Political Correctness

"We have been so brainwashed about what's politically correct, that we forget about what's morally correct." These words struck me as I read Armstrong Williams article at Townhall.com. Much is written about not using the word terrorist and using some less offensive terminology to describe those who plot and perform large scale murder hoping to frighten us and rob us of our will to fight for our freedoms. We pussy foot around naming Islam gone wrong as the underlying problem. We do not want any racial profiling, in fact, we would be so politically correct and afraid of offending a group that we almost avoid them when doing random searches. The media writes much about how the Muslim community in Britain is reacting in fear that their groups of people will be scrutinized and considered as possible suspects.

I keep wondering where the feminist groups stand. Is there anything other than the so called abortion rights on their collective minds. Is recreational sex without consequences the most important agenda in their world? Do they have any idea of what it would be like to live under the radical Islamist view of a woman's place in this world? Could they not take any time out of their busy schedules to champion the basic human rights of women in Muslim countries? Why was there no celebration within these groups when the Afghani and Iraqi women got an opportunity to vote or when female children in Afghanistan were permitted to be educated?

It appears it is politically correct to organize marches and protests to protect the 'right' to kill the unborn but not to march or protest against the very real tragedies facing Muslim females living under the threat of honor killing, lack of opportunities for education, and being chattel for the Muslim males.

  1. All I can say is Amen! I am so proud that Afghanistan now has their first Governor, EVER! I am so happy that the children of both sexes are being educated. It may be in separate schools, but so what? I believe that is better, anyway!

    I am so proud of the Iraqi women who are taking the bull by the horns and helping the Iraqi economy. I am also very proud of the women of Iran who are willing to go to prison, just because they protested peacefully to free their loving family members.

    I was also very happy when, with no pressure, Kuwait gave women the right to vote!

    Yes. These women have come a long way. Too bad the Left never noticed.

  3. The Left did not mention these successes because they occurred as a byproduct of the actions of a certain Republican President who shall remain nameless in the interest of Political Correctness. God knows, I would not want to offend anyone by mentioning his name outloud. [hint: Great "W" Satan]
