There are no formulas to apply to written or spoken words to indicate the person writing or spewing their froth is calling upon implanted knee-jerk rhetoric of the politically correct (PC) type.
Merely disagreeing with an opinion or belief does not make it PC. But, I have noticed that what I believe to be PC-laden folks bashing those with differing opinions and using PC emotion-laden frivolous terms in response to what they disagree with.
Disagree with a PC persons’ opinions or beliefs and be prepared for having emotion-laden labels placed upon you.
It is these labels that assist me in ascertaining if the writer/speaker is what I consider to be one of a growing number of PC indoctrinated buffoons who tend to be lacking in education or the curiosity to expand their very limited knowledge base.
Babbling buffoons. A bevy of them. Bountiful buffoons. Spewers of inanity. But, that is merely my opinion and I declare that in many of my writings across the Web; something I witness very few PC dingalings doing.
I am going to start a cumulative list and while writing when I think of a new addition I will add it to the list below:
Indicators you are reading/hearing a PC person communicating
- Opinions written as if those opinions are fact
- Label those disagreeing with them a “hater” or “bigot, “xenophobe” “Nazi” etc.
- Tendency to ridicule their own race, culture, ethnicity, whatever but typically only if the PC spewer is a Caucasian USA resident.
I have thought about writing an entry covering this topic but refrained from doing so because the concept I want to convey is difficult.
There are many variables about the topic and my ability to convey thoughts seems inadequate, to me, to share what are in my thoughts.
Here is what sparked my decision to create this entry; a comment left upon a Web site:
“…bombing a lot of poor brown civilians.“
There is that “brown” term again referring to skin pigmentation levels.
I read mention of “brown people” this and that and written by those I label as being PC indoctrinated.
Hey!!! I just found a decent explanation about political correctness with some examples of PC:
“Political Correctness (PC) originally flowered in academia and spread like a virus through the government and corporate worlds. It has devolved into a tyranny of the most offended person in the room. PC complaints now range from the sublime to the ridiculous, and they are stifling the honest assessment, and debate, of issues in our lives.”
The site where the quote above originates and the examples chosen is here:
My tirade is against PC-ridden buffoons spewing their typical knee-jerk rhetoric when leaving comments at Web sites and at message boards. These spewers of political correctness generally write in a manner that does not convey the writer as being a logical, rational creature and obvious-to-me of minimal educational attainment; basically, the average buffoon infesting the human herd who has absorbed much of the life-long propaganda we are all immersed within.
Some of those gulping down that propaganda chose to gobble the PC credos and incorporate that general philosophy into their bleating citizen-sheep lives.
The linked-to site above chose examples of a different type but are indicative of that which is PC.
To be continued
