„Political correctness is going to kill us. Political correctness led to 9/11, political correctness led to Barack Hussein Obama -- political correctness is a societal HIV. (America has) a full-blown case of AIDS and we're the cure.“

—  Mark Williams American conservative activist, radio talk show host and author

April 14, 2010, at a Tea Party Express bus stop in Boston, Massachusetts.

„Political correctness is the natural continuum from the party line.“

—  Doris Lessing British novelist, poet, playwright, librettist, biographer and short story writer 1919 - 2013

The Sunday Times, London (10 May 1992)
Kontextus: Political correctness is the natural continuum from the party line. What we are seeing once again is a self-appointed group of vigilantes imposing their views on others. It is a heritage of communism, but they don't seem to see this.

Ray Bradbury fénykép

„I foresaw political correctness 43 years ago.“

—  Ray Bradbury American writer 1920 - 2012

Playboy interview (1996)
Kontextus: I foresaw political correctness 43 years ago. … whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. … I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is B. S. You can't fool around with the dangerous notion of telling a university what to teach and what not to.

Stephen Colbert fénykép

„Language has always been important in politics, but language is incredibly important to the present political struggle.“

—  Stephen Colbert American political satirist, writer, comedian, television host, and actor 1964

New York Magazine interview http://nymag.com/news/politics/22322/ (16 October 2006)
Kontextus: Language has always been important in politics, but language is incredibly important to the present political struggle. Because if you can establish an atmosphere in which information doesn't mean anything, then there is no objective reality. The first show we did, a year ago, was our thesis statement: What you wish to be true is all that matters, regardless of the facts. Of course, at the time, we thought we were being farcical.
