The New-Age Useful Idiots

Not too long ago a ”useful idiot” was a Capitalist who made and sold rope to a Communist so the Communist could use the rope to hang the Capitalist.  In the real world we discovered that Communism was a total failure and in the end we saw Capitalism defeating Communism and remaining strong while Communism withered and died.

Now comes the new-age useful idiot, in the form of the current media and the Democrat party, who serves the destruction and possible downfall of Capitalist Democracies by refusing to say descriptive things like “muslim terrorst”, by not saying “anchor babies” and not using the term “illegal alien”, or whatever other politically correct, lying crap the liberal/Democrat/progressives think up at the moment and attempt to push down our throats. Not being able to say the correct descriptive words to accurately identify something, or not identifying a person or an act for fear of being yourself called a racist or a bigot can lead to the loss of all rights and liberties when the party in power can enforce such a PC ban.

On the other hand, liberals/Democrats/progressives relish calling conservatives racists and bigots for anything they say, even when it’s said completely innocently, and they define common-use words used by conservatives in a demeaning manner in order to make the redefinition of a word harmful to conservatives.  This sort of thing does not lead to a homogeneous society and national prosperity.  The so-called Republican “war on women” is a classic example, and the idiocy of it is that it means that Republican women are also waging this alleged war on women, but the liberal press allow liberals to get away with it.  The “hands up, don’t shoot” chant is another example of something that never happened, yet liberal, anti-police groups are having a hey-day with it.  Also the “black lives matter” quote of black protesters is used to shock politicians and get them off-balance, but in itself it’s just a vacant phrase because if black groups really believed that black lives matter nearly as much as Conservatives believe that they matter, they would be demonstrating in front of the Mayors of Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago and New York City (all Democrat mayors, by the way) and try to convince them to stop the hundreds of black-on-black murders occurring daily in theirs and other big cities.

Politically Correctness must be fought by using appropriate words that describe accurately a person or a happening.
