Contrary to popular conservative belief, political correctness is not a solely left-wing phenomenon.
Examples of conservative correctness:
frankfurters became "hot dogs" during world war I
french fries became freedom fries in 2003
David Horowitz's "Academic Bill of Rights"
attempts to "teach the controversy" by creationists in biology courses, and global warming deniers in environmental science courses
Any number of campaigns against plays or films, such as Life of Brian or Jesus Christ Superstar, on the grounds that they are "offensive to Christians;" conservative Catholic groups are particularly fond of this tactic
Encouragement of anti-gay activists to eschew the words "gay" and "homosexual" in favor of such phrases as "unnatural vice" and "anti-Christian"
Global warming deniers whining about being called "deniers." They prefer the term "skeptic."
"Enhanced interrogation techniques"
Atheist billboards are seen as insensitive to Christians.
Republicans changing the names of committees in the House of Representatives to change "labor" to "workforce" and remove any mention of "civil rights"
Free speech zones
The Dixie Chicks causing controversy by criticizing George Bush
ward churchill getting blasted to high heavens for insulting innocent americans (although this was definitely justified)
The whole fox news "war on christmas" nonsense
Conservatives are just as PC as liberals!
