I didn't realize that our more right wing brethern and sistern were still enanamored with the term policiticall correct, but it still seems to be a peforative term with some magic power and it only seems to apply to views and statements made by those of us that are more progressive. I've been trying to help out with programs for the homeless in our community and in defending the need for access to help for the 585 homeless children in our schools I was told that I was just being PC and that their families could take care of them if they only would. Since I've never been clear about exactly what PC is I decided to create my own definition which appears below the design.
Political correctness (politically correct; PC): The attack by liberals on anyone espousing traditional American values and ideals. The drive for political correctness is so pervasive that to be politically incorrect results in one being labeled racist, sexist etc. and risk losing their social standing, reputation, possibly their job and even being jostled in the street, being subject to judicial penalty and death threats. The term cannot be applied to any conservative position or person. Political correctness, therefore, is so powerful that conservatives are never in a majority position and are by definition, always politically incorrect, a situation which entails that they are right-minded and morally superior. An example of political incorrectness which clearly hurt a career was Tim Tebow’s overt religiosity which has prevented him from continuing his career in the NFL.
