“POLITICALLY CORRECT” – WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?

Now that we have a Supreme Court that makes decisions based on “Compassion” rather than the laws of the land the term “politically correct” means different things to different people?

Webster defines this term “Full Definition of POLITICALLY CORRECT:  conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be eliminated. This appears to be the reason SCOTUS voted to ignore the law on same-sex marriages.

Wikipedia uses a broader term “Political correctness (adjectivally, politically correct, commonly abbreviated to PC) is a pejorative term used to criticize language, actions, or policies seen as being excessively calculated to not offend or disadvantage any particular group of people in society”. This appears to be the definition that SCOTUS used to force the Affordable Care Act down our throat.

My how times have changed and to illustrate my reason for publishing this article let me share some facts. My old friend Bob McGraw shared some real American history facts that possibly reveal the true definition of the term “Politically Correct” by the most honest President we have ever been blessed with. The language is a little raw but if you remember the pressures were somewhat more intense in the world at that particular time.  

BOB’s STORY

Although I consider myself rather fluent in the English language, the term “Politically Correct” was not in my vocabulary. My curiosity got the best of me and I decided to do a little research, and after two weeks of chasing fruitless leads, I found what I’d been looking for at the Truman Library and Museum, in Independence Missouri. 

An unnamed source there sent me copies of four telegrams that were exchanged by President Harry S. Truman and General of the Army Douglas A. MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the Japanese Surrender Agreement.

The contents of those four telegrams exhibited below are exactly as received, not a word having been added or deleted:

(1) Tokyo, Japan 0800-September 1, 1945

To: President Harry S Truman

From: General D A MacArthur

Tomorrow we meet with those yellow bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions!

(2) Washington, D C 1300-September 1, 1945

To: D A MacArthur

From: H S Truman

Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!

(3) Tokyo, Japan 1630-September 1, 1945

To: H S Truman

From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz

Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?

(4) Washington, D C 2120-September 1, 1945

To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz

From: H S Truman

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 sh** by its clean end!

So with special thanks to my friends at the Truman Museum, and of course Harry, you now have a full understanding of what “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS” really means!

My friends, you can see that when Democrats were actually politically conservative they despised the bias that they now promote as the American way. Using Johnny Paycheck’s terms adjusted for my purpose;

 

“Democrats take your “Change” and shove it.”

POLITICALLY CORRECT CHRISTMAS GREETING

Just before the big holiday, I wanted to send some sort of seasons greeting to friends and colleagues, but it is difficult in today’s world to know exactly what to say without offending someone.

So ….. after meeting with the lawyers, and on their advice, I wish to say the following: 

Please accept, with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the summer solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious / secular persuasions and / or traditions of others, or their choice, not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2013, but not without due respect for the calendar of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great (not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country) and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee. 

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her / him or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. The wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

Best Regards (without prejudice)

Thanks Ron for the material to share.
