"Problem today is you can't speak your mind without offending someone."
|Think the final statement is politically correct? |
Actually, the whole rewrite is politically incorrect.
For some younger people - which is about all of the millennials - and some older people - which is about all the far right conservatives - the world began the day they were born or about twenty-five years ago. Political correctness is a problem created today because decades of liberal policies brainwashed our parents' and grandparents' generations to be polite and respectful. That's just plain wrong and nothing is getting done to move the current generation forward because of all this politeness.
Funny thing is the stale argument of political correctness goes back at least forty years, long before the millennials were born and long before the far right conservatives got an idea that maybe their voice was worth hearing.
Let's back track forty years to 1975 when a top comedian of the day aired a sketch of political correctness gone awry. What Carol Burnett acted out then is exactly what those who have no substance to provide to a debate whine about today.
Lesson to be learned? I suspect forty years from now we'll still be whining about political correctness. And comedians will still be having fun with the nonsense.
