Kay's Commentary 2008-08-01

Download File The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling: One could submit that political correctness borne since the late 1970s is alive and well, and has been destructive to our society. It has traveled to the European countries where because of the elitism there, which already existed, political correctness took hold rapidly. I believe most of Europe, minus Britain, and possibly other countries, where there is still hope, though they are rapidly being invaded by a different extreme religion called Islam -- Europe is lost as a world democratic partner. Europe stands back and criticizes all the great efforts that we attempt in the name of world humanity, and Europe criticizes and dislikes us, and does little or nothing in the name of democracy and world peace. They are only interested in protecting their own fannies. They send troops to Iraq and Afghanistan, token amount, but not for combat. Because of political correctness, historical happenings are being assaulted Big-Time. In England, for example, for some time because the holocaust was so barbaric English textbooks from elementary school through higher education, has been totally eliminated as though the word never existed. Despite that, the holocaust destroyed millions of innocent lives. Not only has world media been corrupted and become political, but history no longer is authentic or honest. Very recently, George Archibald wrote in the still credible Washington Times that social studies textbooks, in elementary and secondary schools, are mostly a disgrace, that in the name of political correctness and multi-culturalism, there is failure to give students a true account of American history say academic historians and educational advocates. It is insane, but going back to the 1970s, textbook publishers and teachers said Do not cast adverse reflections on any gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or cultural group. Publishers added further anti-bias guidelines which banned words, phrases, images, and depictions of people deemed unacceptable such as the words: man, mankind, manpower, and men, said to be sexist. Also banned are: able-bodied, aged, babe, backward, chic, fairy, geezer, idiot, imbecile, redskin, sissy, and waitress. This is so foolish, and doesn’t this nonsense create in our children weak and sensitive wimps who will never learn honest history? Kudos to Joseph Terranco for shedding light on the despicable deliberate attack on the authenticity of true historical facts in childrens’ textbooks. Our younger generation is being misled, and we can no longer trust history. Will it be lost forever? For KSCO and KOMY, this is Kay Zwerling. Copyright 2008
