Political correctness is language control. And language control is thought control. Period!
The rise of modern political correctness (PC) is a great example of the cunning way in which social engineers (such as the New World Order manipulators) operate. Political correctness is soft censorship. As George Carlin said, it is “fascism pretending to be manners.” It is intolerance disguised as tolerance, and it is running amok almost everywhere in society.
Just as George Orwell laid out so precisely in 1984, political correctness is the ‘Newspeak‘ which is threatening to limit our ability to freely speak and think, by reducing the number of available words in our vocabulary.
Yuri Bezmenov, a former Soviet KGB agent, said that “ideological subversion” would change the perception of reality of every American. He outlined how a slow brainwashing process is taking place, to change the individualistic culture of the West. This process consists of:
- Demoralization (covert, 15-50 years) (basically completed)
- Destabilization (overt, 2-5 years)
- Crisis (6 weeks)
- Violent Change and Normalization (can take years, goes on forever)
All this was implemented with the aim of making the West collectivist, and falling in line with the New World Order.
The question is: how much has it worked?
The Absurdity of Political Correctness
Whatever good intentions political correctness may have had in trying to stop homophobia, racism, sexism and discrimination of any kind, it has long passed the threshold of absurdity. Consider the following examples of what the PC crowd is trying to make people say with their “bias-free language”:
- seniors, elders, elderly => “people of advanced age”
- overweight, obese => “people of size”
- rich => “people of material wealth”
- American => US citizen
This last one is especially interesting, given that the US Government is a corporation which lays claim to the entire United States of America, whereas American denotes a natural-born individual of the Republic. The PC police also want to eliminate the following words:
male, female, father, mother, too, hard worker, third world, crazy, insane, retarded, gay, tyranny, gypped, illegal alien, fag, ghetto, raghead
… and slang phrases such as “I want to die” and “that test raped me”.
Donald Trump recently got heckled for using the term “anchor baby” by a PC journalist, who wanted him to say “the American born child of an undocumented immigrant”. What a mouthful. Funnily, enough that journalist was breaking his own PC rules, since now we’re been told that “American” is disallowed. Remember the “ban bossy” campaign? Grown adults indulging in utter stupidity. More political correctness and language control. How can you ban a word anyway? Who even has that right?
It’s not just specific words or phrases that the PC crowd want to obliterate. At some universities, they are banning entire ways of behaving. Check out these ridiculous university rules, taken from the book Choosing the Right College 2012-2013, which have moved beyond speech control into total behavior control:
- Brown University: banned any speech “making people feel angry, impotent and disenfranchised”
- Colby College: banned any speech “leading to loss of self esteem”
- Bryn Mawr College: banned “suggestive looks”
- Haverford College: banned “unwelcome flirtation”
- University of Connecticut: banned “inappropriate laughter”
- West Virginia University: banned the use of words “boyfriend” or “girlfriend” but instead told students they have to use the words “lover” or “partner”.
Look what the Grand Valley State University recommends we do to allegedly remove “bias” from our language:
Avoiding Racism and Ageism
Mention a person’s race or age only if it is relevant to the story.
Biased: A strange old man spoke to me at the grocery store.
Better: A strange man spoke to me at the grocery store.
Disability and Disease
Focus on people rather than conditions.
Biased: I met an epileptic on the bus today.
Better: I met a person with epilepsy on the bus today.
Since when is being descriptive (“old” or “epileptic”) equivalent to discriminatory? Since when is becoming less descriptive equivalent to less discriminatory? Talk about a perversion of straight and ordinary speech! Political correctness is standing reality on its head.
To this end, here is a chilling quote from 1984:
“‘You haven’t a real appreciation of Newspeak, Winston,’ he said almost sadly … ‘In your heart you’d prefer to stick to Oldspeak, with all its vagueness and its useless shades of meaning. You don’t grasp the beauty of the destruction of words. Do you know that Newspeak is the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year?’
‘Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it …’”
Anything and Everything is Potentially Offensive
All words are potentially offensive. Every word could potentially be associated with something “bad”, so every word could come under the scrutiny of the PC police. Slurs, insults and derogatory language have always existed ever since humans could speak. You can’t just annihilate them. Even the concepts of “microaggression” and “hate speech” are failed notions, trying to make “having your feelings hurt” or “getting offended” morally or legally equivalent to harassment. There is no equivalence! Stick and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me…
I encourage anyone who has even a mild interest in a free humanity with complete freedom of speech, and total freedom of thought, to resist political correctness with every fiber of your being. If you are concerned about hurting people’s feelings unnecessarily, you can always find ways to express something in the right way. In those kind of situations, what really matters is the way you say words, not what you say.
We don’t need speech police to tell us what we can and can’t say – or can and can’t think. We don’t need to go through convoluted verbal gymnastics and masturbation just to say what we think or express ourselves.
It’s time for those hiding behind “feeling offended” to grow up. Stop demanding those around you change because of your lack of maturity. Stop trying to hijack everyone’s else freedom because of your timidity. Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, offense is in the mind, attitude and reaction of the beholder.
It’s time to call a spade a spade. We need the spirit of straight talking. We need the courage to speak truth to power, not to go in the opposite direction and become afraid of saying anything. The real agenda of political correctness is to stifle objective investigation and free speech. Ultimately, it is to eliminate criticism of the NWO manipulators under the guise of stopping “hate speech” and making everything fair and equal.
