A subject that begs a few words.
These days of political rhetoric the term “politically correct” and variations of the word are everywhere…..especially it one is prone to what pretends to be conservatism……and this election is ripe for the use of the term. It is a term when used the wombats on the Right cheer and applaud…..
But what is meant by the term “politically correct”?
In today’s usage it is an off-handed insult to anyone that disagrees with Right minded individuals. In other words if you do not use the terminology that the GOP uses then you are suffering from “political correctness”…..if you do not use the term “radical Islamic terrorism” then you are being PC……so if you disagree with these people on any subject then you are being PC while they feel they are well informed……no matter how many times they are proven to be mistaken.
The use of the term is in place of other terms they like but try to be somehow intellectual….terms like “panty waste” or “bleeding heart” or “apologist” and other such derogatory forms of name calling.
The election of 2016 is full of the term PC…..for example….if you refer to undocumented aliens instead of illegal aliens…… then you are being PC…..if you use Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas…..then you are being PC…..or so on and so on….(you probably have others)…..
Basically it boils down to one simple fact…..if you do not use the term they want you to use then you are suffering from “political correctness”. And if you choose not to use their demented terminology then you are the worst kind of PC….a LIBERAL.
Another thing I find fascinating……has anyone (people who think Trump is some sort of messiah) taken the time to listen to all the low class rhetoric surrounding Trump?
Apparently not. If they had then they would worried about the direction he would take this country if he were successful…..as it is most of these people are so concerned with what is happening in the US because of all the PC talk……and all the time Trump is talking about taking this country down the path they are so afraid the country will follow if he is not elected….
I would say it is because they will not take the time to think about what is happening…..but I know that is not the case…..sadly I know exactly why…..and so do they.
