The excellent AT article "Conservatives Pushing Back" by Bruce Walker explored what we conservative thinkers (We are, after all, American Thinkers) have known for quite some time: political correctness (PC) is to culture what Marxism is to economics. To recognize that fact arms us with what we need in order to push back. As Walker says (emphasis added), "[t]hese marketplace ballots are the key not only to the survival of a non-totalitarian America, but also to the final defeat of those whose minds and wills are chained with hard, cold manacles of leftism."

Walker's article is (pardon the pun) right on the money. So, in an effort to further understand PC, exploration of its similarities to Marxism is in order.

Karl Heinrich Marx (1818-1883) was a German socialist. Marx's social, economic, and political theories proclaimed that societies progress through class struggle. His focus was upon economics, so Marx concentrated on the conflict between an ownership class that controlled production and a proletariat that provided the labor for production. He referred to capitalism as the "dictatorship of the bourgeoisie." The proletariat, the oppressed workers, were supposed to be the beneficiaries of a social revolution that would place them on top of the power structure.

Marx's key concept was "class struggle." That's where PC comes in. PC seeks to impose a uniformity of thought and behavior, just like Marxism, on all Americans and is, therefore, quite totalitarian in nature. PC is, in concept, similar to Marxism, but its focus is upon culture, rather than economics, as the class struggle environment.

PC, just like Marxism, forces people to live a lie by denying reality. PC takes a political philosophy and says that on the basis of the chosen philosophy, certain things must be true, and reality that contradicts its "truth" must be forbidden -- eradicated since it disputes PC, exposes as untrue what PC says is true. People are reluctant to live a lie, so they use their eyes and ears to see reality, to say, "Wait a minute. This isn't true. I can see it isn't true; the power of the state [PC] must be put behind the demand to live a lie." Marxism, by denying economic reality, did exactly the same thing.

PC, just like Marxism, has a method of analysis that always provides the answer it wants. For PC, the "answer" is found through deconstruction, which takes any situation, removes all meaning from it, and replaces it with PC's desired meaning. Walker references this point when he says, "[T]hat her [Paula Deen's] devout Christian faith is more the real target than past use of an unhappy word which did not keep Robert Byrd from remaining, by election of his fellow Senate Democrats, the most powerful Democrat politician in America."

PC, just like Marxism, depends upon defining what it considers good and bad groups. It defines good groups as "victims" of bad groups. The victims can never be anything but good, regardless of what their actions may be. Witness what the Black Panthers did in Philadelphia, PA in 2008 and 2012. Any group identified as good by PC (homosexuals, blacks, Hispanics, illegal immigrants, feminist women, mentally and/or physically challenged people, the poor, environmentalists, the list goes on and on) must be shown deference, both physically and linguistically. They must not be offended, must not be insulted.

Any group identified as bad by PC, such as white males or any Christian group, can be offended. This offense, PC practitioners say, "makes up" for past offenses certain to have been committed in the past by bad groups. And what's worse is that the PC practitioners get to define the offenses committed by the bad groups. This situation, by definition, is a "self-fulfilling prophesy."

Rush Limbaugh, in 2010, said, "Our politically correct society is acting like some giant insult has taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards." The PC crowd labeled Limbaugh's statement offensive and insulting. Imagine that. Limbaugh was just "calling a spade a spade." Like it or not, PC cannot prevent mental retardation, cannot alter reality. But that doesn't stop them from trying.

PC, just like Marxism, depends upon expropriation. PC is literally taking over our language, and woe be unto him/her that dares speak the truth. When Marxists took over Russia, they expropriated the bourgeoisie by confiscating their property. Similarly, when PC takes over our culture, quotas are set. The so-called bourgeoisie are told whom they can and can't hire, and in what quantities they can hire. As an example, see what the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is currently up to. And let's not forget affirmative action, a system of expropriation if there ever was one, another PC favorite. When a black or Hispanic student (or some other "victim"), who isn't as well-qualified as a white student, gains university admittance through affirmative action, the white student's admittance is expropriated.

PC, just like Marxism, has a single factor explanation of all of history. PC says that all history is determined by power, by which groups have power over which other groups. Nothing else matters. Period. PC is all about gaining power for the good groups that it defines. To further that goal, PC literally rewrites history. And PC says that the Bible is actually about race and gender. Nothing is beyond the PC crowd.

As an example of what PC has done and is currently doing, examine the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case/trial. First, always PC, Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama said, "You know, if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon." Then, ever PC NBC doctored the 911 recording; thus, "NBC created this false and defamatory misimpression using the oldest form of yellow journalism: manipulating Zimmerman's own words, splicing together disparate parts of the recording to create the illusion of statements that Zimmerman never actually made." Here is what PC tried to do before the trial. "Many viewed the early lack of charges against Zimmerman as unequal justice for a black victim. More than 2 million people signed an online Change.org petition demanding 'Justice for Trayvon Martin.'" Now, the prosecution is trying to say that Zimmerman is a liar, that his injuries were not life-threatening. I'm quite certain that AT readers can cite numerous other examples.

The U.S. has become an ideological state, a country with an official state ideology and history that has been defined by PC. People convicted of "hate crimes" as defined by PC are currently serving jail sentences for political thoughts contrary to PC. And it's only getting worse -- PC continues to spread.

Marx believed his ideology, his economic system to be true. But, reality contradicted his system. His ideology did not adjust to reality. Hopefully the PC ideology will soon suffer a similar fate. It is, as Walker points out, a corrupt ideology. The only problem is that we will have no country, will have an economic disaster once people are confronted with reality, when enough people say, "Wait a minute. This isn't true." Meanwhile, the Democrats/Progressives/Liberal s who will not adjust to reality continue the PC ideology. And they have convinced the MSM and enough low-information voters to continue to empower them as all three groups continue to ignore reality.

Charlton Heston once said, "Political correctness is tyranny with manners." Tyranny, yes, but practitioners seem to have forgotten the manners part.

I don't know you look down on people working at McDonalds, not that I work there heck I would love to own a couple franchise. You shouldn't be a snob though. At least they work and earn a check unlike some socialist baby boomer who leech other's taxes for their SS checks.

PLEEEEEEEASE,
You are against SS and Medicare, yet you're worried about police and Firemen losing pensions?
I don't think you know what you're talking about.
First of all, SS has been paid into by the employees and same goes for Medicare. It's automatically taken out of paychecks.
Today, there are more senior citizens, more than ever, eligible for SS. Boomers!
BTW....if it had not been for the WWII immigrants and US citizens, this country wouldn't be as great as it is.(Read anout the Industrial Revolution on this country)They worked their asses off for future generations, and it is punks like you who need to be pulled down a peg because you don't know what work is, nor do you appreciate the history of this country., and the backbone of its citizens!
I hope you're saving your pennies now because if you don't get a tremendous job with outstanding pay, you will be forced to take SS and Medicare when you retire at 75.. for some people it is not as easy as it sounds, punkey!
Think about this: IF it were not for SS or Medicare, everyone would be on welfare

I look down on dumb people who have a low skill set, earn a low wage because they are dumb, and then blabber about how all old people are a drain on society.

Old people paid into SS and Medicare, and deserve to reap the benefits they paid for. Their SS and Medicare benefits are calculated BASED on what they contributed over their lifetime.

If you want to accurately criticize deadbeats, Medicaid and welfare recipients are the correct target. Medicaid and welfare recipients paid nothing for their benefits. Learn to know the difference.

That is one of the dumbest assumption I have heard in years. This is why social securty aka socialism welfare needs to be eliminated once and for all. You think just because people paid into a retirement system they are entitled to receive full benefit? Go ask anyone who works in the private sector about their 401k and yes firefighters and policemen do pay their pensions out of their paychecks and worked their asses off 10x than a stupid grandmom works in a desk job for 20 years. Are you suggesting firefighters do not deserve the full pension they have paid into just like your grandmom? That is exactly what is wrong with this country our priority are screwed focusing on 60 year old non-productive citizens rather than punks like me who actually can spur up the economy. Should Mark Zuckerburg be denied a semi-decent public education just so we can donate another $200 toward your grandmom's prescription drugs and her electric scooter? Are you telling me Bill Gates and Steve Jobs should not be allowed to learn so we can save that money to build more nursing homes? You got it backward sister.

Oh and the babyboomers live alot longer than the WWII generations (75 and up) and you're telling me it's fair that they worked under 30 years and "entitled" to unlimited benefit for the next 50 years? Guess who is going to pick up the tab?

Only if you are liberal who believe in that social welfare system. If you are one of them die hard RINO who yap about social benefit being given to a certain group over another than you are a hypocrite.

Besides, we are broke! There is no money to sustain SS/Medicare.

LMFAO
So,what you're saying is when your mother and grandmother get to be a certain, discard them, because they're useless. Or is it liberal moms and grandmas? You are the most ignorant imbecile to come on Topix. If I were you, I would crawl back under the rock you live under. You have no respect, no insight into anything that makes sense, you're insulting, STUPID, a bafoon, and pricck and a total bastard! Your mother amd father should be embarrassed for raising an insensitive,no empathy, little runt.
