Thought Police: The Bondage of Political Correctness

“He who controls the Language controls the Message”
- paraphrased from Frank Herbert’s Dune

Political Correctness, which is non-offensive language deemed acceptable by general society, has been softly killing Free Speech for over twenty years now. Black is African-American, Latino becomes Hispanic-American, and handicapped becomes Handi-Capable…White is still white and therefore still Bad. Not only are racial labels changed but also any label that could potentially offend anyone must also be renamed into a publicly safe and pasteurized version of its former self.

Political Correctness in and of itself is mental tyranny, it is “The State” dictating what language is good and what language is bad…a power that the government should never have and technically can never hold. However, it gets worse with Hate Crime legislation, laws that are designed to determine the heart of the perpetrator, regardless of the fact that ALL violent crime is Hate Crime…after all, when was the last major violent crime performed by a sane individual out of Love for the victim? If Political Correctness is the measuring stick of “hatred” then Hate Crime Legislation is the Hangman’s Noose.

The spread of Political Correctness into the political arena should not come as a shock. Political Correctness was created by the political Left and thus they control the meanings of “Racist”, “Sexist”, “Homophobe”, “Ageist”, and other damning labels that are used against anyone who disagrees with them. You don’t like Big Government? You’re a Racist. You don’t like President Obama? Racist. Disagree with Diane Feinstein on gun control? Sexist. Upset over the exponential growth of the Welfare State? You just hate poor people…and I don’t know if there is an ‘ist term for it so…you’re a Povertist!

The whole purpose behind Political Correctness is to control the thoughts behind the mouths. If I can train you not to speak it, eventually you will be trained not to think it either. If I can scare you with a label you will blatantly behave in ways to avoid that label. If I can destroy credibility with a single accusation then why would I not use Political Correctness on my Political Opposition?

PC, The Logical Extension of Goebbels

“Tell a Lie, Tell a BIG Lie, Tell it often enough, it becomes Truth.” Josef Goebbels was a dark genius, and while the deeds are to be abhored, the begrudging Truths that come from that darkness must be valued based on their veracity. Why? While Goebbels propaganda was used to butcher millions, the veracity of his PR and Marketing philosophy is proven by its bloody success. This very same technique is being used on Americans everyday in order to shut down intelligent discussion and force the logical debater to defend himself against Rhetorical Attack.

Debater 1: “I believe that the Medicare/Medicade System in our country requires a major overhaul in how it operates, who qualifies, and the amount of coverage available to the individual. It has become too difficult to manage, with too many loopholes, and overburdened with regulation that it is no longer an efficient and effective government program.”

Debater 2: “While I recognize that there are problems with Medicare, and I have a plan to fix them, the Other Guy wants to cut your health care, leave you sick and dying, and I see this as nothing less than a Racist Policy that targets the poorest minorities, women and children will be most affected, and all in order to make Big Profits for Big Insurance.”

Right There. The focus from an intellectual debate on issues degenerates into name-calling and Rhetorical speech. Obviously this is not an actual debate example but it is one that anyone who pays even the slightest attention to the News can see echoed in other “debates” on the issues. Intelligent and complete thought versus half-baked rhetorical response.

Remember when George W Bush wanted to privatize Social Security? Do you remember how the response was not, “We have better plan. We will create a separate fund and move money around the government ledgers from over-funded programs into it and then we’ll tie that into Social Security to cover the shortfall.” No, no one does because the response to Logical and Intellectual debate was “Republicans Hate Seniors” and “Conservatives want the elderly to Die” and “President Bush wants seniors to eat Cat Food” and other lovely high-brow intellectual responses.

I say this, not as a Republican, not as a Democrat, but as a True Independent. I hate both parties equally and wish that there were more parties to hate on or, preferably, no parties at all. But I digress…

I lived in Columbus, Ohio in 1996 and 1997, and during that time a new hockey stadium was in the process of securing a location to begin construction. The City Council made the decision to locate the stadium by the river, hence the name Columbus Clippers. No problem, right? Wrong, big problem. The City did not ask the local NAACP for their input on the plan, thus everyone involved were racists. I am not joking. The Columbus NAACP chapter’s Representative stated that the Mayor, City Council, and City Officials were Racist because the opinion of an unelected special-interest group was not asked during the decision making process on an Official City Issue.

Excuse me, but NAACP is an acronym for National Association for the Advancement of Colored People…exactly which part of their charter is concerned with city construction projects? Since when did the color of one’s skin have anything to do with the construction of a hockey stadium? Should the AARP have complained as well? I am certain that if the NAACP were not asked their opinion then the AARP was surely ignored as well…does Columbus also hate the Elderly?

Probably

The point of the above real-life twilight zone story is this: Notice the quickness and bluntness of the application of the Racism Label. There is no intelligent debate that follows to justify the charge, there are no egregious examples to validate it…no! The only response was to lob the R-Bomb…the one argument that Whitey can’t defend against. This is literally Salem Witch Trial behavior, so why not go all the way? Why not round ‘em up, tie ‘em to a stake, and light the fire?!? What’s the matter? Don’t you like the smell of Racists burning in the morning breeze?…Are YOU a racist?

Probably

He who controls the Language controls the Message. If I, and only I, can unquestionably levy the label of Racist against an individual or group then I, and only I, will end up controlling who the “Good Guys” and the “Bad Guys” are. If I, and only I, can unquestionably levy the label of Terrorist against an individual or group then I, and only I, will end up controlling who the “Good Guys” and the “Bad Guys” are.

He who controls the Language controls the Message, and if I control the Language and I do not like Your Language, then I can make your language disappear by making it “Illegal” or “Divisive” or “Extremist” and there is nothing that you can do to stop me…or is there?

Breaking the Chains of Tolerance

In debate, a weapon is only a weapon if your opponent accepts it as one. “Sticks and stones may break my bones but Words will never hurt me.” It is exactly the same thing. You accept the label of Rhetoric, whether it be ageist, racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe, etc. the moment that you defend against it. Rhetoric is to be answered with a snort of derision and a logical argument, or by a Grand Slam rhetorical response of your own. “yada, yada, yada, you must be Racist.” Really? You can’t offer an intelligent response of your own so you revert to Kindergarten Name Calling? What are you? A thinking man or mindless sound-byte generator? Are you unable to come up with one intelligent argument to defend your Platform, you know, that whole philosophical bag of cats that you’re laughingly running on?

It may be an aggressive response but then again, being labelled an ‘ist is a very serious attack on one’s Integrity…and all we really have in this Life is our Integrity.

You defeat the Rhetoric of Political Correctness by naming it for what it is…childish name-calling by “the intellectual elite” who are unable to manufacture a coherent thought of their own. That is how the great wizards in fantasy novels handle Demons…they speak their True-Name and banish them back to wherever demons from fantasy novels go…probably to the White House Press Corps, but I digress…

As a Free-Thinking Individual you are mentally mature, don’t go crawling in the muck with the kiddies, no! Call out the kiddies for crawling in the muck! Every single opinion that I hold I can also explain why I hold it so. There is not a single thought, idea, concept, or belief that I have that is rooted in “Superstition” or “Purposeful Ignorance.” I can give explanations and examples for every single plank in my “platform.” That does not necessarily mean that I will defend my positions every time I am challenged. I refuse to waste time on closed-minded gits, for them I quietly walk away. There is absolutely no sense wasting time, beating your head against a wall of willful ignorance as you will always walk away with a headache and a sullen loss of respect for your fellow man.

Terrorism, the Next ‘ism

The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, the Communities Against Terrorism program, the “See Something, Say Something” programs all mark innocent and innocuous philosophies and actions to terrorism. The lobbing around of a label like Racist is bad enough but to be labeled a Terrorist or Potential Terrorist because of a bumper sticker, political philosophy, or simply because you burned your thumb on the radiator of your car and decided to go pay cash for a coffee while wearing a hoodie? Being a “Terrorist” in Amerika means that you are now a viable candidate for Indefinite Detention and outright Assassination. Did Rod Sterling pass me on the stairs this morning on my way to work?

Be aware that Political Correctness 2.0 is alive and Orwellian in the good ‘ol U.S. of A. So…You’re a pro-lifer huh? Terrorist. You believe in the Bill of Rights and the Founding Fathers? Terrorist. You prepare for any potential disaster by stockpiling food, water, gasoline, and guns? Major Terrorist. You believe that the Federal Government has grown too large? Terrorist. You refuse to believe in the so-called “news” the Mainstream Media regurgitates in order to indoctrinate? Terrorist. You endorse a Third Political Party? Terrorist. You say disparaging remarks about the Government? Terrorist.

Notice the pattern? There is no debate, no logic, no reason, no intelligence involved, simply “Terrorist.” How similar is this to the early years of Political Correctness? Remember how many people lost their jobs over absolutely nothing but hype and corporate CYA policies? Even the accusation alone, no evidence, no witnesses, not even a letter from their mother, simply the accusation alone of Racism or Sexism cost people their careers. Two Words…Clarence Thomas.

While Uncle Sam cooled off some on the PC front, they have been doing something even sneakier on the Terrorism Front. It is very hard to openly label speech in America as terroristic in nature due to the reaction from Civil Liberty Groups, but it is easy to label actions, beliefs, philosophies, and Politics to be “Examples of Potential Terrorism” or outright Terrorism. This is made possible through the use of computers, Smart Phones, the Internet, the Police State, and your friendly neighbourhood Fusion Center.

Since when did Surfing Facebook for 7.5 hours a day looking for people exercising their First Amendment Rights become a valid career in American Government? Since when did it become legal to listen and record every phone conversation of every American everyday, everywhere on US soil? Since when did it become legal for the government to read and archive every single email that I send or receive and every website that I visit? This is spying. This is the Federal Government of the United States of America spying on each and every single one of its citizens. To what purpose does it serve Big Brother that he needs to know the exact sexual fetish that John Q. Voter gets off on? To what purpose does it serve Big Brother to know my particular opinion about Big Brother?

“Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free.
But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.”

- Frank Herbert, Dune

Big Brother wants to know our minds to see if we are a threat to the status quo or if we are good little slaves, comfortable in our bondage. There will soon be a day when people who openly oppose the travesty of Federal Government will be labeled as Terrorists and will be “dealt with accordingly” to use the language of our Federal “Masters.” We must first understand what the Rhetorical Weapon is and then educate those around us by living that example in order to shatter that particular weapon of Tyranny.

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission”, Mahatma Gandhi. There is true wisdom in those words. Nobody can hurt you without your permission, its a proven fact. Let the vultures circle overhead, let the media bang out their little Racism cadence on their little drums, let the fools believe whatever they wish to believe…but never can they hurt you without your permission. No weapon formed against an intelligent man can prosper.

Stand Up, Speak Out, and Talk Hard,
