Political Correctness

The right has its own version of political correctness. It’s just as stifling. - The Washington Post:

But conservatives have their own, nationalist version of PC, their own set of rules regulating speech, behavior and acceptable opinions. I call it “patriotic correctness.” It’s a full-throated, un-nuanced, uncompromising defense of American nationalism, history and cherry-picked ideals. Central to its thesis is the belief that nothing in America can’t be fixed by more patriotism enforced by public shaming, boycotts and policies to cut out foreign and non-American influences.

Yep, you have to watch what you say about Merica, the flag, the military, the constitution, Jesus, or capitalism in the good old USA.
