Political Correctness iz jenerally associated with the left. Wether you consider it an organized movement with sum level uv official support, or just an attitude about proper conduct dependz on how deeply you are rapped up in either rite or left wing politics.
If you dont pay much attention to either, you probably woud hav a hard time explaining why it’s not the same thing az good mannerz.
Dont uze ethnic slang termz, dont ascribe stereotypical karacteristics to peepl, dont throw insults just kuz you disagree. In short, be polite, respectful and tolerant.
That’s how I perseevd it for a long time, but gradually realized it had metastesized into something more complicated and less benine. Read this Wiki paje if you want the detailz.
Now, sum 30 yirz after rite leaning authorz began riting cautionary books about it, you can find endless Youtubez about run amok PC at collejez. There are actual polisiez in organizationz big and small banning sertain wordz and prescribing rediculous replasements. Naturally, to maintain salez numberz, new books became progressivly more alarmist, propozing all sorts uv conspirasy theoryz.
There iz enuf hysteria on both sidez to support the accuzationz uv excess.
Wut haz been masked by all the hubbub iz the fact that stupidity quietly jumped on the back uv the PC bandwagon, taking a free ride at everybody else’z expens.
It wuz so gradual and insidious, that its impossible to say wen it began to be nonPC to call out stoopid statements or clearly say sumwun iz stoopid. Yes, there iz and alwayz haz been a waiver for comedianz, but its actually just the same waiver they are granted for swearing and pushing the envelope uv social akseptability. Ordinary peepl including politicianz and newzreaderz hav not been able to say ‘that’s stoopid’ without risking a reprimand by their PC associates. At best you coud only state the facts that show the contrast to reality or list the many incorrect statements sumwun haz made.
And yes, it haz alwayz been impolite, but I hav the impression that there were limits on how stoopid your statements coud be befor youd be laffed at and suffer a loss uv credibility.
The basic prinsiple that one’z reputation depended on your wordz being true & accurate went away.
The Republican party capitalized on this. I’d be suprized if it wuz intentional, but its possible that they recognized the spesific opportunity to get away with ever more outrajous idiosy, knowing that the PC leftyz woud not call them out for it.
I mark the intentionally belijerent stoopidity uv Sarah Palin’z “how’z that hopey chanjey thing workin out for yu?” az the beginning uv my realization that the GoP wuz conducting a campain to attract peepl, to put it in PC termz, hoo havent bothered to consider the finer points uv the consept uv sivilized society.
To put it in nonPC termz, idiots, assclownz, bogarts, actual low IQ moronz.
I hav a few namez for them: Gullibullz. Bleevrz. Peepl who hav bad lojik and want to beleev sumthing, so dont need to think.
To them the GoP/Fox propaganda network coud tell any lie. Any story, no matter how clearly refuted by the facts, coud be dumped into their hedz without fear uv the consequensez that shoud be suffered for looking stoopid. They will check nothing!
And thanks to the pervasiv PC culture, theze gullibullz can boldly spout the last nite’s tokking points supplied by Hannity without fear uv ridicule by their frendz or coworkerz.
Perhaps, if the main stream media desided early on to immediatly and LOUDLY call out each and every lie and condem the tellerz till they stopt repeating them, they may hav been able to nip this stinkweed in the bud.
But they did not.
Aside from Kieth Olbermann and maybe a few lesser known commentatorz, it took the media most uv the last decade befor they coud utter the word ‘lie’ about anything or ‘liar’ about anybody. Totally verboten by PC rulez!
It took Donald Trump’s non stop planet Jupiter scale hurricane uv liez to finally blow down that barrier!
Too late. The damaj haz been and continuez to be dun.
R politicianz feel no shame telling their stoooopid fablez on national TV. Not just on Fox, but on Meet The Press, This Week and any other real newz show that will hav them on.
The GoPs see it az an opportunity to reach Demz and independents, hoping they are so uninformed that they will at least develop sum dowt about the real storyz. Maybe sum % will also be gullibl enuf to swich sidez, they hope. Sertainly no downside to trying!
It painz me to watch Chuck Todd or George Stephanopolis having to sit there az wun uv Trump’s cabinet stoojez or R congressmen shamelessly defend hiz latest atrosity with utter nonsense, absolutely NEVER ansering a simple direct question. They are stuck with the duty uv trying to be unbiased. They bravely adhere to the prinsipl uv journalistic integrity requiring the prezentation uv both sidez, even az the ‘other’ side slaps them in the fase with insult-to-intellijens idiotic liez.
If Chuck reached across the table and slapped Steve Mnuchin’z clownish fase wile he wuz blathering, he woud be a national hero!
If George kikt Jim Jordan under the table to stop hiz moronic schpiel, he woud dezerv a Pulitzer prize!
They’d both be fired immediately, but seriously, they woud feel GREAT! They woud be GREAT! And they are alredy rich, so coud afford to be jobless for the rest uv their livez, even IF for sum stranje reazon they coudnt capitalize on their new hero status.
We can daydream, cant we? Its still permissable to wish, iznt it? I suppoze I’ll hav to call the local PC International Council offis to check.
More realisticly, I think that after such an embarrassing performans, the hed uv the newz department shoud bring the offending GoP into the offis and tell him that he will not be invited back for a yir, then on hiz next appearens, if he offendz agen, he will be permanently banned.
Plain and simple, they are insulting the public’s intellijens wen they expect us to beleev them. They are abuzing the networks and their sponsorz by pushing propaganda insted uv providing information that they may hav due to their lofty taxpayer supported pozitionz. Shameful betrayal uv the nation’z trust.
And their supporterz, all the gullibullz and bleevrz, shoud feel shame for helping empower them.
And the Democratic party leaderz and the real newz organizationz shoud realize how poorly they hav handled the situation. Lame. Inattentiv. Shortsited. Neglijent.

Well, Chuck Todd is absolutely the worst when it comes to (for lack of a better term) “leading a witness”. Here is the actual question asked by Todd. “Is it wrong for a U.S. President to solicit a foreign government to discredit a political opponent?” You see, the question is not actually news, it is just a talking point spewed over and over. It’s akin to the do you still beat your wife question. There is no answer that does not incite the left to go insane with rhetoric about the evil president.
The fact that this President did not do the thing related to the question is never mentioned. The question could read, “Do you think it was wrong for President Trump to ask Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens or he wasn’t going to get military aid?” The guest could then answer, “He didn’t do that, read the transcript!!”
Clearly the answer to the first question has to be “yes”. It is wrong for ‘a’ president to do that but if any guest would answer that way, all you would hear for the next week is “So and So says Trump tried to rig our election”
753, I have asked on at least fifteen different occasions for you to provide just one provable fact that justifies your beliefs and you have yet to be able to do it. tisk tisk tisk.

Exept its rite there in the transcript. It linez up exactly with wut the wislblower sed. It showz exactly wy they tried to hide it in a classified computer. THEY know he wuz extorting Zelensky. They know he tried to do a quid pro quo. Herez Chuck interviewing Ron Johnson, hoo knowz Trump iz az gilty az Satan, so duz nothing but deflect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xzgs2kyNpW0
You are desperately trying to beleev. Just giv it up.
October 14, 2019 at 11:25 pm
What EXACTLY is “it”??
“its” rite there in the transcript
“It” linez up exactly with wut the wislblower sed
“It” showz exactly wy they tried to hide it in a classified computer.
Then they are really lousy at hiding stuff eh? The entire world has a link to the transcript. Are you saying they hid it in plain sight?
October 15, 2019 at 8:56 am
Are you denying that they ever put it in the extra-classified computer? Are you denying that Pompeo denied any knowlej uv the call, even tho he lissend to it? Are you denying the contents wich can only be interpretted in 1 way? Are you deny that in the context uv the actionz uv Guiliani, Pence, and all the otherz, that it wuz part uv a campain to create a false impression uv corruption agenst Joe Biden and hiz son?
The reazon Trump released the transcript iz bekuz he iz a moron and thot it woud make him look ‘strong’ to hiz idiotic fanz. The powerful Prezident, uzing hiz power to powerfully cut thru the red tape and forse another country’z weak little prezident to get an investigation going.
Remember Romney on election day in 2012? Thot he wuz winning up to the last owr bekuz he wuz getting all hiz info from the eko chamber. Same with Trump now.

So we’re going to answer questions with questions. OK.
Are you denying that Obama had his phone call transcripts placed on the same “extra-classified” server? (It’s called a S.C.I.F. Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility. Each building and department has one. It prevents specific classified information being spread across the entire I.C. intelligence community) Does “double secret probation” sound familiar??
Are you denying Biden’s corruption is on video for all to see? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCF9My1vBP4
Are you denying Sleepy Joe brought his equally sleepy son on Air Force 2 to get him a job in a field he knows nothing about?
Are you denying that Comey launched a counterintelligence investigation into a U.S. citizen with no predicate but opposition research paid for by Hillary and the DNC?
And to think, All I asked was “What EXACTLY is “it”??”
Sorry I got the name wrong though. 537,357,753???
October 15, 2019 at 10:13 am
Yes, I am denying that Obama plased any fone callz into a classified system to hide criminal activity.
Yes, I am denying Bidenz corruption iz on video for all to see. The very reazon he had the Ukrain prosecutor fired iz bekuz the prosecutor wuznt prosecuting anybody. The Barisma investigation had been shelved a yir earlier. And in case you didnt notis, RT iz a Russian propaganda ‘newz’ outlet. Or maybe you dont care? Odd how the “sexual misconduct” claim seemz to hav disapeared.
Yes, I am denying he ‘got him a job’ by bringing him anywhere on Air fors 2. The so-called ‘job’ uv being on the bord uv directorz in any organization iz often a bogus way uv giving money to cronyz. In this case, it wuz to add the credential uv a US Prezidential connection to the company to help secure massive international fuel supply contracts. That this iz common practis iz wut shoud really be bugging you.
Yes, I am denying that Comey launched an investigation based only on the Steele dosier. Read the timeline: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Russian_interference_in_the_2016_United_States_elections
And here iz exactly wut ‘it’ iz: EXTORTION
and QUID PRO QUO

Since this page appears to only have two views I no longer feel it worth my time to participate.
You are indeed quite tedious.
1. The fact that all presidential Head of State phone transcripts are stored on the White House S.C.I.F. removes any criminal component from the act. The release of this specific transcript certainly flies in the face of ‘Trying to hide criminal activity’.
2. Uhhhmmmm, NO! The investigation had not stopped a year earlier and SUPRISE!! the Obama administration was pressing Ukraine to provide ‘dirt’ on Trump in 2016! I know, if you don’t hear it from Rachel or Todd you are incapable of believing it.
3. So you acknowledge that it happened and it is common practice while denying that it happened.
4. I have already debunked using wikipedia as a news source.
5. Show me phrase and verse where President Trump extorted Volodymyr Zelensky during that phone call.
6. There is no crime titled “quid pro quo” in the U.S. legal system.

Its election day 2020. The newz media (the REAL newz media) regularly callz Trump a liar now. It haz no obvious effect on the gullibullz. Its too late for at least a million American sitizenz hoo are either ded or permanently damajd by the coronavirus. And they still regularly let rite wing propagandists ramble on in interviewz.
