    Nobody LIKES criticism, but I don't hate it. And everybody should expect to live with the consequences of the choices they make. But also, everybody should still have the unalienable right to be who and what they are that violates nobody else's rights and they should be able to be that without fear that some mob will descend upon them to punish them for their political incorrectness.

    I say this for the benefit of those capable of being educated or persuaded on this subject and not for one who responded to my most with absurd non sequitur and ad hominem.

    Therein lies your distaste for education. I like criticism. PC is criticism. It's not physical beatings. Put your strawman aside and accept that words and actions have consequences.

    I'd still like to know what people who rail against political correctness want to say, exactly.

    I don't agree with your definition of RINO. To me, and I believe what most people mean when they use the term, is to identify those who supports concepts in opposition to the Republican platform or consensus or who hold views in opposition to the Republican platform or consensus. It is intended as a critical or insulting term and is NOT intended to silence dissent within the party.

    It is no different than calling somebody a liberal or conservative or partisan or ideologue--all also often used to be critical or insulting, but are not intended to silence dissent.

    It certainly is NOT political correctness that would physically and/or materially try to hurt somebody because of their observations about something or the opinions or point of view that they hold.

    Could somebody else who understands anything ecofarm is saying please take over with him for me? I only have time for discussions with those who are having a conservation about the same thing I am discussing.

    When some GOP makes a rape, or gay, racial observation, the GOP big whigs are there jumping on him as well.

    I think that there's things that are politically correct on the right also. For example, you wouldn't stand in front of the Tea Party and say "I favor raising taxes." It's not "politically correct." Gay marriage isn't "politically correct" to the Religious Right, so you wouldn't dare talk to them about being in favor of it.

    By limiting your version of "PC" to only the left is a very narrow definition. Besides which, what's PC changes over time. In 1914, it was completely acceptable to say that black people were genetically inferior. You wouldn't get away with that in any circles, left or right, in 2014.

    I don't get it either. If you want to run around saying "n*gger" and "f*ggot" you can. People might not like you, but you can. For all we hear about "the right isn't racist," you'd think that racially insulting language would be equally offensive to them. I don't think that the GOP is racist, but why are the RWers so concerned about "PC?" They have their own things that aren't acceptable to them.

    It must be horrible to have no understanding of what PC is at all. Good luck.
