If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
PC teaches people how to feel offended by minor air vibrations.
Nancy Pelosi said: “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.” A Doctor called to a radio show & said: "That's the definition of a stool sample"
"Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket," Barack Obama January 2008
"Can't call a gay marriage a marriage, gotta call it a civil union or else it'll offend all the REAL hetero marriages out there!"
"Can't criticize aspects of my religion or my country, cause if you say anything bad about Jesus or Murica you're an unpatriotic commie atheist hater! And if you don't like it then leave! WAAAH!"
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody 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.
I think being pc is starting to become something other than that. Its a term used as a weapon when someone speaks freely what they really think and feel and if it does not mesh with what the majority thinks and feels....the labels come out that you are this or that. Being pc is fine if it means trying to "polite" in expressing oneself without being offensive. It's when being pc turns into one big fat lie that causes the problem. Fear to express. Hesitation to say what one truly feels.
Sure it exists, but is that always a bad thing?
You can speak your mind without being wildly politically incorrect IMHO.

And to expand on that a little. What does a kid in a wheelchair have to do with:
a - entitled people who think that the world owes them anything and,
b - people who think that they have an inalienable right to not be insulted?
I usually tell fat heads who are full themselves to move because their over inflated egos block my view.

Quo usque tandem abutere, Trump, patientia nostra?
Any good thing can be misused.
