“Congress shall make no law respecting establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or prohibiting the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” US Constitution
In the present climate of “hate speech” and “politically incorrect” ideas and statements I wonder if all these new terms are not just attempts to stifle debate and silence critics? After all, who exactly defines what is politically correct and what is hate speech? What is hate speech anyway? Much of these terms seem to border on insanity when observed by a rational mind. Political Correctness manifests itself in our society in three ways.
- Political correctness is a set of attitudes & beliefs divorced from mainstream values.
- The politically correct person has a prescriptive view on how people should think & what they are permitted to discuss.
- Political correctness is embedded in public institutions, which have a legislative base, & which have coercive powers.
The third manifestation is what makes political correctness so powerful. If they didn’t have coercive powers it would just be another view discussed in classrooms etc. It is interesting to note that politically correct politicians have ceased to represent the interests of the majority. Rather, they are fixated on the cares & concerns of minority groups. It is interesting to watch the liberal media, and the liberal politicians as they labor to establish anything contrary to their views as politically incorrect. This is not surprising, since political correctness was birthed in Marxism at the Institute for Social Research (originally known as the Institute for Marxism) in 1923 Germany. Thus, it is not surprising that Liberals and their ilk are the ones espousing “Political Correctness” so vehemently. To disagree with them is to be hateful, intolerant (abandon all your opinions?), racist etc. It flows so naturally with Marxist ideology, since in Communism (and Islam) the individual is abandoned for the collective.
The course of battle against this intellectual parasite is to demand Free Speech be regarded as more important than Political Correctness and the restrictions it wishes to impose on our freedom. Further, Political Correctness is the enemy of Free Speech and only one can prevail. These disgusting Marxist codes must be cast out and we must all embrace our ancestral liberties and rights! If we don’t, we will be helpless to battle the forces that wish to enslave us and steal our freedom.
