Re: Re: The War on Terror Offends Muslims
Please excuse me while I wipe the stuff pouring out of my nose.
At Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer reports on the wisdom of DHS’s Charles Allen and his objection to the phrase “War on Terror”: “[It] has nothing to do with political correctness[.]… It is interpreted in the Muslim world as a war on Islam and we don’t need this.”
Earth to Chuck: Political correctness refers to the resistance from descriptions of reality because of the way they may be perceived by groups to whom our elites have decided to be hyper-sympathetic. That is, DHS’s language purge is classic political correctness. And to those of us who’ve been there, it’s embarrassing.
