Is Political Correctness Literally Killing Our Society?

By Jeff Gonzales

I loved growing up as a kid, sleeping with my windows open and sometimes even the doors open. It was a great time to be a kid for sure, but today we live in a drastically different world.

The Rise of Political Correctness

Today, we’re left to deal with the dangers of our politically correct society; one where society paints good guys as bad. If you choose to carry a firearm, defend yourself, or even consider taking another human’s life to protect a loved one, you’re demonized. It’s a sad state indeed, but we’re finally reaping what we’ve sowed.

It shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out many crimes are targeted against defenseless or weak targets. I wonder why that is; I wonder if we could look at the animal kingdom and see a similar pattern? Could it be that the lioness is chasing after the weaker of the prey in order to guarantee a meal? If she fails to catch and kill her prey, she doesn’t eat. It really is that simple; in order to increase the chances of success, evil will choose the weaker or soft target.

The Truth Will Set You Free

A new study released by Stanford University entitled Mass Shootings of America or MSA has determined that most mass shootings were largely conducted in “gun free” zones. This is my surprised face. If anyone is still convinced gun free zones are safe, they’re ignorant.

“The definition of mass shooting used for the Stanford database is 3 or more shooting victims (not necessarily fatalities), not including the shooter. The shooting must not be identifiably gang or drug related. The motive typically appears to be indiscriminate killing.”

Statistics can always be skewed to fit one narrative, but common sense and understanding predatory mindset would help bridge the gap and provide insight into a smarter choice. I’m hopeful that this new study will help us achieve an open dialogue with the anti-gun crowd, in hopes of abolishing the gun free zones. At the very least, acknowledging the unintended consequences of gun free zones as being criminal/terrorist empowerment zones.

United We Stand

We live in a society where we have rules and laws we must follow. We must collectively work to address the harsh reality that criminal and terrorist elements are, by nature, not going to follow the law. If we can agree on this premise, it sets the stage to intelligently discuss how to go about better protecting the weak and defenseless.

If we know they’ll more than likely target gun free zones, what can we do to help deter them from doing so? Many are quick to comment that the presence of armed, uniformed officers or security guards is enough and while I believe it’s a step in the right direction, it’s not the only solution.

Real Solutions for Real Problems

We have to recognize that this will require more than the begrudging acceptance of an armed, uniformed officer on site. It will require us to seriously look at doing away with gun free zones and allowing the citizenry to defend themselves.

Why is this such a hard concept to grasp and why is there so much push back? My gut tells me it’s simply about control. There are many groups within our country who don’t want life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness to be extolled. Instead, they want you to fall in line and live according to their ideas. If that notion doesn’t scare the crap out of you, then you’re probably on the wrong side of this discussion.

It’s predatory instinct to target the weak and defenseless, but it’s also a human right to defend your life.

    Yes it killed the UK.

  • Louie M Perez III

    Yes … I Present you The L.P.A.A ……..The Liberal Pussification of America Act

  • Matthew Jewell

    Damn right it is. Not a day goes by without the news telling us about how somebody is offended by something.
    Why the hell do people say that anyway? Oh, I’m offended! Like it gives them some kind of magical power. Hey, you’re offended. Good for you. Who gives a shit? Stop being a pussy.

  • John H. Reese

    YES!

  • Michael Teafatiller

    Liberal correctness is the real name

  • Ken Martinson

    Yup, it sure is.

  • Tired of Being Labeled

    Here’s what I’ve gathered so far in my 4-ish decades on this planet.
    I’ve found that if two people engaged in a conversation come from a
    sincere and earnest desire to understand the other and be
    understood—even if they ultimately disagree—a lot of bullshit falls to
    the wayside. If someone I’m talking to says to me, “Hey, I don’t like
    that word, and I’d appreciate it if you didn’t use it,” then out of
    respect for that person, I’ll try not to use it. If I don’t *identify*
    with that person, I might not choose to hang out with them, but I’m not
    going to go out of my way to hurt them.

    But what I
    don’t like is being labeled “lazy” or “oppressive” or what-the-fuck-ever
    if I’m not fully up-to-speed on what terms were fine, but are now
    somehow not okay. Educate me on what *you* want, and I’ll listen. You’re
    an individual with preferences just like me. But label me for labeling
    you, and you’re committing the same sin you’re hanging me for.

    One-on-one,
    expression of preferences is fine. Focusing on word choice to destroy
    debate wholesale and demonize a mythical group of people is *not* okay. I
    don’t like that @#$% any more than you do.

  • Iver Tieger

    Yes..and my response to the offended suck it up butter cup and ill send someone over to rub your vagina

  • Brushpopper

    Great article!  It’s a shame our kids cannot sleep with the windows open like we used to, of course we kinda had to since we only had one window unit and sometimes it was too expensive to run! 😉

  • Allwet

    There is no doubt, PC is the antithesis of actual natural order. Its stand or fall time people.

  • Parallax View

    “politically correct society; one where society paints good guys as bad” doesn’t go far enough.
    I won’t use the term “politically correct” to describe something which is social engineering, not politics, and anything but correct for anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together.
    The other side of “painting good guys as bad” is painting bad guys as good: murderous gangs and drug dealers are underprivileged and misunderstood; bank robbers are just disadvantaged entrepreneurs, just doing the best they can; lack of self-discipline, morals, or ethics is “self-expression”; and the person who steals your wallet needs help, and the person who steals my wallet should be hunted down without mercy and locked up forever.
    Ya gotta love the liberal-left philosophy – or maybe not!
    Let’s build a wall around *them*; think of it as a kind of social composting.

  • Olavi Lahikainen

    In my opinion stupid people are bigger problem. If we’d ban reproduction from everyone with iq under 120, we’d get rid of stupid people and their shitty genetic pool in relatovely short time and humanity could once again focus on doing something useful.

  • Julio Melendez

    It is a necessary.

    • Wake up

      No, it is not necessary.

      That would be a lie.

      You have a Right to Speech.

      The 1st Amendment.

      Political correctness is incorrect.

  • Duncan Wardlaw

    Yes. Yes it is.

  • Sean Swanger

    PC is turning us into PussC’s. News flash people, life isn’t nice, people’s opinions are going to be different, your feelings don’t matter to other people, grow the f ck up.

  • Wake up

    It is the suppression of the 1st amendment core right to speech.

    The idea of even the consideration of the ability to sue over speech is beyond F ck up.

  • MRSY

    It is so true. I am really
    happy to see such open voice and dare to name it attitude. But it is not just
    in US. All modern societies are struggling with double standards and things
    upside down.

  • JRcloud9

    Great article, and though I’m north of the border, I completely agree entirely. ONE is much less likely to cause senseless harm when the chance of someone shooting back is elevated. I only wish we as Canadians were permitted to bare arms.

    • Allwet

      Canadian LoneWolf Well, at least we got your 06’….even though our 06, is WFO.

  • I’m offended! Like it gives them some kind of magical power. Hey,
    you’re offended. Good for you. Who gives a shit? Stop being a pussy.
