Political Correctness
Definition from Google. noun: the avoidance, often considered as taken to extremes, of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against. A simple example: If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah. If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman. Is this offensive to the men doing the nicknaming? Is it offensive to others who might hear them? Does it matter? A more complex example: As reported in the media, in a memo to students sent out by West Virginia University (WVU), Title IX coordinator James Goins, Jr. declares that anyone who refuses to use a person’s preferred transgender pronouns is breaking federal law! A political example: Robert Litan, a Democrat, was fired from his left leaning think tank after delivering testimony against an Elizabeth Warren-backed Labor Department plan to regulate financial advisers. Half of House Democrats and virtually all Republicans in Congress oppose the plan because of its costs. Instead of rebutting his argument, Ms. Warren decided to punish it, he was fired from his think tank. One ridiculous example: Princeton University’s ‘Men’s Engagement Manager’, to rehabilitate men that are too masculine. Obviously there are many more, even more dramatic, examples of political correctness gone wild in our culture today. Political correctness can be best described as the opposite of or the enemy of truth.

Political, not Moral Reaction to Roseanne

from The Gray Area:

Is Roseanne Barr a racist? Don't know. Don't think so. Appears to be a progressive person who just issued a bad joke.

But, her tweet was going to be easy fodder for the anti-Trump media to portray her as as racist and use her support of Donald Trump to link that gross politically correct generalization to him and everyone who supports him. Every comment about the Roseanne tweet says strong supporter of Trump. They discuss ad nauseum how this is a result of Trump. He sets the tone for this racism and white supremacy. According to Rush Limbaugh, did you ever hear of Harvey Weinstein, an avid Obama and Hillary supporter, being introduced as a Democrat funder, bundler, white house visitor, and his sexual misconduct represents all of Democrat party supporters.

Michelle Wolf's performance and attack on Trump Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the Correspondents Dinner is another example of the acceptable nature for bashing all around the President and especially those who voted for him.

And then there is this. Samantha Bee unimaginably the next day on TBS called Ivanka Trump a 'feckless "c"'. She gets to keep her job after writing an apology. But, then, the same network ownership hires and maintains such firebrands as Keith Olberman (ESPN) & Joy Behar (ABC), so what else should we expect. This does represent the blind hatred of Trump and Trump supporters, yet their media employers are so int eh tank they cannot see it, and worse support it. This is not about ABC's values as they said, except that their values begin and end with political ideology. They practice the credo, 'If you are with me I will make an excuse for you. If you don't, I will get you.' Do you really think that in this country you cannot hold a different opinion without being called a racist, homophobe, masaoginist, white supremacist etc.! The reaction to Roseanne was political, not moral. There are many examples, but the Samantha Bee move proves it.
