Usually I like to try and address some of the pending and current disasters besetting our Dying Republic, but at this point I don’t know whether to keep fighting the decay or just hope for a quick death. If you’re wondering why I feel this way, don’t worry….I’m going to tell you.
See, none of the issues we need to confront and deal with will ever be handled. Not as long as this once great beacon of real freedom is under the spell of that cheap magician named Political Correctness. I bet you didn’t know PC the Magnificent could do tricks, but let me assure you that he does. I’ll give you a couple of examples:
A young, Kuwaiti-born muslim man takes a trip to the middle east, becomes “more devout”, grows a beard, and then decides to shoot several American servicemen to death. You might think at first this was an act of ISIS inspired terrorism…….but Presto-Chango! it’s just another “lone gunmen” depressed and unhappy with life and taking it out on oddly gun-less members of the military….who must’ve been random, unfortunate targets.
An ego-centric man stands before you: A definite Y chromosome, broad shouldered, adam’s apple having, can do 20 pull ups Man. You know, like won-some-gold-medals-in-the-Men’s-category man. But watch as PC the Magnificent removes the curtain and Abra-cadabra! it’s a girl everybody!
An Illegal alien stands before you: by the very nature of their presence in the country, they are a criminal. In fact, by being illegal and using social services they are committing theft and fraud. Sometimes one even shoots and kills an American Citizen for fun. In steps PC the Amazing….. and Poof! that illegal is now honest, hardworking, moral and true…. all the things that you are not.
An inner city lays before you, let’s say Chicago. In this place dozens of people are victims of violent crime every month at the hands of people who share their culture, community, and pigmentation. In steps PC the Miraculous, and with the wave of a magic wand, it’s all the fault of people with different pigmentation that at best have an unconscious bias and at worst are guilty of blatant racism.
Or maybe there’s a country full of radical religionists, complicit in the murder of American soldiers, bent on ruling the world and stomping on you with an Allah-given fervor, using a nuclear jackboot that we are providing. But wait…….PC the Wondrous folds his arms and blinks and Shazam!, now that nation is a peaceful beacon of light and enlightenment desperately trying to crawl out from under our evil influence.
Now maybe you can understand why my attitude is a little sour on our collective ability to face any of the huge problems we’re staring at. And hey……I know many people now either think with their feelings, genitals, or both….rendering them incapable of critical thought and reasoning. They are the ones that will shout you down when you expose the trick, insisting the girl really was sawed in half and the Statue of Liberty really did disappear.
I still think that most people, like the audience in a magic show, know what is truth and what is not. Out of fear they stay silent. The real problem is that as a culture we have become enablers of crazy. Used to be when your weird Uncle stood up at the dinner table, pissed himself, and claimed to be Napoleon Bonaparte – you called the guys in white coats with butterfly nets. I guess in Bizzaro-America now you applaud their courage, learn French, put them in a diaper and buy them a funny hat.
Welcome to the saddest show on Earth, it’s mandatory…….so shut up and accept the ridiculous.
” Nobody ever lost a dollar by underestimating the taste of the American Public….”
“There’s a sucker born every minute……”
I don’t suppose you meant to write this too seriously but I wanted to point out that most of these examples are not actually PC the Wondrous; they are his cousin, Leftist Spin. PC is something more personal and insidious. PC is the reason you feel awkward saying “Indian” instead of “Native American” or “Indigenous Person”, and the one who expects you to say “she” if the person claims to be female, and thinks that “asking pronouns” is the new normal and you are unreasonable if you won’t play along (I admit this wasn’t “normal” in 2014 when this was written, not yet). Leftist Spin uses a great deal of PC the Wondrous in his demonstrations, but they aren’t the same thing. Leftist Spin turns incidents and characters into other incidents and characters more favorable to the leftist narrative, while PC just dictates how you may and may not speak in public and private.
