The political correctness of America has become everything except correct


I am so tired of self righteous people acting as if their opinion is all that matters. I am not gay and I am not prejudice, but if someone wants to fly their rainbow flag (or their Confederate flag), go for it. It is you and not me, therefore, none of my business. Enjoy your life and I will continue to enjoy mine. Congrats!

  • Man, do I agree with you. You sound like - an American who wants to enjoy your life without messing with others and expecting others not to mess with you. That's how this country is supposed to be. There is nothing in the US Constitution that guarantees people the right not to be offended. Sometimes people just need to GET OVER IT.

  • The confederate flag is a traitor flag. They conspired with the UK to overthrow the USA. Its the equivalent of flying a ISIS flag on your property or having on your shirt, automobile, etc.

    • LOL I can't believe the hypocrisy in that comment... How was the US started? BY TRAITORS! Yes believe it or not they betrayed Britain to gain independence, what I find funny is you yanks don't classify it as a civil war because you were basically killing your brothers, like when you came into Canada and got pushed out of Fort York and burnt, pillaged and raped all the way back to the US.. Bet they don't teach that in US history classes, eh? Yeah that's why the Brits burnt down the white house, and yes we did win 1812 because you failed taking any of our land... The problem with your argument is the UK didn't help the confederates at all, they were officially neutral..

  • Oh, I wish I was in the land of cotton,
    Old times there are not forgotten.
    Look away, look away, look away Dixie Land!
    In Dixie's Land, where I was born in,
    early on one frosty mornin'.
    Look away, look away, look away Dixie Land!
    I wish I was in Dixie, Hooray! Hooray!
    In Dixie's Land I'll take my stand,
    to live and die in Dixie.
    Away, away, away down south in Dixie!
    Away, away, away down south in Dixie!

  • Understanding the value of an idea requires you to know that there is no such thing as an "empty" gesture. Ignoring symbolism is, at best, foolish. This is the kind of logic behind shouting n** and expecting no one to get mad.

    • You see? That word is "so bad" you can't even say it with asterisks and periods. "Naughty black people word".

    • I still think that it's hypocritical though that black people get offended if you use the n-word, but some of them still use it all the time to describe themselves or others. I live in a country where most of the population is white (much more than in the US) and the equivalent of the word in our language is very widespread and probably the most-used term to describe dark-skinned people. I personally never use it though, but it's seen as much less of an insult. It really depends on the situation in which you use it, almost no one here uses it as an insult, just a neutral term.

  • It's a classic case of the majority trying to force their beliefs and opinions onto others. Of course anyone can fly a confederate flag on their property and (hopefully) pastors are not FORCED to marry gays if they choose not to, but for things like government property and basically anything that is not privately owned but is part of the public, these liberals want to force their opinions onto it as a way to legitimize their views. And for everything that is private, like someone's house, or a company like Apple or Google, if they flew the confederate flag and announced they were against gay marriage, then liberals would want to force their opinion on them as well by a) socially shaming them, or b) boycotting their products.

    It's just how democracy works. You have two sides, one who wants the flag on courthouses and such, and one that doesn't. One side wants gays to be married, one side doesn't. Because this is a public or national thing, one side has to win over the other, and since the majority of voters want the flag, and the majority of SCOTUS wanted gay marriage, they won.

  • Yeah, I think of you want to fly the swastika on your own land that's up to you. If I want it tattooed on my face, along with a big KKK and a confederate flag... that's my choice.

    I agree with you, it shouldn't be freedom for some if you agree with what we think.

  • As a Jersey girl I am very offended when the great people of the Southern States call Northeners "Yankees" as a result the NY Yankees Baseball team needs to change their name. in the words of Rodney King, can't we all just get along.

  • I was about to ask why that has anything to do with political correctness until I saw that you mentioned the Confederate Flag (and I'm assuming you're talking about the woman who took down the Confederate Flag).

    I do think that sometimes PC goes too far even though it has a noble sentiment--not wanting to offend people. But people will always be offended at something. There is no way to please everyone.

    Even though many see the flag as a sign of rebellion or state's rights, it is tainted due to it being part of a dark time in history--the states who wanted slavery made the Confederate Flag. It's kind of how Charlie Chaplin's moustache is very rarely associated with him and is known as Hitler's or the Nazi symbol having been used before as a symbol for Buddhism/Hinduism.

    The fact that it's associated with such negativity, there would be no way (I think) to regain respect for them. But yes, people should be able to fly whatever they want. On federal grounds? That's where the debate comes in.
