There is no more protected and valued ideology (according to the self-appointed gurus of language, thought and policy) than Islam. Yes, the ancient doctrine of pedophilia, decapitation and rape is considered the crown jewel of political correctness.
Despite Islam's well documented history of warfare and subjugation, it has been protected by these gurus who spuriously laud it as a religion of tolerance, inclusiveness and peaceful teachings.
And, of course, these gurus include Western leaders such as David Cameron, Angela Merkel and Barack Obama. Not to mention a host of other politicos such as Chris Christie, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio that pay open homage to Islam while excoriating those who attempt to engage in the most tepid forms of constructive criticism.
Remember, not only did Gov. Christie support the Ground Zero Mosque, but he also hyperventilated against any individuals that spoke out against sharia law by referring to them as 'crazies.' He has never hesitated to wax eloquent about the so-called virtues and boundless tolerance of Islam while hosting Iftar dinners at the New Jersey State Capitol.
And who can forget what can be considered the pinnacle of political correctness when Barack Obama (while addressing the UN General Assembly in 2012) uttered the following words: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
This statement was not only a brutal affront to the First Amendment, but it was also a blatant endorsement of sharia law by the leader of the free world. Yes - this statement was a chilling example of political correctness gone mad.
Sadly, even the US military has engaged in political correctness in order to protect Islam. After being questioned by CNN about the rapidly shrinking Christian community in Iraq due to relentless attacks by ISIS, Col. Steven Warren stated that "ISIL doesn't care if you're a Christian ... We've seen no specific evidence of a specific targeting towards Christians."
With all due respect Colonel: are you out of your mind?
ISIS has neither hidden nor obfuscated the fact that it targets Christians because (as it has publicly stated) the Koran and 'prophet' command it. That's why the Islamic terror organization has released several videos of Christians being executed for their faith by its very own operatives.
In the final analysis, I believe the main reason Islam is the crown jewel of political correctness is due to the following: the majority of its followers are 'people of color', thus making them (to the gurus) a victim class.
And the gurus will do what ever it takes to protect their precious victims - even if it means sugarcoating a savage ideology built on rape, pillage and plunder.
God save the West from the gurus of political correctness (and their crown jewel).
