The Glorious Politically Correct Master Race by TheDrifterWithin

I want you to do a very simple thing. I promise it won't take long of your time.

I want you to search for "political correctness" on Google Image. By doing so, you will be immediately bombarded with an endless series of images proudly lashing it out. They are satirical cartoons presenting political correctness as a villain, or they feature unflattering declarations like "Political Correctness is tyranny with a happy face", "being political correct does not make you correct", or "Political Correctness is the real bully on the playground". I don't think even Michael Bay gets this much hate. The internet took a fight against it, and now the word is out: political correctness is the enemy. Kill it with fire. While indeed the quest to fight discrimination and bigotry has fallen into complete insanity, I think folks need to think about what they are slamming so vigorously without so much so a second thought.

Political Correctness has become something of a grotesque set of words. It became the spawn of the devil. And by the way, you shouldn't say "devil" because that offends people who don't believe in it. You have to walk on eggs, to check yourself on whatever you say, to make sure you're not offending anyone. You have to be as unbiased as possible. An example of this is in cartoons for children, as the word "God" is strictly forbidden, even in the serene sense of "thank God", or "I swear to God", or "oh my God", terms that even the most fervent of atheists would use. This season of "South Park" was dedicated almost entirely on the subject of the new PC culture, and figures like John Cleese and Bill Maher have been elevated to the status of shiny knights who have been bravely battling this monster. But this monster is like the Hydra: you cut one head and two pop in its place. It just doesn't stop growing, and it's coming for us all. Another shiny knight on the eternal battle between good and PC is Stephen Fry; his quotation about the subject of being offended has been reposted ad nauseum in the internet, usually written in Impact font on images of the British gay comedian by the side. And the quote prays:

It's now very common to hear people say, "I'm rather offended by that". As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. "I find that offensive". It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. "I am offended by that". Well, so f*cking what?

Internet comedian Jon "JonTron" Jafari suffered a backlash after he posted a remark on Twitter calling the new PlayStation 4 "retarded", and it scaled to insane proportions. He went on to declare he was not apologizing for it, and that there are much more alarming and pressing matters in the world than him using the R-word. Last year, Sean Penn had to endure a media lashing over a joke on director Alejandro G. Iñárritu during the Academy Awards, as the Mexican director and his team won Best Picture for "Birdman". It felt to me that Americans were more outraged with the joke than the director himself. But you see, the joke represents a silent problem. It speaks for a cruel, bigoted society. It wasn't, you know, just a joke. There was something else to it: it exposes a racial issue deeply ingrained and institutionalized in American society. And for that, the one who made it must be destroyed. Wow, just wow. I wish I had been the one horrifically humiliated in Oscar night while winning Best Picture.

In movies, portraying Muslim terrorists is almost like a hate crime, and Hollywood has to find other groups to be such terrorists, such as North Koreans, Russians, aliens (that is, aliens from outer space) or even Americans themselves. Because Hollywood avoids Muslins of being villainized as much as possible. In 1998, "The Siege" was savaged for its portrayal of Muslim terrorists, even when the film made Homeric and heavy-handed efforts to drive the point not all Muslins are terrorists (in fact, in the film itself, it was mentioned that Islamophobia was peaking with the attacks). And three years later, in real life, we all know what happened. Movies now are not allowed to even reflect the reality, for the sake of political correctness.

So what's going on?


First things first, we have to understand that the problem doesn't lie in the idea, but in the execution. We're living in times of progression, when people realized just how insane things were a few decades from now. Today, we see a generation bond not to repeat the sins of the fathers (I mean, the mistakes of their parents!). In the 50's, social and even racial segregation was basically the law in some places: Selma comes to our minds. And don't get me started on the treatment of homosexuals: Alan Turing helped the Allies to break the German codes, and what he got for it was a chemical castration and a Benedict Cumberbatch movie. So what happens is that some people want to make up for that. They want people to be equal... or else. They started to adopt a tactic that being nice about what is right won't lead you anywhere, and if you want your way to spread and flourish, you have to impose it. You have to be a fascist about this, to fight for justice by all means necessary.

Urban Dictionary has a spot-on definition of Political Correctness:

Something that started out as a sort of moral common sense - actually not a bad idea, eg. saying "black person" instead of "god-damn cotton-pickin' nigger". However, the whole thing got utterly out of hand in the early 90's, to the point where a lot of people will say "Afro-Carribean" or "Afro-American" because they think it's racist to say "black"! It gets even more ridiculous when you consider that in some parts people think it's offensive to [say] "blackboard" or "black coffee". What began as a force for good (considering the number of people who really are racist, sexist and homophobic) has since become a laughing stock because of the ridiculous extremes to which certain neurotic ultra-liberals took it - cf. a person being "vertically challenged" rather than short.

It's explicitly clear that the problem is in the exaggeration of the ideal, and not in the ideal itself: the last I checked, I'm pretty sure making for a better society without segregation is not, you know, a bad idea. But in the mindset of the ultra-PCs, their idea of what constitutes a "better society" differs from ours, and there is a substantial amount of people that are willing to sacrifice our very rights to free speech in order to achieve that greater good. Political Correctness itself is not the villain here, but the people who came to identify themselves with it, distorting its meaning like it has happened to terms like "libertarian" and "humanist". To work for a better, more equal society is not supposed to have anything to do with silencing people.

This kind of PC is not only repressive, but also even more segregative, as Cleese pointed out to Maher: he declared on his show that he always made jokes of all groups, but one joke about Mexicans and hell breaks loose (Sean Penn will attest that). For you see, the intent of this movement is not to bring equality to all demographics, but to make sure particular groups will not be diminished in any way. More than once here in DA, I talked about how the media has a free card to portray males in sitcoms, ads and comedies as bumbling idiots, but should this start to happen with female characters, accusations of misogyny would rain all over. Minorities or other historically repressed groups can't be mocked because of history, but it's hilarious to make fun of white people dancing, right? So by that logic, what they do is to increase the gap between demographics, to victimize the groups they're supposed to support. This is just as segregative: it's to say these people are untouchable, shielded.



Political correctness should be about equality. A man will not make more money than a woman for the very same job. A black person will not be restrained from getting into a bus or a school because of the colour of the skin. A woman will dress as she wants. A muslin will not suffer any impediment of practising the faith. Someone will not have life opportunities diminished for not having faith. A homosexual couple can walk the streets without any fear of violence or vandalism. This to me is political correctness at its most correct: when you work for a society with equality. In matter fact, that is the literal meaning of "political correct": to be correct on a political viewpoint. Maybe, in special cases like disabled people, there might need to be some sort of handicap so they can catch up with people. And in the case of really poor people, maybe they could use some social benefits for a decent living. But that is to help them to be an active part of the society. And like in any functional society, there needs to be room for free speech. And sometimes, someone will ask who gave that son of a bitch a green card. Someone will say something that will upset people. But as long as there's no real impediment on everyone's life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, those are just words. They can be replied, but they can't be silenced.

This particular brand of Political Correctness is a sign of times, and its exaggeration is promoted by a generation that - phrasing "Land of Confusion" by Genesis - "will put it right" (or so they think). And as the cliché goes, the path to hell is paved with good intentions (yet another offensive remark to non-believers). They believe that the more you speak, the more you will offend people. And offending people is now such a serious issue that to banish such hideous thing seems to triumph over your rights for free speech.



There is another infamous term in the internet called "Social Justice Warrior", shortened to "SJW", and it has been associated with some of the most pretentious human beings in the internet. But if you stop to think about it... Martin Luther King Jr. was a social justice warrior. Gandhi was a social justice warrior. Those were people who fought - without violence - for the rights of their people. They championed social justice, and now, this term became a derogatory term, for being affiliated with self-righteous people who talk loud, point their fingers, but ultimately do nothing but to preach to the choir. I think it's something cathartic: they insult the offender and then they feel good about themselves, almost like if they did their little part to save the world.

I was once talking to my older sister about one douchebag - yet extremely popular - politician here in Brazil that has a very homophobic stance, making shocking declarations regularly. I said I was angry with him, and how uneducated our country is that this guy gets to have such a massive following. But nevertheless, I declared he and his dumbass electors are on their rights to express themselves. My sister then replied: "isn't his right insulting other people?". Damn right it is. So insult him back. Don't gag him. Don't take away anyone's right to speak their minds. Apparently, what is being evoked here is a twisted version of the social contract: you open hand of some freedoms in turn for a better society for yourself and for others. But including speaking what you mean as one of such things is f*cking insane. Thomas Hobbes would be banging his head against his coffin.

Meanwhile, the anti-PC crowd seems to be just as naive. They inherently associate Political Correctness with insanity. Once they spot it, their immediate response is to eliminate it by all means. But this too is choir preaching: they are taking an emotional-based instance as well. They are not thinking things through. In fact, they seem to adopt this mindset that there's no discrimination at all, that everything is on their heads. They are shooting first and asking questions later. And everybody is reduced to toddlers. And no-one wants to sit down and discuss the grey areas, how things really are.



And it gets worst: such massive politically correct movements end up bringing the appearance of angry contrarians, who want to piss off this crowd by being as politically incorrect as they can possibly be. They do it as a way to insult them, to stick it to these self-righteous defenders of equality and justice. And by doing that, they are giving even more ammo to the ultra-PCs, who will defame their detractors as ignorants, making them even more vocal. One group tries to out-shout the other. And no-one wants to hear. No-one wants to be mature. Again: they're all reduced to toddlers.

So genius, what do we do then?


Well, we should realize a joke or even a serious statement is not going to kill anyone. We need to tough up. It must be realized that our rights do not end where others' emotions begin. We need to stop being childish, and I say this because such desire to control what others can say is pretty much what you would expect from a child, or a teenager. For I too believed - maybe not even long ago - that some people and groups needed to be stopped from promoting their controversial opinions, for the sake of society and public peace. But this behaviour is observed in older people, who should have grown out of such mentality like I did, understanding what freedom should be at its most basic.

Jerry Seinfeld criticized college students for being too PC, and he was consequently criticized back by a college student on Huffington Post, who declared that shock humour for the sake of shock itself has no more place in our society. We're living in civilized days. This brand of humour can no longer exist! And the student proclaimed, as proud as he was oblivious:

While I do agree with you that college students today are more sensitive to issues of race and gender politics, it's simply because that's our job as learners. As college students who are engaged in a myriad of social, economic, and political issues, it's our duty to be actively engaged and educated about issues of sexism, racism and prejudice. While, respectfully, your daughter might not quite know what's considered "sexist" yet, I can say with confidence that most college students can distinguish the boundaries of what's considered appropriately sexist or not.


Translation: "Lol! Your daughter is f*cking dumb! And you're even dumber for quoting her!"

It would be very easy to simply ignore this kid, or to call him a "little sh*t" as Maher actually did on his show. But there was something the kid said on his essay that was actually truth: he defended that offensive humour could be used for the sake of raising dialogues about society. The point in which I and everyone with a minimum of understanding about freedom disagree with is when he said this kind of humour cannot just offend: it needs to have some sort of social obligation. And that's ridiculous: offensive humour can exist for such mature sake and for the sake of, you know, just making some cats laugh. But the kid was right in the notion that offensive humour can reach delicate topics that clean comedy can't, and therefore offensive comedy can tackle on social points worthy of debate.



A long time ago, I talked about inappropriate comedy here in DeviantArt. I said that pulling this kind of humour needs a true talent, and that when you fail at it, you may come out much more like a douchebag than as an edgy wise-cracker. But in either cases, you are not supposed to be silenced. No-one is to come to you and say "you did a poor taste joke, so now die". I also talked here in DA about the decadence of "The Simpsons". The episode in which Bart and Lisa proclaim Brazil to be "the most disgusting place [they've] ever been" upset me a lot: it was more proof of how bad these writers were, and how far the serial felt down over the years. But it's their right. If I don't like the joke, I'll just say "that was a bad joke" and I'll move on. But I certainly won't go like "somebody stop them! They hurt my feelings!". And for the record, I would appreciate a good edgy joke with Brazil. Which it wasn't.

Look, I get it: they don't want anyone being diminished. And in our initial outrage in face of someone saying scandalous things, we want to send the person to just shut up, or more politely, to "watch what you say". I'm not saying we should ignore people who say such things: if someone running for president calls Mexicans as rapists, we cannot be in silence. But we cannot silence the other. Let there be the contrary of that. Let there be dialogue. Let there be discussions about how idiotic is this idea, and how idiotic is anyone who would believe in that, despite all the evidence. You don't have to be a sociologist genius to understand that when you are illegally on someone's land, the last thing you want is to bring heat to yourself by committing crimes.

When you are confronted with extreme ignorance, confront the ignorant if you must, but not the right to say ignorant things. Take for example what Susie Boniface from The Mirror did, after a declaration by a columnist from The Guardian contesting scientific advances as a waste of money. She didn't start a petition to ban the writer, as the Rotten Tomatoes childish and immature community did with the pseudo-intellectual film critic Armond White. She replied his dumb rhetoric by listing all the great things NASA and similar companies achieved for humanity. She fought his ignorance with intelligence, and not with oppression. And I'll go further: if the ranter is insignificant enough, why to bother replying at all?

Bill Watterson once declared that deep inside, we all have a bratty child that wants everything made on its way. And this ultra PC speech is a bratty, whiny cry of people who don't want others to ever express conflicting ideologies. People need to be mature on this issue. They need to man up.

Wait... OH, FOR F*CK'S SAKE!

There is a God in Heaven after all! Sorry, I wanted to leave a comment on your journal entry, but the comments were disabled. I HATE the Nostalgia Critic too. He's so annoying and more than half of what he bashes doesn't deserve it! And another thing I hate is when people who do like him read my posts about how I don't like him and attack me and say shit like I have no right to say negative things about him. I hate Spoony and Linkara too. You sir are okay in my book! :)
