CNEchols, what you said isn't true. Political Correctness is in conservatives just as much as they are in liberals. Your example of MSNBC was not an example of political correctness but an example of MSNBC just distorting the truth to hide something. There's a difference. Fox News also does that as well. In fact an entire documentary shows the tactics that Fox News does
Conservatives always cry about political correctness but they do the same thing
Political correctness (adjectivally, politically correct; both forms commonly abbreviated to PC) is a term which denotes language, ideas, policies, and behavior seen as seeking to minimize social and institutional offense in occupational, gender, racial, cultural, sexual orientation, certain other religions, beliefs or ideologies, disability, and age-related contexts, and, as purported by the term, doing so to an excessive extent. In current usage, the term is primarily pejorative, while the term politically incorrect has been used as an implicitly positive self-description. Examples of the latter include the conservative The Politically Incorrect Guide published by the Regnery editorial house and the television talk show Politically Incorrect. In these cases, the term politically incorrect connotes language, ideas, and behavior unconstrained by a perceived orthodoxy or by concerns about offending or expressing bias regarding various groups of people.
Political correctness happens to conservatives all the time. They are against and get offended at anyone who attacks or questions not just Christianity but any religion. Many Christians censor and get political correct over Islam because many hate Islam. They also want to censor things regarding the military. And they are also politically correct in terms of sex, language, and drugs. These are the political correct things conservatives cry about.
Look at what the right wing media is doing to Occupy, accusing protesters of all of these terrible things when the terrible things that are happening are like 1% of the entire movement and they are all homeless people anyways. Not to mention the cops are sending criminals and sex offenders and even paying some of them to stay in those areas.
But I wouldn't call that Political correctness
And also just for the record, the tea-party while not fully racist has many racists. In fact many followers and leaders/organizers are racists and are part of racist groups and domestic terrorist groups. Many organizers and followers believe in extremist ideology that follows the same exact ideology of these terrorist groups. So terrible things and horrible things have happened under the tea-party as well but to a worse extent.
