Signs That America Has Become A Politically-Correct Madhouse

Signs That America Has Become A Politically-Correct Madhouse, by Michael Snyder.

We are rapidly getting to the point where political correctness is in danger of becoming our national religion.  Of course most people would not even call it a “religion”, but for most Americans this unwritten set of rules shapes everything that they think, do and say.

Many had been hoping that the spell of political correctness would be broken by the election of Donald Trump, but that obviously has not happened.  The forces of political correctness still have a stranglehold on our education system, on all forms of entertainment, on our legal system, and on most of the politicians in both political parties. …

If you do or say the wrong thing at the wrong time, you could lose your friends, you could lose your job, and you could potentially even lose your reputation. … There have been numerous people over the past year that have been publicly crucified in the court of public opinion for doing or saying something that was not politically-correct.

And with each passing day, the forces of political correctness take a little bit more ground. …

Some recent advances in PC:

According to Time Magazine, a book entitled “Santa’s Husband” will be released on October 10th by a major U.S. publisher that depicts Santa as “a gay man in an interracial relationship”. …

According to Michael Moore, historians will mark “March 28, 2017, as the day the extinction of human life on earth began” because Donald Trump has rolled back Obama’s climate change regulations. …

An elementary school in California has banned the game of “tag” because it is too dangerous. …

At one high school in Iowa, students were recently denounced as “racists” for dressing up in red, white and blue for a basketball game. …

In North Carolina, … the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System used the “gender unicorn” to teach students — as young as first grade — all about sexual orientation and gender identity. This cute, little, fury animal was used to promote the idea that sexual orientation asks the question, “Who do you go to bed with?” while gender identity asks the question, “Who do you go to bed as?” And these can be fluid, of course. Kids can change whenever and however they want. …

Bathroom scales have been taken out of the gym at one college campus for a very strange reason: “Administrators at Carleton University have removed the bathroom scales from the campus gym, claiming that ‘being fixated on weight’ does not ‘have any positive affect [sic] on your health.’” …

Opposing PC can seem like a lonely task at times:

In this type of environment, people like me are becoming dinosaurs.  …

Ultimately, political correctness is a tool that progressives use to silence the opposition. They want to make it a crime to think or say anything that they might find offensive, and to a substantial degree it is working.

Our founders intended for us to permanently have a right to free speech, but now we have moved into a time when saying the wrong thing can get you brutally persecuted.
