WASHINGTON (The Barbed Wire) – There was celebrating in the streets yesterday as President Obama unknowingly ended political correctness, once and for all. In his defense for personally not using the term “radical Islam,” the president undercut what had been his most powerful weapon for his entire political life.
Political correctness has been a curse on American life for the last 40 years or so, a cancer thrust upon society by the hippies of the 1960’s, after which many worshipers of the religion infiltrated America’s colleges and universities, using them as a Petri dish where the cancer could grow.
In responding to the Orlando Pulse nightclub massacre, Obama said, “There’s no magic to the phrase ‘radical Islam.’ It’s a political talking point. It’s not a strategy.” He followed that point by saying, “Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away. This is a political distraction.”
THANK YOU! President Obama finally made the point that conservatives have been making for decades. Calling something by another name does not change anything, doesn’t make it go away, is not a strategy, and is nothing more than a political distraction.
Here is a list of other political distractions:
- Using the term ISIL instead of ISIS
- Climate change instead of global warming (both are a joke anyway)
- Homeless person instead of Bum
- Economically disadvantaged area instead of Ghetto
- Undocumented immigrants instead of Illegal Aliens
- Gender re-assignment instead of Sex Change
- Feminist instead of Angry, Bitter Lesbian
- Reality challenged instead of Obama
You get the point. The list could go on and on and on. Using any of these supposed “correct” terms aimed at replacing a former term because it may cause butthurt in some individuals doesn’t change the reality, threat, or problem.
So, President Obama has either freed us from the chains and shackles of political correctness or he has to admit that he was wrong – it would be the first time – for the last four or five years and acknowledge that RADICAL ISLAM is our sworn enemy.
He can’t have it both ways, as much as he’d like to.
