Here’s how political correctness works.
Let’s say I hold up my fingers and ask you how many of them you see.
The factually correct answer is 2; the politically correct answer is 3, or whatever I want it to be.
If you answer “2,” then I will torture you. If you persist in answering 2, I will torture you more.
Once you are broken and reply, “3,” I will have you do it publicly, on TV, and recant your previous answer.
Then I will execute you.
Coming soon to political theater near you.
