Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen a definite rise in political correctness. Not only are they now trying to control our speech with it, but the left is using this insidious method to literally control society.
There is no question that political correctness reached a new high in 2015, even going so far as to ban the Confederate battle flag and remove historic monuments from many southern states.
The whole concept of political correctness is insidious. It’s one of the left’s many tools that they use to control the right, trying to force us to conform to their will. In that, it’s no different than Muslims trying to force others to live under Sharia Law or Communists forcing people to bow to the state. It’s all about control and using fear to control people.
We have to understand that fear is the mechanism that is used to implement political correctness. We who are controlled by it are afraid of being labeled racist, sexist or any other “ist” that the left comes up with. It’s as if those words were true badges of dishonor and that we would be permanently branded with them, much like the woman in “The Scarlet Letter.”
