    EU Advice to Ban Terms Like ‘Christmas Time’ to Be Inclusive Withdrawn After Backlash

    EU Advice to Ban Terms Like ‘Christmas Time’ to Be Inclusive Withdrawn After Backlash

    The European Commission will be “looking into” a internal document that advised bureaucrats to avoid terms like “Christmas time” to be more inclusive after the paper leaked to an Italian newspaper.

    The document, entitled “European Commission Guidelines for Inclusive Communication”, gives advice to Commission employees for all communications including press releases, social media posts, speeches, and training materials. Under the section labelled “cultures, lifestyles and beliefs”, the document recommends Commission employees refrain from using the term “Christmas time”, arguing that because Christmas is not celebrated by everyone in the European Union, they should use the term “holiday times” instead.

    Guidance, first
    reported on by the Italian newspaper Il Giornale with the entire document later distributed by French news website, also discourages the term “Christian name”, which should instead be replaced with “first name” or “forename”.

    Commission employees are also encouraged to use names from different ethnic and religious backgrounds in their communications material, giving the example: “Malika and Julio are an international couple.”

    While much of the document is comprised of language suggestions, there are some rules which are labelled as being mandatory, such as “never” using gendered language like policeman as a default, not using the term “Mr” or “Mrs”, and always addressing an audience as “dear colleagues” — “never” as “ladies and gentlemen”.

    The EU publication also states that workers should “be mindful of the negative connotations of terms such as colonisation or settlement”, going so far as to suggest the use of the phrase “sending humans to Mars” rather than speak of the future colonisation of the red planet.

    Il Giornale published the report over the weekend, prompting criticism from Italian politicians, such as national conservative Brother of Italy (FdI) leader Giorgia Meloni who stated: “Enough is enough: our history and our identity will not be erased.”

    Spanish MEP Jorge Buxadé, a member of the populist party VOX, also commented on the document on Twitter, telling European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen: “We are going to say Christmas, Mary, Bethlehem, Joseph, Jesus and whatever we want, when we want.”

    The Commission subsequently walked back the guidance, with the European Commission’s Commissioner for Equality Helena Dalli, a long-serving Maltese left-wing politician calling the document — which she had previously posed for a picture holding at its launch — a “work in progress”. Dalli said in astatement issued through the Commission and shared by her on social media that her intention for the document has been “to illustrate the diversity of European culture”, a mission she called an “important aim”. Nevertheless, she said, “the guidelines clearly need more work. I therefore withdraw the guidelines and will work further on this document”.

    The uncovering of the content of the communication guidelines comes just months after Simona Baldassarre, a Member of the European Parliament for Matteo Salvini’s League, highlighted a glossary for EU officials which banned terms like “mother” and “father”.

    The Eu commission is Racist. If they want to ban Christmas time, they should also ban the term Ramadan as most of the European people don't Celebrate it.

    This has nothing to do with minorities. It has everything to do with the bureaucracy wanting control and trying to take away everything in their way: God included.

    Those Minorities are the ones that burn your cities to the ground in riots and protests if you so much as slightly "Offended" them....its the excuse they need to do what they came here to do....Destroy Western Civilisation.....As they do in France and Sweden and a few other countries...where the stories are buried out of Fear of the Storm and War it is eventually going to cause....Frequent Grenade attacks in Sweden....Yearly Riots in No Go French zones....
    Why you think France is only to happy to let hundreds of thousands try leave France to come to UK...Be honest with yourselves....or you can continue been "woke" with your head in the sand....till its to late....

    Many things in life are offending to different folks, but only some are allowed to be offended--those blanketed as the offenders, according to racial profiling. Karma may put the shoe on the other foot, but operating deliberately upon the dictates of negative karma is more insidious, because the perpetrators supposedly know better and have the morally higher ground. That's called equity by the social engineers. What's your social credit score?
