Surely, a subject upon which principled conservatives can agree is that we must destroy “political correctness” in all its forms. Fascism of the mind and the tongue, PC is used by the Left as a bludgeon, in order to render discussion on certain topics (especially their little darlings, “fairness,” “tolerance,” and “diversity”) off limits.
So says Michael Walsh as part of his discussion of Maj. Hasan, the unacknowledged jihadist who attacked Ft. Hood. This topic, PC fascism, may be the root of all our disagreements in this country. In “fairness” to women we must pretend babies aren’t murdered during abortion. In “tolerance” of religion we must pretend that the Koran doesn’t direct faithful Muslims to kill the rest of us. Complaints against Obama must be the product or racism, rather than political differences, because “diversity” commands we pretend that pigment has some bearing on a person’s character. If we could finally speak the truth, instead of bowing to the PC golden calf, we might make progress in this country.
But, hey, we could have it worse: we could live in Europe where Geert Wilders is on trial for speaking the truth.
The lights are going out all over Europe. Anyone who thinks or speaks individually is at risk. Freedom loving citizens who criticize islam, or even merely suggest that there is a relationship between islam and crime buy prescription drugs online without prescription or honour killing, must suffer and are threatened or criminalized. Those who speak the truth are in danger.
We aren’t there . . . yet . . . and the time to redirect our course is now.
So far the tactic of conservatives is to point out the hypocrisy (tolerance only applies for certain liberally-loved groups) inherent in PC. See the latest mini-outrage:
Last summer, the NAACP passed a resolution that charged the Tea Party movement with racism, despite a lack of evidence to support this claim.
Ironically, the civil rights organization appears to be much more tolerant of well-documented racism at left-wing rallies. At a Common Cause–sponsored anti-Koch demonstration last week, protesters were caught on camera calling for Justice Clarence Thomas to be “sent back to the fields” and lynched. And yet, the Daily Caller is reporting, the NAACP has refused to address these comments
Reports like this happen every day. These teapot tempests will continue on forever if all conservatives can do is point at PC-fueled hypocrisy and yell, “See?” For crying out loud, quit giving these people an ounce of wind. Like Walsh recommends, agree to invalidate their entire argument. They are granted legitimacy when we move to refute. Tell the truth, ignore the PC-blusterers, and walk confidently forward. We won’t take our country back until the PC is dead.
