James O’Brien Challenges on Political Correctness

This is diamond. It’s about time that someone challenged that old canard “political correctness” as in “political correctness gone mad!” It’s so often used as a pejorative term that I get wound up because the people using it really don’t know what they mean by it. This is because it comes to signify by implication “someone with whom or something with which I disagree with that has a liberal dimension”. Or, “I would like to offend someone, and other people don’t like me offending them, so I will attack their defensive position and thus generate sympathy for my attempts to offend someone”.

Anyway, over to good old James O’Brien.
