Go to Wikipedia and you will see that they changed the name of that war after 110 years to the liberal politicaly correct name.

    Just last year the Obama administration decided that the old phrase "Hold down the fort" was racist and the term "Rule of thumb" was a derogatory term. Come on, what's with the Democrat Party ???
    Does political correctness violate free speech ? Yes it does.

    Since liberals and the Democrat Party are responsible for all of this political correctness, they are the ones who violate America's free speech.
    Hoowee ... don't get me started with "call a spade a spade" these days.

    Good evening, Bonz.

    Political correctness is a misnomer foisted upon the populace by a group that has decided that only they know what is proper and what is not. :

    Good manners and respect for others should be taught in the home, and the proper punishment given for failure, IMO. When did government decide that this was their role? :

    What people have pejoratively labeled political correctness transcends governmental action. It's seen as a de facto existence rather than de jure, although this does not prevent the former from being reinforced by the latter. This is hardly unique, considering the society in which we live is operated by a number of social and language customs and systems which operate in much the same way.

    My only issue is that there are plenty of parents who fail to teach these responsibilities, but they'll complain if the school punishes them for misbehavior. My wife was teaching at a high school where she had to quit because of the disobedience. The worst part was that she was told she could only give one referral per day. All that did was send the message to the kids that they could have fun testing how far they could push her. By the second day of lecture, my wife was pushed by a female student who thought she could insist that the classroom door be left open during lecture. I blame their parents, first and foremost. However, when parents fail we can't simply tolerate it. If they can't act properly in the classroom and disrupt the education of others then I say they need to be sent to boot camp.
