The recent rise in pushes for political correctness boils down to nothing other than control. It’s about micromanaging what people think, believe, and say; it’s not about protecting people’s feelings or otherwise creating a society that is better for everyone to live in. Of course, leftists will never admit this.
With Biden in the White House, the tyrants pushing political correctness and other dangerous agendas are more emboldened than ever. In a nutshell, Biden’s presidency has emboldened the worst of the worst in America. He’s empowered people who have absolutely no regard for the freedoms and rights of individuals.
However, a new poll documented by Breitbart News indicates that even in spite of Biden’s presidency, political correctness remains widely unpopular.
The True Story of Political Correctness in America
As it turns out, most Americans aren’t fans of political correctness. Last week, a Rasmussen Reports poll came out, showing that a strong majority of the nation perceives political correctness as a problem.
To be precise, 65% of Americans have this outlook. That 65% comprises 78% of Republicans, 72% of voters lacking a political affiliation, and 47% of Democrats. These blocs of Americans furthermore expressed their beliefs that political correctness directly endangers the nation’s free speech rights.

Interestingly enough, however, higher-income Americans are less concerned about these matters than their poorer counterparts. Still, some Hollywood big names, such as Megan Fox, Bill Maher, etc., have spoken out against political correctness.
It comes as no surprise that Democrats and leftists have less regard for free speech rights than Republicans and conservatives. That’s nothing more than par for the course in today’s society.
Speaking Truth to Power
At the end of the day, speaking truth to power is the best defense against political correctness in the United States. Speaking truth to power means being honest, even when it’s not always easy or widely popular.
Free speech rights must be upheld in this country. The Biden administration and Democrats everywhere are doing their best to completely shred not just free speech rights, but also other liberties enshrined in the Constitution.

Pushing back against political correctness is an inherent defense against free speech. It also shows those who seek to erode our rights that it won’t work. At the end of the day, freedom is something that always has to be fought for. Right now, the need to defend freedom in all forms is more apparent than ever.
Speaking truth to power now means keeping freedom and liberty later.
