PC is soft language, spin.

"Pro-family" is one of my favorite terms. A kind, soft spin for anti-LGBT rights.

A lot of the right's "politically correctness" revolves around how they demand their religion be treated. Hypocritically, in ways they would never agree that another religion be treated.
Refusing to sell a cake specifically to be used in an activity that violates the baker's religious beliefs is not judging the participants lifestyle, it is a statement of the baker's religious beliefs. In our current environment where victimhood is exalted, the prospective customer is empowered to destroy the bakery under the color of government authority with no thought to accomodation of religious freedom.

Are libs in this thread actually trying to claim their side isn't the party of victimhood?

Sorry, you can't erase decades of whining. Liberals made their bed. Now it's time to lie down and go night-night.

I remember the right crying when the Dixie Chicks claimed W wasn't their president. Back then it was unpatriotic to criticize the president during a time of war. How about when Bill Maher said the terrorists weren't cowards when they flew planes into the towers. The right went all out to have his show taken off the air. What was the name of his show again I can't remember, wait, wait now I remember Politically Incorrect of all things. Now if that's not the top of all political correctness not sure what is. How about Obama's bowling when he said he could bowl for the special Olympics and the right went nuts saying he was insulting special needs kids. I know none of these things count and the perpetual crying over the last seven years because the republican candidate didn't win means nothing. But the fact of the matter is that the Republican party is a complete joke and became a **** flinging parody of it's self a long time ago.

I think I just said that in the last few days, I don't remember if it was on this forum or not but I agree completely. Most political issues I gree with the right, it is just the stupid that ran me off.

Say "Happy Holidays" to them instead of "Merry Christmas"?
WAR ON CHRISTIANITY!

I didn't know Christians were able to pass legislation, here I thought it was only elected officials, who knew....

Since when? I don't know of any elected official that has a big "C" after their name.
