I can't call a person from Poland a "pollack".

I can't call a person from Germany a " kraut".

I can call a Jew a Jew.

I can call a native American an Indian?

I can call a white man racist?

I can call a 'n-word' black?

I can call terrorism acceptable?

Well...

That just significantly reduced my IQ by about 30 points.



So thanks for that.

You can use any word you wish to describe anything you wish. However actions have consequences. Some good, some ill, none equal.

I understand your rant but given the complexities of PC culture and an attempt to now break free of it, quite the conundrum.

I hate PC culture

it puts ignorant people into hiding

I'm a big fan of free speech and believe it should encompass everything and that people should be free to show their ignorance so that they can be educated in the error of their ways.

All PC culture does is sweep ignorance under the figurative rug without actually addressing the problems

Most pointless, toxic, ignorant bait post I've ever read on ATS.
Courtney Love rants better, and more coherently.

I don't disagree with your stance. However there are others that do. Especially younger generations that had it ingrained.

When knowledge is universally valued again, free speech will be more prevalent.

I never found Kraut to be offensive in any way. Besides who cares. It takes a lot more to really piss me off. F#ck i use whatever language and vulgarity i want f#ck the PC crowd. Like i stated many times it infested people like a virus and it's gotten to a point where they don't apply any logic to their thinking. Yeah good luck with that. F#cking morons.

I can call a native American an Indian?

Just some background. When they first 'discovered' the North American continent they thought they had found another route to India, thats why they called the natives they encountered Indians. The term stuck, still misued today. There were many indigenous native peoples here before anyone from Middle Europe arrived.

They killed most all of them off, destroying their nations, infrastructure and untold numbers of peoples.

Well Indian isn't tech. correct. Native Americans, First Nations, Aboriginal or Indigenous peoples, though are fine. Kind of the same way "Eskimo" isn't exactly pc, up in Alaska, they might refer to each-other as Iñupiat- plural or Iñupiaq- singular.....

Indians was mainly a thing because good ol Chris Columbus thought he had made his way to the Indian ocean when he landed in America, and incorrectly labeled the people.



Any how you can say whatever you like, it's your birthright- but I can't control what others will think of you should they hear and or read it.

I can call anybody anything I want to.

If they act like it and deserve it, so what.

Screw political correctness , I do what the hell I want, because I'm an old dude and I have earned it.

Feelings get hurt and all butt hurt, they make a cream for that and provide a safe place for you.

And I was being nice in this post. LOL !

There is no main point or specific message; one of the pitfalls of trying to be more dynamic than necessary.

Okay, your other Facebook quality threads are (what ever) but this, what the heck?

Did someone lose their Archie Bunker wannabe grampa or what? *I do know about that despite being younger

Don't be silly, that isn't possible. You cannot have an IQ in the negative numbers.

I can call a 'n-word' black?

I think you got this one the wrong way around?
I notice that when I quote your post that in the box it doesn't say n word either.
Do people like you read the T&C's?
