The new racism that was invented by leftists.
Political correctness is really nothing more than a new way to promote prejudice

Distortion of the truth. Since so many people do not believe in the existence of truth, many fail to understand PC and become manipulated by activists who impose PC on others.
We can't say that a man and woman married to each other are husband and wife. We now have to call them "partners". This is Political Correctness.

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".'

3.

A term used to hide the true meaning of a word or term, so that certain people, such as criminals and terrorists, will not get offended.

This is used mainly by politicians on the left side of the political spectrum, i.e. Democrats in the United States.
"Democrats love political correctness!"

Known as the religion of fuckheads.
What a fuckhead, he thinks that political correctness is the key to being an intellectual.

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?

Secular version of religious prudery.
Puritanism - Don't say that Beyonce looks hot, that's committing the sin of lust.

Political correctness - Don't say Beyonce looks hot, that's patriarchal objectification of women.

the flawed notion that it is more important to tolerate everyone's opinions and beliefs, particularly ones related to a liberal philosophy, so as not to offend anyone rather than exposing the ignorance or irrationality from which said opinions and beliefs originate.
Comedians today are too frequently disparaged in the mainstream media for not sticking within the confines of political correctness.
