Political correctness is a liberal invention designed to get conservatives to shut up. Ever notice the lack of correctness and civilityon their part particularly when talking about the tea party? Look how Garafolo spoke about Herman Cain, no political correctness there. There's no such thing as political correctness which is why I choose to ignore it and say whats on my mind.
awesome! I wrote a blog about the hypocrisy coming from the left the other day. I agree with you and as I asserted today in a new blog, political correctness has gone to far and is causing many problems. People fear being labeled so they sit back and let those who dont like those on the far left ruin this country.
I have no problem with labels! Call me a right wing conservative extremist wing nut I don't care! Of course some of those descriptions would be a bit of an exageration and meant as an insult but for the most part they define my political thinking and I'm not ashamed of that! Liberals on the otherhand don't like being called liberals, or marxist, or socialists, or future fascists, but the reality is that is exactly what they are! Sorry libbies, own up to what you believe and stop tring to hide it!
I love it! I feel the same way. If people want to hate me because I am a conservative, believe in and follow Jesus Christ, and stand firmly aginst BS and pure evil then fine I want them to hate me haha......
1 favorable to progress or reform, as in political or religious affairs. 2. ( often initial capital letter ) noting or pertaining to a political party advocating measures of progressive political reform. 3. of, pertaining to, based on, or advocating liberalism. 4. favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties. 5. favoring or permitting freedom of action, especially with respect to matters of personal belief or expression: a liberal policy toward dissident artists and writers.
Lol! That's funny John! Show me one liberal today thats for any of those things, except "progress" or "reform" since both of those have definitions that are very subjective, for example liberals today view more regulation as "reform" whether or not they have the intended result, and they view more and bigger government as "progress" often associating the creation of new bureaucracies as a "moving the country forward" when in reality that effect can be considered anything but progress unless you view a march toward oppression as "progress".
the gov has proven it cannot run anything so I dont not why they keep trying....look at Amtrak and the postal service...all in the red....but this is a play out of the socialist handbook...bankrupt a country so the people are so desperate they will take whatever you give them....tax huge and give a little.....
Look at the gay marriage issue. Because it's politically incorrect to express support for two people of the same sex to get married, even though a majority of people support the right, then it's political correctness that stands in the way of equal rights in this country.
Also, because it's politically correct to loudly say you are a religious Christian or Jew (even if you're not), then people who are neither Christian nor Jewish have a relatively tough time getting elected to office.
It's also apparently very un-PC to say that a virulent brand of evangelical Christianity is dead-set on propagating values that are antithetical to those that the US has traditionally held dear.
But the fact is it is PC to agree with same sex marriage, as anyone who dosn't agree with it can attest to.
And there is no problem in this country for someone who is not religious to be elected... there simply are not that many of you atheists is the only problem. And that sums up the last point also, about people claiming religion... most people are religious in some fashion or another.
Also... considering our founders were indeed religious men, they alone, make your boast about American values we have held dear, a complete laugh.
The fact is none of the founders would have accepted the Govts role in gay marraige, or many other Liberal BS policies.
That's an offensive word that most of us can agree on. Is fat an offensive word? How about handicapped? There are many words in the English language and you chose a very offensive word to prove too little a point. Congratulations.
If anything the majority of this country seems set on putting down those who believe in God.......the reason many do not is because it would mean that they would have to live their life knowing they will be held accountable for what they do on this earth and that scares them
Well, it's Allah that is being politically corrected in this country. Remember the hue and waaaaaah when the Muslim senator swore the oath on the Quran? How come King is holding hearings on Muslim terrorism, but ignores Operation Rescue's murderous, threatening tactics that go on to this day?
Could it be that King is politcally correct? But you see--you are politically correct in who you call politically correct!!!
Only Christians and white men get to be the victims.
I'm a Christian, white man, Sourpuss and in no way feel like a victim. I don't act like one either. You're only a victim if you allow yourself to be, deciding to wallow around in some level of self pity.
Do you blame others for your own problems in life or do you work to change them?
In what world is it politically incorrect to back gay marriage? You must be seeing something I'm not. The same people who are for gay marriage invented political correctness in the first place. If I live in a bubble its a bubble of realism.
Even Democrats have to avoid the topic like the plague, and continuously repeat the soundbite "I personally believe marriage is between man and woman."
And among the Republicans, even though most Republican voters wanted to end Don't Ask, Don't Tell, the political candidates couldn't openly agree because it wasn't politically correct. (Except Ron Paul, but he's politically incorrect on almost all GOP issues, and thus doesn't have a prayer in the election)
Words like that are a distraction by the right intent on being as offensive as possible, they want to preserve the right to call black men "nigger", homosexuals, poofs or faggots, masculine women as dykes.
Yes, Nick, political correctness has run a muck and should be done away with. Should we use racial and or derogatory words to describe or talk to one another? No, but what's next? Are we going to have to stop calling a bleached blond a bleached blond and instead say she's peroxide dependent?
I heard an ad on the radio promoting the breast feeding of babies and they actually said, "it's environmentally friendly" BEFORE mentioning it was beneficial for their health.
Wow! Political Correctness has been out there for a very long time and still, too many miss the point of it. It is oppression on the most basic level, censorship of the very words, the very thoughts in a person’s mind. Hard to believe that, after all these years, political correctness is still not recognized for what it really is, a nullification of freedom of speech, and beyond that, freedom of thought, by the individual.
