I refute letters like Tracy Abell’s and Mary McWilliams’ about Michael Alcorn’s language and use of “Wuhan Virus” as “politically incorrect.” Even Bill Maher thinks this is wrong as he stated at the end of a recent episode, and he hates Trump. It’s always been “political correct” to name a virus after its point of origin as these diseases have generally killed great numbers of people worldwide no matter its origins.There are too many examples to list. Political correctness here is being used as an attack on First Amendment rights.
No political system has ever been proven to be totally correct or for everyone. Political correctness is one-sided thinking and discrimination like homophobia, racism, sexism orthe like. It’s just another labeling system like these other terms and used to denigrate and demean others. Political correctness is now more representative of “Political Corruption” or “Political Criminality.” It’s my opinion that many federal, state and local politicians and the media are using this pandemic to steal more from every American than since this country’s constitutional founding.
Today many Americans want nothing more for our free American society but totalitarian controls and our governments paying for all we do.The problem already found with this system is it’s unsustainable. The only way governments work is by respecting all citizens, their efforts and economic inputs.
