You are watching: Political correctness is fascism pretending to be manners
Your ViewEditor:The thin blue line flag to represent the principles of bravery, duty, honor and also courage. Sadly, under our current anti-police times, it has been falsely figured out with racism. This flag has actually nothing to perform with racism, it is no different than the star of life for EMS. The is, the course, till James Flores decides that is unacceptable. George Carlin when said “political correctness is just fascism pretending to be manners.” I have to listen to my finest instinct and let this go, yet I can’t. Once you’ve invested your entire life in legislation enforcement, over there is something around bowing to Flores the gnaws in ~ me. In mine view, we live in a time whereby citizen intake in federal government affairs is limited by narrow-minded political leaders who just care about the illustration of “political correctness” and “who have the right to scream the loudest.” Our politics board, choose marionettes, plays to the song of Flores, who will suspicion them that racism if they don’t agree v him. Sky forbid they must listen to competing ideas from united state bumpkins that pay the bills. Our chosen officials derive their authority indigenous the will certainly of the world (that’s you and also me). In Windham, those well-defined roles have been reversed. Castle dictate what friend see, hear and, if they might pull it off, what friend think. Most importantly, they will always give Flores his “safe space” to spew his own agenda (hate of anything policing). A note of fist to those that fall all over themselves come appease Flores for are afraid he will certainly accuse friend of being racist: you may be the next victim that his linguistic venom. To my brothers and sisters in blue, stand tall, you job-related in the most honorable profession.
