About the Author

From the very beginning, the ACLU was started with the goal of subverting and overturning the traditional values of America. Political correctness can seem silly, but it is also a serious ideology which is grounded in cultural Marxism. The goal of political correctness and the ACLU is to create a global society on the basis of the values of the Humanist Manifestos and socialism. Political correctness censors speech, actions, and ideas that are deemed conservative by the elitists on the left. Things that are out of step with the leftists can be considered aggression and hate speech, particularly if they are termed racist, sexist, or homophobic. Totalitarian and communist regimes have used political correctness to enforce their ideologies: in America, this is trumping freedom of speech. American society is entering a new Dark Ages, where education quality is declining and general crudity is increasing.
Political correctness has seven key points, some of which generate an inconsistent set (although logical consistency is not seen as necessary for these ideologues).
- Liberal elitism
- Evolution both of the human race and culture
- Moral relativism
