“It’s Political Correctness Gone Mad!” and Other Baby Whines of the Right.

There is no left wing ‘Thought Police’ forcing political correctness on everyone else. There is, however, a right wing ‘Thought Police’ spreading paranoia about political correctness. Yes, some left wing people do go a little too far in vociferously defending human rights, or calling for them to be extended, which is what the right see as political correctness. But when it comes down to it, it is the arrogance of white male middle class privilege that is the force for reactionary political unrest in the twenty-first century. By definition, the underdogs, the less privileged, the poor, and the oppressed cannot assert their rights over the ruling class. They — or rather we — can ask for, protest, petition, and ultimately vote for our rights. But by and large we are all helpless. It is just ridiculous for the rich, privileged, predominantly white and male, dominant, ruling class to whine that that they face ‘political correctness gone mad’. They actually make themselves look pathetic; crybabies who have very little to cry about and a hell of a lot to be thankful for. Revolutions come about when one sector of the ruling class decides to off another sector of the ruling class, and promise the lower orders a say in the new order. That is what is happening now. The loud mouthed, arrogant, to their minds ‘deprived’ but in reality well off and powerful are turning on the intellectuals and getting the working class to provide the muscle. No good can come of that. We’ve already chucked out of the EU. Look at what happens to the chuckers. Nothing. They are what happens to us, in the end.
