The title to this article is a direct quote from one of my heroes, the late, great Charlton Heston (1923-2008). Before delving into this vexing subject, let me make the observation that “political correctness” in the U.S. is no longer “mannerly”, and is often identified with mob violence, attacks on free speech, destruction of property, and a host of other unlawful or anti-social actions increasingly associated with both the slavish supporters of The New Bolshevik Party (formerly Democrats) and the truly brain damaged and violent fascist adherents of the FASCIST MOB that incorrectly calls itself “Anti-Fascist”, or ANTIFA, a despicable group of leftist misfits, druggies, malcontents, and losers financed by that sinister funder of fascism, George Soros, and other vastly wealthy and treasonous gnomes of international finance!Whether they wear the old “black shirts” of Mussolini’s original 1920’s Fascists in Italy, or the “brown shirts” of the Nazi Fascists in Hitler’s 1930’s Germany, THEY ARE STILL THE SAME THING: FAR LEFT WING proponents of intimidation, denial of free speech, violence, property destruction, racism, and big and powerful government! That is what “fascists” are today, and it’s what they’ve always been, regardless of how they try to camouflage themselves!
Recently I received a Christmas card from our daughter, because she knew that her Mom and I would get a “kick” out of it. We surely did. Here, direct from that American Greeting Co.’s card are the “Top Ten Politically Correct Christmas Carols”. Brain damaged liberal progressives country-wide are undoubtedly shouting their “approvals” of this “sensitively” designed card, so that finally we can begin to really celebrate the beginning of “The Winter Holidays” without having to endure the insensitive, bigoted, and especially—religious-- words of songs that were written only to “separate” us from our fellow. I’m certain you’ll recall the tunes to these new p/c versions that undoubtedly will be non-offensive to all leftist moonbats, that will engender kind thoughts of togetherness, racial and non-sexist harmony, and non-religious “inclusiveness”. After all, what could be more culturally disuniting than singing songs about the questionable birth in a squalid stable of a “special baby” long ago, said birth announced by fictitious Angels to a group of oppressed animal herders who were forced to watch over their flocks all night in bad weather in order to keep them from being stolen or eaten by wild animals that the Roman government did nothing to control? Anyway, here are the “official” new words to the old “offensive” songs:
- “Oh Christmas Tree” becomes, “Oh Holiday Tree”
- “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” becomes, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Day of Winter"
- “Frosty the Snowman” becomes, “Frosty the Snowperson"
- “Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire” becomes, “Chestnuts Roasting on a Safely Contained, Continuously Monitored, Eco-friendly, Nontoxic Outdoor Fire (For Which I Do Have a Permit)”
- “God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen” becomes, “Higher Power Rest Ye, Merry Gentlepeople”
- “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer” becomes, “Grandma Allegedly Got Run Over By an Unidentified Non-Human Perpetrator”
- “Deck the Halls With Boughs of Holly” becomes, “Deck the Halls With Boughs of Unendangered Foliage”
- “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” becomes, “Hark: The Herald Mythical Winged Creatures Sing”
- “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” becomes, “I Saw Mommy Greeting Father Winter With a Purely Platonic Expression of Inoffensive Mutual Affection”
- “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” becomes, “I’ll Be Home For a Short Period of Time in December"
Even though these are humorous re-renderings of classic Christmas songs, we all should realize how pernicious the deadly virus of “politically correct speech” has become within American society, and especially within the realm of politics. What, exactly, is the dictionary definition of the term, “political correctness”? According to Webster’s, it means, “Conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be eliminated.” George MacDonald wrote that: “The two pillars of ‘political correctness’ are willful ignorance and a steadfast refusal to face the truth”. The blog thetwentyishconservative.com recently contributed more understanding by claiming: “Truth: The new hate speech! Political correctness is destroying the very fabric of society. Never before in history have people been so afraid to stand up against absurdity for fear of being labeled a racist, a homophobe, or a bigot. Get rid of political correctness. Let’s get people talking again!”
“Truth” seems to increasingly be a victim of this disease of ‘political correctness’, and it’s cousin, “history”, seems to be another casualty of the urge of those brain damaged arbiters of what is and what is not acceptable to rewrite history and trash our cultural mores, particularly when we look at historical figures like our Founding Fathers, some of whom—gasp, gasp—owned slaves, a fact that p/c moonbats have declared to be sufficient cause to negate and attack the truly unique institutions that, despite their human shortcomings, they left to the future—to us. Even President Woodrow Wilson, that once honored “idol” of the socialist left because of all he did to advance the cause of progressivism during the early part of the 20th century, must now be purged because he had the temerity to show that old silent film, “Birth of a Nation”, in the White House to his friends and cabinet members while he was President; and even to often proclaim his racist tendencies.
It’s obvious that the “totalitarian impulse” to force others to think, act, dress, behave, believe, write, preach, and teach their way, which has cursed mankind (or is it ‘peoplekind’?) from the beginning, is flourishing in 21st century America, and that, as Jonathan Chait pointed out in “New York Magazine” a few years ago, “The tribunes of political correctness are carrying out the ideals of a movement that regards the delegitimization of dissent as a FIRST ORDER GOAL.” That indeed is the plan of the brain damaged cretins of the “left” in our country, as they seek to deconstruct everything that Christians and Patriots and just plain ordinary Americans, in spite of all of their shortcomings and failures before God and their fellow men, have built in this culture ever since the early 17th century.
It should also be obvious to all right-thinking Americans that this delegitimization of dissent—this urge to destroy our venerable constitutional liberties and force us into a cesspool of socialist mediocrity and leftwing group think, is becoming a serious and virulent problem all over our country, and that the push for a freedom and soul-destroying kakistocracy (“A system of government which is run by the worst, or least qualified, or the most unscrupulous citizens”) is the actual goal, a system that negates human liberty, ostensibly run by those incompetents of the left, but really controlled by the gnomes of international finance—those ultra-wealthy worshippers of power and control who hide in the shadows and “pull the strings” of the societies they have corrupted—people like Soros, Steyer, and Bloomberg!
This fear of dissent by the denizens who proclaim the glories of socialism and group think is making daily life increasingly difficult for those who consider themselves to be constitutional conservatives—truth seekers who wish to PRESERVE the good in our venerable system. If we wish to speak publically or in cyber space to, for example, decry Muslim extremism, violence, and hate, we are figuratively “tarred and feathered” by those who take offense over our attempts to disseminate the truth about Allah’s 7th Century Neanderthals. Increasingly, Americans are being “warned”—under the threat of retribution by their own government—their employers—their friends and families—their social media peers—and various “cyber bullies” (Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)-- that it is no longer acceptable for American patriots and conservatives to disparage or question the “intentions” of the hordes of ignorant and hate-filled Muslim “refugees” who have been and still are INVADING various European countries (a few Euro countries have wisely refused to accept any of the so-called Muslim refugees), and who are still in the process of invading Canada and the United States. Well, I for one will NEVER stop trying to tell the truth about the great damage being done by most of these invading and unwanted hordes. Sadly, Muslim infestation is being welcomed by incredibly stupid Canadians and Americans with open arms, as these 7th Century Primitives import their Islamic religious hatred, their filth, their demands for Sharia law, their anti-Semitism, their demands to be supported financially, and their Qua’ran mandated VIOLENCE that a quarter (or more) of ALL Muslims profess to find acceptable if it advances the cause of “Allah”, the ancient “Moon God”!
Political Correctness strikes out at those of us who dare to open our mouths and protest all of the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS from south of our border and from Muslim and African cesspools, and we are castigated for our “un-Christian attitudes” when we protest, with good reason, the importing of this PLAGUE onto our shores. Who really cares, say those who secretly despise our Western and Americanist Culture, if within two or three generations the old concept of the “melting pot”, with its traditional mostly European originated citizenry is totally purged by the hordes of non-European, relatively non-educated seekers after America’s “free lunch”, and who will be depended upon to reliably vote SOCIALIST (Democrat) forever?
Despite the efforts of President Trump and others to try to make immigration both restricted and selective, the “urge to merge” with everyone from the mostly disgusting, ignorant, tyrannical, violent, and disease infested world goes on, aided and abetted by the PHONY AMERICANS and PRETEND PATRIOTS of both parties, as they close their eyes to the imminent destruction of our special historic and unique culture, holding each other’s hands and singing “Kumbaya” as our once great “ship of state” slips beneath the waves of history, condemned by the “icebergs” of the multiple CURSES of political correctness, racist demagoguery, and the purposely induced ignorance of its passengers, all of which is being increasingly aided and abetted by the increasingly socialist/progressive/Marxist zombies of The New Bolshevik Party (formerly called Democrats).
Well, my fellow Christians and Americans, it’s almost Christmas. May we all put aside our political differences, at least for this blessed season. May we have a WORSHIPFUL & CHRIST-HONORING time of celebrating the one who is THE reason for the season, and I wish all of you a NON-POLITICALLY CORRECT and Happy New Year!
