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.

Manhunt Ensues After Possible Ex-Cop Commits Massacre in Texas

Authorities are telling residents to shelter in place.

Published

The citizens of Austin, Texas are on high alert Sunday afternoon after a massacre left at least three people dead with the suspect still at large as of this writing. Law enforcement has identified the suspected killer, and are scouring the city looking for clues. A massive multi-agency manhunt including the FBI and U.S. Marshals is underway in Austin for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex late Sunday morning. Austin police said that the three lifeless bodies were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male. They said they believe the suspect is Stephen Nicholas Broderick, who is possibly a former law enforcement officer charged with sexual assault of a child last summer. Austin’s KXAN, citing an arrest affidavit, reported last June that the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective was on administrative leave following an arrest for allegations of sexual assault. Police had some very specific ideas of what could come next in the case. The Austin Police Department said the suspect was still at large as of approximately 2:30 p.m. local time and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have urged everyone nearby to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. “We are concerned he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave,” Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Police said that the victims were known to Broderick, but did not elaborate any further.

Biden Team Sends Stern Threat to Russia Over Navalny’s Health

This is just the latest escalation in the war of words between these two nations.

Published

While every nation on this planet likely harbors some sort of terrible secret, or some evil underpinnings, no one plays the role of international bad guy quite like Russia does. The enormous nation has no real qualms about the world knowing its business, and Vladimir Putin has held onto power for as long as he as by doing the bare minimum required to keep him from being called a dictator. Beyond that, the nation appears fond of strongman-shenanigans like poisoning and jailing dissident journalists like Alexi Navalny, who is on death’s door in a Russian prison camp. If he dies, US President Joe Biden says that the Kremlin will pay the price. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser warned Sunday that there will be repercussions for Russia if Putin critic Alexei Navalny dies, amid reports that his health is rapidly deteriorating in prison. “We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr. Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” Jake Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Biden has had a fairly poor relationship with Russia doing his first few months in office, with the two nations issuing not-so-subtle statements and threats in each others’ direction.
