Many are getting concerned about ‘political correctness’ and where it is leading in the USA:

America’s “big problem,” declared Donald Trump during the first GOP presidential debate, “is being politically correct.”
Many Americans first heard about “political correctness” back in 1990 from Newsweek’s iconic “THOUGHT POLICE” issue.
Newsweek’s astonishingly candid cover story accurately described the “PC” phenomenon – then blossoming on college campuses nationwide – as “Marxist” and “totalitarian” in origin.
Since then, political correctness and the powerfully totalitarian leftist agenda underlying it have turned many of America’s top universities into what historian William Lind calls “small, ivy-covered North Koreas.” …

“Donald Trump is right about political correctness,” said Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian. “It is like a disease that has infected America and is destroying it. The cure is truth, spoken boldly and courageously, but without hate.
I first objected to ‘political correctness’ in writing in 1991 related to certain peers and professors involved with the university I received my Ph.D. from.
The movement has grown.
We are now getting more and more to the place where freedom of academic expression, to cite one, is being limited. Teachers can lose the opportunity for tenure if they dare teach that there are scientific problems with evolution (e.g. Is There Another View of Evolution?), ‘climate change,’ or a variety of other positions that the mainstream has determined need to be taught a certain way. ...
