Political Correctness versus Freedom

Am I alone, or do others see Political Correctness destroying the very freedoms our forefathers worked for us to have?

But Political Correctness remains just what it was intended to be: a sophisticated and dangerous form of censorship and oppression, imposed upon the citizenry with the ultimate goal of manipulating, brainwashing and destroying our society.

There seems to be a growing need of those supporting PC to make laws to restrict almost everything we hold dear. We are suppose to have freedom of speech, but with PC, it has eroded so much that we now have to police our speech so not to offend anyone or chance a lawsuit against us.
It is changing the American society from within, and the citizens of this nation are increasingly censoring themselves and losing their freedom of speech out of fear of Political Correctness repression.

It is the nature of Western Civilization to be civilized – respectful of others and concerned with correcting injustices. We don't need Political Correctness to make us think we are not civilized on our own and must have our thoughts and words restricted.

The schools have adopted a 'no tolerance' policy. Children are put in detention, suspended, or maybe even expelled for minor reasons that could have been taken care of by school administration. But, due to PC, the children have to bear the results of an over-zealous society that wants to appease everyone and every religion this side of heaven!

Also, it's coming to the church you attend: just watch for it.There is a chance your pastor will not be able to preach against things such as homosexuality or gay marriages. Although the Bible teaches against these things, again, the appeasement crowd is hurrying to get it outlawed. It is a an attempt to pacify those who don't believe the way you do at the expense of the principle of truth of the Word.

Freedom has eroded in our country. And, it is going to get worse. There will be no backpeddling. It seems that most assume to appease the enemy is to make him less likely to strike out. We should know better by now. While we are held responsible for things we do or say, others outside of Christianity are not. In 2001, school children found that, while they were being told there could be no display of anything pertaining to Christmas, a middle school student in Texas was able to show a video of her muslim religion. In two schools in California, during 2002, they were having students to attend a 3 week course on Islam and pretend to be warriors for Islam.
This arbitrary double standard was applied in the name of Political Correctness following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Political Correctness has become pandemic. If we don't come against it, we will be come a totalitarian country and the government will rule every aspect of our lives. They have invaded them enough already. If we want to continue to be free, our freedom of speech must be preserved. It is slowly slipping away.

That means you go to your local voting places and vote for the candidate you believe will most represent your views, and then hold his hands to the fire (i.e., telephone calls, emails, and faxes which remind him why he was elected!).
Right now, we have too many lifers in there who have too much to do with special interests groups and will do anything to get elected.

And the cause of PC is guarded jealousy by the lawyer class of our society, a class which has ensured that it has embedded itself in the very fabric of our lives. They goad on anyone who feels offended.

In the case of offenses, that have not caused any monetary harm, are freely forwarded in a court system that then awards large settlements for what, when it comes right down to it, are hurt feelings (speaking more of the PC control of words used that offend).

I see people using the courts, via lawyers, taking on what civil society used to handle itself, by meeting and talking it out. The lawyers have figured out how to make this activity "commisionable" for their profession, and then an "need" for larger government to set up and maintain the courts, at taxpayer expense.

I connect the element of greed to the situation, and those championing this (identified above) are more concerned about making a buck, than getting society on track.

It's not just you.

I agree with everything you have said. Lots of these cases would never see the light of day if we had less zealous lawyers who only saw money in a case. And, there would be less waiting time for court cases, if they didn't have all the petty cases to muddle through.

No need to blame it on lawyers, they are just using the "laws" that have been passed by the PC political governors and senators we have elected, who would do anything to get in office. People nowadays in America want to be slaves, thank the media, they are to blame for that. Thank god for the internet! There's a sucker born everyday, remember that. Hang in there people.

Barbara said...

Jose, all lawyers aren't this way. But there are many out there with no scruples and will do anything for a dollar - even go to a bat for a confirmed killer, knowing all the while he was guilty, but knowing they were going to be paid handsomely.

But, you are right on about people believing the media. Some people can't read between lines and care nothing about finding out the truth for themselves.

that's why it is so very important that we learn about the candidates and go to the polls and vote on election day... and that once elected we keep them in our daily prayers that they will indeed do the job that they were elected to do and do it in the name of the Lord..
It is our responsibility to support the leaders in prayer and by holding them accountable for what they do while in office...
good post Barbara

In league with the stones...

Every September, I recall that is more than half a century (62 years) since I landed at Nagasaki with the 2nd Marine Division in the original occupation of Japan following World War II. This time every year, I have watched and listened to the light-hearted "peaceniks" and their light-headed symbolism-without-substance of ringing bells, flying pigeons, floating candles, and sonorous chanting and I recall again that "Peace is not a cause - it is an effect."

In July, 1945, my fellow 8th RCT Marines [I was a BARman] and I returned to Saipan following the successful conclusion of the Battle of Okinawa. We were issued new equipment and replacements joined each outfit in preparation for our coming amphibious assault on the home islands of Japan.

B-29 bombing had leveled the major cities of Japan, including Kobe, Osaka, Nagoya, Yokohama, Yokosuka, and Tokyo.

We were informed we would land three Marine divisions and six Army divisions, perhaps abreast, with large reserves following us in. It was estimated that it would cost half a million casualties to subdue the Japanese homeland.

In August, the A-bomb was dropped on Hiroshima but the Japanese government refused to surrender. Three days later a second A-bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki. The Imperial Japanese government finally surrendered.

Following the 1941 sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, a Japanese admiral said, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant..." Indeed, they had. Not surprisingly, the atomic bomb was produced by a free people functioning in a free environment. Not surprisingly because the creative process is a natural human choice-making process and inventiveness occurs most readily where choice-making opportunities abound. America!

Tamper with a giant, indeed! Tyrants, beware: Free men are nature's pit bulls of Liberty! The Japanese learned the hard way what tyrants of any generation should know: Never start a war with a free people - you never know what they may invent!

As a newly assigned member of a U.S. Marine intelligence section, I had a unique opportunity to visit many major cities of Japan, including Tokyo and Hiroshima, within weeks of their destruction. For a full year I observed the beaches, weapons, and troops we would have assaulted had the A-bombs not been dropped. Yes, it would have been very destructive for all, but especially for the people of Japan.

When we landed in Japan, for what came to be the finest and most humane occupation of a defeated enemy in recorded history, it was with great appreciation, thanksgiving, and praise for the atomic bomb team, including the aircrew of the Enola Gay. A half million American homes had been spared the Gold Star flag, including, I'm sure, my own.

Whenever I hear the apologists expressing guilt and shame for A-bombing and ending the war Japan had started (they ignore the cause-effect relation between Pearl Harbor and Nagasaki), I have noted that neither the effete critics nor the puff-adder politicians are among us in the assault landing-craft or the stinking rice paddies of their suggested alternative, "conventional" warfare. Stammering reluctance is obvious and continuous, but they do love to pontificate about the Rights that others, and the Bomb, have bought and preserved for them.

The vanities of ignorance and camouflaged cowardice abound as license for the assertion of virtuous "rights" purchased by the blood of others - those others who have borne the burden and physical expense of Rights whining apologists so casually and self-righteously claim.

At best, these fakers manifest a profound and cryptic ignorance of causal relations, myopic perception, and dull I.Q. At worst, there is a word and description in The Constitution defining those who love the enemy more than they love their own countrymen and their own posterity. Every Yankee Doodle Dandy knows what that word is.

In 1945, America was the only nation in the world with the Bomb and it behaved responsibly and respectfully. It remained so until two among us betrayed it to the Kremlin. Still, this American weapon system has been the prime deterrent to earth's latest model world- tyranny: Seventy years of Soviet collectivist definition, coercion, and domination of individual human beings.

The message is this: Trust Freedom. Remember, tyrants never learn. The restriction of Freedom is the limitation of human choice, and choice is the fulcrum-point of the creative process in human affairs. As earth's choicemaker, it is our human identity on nature's beautiful blue planet and the natural premise of man's free institutions, environments, and respectful relations with one another. Made in the image of our Creator, free men choose, create, and progress - or die.

Free men should not fear the moon-god-crowd oppressor nor choose any of his ways. Recall with a confident Job and a victorious David, "Know ye not that you are in league with the stones of the field?"

Thank you, Jim, for serving our country admirably. It upsets me to hear those among us who cut down the military, be he a colonel,admiral,or just an enlistee. Each of you have done your part to keep our country safe and free. And,now we have those in power who are against war (it's been going on forever), say in so many words that they are not for the soldiers - remember Reid's "the war is lost" speech? They don't realize how much they are helping the cause of terrorists when they come out publicly and speak against our military, its ability to operate effectively, and their 'send them home now' tactics. Gives the ammunition that terrorists and insurgents need in order to bide their time until the liberal brings home the troops. Then, they not only invade Iraq, but they will be on our land,as well.Well, we already know they are among us, as we speak. A scarey thought!
