Donald Trump often exposes exactly what is wrong with the social structure of our country. Political correctness has truly led us down a path of ignorance and cowardice.
One of the best ways to explain political correctness and its advantages to an authoritarian power like our central government is in the words of Alexis de Tocqueville:
Thus, After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.
Trump exposed this truth in last night's press conference after victories in Michigan, Mississippi, and Hawaii when a reporter asked him about his anti-PC rhetoric.
"Oh, you’re so politically correct. You’re so beautiful," Trump said.
"I know, you’re so perfect. Aren’t you perfect. Aren’t you just a perfect young man," Trump continued.
"Hey, give me a break. You know what? It’s stuff like that that people in this country are tired of. It’s stuff like that."
