This comes from A.M. Daniels, a British physician and political writer who usually goes by the pen name of Theodore Dalrymple. Daniels spent a lifetime working in the National Health Service in Great Britain and is one of the more entertaining critics of the Left you’ll read.
“Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
Spot on, we think.
What has the last eight years been other than an entire society, the greatest in the history of the world, standing idly in silence while communist propaganda and its attendant obvious lies are fed down our throats in single file?
From the Reset Button to leading from behind to “If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon” to “It was the video” to “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” we have been propagandized with the most outrageously evil falsehoods ever fed to us, and as a nation we are indeed humiliated. Go anywhere and talk to nearly anyone, and you’ll hear evidence.
And people are fed up. They’re tired of listening to excuses for failure. They’re tired of a country which sucks. And they’re tired of having their lives manipulated by evil people for political purposes.
