Enough PC Garbage: Ahem, I
Enough PC Garbage: Ahem, I think the words oriental, niggardly, and minority are fine to use. Furthermore, I use the term “black” and not “African-American”, or anything-American for that matter. I think it’s fine to call a bunch of noisy idiots raising a ruckus in front of your apartment building “Water Buffaloes”. I don’t think there was anything wrong with the Willie Horton commercial and I think Affirmative Action is just as repulsive and wrong as Jim Crow laws were.
I want the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance and I do think we should amend the Constitution to make burning the flag in protest illegal. I like the Braves and the Redskins as well as the Vikings, the Fighting Irish, the Celtics, and even the Fighting Whites. I don’t think “Heather Has Two Mommies” belongs in school and we’d be better off using our time to teach kids about “dead white guys” like Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Hamilton, and Washington instead. When I was a kid I liked to play Cowboys and Indians, tag, & dodgeball and I see nothing wrong with parents teaching kids how to shoot a gun or even spanking their kids when need be. I’m opposed to environmental sexual harassment laws that make it a crime to have a swimsuit calendar at work as well as hate crime legislation that assumes shooting someone in the head because you’re prejudiced is worse than shooting someone in the head to take their wallet. I think the Boy Scouts and 4H do good work for kids and the bureaucrats should leave them alone. I don’t think we should be using tax dollars to provide free porn in libraries or to support art that depicts Jesus submerged in urine because if people like that sort of thing, they should pay for it out of their own pockets.
Also, if you want to become a US citizen, you should get a Visa, learn to speak English, and drop your old culture like a hot potato when you get here. If the country you came from was so great, you would have never left to join our “melting pot” to begin with. Forget the “salad bowls” the politically correct say we need, I’ve seen enough of those in countries like Afghanistan and Bosnia to know that it’s not what we want here.
In short, political correctness is garbage and if Bill Maher had really been as “Politically Incorrect” as his show’s name would suggest, then maybe he’d still have a job.
Thanks to Protein Wisdom for the inspiration.
**Update** I’ve added a bit to this piece and made a few changes and it’s going to go up tonight as my weekly editorial. Also, some left-wing page called Team Murder really hated this article. If you want to know what the “Team Murder” writing style is like, imagine how the guys from Warblogger Watch would write after getting stoned and listening to Rage Against The Machine for 48 straight hours without sleep. Make sure to check out the comments section to see an email someone who claims to be a teacher (this lady could be a poster child for school vouchers) sent me. Also, make sure to check out the delightful “Pledge Argument” post.
