The authorship of the anti-word belongs to the politician from the Christian Social Union, Alexander Dobrindt, who first uttered it in an interview in May last year. The head of the CSU land group in the Bundestag called the “sabotage of the rule of law” lawsuits against the deportation of those who were denied refugee status, and called what was happening “the anti-deportation industry”. Dobrindt had in mind lawyers and initiatives that purposefully explain to migrants how to avoid deportation or delay it.
According to the jury professor of linguistics, Nina Janich, similar expressions from the lips of the leading politician of the ruling party show "how much political discourse has lingually and essentially shifted to the right, and that because of this also the better side has changed the rules of what is permissible to say out loud in the conditions of our democracy. "
In my opinion, this is not respect for all segments of the population, and especially for migrants. Going through my youth project, I would not want to hear the current rude and vulgar word in my address. In my opinion, all people on earth are equal and it does not matter where you live, and whether you have a passport or not. First of all, you remain human.
Under these "rules," Professor Yanikh explained to the jury, do not literally mean the provisions spelled out elsewhere. It’s about “what we in a democratic society usually consider acceptable, because it does not violate human rights, does not incite ethnic hatred, does not deliberately mislead, is not knowingly false,” the expert said.
Alexander Dobrindt himself, learning about the nomination of his neologism, called it permissible sharpening. Including in court it was proved that the expression "anti-deportation industry" can not be regarded either as an offensive criticism or as an insult, he said.
This year, a total of 508 different concepts were sent to the jury in Darmstadt, but only 60 of them met the criteria for the action. As a result, experts selected 15 words for the prefix "anti" for voting.
I would be interested in knowing in what context can young people use this word? And I was not pleased that people in everyday life can use it. I think the use of this word is a direct insult, and I put it on a par with sexism and homophobia.
The action on the choice of the anti-word has been held since 1991. Its main task is to increase “language consciousness” and “language sensitivity” among the population. Every year, an anti-word is chosen as a concept that degrades human dignity or violates democratic and other principles - for example, discriminates against certain groups of society.
