In an effort to appease (and therefore not offend) people, the left began pushing hard to implement the practice of political correctness into American society back in the 1970’s. Although the practice existed long before that in a more rudimentary form, it was in 1970 that the term was coined, and the implementation of it as an acceptable and preferred style of thought began. And just where has it gotten us? Not only have symbolic expressions of Christian holidays become banned from public areas, but the very phrase “Merry Christmas” has been replaced with “Season’s Greetings” and “Happy Holidays” around the country. Elementary school children no longer have Easter egg hunts, they now search for something called “Spring Sphere’s”, which does nothing but promote an ignorance of geometry. The mentally ill are now intelligence challenged, and so on, and so on ad infinitum ad nauseum.
However, aside from making everyone look, sound and act like a complete moron, political correctness is now endangering our very lives. It is being reported that although there were witnesses to the jihadist rants of Nidal Hasan (the murdering Ft. Hood mohammedan jihadist), including some who heard him say that killing fellow American soldiers in the name of islam was acceptable. Those witnesses did not come forward and report his treasonous statements, however, because they were afraid of being labeled as prejudiced. Because of political correctness 13 American soldiers died. To make matters worse (if they can be), the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, refuses to even utter the phrase “Violent Islamic Extremism”, choosing instead to say “violent extremism”, and thus promoting the idea that maybe, just maybe it wasn’t mohammedan whackadoodles that attacked us on 9/11 and are yet today plotting our bloody end. No, he would rather insinuate that there are so many extremist groups out there that it is wrong to point a finger at those who actually attacked us. Need I remind King Hussein I that it was not the KKK who blew up the U.S.S. Cole. It was not the American Nazi Party who planted bombs under the World Trade Center. It was not La Raza who, wait they’re Obama’s friends so I can’t use them as an example of extremists. Um … It was not E.L.F. who flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and into a field in Pennsylvania. No, Barry, it was islamic terrorists. Did you catch that? ISLAMIC terrorists.
It’s one thing to be polite and an inoffensive, it’s quite another thing to take political correctness to such a degree that it endangers Americans.
