Is there a point where the "P.C. Police" are satisfied? Are there ever "enough" rules governing the jokes we tell, the mascots of sports teams, or the symbols on city seals? Or should we want a society as non-offensive as the American college campus? George Will, Washington Post Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, imagines what an idyllic politically correct universe would look like. Donate today to PragerU:

The Drivel Of Political Correctness Must Be Done Away With

Just because London Paris, German, Sweden and other European locations have allowed themselves to be violent targets of devout Muslims, it doesn’t mean that we in the United States has to doom ourselves to the same stupid fate.  After all, we in America have enough problems with undereducated brainwashed thugs who are wreaking much havoc in some inner city “hoods.” In fact, many children in those “hoods” now suffer from post traumatic Stress Disorder. That is the same problem that many American soldiers face after the trials of war.  Think about it.  There are so many shootings, robberies, rapes and other destructive acts in the black “hoods” of Chicago, the east side of Cleveland, most of Detroit and elsewhere that many young black Americans do not know there is a better way of life.
Sadly, many black Americans blame America and the white man for all of life’s woes. Yet it is their brutal “brothas” and “sistas” who are doing more damage to greater numbers of other black American than the KKK and all progressive bigots could dream of.  The vast number of murders, including abortion, the support of the directives of the evil democrat party are what led the black community down a primrose lane of destruction and misery is also to blame, not America in general.  In other words, refusing to seek real solutions is what makes problems larger and brings about destruction.
That is true for any situation including the United States utilizing European style political correctness instead of concrete solutions concerning national security against Islamic terrorists.  Though the United States is not in the same boat as Europe, but we are still in a precarious situation that could soon rival the foolishness of open borders Germany and Sweden.  But despite our obvious vulnerabilities, with both internal problems and national security mistakes via political correctness, we have a huge chance to turn it around in our favor.
Unfortunately, because of the two headed monster of political correctness and many Americans who now favor globalism over our Constitutional guidelines Americans have been placed in obvious danger that could easily be avoided.  During the eight long years of the Obama regime mostly Islamic jihadist male “refugees” were allowed into the country, along with record numbers of illegal immigrants.
The Middle East Christian victims of barbaric Muslim violence were not allowed passports and visas to enter into the USA.  The main reason is because they (unlike the Muslims) would most likely assimilate into American society and become a positive addition to our melting pot republic.  That is something the globalists like Obama remain opposed to.
Many believe that the United States may not be in as much danger from terrorist attacks as Paris or London because of geography, but I beg to differ.  First of all, we have already experienced numerous terrorist attacks that have been both domestic and foreign in nature.   Unfortunately, several generations of American students, including today’s snowflakes are so brainwashed that they literally equate protecting our national sovereignty from elimination with racism while battling for open borders and sharia law courts.  Such idiocy is putting our America in almost grave danger.
The United States and the west has been at odds with Islamists since 1979 when they declared war on America and the west. When it comes to dealing with terrorists, for the most part our policies of appeasement with them has only emboldened the Islamists to carry out their murderous mission.  In fact, the goal of those promoting and forcing political correct dogma upon us are foot soldiers in the evil army of those who will do anything to destroy our unique republic form of government.
We cannot afford to allow the infiltrators to continue pouring into America.  Islamic strongholds like Dearbornistan, MI, Minnesota, and elsewhere are breeding grounds for terrorism on the level experienced in Europe.  If such strategic foolishness is not abolished, then you could soon witness the tragic end to our land of the free and home of the brave.
We must see to it that the effort of those who gave their lives, so we can live in liberty is not wasted on the whim of political correctness.  God said to occupy until he returns, not roll over and allow your republic to be trashed by those who want to either convert you, kill you or commit America to a gruesome global dictatorship.  God Bless You, God Bless America and may America Bless God.

S.C. Rep. Jeff Duncan uses provocative image to underscore threat of 'radical Islamic terrorism'
By Emma Dumain,  edumain@postandcourier.com 
Jun 7,2017                                                             
WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan is known for his free-wheeling social media presence.
Local activists in his district, however, say the South Carolina Republican from Laurens this time might have gone too far.
The 3rd Congressional District's chapter of Indivisible — a national organization aimed at fighting President Donald Trump's administration — posted a screenshot shortly after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday calling attention to an image Duncan posted on Facebook.
The image depicts a white man with a noose around his neck, labeled "Europe." The other end of the rope is tied around the trunk of a much smaller tree, labeled "Islam." The man is gesturing toward the tree with a watering can, the insinuation being that Europe is nurturing, to its own fatal detriment, a religion some in the West are associating with terrorism.
"Chew on this picture a little," Duncan wrote in his own caption. "The tree is much taller today."
The Indivisible chapter on Twitter called the image a "white supremacist meme."
"Jeff I know you're not racist. Let's put that to the side," Bakari Sellers, a former Democratic member of the state Legislature and now a CNN contributor, tweeted in response. "But this is bigoted, ignorant and embarrassing."
Sellers' tweet came Wednesday afternoon, hours after the post had already been deleted from Duncan's page.
In a statement to The Post and Courier on Wednesday afternoon, Duncan was bullish.
“I've never been politically correct, nor do I care to be," Duncan said. "The truth is that Europe has allowed radical Islam to grow unchecked for too long, which has led to their current predicament. I want to keep America safe. Sometimes that means having to shove political correctness aside, being honest about the threats facing our country, and taking precautions like the ones President Trump has tried to implement.”
He did not address why he did not leave the post online, but a spokesman followed up.
The congressman “figured the media would probably choose to sensationalize something this trivial, instead of engaging in an actual dialog about how to keep America safe, which has always been his goal," the spokesman said.
The post was consistent with Duncan's record of speaking out against so-called political correctness that he and others believe risks public safety at home and abroad with the continued rise of the terrorist group known as the Islamic State.
Duncan has introduced the "Terrorist Deportation Act," which would deport any non-citizen whose name appears on a terrorist watch list. It has 12 co-sponsors, including fellow South Carolina Republican U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson of Aiken.
Duncan is a firm supporter of Trump's proposed restrictions on travel to the U.S. from certain Muslim-majority countries, the constitutionality of which is being debated in court.
"The United Kingdom has suffered from 3 Islamic terrorist attacks in the past 3 months, and has prevented an additional 5 from taking place. For the past several years, I have called for us to put political correctness aside and do what is right for the country to keep our citizens safe," Duncan wrote on Facebook on June 4. "Our borders and broken immigration system are the soft underbelly of our country. We must take the necessary and appropriate precautions to prevent the war against radical Islam from spreading to our shores."

Ban On Native American School Mascots Debated At State House
CBS Boston
June 6, 2017
BOSTON (CBS/AP) — A bill that would ban the use of Native American mascots in Massachusetts public schools headed to a public hearing at the State House on Tuesday.
The push comes after Tewksbury officials rebuffed efforts last year to change the name of their Redmen mascot.
Public forum on Tewksbury Redmen mascot held in January 2016 (WBZ-TV)
Parents appealed to state lawmakers, arguing the mascots perpetuate stereotypes and harm Native Americans.
“I’ve been called ‘Chief.’ I’ve even been called ‘Redskin’ in Massachusetts,” said Jason Packineau of Sudbury. “I know in the classroom there’s statistics and studies that show native mascots and their imagery cause bullying, they cause native youth to have a lower value of self esteem.”
(Left: Jason Packineau of Sudbury.) Rep. James Miceli, however, thinks the proposed bill is a case of political correctness gone too far.
“I have a hard time. I think that falls in the category of PC,” said Miceli.
Opponents say mascots become part of a school’s culture and aren’t intended to be demeaning.

Gene of Amesbury is of Narraganset Native American descent. He doesn’t believe a ban will help because it is avoiding the issue.
“One people, one country. This division must stop. This mascot business is nothing more than window-dressing, it is not a problem to me,” he said.
The bill heard Tuesday defines a Native American mascot as a “name, symbol, or image that depicts or refers to an American Indian tribe, individual, custom, or tradition that is used by a public school as a mascot, nickname, logo, letterhead, or team name.”
The bill gives specific examples, including “Redskins,” ”Savages,” ”Indians,” ”Chieftains,” ”Braves” or “Redmen.”
