Political correctness (also politically correct or PC) is a term used to describe language, or behavior, which is claimed to be calculated to provide a minimum of offense, particularly to the racial, cultural, or other identity groups being described. Wikipedia
So we have:
Undocumented Workers….vs…………..ILLEGAL ALIEN
Situation……………………….vs………….WAR ON TERROR
Misunderstood Religion……vs…..…..….RADICAL ISLAMIC VIEWS
Withdraw in Iraq……………vs…………..CUT AND RUN
The above are just SOME of the “politically correct” language running around….
What about some of the “politically correct” behavior we have seen:
Breakfast with Santa turned into “Winter Wonderland Breakfast due to complaints of ONE person who considered Santa religious.
City’s around the country are not displaying “Nativity” scenes in fear of lawsuits and offending the minority.
City ordinance “noise levels” have been “revised” despite citizen complaints, so that mosque’s can to their “call to prayer” 5 times per day over loud speakers.
Ten Commandments statues and plaques ordered removed from some schools and city property.
The Pledge of Allegiance under attack by atheists as “unconstitutional”, some children refuse to stand during pledge.
Illegal Aliens take to the streets in 2006 around AMERICA and no one does anything about the disruption because it is “their right to protest”.
Disneyland and Disneyworld cater to gays and lesbians..a place that is famous for catering to our children
Traditional “marriage” under attack
Press “1” for English…..
And, as we know and see everyday…this list goes on!!
So the question….what is all this Politically Correct behavior doing to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?
We have, unfortunately, catered to, and are thus becoming, an “anything I want to do goes, and to hell with everyone else” society. This has been, and continues to be a slipper slope that we have allowed ourselves to go down!!
ILLEGAL aliens want rights, even though they are not here legally in this country…what do our politicians do…………..free health care, anchor babies, free education, a matricula id, and now, even loans thru banks being considered and some approved!! All at the cost of the US Taxpayer!!
CHRISTMAS is under attack by those who hate the judeo-christian religion. Therefore the beauty of a nativity scene and soothing sounds of songs like “Silent Night” are indeed “silent” in many of the malls, the restaurants and other places that people gather! The majority of us who love Christmas and love the meaning of Christmas, while still enjoying all the festivities including gift giving and even Santa are being “crushed” under the weight of those who want to be “politically correct” despite our country’s deep seeded traditions.
MARRIAGE is being attacked by the gays and lesbians in an attempt to change the definition of what marriage is. The long standing traditional values that make up the core of a family are being ridiculed and laughed at for the “live and let live” attitude. Divorce has become an “easy out” and “infidelity” a “cure” for the boredoms of married life. Are we becoming a “Sodom and Gomorrah” society? I remember as a kid learning to spell, to remember family as: Father And Mother I Love You
RELIGION, the judeo-christian founding of our country and nation, is under attack! The Ten Commandants have had a “forced” removal from city properties and schools as “not to offend” the non-religious, the atheist, or the “immigrants” from other countries. They use the excuse “separation of church and state” for these “forced” removals but I do not believe our founding fathers would have agreed. Prayer in our schools has been abolished and even challenged at graduations and valedictorian speeches. It appears the “Christian” religion is the only one that is ever under a microscope and interfered with.
The PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE and our FLAG are constantly under attack. The atheists use the excuse they don’t like “under God” in the pledge, but I expect that that real reason is the hate of our country. Some feel they do not need to stand, even out of respect, when the Pledge is recited and they teach their children this same hate type action. There are those that think it is a “freedom of speech” right to desecrate and burn our Flag to protest not even thinking, or caring, that they are desecrating and dishonoring what our Flag stands for and the men and women that have died protecting its honor and the freedoms of the American people.
I understand that our great nation is made up of immigrants from all over the world. However, the difference between “back in the day” and “today” is that the immigrants that came to our country “back in the day” wanted nothing more than to be Americans.
They loved this country, loved what what this country stood for and wanted the “American Dream” for themselves and their family. They assimilated into the American culture and into American society, which does not mean they forgot their past cultures or traditions, but had they wanted to continue in their past they would never have immigrated to America…they wanted to be AMERICANS!!
“Todays” immigrants want everything that America has to offer, BUT they want America to assimilate to THEIR way of life!! Many refuse to learn the language of our country (English), but want our country to cater to their language. They want what America has to offer, but many want it handed to them on a silver platter and they think that ruining OUR culture and traditions to fit their own wants, needs and beliefs is perfectly acceptable!!
WE, as Americans, must wake up and fight to protect our country, its values, traditions and its sovereignty. We must keep a close eye on the politicians, both federal, state and local, continue to hound them to do the right thing for this country and vote them out of office if they do not comply. We must ban together, as many have done by blogging, writing our representatives, getting involved in forums and groups, and continue to get the word out and educating people!! If we don’t we will wake up one day and not know what country we are living in!!
