She makes some very good points. Political correctness has gone too far if it disallows you to solve problems with radicalism within any group.

Is that the average american politician? a hysterical, racist housewife, that verifies their propaganda with grotesque allegations and finally says

It is time, we take political correctness and throw it in the garbage, where it belongs


talking so much bullshit in that short time really deserves applause!

Yup - nice speech, and bullet-proof point of view, however your whole "fantastic" impression will probably be ruined after you listen to:

the brigitte/gabriel person simply can't listen and has no logic to what she says. It's just populism and marketing. nothing more.. I'm not judging the muslim girl nor islam though. I don't know who she is, nor what's the "truth/lies" part about. still, the convers-ehh-monologue's level is embarrassing..

When coalition forces invaded Iraq in 2003, the peaceful majority was irrelevant. They still managed to kill 100,000 people.

Yes the peaceful majority is irrelevant. Because of people like her.

On a sidenote:

Political correctness and equality enforcement is not a joke it's a disaster. If a company CEO doesn't like any nationality it should be his and only his decision whether to hire somebody from that nationality or not. If he doesn't like their nationality, race, religion or haircut, he will get grumpy, lose motivation or get angry all the time and in consequence lose money due to lowered productivity. Of course it doesn't seem fair if you are a perfectly educated ginger, or pole, or jew, or black or woman or simply an asshole or whoever else and somebody prefers to hire less educated person, who is more to his subjective liking, but he should be able to hire him instead and doesn't owe you shit. Deal with it. It's ridiculous so many people try to sue employers who rejected them during recruitment.

my 0.02 on what PC has lead to in america, and what is starting to be seen here on the old continent.. I know the principles behind it all were noble etc, but it's gone way off right now..

This is cerainly the civil rights issue of the 21st century. CEOs are prevented from being productive! Any spare minute they get between interviewing job applicants is spent in their office with their head in their hands. Or in culturally diverse strategy meeting trying to work out innovative ways to stop ginger people applying for jobs, lest the CEO be forced to hire them personally.

And all anyone seems do is make jokes about it! BBC3 is being overwhelmed by a glut of satirists depicting prejudicial hiring practices. Why cant people see that this is ruining CEOs lives? CEOs are people too...

ghengis and fridge are serious. When you say that misogyny is the only strongly embedded and overtly practiced discrimination, this is the refutation i should point out to you.

Myhand was taking ghengis' premise that 'you respect people as people until they show themselves to be undeserving of respect', and then using reductio ad absurdum. He implied that you had shown yourself as undeserving of respect, and therefore there was nothing stopping him from discriminating against you! He can call you any offenseive thing he wants and not be breaking ghengis' rule. Thereby showing the flaw in ghengis' position and sneaking in a little x-beating to boot.

The last line is directed at fridge and ghengis and all the other libertarian fuckwits who no doubt read the forum.

I don't think it a flaw. People will gather their senses and discover ways to once again gain respect from others. Rock bottom is a nice place to start, but the further down you go , the more potential energy you gather to jump back up. But don't use this principal with dollars money.

Haha. The potential energy is generated if youre moving away from the baseline respect that the average employer thinks someone like you deserves. The point is that the baseline for a woman/immigrant/old person/gay etc is much lower than the baseline for people like yourself. That is what discrimination means.

but genghis says people should be respected as people, which is pretty much what political correctness is ...

and fridge is advocating discrimination against poles even though he is a pole looking for a job in another country ...

and myhand is insulting me which I assume to be sincere, but then he is insulting me by calling me a gayloving commie which is what he is ...

X - as a matter of fact i have been offered two of the jobs in the UK i've been trying to get, unfortunately neither of the positions met my wages goals, so for the time being i am staying here, in PL. I will come back to recruitment in a few weeks, but for now, I'm way to busy and have to sort a few things out before moving on :) Plus salary aside, i really enjoy both jobs i currently have - one because of what i do there, and the other because of who i work with.

As for political correctness, yes - I was serious. In my opinion - if somebody rejects me just because I am a pole, we would not get along at work anyways, so i'm all in for cutting the crap and letting them hire somebody else. It goes both ways. if you want to hire a sexy attendant, yeah - why not. It's, or at least should be only up to the recruiter who are they looking for. As a matter of fact - i would be more than grateful if they included a note "no Arabs, no Poles, and no Russians please" or something along those lines as apart from their, it would also respect my time, which i could spend to tweak my CV aiming for another position instead of wasting on sth i will never get..

Honesty > Political correctness

I prefer playing a game knowing all the rules, to being rejected on the same basis, but being told some pretexts and pathetic, obviously false excuses.. Different theme, same issue: Imagine a girl rejecting you saying the classic "you are to good for me". Wouldn't you rather hear "your feet smell funny and you really embarrass me with your shitty musical taste" instead? She will either reject you or the relationship would be miserable and break up anyways, so why trying to stay polite instead of being honest?

As for equality, or it's illusions - deal with it - people will never be trully equal neither in the eyes of others, nor in the reality. Equality doesn't exist, and if somebody says he treats people equally it's only partially true. He will tell different people the same things, but deep inside he will still consider his prejudice and stereotypes, while maybe - just maybe trying to balance it out with calculating it against their resumes (as far as recruitment is concerned).

no idea if what i wrote is understandable in english.. sorry. I'm very tired after work..
