The PC Police Are Taking Some Hits

Update: A new poll shows just how out of touch many of the PC crowd in academia are. It also shows how the deniers are making fools of themselves.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 71% of American Adults think political correctness is a problem in America today, while only 18% disagree. Ten percent (10%) are undecided. (Source.)
I suppose the deniers are part of a new "Lost Cause Myth." When will they face reality?

End of update.

There are a couple of Civil War bloggers who have, time and time again, scoffed at the notion of political correctness. I believe they've done so because they are up to their necks in it and are either:

a. Complicit

b. Afraid of the consequences of being critical

But the absolute absurdity of the PC police is becoming more and more evident with each passing day. An increasing number of comedians are making fun of PC's implications which, in a broader cultural sense, signals the fact that average Americans outside of the PC tribunal of academia, the media and government have little regard for the stupidity of the control freak bubble dwellers.

If you go on the Library of Congress website, and go the archived newspapers titled Chronicling America, then you can find some really good articles from 1866 about political correctness.

If you search for "rebel" and "radical" then this will get you started. These searches will allow you to branch out to other search terms, which will remain unnamed because of political correctness.

People can't write now, as good as they did back in those days, I guess because of political correctness. Today's blogs are really pretty boring.

Stupidity is contagious and Monkey see, Monkey do is recognized as the most powerful predictor of human behavior yet uncovered.

Peter Hassan (8-29-15) writing for Campus Reform reports:

"Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” "male," and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students..."

I saw that. But, according to some CW bloggers with very close ties to academia, PC is just the boogie-man of the right. How these people have any credibility left is beyond me.

There are none so blind as those who refuse to see. And, yes, Montag, college professors did once teach students to think for themselves instead of telling them what to think on pain of sanction.
