Due to social emotional weakness, the sender softens the message to the point that it becomes either impotent or a lie for the sake of not offending anyone. Personal feelings become more important than truth and any truth that offends someone becomes evil or hurtful regardless of its intent. Message receivers continually measure every statement with the question, “Was I just a victim?”
The word “ya’ll” is commonly used in some geographic areas of the country, it is not politically correct because some blacks have decided that it is offensive.
It has become impossible to figure out what to call people from Spanish speaking countries. Hispanic or Latino, you are going to offend somebody.
Don’t ever call someone from any country in Asia an Asian. They are very offended by that. You have to call them by what exact country they are from. I guess I am not American. I am United States of American.
Although there are some valid offensive slang words for Illegal immigrants, undocumented immigrant, unauthorized immigrant, unauthorized foreign nationals, paperless nomads, rustic boundless travelers, walking international home and job seekers, WHATEVER! They are here illegally and they are immigrants. Stop getting your feeling hurt.

A form of socially acceptable communication (in America) designed to send impotent messages sacrificing truth for the receiver's personal feelings subsequently hoping the sender's mind was read and the receiver understands the message without feeling attacked, offended, shamed, or embarrassed. Otherwise, if those things are felt by the receiver, the sender may very well have caused the receiver to consider honest self reflection and life changes. Or the receiver may kill the sender or himself.
Politically incorrect: Look, I know you paid your Doctor huge amounts of money to make your face look like Justin Beiber, but the truth is you look absolutely nothing like him and your face looks irreversibly 10 times worse that it originally did.

Politically Correct: Oh wow, you're lookin good! Watch out Justin!

"Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!" - HS Truman

Political correctness, works to anesthetize truth... balanced passion... and needful brashness so that such cannot be offensive to the sensitive challenged, thus words loose their potency in delivery and the sensitive challenged, the opportunity to mature. It is referred to Words and speech that are being used to disguise and not to illuminate. Orwell said, "The greater enemy of clear language is insincerity". Politeness has its place but Political Correct Language is induced to sculpt the thought process for a new societal behavior diabolically being prepared. Political Correctness is aimed at redefining the "offensive" and neutering it of its "offense" with the deceptive impetus of being sensitive to those that might otherwise be offended. Thus "illegal Alien" is now "undocumented Alien": no longer emphasizing the illegality of the Alien's presence but neutering the unlawfulness and crime-worthy status with the new label of being merely "undocumented". Engineered Political Correctness is simply Engineered generational brainwashing.
"Undocumented Alien" is the deceptive, Politically Correct new label of the Illegal Alien.

An accusation typically used by right-wing bigots to describe behavior that shows plain, common decency directed towards individuals or groups against whom, in the past, they have felt free to discriminate without repercussions (i.e. gays; women; racial, ethnic, or religious minorities; etc.) but that has more and more in recent years become the socially accepted norm.
"What? You're mad at me for calling her a fat, n****r, dyke, c*nt? Hey, sorry if you were offended! I forgot we all have to be 'politically correct' now!"

1. The term for any word or phrase that doesn't offend a group of people.
2. A phrase that both liberals, and conservatives, use to bash each other with, as evidenced repeatedly on this page.
3. The one thing most people on this page have no intention of trying to be.
Conservative: Merry Christmas! Oh! I'm sorry, is that politically correct these days?

Liberal: It is not politically correct, bigot.

Example two:
Conservative: Illegal Aliens are wetbacks.
Liberal: "Wetback" is not a politically correct term.

In all actuality, being politically correct means trying to be aware of things that can be offensive, degrading, or improper to say to other people. We try to be better people, and make others comfortable around us, as befits decent manners. Intentionally being politically INCORRECT, OR bashing others for mistakenly, or erroneously, being politically incorrect, is NOT politically correct. Grab a book of etiquette, and check it out.
