1. Form of mind and language control devised by moronic left-wingers, achieved through deeming terms such as "fat", "black" and "short" to be taboo based upon ridiculous analogues to racist terminology. Potentially a real-life analogue of George Orwell's Newspeak (due to a mutual use of ideas derived from the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis).

2. Politically correct term for politically justified fascism.

3. State of eternal purgatory that would exist if the entirety of the universe were "politically correct", as nothing could possibly exist (alluded to by Jimbo in South Park, when he explains that the word "nay" could potentially be offensive to horses).
1. Thanks to political correctness, criminal profiling will eventually become a lost art form.

2. 'I considered myself to be a politically justified fascist, but was told that calling myself that could potentially be offensive to others who possessed similar beliefs. So, now, I am a "politically correct individual".'

oversensitivity about words, and confusion over the use of language. being unable to understand the concept of context. bothe liberals and conservatives are just as guilty: liberals come up with retarded, complicated terms for minorities (calling a person African-American who's never been to Africa and doesn't know the culture), while if you mention the downsides and and hypocrisies of a religion or its followers, conservatives will never cease riding your ass. cons also tend to get sore about four letter words (fuck, shit) that only substitute subtler terms.
I am black, and don't see how that term is offensive.

how is a little four letter word like "fuck" going to hurt anyone?

Can be considered pejorative. noun, A term used earliest by American conservatives to neutralize discussions on prejudice in the United States. Used to imply political rights are being taken away from the speaker by the target. Target is implied to be an authoritarian no matter whether or not any actual rights are abridged, thusly most occurrences of the term are used in straw man arguments.
A: You dirty wop.
B: Hey, you're racist!
A: That's political correctness! You're trying to take away my 1st Amendment rights!
B: You're dumb. I'm calling you out, that's all.
A: And thusly, you're more of a racist, than I am!

The dumb theory that colleges teaches you that states that all views (or points of views) are equally valid. Pretty much this means that all standpoints, opinions and such are all valid. Pretty much the views of a racist, a neo-Nazi and the such are all just as valid as someone else. But, it isn't hard to take down these people that expresses this theory by just saying:

"Is it true that there's no such thing as truth?"
Political correctness is a very dumb theory that many colleges teach you in order to dumb you down and lower your IQ.

The Emmanuel Goldstein of the 20th and 21st centuries, political correctness is a multi-headed hydra that is supposedly dedicated to destroying Western civilization and squees everywhere.

Usually, a politically correct person is who dares to point out racism, homophobia or sexism and/or uses inclusive language (i.e. African-American, et al). You may think that the former is admirable and the latter well-intentioned, if a bit silly, but most right-wing pundits don't think so.

That's probably because after the 1960s, right-wingers everywhere decided that the best way to get people on their side was to pretend to be oppressed by PC fascist goons who were in league with the Soviet Union.

The only good kind of politically correct language is the type used by armies and CEOs, such as "collateral damage" instead of "massacred civilians"; "ethnic cleansing" instead of "wanton genocide", "creative accounting" instead of "fraud", and "corporate shrinkage" instead of "firing lots of workers to save money."

You can fight the seven-headed politically correct hydra by speaking without thinking, never learning from your mistakes and refusing to back down or apologize.
Anne is so politically correct! I can't believe she got mad at me for calling her a 'n*gg*r b*tch'!!!1

Political correctness will destroy our nation! Somehow!
