Political Correctness is...

A growing Conservative Social Issue is Political Correctness. It’s often seen as a slightly funny effort to keep from hurting the feelings of another. And today there are many do’s and don’ts drilled into our heads on what we can and cannot say. “PC” is not funny, however; it’s deadly serious. This is definitely a Conservative Social Issue. Look at its history below:

  • “PC” was a movement deliberately started by Marxists in 1923 to do away with Democracies and draw people to Marxism. Under Marxism, the individual is nothing, and Political Correctness was a means of helping destroy Democracy, the stated goal of Marxists. The founders wanted to change speech and thought patterns to this end and to call this change something that sounds positive. They chose Political Correctness. The last thing the founders wanted was to have this new movement associated with the Marxist Movement, or its outgrowths, Socialism and Communism. They pretty well succeeded, because today, most people don’t know of this early history.
  • Political Correctness has been used by most of the 20th century dictators to gain complete control over a country. One example is in the early years of Castro’s Cuba (1959) “PC” was used to whitewash the repression and violations of human rights happening under Castro, where thousands of people were jailed, killed, or never heard of again, and make the evil-doers doing the killing look like saints. Cubans learned early on what was safe to say and what wasn’t. Soon, Castro had complete control of speech, and then of Cuba. He used the tools of education and media to accomplish this.
  • In the 1960’s, “PC” was the perfect tool for the student rebellion against the Vietnam War and the draft. Student rebels needed an ideology to legitimize their rants, “Hell no, we won’t go” and “Make love, not war.” One of the founders of Marxist Political Correctness, Herbert Marcuse, introduced “PC” on American college campuses. This became a completely free theory where one didn’t have to work, had no hang-ups, where there was a free-love-and-do-your-own-thing-like drugs mentality, and for 1960s rebels, “if it feels good, do it.” What a wonderful message for the 1960’s radicals.“Liberating Tolerance” became intolerance for anyone thinking differently from the then politically correct crowd.

Today,“PC” has grown to be a huge conservative social issue that has a stranglehold on American society. “Political Correctness is not funny. It’s growing, and it will eventually destroy anything we have ever defined as our freedom and our culture.”*
