Evils of left-wing Political Correctness

    Political correctness is insanity.I am embarrassed to admit that we started all this crap back in the 1960’s.

    However, our original intentions were right. Racism, sexism, anti-Semitism and homophobia were some pretty serious problems back then, and non-Whites, women and gays all needed their respective Liberation movements.

    Come to think of it, these are still significant problems, and true, cruel and brutal prejudice against non-Whites, women, Jews and gays still really ought to be called out.

    The problem is that none of those groups should be beyond critique either (in fact, no group period should be beyond critique) and that is what PC has done: it has made all of these groups beyond critique.

    But now, it’s all gone completely too far into the sheer insanity and dare I say evil of PC.No one can criticize either gender, any racial, ethnic or religious group, and don’t you dare say anything bad about folks who are not completely heterosexual.

    Worse, PC has become a club that is conveniently wielded to beat up your enemies.If you can’t attack your enemies on any other grounds, just call them names: racist, sexist, anti-Semite, woman-hater, homophobe, self-hating gay, self-hating Jew, or whatever.

    PC is an unmitigated catastrophe and it’s one of the worst evils of our modern era.On the other hand, the typical response to the evils, yes evils, of PC is to engage in the most grotesque prejudicial abuse of non-Whites, women and gays. That’s not ok either.

    All of these groups deserve equal rights and deserve to be as free of prejudicial abuse and discrimination as possible.But PC is not the way to go about it.

    PC is using a sledgehammer to kill a fly and in the meantime destroying the kitchen counter.

    Nice copy pasta.

    Don't be so sensitive, racist, sexist, homophobic, they're just words, stop whining and get on with it.

    ...I guess you think the N word and ****** are just words too...

    These are words, yes. But the actual purpose of words is to create ideas, feelings, etc
    People should use them more carefully and not loosely throw them about, inoculating people against, or tarring the initial meaning
