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.

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.

Being a decent human being, and considering what you say to others, not saying derogatory terms and/or phrases.
Jeb: Explain Political Correctness to me.
Me: Think of a racial slur and never say it again.
Jeb: Oh.

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!

Who honestly gives a shit about political correctness anymore? Don't we have bigger fucking problems to deal with?

1. Sometimes it's an excuse for immature, morally depraved, suburbanite dumbshits to get away with obvious hatred and bigotry. They'll cry "PC" as a means of making YOU look stupid for calling them on their bullshit, when you were completely in the right for doing so.

Ironically enough, when you label them with justifiable terms as "racist", "homophobe" or "bigot", they'll cry, bitch and whine that they're not and cover over it by saying that they're not "racist" and that you're just being "oversensitive", which is actually a form of "political correctness"...the very thing that they hate (totally not hypocritical!).

These are the same people who are under the impression that their freedom of speech rights are being legally taken away by Poltical Correctness, when the reality of the situation is that these people were stupid enough to bow out to FUCKING PEER PRESSURE.

You get what you deserve, assholes. Don't whine about "political correctness" impeding on your freedom of speech, whine about your lack of testicles and how you bowed out to societal pressures like little bitches! THAT is what restricted your freedom of speech.

These people claim that those who whine about "political correctness" are crybabies, but these idiots are no better.

2. Other times it's just over-sensitivity to certain things.
Examples from Definition #1-

Dumbshit: Dude, did you see me curbstomp that nigger?
Intelligent Person: You're a racist piece of shit.
Dumbshit: Dude what's with the political correctness? I'm not racist, you're just "oversensitive".
Intelligent Person: No amount of crying "PC" and calling me "oversensitive" won't save you on this one, you're a racist piece of shit. Deal with it.
Dumbshit: *Cuts himself to crappy Emo music*

==============================

Depraved moron: Dude, did you see that gay dude prance around in his pink shirt? He's such a fucking faggot!
Intelligent person: You're a homophobe.
Depraved moron: That's offensive to me!? I'm not a "homophobe" you're just being politically correct!
Intelligent person: ...You worthless hypocrite. *Sprays the douchebag with a flamethrower*

EXAMPLES FROM DEFINITION #2:

Hyper-sensitive person: That person over there has a severe weight deficiency.
Normal Guy: Huh? All I see is some fat dude.
Hyper-sensitive person: Don't say that! It's offensive.
Normal Guy: *Rolls his eyes* You've got to be kidding me.

==============================

Normal person: HEY! Merry Christmas!
Hyper sensitive: I think the term you're looking for is "Happy Holidays".
Normal Person: Whatever...call it what you want, I'm getting presents anyway.
