Victor Davis Hansen wrote:The reinvention of vocabulary can often be more effective than any social protest movement. Malarial swamps can become healthy “wetlands.” Fetid “dumps” are often rebranded as green “landfills.”
From/to:

- Affirmative action/diversity.
- Illegal alien/illegal immigrant/undocumented immigrant/immigrant/migrant.
- Liberal/progressive.
