Political Correctness: The Weapon in a Superpower’s Destruction

 From a professor’s debate lecture at North Greenville College in 1990:

[Imagine an America in the future when your children are grown up and having children of their own.  In this new America everyone is accepted.  Black people, white people, Asians, Hispanics, gay people, Christians, Muslims, Jews, men, women, and children are all accepted and equal.

Okay young men & women, what do you think of this new America? 

Do you think it’s a happy country? A utopia? 

Before you answer this, what if I said that in this new America that these things were the law of the land? You HAVE to accept all of these people and these life choices and lifestyles. If you don’t then there will be severe Social and possible legal consequences.   

Now… have your opinions on this new America changed?]

 

If you were to suddenly become the leader of a nation—say China or Russia and was tasked with but one goal— take down the United States of America.  There is no timeline or method given, only that you can never gain full power with the USA thriving and still holding the title of the lone superpower on the planet. 

What would be your strategy?  Maybe attack important landmarks or Washington DC at a time that would most assuredly take out thousands of citizens. Perhaps even the very government that keeps the lights and heat on when those things are most needed? 

I would like to tell you a true story from my own recollection. Then I will tell you why the strategy described above by itself would never work here in America. 

 

It’s 1990 and I’m a student at North Greenville College (Now, North Greenville University) in Upstate South Carolina.   

In 1990, America it’s the time of big hair and even bigger dreams.  We were far enough removed from the civil rights era that race just wasn’t a big topic of conversation. Even in South Carolina or should I say, especially in South Carolina. 

People generally just wanted to put the very real ugliness and evil of the civil war and slavery behind them.  They wanted to go about their lives;. They tried to make their dreams come true and just get by. People generally had no interest in running everyone else’s lives or thought processes.

Don’t believe me?  Watch a television show from the early 90s, or better yet listen to the leaders of the time. It was always about love for the country and how we could work together. There wasn’t this pervasive politicization of every joke or every book or cartoon. 

Things were allowed to be whatever they chose to be.  We knew that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar as Sigmund Freud once said.

America was NOT perfect in 1990.  I don’t need a list of advancements made since that time. That would be like saying that a 28 year old man acts more like an adult than when he was 11 years old; of course he does.  This is called maturing or growing up. Growing up doesn’t always equate to becoming a better person or a more happy or healthy person.

No matter our imperfections then, at that time in the world as a whole—America was generally a socially harmonious place in which to live. 

 One day in my sophomore year, my professor asked us what we thought about the term “politically correct”.  No one in class had ever heard that phrase. On the surface it sounded really good. It even said in its name that it was “correct”. To us this meant “good”.

This is when he told us what the term, as he understood it means. 

[Imagine an America in the future when your children are grown up and having children of their own.  In this new America everyone is accepted.  Black people, white people, Asians, Hispanics, gay people, Christians, Muslims, Jews, men, women, and children are all accepted and equal.

You thought that political correctness was a fairly new concept? Like maybe in the last 15 or so years?  Not from what my professor said back in 1990. He said it was a concept of social engineering that sociologists had been kicking around for years before he mentioned it to us. Then he said something that I remember thinking was a bit crazy at the time.

[If this concept is allowed to take root in our country, it could very possibly be the most devastating weapon ever used against America. It could do what the Brits, the Germans, the Japanese, and the Koreans could not. It could destroy us as a nation and as a beacon for freedom.]

America has always been tough to beat. This is simply because we had always been resolute that even in our failures we have the greatest country on earth. America was worth fighting and dying to protect. This is why a sneak attack wouldn’t have ever worked before. America is too vast and the people were more emotionally empowered. Armaments alone could not have broken us. They could’ve temporarily weakened us. They would not have totally broken us.

As devastating as it would have been if some government had managed to take out all of our leaders, they would not have been able to take on the American people.

 

Today in America, political correctness has arrived in all of its destructive glory.  Americans are told that our country is horrible. We are told that we need to scrap the constitution, the bill of rights, the electoral college and ICE.  Too many Americans would rather give up their freedoms than get offended by other people also having them. If our beliefs offend people who are devotees to PC, then our lives are worthless. We are deplorables and degenerates.

Some of us aren’t buying what they are trying to push on us. We know that America has never been nor never will be perfect. This does not mean that America was never great. We are not at our greatest point but we’re still the best country on the planet.

The time has come that we no longer play the weak-kneed witness to our country’s demise. We can’t be cowering in fear of what they will do to us when we stand up for this country.

For all of the annoying/scary things that those on the left do, the one thing you can say for them is that they don’t sit idly by. They get out and get seen and heard. Even in their ignorance, they proudly stand up and stand out. They band together.

To save America we have to band together. We have to say this ends now. They believe that they vastly outnumber us because we are silent. We need to be silent no more.
