  • The Definition of Political Correctness

    Harry Truman, Douglas MacArther
    What is meant by the modern term referred to as ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’.. The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri. The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and Gen Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945.. The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war - not a word has been added or deleted! I did have to modify one word so it would be allowed on these boards.

    A Students for Trump event at Portland State University was greeted with hostility Saturday when campus police officers tried to kick Trump’s supporters to the curb while protesters reacted hysterically to chants of “USA! USA!” Students for Trump began the event by erecting a wall on campus but campus security attempted to force the students to leave on the grounds that the wall was a “structure” rather than a “sign,” and thus violated university policies. However, the students were ultimately allowed to remain on campus but were harshly ridiculed by their peers, who called them “pathetic,” “idiot,” and members of...

    U.S. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch yesterday knocked President Obama’s “politically correct” reluctance to use the term “Islamic extremists” — and said the U.S. should have struck back at ISIS with a heavy hand immediately after the Orlando massacre. “I would have liked to have seen a pronounced effort right after Orlando. They called for this. They struck American citizens and we should have a show of force to send a message,” Lynch told Boston Herald Radio.

    The Department of Justice is scrubbing references of radical Islamic beliefs from the transcripts of calls Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen made to police during his massacre, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday. A partial transcript of the conversations between authorities and Mateen, who killed 49 and wounded 53 in the June 12 attack at a Florida gay nightclub, is set to be released on Monday. But Lynch, who appeared on numerous Sunday talk shows, said the transcripts will not include Mateen's oath of loyalty to ISIS or any other religious justification for the attack.

    As politically correct and in total denial as President Obama is on the subject of taking the fight to ISIS, he has a lot of company these days from his fellow Americans. The primary governmental organization responsible for our homeland security issues orders for its employees not use the terms Jihad or Sharia. The Federal Bureau of Investigation can’t conduct surveillance on mosques over concerns of offending Muslims. The President and members of Congress green light Syrians into the country as ISIS blazes a trail of terror across the globe. Muslim migrants storm the country like a horde blasting through...

    We are at war. The President may not know it or want to believe it, but anyone with half a brain is quite aware that ISIS wants to destroy us and institute a caliphate across the globe based on its twisted, evil ideology. President Obama is not only philosophically against fighting this war, but he’s also scared to face the enemy. His fear causes him to create a myriad of excuses why he can’t take the helm and crucify ISIS. The war with ISIS, Mr. President is not a gun control issue or a LGBT issue or some cry for...

It also recommended that WSU drop its university-wide requirement in mathematics, an idea that was carried out on June 13. “We are proposing the creation of specific ‘Diversity’ courses, with students required to take one course in this designation,” said a document from the General Education Reform Committee, which is recalibrating what the university will expect from all students who earn a degree from the state university. It released the proposal in May.

The report instructs the DHS not to use any language that might be “disrespectful” to Muslims, including (but not limited to) the words “jihad,” “sharia” and “takfir.”The report was crafted by an HSAC subcommittee that Secretary Johnson created in November 2015.

    The worst mass shooting in U.S. history is raising new questions about the safety of the homeland and shaking up the race for the White House. Shocking revelations that the shooter had been previously investigated by the FBI more than have many asking whether the incident could have been prevented. At least 50 people were killed and 53 were wounded or injured in the shootings early Sunday morning. The shooter, Omar Mateen, pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) before attacking Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, with an assault rifle and a handgun. The FBI...

Florida Today reports: A former Fort Pierce police officer who once worked with 29-year-old Omar Mateen, the assailant in an Orlando nightclub shooting that left at least 50 dead, said he was “unhinged and unstable.”

That's “roughly two per cent below earlier projections as conditions have been weaker than expected.” The firm names “weak currencies, depressed commodity prices, political uncertainty, and delayed projects” as the weaker conditions impacting sales. Windows 10 isn't helping matters either, because lots of people are availing themselves of free Windows 10 upgrades rather than buying a new PC.

Her offense was posting a video news report she created for Gatestone that discussed an almost 1,500% increase in rapes in Sweden. Ms. Carlqvist suggests the increase of rapes may be attributable to the mass influx of immigrants coming mainly from Muslim countries such as Iraq, Syria and Somalia. Gatestone Institute is a non-partisan; not-for-profit international policy think tank run by former UN Ambassador John Bolton. Carlqvist's video (embedded below) is...

Navy and Marine Corps officials have said that all titles, including frequently used ones such as seaman and rifleman, are under a review that began in January at Mabus' request. The move comes as all previously closed job titles across the Defense Department opened to women.

It passed the House easily in February. “The term ‘Oriental’ has no place in federal law and...

Petraeus was the man who led the surge, who took command of US forces in Afghanistan, who later became the Director of the CIA. In an era searching for real military leadership, Petraeus seemed just what the doctor ordered. Or, was he? His reputation was tarnished by an affair with his biographer and his carelessness which allowed her access to his Top...

No complaint is too petty for these civil servants that have invented their own lifetime jobs....

    A fit of high dudgeon has gripped many of my Republican friends, ex-friends, and soon-to-be-ex-friends now that Donald Trump has all but won the Republican nomination. My advice to them: get over it. This presidential race will look like Alien vs. Predator. I'm for Predator, without a second's hesitation, because he's our Predator. For all his faults Donald Trump would be (and I'm confident will be) an incomparably better president. I'm not pleased about the outcome of the primaries. I supported Ted Cruz and helped out in his campaign with economic research and news analysis. Yes, Trump is a...

    New York Bars Must Serve Pregnant Women Policymakers in New York have released new guidance which compels bartenders to serve pregnant women alcohol if they ask for it. Published on Friday 6 May by mayor Bill de Blasio and human rights commissioner Carmelyn Malalis, the document aims to precisely state what actions constitute discrimination on the grounds of pregnancy. The purpose of the document is to ensure that pregnant women are not discriminated against by employers and are provided a safe environment to work in. The guidelines read: “Judgments and stereotypes about how pregnant individuals should behave, their physical capabilities...

    The University of Minnesota’s School of Public Health was a lot less healthy this week. In celebration of “International No Diet Day,” the school of public health, together with the University of Minnesota’s School of Social Work and its College of Food and Agriculture, invited Virgie Tovar, a self-proclaimed “fat activist,” to instruct America’s future nutritionists, dietitians and social workers on the finer points of “fat oppression.”

    Vanity ^ | 6 May 2016 | Me
    So here is the situation. About a year ago, I was convinced I would lose my job due to a confrontation with the company HR manager (a/k/a "The Commissar") over doing something non-PC which he made into a BFD. But today, I am still here and he is retiring next week. We are even having a "We're Glad You are Leaving Party." So there is a card we are all being asked to sign with a short message (preferably 6 words or less). I am trying to keep it classy even though a lot of my co-workers are not. I...

    For a film to break records before its release is usually a good sign. But such records tend to be for advance ticket sales or most trailer views – they do not tend to register unusually high levels of online dissatisfaction. When the first look at footage from Paul Feig’s female-fronted Ghostbusters reboot debuted in March, the reaction encompassed outrage not only that the beloved comedy was being remade, but that the lead characters’ genders would be altered.

    When it was announced that Harriet Tubman would displace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, there were two sets of dramatically different reactions among Republicans on social media. One group passed around links to a National Review piece celebrating the decision to “tell the story of a deeply-religious, gun-toting Republican who fought for freedom in defiance of the laws of a government that refused to recognize her rights.”
