Dehumanising language from the BBC


Prepare to be offended to the very core of your being. The BBC has not been entirely innocent of using 'dehumanising' language about all and sundry - as you can see from the following seven BBC News website articles.

Ready the smelling salts, folks!

  1. Great catch! But finding hypocritical statements from lefties is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel.

    The Oxford English Dictionary defines 'swarm' (noun) as 'A very large or dense body or collection; a crowd, throng, multitude ... of persons'. This meaning of the word has been in use since at least 1423.

    Interestingly the OED also has 'allusively of persons who leave the original body and go forth to found a new colony or community', used in this sense since 1659.
