Blatant hypocrisy; promotion of language that conceals personal differences, promotion of the idea that identifying a person or group is distinctly different from the average population is the same as saying their is something insurmountably wrong with them. Promotion of the idea that bad historical events would reflect upon descendants who never knew the ancestors involved - therefore the events never happened or are offensive reminders of a personal defect; promotion of the idea that average is sacred and all people should be considered equal in ability or personal characteristics...unless they are overweight, rich, or in some other way not complying with political programs promoting standards of achievable attractiveness or equal division of wealth.
Its not politically correct to use the word word "crippled" because it identifies someone as possibly being different in ability or method of performing a skill or physical action -- despite the fact that not being crippled would not grant you specific skills or ability and that some 'cripples' make adaptation to certain skills and others do not.
Its not politically correct to mention slavery because the existence of such history is not just historical circumstances involving ancestors no modern person met -- under PC philosophy reminder of such history is a violent personal confrontation about implied inherent shortcomings in descendants of slavery and people of the same color or nationality as past slavery owners have lost all right to discuss the issue due to their inherited guilt ...even though they may not even have had ancestors holding pro-slavery opinions let alone had direct ancestral indoctrination.
Its not politically correct to say a crowd of Jews asked the Romans to crucify Jesus for false claims of being the Messiah -- because if true somehow all modern Jews are guilty of the "crimes" of theirs ancestors (really weird when there is only a 0.0001% chance their ancestors might have even been there). Opinions and self-interests of Jews are not allowed to change over 2000 tears - therefore based on a survey of modern Jews this could never have happened.
