A bloated, circumlocutory and wholly American attempt at relieving the white man's burden; a struggle to find polite terminology for whichever group feels slighted that day and needs a hug. Tricks the unwitting into referring to Somalian nationals as "African-Americans."
How can you call them "black people"? That's not politically correct!

Method by which to negate all debate and set up a dictatorship.
-While doing this they simultaneously tried to take away your 2nd amendment rights while letting criminal mafia types and gangs have them.And they did all of this while flooding your country with illegal aliens so as to firmly undermine your country's sovereignty.They made ethnic minorities killing eachother into a fad (see racist).
Liberals disguise their racism as loving tolerance and desire for equality by using political correctness to deceive us and brainwash us.Democrats and Republicans both suck and they both just lie to us and brainwash us in order to get us to go along with their plan for a new world order.Their racism should sound and alarm.

A phenomena perpetuated by politicians, mainly liberals, with the purpose of eliminating stereotypes. This stems from the fact that words now become occasionally associated with negative images. For example: Mexican denotes an illegal immigrant who works for below-minimum wage and doesn't speak English; Black means that a person is on welfare and is a gang member; White conjures the image of someone who is rich, uppity, fake, and wimpy; Southern describes a person as a stupid racist redneck; and Crippled is associated with someone who is old and cannot contribute to society. Ultimately it is a well-intentioned, but nonetheless bad, idea. It is a bad idea because if we start referring to people as "Caucasian" or "African American" then those words will begin to be associated with the same images that "White" and "Black" were. Another reason it will not work is because it tries to change people's thought processes and people generally don't like it when their heads are messed with. It treats people like they are children who don't understand. The third reason it is a terrible idea which will fail is because it is nonsensical: I know several black people who were born in Africa and should be called African Americans. But if a black person is born in England and moves to America would they be called African Americans? Or what about a white person born in Africa? Black Americans or simply Black should be what they are called. In short, Poltical Correctness is an unintelligent idea taken too far.
Boss utilizing Political Correctness: "Hello its nice to meet you Mr. Clancy. It's good to have an African-American on the team here at our store."
Mr. Clancy: "Sir I was born and raised in England, I'm not African and I'm not American you can just call me black."

10 Years into the future: "Okay class now lets read about the United Statesian Revolution and how the Amer- I mean United Statesians defeated the British."

using euphemistic language, often extending a word or phrase by multiple syllables, in order to rid the word or phrase of its emotional connotation esp. when applied towards words or phrases that are discriminatory in nature.
"Political correctness has resulted in not referring to individuals as cripples anymore. They are now called physically challenged."

The elimination of common sense to please everyone so no one, especially a minority, is offended. Institutionalized brainwashing invented by facist liberals to advance socialism and eliminate cultural/social/gender differences that, for some reason, may offend the very few. The irony is that politcal correectness is offensive in itself. According to politcal correctness, identifying a person by their race i..e “black” insinuates bigotry or that persons who want a control on illegal immigration are racists. Political correctness is the dumbest philosophy and has become a laughing stock today. When hearing politically correct people speak, I just want to punch them in their face. They sound condescending and act like we are a bunch of racist, socially-challenged nitwits who can’t think for ourselves. The funny thing about politically correct people is that they don’t know what they believe, and walk around and talk like they’re in Oz and oblivious to society. It’s the politically correct morons that are the real idiots and not the regular people. It is out of control in America. Examples mof political correctness:

heavily laden, weight challenged, person of size

visually impaired, visually challenged (when it's not a challenge and no ability is present)

Guns: firearms

Retarded: mentally challenged

Skinny: slim, lean

African American. How can you be African while being American? You can also be African without being black. Some “Africans” are even white.

Minority: person of color

humankind so not to offend women. Ironically, MANkind refers to both sexes.

Old: elderly

Gay: homosexual, different sexual orientation

Gambling: gaming

Lying: misleading

Illegal alien: migrant, guestworker

Mexico: south of the border

Hispanic: Latino

Indian: south Asian or just Asian

Chinese, Japanese, Koran, Vietnamese: oriental, but:

Oriental: Asian

little people, while “little people” can identify children

Short: vertically challenged

Politcal correctness makes Universties who's team name honors an indian tribe to be changed, for fear of offending them.

Political correctness will not allow U.S. troops to invade mosques in Iraq to search for WMD, knowing full well they are present, for the fear of offending Muslims.

Political coreectness demands unisex bathrooms.

Politcal correctness allows Muslims (and only Muslims) to have their own “prayer rooms” in airports.

Political correctness allows Musliim male cab drivers to refuse to pick up female passengers.

Politcal correctness, led by the ACLU, demands the removal of the Ten Commandments and Nativity scenes from public view, due to the fraudulent belief of “seperation of church and state.”

Political correctness allows women to attend all-male schools but wont allow men to attend all-female schools.
If you don’t believe that political correctness is bad, just look what it has done to Europe: they longer know what they believe as their society continues to erode and decay.

Often, the biggest defenders of free speach are the liberals. In the case of political correctness (PC) the liberals are killing the 1st amendment. PC is an idea to replace everything that could be considered "ofensive" (whether they are or not) with a more complicated term that may or may not be more offensive (midget-vertically challanged/dwarf or retarded-mentally challanged). Some of the most used PC terms are racial (African American, Hispanic American, Caucasian American, Native American etc)Why can't we all just be Americans?
political correctness is really idiotic way to make sure no one ever has a reason to be angry about anything. Half the time anger brings upon social reform. Alot like Newspeak. PC also makes it almost imposible to give a personel opinion. The Nazis also used a form of PC (they "dealt with the Jewish problem")
Black-African American
Beaner-Hispanic American
White-Caucasian American
Asian-Asian American
Retard-Mentally Challanged
Midget/short-Verticall Challanged
Fired-Laid Off/Let Go
