We are threatened by a nasty cancer epidemic. It’s a danger to our nation.
It’s political correctness and multiculturalism. Make no mistake. These are a disease. A cancer.
Consider these recent examples:
San Antonio school officials were horrified that Alamo Heights High School students chanted “USA, USA” after their school defeated Edison [High School] in a basketball game.
Let me check. Yes, San Antonio is still in the USA.
You realize that if students had chanted the name of any other country that school officials would have praised it as cultural pride.
Lexington, Kentucky’s Human Rights Commission is investigating “Hands on Originals” t-shirt company because its owners declined on religious grounds a request to print t-shirts for the city’s Gay and Lesbian Services Organization.
And officials at Pilgrim High School in Warwick, Rhode Island painted over a student’s mural depicting the life of man from young boy to husband. The image of a heterosexual couple with a child was deemed offensive.
Political correctness and multiculturalism are an ugly demand that everyone accept favored organizations and groups, while simultaneously demonizing others.
It’s a cancer we must wipe out.04/12/12 Political Correctness
