Political correctness exposes West


Australian Journalist Janet Albrechtsen proves yet again in today’s papers her ability to hit the proverbial nail on the head when it comes to the curse of political correctness. Tracing a line from the conspiracy of silence surrounding the shocking sexual assaults on New Year’s Eve in Cologne to the silence of the German authorities, to the delicate students of today and their need for a ‘safe place’ to the public shaming of climate sceptics, ‘homophobes’ and’ Islamophobes,’ Janet demonstrates in a few succinct sentences how ‘more than three decades of political correctness is suffocating liberty in the West.’

9296023134_3e48034e41_Political-correctnessOn a decidedly prescient, if not prophetic note, she further connects the dots between the stifling of social and political discourse by a self appointed and self entitled elite to ‘the next outcome’… the rise of the far right in Europe, and the populist in the United States ‘in the unmistakeable image of Donald Trump.’ Whilst observing that Trump is not fit to be President, Janet’s interpretation on the Trump phenomenon rings true with a clarity that the baffled intellectual lightweights of the political left can only wish for and cover over with their penchant for juvenile abuse.

“Those who write off Trump, and other right-wing populists, as nut-jobs and their supporters as hothead members of the forgotten middle class are only half right. The stifling imposition of political correctness by the political, media and cultural elite has created the Trump spectacle.”

“After years of trying to reason, even debate, with a PC crowd that brooks no disagreement, Trump sticks it up them. People may not agree with every stupid or insulting thing Trump says, but maybe they are liberated by a politician who says what he wants. After years of being told what to think, what to say, what not to say, it’s ­refreshing to listen to a bloke who won’t have a bar of the myriad political correctness filters applied to every field of life.”

Yes, and Amen!
