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'.

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.
victim: 'WHAT THE FUCK this black man just stole my car!'

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!

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.
