I noticed in the story Marisol posted here about a toy pig being pulled from a farm set that someone remarked, “This is political correctness gone loopy.”
That sounded familiar, so I searched the site and found eighteen stories posted here over the years that contained some variation on the idea of “political correctness gone mad,” and six more containing the phrase “political correctness run amok.” It seems as if political correctness has a general tendency to go mad, to exceed the boundaries of reason, and to outrage common sense and common decency.
And it’s true: banning toy pigs and piggy banks, building huge mosques in prisons, renaming pubs — all this and more done in order to avoid offending Muslims — it is madness embodied, and yet it is simultaneously the very embodiment of political correctness and multiculturalism: the myth that Muslims are perpetual victims, and that the West is the perpetual aggressor, and that placating Muslims in this way is rational and worthwhile.
In other words, political correctness gone loopy, political correctness gone mad, political correctness run amok, is the natural state of political correctness itself. It in itself is a form of madness, an inversion of truth and reality, and a rewriting of history.
Consequently free people must reject it in all its forms. Above all that means never accepting the Leftist/Islamic supremacist narrative in any detail — the charges of “racism” and “fascism” against decent people, the characterization of freedom defense initiatives as manifestations of “hatred,” etc. Freedom fighters can all too easily allow themselves to be put on the defensive. Don’t let that happen to you. Remember that yours is the side of truth, and the politically correct side is the party of madness. Point out their contradictions, lies, and travesties of logic. Always be ready with the facts. And never, ever, give up.
