    There’s this ongoing narrative that ‘PC’ is strictly an invention of the Left.

    Was it not the Right that gave is “Enhanced interrogation interview techniques”, which is really just torture?
    “Pro-family” instead of anti-gay?
    “Private military contractor” instead of mercenary?
    “Teach the controversy” as a catchphrase that really just refers to science-denial?
    “Right to work laws” instead of anti-union?
    Having the nerve to relax anti-pollution laws and call it the “Clean Air Act”?

    I could go on and on.

    “I could go on and on” and in doing so you would be engaging in the logical fallacy of “begging the question”. You just shot yourself down. Nice work.

    I don’t think you understand what “begging the question” means. It certainly doesn’t apply to what I said here.

    I have always understood from my logic classes that “begging the question” is essentially circular logic. The claim assumes the premise is true. I found an example online: Paranormal activity is real (claim) because I have had an experience that can only be described as paranormal activity (premise).

    I think the problem is that when you categorize “people that I disagreed with at school” as “an unthinking, shouting shrieking annoying thoughtless ill-informed intolerant herd mass that will tolerate no dissent” it becomes more difficult to believe your claim that you ARE a “better, wiser person” than the people who were insulting you?
