20 Outrageous Examples That Show How Political Correctness Is Taking Over America

The thought police are watching you.  Back in the 1990s, lots of jokes were made about “political correctness”, and almost everybody thought they were really funny.  Unfortunately, very few people are laughing now because political correctness has become a way of life in America.  If you say the “wrong thing” you could lose your job or you could rapidly end up in court.  Every single day, the mainstream media bombards us with subtle messages that make it clear what is “appropriate” and what is “inappropriate”, and most Americans quietly fall in line with this unwritten speech code.  But just because it is not written down somewhere does not mean that it isn’t real.  In fact, this speech code becomes more restrictive and more suffocating with each passing year.  The goal of the “thought Nazis” is to control what people say to one another, because eventually that will shape what most people think and what most people believe.  If you don’t think this is true, just try the following experiment some time.  Go to a public place where a lot of people are gathered and yell out something horribly politically incorrect such as “I love Jesus” and watch people visibly cringe.  The name of “Jesus” has become a curse word in our politically correct society, and we have been trained to have a negative reaction to it in public places.  After that, yell out something politically correct such as “I support gay marriage” and watch what happens.  You will probably get a bunch of smiles and quite a few people may even approach you to express their appreciation for what you just said.  Of course this is going to vary depending on what area of the country you live in, but hopefully you get the idea.  Billions of dollars of media “programming” has changed the definitions of what people consider to be “acceptable” and what people consider to be “not acceptable”.  Political correctness shapes the way that we all communicate with each other every single day, and it is only going to get worse in the years ahead.  Sadly, most people simply have no idea what is happening to them.

The following are 20 outrageous examples that show how political correctness is taking over America…

#1 According to a new Army manual, U.S. soldiers will now be instructed to avoid “any criticism of pedophilia” and to avoid criticizing “anything related to Islam”.  The following is from a recent Judicial Watch article

The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”

#2 The Obama administration has banned all U.S. government agencies from producing any training materials that link Islam with terrorism.  In fact, the FBI has gone back and purged references to Islam and terrorism from hundreds of old documents.

#3 Authorities are cracking down on public expressions of the Christian faith all over the nation, and yet atheists in New York City are allowed to put up an extremely offensive billboard in Time Square this holiday season that shows a picture of Jesus on the cross underneath a picture of Santa with the following tagline: “Keep the Merry! Dump the Myth!

#4 According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, it is illegal for employers to discriminate against criminals because it has a “disproportionate” impact on minorities.

#5 Down in California, Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill that will allow large numbers of illegal immigrants to legally get California driver’s licenses.

#6 Should an illegal immigrant be able to get a law license and practice law in the United States?  That is exactly what the State Bar of California argued earlier this year…

An illegal immigrant applying for a law license in California should be allowed to receive it, the State Bar of California argues in a filing to the state Supreme Court.

Sergio Garcia, 35, of Chico, Calif., has met the rules for admission, including passing the bar exam and the moral character review, and his lack of legal status in the United States should not automatically disqualify him, the Committee of Bar Examiners said Monday.

#7 More than 75 percent of the babies born in Detroit are born to unmarried women, yet it is considered to be “politically correct” to suggest that there is anything wrong with that.

#8 The University of Minnesota – Duluth (UMD) initiated an aggressive advertising campaign earlier this year that included online videos, billboards, and lectures that sought to raise awareness about “white privilege“.

#9 At one high school down in California, five students were sent home from school for wearing shirts that displayed the American flag on the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo.

#10 Chris Matthews of MSNBC recently suggested that it is “racist” for conservatives to use the word “Chicago”.

#11 A judge down in North Carolina has ruled that it is unconstitutional for North Carolina to offer license plates that say “Choose Life” on them.

#12 The number of gay characters on television is at an all-time record high.  Meanwhile, there are barely any strongly Christian characters to be found anywhere on television or in the movies, and if they do happen to show up they are almost always portrayed in a very negative light.

#13 House Speaker John Boehner recently stripped key committee positions from four “rebellious” conservatives in the U.S. House of Representatives.  It is believed that this “purge” happened in order to send a message that members of the party better fall in line and support Boehner in his negotiations with Barack Obama.

#14 There is already a huge push to have a woman elected president in 2016.  It doesn’t appear that it even matters which woman is elected.  There just seems to be a feeling that “it is time” for a woman to be elected even if she doesn’t happen to be the best candidate.

#15 Volunteer chaplains for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have been banned from using the name of Jesus on government property.

#16 Chaplains in the U.S. military are being forced to perform gay marriages, even if it goes against their personal religious beliefs.  The few chaplains that have refused to follow orders know that it means the end of their careers.

#17 All over the country, the term “manhole” is being replaced with the terms “utility hole” or “maintenance hole”.

#18 In San Francisco, authorities have installed small plastic “privacy screens” on library computers so that perverts can continue to exercise their “right” to watch pornography at the library without children being exposed to it.

#19 You will never guess what is going on at one college up in Washington state

A Washington college said their non-discrimination policy prevents them from stopping a transgender man from exposing himself to young girls inside a women’s locker room, according to a group of concerned parents.

#20 All over America, liberal commentators are now suggesting that football has become “too violent” and “too dangerous” and that it needs to be substantially toned down.  In fact, one liberal columnist for the Boston Globe is even proposing that football should be banned for anyone under the age of 14.

    Michael, how would you feel if extremist Christian terrorists attacked a people, and, in response, that people connected Christianity to terrorism, thus implying that all Christians are terrorists? Would you like to be labeled as a terrorist?

    • Bad Kitty Cat

      There is NO labeling involved with saying a terrorist group holds certain beliefs! I believe he is commenting on how crazy it is to sacrifice important information on these groups–many with strong religeous convictions that strongly influence their behaviour–for the sake of political correctness!

    • Ralfine

      Let’s have a look at the terrorists in Northern Ireland – they are all Christians.
      Basically all political and religious groups had and have their terrorist organisations.

      • otter1111

        They may call themselves Christians, but they are not following the teachings of the church. Also, most of the violence has stopped since about 1998.

        • Tony

          Same can be said of the terrorists who claim to be Muslim. “They may call themselves Muslims, but they are not following the teachings of the Koran.”

    The Public Relations People strike again. There is nothing new about political correctness. A good PR person(not man, not woman) can convince someone of their own free will to do whatever they want them to by staging things right.

    It has been politically correct to do a lot of things and it has gone on for a very long time.
    I remember when: Hairstyles had to be politically correct for you to find work(1970s). All the best hairstylists had to be gay! Computer techs had to look like they slept in their clothes(maybe they did). IBM had a correct dress code and everyone had to abide by it to stay employed. It is politically incorrect to show any kind of stereotype or prejudice. It is incorrect to be a gentleman and open doors for women and children. Equality is king or is that queen?

    That is just the beginning.
    Christians are old fashioned and out of taste. Tell that to all the women out there working two jobs to support themselves and their illegitimate children. I remember when the respectable thing to do was get married, committed to one another, and raise a family in a decent environment. So I am politically incorrect and probably will be the rest of my life.
    I am Christian and proud of it. I believe in miracles. I consider myself literate in science. I believe in Christ and I am not ashamed of it.

    I think every religion has decent people and terrible people. The Bible says you may judge them by their actions. We are talking about the fruits of their harvest rather than what they say.

    The different countries and cultures speak volumes about just who they are and how they act towards their women, children, foreigners, and those of a different belief system than their own. I am politically correct because I have not mentioned names. We all can put names to this description.

    I think the many varieties of Christian show just as much who they are as well. Not all Christians practice what they preach. That does not make all Christians bad. Just those that practice lying and deceit.
    The same goes for just about every religion on the planet.
    If we are controlled it is by our bias. It is what is acceptable socially that controls most people. This changes with time. It changes with the way PR agencies have manipulated what is socially acceptable.
    So even if you are completely right, the PR people can make it look like you are a fool and wrong. I suggest they get very big salaries to perform this alteration of society. It has been used to manipulate people for a very long time. This dates back to hidden persuaders in the 1950s or even earlier.

      It’s interesting to know, and most don’t, that Political Correctness was an intentional “invention” of socialists at the Frankfurt School back around 1930 to bring Marxist social conventions into mainstream society. Political Correctness has been accurately described as Cultural Marxism. Yes. PC is indeed a Marxist tool of conquest.

  • Jodi

    #14 It will be Hilary for the Dems and nobody will be able to beat her because the media will portray her as the most compassionate candidate for the gays, Latinos & women’s rights. The media will smear no matter who is running on the other side & make them look like a murderer, liar, hides his money in the Cayman Islands, hates women, Latinos, gays & the poor. Pretty much the same tactics they used for Obama. On that note, there seems to be a lot of rumors that the Republicans want to run Jeb Bush for prez in 2016. Once again, instead of trying to win they will loose because Jeb is the same as Romney. It seems like a loosing battle. We are in so much trouble.

    I think PC pressure is redefining America, and it’s made worse by TV. I think one of the worst things that’s happening is the emasculation of American men. Pop culture and the PC crowd are trying so hard to blur the lines between men and women, and it’s working. Men see themselves as lazy, incompetent dolts, being pulled on puppet strings by their wives. I see men all the time refer to their wife as “their real boss.” It’s okay in jest, but it’s seriously become more than a joke, and men are forgetting how to be men. And women, you are beautiful; please stop dressing like men! Down with pant suits. Yuck! G*d made us different for a reason.

    And again, I know this is unpopular, but there are way too many mothers of school-aged children in the workplace. Of course some of them have no choice, and my heart goes out to those women. But a great many do so because they want to. I worked in corporate America long enough to realize that “need” can be manufactured (it may be last thing left that Americans manufacture).

    And what to say about #11, the banning of pro-life license plates… Lord, help us. The way we have managed to devalue life in this country makes me think that we are so broke, only God himself can fix us.

    • Tony

      God? I laugh at the notion. Riddle me this:

      God created man. God can see the future and all that is for He is omnipotent. He created man knowing the fate of man. He then asks man to do certain things that some will not do, already knowing this because He knows all. He already knows those who oppose Him will before they are even created. If that isn’t Sadism, I do not know what is. He is literally creating some just to punish them. Once more, He gives man the concept of will and choice but creates them already knowing their fates. He chooses to not help, to let some suffer, because He wants to. And furthermore, to decline this is to say God truly isn’t omnipotent, that He is less than a God, THE God. So my question is this, why?

  • jim

    You are clearly biased towards Christianity. Which is fine, but, really, who cares that there are less Christians on TV? As an atheist I see this as a welcome development. The football thing too is understandable if you are up to date on all of the gambling and slumminess of pop warner. Concussions. That’s ok.

    Everything else is ridiculous. Especially #19.

    • Ralfine

      When I watch an american movie I see a disproportionate number of Christians and patriots. Even kid’s movies have the american flag and some form of hymn singing. It often reminds me of the old communist propaganda films for children.

      • otter1111

        Positive portrayals of Christians in the movies, especially Catholics, are extremely rare. They are almost always portrayed as corrupt, hypocrites or fools. But I’ll bet you can’t find a movie where a homosexual character is looked at in a bad light.

        • Ralfine

          You’d probably lose the bet. Check out all the gay themed movies and sitcoms and you’ll find enough bad characters.
          I think Queer as folk should have a bad character portrayed.

    Oh come on, the lady was sitting in the sauna and getting changed in the locker room.

    OK, there were some muslim girls present who haven’t seen male genitals before.

    But staring is impolite. Just look away.

    Next time have another woman present to seee whether the lady in question was just changing clothes or whether she was displaying herself.

    Time to introduce mixed saunas in the US. What’s wrong with looking at god’s creation anyway?

    • http://www.facebook.com/tabitha.elkins Tabitha Elkins

      If your daughter was in a “women’s locker room” and a man came in swinging his you-know-what, wouldn’t you be concerned? If you have a penis, you are a man. Sorry, there is no “hermaphrodite” dressing room, but if you are a person with a penis, you need to go to the MEN’S locker room. Are we so lost as a society that we have no more common sense?

      • Ralfine

        No, I wouldn’t be concerned. My nieces (don’t have daughters) have been taught to scream. And they have seen naked men at the beach. Anyway, where they live in Europe, the locker rooms are mixed. Only the changing cubicle is large enough for 1 person with a kid.

        And where I lived, in Hong Kong, the locker roooms are always attended by cleaners. But then, over there men who go to locker rooms, don’t have problems with anyone changing there. There is no rough housing and stupid banter in locker rooms as is customary in western societies.

        Anyway, the article wasn’t about a man. It was about a transsexual, who by nature is not interested in the usual (and dangerous) male behaviour, which is why s/he prefers not to go to the male locker room.

        • Tabitha Elkins

          Couldn’t a rapist simply dress as a transvestite to get into the women’s locker room? Or are you convinced that a rapist would never think of that?

        • http://pressingtheissue.com Mike Cain

          Prizilla – That’s all fine in Europe and Japan where it is their established culture. Good for them. It is not fine here! It is important to be tolerant of others and to try to be respectful of their lifestyles’, even if they revolt some of us.

          HOWEVER, that stops when those with said “alternate lifestyles” start to impose them upon the rest of us. What’s next, Apologizing for pedophilia? Oh wait-that is already happening now!

            Next is Trump for President. LOL

    I don’t think this is due to anything having to do with women or women’s liberation. I’ve heard of a gay bar called “The Manhole” and you can figure out to what it refers.

    “#11 A judge down in North Carolina has ruled that it is unconstitutional for North Carolina to offer license plates that say “Choose Life” on them.”

    Did you even read the article you cite???

    “A federal judge has ruled it is unconstitutional for North Carolina to issue pro-life license plates unless the state offers similar plates supporting abortion rights…
    During the 2011 legislative session, the North Carolina General Assembly passed House Bill 289, which authorized the issuance of a “Choose Life” license plate.
    However, officials say the legislature repeatedly refused to authorize a plate that supported the countervailing position in favor of reproductive freedom….”

    What a travesty! PC is a fascistic way of thinking – or, rather, a way of NOT thinking at all! It’s mind control in all its ugly manifestations and should be banned from all areas of intellectual pursuit. The fact that it’s infested today’s college & university campuses is a travesty – and tragedy – in and of itself.

    Ok-I admit to being a realist,believing that truth is fact and it can’t be changed just to suit a ridiculous agenda. But, somebody please tell me there is at least one or two others who feel the same way. It is tough always being right, when you are alone.
