The Term “Politically Correct” Is Now ‘Politically Incorrect’
According to Campus Reform, the phrase “Politically Correct” is a microaggression according to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The university’s “Just Words” campaign is the work of UWM’s “Inclusive Excellence Center” and aims to “raise awareness of microaggressions and their impact”—microaggressions like “Politically Correct” or “PC.”
Merriam-Webster defines “politically correct” as “conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be eliminated.” The university, however, claims that calling something “politically correct” “has become a way to deflect, [and say] that people are being too ‘sensitive’ and police language.” “Politically correct,” moreover, is just one of a whole host of words and phrases the university has denounced as micro aggressions.
Now if only somebody would explain WTF a “microaggression” is, some of this PC Bullshit might start to make sense.
“The flower pictured here is called this, also a disparaging term for people on the political left,” the question read.
After 30 seconds, Alex Trebek asked the first contestant to reveal her answer and said he “had a feeling” she was going to find a way “to insult Liberals in this country.”
Sure enough, the female contestant, NPR News Producer Becky Sullivan who wagered her entire $6,000, answered, “What is a pansy?”
“Yep, you found a way to insult liberals in this country,” Trebek said as the audience and contestants laughed.
The final contestant answered that question correctly — “what is a bleeding heart?” — although Trebek said he liked the other answer. And people on social media seemed to agree. Views on YouTube of Sullivan’s answer have rocketed to more than $715,000 in just three days since the show aired.
And you still say all this political correctness crap isn’t destroying America?
If things keep devolving from Bad to Diverse, one of these days a Council-Gay in Cincinnati might even try to fund-raise as much as $24,250 after some Twitterhead with too much time on his hands tweeted: “He should wear a skirt to meetings.” Oh, the humanity!
Being “Politically Correct” means always having to say you’re sorry, according to all those Dumbed-Down, Self-Absorbed, Media-Influenced, Celebrity-Obsessed, Politically-Correct, Uninformed, Short-Attention-Span, Free-Stuff Grabbing, Low-Information Obama Supporters Who Put The Positively Worst President in History In The White House—Twice, and Now Plan To Give Obama a Third Term By Voting For Crooked Hillary, and get all of their “fake news” from our Obama Supporters in the Press, like the ones at The Fishwrap, and on Channels 5, 9, 12, and 19.
