Via Bob Belvedere, who sums up political correctness quite well.
America, unlike every other nation in History, was founded on a set of ideas. They were based on the wisdom gathered over the millennia and absorbed by The Founding Fathers. That modern Americans are willing to deny the legitimacy of such ideas when shamed into feeling guilty about holding them by people who want to destroy everything we stand for is a sign of a people gone soft.
Political Correctness is nothing but a tactic straight out of the Leftist Playbook that seeks to undermine our confidence in our capacity to reason. It aims to sow self-doubt. It often works because it plays on the natural human tendency of people brought up in a Judeo-Christian Culture to feel guilt [PC-inspired guilt is misplaced guilt; the only guilt we should feel is when we disappoint God].
Could This Be One Explanation?
We are perishing in an orgy of PC-based guilt and unless we resolve to cast this misplaced guilt into the depths of the oblivion it deserves, we shall be consumed by it and overrun by America’s enemies [most likely, the Left].
Very well stated sir!
