A phrase taken from Mao's Little Red Book to describe terminology that is considered politically expedient.

Understood from a Western perspective as having the same connotation as the term Double Speak in George Orwell's novel 1984, which was written as a criticism of Communism at a time when Western powers were still allied with the USSR.

This western application of the term is often misused by uneducated morons in America to justify their refusal (or inability) to learn basic concepts, correct terminology, accepted behavior or even rudimentary spelling and grammar.
"I'd like a cheeseburger with a side of politically correct Freedom fries".

Made to not offend people, but actually creates a greater gaps between people of different races, religions, etc. It's actually worse than being racist, because it's the context of what your saying, not what you actually are saying, that matters.
Being politically correct was probably thought up by the KKK.

A bunch of bullshit. If you use the term African American your racist. a black person who is born in the U.S. is a black person. not an african american. it would be like calling every white person an european american. most ppl who try to be politically correct try to hard and just seem to be more racist than if they would have just said a black person or a mexican. bullshit
if you are being politically correct you need to stop

something that the socialist bacterium consistantly aim to be in a debate to try and cover up the fact that they simply have no valid points.

politically correct people are usually self-righteous suck-ups who have nothing else better to do than make sure everybody knows how 'caring' and 'thoughtful' they are by trying to be overly polite when it is simply unnecessary.

Something that is supposed to limit insult, but has become extremely over-emphasized by the left-wing half of the world to the point where it looses it's purpose.

There is no background... It would just come out as several jumbled euphemisms. This is a term used to take a way from perfectly acceptable terms like "Indians", which is in no way racist, unless preceded by "fuck the."
The politically correct commandos managed to put up a gigantic menorah even though there were only 2 Jewish people out of 240 000 in the whole fucking town. TWO!
