    I'm trying to think of something more un-American than political correctness and it's just not coming to me.

    Democracy is a pitfall the founding fathers warned us about, they formed a Republic.

    Note that traditional liberals are lumped in with the middle to define the mainstream majority while traditional conservatives are bundled with the further right and “far outside the American mainstream”. Not surprising coming from The Atlantic where a living constitution is the norm and originalism the philosophy of fuds.
    ditto

    reality is nobody but the left like PC culture ? its that simple

    Yeah, but it's the people on the extremes that vote - of the most importance is that they vote in primaries, which means they're picking our "choices" for us. It's a poorly kept secret that the real races anymore are the primaries. I'm somewhere between "moderate" and "traditional conservative", but I vote in every election - local, primaries, generals, all of them. It may not matter when the fringes are turning out en masse, but I'll be damned if I don't do my small part.

    Might be a logical fallacy, but there has to be some correlation between being more educated and being more likely to accept PC culture, vis a vis the number of people on the fringes (both sides, but mainly left) who make up academia. I spent 7 years in higher education and it only made me more likely to vote Republican, so I'm not sure what inference I can draw from that. I was also 25 when I went back for post-grad and had spent 3 years working, so maybe that made a difference. I wasn't spoon fed liberal shit straight through and actually had to pay taxes in the interim. I do like to try and look at things objectively and have an intelligent debate about stuff, but anymore you don't know how someone is going to take something you've said unintendedly or who else is listening and does the same. So, the easiest choice is just to not have these discussions at all and then the fringes fill the vacuum.

    Those are not the issues people on the right care about or even think about.
    Depends on what you're calling the "right". If you're talking about "devoted conservatives", then sure, but I think that's part of the point, anyway; it's also why they'll never actually get anything to change because they can't at least comprehend how those might be issues. A majority of people are willing to have an intelligent discussion about those issues, but they're not willing to do that if there's a chance they'll be labeled a racist, misogynist, etc. for offending someone in the process. If you have any interaction with society, it's hard to shake a label like that, especially if you don't deserve it.

    You can see immigration, the extent of white privilege, and the prevalence of sexual harassment as real issues and not be a progressive activist or even a traditional liberal. I'll grant that they're not high on my priorities list, but I wouldn't pretend they're not issues.

    I strongly ignore it. And if some PC wuss wants to give me a hard time, I go full Archie on 'em.
