Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next. 

Michigan State University has released a language guide — discouraging students from words that might be offensive. 

Phrases like tipping point, bonkers and cake walk are considered racist and sexist. 

Founder, tribe, minorities and America are also problematic.  And so too are words connected with Christian holidays.

Christmas trees, holly, reindeer, bunnies and eggs are considered to be bigoted words. 

“In winter and spring, avoid references to majority religious imagery and language, such as the word ‘merry’ or ‘Christmas trees,’ ‘wreaths,’ ‘holly,’ ‘bells,’ ‘gifts,’ ‘reindeer,’ ‘bunnies,’ ‘eggs’ and ‘chicks.’ Use terms like ‘wishing you a wonderful winter/spring break’ or ‘best wishes for the new year,'” reads the guide.

Instead, Michigan State says students must avoid any references to the nation’s majority religion. 

University leaders say they have worked diligently to remove an language they consider to be bigoted from official communications. 

Campus Reform reports it is part of an overall effort to align with strategic efforts around diversity, equity and inclusion. 

MSU also told students to avoid using words that might trigger the Native American population. Those words include: “pioneer,” “frontier,” “conquer and divide,” and “powwow.”

I’m assuming references to the Lone Ranger and Tonto are also on the no-no list.

“POC [People of Color],” “BIPOC [Black, Indigenous, and People of Color],” and “QTBIPOC [Queer, Transgender, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color]” are also barred by the university as they argue the terms are not inclusive enough.

Michigan State is well on its way to be the wokest of woke in higher education. 

The university has also advised people to avoid using words like obese, obesity or overweight. They say those terms are pathologizing stigmas in the size-diversity community. 

Instead, they recommend using phrases like larger bodied or students of size. 

What about lard-butt?
