The Pandemic of Political Correctness

The Pandemic of Political Correctness
By Deborah Lambert

These are not normal times in America. Instead of watching sports, going to restaurants and
buying new cars, we’re staying home, practicing social distancing and spending more time with our families.

However, if there is an unforeseen upside to the Coronavirus pandemic that has affected millions, it is the fact that the pandemic of political correctness – the kind that is on display 24/7 on CNN, MSNBC and thousands of colleges and universities – has been openly revealed as a major league fraud that has conned and bamboozled millions into believing lies and distortions of the truth that should make latter-day hippies swoon in their Birkenstocks.

Unmasking the latest round of political correctness hoaxes has been made possible by Kurt Schlicter, whose witty and irreverent commentaries on point out that suddenly untold “millions of performance artists, diversity consultants, magic crystal healers, sociology TAs, members of the mainstream media, and gender-unspecified entities who brew kale kombucha” have become useless in the world of the Coronavirus syndrome.

What matters these days are facts, i.e. up-to-the-minute statistical data from the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Tracking Maps and daily updates from the president and his highly skilled presidential advisors, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx. No wonder Schlicter concludes that “the people who matter, especially now, are soldiers, nurses, truckers, cops, the guy who stocks the shelves at Ralphs, farmers, and that dude rebuilding your roof.”

But wait, there’s more.

When a pushy contingent of politically correct reporters recently asked President Trump why he was, in effect, peddling racism by referring to the Coronavirus as the “Chinese virus,” the president responded that all pandemics, starting with the Spanish flu, have been identified by the origin of the virus. He then added in no uncertain terms that the reason he calls the current epidemic the “Chinese virus” is because it came from China.

However, in the world according to Schlichter, there’s more at stake these days than pointing out the absurdity of defining a virus by its country of origin. Instead, he doubled down on his belief that “the real hero is the guy who trucks in a load of whole wheat bread, rib-eyes, and low-priced cabernet to Trader Joe’s, not the Prius-piloting sissy with a Maddow fetish who shops there. The people our elite laughed at, scoffed at, poked at, are the very people who are going to rescue us from the mess that same elite helped make.”

“This is when the basics count. Can you build something? Can you do something? And, as our idiot urban overlords insist on releasing criminals because of THE FLU!, can you defend something?”

“If there is an upside to this Chinese coronavirus thing – did I mention the Chinese part? – it is that even the densest libs have to be seeing the truth. Everything they believed in is a lie. The bureaucracy they love has failed. It’s regular folks who are bailing us out. Oh, that won’t stop many of them from telling lies. Lies are all they have. But it will force the rest of us to get serious.” 

Meanwhile, in Schlicter’s world, after opening the door, he couldn’t help noticing “that the media’s soft-peddled virus scenario provided him with an opening to clarify some of “the blurred lines between what is important and what is frivolous garbage.” Perhaps this is why he re-named the Coronavirus as “the Chinese Bat Soup Flu.”
