HAS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS CAUSED THE DOWNFALL OF AMERICA?

(Apr. 8, 2011) — Have you noticed how easily people get offended these days? I tell you, it seems as if anything and everything get people riled up over nothing. Take, for instance, calling an Easter Egg Hunt an Egg Hunt. “Mommy, why are people looking for colored eggs?” “Shhh! Don’t say ‘colored;’ you might upset someone. And to answer your question, I’m not allowed to tell you about the symbolism of birth, of being made anew, or anything that may even reek of Christianity.”
But I will tell you that not too long ago, people wouldn’t be afraid of calling something by its name. The Egg Hunt used to be called an Easter Egg Hunt. Spring break used to be called Easter vacation. And Christmas? Well, Christmas used to be a very special time for everyone, from one to ninety-two, but nowadays you can’t even hint at the religious aspect of winter vacation. But why? What happened?
Fear, that’s what happened. Here’s an example. Towns used to decorate a Christmas tree and have a nativity scene until some atheist whined that they didn’t get to have their very own Non-Christmas tree and their very own Non-Nativity scene. So the end result is that everyone got pablum: a watered-down version of Christmas that, had you just awakened from a coma, you’d think it was a brand new holiday celebrating …nothing. Yes, welcome to Zilchville, U.S.A., where the brain-dead compete with news anchors and politicians on who can be the most mundane, boring, and insignificant humans around.
We must respect the minority, so the saying goes. But is that true? Were not the American Indians a minority and, if so, how much respect have they received since, say, 1492? I’ll tell you, not much. So if America didn’t respect its native-born, in a manner of speaking, why in the blazes is America respecting anything whatsoever to do with Muslims, a people who say daily that they would really enjoy beheading each and every one of us? They also say they want to make Americans bow to Sharia Law and that they want the flag of Islam flying over the White House.
Wait a minute, what about offending me? Don’t I count? I can get offended too, you know. Of course, when I really got offended I used to back off and calm down but my days of taking a deep breath are numbered, and not because I’m a day older, but because my “offensive fuse” has been shortened since, well, there’s a good question. Remember John McCain saying, “Oh, I apologize for the announcer saying Barrack HUSSEIN Obama”? Maybe then. Maybe when Clinton gave China “Most Favored Nation” trade status. Maybe when Carter met with the Palestinian (No Jew Between Me and the Sea) Muslim murderers (PLO). Maybe all of the above.
And, then again, maybe when the United States put a Muslim in the White House. Yes, that, without a doubt, shortened my fuse. If anyone ever had any doubt that the Democratic Party and the Republican Party aren’t one and the same, their mutual cover-up of Obama’s birth certificate should prove it to you. Now I am offended, so I propose starting our very own jihad; why not? The Muslims have theirs and no one seems to be offended.
That’s right, our very own jihad where we give what our enemies deserve. Our very own enemy list…besides all Muslims, let’s add everyone who had a part in putting and keeping Obama in office. That’s right, an American version of jihad: JOIN IN HALTING AMERICA’S DESTRUCTION.
