What does it mean to be politically correct?

On a forum the question was…

What does it mean to be politically correct? Why should we bother being politically correct? What’s wrong with being politically correct.


It is all very simple. It seems the politicians got you all bamboozled.

Ask yourself this question – Are you running for political office?

If yes, be politically correct so you don’t say anything that will hurt your chances of gaining power. If not, then base what you say on what is right, best you can discern it to be.

Political correctness was created by the lying rhetoricians as code so they don’t put their foot in their mouth. It has no basis in truth…it is only based only in what is politically expedient to gaining power.
