Shannon Ogden Politically Correct

Are we too politically correct? After ABC fired Roseanne Barr and canceled her sitcom due to a racist tweet, that question came to the surface. On Tuesday, Denver7 premiered a new Roseanne-less show called “The Conners.” John Caldara, president of the Independence Institute, a Denver-based libertarian think tank, believes that we are too politically correct, and he provides examples. You are not permitted to own a dog in Boulder. However, you can protect your pet.

There are approximately sixty distinct terms for gender identity on Facebook. “He is developmentally delayed; we cannot say he is retarded,” Caldara stated. Caldara believes that the terms used to describe people are ambiguous and hard to remember. Caldara stated, “There is no right not to be offended.” Political columnist, retired Air Force colonel, and former Air Force Academy professor Dr. Hal Bidlack believe that political correctness has led both sides astray.

Bidlack stated, “We see it with very foolish notions on the left, especially at universities and colleges, to try to ensure that no one says anything that could be offensive when, in fact, the purpose of college is to challenge your ideas.”

However, the right, according to Bidlack, has transformed it into something far more perilous. Bidlack stated, “It’s nonsense to say, ‘Oh you’re just politically correct,’ as a kind of weapon to say what the person is saying.” Bidlack acknowledges that keeping track of what people prefer to be called takes effort, but he asserts that they get to choose.

He adds that making an effort is a small price to pay to get along better. According to Bidlack, “it makes sense that our language would also evolve as our society evolves.” In some circles, opposing political correctness has become an excuse to say outrageous things. For instance, during a Republican primary debate in 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump was questioned about the numerous insults he had hurled at women, such as calling them “fat pigs” and making a crude sexual remark to a contestant on his television show “The Apprentice.”

Trump replied, “I don’t have time for political correctness.” This, according to Bidlack, is the most troubling aspect of the PC versus anti-PC argument. If you challenge him on something outrageous he says, you are merely attempting to limit his freedom of speech.

That doesn’t bode well for the future, “Bidlack stated. Interestingly, Caldara attributes this to the Bidlack Bunch. He asserts that our hyper-PC culture suppressed speech to such an extent that it produced President Donald Trump. “And sooner or later, people will vote for someone like Trump out of frustration because he talks the way I’d like to talk,” he said.
