Political Correctness Per Harry S Truman….

> What is meant by the modern term referred to as ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’..
> The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum
> in Independence, Missouri. The following are copies of four telegrams between
> President Harry Truman and Gen Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual
> signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945..  The contents of
> those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war – not a
> word has been added or deleted!
> (1) Tokyo, Japan
> 0800-September 1,1945
> To: President Harry S Truman
> From: General D A MacArthur
>      Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied bastards and sign the Surrender
> Documents, any last minute instructions?
> (2) Washington, D C
> 1300-September 1, 1945
> To: D A MacArthur
> From: H S Truman:
> Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!
> (3) Tokyo, Japan
> 1630-September 1, 1945
> To: H S Truman
> From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz
>      Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?
> (4) Washington, D C
> 2120-September 1, 1945
> To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
> From: H S Truman
>      Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!
