Politically Correct Language For Thee, But Not For Me — Opinion

What a shame.

*Originally published October 2020* Perhaps Donald Trump’s greatest appeal to huge masses of people at his rallies (peaceful protests) and in the voting booth is that he is so non-politically correct. Meanwhile, since early spring, the Left has taken stronger control of public discourse and is enforcing an extreme ‘political correctness’ edict. To raise issues, for example, with the activities of BLM or Antifa is to gamble with your career, perhaps get beaten to a pulp, and possibly be murdered on video.

What is Correct About It?

If only ‘political correctness’ (PC) was useful to society in some way. Instead, it is employed as a cultural catapult used by certain groups who eagerly seek to:

1. Viciously label those who don’t agree with their viewpoint
2. Silence those who don’t agree with their viewpoint
2. Belittle them for the language used, even if such language is not offensive
4. Ruin their careers if not imperil their safety
5. Diminish any activity that doesn’t conform to such verbal fascism

PC enforcers require that everyone else think and behave as they direct. PC is a major tool to immobilize otherwise conscientious government officials and to keep them from doing their jobs effectively, such as upholding the U.S. Constitution and protecting U.S. citizens. As a prime example: ’Sanctuary cities,’ and the city government officials and agents within them, are clearly at odds with the U.S. Constitution, a document which delineates protections for U.S. citizens.

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security in 2009, chose to no longer mention the word “terrorism,” especially following egregious acts of terrorism within U.S. borders. She told a journalist, following her maiden testimony on Capitol Hill, that she is fully aware of terrorism threats, however, she prefers to rely upon the term “man-caused” disasters. Let that sink in.

Thought Control

PC equates to nothing less than thought-control. It thwarts needed inquiry into the questionable activities of certain individuals. As such, PC is deadly. In 2015, many individuals noted the odd activities and behavior of a San Bernardino Islamic couple, who later proved to be mass murderers. Observers of the couple reported that they consciously avoided citing them to authorities because of their Islamic, minority status.

Obama’s Department of Justice coined new terminology for convicted criminals in April 2016. Convicted criminals were now to be regarded as justice-involved individuals. Youthful offenders were renamed as justice-involved youth. Such language contortion is a Big Brother type of activity. Change the language, and you can control thought. Think: Pro-choice rather than pro-abortion, although somehow the choice invariably is abortion.

In June 2016, in Orlando, it turned out that an Islamic mass murderer was known in advance, by many other people, to be unhinged and perhaps violent. Oops, too late! 49 people died, many more were seriously injured, and a town, state, and nation were in shock. Following the Orlando massacre, the verbally fascist Obama Administration decreed that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and other federal agencies be barred from employing the terms “jihad” and “Sharia.”

Oppression, Domination, and Control

A mere word, in a short tweet, or a comment that one made 40 years ago, which today is unacceptable to the ‘woke’ crowd, can imperil one’s career. Is it any wonder that PC is among the great curses of our contemporary society?

How exactly is PC employed as the go-to tool of domination? The tenets of PC are that Caucasians, principally western males, are the embodiment of oppression. Their views, behaviors, and actions inherently are wrong simply because they are Caucasian, western males. PC vocabulary, such as “mansplain,” “white privilege,” and “micro-aggression” is designed to diminish and squelch the observations, experiences, rationale, and worthiness of the presumably non-conforming opposition.

PC contends that minority individuals, amazingly, can do little wrong, because they are minorities. The consequences of their behavior, even violence, are excusable. Consider the late Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri. By age 18, he had a sealed juvenile rap sheet. It has been proven with ample evidence that he did not put his hands up and he never said the words, “Don’t shoot,” prior to his demise.

PC advocates grant the Michael Browns of the world a de facto pass in the face of their socially destructive behavior. Why? Obviously, such individuals are the “continuing victims” of the Caucasian, western male-dominated society.

One Fine Day

PC advocates, however, have no problem besmirching the following with the foulest of language: Caucasian supreme court nominees if the are Republican, and especially if they are women, or so many articulate African Americans such as Candace Owens, Ben Carson, and the late Herman Cain, among numerous others. So, it is a case of PC language for thee, but not for me!

Someday, may your descendants dwell in an era when ‘political correctness’ has been driven out of society.

So. Korea Repatriates Remains of U.S. Soldiers to Hawaii, Biden Admin Sends No Representatives

South Korea repatriated the remains of six U.S. soldiers who died fighting the Korean War, yet Biden sent no one to the ceremony.

The country of South Korea repatriated the remains of several U.S. soldiers who died fighting the Korean War, yet the Biden admin. sent no representatives at all to the ceremony.

In yet another Democrat slap in the face to our armed forces, Biden sent not one single representative to accept the gift of the remains of our brave soldiers when South Korea’s President, Moon Jae-in, and his wife, landed in Hawaii for the repatriation ceremony.

The South Korean dignitaries were met by a military honor guard when they arrived on the island of Oahu on Tuesday. But no member of the federal government was there to greet them.

The ceremony was properly solemn. Jae-In presented the remains of six U.S. soldiers whose remains were discovered recently after they had died decades ago in the 1950 to 1953 war. Jae-In also bestowed distinguished service medals posthumously to two Korean immigrant soldiers that day.

And, again, Biden sent no one.

Per Hawaii News Now:

South Korean President Moon Jae-In and First Lady Kim Jung-Sook were on Oahu Wednesday to honor fallen servicemembers.

They attended the first-ever joint repatriation ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in the afternoon.

There, the remains of 68 Republic of Korea soldiers and 6 U.S. service members who died during the Korean War were returned.

The ceremony was held to honor those fallen warriors 71 years since the start of the Korean War on June 25.

While Admiral John Christopher Aquilino was on hand, as he should have been, there should also have been at least someone from Biden’s regime.

This is just another example of how Democrats don’t care about our soldiers.

Not to mention this slap at South Korea’s president who made this personal gesture.

Didn’t liberals tell us Biden would be better for our allies?

NYC Restauranteurs Blast De Blasio’s Vax Mandates: ‘We’re Being Assaulted’

The trouble continues for Big Apple eateries.

Published

Just days ago, a wild and unruly bit of viral video made headlines, and reignited a national debate about the possibility of vaccine mandates throughout our great nation.

So far, the only real federal vaccine mandate has come in the form of an order from the Biden administration, declaring that all federal employees would be required to receive an inoculation against COVID-19, as well as employees of any private company with more than 100 workers.

But there are plenty of local and private ordinances that do require vaccination, including a controversial proclamation in New York City that requires vaccines for all restaurant customers.  The aforementioned viral video depicted a group of Texan tourists physically assaulting a restaurant hostess that asked for their proof of vaccination in order to dine in their establishment.

This shocking incident has New York City’s restauranteurs crying foul.

“It’s gonna hurt my business for me to lose customers, to lose relationships with customers. We’re a neighborhood restaurant,” restaurant owner Massimo Felici said, according to NY1. According to the outlet, Felici said the mandate, barring unvaccinated people from dining indoors, has had a negative impact on his business.

“They’re making us police this. We are getting the ripple effect. We’re getting assaulted for it, accused for it whatever you wanna call it. That’s it. Period. It shouldn’t be us,” he added, noting the rules remain unclear to most, as unvaccinated individuals can still dine outdoors.

“You’d be surprised how many people are confused about what’s allowed and what’s not allowed. If you read that, it makes it sound like you cannot come into my restaurant for dinner if you do not have the vaccination,” he said of the city’s signs.

Other establishment owners lamented the reality of the mandates being bad for business, especially as restaurants continue to struggle to reach pre-pandemic prosperity.
