    I'M Here Because I Support Paula Deen

    I don't like political correctness. I also don't like crudeness, rudeness or verbal brutality. But people shouldn't be maligned and have the carpet yanked from under them for using ugly words or expressing thoughts.

    Not Needed Annoyance

    Their seems to be a couple different kinds of PC floating around. However, being PC while at the same time being true to your values without offending anyone else is pretty much impossible. Everything I say seems to offend someone, whether I mean it to or not. And many people...

    Why

    If someone is being intentionally hurtful then by all means correct them, but do people really have to go off on someone just because they didn't use the same words that they would have. Why can't people just loosen up.

    Political Correctness Accepting Lies

    Political correctness is what hides the truth in modern society. Because it is so overprotecting of every minority, one cannot speak about them without being "racist". Racism today is nothing more than a minority being able to offend a majority without having to be held...

    Poop.

    Political correctness is just bigotry in an Armani suit. Just because you dress it up all pretty and respectful does not make it any less harmful. Constantly changing and dictating the words that we can and can not use when referring to certain members of society merely widens...

    Dictatorships Depend On Political Correctness To Keep The Masses In Line.

    It Keeps People From Being Honest

    PC causes the changing history to satisfy one or two people who feel offended about something that never happened to them. PC causes us to trip over words trying not to offend people. It didn't create but it does perpetuate a "double standard." PC actually causes...

    What's worse is that

    so many people don't even know what political correctness really is! The *ideal* of political correctness is in the neighbourhood of the "if ya ain't got nothing nothing nice to say" maxim. This often amounts to censoring or changing language, often to the point of dishonesty...

    But then I turned 18, got wiser and realized how stupid it is. Here is a definition from urbandictionary.com about political correctness: "The way we speak in America so we don't offend whining *******." I think that sums it up. My generation (Generation Me) is so politically...

    Everything is too political,

    and radicalised, you can't just live your life! Too many people have an axe to grind. They seem to think they can swing the majority around on their little finger. It's wrong. Minority doesn't rule, it is majority rule, or a coalition of people prepared to work together for a...

    Zimmerman Trial What Really Happened?

    No trial has divided this country in such a way since the O.J. Simpson trial. One of the biggest reasons is the media’s decision to exert their power and try to influence public opinion. The most noteworthy example is NBC and their edited 911 tape of Zimmerman’s call in. What...

    No Story...Just A Statement/Observation

    Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Being but a simple country boy,

    I wonder if someone out there could define "political correctness" for me? Could you then state your definition not in terms of what it isn't but rather what it is and in such a way that it is impossible to tell if you are for or against it? I would really appreciate it.

    Censorship In Another Name

    Either something is untrue and shouldn't be said because it is untrue or it is true and needs to be known and people educated according to it. Nothing else matters. Political correctness is just a form of censorship and it holds us back as a species.
