What the heck is the Politically Correct Police (aka PC Police)? I've been hearing about them for years now, but have never been able to figure out who they are.
They appear to be some mysterious force intent on governing our speech and behavior. And, to my dismay, they appear to be succeeding.
Who empowered them to speak for us? What authority do they have? Who determines which laws of behavior they enforce?
Are they members of the media? Are they affiliated with political parties? Or, are they our friends and family?
Just who the heck are they?
Answers are hard to come by. For, in fact, the PC Police don't actually exist. At least not as a living, breathing entity. They are simply figments of our imagination. They're an unnamed force intent on influencing how we feel, think and act. . . if we let them.
Their only power is the power we give them. Disavow their existence and they all but disappear. They're like the monster in a dark room hiding in the closet waiting to pounce.
Dare I Say, turn on the light, chase the monster away and use your God-given, good conscience as your guide.
