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

Groupthink. For those who don't want to think. They simply believe what they are told.
Political correctness is when the loudest mouth around the conference table gets to set the agenda, because everyone else doesn't think, or speak up to say what they think.
Neocons dominate the president because he doesn't think things through for himself. He talks of having "a bunch of smart people around me." PR and spin seem to dominate politicians, not any thoughtful process.

is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
The member of House of Representatives chose political correctness over common sense when they voted "yes" on the Presidentially backed: tree hugging, world saving, business loathing, personal pocket lining, Tax-payer money Draining Act...

a platonic ideal, an abstraction, a form, an eternal immaterial underlying reality. Political correctness is an ideal whose standards are so unrealistic that no one has ever met them and all instances we encounter in this material world of it are but deformed and imperfect copies of that ideal. No novel is politically correct. No play is politically correct. No poem. No film. No song. No speech. No president. No talk show, organization or law is perfectly politically correct. And yet we are still punished for failing to meet its ungodly demands.
Shakespeare, Milton, Plato, Kant, D.H. Lawrence and Homer are but a few names in the hall of shame of political incorrectness. So what chance does an average Joe have of ever demonstrating pure political correctness?

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.

Intellectual colonialism and psychological fascism for the creation of thought crime.
Thanks to Political Correctness it's now 'wrong' for me to think certain thoughts, and that isn't right.
