Political correctness and the failure of American courage

Please note:  This is NOT an endorsement of a politician for president, rather it is an indictment of the American Public and especially, the media.

Donald Trump has repeatedly said that political correctness is killing America.  He is right about that.  Political correctness is the insane method liberals use to silence the opinions of those who dare to disagree with them.  Unfortunately, courage has failed most Americans.

 Few are willing to stand up to political correctness.  Now there is another case of political correctness gone wild.

 What is it?

 Former Major League pitcher Curt Schilling posted a tweet that said, “Only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?”

 Schilling was working for ESPN as an announcer.  ESPN immediately suspended Schilling.  ESPN, which is owned by Disney is a politically correct, not to mention left wing outlet. 

 Schilling deleted the tweet and offered a lame apology for the tweet. Schilling said, “I understand and accept my suspension. 100% my fault. Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part.”

 Schilling wants to save his job so he has to make the politically correct apology.  What happened to the courage to stand up for what you believe?

 If you make a statement, either you believe it or you do not.  If you have to apologize for it, why did you even say it in the first place?

 America is now dominated by political correctness and certain opinions are not allowed.  Schilling’s meme about Moslems was spot on.  Yet political correctness prevents Americans from stating the obvious.  Islam is a threat to freedom, liberty and life.

 One of the reasons Donald Trump is so popular right now is that he refuses to accept political correctness.  Yesterday, at a press conference in Iowa, Univison anchor and Democrat operative Jorge Ramos tried to interrupt Trump’s press conference and make his point. Ramos did not have a question, he just wanted to embarrass Trump. 

 Most of the politically correct politicians would have let Ramos interrupt the press conference, taken his question and fallen right into the trap.  Trump instead refused to even listen to his question and had him ejected from the press conference. 

 America is sick of political correctness and as well it should be.  Political correctness is killing liberty.  When certain topics and certain statements are off limits because they might offend people, then America has a huge problem.  Liberty often offends people, but that is far better than the alternative. 

 Political correctness is the left’s way of censoring those who don’t agree with liberalism. Curt Schilling should have stood up and said this is what I believe.  People would have rallied to him and ESPN would have had to back down due to public pressure. 

 America needs leaders who will not bow down to political correctness.  Unfortunately, most politicians these days would rather apologize and surrender than stand and fight.

 Is it any wonder Americans are rally to a politician who won’t knuckle under to political correctness?
