Going back to my original post re political correctness, surely trying to influence children to be 'gender neutral', removing the word 'Christmas' from cards, taking off labels naming children clothes for 'Girls or 'Boys' and doing something similar for men and women's toilets amongst a host of other stupid ideas is taking this politically correct attitude too far? I do wonder just who these people who dream up this nonsense think they are doing.
Basically their strategy is to take control of the political agenda by manipulating and controlling public opinion.
As I explained in my earlier responses to your original post ''political correctness' is a tool to achieve an end. That end is the pursuance of the interests of the people pushing the political correctness strategy. The approach has been described, amongst others by Karl Liebneckt and Rosa Luxembourg as ''cultural marxism'' and is designed to override the existing norms of society - in the case of Britain today to make the previously unelectable Jeremy Corbyn into an eminently credible Prime Minister, so Labour can win a general election. The Conservatives realise that so they will go down the political correctness route themselves.
Retro parties such as UKIP - the UK Independence Party - fight against this political correctness, so they are seen as a threat to be targeted. They are subjected to smear and covert hate campaigns, not specifically because they are against the European Union but because they threaten the perceived new order. Again the Conservatives will go along with that because there is an electoral advantage for them to do so. That is the real reason why Britain had a snap general election in June called by the Conservatives. However they didn't quite get their timing right, as while they crushed the UKIP vote, the Labour Party was able to use the tactics of political correctness to erode the Conservative and Lib Dem vote and indeed take some of the UKIP vote themselves, so now the Conservative government has lost its House of Commons majority.
Coming back to the quote above - there are similarities here with China during the period of the ''Cultural Revolution'' where we had Chairman Mao's ''Little Red Book'' of correct political thoughts, emphasising amongst other things gender neutrality.
But the Cultural Revolution was actually a reaction to a perceived threat to Mao and his regime from ''revisionists'' who were described as ''capitalist roaders'' and behind this ''revolution'' were the deaths of millions of people cleverly hidden away from media scrutiny and reporting - just like Stalin's purges in the late 1930's.
No, to understand what is going on look behind the smokescreen of the ''loony left'' policies and see who is benefitting, who is controlling the situation.
Then you can see why.
