"I think that if we all dropped the terms 'politically correct' and 'revisionist history' and any number of other buzz phrases, that better dialogue would naturally result."Since both of those subjects are regular targets of criticism here at the OVB, I thought I'd jump in with a comment; to wit: Sure, I'd be glad to drop those terms - as soon as political correctness dies a worthy death and "revisionist history" ceases. But I don't look for that to happen any time soon. Of course, that means others would have to stop using "buzz phrases" like "neo-Confederate" and "holocaust denier" (the latter just because someone disagrees with their interpretation of history regarding the War Between the States); hardly conducive for "better dialogue."
Actually, labels and so-called "buzz phrases" are often quite useful, when you can back them up with facts.
