The Inevitable Result Of Political Correctness

"By using the excuse of not upsetting anyone, the politically correct are demanding that people behave like the fool who would please everyone; that everyone must become such a fool! All must accept the notions of the Politically Correct as truth, or else! This is the same mentality that inspired the Inquisition and forced Galileo to recant; the same mentality that inspired the Nazis and obtained the Holocaust. Once expression gets placed in a straitjacket of official truth, then the madness that occurs in all totalitarian states is obtained. Life, in private and public, becomes a meaningless charade where delusion thrives and terror rules."
His definition of political correctness is here.

Political Correctness:The Scourge of Our Times

..."With profound dismay, I have seen how the scourge of Political Correctness has taken hold in the U.S. It is very well entrenched in our educational system, at scientific, religious and community levels, the media, the workplace and even our government.

It is changing the American society from within, and the citizens of this nation are increasingly censoring themselves and losing their freedom of speech out of fear of Political Correctness repression.

It is the nature of Western Civilization to be civilized – respectful of others and concerned with correcting injustices. We don't need Political Correctness to make us think we are not civilized on our own and must have our thoughts and words restricted."

Purging the Political Correctness Within

..."Political correctness is not just an ideology; it is an attitude. And although the ideology may be dying out, it can live on in the attitudes many of us have absorbed from our culture -- a culture that has been ravaged and dominated by political correctness for decades. We need to exorcise its spirit.

As an ideology, political correctness says that some ideas, attitudes and peaceful behavior are unacceptable and should be legally discouraged. Acceptable ones should be encouraged by law. Thus discrimination against "minorities," such as women (who are actually a majority), is prohibited in both the public and private sector. Discrimination in favor of minorities is mandated through the de facto quotas imposed by policies like affirmative action.

But political correctness is also an attitude. The politically correct arrogantly expropriate "the truth" and deny the possibility of honest disagreement. To them it is a given: anyone who dissents does so because of ill motives -- e.g. economic greed, patriarchal power-lust, racism. To the PC, society is a battleground on which classes of people representing good and evil conflict: black versus white, female versus male, Western culture versus the "emerging nations." The coin of the realm is collective victimhood, not individual responsibility.

I demand a civil society that respects the individual and acknowledges the existence of honest disagreement between human beings of good will. But getting there means rooting out not only the ideology of political correctness but also the attitudes many of us have adopted almost by osmosis from our culture..."

Every time Islamic violence erupts another ten places, we are told that these extremists represent a small fraction of Muslims and It really is a religion of peace. The problem is I don't hear any moderate Muslims. The best the press can find is apologists or appeasers. I don't hear any major Muslim leaders using their religious bully pulpit to call for calm, or tolerance or even human decency. If there are any moderate Muslims, they are scared of the jihadis just like the rest of the West. They all fear inflaming the irrational, religion-fueled, hate machine that carries the Islamist flag into battle.

I don't fear the person who has told me they wish to kill me; once that taboo is breached things become quite simple. I kill him first, no quibbling, no moral quandary. Matter of fact, I have an obligation to kill the man who has sworn to kill me. I have children and am obliged to provide for them, and ignoring or appeasing someone dedicated to killing me, and by extension them is abdicating that resonsibility. In this case our government is my surrogate and I absolutely expect them to be actively engaged in anything likely to speed these savages along to their 72 goats.

Islam...a peaceful religion? Who's kidding who! Here's most of it. It's worth reading all here.
Here in the West, we have been dumbfounded by our religious and political leaders’ propaganda and bloodthirsty rhetoric. The following are some examples of this horrific situation that we have heard in our travels:

  • We went to Mass the other day, and the priest in his homily said that it was our “obligation” as Catholics to kill the infidel.

  • We went to our friend’s house yesterday, and he said his protest-ant pastor called for the U.S. to set the nation of Iraq and all the Holy Land ablaze in honor of God.

  • The Vatican is releasing a new dogma to be promulgated in which the pope states that all those who kill innocent people in the Name of God will go directly to Paradise upon their death and be serviced by beautiful virgins.

  • Our Jewish friend was telling us that his rabbi is raising funds to pay families in Israel who have their children strap themselves with explosives and kill anyone who believes in anything other than Judaism.

  • We were at the airport the other day and were watching some hare krishna devotees who were soliciting funds to buy weapons to free their holy land.

  • At a UFO convention, believers in extraterrestrials were told that aliens were getting ready to wipe out all evil on Earth by establishing the right of a Palestinian state for Palestinians only with Jerusalem as its capital.

  • In a news conference, the president of the United States, along with allies from Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, Australia, and other nations, said that it is important for Americans to kill anyone who espouses a belief in islam. The president stated that we were not to trust anyone with a beard or who wears a veil.

  • The National Organization for Women has issued an emergency statement yesterday that NO cost — be it economic or in human lives — was too great to bear to free the women of the Middle East from male-dominated, chauvinistic societies.

  • In a coordinated news conference to correspond with NOW’s emergency statement, Amnesty International also issued a statement that the world could no longer tolerate any islamic regime that tortures or kills people because they believe in another religion. AI specifically singled out Saudi Arabia as one of the worst offenders in this regard and suggested that the Bush administration should consider overthrowing the government of this hostile nation.

  • A spokes“person” for the American Civil Liberties Union said that in order to secure the complete and total civil liberties of every American citizen in America, it was using all the power and authority at its command to ensure the president of the U.S. utilized Weapons of Mass Destruction to destroy any threat from any foreign government or terrorist organization that could conceivably keep Americans from enjoying their freedom and rights.

  • Finally, the United Nations issued a “fatah” stating that it had had enough of Holy Land violence and was declaring martial law in the region. The UN said that until the threat of fanatical islam is wiped from the face of the Earth, the world government body knew peace in our time could not be attained. It, therefore, has decreed that its No. 1 priority is to ensure islamic terrorist theology not be preached, taught, or used to enflame the masses of gullible human beings who do not believe their lives have any value as their political leaders amass fortunes and rob what little the people have as they send even their young children off to a suicidal, maniacal and homicidal end.

  • In other news, clerics and other islamic religious leaders throughout the world issued direct orders to all moslems that no one was to engage in violence for any reason, and that all arms were to be given up to cognizant authorities in their area. In a final note after this religious-enforced decree, islamic leaders blessed all the people of the world, no matter what their beliefs, and asked that the world live in peace in honor of God.
