Always a pleasure to read what Dan has to say on any given subject…this is no exception!
Groups of people often emulate flocks of sheep. Sheep are not politically correct, but political correctness appears to be a subset of herd behavior.
In October of 2012 I wrote that Political Correctness is a Communicable Disease.
Political correctness (also known as rhetorical cowardice) involves being less than candid, not only about various protected classes but also about unprotected classes. Protected classes include some but not all members of racial (Black, Latin American and American Indian but generally not Oriental) and religious (e.g., Muslim) minorities, gender specific (Feminist and “gay”) and ideological (Librul) groups. Unpleasant truths must not be tolerated. Pleasant truths sometimes are not tolerated — although unpleasant untruths are encouraged — as to members of unprotected (conservative) religious groups (e.g., Jewish, Mormon,
holy rollersand Evangelical) as well as otherwise protected racial (Black and Hispanic) and female (anti-abortion) groups.
