A mental disorder characterized by a fierce self-loathing to the extent that the person wrongly assumes all other cultures and races are superior to his own. Political correctness should be more accurately called political cowardice because people who comply with PC rules ignore facts just to avoid confrontation. Confrontation is what is needed in many cases to facilitate a frank and honest discussion of problems that are facing our nation and society.
Michael Moore is an example of Political Correctness. He's the idiot that wrote a book titled "Stupid White Men" when in fact he is one of the stupidest white men around. He obviously hates himself and has good reason for that. He would do us all a favor by just killing himself instead of criticizing everyone else.
Terms such as Asian-American and African-American are meaningless because Asia and Africa are huge continents containing many countries and people of many races. When black Algerian youths were burning cars in Paris some idiot reported referred to them as African-American. How stupid is that?
See bullshit. Proof that George Orwell was way ahead of his time when he wrote his "1984" novel.

Something that started out as a sort of moral common sense - actually not a bad idea, eg. saying 'black person' instead of 'god-damn cotton-pickin' nigger'.more...
However, the whole thing got utterly out of hand in the early 90s to the point where a lot of people will say 'Afro-Carribean' or 'Afro-American' because they think it's racist to say 'black'! It gets even more ridiculous when you consider that in some parts people think it's offensive to 'blackboard' or 'black coffee'.
What began as a force for good (considering the number of people who really are racist, sexist and homophobic) has since become a laughing stock beacause of the ridiculous extremes to which certain neurotic ultra-liberals took it - cf. a person being 'vertically challenged' rather than short. This has actually undone a lot of progress made in changing bigoted attitudes (as bigot can claim any offence taken at their views is 'political correctness gone mad), whilst making people feel guilty for enjoying anything but the blandest, most anaemic humour for fear of being 'offensive'. I mean, seriously, what's funnier out of 'Friends' and 'South Park'? (Or 'The League of Gentlemen' for the benefit of any Brits out there?)
At the same time as straight white able-bodied men are going out of their way to talk about 'ethnic people' (who ISN'T ethnic!?) and those of 'different sexual orientation', there are blacks calling themselves niggas (which has been going on for years), gays calling themselves (and e...
An inverted facsist philosophy that absolutely no-one should conform to unless they are an ignorant, bleeding-heart liberal idiot.
''Yes i'd like a black coffee, please''.
''Excuse me Sir that is uncalled for. Its 'coffee without milk' ''.
''Just fuck off and bring me my coffee, you fucking liberal!''
The death of comedy.
When all shows are politically correct, show's like South Park will be the first to go

Organized Orwellian intolerance and stupidity, disguised as compassionate liberalism.
Political correctness is most well known as an institutional excuse for the harassment and exclusion of people with differing political views.
Tha übersensitive liberal's favorite tool, which they use on society to corrupt young minds
Political correctness is far more than just silly, constipated speech codes. It is an entire moral outlook and cultural ethos -- namely, that of the political Left.
Basically, a person or thing is considered 'politically correct' when it gives positive strokes to the Left's angelic, messianic self-conception.
Lefties like to demonize anybody who dares to criticize them, but I decline to reciprocate. I don't think they are demons; I think they are all too human. They are "dodging the grim shadow of self-knowledge", fearing the unavoidable Loss of Innocence this would bring, and the frank acknowledgement that they too are part of the human slime-mold --
capable of foul behavior and bad judgement just like everybody else. It's time for them too get off their friggin' pedestal.....
I could go on and on describing what political correctness is, but I'll content myself with the brief observation that what I've written here is 180 degrees opposite to it.
I'm pretty sure that a few politically correct people will read this and think I am talking about somebody else....
