Most modern, radical,Republicans(Especially those on the "Christian Right") are just as guilty of being "political correct" and "idealists" as "radical leftists." It's pretty obvious the way they call people who disagree with them as "Anti-American" "Commies" or wish to restrict the freedoms of those who contradict their "lifestyle" and "opinions" for the sake of "not offending them."

The Left are often the ones being accused of being "PC" by those on the Right. Yet many of those same people on the Right are just as PC. They get offended if someone criticized or contradict their religion, opinions, family values, or anything else they perceived as "normal." If a Leftist person has an opinion they disagree with, they foam at the mouth, resort to name-calling, and say such comments such as that person was being "disrespectful" and "Anti-American"(e.g. Michael Moore who is known for his leftist beliefs was constantly hounded by the Right for being disrespectful by criticizing the Bush Administration)

Also, When the comedian Russel Brand criticized the "Jonas Brothers" for wearing purity rings, many people on the Right foamed at the mouth and demanded him to take back his "attack on moral values."Yet, many of those same people claim that they hated "political correctness." Ironic, huh?

Many people on the Right would justified an opinion that criticized any non-white ethnic group and their problems(Especially those who belong to a non-Eastern Asian group) by saying that people shouldn't be so PC yet when Obama's Pastor criticized American and white people for their problems last year, many of those same people on the Right condemned Obama(Even though Obama himself have stated that he does not hold the same viewpoint as his pastor) and his pastor for being "racist" and offensive" for criticizing America and white people. Not to mention that they get pissed if Obama didn't readily salute the American flag or wear his "American flag pin" at all times. Talk about inconsistency.

Some people on the Right would even tell a Gay relative and his or her spouse not to mention that they are Gay for the sake of not "offending" people in their Church or family. Now THAT" a contradiction to their "Anti PC" stance if I ever seen one.

This is jut the tip of the iceberg, but my premise is that being PC is something that is practiced by both the extreme Right and Left. Yes some of you might say "BUT QUASIMODOSUNDAY ALL THE EXAMPLES YOU'VE JUT CITED ATTACKED THE PEOPLE ON THE RIGHT.THAT MAKES YOU SO BIASED FOR THE LEFT, YOU DIRTY COMMIE LOL!!!!"However, the reason I only criticize the Right is because the Left are the people who are often the ones solely and unfairly accused of being PC while ignoring the fact the the Right are just as PC but are able to get away scot-free simply because they're usually not accosiated by the average person of being PC(The same thing works with the "Intolerance" where the Right is often accused for being "intolerant" while ignoring the fact that the Left can be as "Intolerant as the Right)Thus I did this in a way to raise "awareness" of that often ignored observation. Believe me, I have butted heads with extreme leftist people and they piss me off as much as the extreme right wing people

This is why I hate politics.

Politics in the US are a huge act anyway, left or right don't matter. People on both sides act like idiots and go extreme to make people feel like they have something to blame for any problems in their society.

That's not being PC. PC talk is performed by every major political institution.

I thought it was already an established fact that anyone who has extremist views about anything is a crazy hypocrite.
