Patriotically correct, that is, the most common and most oppressive form of political correctness in our post-9/11 world. From this morning’s speech:
But the remarks [by Rev. Jeremiah Wright] that have caused this recent firestorm werenâ€™t simply controversial. They werenâ€™t simply a religious leaderâ€™s effort to speak out against perceived injustice. Instead, they expressed a profoundly distorted view of this country â€“ a view that sees white racism as endemic, and that elevates what is wrong with America above all that we know is right with America; a view that sees the conflicts in the Middle East as rooted primarily in the actions of stalwart allies like Israel, instead of emanating from the perverse and hateful ideologies of radical Islam.
Pure PC piffle. As for the rest of the speech, eh, not so bad. As Jesse Walker noted,
If you don’t have a friend — a real friend, someone who means something to you and sometimes influences your decisions — who occasionally expresses a nutty opinion (“The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color”) or an impolitic truth (“a country and a culture controlled by rich white people”), then you really, really need to get out more.
