When one person comes up with a hip or politically correct sounding statement, and others who hear them start changing their thought process and then repeating the statement for the rest of their lives.
Person 1 " I don't celebrate thanksgiving because it's just a reminder of how we slaughtered the native americans.
Person 2 (Hears the statement and then in an effort to seem more politically correct than others, does the same. When in actuality, Person 2 would have loved celebrating it.)
