“Political correctness is fascism pretending to be manners”

"Political correctness is fascism pretending to be manners” is a conservative meme. The book Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning (2008) by Jonah Goldberg popularized the idea that liberal “political correctness” extends privileges to certain favored groups.

“Political correctness is fascism disguised as manners” was cited on Twitter on November 10, 2009. “Political Correctness is FASCISM pretending to be manners” was cited on Twitter on July 25, 2012. An illustration of the yellow smiley face with a Hitler mustache—featured on the cover of Goldberg’s book—was attached to the tweet as a graphic.


Wikipedia: Political correctness
Political correctness (adjectivally, politically correct; both forms commonly abbreviated to PC) is a term that refers to enforced language, ideas, or policies that address perceived discrimination against political, social or economical groups ("protected classes"). These groups most prominently include those defined by gender, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age and disability.
