campaign would have continued.

Before “Islam” started to top the hated word chart the organiser had this to say about the project…

?We?re really not sure what words people will choose,? said Braddock, ?but our expectation is that they will be fuelled by a multitude of reasons. ?Cancer?, for example, has affected most people in the world, so I wouldn?t be surprised if we see that make an appearance. And there?s a huge amount of commentary in the political field at the moment, so there?s a chance we might see some submissions related to politics.?

Braddock said this was the first time Oxford Dictionaries had attempted to trace the world?s most disliked English words. ?This isn?t something we?ve ever done before but we?re really pleased to finally have it in place. We?re constantly trying to find ways of getting people interested in words and language, and we?re hoping that this will contribute to people?s enthusiasm for the subject,? he said. ?It?s hard to say how much response we?ll get, but we?re hoping for somewhere in the region of 30,000. I?m just hoping people find it interesting enough to share it, which will help contribute to the numbers.?

It appears that the campaign was a victim of its own success. Not only were people interested enough to share it, as predicted by the organisers they chose a word that ?has affected many people in the world. Milo Yiannopoulos is famous for running a poll asking people if they would rather their child had feminism or cancer.He too got a surprising result.
