WASHINGTON: The election of Donald Trump as president showed the facade of virtue-signaling political correctness – the left-wing’s counterfeit morality – is cracking and, quite frankly, easily upended. It’s destructive gangs, like the Crips or Soviet Cheka, no longer hold sway over people like Donald Trump and Kanye West.
Defeating them requires one to, in the words of former First Lady Nancy Reagan, “Just Say No.”
Think like me, speak like me
While Republicans met at their 2016 national convention in Cleveland, Ohio, Mark Hannah, a supposed expert on global media freedom and public culture at New York University, wrote in Time magazine:
“The opposite of political correctness is not unvarnished truth-telling. It is a political expression that is careless toward the beliefs and attitudes different than one’s own. In its more extreme fashion, it is incivility, indecency or vulgarity. These are the true alternatives to political correctness. These are the traits that Trump tacitly touts when he criticizes political correctness. And these are the essential attributes of Trump’s candidacy.”
A one-way street
So, it’s more than a little ironic that the defeated Democratic presidential candidate of 2016, Hillary Clinton, felt no compunction in calling Trump voters misogynistic, racist and just plain deplorable.
New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow, a good man of the left, attacked the triumphant Trump, and indirectly his supporters, saying:
“The Trump Doctrine is White Supremacy. Yes, he is also diplomatically inept, overwhelmed by avarice, thoroughly corrupt and a pathological liar, but it is to white supremacy and to hostility for everyone not white that he always returns.”
And when Republicans were moving a tax reform bill through Congress last December, Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi described it as a debate over “life and death” and its passage the equivalent of “Armageddon.”
A bludgeon of the left
Contrary to the claims by Professor Hannah, political correctness is the exclusive tool by which the left promotes “incivility, indecency, “vulgarity,” and is, “careless toward the beliefs and attitudes different than one’s own.”
“I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct,” said Trump during the campaign. “I’ve been challenged by so many people, and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either.”
Bye, bye PC
Trump defines the purpose of political correctness as instilling a sense of self-doubt in decent Americans.
Political correctness is,
“where people are so worried about being politically correct that they are unable to function.”
Paralysis in the face of the left is PC’s true function.
According to Anne Andary-Brophy, Department of Psychology, University of Toronto:
“The term ‘political correctness’ was used as early as 1921, however, the ideological concept was invented 27 years later, as a criterion of Marxism-Leninism. In 1894, Lenin created partiinost’, which translates to party membership, party-mindedness, party spirit, or party truth.”
Or political correctness, leftist-style.
President Trump’s “dragon energy,” to quote Kanye West, freed him from the tyranny of the left’s “party truth” of political morals. This explains what is at the heart of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Calling for some PC Police backup… Daz Dillinger calls a Crips Alert
But it’s difficult to enforce PC on moral suasion alone.
Daz Dillinger, a rapper, and former Snoop Dogg hanger-on, has hit on a solution to deal with Kanye West’s favorable Trump tweets:
“Yo national alert, all the Crips out there, y’all f%&k Kanye up… Better not ever see you around California. Cuz we got a Crip alert for Kanye.”
According to the Department of Justice (DOJ), there are around 35,000 Crip gang members throughout the U.S. Their “criminal activity includes “assault, auto theft, burglary, and homicide,” says the DOJ.
The Soviet Cheka
In 1918, “Iron” Felix Dzerzhinsky, who led Soviet Russia’s dreaded secret police (Cheka), was just as blunt:
“We stand for organized terror – this should be frankly admitted. Terror is an absolute necessity during times of revolution.”
Think of PC as the psychological equivalent of the Crips or Soviet Cheka. By abandoning political correctness, you “have nothing to lose but your chains.”
