    There is no such word as “theirselves” (and you certainly can’t spell it “theirselfs” or “thierselves”); it’s “themselves.”

    Takes one to know one I guess.

    Is "the left" some monolithic organization that we can quote directly? If not, the purpose of your question escapes me. If so, please provide a link or otherwise establish who you expect to be quoted.
    The purpose of the question was to place such an unreasonable standard of proof as to make it pretty much unanswerable, thus giving the illusion that the answer would be 'X' without then being forced to defend the 'X' answer.

    Or the purpose of the question was to show how stupid the OP was. If "the left" beleives something, then he should have been able to show that a significant portion at least of those who make up the left believes that. Nice try though.

    Of course political correctness exists. Anyone that thinks it doesn't is either an idiot or has been living in a rock for the past 20-30 years.

    Yes, it exists. Not as an official policy, but as a pervasive discomfort with stating views on highly political subjects in an honest manner, for fear of being thought negatively of.

    People have trouble defining it, I think that's the real problem.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    When I am asked to perform what used to be called Holiday or Christmas season music at elementary schools. I submit a play list and it is highly scrutinized is very subjective. The children clamor for "Christmas Music". The parents are the people who are offended, who are not even present. For example, "Rocking Around the Christmas Tree", "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Santa Baby" were objected to. I stood my ground on all and told them it is either "Santa baby" or "Satan baby". At the price I give (which is nothing)they capitulate.

    Kinda like you making up the word "theirselves"?

    Re: Does Political Correctness exist?

    PC is nothing more than kowtowing to socially lazy and small minded people who wish to exert some control over the behavior of group, organization or society. Before their was PC their was a decency in society as a whole where self discipline was the vanguard of what was acceptable behavior. The concept of PC weakens the fabric of a society that speaks to the individual a self sufficient member of society and makes that individual dependent on what to think and say pursuant to the watch word of the week. Very disempowering, emasculating and demeaning it is a blight on soul of cultural values and thwarts the "melting pot" ideals that have made countries like the US a multicultural haven.
