Poll: 71% of Americans Say Political Correctness
Has Silenced Discussions Society Needs to
Have, 58% Have Political Views
They’re Afraid to Share

Cato Institute, by Emily Ekins

Original Article

Posted By:zephyrgirl, 10/31/2017 1:48:25 PM

The Cato 2017 Free Speech and Tolerance Survey, a new national poll of 2,300 U.S. adults, finds that 71% Americans believe that political correctness has silenced important discussions our society needs to have. The consequences are personal—58% of Americans believe the political climate prevents them from sharing their own political beliefs. Democrats are unique, however, in that a slim majority (53%) do not feel the need to self-censor. Conversely, strong majorities of Republicans (73%) and independents (58%) say they keep some political beliefs to themselves.

Comments:
I know I keep mine to myself. I´ve been the recipient of too many vicious liberal attacks. I know I can´t change their minds, so I just change the subject.

The PC Nazis have won. The goal has always beent to eleiminate free speech and suppress opposing views. It appears the PC Nazis have succeeded beyond their wildest expectations.

And this is why the polls are always wrong and why the Democrats will continue to lose. No one has to share their views in the polling booth. They can vote their beliefs without fear of repercussion.

#1 is correct.
It´s part of the plan/agenda.

Same with low voter turnout which enables fewer and fewer to affect the outcome desired.

Look at how the liberals are so upset by some speaker who holds contrary opinions/views? How they need safe spaces.

Who´s pushing this narrative(story)? The anarchists and the progressives?

Well they don’t have to share their opinions as long as they get their say-in the end by voting for the most unpolitically correct politician ever to land in Washington, DC, President Trump.

That´s right because if they do express themselves, the left attacks them physically and verbally and emotionally. The left is a violent group of thugs who get their way by force. Sound familiar? Think about Communist China, Russia, Cuba and Venezuela. We are headed that way unless we can keep on voting them out.

Living near SF in California, you learn to keep your politics to yourself. Right now it is worse than I have ever seen in my life. I thought the Bush years were bad, but they are nothing compared to now.

Until the universities are shut down Political Correctness will continue winning. Republicans occupy most state legislatures and governorships, the presidency and both houses of congress and nothing has changed in the PC industry. Churches cave. Schools cave. NFL owners cave. Stop the money flow to universities.

Early on, candidate Trump said he had no time for political correctness. That´s one of the reasons I voted for him. I, too, have no time for political correctness.

Brings to mind this little gem: Political correctness is the belief that you can pick up a t*** by the clean end.

Just look at what Political Correctness has done to the NFL! After eight weeks of this crap Tinkerbell is still holding Roger Goodfernuthin´s spine for ransom, the owners continue wandering around in the rough looking for their balls, the 49ers and the Browns still can’t suck enough and oddly enough there are still no White Supremacists, Nazis or Klansmen marching down Martin Luther King Blvd!
Gee Wally, imagine that!!
The adults in the NFL have taken a powder and it should clearly demonstrate that Radical, bomb-throwing Leftists are doing everything they can to fracture our fundamental principles to divide and destroy everything America stands for in the name of “victimhood” and fabricated “racism”!
It´s "Network" time folks.
Time to get up now, go to the window, open it and shout out: "I´m mad as Hell and not going to take it any more!!"

This is news? The whole point of political correctness is to silence anyone who disagrees with leftist, progressive, communist ideology. As previous posters have mentioned it has worked beyond their wildest dreams.

Politics, religion and money have been on the list of no-no discussion topics (in social settings) for many long years… Prudent advice.

The ´socialist´ doctor charged with cracking Senator Rand Paul´s ribs in a crunching blindside tackle may have harbored a secret grudge against his GOP neighbor for spoiling his lakeside views and ´devaluing´ his home, DailyMail.com can reveal. Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn´t been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressman´s trees were ´in the way´. It´s believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Paul´s property that blocks the doctor´s views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated

Roger Goodell has demanded $50million per year and a private jet for life in order to stay on as NFL chairman, it has been reported. Goodell made the demands in a written counterproposal to the six-man NFL Compensation Committee which is due to debate his pay package on Monday, sources told ESPN. Earlier this year all 32 NFL team owners voted to renew Goodell´s contract, which runs until 2019, and nominated the committee to negotiate on their behalf. But amid plummeting viewer numbers and anger over anthem protests, some owners are now fighting to take matters back into their own hands. Jerry

WEST CHESTER, Ohio—He swings the golf club like a right-hander, which he is, but putts as a southpaw. Maybe it’s a metaphor for a conservative politician who often turned to liberals in crunch time, but I’m too busy losing $20 on this hole to appreciate it. We’re on the green now, surveying his 10-foot par attempt, a modest breeze transporting his tobacco cologne.

Though Western Europe and Washington are reluctant to fess up to this unfortunate fact, Turkey under Recep Tayyip Erdogan has long ago given up even the pretence of being a democratic polity and is openly pursuing policies detrimental to democracy, the rule of law and Western security considerations. In short, Turkey has become an Islamist dictatorship every bit as inimical to Western interests as Iran, except for being allowed by the West to maintain the charade that it is still a member of NATO and the Western community of nations. This is a dangerous charade that will inevitably come back

New York — An upcoming memoir from Sen. John McCain has taken on new meaning since he first decided to write it. “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations” is scheduled to come out in April, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Friday. The publisher quietly signed up the book in February, without any formal announcement. In July, McCain disclosed he had been diagnosed with brain cancer and last month he said the prognosis was “very poor.” McCain, 81, was re-elected to a sixth term in the Senate in 2016. “This memoir will be about what matters most to him,

Republicans are confronting a growing revolt from their top donors, who are cutting off the party in protest over its inability to get anything done. Tensions reached a boiling point at a recent dinner at the home of Los Angeles billionaire Robert Day. In full view of around two dozen guests, Thomas Wachtell, a retired oil and gas investor and party contributor, delivered an urgent message to the night’s headliner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: Just do something. Wachtell, who has given tens of thousands of dollars over the years to Senate Republicans, recalled that McConnell responded defensively. Passing legislation

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, saying she knows the "horror" of gun violence all too well, implored lawmakers on Monday to take action after the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas. "I know this feeling of heartbreak and horror too well," Giffords, who was gravely wounded in an assassination attempt six years ago in Arizona, said in a statement. "The massacre in Las Vegas is a grave tragedy for our nation. This must stop — we must stop this."

Former model Leann Tweeden accused Minnesota Sen. Al Franken Thursday of harassing her multiple times during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006. Tweeden alleges that Franken, a writer for Saturday Night Live before he became a Senator, wrote a script that featured him kissing her, and harassed her during rehearsals, Tweeden writes for KABC.

Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though

"Who that has been accused of sexual assault would have the gall to preach to others about sexual misconduct. How infuriating that would be. How tone deaf, Mr. President," Kelly said on NBC´s "Today" show Friday morning. Trump had tweeted Thursday night that Franken should not be advocating for respect of women.

The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special

Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” But she also appeared to signal that what is currently considered a fireable offense may have been more often overlooked during the Clinton era. “Things have changed today, and I think under those

Multiple NFL owners have engaged in discussions about removing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from the league. (Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter. That type of drastic action would require the league showing conduct detrimental to the league—which is exactly the language the league used in its Nov. 15 letter to Jones’s attorney, David Boies.

The Department of Justice will soon commence an investigation to determine whether there should be an investigation (you read that nonsense correctly) of a scandal involving the Clinton Foundation and a company called Uranium One. It appears that FBI decisions made during the time that Hillary Clinton was being investigated for espionage will also be investigated to see whether there should be an investigation to determine whether she was properly investigated. (Again, you read that nonsense correctly.) Only the government can relate nonsense with a straight face. Here is the back story. When President Donald Trump fired FBI Director Jim Comey last
