The practice of political correctness in this country use to be something of almost a joke back in the ’90s during the Clinton Administration. However, that is not the case anymore. Political Correctness has evolved into something of a plague that is infecting every aspect of American politics, culture, society, business and even in national security.
Political correctness has become a one of the most revered practices by our politicians within the last few years. It has transformed most politicians (not all) into spineless, wimpy individuals who have no principles, no character and do NOT stand for anything longer than a week. Now, the liberal doctrine of political correctness has negatively impacted two major issues facing our country today: Illegal Immigration and Islamic Jihad.
The liberals who are running our country now are so bent on being politically correct (not to offend anyone) that they are willing to NOT enforce illegal immigration laws. What are we afraid of? Some harsh words from a hypocritical Marxist Mexican President that runs a government full of socialistic thieves? The cost of this behavior is enormous. Crime by illegals, the handouts given to illegals at taxpayer’s expense and no respect for the American flag and heritage. These people coming across our borders illegally are CRIMINALS, thieves, rapists and should be treated as such under AMERICAN law! They are not people who are in a “rock and a hard place.” They chose to cross illegally and should face the consequences of that action.
More recently our leaders and even corporations are bending over backwards to not offend anyone in the Muslim community. Why? I have no idea because those same people have no problem with offending Christians and Jews. We have a President who does not like to use the term “War on Terror” for the reason that it might offend Muslims. Islamic Jihad was declared on the United States on 9-11-2001. Since that time Radical Islam has been on a mission to carry out attacks on America and Israel with only one purpose: To destroy and kill. To be afraid of using certain words in a time of war is a cowardly act and the wrong message to send to our enemies.
Political correctness has even brought this country to a point where CAIR (The Council on American-Islamic Relations) threatens political activists from speaking out against Muslims. My response to that is too bad CAIR. That is the reality of living in a country based on individual liberty. I can speak out against democrats, republicans, religion, science, schools and anything else I feel like speaking out against. That is what unabridged freedom of speech is all about. If CAIR cannot accept criticism, then please leave our country and do not come back.
It is time that our leaders stop being afraid of offending someone and defend our Constitution, our liberties, our freedom and all the LEGAL, tax-paying American citizens. Political correctness in America is not neutral, but is a practice that censures and limits free speech and the press.
