Political Correctness and the Real American

As usual, when people forget history, they get stupid. Even before that Trump Chump declared war on political correctness, a growing number of malcontents decried its existence and used it as a rallying cry for the like-minded. But let’s not forget the state of affairs that preceded the advent of the dreaded p.c. Like being called nigger or spic or gook or wop or kraut or kike or mackerel snapper or towelhead as though that was your family, genus and species. Or being called faggot as you’re getting the hell beaten out of you for having the audacity to be yourself.

You never wanted to be president. You never thought you had a chance – along with the majority of the voting public. Which is why you were so unprepared to assume office.
