Political Correctness is when someone thinks that their view on a topic is the correct one and that you are wrong. So they try and force their view using a spurious moral argument. Often using words ending in -ism and -ist. By this means they impose their views on the world. The BBC is full of this. But political correctness is itself morally wrong, it takes away our freedom of speech. And its proponents (who are virtually all of the left) seek to take away our freedom to think. They have made many politically correct laws that make it a criminal offence to exercise our basic rights. And they continually seek to further restrict our freedoms. They are the enemy.
Cultural Marxism is the sweeping away of all our traditions, our individuality, our freedoms and our rights. To be replaced by a dystopian future where we are all uniform and we all conform. This is a fundamental precept of socialism. It is what they seek to do to Great Britain and the BBC is one of their tools.
Multiculturalism. This is the institutionalisation of cultural diversity. So foreigners who come to Great Britain are actively encouraged and even forced not to become British. Not to integrate. This is the ghettoisation of our society and will always lead to friction. As we see in the largely racial riots that feature so regularly on our news. Under multiculturalism people are defined in every way by their ethnic background and official policy is predicated upon this.
Diversity seeks to differentiate and label us according to ethnic background, age, gender, socioeconomic background etc. Having done that it seeks equality of outcome for each differentiated group. Not equality of opportunity. So the BBC has to have its quota of old, homosexual, black etc presenters to show us how wonderful they are about promoting diversity. Choosing the best person for the job doesn’t come into it. Here is the BBC’s prattle on diversity. George Orwell could have written it as an addendum to 1984.
As I pointed out in an earlier article the application of policies of multiculturalism and diversity were major contributors to the industrial scale child sex abuse by Pakistanis committed in Rotherham and other town and cities. The left should be utterly ashamed at what they caused.
Taking Offence is a mechanic by which people try to force their views on someone else. Notice that offence is never given it is always taken. Anyone who takes offence is an intellectual lightweight. They have no cogent argument to support their own views so they try to enforce them by a form of bullying instead. Social media websites like Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter all really need an algorithm that automatically deletes the entire account of anyone who “takes offence”. Taking offence as a mechanic is often an alternative in people to having a sense of humour.
Pejorative Language is a form of political correctness where it becomes a thought crime (and these days often a real crime) to use a certain word. This is utterly ridiculous. Also it is often a matter of fashion, so the word “coloured” became non PC when it was still in widespread use. Also there are many intellectual contortions about what the thought police deem acceptable. So it is OK for supporters of a English soccer club to call themselves y*ds, but a criminal offence for opposing supporters to describe them thus. Likewise a certain ethnic group often call themselves n**gers, but white people can go to jail for doing so. And people of a certain sexual orientation frequently call themselves q**ers but anyone else will be in big trouble for doing so. Our Bill of Rights 1689 rights have been stolen from us by the left. The world has gone utterly mad. The BBC put a lot of effort into making sure we know which words we are allowed to use and which worlds we aren’t. And, as ever, the British people find a way round their oppressors. So “roof rack” becomes rhyming slang for some of those originating from the Indian subcontinent.
Here, from Wikipedia, is a list of what you are not allowed to think and say, as you can see it can be interpreted to put most schoolyard children in jail!:
threatening, abusive or insulting words or behavior intending or likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress or cause a breach of the peace (which has been used to prohibit racist speech targeted at individuals), sending another any article which is indecent or grossly offensive with an intent to cause distress or anxiety (which has been used to prohibit speech of a racist or anti-religious nature), incitement, incitement to racial hatred, incitement to religious hatred, incitement to terrorism including encouragement of terrorism and dissemination of terrorist publications, glorifying terrorism, collection or possession of a document or record containing information likely to be of use to a terrorist, treason including advocating for the abolition of the monarchy (which cannot be successfully prosecuted) or compassing or imagining the death of the monarch, sedition (no longer illegal, sedition and seditious libel (as common law offences) were abolished by section 73 of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 (with effect on 12 January 2010)), obscenity, indecency including corruption of public morals and outraging public decency,defamation, prior restraint, restrictions on court reporting including names of victims and evidence and prejudicing or interfering with court proceedings, prohibition of post-trial interviews with jurors, scandalising the court by criticising or murmuring judges, time, manner, and place restrictions, harassment, privileged communications, trade secrets, classified material, copyright, patents, military conduct, and limitations on commercial speech such as advertising.
We really need a decent government to repeal all this and to restore our rights and freedoms. What the left have done to harm our democracy in this way is utterly disgusting.
