One of the recurring refrains since the election has been a warning call against “normalizing” the extremist politics of Donald Trump—that if we care about American culture, we cannot make peace with the anti-Semitism, racism, xenophobia, and misogyny of Trumpism, or politely give people like Steve Bannon a fair shake.
But, shit, sometimes you’ve got deadlines to hit, and calling a white supremacist “a white supremacist” gets to be a little much. Helpfully, Boing Boing has created a euphemism generator to keep things pumping. You just click on it and—bam!—you don’t have to call Steve Bannon or David Duke a white nationalist anymore.
There is, obviously, a bit of a pattern here, but the point still stings. The generator’s creator, Rob Beschizza, nails the idiosyncratic dictions of New York Times headlines, a skill he also employed six years ago for his New York Times Torture Euphemism Generator.
