    Recently, James Hudnall at Big Hollywood chose the top five reasons that political correctness – the form of mass psychosis that recently put an unqualified Marxist community activist in the Oval Office — must die. Now he tells us how to kill it in five easy steps:

    1. Honesty: The Miss California incident showed one way to fight back successsfully. Stand your ground and stick to your guns. It certainly helped that she had an ally in Donald Trump who saw how popular she became and how much press she was getting. One way to [beat] PC is to stop playing the game. Look for supporters who agree with you and back each other up.
    2. Organize: Like-minded people need to band together to fight injustice and PC is injustice. Form groups with others. We should create an acronym organization that is a pressure group against PC. Since PC got its way for many years thanks to pressure groups, we should form one to counter it. What do we call it? STFU comes to mind, but I'm sure we can think of something catchier.
    3. Fight Back: If you get into trouble for not being PC, don't roll over like Don Imus did or many others who knuckled under. Work with groups who support you and don't let the media tell you how you're supposed to act. If people call for you to be fired for saying something that wasn't what they claim it to be, don't let them push you around. Bullies need to get smacked back. Teach them a lesson.
    4. Unity: We need to stick together to overcome those things that are a threat to our freedoms. PC is only part of a larger problem. But taking care of it is a great start. Stick by your fellow PC critics and back them up. Together we can do this.
    5. Speak Out: Finally, when you see the media being PC or promoting some absurd PC agenda, email or write them. Do the same to politicians. Make sure they get the message that the people are not supporting this nonsense anymore. If they get enough mail like this they will get the message. Believe it.
    The important thing is never to accept political correctness as if it were sane, no matter how pervasive it's become. The Ascension of the Moonbat Messiah brought us to the edge of an abyss. If we let momentum push us even one step farther, we plunge into utter insanity. But a backlash could bring us back from the brink.

    Good advice. Being an independent cuss and believing in free speech, when someone tries to "correct" me with their PC crap I always say I will use my own words and not let anyone tell me what to say. I don't insult anyone personally in a one on one nor do I spout off in public, but when I'm with friends I use my own words. My favorite expression is "He ain't gay, he's queer."

    Of course, it never occurs to people who complain about political correctness that calling something political correctness is itself, a form of political correctness.

    And as far as PC goes, both sides have their language fascists, don't they?

    We don't have to go back too far to understand the power of language and the power that controlling language and therefore opinion and thought gives a regime. Orwell showed us.

    Partisan whining I think suits it.

    Language fascism works, too,

    PC fascism just a form of political sniping using semantics to obfuscate the fact that some people see things one way, and other see it another way, really.

    Remember Reagans "Nicaraguian Contra freedom fighters"?

    Well, had those people been fighting on the other side, Reagan would have called them Contra terrorists.

    Which description you think best suits those guys really depends on your politics, doesn't it?

    Therefore, which side was being POLITICALLY correct?

    Both of them, really.
