The notion of political correctness came into use among Communists in the 1930s as a semi-humorous reminder that the party’s interest is to be treated as a reality that ranks above reality itself, according to a study by Boston University professor emeritus, Angelo M. Codevilla.
He goes on to explain that political correctness isn’t about any of the ideas it imposes, it’s about control.
Things like resistance to gay marriage and bathroom choice are treated as psychopathology. This alienates a large portion of Americans who are accustomed to freedom of thought and accounts for a great deal of President-elect Donald Trump’s appeal to those on one side of the political-societal divide and the loathing of those on the other side.
The left has become so reliant on political correctness as a replacement for critical thinking they make choices by emotion and feelings. They’ve lost the ability to offer logical arguments and resort to name calling, demonstrations and retreating to safe places.
President elect Trump and his supporters are in the enviable position of being called names instead of being proven wrong.
