Died suddenly. Is she right? Will these words be banned next?
Definitely, just like Wikipedia, Urban Dictionary, et al, they will re-define what is acceptable. Just change the definition and pass acts that ban their usage. Pure Blood will soon be another banned phrase.

I often wonder if these “elites” in this world will be willing to pay a price for a blood transfusion from us pure bloods? I am an active blood donor that has never asked for anything for my service. Eight gallons is a helluva lot of blood!

While I understand your comment, I find the term “pure bloods” to be insulting. You may not have had the Covid vaccine, but there may be other things in your blood or dna that are less than pure. Congratulations on being a blood donor, by the way!
I received two of the Covid vaccines early in their availability, upon the recommendation of my cardiologist. I do not consider myself to be an “elite”. I can’t think of any reason why those who did not get vaccinated should feel superior. Most of them are just lucky.
Your situation is your own, and you went with advice from someone you trusted. They, in turn, trusted others.
Only those engaged in deceit need to be shamed and held accountable.
Absolutely true. My feeling is that we should ALL be pushing for truth and facts, and STOP turning against one another. That goes for those who were not vaccinated as well as those who were, those who are opposed to vaccination, and those who are in favor. NOTHING, in my opinion, is accomplished by being proud of your vaccination status, saying that you are superior, or calling others inferior, or inferring that they are inferior or somehow mentally incompetent.
Stella, I’m not opposed to vaccinations. As a Vietnam Vet, I had vaccinations that were more than your average Joe. I was good for Smallpox twice, Yellow fever, Cholera,Tetanus (4 times), Polio, Adenovirus type 4&7, Typhoid (three times),Flu (twice), Typhoid (twice), Plague, TB Tine (twice), GG. That’s just my Vietnam vaxxes. As a child in the 50’s I had all the vaxxes needed. Does this sound like I’m an anti vaxxer?

I’m not against vaccination, in general, either. And I never called you an anti-vaxxer.
Sorry Stella, I don’t feel superior, I LOST MY JOB because of this debacle! My only saving grace is I could retire. Maybe I have an axe to grind, and thanks for the platform to permit my grinding! Now we are getting into word definitions, no? What phrase shall I use instead of pure blood? The new phase that’s getting attention now is “died suddenly” and is that enough to start banning people from social media from describing what’s happening? As I stated earlier, I asked zero for what I donate. Sometimes one must take a stand for what one believes in. I paid a little bit of my dues in this lifetime and I thank you again for this great web site. Strong feelings deserve accurate descriptions, no? And I’m not asking for a friend.
Pure blood is a divisive term. Your blood is no purer than anyone else’s blood. I’m sorry you lost your job over this, but it has nothing to do with me, or anyone else who did or didn’t get a vaccine, whether voluntarily or under duress.
What phrase should you use instead of pure blood? The answer is NONE! It does nothing except divide people. It doesn’t make you better, although maybe it makes you feel better. I’m not suggesting that the phrase be banned – just that it is obnoxious. That’s my opinion.
When does the science get documented? I sure as heck don’t want any blood from this evil act called covid if I need a transfusion. In a year and a half of this what-ever-you want to call it, thirty percent increase in deaths of the 24-44 year old bracket is alarming, no? This country now is NOT what my father fought for in WWII or my time defending what our country called for. My family history dates back to the Battle of Bushy Run era. Country pride runs deep in this family! Something stinks in Denmark and I can smell it in Pa.! It’s an old phrase and no offense to the Danes please! In it’s day, the phrase was accurate! Thank You!
When we were still living in a large city (well… large by Canadian standards… LOL), I remember one year when two stories hit the local news a few months apart. Both involved 11 yr old boys that suddenly dropped dead. One in the middle of a hockey game at school. The other on the school bus. In both cases, the boys were behaving completely normal, then suddenly they were dead. In both cases, they turned out to have undiagnosed heart defects. Something they were born with. It made the news because of how exceedingly rare this was.
So it is with suddenly deaths from heart conditions in that 25-40 age range. And yet, I still see people trying to brush off this increase in deaths by saying that there have always been heart attacks in that age range; we’re just hearing about them more now, because people are trying to blame it on the injections. They absolutely refuse to acknowledge that these deaths are notable because there are so many more of them, not because they never happened before.
As the saying goes; people would rather believe a lie, then believe that they have been lied to.
