Eva Wiseman at The Guardian has an aversion to specificity it seems:
Racism, homophobia, anti-semitism. Attacks across the world by men with guns, men with bombs, men with knives, men with trucks added to the general hum of suspicion and anxiety. On a domestic scale, people whispered about their neighbours, families split along north-south divides; standing back, Britain felt embarrassed and isolated and scared of everything.
Here at Dumb Times we suggest the word ‘Muslims’ to capture and convey a deeper truth about those men with their guns and bombs and knives and trucks. After all, doesn’t Fowler’s The King’s English advise us to favour specificity over vagueness?
