Free Speech: Quotes Against Political Correctness

Free Speech: Quotes Against Political CorrectnessBefore the term "politically correct," there was a term known as "freedom of speech" – and every American had it. When our voices are silenced, our freedoms, our Constitution and our country are all at stake. These quotes challenge the mainstream media's demand for political correctness.

“Political correctness is tyranny with a happy face.”

“Why does the left hate free speech? Because they don't know how to talk about the substantive merits when they are challenged. Having submerged themselves in disciplining each other by denouncing any heretics in their midst, they find themselves overwhelmed and outnumbered in America, where there is vibrant debate about all sorts of things they don't know how to begin to talk about. They resort to stomping their feet and shouting "shut up"... when they aren't prissily imploring everyone to be "civil."”

“Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it.”

“Those who call for censorship in the name of the oppressed ought to recognize it is never the oppressed who determine the bounds of censorship.”

“The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information.”

“I believe that political correctness can be a form of linguistic fascism, and it sends shivers down the spine of my generation who went to war against fascism.”

“Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by the mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

“If someone succeeds in provoking you, realize that your mind is complicit in the provocation.”

“A joke is either funny or it's not funny. If I hear a funny joke, you know what I do? I laugh, that's what I do. I don't start a focus group to see who got hurt by the joke.”

“There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running around with lit matches.”

Ray Bradbury, speaking on current culture in the afterword of the 50th anniversary addition of Fahrenheit 451

“Political tags – such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth – are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.”
