Remember how it was so PC to not call your representative in Washington a “Congressman”? Remember how it was so PC to call those folks that have lived here longer than the white Europeans, “Native Americans” as opposed to “Indians”. And it’s grown from there to hate-speech (which is basically everything they disagree with), and making discourse on campus, and people wearing MAGA hats as Un-PC, and that couldn’t be tolerated.
Well it looks as if the PC movement is over.
A whopping 80% of people out there, including every single minority group…by a vast majority…say that Political Correctness is wrong and should be done away with.
So, it comes down to the question, who is making these determinations that the PC movement embraces? It’s basically uber-leftists and the media. They are the ones that tell us that we have to be careful of what we say so not to upset others…all the while they chase conservatives out of restaurants, harass people walking through airports, scream and shout at motorists driving through city streets, all in the name of PC.
The amazing thing is, that it isn’t just the old farts that are sitting in their rocking chairs that are saying this either. Millennials, Gen-X’ers, Baby Boomers, all feel that political correctness is something that needs to be stuffed at the trash heap.
So, my question is why now? What is it that right now is the fulcrum that the PC crowd has gone too far? Does it have to do with the uncivilized behavior of the left? I don’t think so. I think that once the PC movement started, it went too far…just like everything the left does. They keep pushing and pushing and pushing to the point where normal people start to feel that it’s gone too far. That’s exactly what happens every time the left gets in charge. They go way too far, and the normal people in the world decide they can’t take it anymore and vote them out of office. Conservatives have the opposite problem in that “normal people” decide they can “get more” from the left…and they do until they realize that they are the ones having to pay for it.
Let’s hope we get rid of political correctness as quickly as possible…it is LONG passed due to be tossed on the scrap heap of failed liberal ideas.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
