"Political Correctness" is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

My time on the internet is certainly not wasted! Yes

A classic indeed. The scary thing is that our society has accepted the idea that you can't think, express, or criticize certain ideas -- and that some people are turning that into power to stifle opposition to their political agendas.

It truly alarms me when I hear young adults that grew up in a PC world say that there should be limits on "hate speech" in order to preserve free expression. They have completely bought into the idea that people are entitled to a life free of offense -- but only certain offenses. The word "hater" is growing in power as a trump card and rapidly being expanded to include criticism of just about any aspect of a liberal agenda.

By embracing the restraints of political correctness, we accept the shackles of tyranny.

That is too funny. Apparently we must believe that what comes out of a sacred cow is not Bull@%&*.

All this PC has slowly become a real annoyance to me as well. In fact I get down right pissed anymore everytime I hear people brandishing PC rhedoric.

I'm a big believer in manners and politeness. In fact I hold polite manners in very high regards. But, I also believe that you need to be honest to yourself and those around you. In other words - call it as you see it, and call it what it is. If someone takes offense then so be it, that's their problem. PC is just a passive/agressive way of hiding the truth of things.

I agree WH. P.C. is just another way of trying to silence opposition you have neither the moral courage or the intellect to face.
