What “politically correct” means

When smart people say stupid things, it’s stupider than when a stupid person does it.

“A liberal is someone who cares if something is true. A smart person, a conservative, just believes what he or she knows to be true. A conservative is not politically correct.”

Wrong. Political correctness means saying something is true when it is not so, in order to benefit one’s worldview.

Ted Cruz had the Worst Week in Washington
