During the next few days I am going to be posting about Political Correctness in America. (Yes, I said America–NOT North America).
It is my belief that Political Correctness is destroying free speech. PC is nothing more than linguistic fascism. When you ban words you ban thought and ultimately free expression.
Some Politically Correct expressions are so ludicrous, it is difficult to believe that the PC Gestapo can keep a straight face when they substitute them for words we have been using for centuries.
Example: Schools using “chalkboard” instead of “blackboard” to avoid claims of discrimination. Or “manhole covers” now called “personal access units” in some cities to avoid upsetting women.
These are some of the topics I will address in my upcoming posts.
So stay tuned!
