A pejorative term, and straw man for a political movement fabricated by United States conservatives in about 1980 to discredit the liberal cause, and its ideas.
Whether it be any poorly handled incident where a home office minister gets ticked off for using 'nitty-gritty' in a speech, school children brought before judges for playground racial taunts, to reports of doctors reprimanded for not giving men cervical smears, they all propel an instruction of disapproval about 'politically correct madness' and for one purpose: to mock the entire liberal cause in the process. Plain-talking conservatives who yearn for 'common sense and clear thinking debate' would never fall to such liberal follies.

Thus, any environmental campaign, any discussion about global warming, any case of sexual harassment, or any response to racial prejudice, can be portrayed as the irrational exponents of 'political correctness'.

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.
Saying 3rd world country isn't politically correct anymore? WTF!?!? I'll call them "developing" when they actually start DEVELOPING.

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!

How people speak to avoid offending people while making themselves look like idiots
Politically correct = vertically challenged
Normal = short

A phrase that liberals use to try and end prejudice. Will never succeed since all human beings have a dislike for someone or something. Sorry P.C. pussies, you can't change free will. Also see hypocrisy.
Al Gore wants you to be politically correct and treat the handicapped, minorities, and fags like they're special, after all, he wants us all to be equal-oh nevermind.
A tactic created by the Communist regime to create unnecessary nicknames, amplify prejudice, and use stupid euphemisms to reverse discrimination, and break down Western Civilization.
Broke-backs, horizontally challenged, and especially African Americans lend me your auditory apparatuses;

Equally I come not to honor all , but to amplify the problem .
The imbalanced treatment that men do lived before them
Inequality rose from the grave
So let it be with prejudice as well. The noble left
Hath told you politically correctness is thy blessing

If it is so, Tis a joyous occasion.
And joyously hath we delighted in it.
Here under direction of communist and liberals
(For both implementers are honorable parties,
And thus politically correctness is not a gay philosophy)

Come I to speak at this politically correct classroom,
Not to teach diversity, but to reverse discrimination
But liberals say this is “in”.
And liberals are all honorable men,
They provide nice euphemisms to the marginal.

Who have a heard about dealing with context
It is not context but the idiotic newspeak language that is important.
When the poor hath cried, involuntarily leisured they were titled.
Hath thou a better meaning of inverted fascist philosophy?
Yet thou doubt the left agenda.

And thee is an honorable party
Using Communism and cultural Marxism
Changing your speech and thought process
As not to discriminate against minority. Is this factual incorrectness not fair?
Yet you doubt the left agenda?

And sure they are all honorable men
I speak not to vocalize my beliefs
Thou must be avoided as to not disrespect others
I must make up for the past iniquities and injustices I did not commit.
What cause withholds you then to rejoice in this wonderful idea?

Oh politeness, thou art is not needed
And men have denoted their religion with me:
My heart is with the liberals who have a hard time dealing with reality.
And I must pause and rejoice in it as to not offend anyone.

The biggest fucking pile of bullshit ever.

It's the way for all the people who feel slightly "oppressed" to get back at the normal people.

It is NOT politically correct to:
- Refer to a black person as black
- Swear on TV
- Celebrate Christmas in a Christian country, since it offends the Muslims who immigrated, probably illegally, over here, even though they get to fucking celebrate their version of Christmas, and wear those turbans and shit anywhere they want
Guy: See that black guy?
Girl: Yeah, the only black guy there, so it's logical to describe him as the black guy?
Guy: Yeah, he's called Brendan and he's cool.

Euphemism - an insidious guilt-trip placed on everyone so that reasonable people are afraid to say what everybody thinks.

Due to our society's delusional concept "Political Correctness" people are afraid to say completely reasonable things for fear of eliciting anyone's knee-jerk persecution. As a consequence we live in a social climate of mental stupor, hypocrisy and complete verbal confusion which even allows the unjust persecution of reasonable people by those of quite low moral or intellectual character.

Basically with PC we've been mind-fucked out of our individual power and freedom due to our society's excessively rigid and poorly-conceived attempt to protect individuals.
Dr. Brent always believed drug addicts were unreliable, but he couldn't fire the recovering cocaine user from his surgical team until he had a politically correct reason to do so.
