Each side is creating a dialogue which, as heavily as possible to bolster their own side, incorporates the idea of PCness. And each side, as it is seen in the US, fights against propped up ideas, and the side whichever, is utilizing their own use of PCness, to attack other PCness. And everything becomes false from the get go.


So the ultimate answer is "Everybody lies."?

Actually, I'm good with that. Imminently eloquent and appropriate.

Lol, indeed it is an art form. I haven't seen much of Ann Coulter lately, but besides what some people see it as, it is magnificent as a form of art. Even a "liberal" would see it as something treasured. It really is good and she is brilliant.

"Brilliant" would not be the term I would choose for Ms. Coulter.

"Tyrannically Cunning" might be one.

"Immanently Deceptive" another.

You can tell from the way that they describe the definitions of the words that there's a very clear bias in play here.

Conservative political correctness? It just sounds like yet another name for crazy left wingers to throw at crazy right wingers.

Also, let's not pretend that the PC police don't politicize words as well. The recent example of "thug" suddenly being racist is a prime example. Both sides are crazy, and both sides need to go away and let the rest of us live.

Where can we get a common definition of "political correctness" ... let's try Merriam Webster.org:



conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be eliminated


Right, so your postulate, AIRedneck, is that "crazy right wingers" aren't political, don't try to redefine words more to their liking, and aren't offended by how others talk or express themselves?

You don't think there is, well, a "right way" to say things for conservatives? You don't think that people are punished if they say the "wrong thing"? Or attack the "wrong group?"

That has not been my experience.

Further, who are "the PC Police"? Do they have a website?

Christians are painfully PC, when you dig down and point out how brainwashed/hypocritical most of them are...its like telling a kid kid that Santa Claus doesn't exist.

One of my fav's "Freedom Fries" and more recent in memory:

Freedom fries is a political euphemism for French fries in the United States. The term came to prominence in 2003 when the then Republican Chairman of the Committee on House Administration, Bob Ney, renamed the menu item in three Congressional cafeterias in response to France's opposition to the proposed invasion of Iraq. Although originally supported with several restaurants changing their menus as well, the term fell out of use due to declining support for the Iraq War. Following Ney's resignation as Chairman, it was quietly reverted.

I'm pretty sure it's not just about re-branding. Have you tried not being Christian in the Bible Belt? Just for one example.


I am, and nobody cares.

I'm Atheist...I lived (and sort of still do) in the Bible belt.

Everything is going fine. What's your attempted point?

Whereas political correctness attempts to minimize offense through the rebranding of certain words and terms to be neutral or inclusive

This is a false premise from the get-go. PC isn't about rebranding words to be neutral, it's about banning words and terms which the PC police don't find neutral or inclusive. That's a massive difference. Take the word "midget" for example. Supposedly it is un-PC to call Vern Troyer a midget. If PC was about "rebranding," then the common word 'midget' would be accepted and embraced as a word that carries no negative connotation.

I also think the ideology behind 'Conservative correctness" (if that's even a thing) is mostly tongue in cheek. "Freedom fries," for example, was not a serious thing. It was a brief middle finger to France and nothing more.

People take themselves too seriously, IMO.

If you're referring to anything actual and specific ... I'll be glad to address it.

If you're just managing your mystique ... carry on.

So, you're saying that that conservatives (and particularly the conservative media which supplies daily talking points) don't ban words and terms? That they aren't super sensitive to how people talk about certain topics, correcting or accusing the speaker of being "anti-Christian, anti-Semite, anti-American, communist, marxist, atheist, whatever other -ist" when ever their feelings get hurt?

If so, I say you're mistaken.
