  •  This form of political correctness is like (16+ / 0-)

    the conformity imposed by and on the gray flannel suits in the 50's.  The commenter was not "denying" the president, but defending his actions despite disagreements with him on other matters.

    Patriotism may be the last refuge of scoundrels, but religion is assuredly the first.

    •  Not all authoritarians are on the Right ... (3+ / 0-)

      The very term "Politically Correct" comes from the Old Old Left  where it was a term of approval for that which was not  factually, logically, or morally "right" -- but nonetheless did conform to the ideological parameters laid out by The Party ...

      The term UN-PC is quite new.   Back when rocks were soft and Trotsky-ISTs (gaddamit!) roamed the Earth  the antonym of PC was "Deviationalist."

      And don't even get me started on the Unreconstructed Stalinists ...  I had a couple of United Front great uncles who WERE.

      Compared to them, the Grey Flannel MadAve crowd were anarcho-individualists.

      But Godbless His Excellency,  Our Noble President, anyway !

      God save the noble Tsar! President
      Long may he live, in pow’r,
      In happiness,
      In peace to reign!
      Dread of his enemies,
      Faith’s sure defender,
      God save the Tsar! President

    •  I am a huge fan of the president, (2+ / 0-)

      and I am with him on this matter.

      I don't figure I need to go into what I disagree with him on (education, mostly), because who do you agree with ALL the time? Nobody!
