The wide world of Political Correctness has entered its 'infancy of maturity' in dialog and reach now, just in the past few years, and it is breathtaking on many levels. Herein we shall compare the many tenets of what PC talks (how 'it' describes 'itself') to what it walks ('its' actions and behaviors in practice). Welcome to the ultimate nexus of mindbogglingly self-defeating hypocrisy!

While PC is the ideology, there's no easier term than "SJW" to denote the extremists of this kind of thinking. It's actually a great example of something or other below, as "social justice" is the supposed cause they 'fight for' where SJW stands for "Social Justice Warrior". That they apparently take great offense to that is the perfect lead-in for just about any critique of this most ly obtuse social movement. I prefer to use the SJW term to denote the PC extremist types from the ranks of progressives in general, so unless you are one of these extremists then you really shouldn't take offense to my throwing the word around (which is often for ease & efficiency of sentence structure).

The salad before the steak:

HOW I DEFINE SJW:
Social Justice Warriors are Social Justice Activists turned into hate fueled extremists due to adopting Critical Race Theory / Progressive Stack (CRT/PS) concepts of Political Correctness + Victim Mentality deeply into their worldview / ideology. These types tend to obsess over CRT/PS. Their notions of reality tend to be very warped due to CRT/PS, such as how they think that if they're on the side of CRT/PS that they are therefore incapable of being a racist / sexist / etc bigots. They tend to be offended by / defend any and all sorts of criticisms of PC / SJW / BLM and such related major talking points, even when mass murder is involved. They tend to "troll" threads (derail them, ad hominem attack their opponents, etc). Not all SJW's are proper "Special Snowflakes" I doubt, but this new "Special Snowflake Generation" we're seeing unfold has them erupting out into the social scene en masse, as they often tend to identify with the "Oppression Scale" type concepts that CRT/PS is all about. Instead of debate policy issues, they tend to try to keep everything centered on Identity Politics, which is interesting as most of them are white people driven by White Guilt. In this way they tend to be walking cliches of "misery loves company", as projecting their guilt and bigotry and self-loathing onto others is like their daily bread & butter.

The steak:

ANTI-RASICT?

Aside from people who go around hurling racial slurs at such respective individuals with malicious intent, nothing screams to me a racist personality type than people whom consistently show themselves to be not only obsessed with racial issues while typically making a habit of attempting to demonize their critics by labeling them as "racists". This most recent full court press by the Media, Hillary Clinton and the sorts who support her to label the "Alt-Right" as malicious white supremacists and then set about lumping into it pretty much any and all opposition to PC, progressivism and Hillary's POTUS campaign, in particular Donald Trump and his supporters. The absurdity of the whole affair was best underscored by the fact that virtually everybody this smear was rapidly applied to over Social & Corporate Media had hardly ever even heard of "Alt-Right"!


ANTI-SEXIST?

Modern political correctness has its roots heavy handedly found in 'militant' feminism, and these types of arguments are great indicators to if somebody might be a true to stereotype SJW. Following the logic above, where they have an obsession with sexist topics and wielding the derogatory SEXIST buzzword at critics even when not warranted. But it doesn't stop there, following the widely observed behavior of feminists where they may readily physically assault male critics knowing they wont likely face any criminal charges because the judicial system here is heavily lopsided in their favor (which is sexist).



ANTI-DIVERSITY

PC harps endlessly about being all about "diversity", but it always ends up being about the groups people are in. Then of course thanks to notions such as the Progressive Stack (PS) it then insists on telling us how we should weight the importance of any groups we might happen to fall into. The groups it puts the most weight on are the ones we were born into and/or have no control over. This is a complete disconnect from individuality, where part of growing up is supposed to be about learning for ourselves the various social constructs we self-identify and self-align with. People stressing the most over social groupings that when the scope is so limited the only expected outcome is a generalized average of conformism is an outright attack on true diversity of individuality.

PRO-INCLUSIVE?

This is a major theme in PC circles, and yet across the board one can find endless examples of this lot trying to stamp out 'everyone' which they haven't claimed as their own (which is basically all Straight White Males (SWM). One of their favor slander terms is to label people as "homophobes", yet they are often just the same as actual homophobes being these new 'cisophobes' ("cis" is the term made up for being your 'normal' gender). A great example of the overall issue here is the semi-recent 'Straight White Men Banned From Equality Conference' ordeal:

News that a university lecturers’ union has banned straight, white men from attending their equality conferences in a bid to create “safe spaces” is deeply depressing.
University and College Union equality conferences are held exclusively for women, LGBT, ethnic minorities or disabled people, and members must declare their “protected characteristic” when applying to attend. Surely UCU can see the irony of hosting an equality conference where – as George Orwell wrote – some are more equal than others? heatst.com...


Another example is their hypocrisy on this talking point is their ongoing war against Christianity:

Authorities are cracking down on public expressions of the Christian faith all over the nation, and yet atheists in New York City are allowed to put up an extremely offensive billboard in Time Square this holiday season that shows a picture of Jesus on the cross underneath a picture of Santa with the following tagline: “Keep the Merry! Dump the Myth!” ... The number of gay characters on television is at an all-time record high. Meanwhile, there are barely any strongly Christian characters to be found anywhere on television or in the movies, and if they do happen to show up they are almost always portrayed in a very negative light. thetruthwins.com...

If they truly are about promoting admirable inclusiveness then how can they justify such double standards?

REVERSE DISCRIMINATION

PC is supposed to be entirely anti-discriminatory, of course. All about herein are PC-in-practice examples to the contrary, as well as just about anywhere else et. al. you look their world are endless on-the-contrary-examples of hypocrisy on this subject are virtually limitless. And yet all that isn't even the true purpose of this section. Because PC Culture is deeply and overtly rooted in militant feminism, and stoked with Critical Race Theory, with the combined 'Straight White Males are Oppressors Model (SWMOM)', the typical (rather expected) outcome for followers of this stuff commonly results in hate. It comes in several flavors even.

Most practitioners of this "magical social thinking" are whites actually. Of which some huge portion of them are males. White guilt AKA self-loathing (which is learned via the ideology) usually is heavily involved here. Yet its more complicated because the learned hate in general also comes from the victim complex many of them exhibit (which in most cases is sure to have been purely learned as opposed to deeply experienced). Then you have actual minorities, blacks in particular, where there is a deeply sensitive history involved, which unfortunately for them especially (in terms of a future of true coexistence) said history just can't be let go off yet. This is an expected outcome as the Democrat's keep pushing the victim mentality model into their heads, while Democrat policies (related to the War On Drugs in particular) keep failing them miserably. Since the Democrat's (progressives) whole spiel with the black community makes everything about race (total pandering), how could they let go of the past?

Anyways, all things considered, the PC way is all about pushing this "Oppressor Model", which riles up HATE, and already in it's 'infancy of maturity' this social trend has the followers of this logic out in force discriminating the "oppressors". Said discrimination's often exercise extreme prejudice, which not only may come in the threats of violence & rape & death but already there are clear examples where these sets of ideology have driven people to commit murder (including mass murder). And this is just covering the race portion of the pie, where there's all their other identity political issues where you can find more of the same. In closing, this is rather extraordinary as if anybody ought to be able to know better then to victimize people it would be all of this mindset. What greater backwardness than this social movement bent on changing all of the oppression of times past, by reversing the trend to then be the new Oppressor of the future? And in just a few short years it's already clearly proving to be a failed model.


PRO-GAY?

One of the biggest social groups SJW's are obsessed with 'protecting' are gays, just so long as they tow the line. A great example is with this anti-PC celebrity sort of journalist Milo Yiannopoulos. He's an open flamboyantly gay man, who you might expect the SJW's would support given their often extreme predisposition to blindly propping up gays. Yet Milo is anti-Feminist, anti-PC, etc, meaning to the SJW's he's an enemy to be destroyed (endless examples of this same effect can be observed when blacks speak out against PC they get labelled "Uncle Tom's" and worse).


UNSAFE SPACES

This next issue caused a bit of controversy this year with Obama's transgender school restroom edict. It states any person is entitled to havign a safe space to use the toilet without getting bullied, and that any person can claim to be transgendered and use any room they desire without having to show any outward signs transgender or have any medical documentation of being "gender dysphoric" (the mental condition that causes people to have mixed signals in their brains regarding their gender identity). The edicts applies to all national public school restrooms including elementary schools. There is zero compromise on this issue, where its supposed to be about giving this less than 1% of the population of gender dysphoric kids a safe space to take a dump without getting bullied, yet flushes down the toilet the safe space of 100% of all the girls from sexual assault... Where ANY boy, ANY sexual predator / pervert / etc can simply say "I'm transgender", and then have an excuse to have free reign over the little girls room. This whole issue is one of the most bizarre in this primer, not because of the whole transgender issue, but instead because one of the most hardcore issues that SJW's go wild over is RAPE. And yet here they rabidly advocate setting up this situation where sexual assaults in school restrooms (already a major issue before this) is most assuredly going to rise in the future.

CONSPIRACY THEORISTS

This whole PC trend reached maturity during Obama's tenure (Obama who is their messiah even worse than Dubya was for many of his supporters in his later POTUS years). The whole rise of all of this couldn't have happened without Obama, the Democrat's and the Establishment Media who during year Obama year one already made it their norm to throw the race card whenever Obama was criticized (just like progessives do by default across the board today). So the SJW's have had the president, the Democrat's and the Media as their shepherds, and as such they tend to defend all of the above in general, while entirely discounting any and all arguments no matter how compelling that against them as being biased / controlled / etc.

If there were one thing that traditional conspiracy theorists of all stripes would agree on I'd say its a total distrust of the Government and/or Media (which are one in the same in modern America). So by this metric entirely anti-conspiracy theorist, especially as many stripes of CT's would argue that all of this PC stuff is hardcore social engineering thought control type stuff. SJW's tend to loathe such statements.

And yet more hypocrisy as half the stuff the Establishment pushes on us is to drive so many different agenda's all their own Official Conspiracy Theories, in general. The real story here though is how just this past week Hillary and her SJW minion horde have gone full conspiracy theorist as not their biggest set of talking points is all about how there's this evil RACIST vast "Alt-Right" conspiracy of a movement. The term is all based on some fringe 'new' ideology (which ironically enough they have now popularized), which has been invoked as the new one size fits all smear label, which sure enough lumps basically anybody that opposes Hillary / Obama / PC / SJW's / etc, from conservatives to libertarians and so on, including, you guessed it, "Conspiracy Theorists"!

ANTI-SCIENCE

This is an subject that I've only been noticing in passing so far, but dig this. By their title of being "progressives" (whom tend to be atheists n less) one would think they would embrace science. Instead they have bizarre twists in hating it (when it doesn't suit them anyways). Sound familiar? Hint: Creationists. Anyways, much of it has to do with "science being sexist". The concept involves the apparent fact that there aren't a lot of women in science fields, while it goes much deeper in alleging that there's an inherent sexism in 'the actual' science itself. Of course if women wanted to work in science fields that's their choice, as colleges have more women and women have easier time landing professional jobs now than men. Go to any small tech college and when you see it's 95% male student body, the fact that they simply aren't choosing those fields becomes clear. On the science studies, well fine is mostly published by men there might be some male biases (although most science has little to do with gender and the like). But they take it a step further in all these odd arguments about even math being some 'patriarchal tool of oppression'. Take in the following SJW quote to see what I mean:


"It denies the centrality of emotion to reason, strips away subjectivities and context, and privileges the hetero-normative account wherein logic triumphs over feeling. It allows us to reduce the human experience into cold numbers and symbols; makes space for the manipulation of ideas through cold, unthinking procedures that pay no heed to social meanings; and reduces the lived experience into a crude, calculating machine. It is the handmaiden of gender oppression, reactionary conservatism, and totalitarianism." www.econjobrumors.com...



THE MICROAGGRESSION FUN POLICE

One of their more interesting terms is this whole "microagression" concept, which refers to “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color.” Of course its use goes well beyond racial based concepts. One perfect example is the word "retard", which originally had practical even scientific usage, but because it eventually came to refer to 'handicapped' people its now evil. I suspect in that regard originally it wasn't even used in a insulting sense, while even the word handicapped is evil now (the word that I'm pretty sure was made up just for them to not be offensive). So the microaggression logic goes that any and all use of the word "retarded" now is completely unacceptable. Scratch its very existence right out of the history & dictionary's why don't we?

The above is a great example of how nitpicky these lot are, where here the hypocrisies of this section come into view. The other side of this "microaggression" coin is their whole anti-Shaming initiative. "Body Shaming" / "Fat Shaming" are a choice example of this idea. Note how they have lists of labels and such to demonize people about being, such as "racist", which they get off on Shaming people for being. But as is often the case, even that isn't enough for them as they also seem to get off on all manner of other insults against their opponents such as Intelligence Shaming. Of course to them, anyone who doesn't think like they do are "stupid" (one of the words they list as a microaggression) and every version of that word thereof. They even invented their own microaggression phrase specific to this point, the "Low Information" voter (anybody that would vote Trump for any reason).

Their stance against all this in this section is yet another intense oddity, as this year in regards to Donald Trump one of their big 'attacks' against him was in insulting the size of his hands (which IS Body Shaming). The hypocrisy ran so deep on this one, that comedian Ellen Degeneres made a (funny) video clip of him at a debate, where they patched images of baby hands over his, which looked like he had been born with serious birth defects. Yet another example of their staunchly held notions of what is allowed is only valid when it suits them, which might not be so bad in this example, except even comedy isn't free from their oppressive reach.

OCCUPY THE WHITE HOUSE!

No doubt that race victimization issue isn't at the core of so much of all this. Blacks are their shining example, which they have entirely latched onto. Of course there's the history of slavery of over 100 years ago, and plenty of deplorable nastiness for 100 years following the Civil War. Eventually though the Civil Rights Act passed, and things were moving the right direction. For most people alive stuff from that long ago might as well be ancient history, except the part where in the 1970's the War On Drugs (WOD) was put into play, and now in hindsight it's entirely clear that it has proven to be an extremely oppressive model on minorities in general and blacks in particular. Not much progress has come about for the black community as as result, and not even with Obama as POTUS and BLM on the march has hardly any significant change to the WOD has been achieved. I blame this on the fact that BLM only puts all of the hate on the cops (and whites) instead of on the policies. I argue that in light of the the only real expected successful outcome of such a movement is devisive race hate (which is already measurable).

This summer when looking at all this stuff for the first time really, it didn't take me long to figure out the one big thing that would 'save the black community', and how while the progressives are generally against it, why it is they haven't been making ending the WOD their biggest priority. I wrote my huge epic piece about all of it, which was very critical of both the WOD and SJW's in this light, yet in the process via boatloads of data and insights I clearly demonstrated that WOD truly has been oppressive against blacks. Of course I didn't get any love from progressives for my work there, so as a follow up I wrote another sort of open letter calling for them to Occupy the White House to end the WOD and "save the blacks". I think only one single progressive type even bothered replying there, despite how for the past month I've been using this fact to rub in the faces of the resident outspoken progressives for their supposed love for and intense cause to help the black community being nothing but a charade.

THE GLOBALISTS

One of the major tenets of modern progressives is this while "Globalism" thing, while they are also anti-Nationalist. Totally open borders across the entire world is sort of the jist of it. I suppose a lot of this thinking came from the past few decades of liberal immigration arguments, coupled with the modern day sentiments enabled by the "Global Village Network" (the Internet), and then of course the rest of this PC sort of multicultural obsessionism. One might think that thanks to the Internet, where the world really is a sort of global village now, that might be good enough. Nope.

Anyways, the jist I suppose is that they like to believe that every culture on earth can all be in the same pot together without boiling over into dust. Out great America surely provides a lot of all this kind of gushy feelings, but I argue that people need to realize that America isn't all these cultures together, it's people from all these different cultures together. To me there isn't any proper "American Culture", at least not outside of corporate media driven entertainment & politics (the bulk of which I find to be a huge embarrassment). To me it is this legacy of heritage, where the goals most people came here to seek was prosperity and the freedom to be who they want without having others shove their ideals down their throats (which as we're seeing in here can easily become one of the worst kinds of persecution).

Moving on, as nice as these globalist sentiments can sound and one day might be plausible, in reality in today's vast world ramming all of the cultures together is an entirely hopeless affair. We're talking the cultures themselves, not just people from them. Many, perhaps even most of the worlds inhabitants, these individuals aren't ready for it, nor would they have any despite or willingness to come and assimilate into the kind of non-oppressive values this nation was founded on. All the while, trying to force it upon others especially on the global scale is nothing short of Neo-Colonialism.

Some Examples Of How Hopelessly Futile Globalism Currently Is:
*Radical Islam / Sharia Law can't seem to coexist with anybody (EU perfect example).
*American Progressive Extremists can't seem to coexist with conservatives / libertarians / etc.
*Communists CAN'T coexist with any other ideology.

The list surely goes on. See any parallels above? Note how American progressiveness sort of bridges the gap between the other two (in terms of sympathy in particular)?



Recently I made a thread asking how Globalism isn't anti-American, to which hardly a single progressive even tried to respond on topic:
www.abovetopsecret.com...


ANTI-RAPE?

I'll keep this one short. Just some quick examples of the hypocrisy in their area that tends to get blown way out of proportion. The backstory is that feminists in particular make being against rape their biggest shtick. They go as far as allege that America is a "Rape Culture", despite all of the laws ad public shaming by all but rapists against this sort of thing. Now consider www.judicialwatch.org..." target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">the story of the PC oriented Army Training Manual draft that made a bit of news a while ago, how soldiers in Afghanistan were to become entirely respectful of Taliban'esque traditions over there, including the part where children even below the age of ten years old are pawned off to be wed, and how the "consummation" often occurs at or about that age. Then consider this sentiment of a feminist in regards to when straight white males end up in prison (even if for drugs "offenses" of course as that's half the people in prison):

PRO-MEXICO?

Here in the U.S., there's no greater example of the obtuse nature of SJW's in regards to immigration, globalization and such than the whole Mexican border controversy. This is a huge topic most are familiar with, but there's a couple really good examples to perfectly highlight this talking point. First note that basically anybody to suggest say building a wall and arguments like that, are pretty much sure to get labeled and smeared as being "racist" "xenophobes" etc. Now note that Hillary Clinton in 2006 is on video going through a list of talking points regarding the 'open border' situation almost verbatim to what Donald Trump is now being labeled a RACIST for. Now consider how in Trump's visit this week with el presidente de Mehico, even he supported sealing the border due to there own domestic problems due to it being the way it's been. Following the usual SJW logic, this should have them being smeared and shouted down as being RACISTS as they're doing to The Donald (even to the point of literally rioting at his rallies on multiple occasions this year).

ISLAM

This one could go on in this section for ages, but to over-simplify it for sake of presentation, there's no religion that SJW's are more sympathetic towards than Islam, despite the fact that Sharia Law is the most oppressive offender in human rights with particular regards to women, children (including rape), homosexuals and so on. It is also a socially, religiously & politically imperialist mindset that above all others commonly shows a total intolerance to outside groups and their influence (where supposedly SJW's are anti-imperialist). How all of this is even possible defies all possible reason, outside of some scripted logic sent down the pike from the agenda driven think tank(s) that surely exist as covert fountainheads to this whole affair, and/or following the arguments that liberal psychology has inherent authoritarian mechanisms.

ANTI-IMPERIALIST?

Supposedly SJW's are anti-imperialist, yet their overbearing evangelism is textbook Social Imperialism. Globalization is one of their big time agendas, yet in practice globalization is Political Imperialism as evidenced in the EU. The EU is a perfect case study here, where an wide open influx of unchecked Muslim's across the 'continent' has all hell breaking lose over there (a huge subject). Colonialism, the ultimate yester-century example of militaristic imperialism, is a specific example of European Exceptionalism (EE) which SJW's are outspoken against. Note that EE is the basis of "Europe" widely being labeled as being a "separate" continent from "Asia" (which is anti-inclusive!), despite the reality that both comprise the (properly defined) continent of Eurasia. Well guess what, said map model (based on EE), and the general anti-inclusive EE feeling shared by many Europeans, are by and large the entire basis of the political imperialist European Union movement.

ANTI-NATIONALIST?

The European Union is a super-state federation which is often described rather accurately as being "The United States of Europe" (a nation). The SJW's revere the EU, thinking of it as a great triumph of globalization (despite the fact is yet another nation). A great highlight of the EU being their baby is the semi-recent ordeal where Great Britain voted to "BR-Exit" the EU. Immediately following the vote SJW's went on social & corporate media warpath to demonize the people voted to Leave as being "racist" "xenophobic" "stupid" and so on type insults.


ANTI-FASCIST?

It seems most people misuse this word er phrase, including our beloved 'word nazi' PC's. The basic definiton reads: "A governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism." While on the surface SJW's are pro-globalization, as seen above with the EU, technically this could still be applied to them. Or one could just swap the word globalist in place of nationalist, factor in how anti-capitalism & Marxism (which calls for state control of ALL industry)) is very commonly something these sorts of liberals advocate, along with the rest herein that definition of fascism isn't so far off from describing the SJW folks. More playing on the "national" word: consider how when a state takes over control of its industries & resources is known as "nationalizing" them. The true Communist advocates nationalizing such. As we can see tying to use simple words & definitions can be a tedious affair in trying to describe a "fascist", while as far as liberty goes, once you have proper communism or fascism its all about the same for the little people outside of the power structure, so perhaps the better way to go is in overall tone is int he outward behavior of these types of people, which brings us to our next section...

ANTI-NAZI?

In hindsight, one thing can be said in defense of the German citizens of the Nazi era, is that they didn't have themselves as an historical example to reflect on as they went down that route towards "The Final Solution". While it is a term that gets thrown around at pretty much any group from time to time, in US history no other social movement to come along since that era (aside from the Neo-Nazi's) can be demonstrated to more clearly be following the same lines of Identity Political thinking. Where the Nazi's had the Jews to blame all of their failings on, the SJW's even have the same sort of 'Oppressor Model" (the SWM's). If that wasn't enough, it's common for these extremists to outwardly show hate for actual Jews, which is a total contradiction to their entire core on account that Jews are arguably the most oppressed people in all of human history. The list of parallels goes on such as digital age 'book burning' initiatives, and much much more. One would think that in the United States of all places, by people whom refer to themselves as "Progressives" that are supposedly bent on inclusion, that a social de-evolution into textbook Nazism on the large scale would be impossible. Guess again! These are the self-described intellectual class here whom should know better better than anyone else. As some like to say sarcastically when getting hit in the head: "that's smarts"!

FIN

That'll be about it. That's as short as I could keep it. Each section could easily be as long as this entire post and still have plenty of material left to add (without even hardly getting to quoting SJW's). I actually had several others sections but decided to squeeze them into others to keep it from becoming a book. In review, the "PC Movement (PCM)" might as well be called the 'Gotta Shove Multicultural Race Theories & Obscure Gender Studies Crap Down Everyone's Throats While Not Practicing What We Preach Movement (GSMRTOGSCDETWNPWWPM)'.

Damn bro, that was awesome! Wish everyone would just grow them spines back!! I think SJW's are humans who have had their (metaphorical) spines ripped out of them with alien technology and then fed a cocktail of "if your not with us, WE HATE YOU!"

Oh well, thankfully in my experience, this has only been limited to the internet. Real life has mostly spared me exposure to these types thankfully.

S+F! excellent thread! I've noticed SJWs throwing around the "-Privilege" word but that's a whole 'nother post

Seriously? After all that and you can't see it's the SJWs who keep labeling people and putting them in ever smaller boxes?
Read this and tell us who the real "us vs them" instigators.

thoughtcatalog.com...

Sadly, this is a perfect example of, "if you're not with us, you're against us" and the rabid SJW thought process.

ETA I just had to include this brilliant comment by someone who was trying to defend the SJW movement.


People involved in criminal activity are disproportionately tossed into jail or shot by police.

While PC is the ideology


Not an ideology. Not even a behavior exclusive to a particular ideology.


Aside from people who go around hurling racial slurs at such respective individuals with malicious intent, nothing screams to me a racist personality type than people whom consistently show themselves to be not only obsessed with racial issues while typically making a habit of attempting to demonize their critics by labeling them as "racists"


Change "racists" to "SJWs" and you could be describing yourself.

The number of people who actually adhere to CRT nonsense like "microaggressions" and "safe spaces" are relatively few and concentrated among mostly college aged kids looking to prove how enlightened they are, celebrity asshats on Twitter and third-wave feminist misandrists on Tumblr. I would argue that the disproportionate amount of whining that is done only shows that many of the most vocal critics of "PC" are sanctimonious clowns who are at least as obsessed if not more obsessed with self-pity and victimhood as any of the groups they point their fingers at.

Let me ask you a very simple and direct question.

Is this a real problem in your life?

Clearly it must be given your need to cry about it constantly. Are you frequently being called a racist in your day to day life? A sexist? A homophobe? Do people tell you in real life that they need "safe spaces?" Or is it more something you hear about?

Let's consider ATS political forums. How many posters on ATS frequently label other posters as "racists" and "sexists" compared to frequency with which the term "SJW" is bandied about?

In terms of influence and popularity, we're talking about a group that is nowhere near as large as the hippy movement of the 60's and 70's — a youth movement originating on university campuses — and what happened to the hippies? Most of them grew up, cut their hair, boxed up their tie-dye shirts and got jobs.

You're simply the opposite side of the same tear drenched self-righteous coin.

But hey, don't let me get in the way of any special snowflakes claiming their own victim status.

That's quite the thread.

There has been nearly 30 years worth of books now written on PC and it has only gotten worse. The PC crowd sees nothing wrong with it, of course, and all you will get from them is dumb and baffled rage. As you can see, all they end up doing is attacking you.

I haven't read through all of it yet, and forgive me if I'm repeating something already said. . .

but isn't PC a push towards conformity and a move away from individuality?
