Political correctness has gone too far

The examples of the ways political correctness is eroding our culture are staggering.


ST. LOUIS, Oct. 27, 2015 – When did America decide it is more important not to offend minority interests than to support our own culture?

The examples of the ways political correctness is eroding our culture are staggering.

According to Truth Revolt, school administrators at Jackson Hole High in Wyoming canceled “American Pride Day” during homecoming this year because they believed celebrating America might offend some of its students.

And while they might have saved the hurt feelings of a tiny minority, school officials deeply offended everyone else. Congratulations to those students who refused to bow to political correctness against patriotism and pride. These student went to school decked out in red, white, and blue. To make sure no one questioned their intent, some students drove a large, loud truck around the parking lot waving the American flag.

Alex Jones of Info Wars notes another example. According to him, “In America today, there are many groups that are absolutely obsessed with eradicating every mention of God out of the public sphere.  For example, an elementary school in North Carolina ordered a little 6-year-old girl to remove the word “God” from a poem that she wrote to honor her two grandfathers that had served in the Vietnam War.”

Judicial Watch notes that a new Army manual instructs soldiers to “avoid any criticism of pedophilia” and to “avoid criticizing anything related to Islam.” Is it possibly true we are worried about insulting a pedophile?

Obama vs Warren: Politically correct liberals devouring their own

With Christmas approaching, there will be many actions to destroying the true meaning of Christmas by dis-allowing using “Christ” in “Christmas” or prohibiting display of the nativity scene while we all say “Happy Holidays!” instead of “Merry Christmas!”

While it is fine to say “Happy Holidays,” it is also fine to say “Merry Christmas.” Why should we hide our Christian beliefs?

Could it be that all the above is happening do to having a problem with some of our influential politicians? Could it be that they have allegiance to their large money donors and are beholden to special interest groups and the media?

We should take an attitude of what the character in the movie “Network” said: “I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore.” Americans need to stand up, by voting and by participating in the activities of our country. We need to let Washington know we are tired of their actions and are demanding change.

Political correctness has gone too far. It’s time to forget the political part and to just be correct.

However, that’s from a time and place I am from.
