The “PC” Police’s goals are even more nefarious than we first thought

Donald Trump won the presidency largely because a “silent majority” of Americans were sick of the “PC Police” forcing their views on us.

But over the first year of his presidency so-called Social Justice Warriors have only become more shrill in their condemnation for traditional American values.

Now a new poll has revealed just how much damage “PC” culture has wreaked on political discourse.

According to a Cato Institute survey, 71% of Americans believe that political correctness has stifled free speech.

What’s worse is according to the survey, 58% of Americans believe “the political climate prevents them from sharing their own political beliefs.”

Among those Americans who self-censor their political believes, nearly three-fourths of conservatives keep some beliefs private, while a majority of Democrats don’t hold back their political beliefs.

The Cato Institute reports:

Democrats are unique, however, in that a slim majority (53%) do not feel the need to self-censor. Conversely, strong majorities of Republicans (73%) and independents (58%) say they keep some political beliefs to themselves.

Two-thirds of Americans (66%) say colleges and universities aren’t doing enough to teach young Americans today about the value of free speech. When asked which is more important, 65% say colleges should expose students to “all types of viewpoints even if they are offensive or biased against certain groups.” About a third (34%) say colleges should “prohibit offensive speech that is biased against certain groups.”

More than three-fourths (76%) of Americans say that recent campus protests and cancellations of controversial speakers are part of a “broader pattern” of how college students deal with offensive ideas. About a quarter (22%) think these protests and shutdowns are simply isolated incidents.

Night-after-night, the biased national media presents news stories on their terms.

They continuously portray anyone who believes in small government as “extreme.”

And the fake news media are accomplishing their goal of silencing their political opponents.

When Americans with conservative beliefs self-censor, that means politicians and talking heads pushing big government “solutions” face no opposition in the public sphere.

We want to hear your thoughts.

Can the “silent majority” afford to remain silent anymore?

    What don’t you understand about the meaning of “illegal “ ??
    When I do something that’s illegal, I get
    PUNISHED, if I don’t get punished , i will
    keep on doing illegal things. Duh ????
    Why should – special groups of people get
    away with doing illegal things- and not get
    How much do I have to pay ???? for Justice,
    seeing how it looks like it’s up for sale in America today?

    Beautifully said, Reverend. I was taught as a small child to be respectful in someone else’s home. I was taught to be grateful for the invitation to go into someone elses home, to take care that I don’t break things, to clean up my own messes, to not touch or take things that do not belong to me, to always be on my best behavior, to say please and thank you and always leave things cleaner or tidier than how I found them. Old fashioned? I don’t think so. Polite? Absolutely. But I was always invited back! Maybe we need to find, or resurrect “politeness” in this day and age. God knows we could use some!

  4. Reverend Robert Basile says:

    While on AMERICAN SOIL, “ALL” guests who come here legally, you “WILL” live by our laws, our cultures, our customs, our religions, and honor Our Flag and Our History. Should you find any of this unacceptable, pack your bags, grab your family, and go back to the place you found it necessary to leave.
    Keep that in mind. Should you fail to remember that, YOU came to OUR COUNTRY, no one made you come here.
