More on Political Correctness Eradication

I agree with Rodney on this one. Yesterday I thought this position was some sort of joke, but it looks like Mapp is taking it seriously.

Why now? I think the prevalence of "political correct" policies is already in decline, probably because of Clark's altered political strategy after Brash's Orewa I speech.

As to the lefties who believe there is no such thing as "political correctness": that phrase is used by many New Zealanders who aren't members of a political party or follow politics on the blogs. If you can't understand why the rest of us dislike, for example, a public sector job description requiring "Knowledge of the Treaty of Waitangi" then you are part of the problem.

Have to say Cullen will gobble them up and spit them out on the first day in the house. Stupid and Stupider.

I think that the PC mindset is just so insidious among the bureaucracy, and how they administer policy, that it does need a quite brutal counter-balance. All of the social policy agencies are beseiged by trite nonsense that pervades the rest of society.

Quite often I will say something, and somebody will reply: "That's not very PC."

I will respond with: "What did you fucking EXPECT me to say? Do I look like some kind of frigging hippy happy-clappy liberal pinko clone to you?"

Mapp and Brash will have to articulate it better than they did yesterday. Their efforts were comic and embarrassing in the extreme. The basis of non pc is that unless plain speaking is allowed, clear thinking is denied. If you can't even begin to articulate what you mean by the expression then you are in trouble.
