Something that, through social activity, proves that the United States citizens are slowly losing their freedoms. It is also a joke to try to use weasel words so to make sure nobody gets offended when, in the end, everything still is the same. Political correctness is also targeted only selected groups, which shows it's just another political play with racism and hatred.
Political Correctness in action...
Normal person: "That new movie 1408 looks good, plus it has good actors in it, too. I think that Samuel L. Jackson is one of the best black actors in Hollywood."
Politically correct person: "What?! How dare you use the B-word?! He's not the bad B-word, he's African American."
Normal person: "Um...o...k. Anyway, I also like John Cusack. He's one of my favorite white actors in Hollywood."
Poltically correct person: "Yeah, he's a pretty good actor."

Political Correctness - The ideal that forces people, through peer-pressure, to use certain words or act in a certain way as to not cause offence to anyone.

Taking the idea of equality to the extreme.

Often championed by the BBC, who not only use politically correct terms, but often use the "token black man/token female" in many programmes and features.

A tool frequently used by New Labour.

The eradicator of free-speech.

The root of everything that is wrong with society today.
A shot-arse is not "physically challenged", he/she is a short arse.
A dumbass is not "mentally challenged", he/she is a dumbass.
A binman is not a "refuse collector", he/she is a binman.
A postman is not a "letter carrier", he/she is a postman.
The loser in a boxing match did not "finish second place", he/she lost!

Political Correctness is a plague on modern society.

I won't mention the examples that people gave. Basically, it's something that PC came up with to make people feel...less paranoid about their surroundings. However, even if you use the "right" terms, people will still get mad at you.
Me: Hey, you know that James kid? I heard that he's gay.
Friend: Hey, he's not gay. He's different.
Me: Oh, yeah, that's nice. Good job, dumbass...hey, look at that fat kid.
Friend: He's not fat, he's horizontally challenged.
Me: Dude, shut up. It's not gonna make him feel any better by calling him that. If you're that stupid to use "political correctness," then I'm sorry, but you need to go kill yourself.

A stupid, wannabe-proper way of life that has just about ruined this country. It puts a stain on the good liberal name. PC people just do not understand the true ethical way of life. They just cower at home and tell younger people not to do things and try to completely brainwash them with a bunch of crappy bullshit about weed and other drugs, plus alcohol. PC people take part in so many protests and rallies that you just want to get a rifle and shoot their asses.
Political correctness includes:

1. Euphemistic language

2. Whining your ass off about a tiny issue like a sports' teams mascot.

3. Any group of people who whine about everything.

Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a
delusional, illogical, Marxist (Politically Correctly called liberal) 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 Politically Correct term for Politically Correct is sensitive.

Facts are Politically Incorrect, that is why we need Postmodern "thinking", that is lying elevated into a form of art.

Political Correctness has successfully outsourced censorship to private enterprises.
