Political correctness -

The "right to be offended," at virtually any time and under nearly any set of circumstances, is considered to be one of the more sacrosanct contributions of political correctness. -- DONALD DEMARCO, Acting Niggardly

Because I am a man, my opinion regarding the role of women in society no longer counts. Not because I'm not properly briefed regarding women's issues, but because I am a Christian, conservative, white male. Yes sir, I'm the new millennium's latest whipping boy … the receptacle of all society's ills … the pariah of postmodernism … the spawn of all societal sewage. - Doug Giles, Day Dreamin' Anti-Dude Dames,

Political correctness is just tyranny with manners.--Charlton Heston, Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts March 28, 2000

We want to create a sort of linguistic Lourdes, where evil and misfortune are dispelled by a dip in the waters of euphemism.
Robert Hughes, 1993

People find victimhood appealing because they believe it absolves them of their own misdeeds; it imbues them witha sense of righteousness. -- Wendy Kaminer

Political correctness is the natural continuum from the party line. What we are seeing once again is a self-appointed group of vigilantes imposing their views on others. It is a heritage of communism, but they don't seem to see this.--Doris Lessing

Remember, I live in Oregon. I am aware of the attitudes. Political correctness is more righteous than the righteousness of God. God is to blamed not worshipped. This is the state that gives terminally ill people the right to commit suicide, will pour out onto the beaches to save a whale and will march for the right to abortion.
I sometimes ask myself, "What am I doing here?" Then I remember, I can't hide in the Bible Belt. - A Friend in the NW

You must take it as your sworn duty to do your utmost to prevent people from printing, voicing, writing or otherwise disseminating any communication which is either unfavorable to or not in agreement with Leftwing Liberal dogma and you must also strictly enforce Political Correctness, while at the same time doing your best to muzzle and silence those who don't agree with you. Tell adversaries to "Do as I say, and I'll do as I please!" This is not censorship, hypocrisy or Double Standards, but rather, "Freedom of Speech" an important Constitutional Amendment written to give Leftwing Liberals their God-given rights, even if they renounce and don't believe in God and even if they think rights are only for Leftwing Liberals. ~ The Official Leftwing Liberal Handbook ~

Being Politically Correct means always having to say you're sorry. --Charles Osgood

Considering "niggard" a racist word makes no more sense than saying that women personstruate. - Tom Parsons

EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE A VICTIM. And the paradox is that victim status accrues precisely to those who can acquire enough clout to make others afraid of them. Victimhood has become one of the fruits of power. Anyone can be an underdog; the trick is to be a registered, pedigreed underdog. - Joseph Belloc Sobran
