    Or maybe the aforementioned statement is wrong, against that the Political Correctness is the biggest combatant against Terrorism, please vote and describe your opinion.
    I suppose that in the context of your question, PC vs. TSA sort of thing; that terrorism is more dangerous. It's used as propaganda tools to excuse government growth and expansion of power; and that is pretty damned dangerous. In the more generalized context, is PC behavior more dangerous than the threat of terrorism, I'd probably say PC is more dangerous. This is based on terrorism itself not being a huge impact on our daily lives. It's not really that dangerous because in reality it's a low probability even which will work itself out every once in awhile. It's far less dangerous than say cars. PC behavior, however, can also (in general) have the effect of excusing gross expansions of government power against the rights and liberties of the individual.

    If you ask me, the greatest threat to our rights and liberties is the government itself. Not some outside insane group of people who blow themselves up. They can never change our laws, our Constitution, or the dynamics of our government.

    I chose PC because the enemy within is far more dangerous than enemies on the outside and besides, terrorists are learning to use our PC tendencies against us.

    Re: What is more dangerously:Political Correctness or Terrorism?

    Depends on how you define, "dangerously". Terrorists are certainly a larger threat when it comes to human lives, but political correctness is the larger threat when it comes to civil rights and personal liberties.

    They are equally dangerous, IMO.

    I think 'political correctness' as a term only refers to remarks on the public record.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

It was politically correct to punish girls and women who spoke out of place. As I stated there are many versions and ways to be "politically correct". In Germany for example during the Nazi's it was "politically correct" to turn in Jews. In the south of the US, it was "politically correct" to be as offensive to black people as possible and so on and so on. Politically correct does not have to be moderation of behaviour in a "good way".. can also be of a bad way... it is all in the eye of the beholder.
    This proves that you don't know what it means. And congrats on brining Nazi's into the thread.

    Texas A&M had a contest for the best definition of a contemporary expression. The winner was political correctness.

    "Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

    I can't help but laugh at this kind of crap.

    "The terrorists will consider this mosque as a victory mosque"

    "The terrorists are trying to scare us into giving up our rights"

    "The terrorists are using the wikileaks leaks to recruit people" (as if they didn't already have enough recruiting tools)

    "The terrorists are having anchor babies in the U.S. so they can attack us 20 years later"

    "The terrorists are laughing their asses off over the TSA issues in the U.S."

    "The terrorists are jealous of our freedoms, and that's why they attacked the U.S."

    "The terrorists are just pissed off that they have to live in sh*tholes"


    I'm tempted to report the people making these claims to the CIA. They must be in with the terrorists to know what the terrorists are thinking and doing.......

    Political correctness is about fear.

    However, I know your point.
