Political Correctness Avoids Real IssuesPosted: December 9, 2011
There’s an interesting discussion going on at ALIPAC today about liberal political correctness. Liberals want to label “anchor baby” as a bad or “offensive” term in the American Heritage Dictionary.
“Anchor baby” was among roughly 10,000 words — including “hoodie” and “babydaddy” — added to the dictionary’s fifth edition last month. The hot-button term, a noun, was initially defined as: “A child born to a noncitizen mother in a country that grants automatic citizenship to children born on its soil, especially such a child born to parents seeking to secure eventual citizenship for themselves and often other members of their family.”
Is this another step towards criminalizing American ideals? Trying to label our complaints as hate speech? Ignoring the American Public?
