A lot of individuals are so worried about being politically correct. I’d rather go ahead and say what’s on my mind than to sit there and come up with some PC ‘Oh, the guy is a great fighter and I have a lot of respect for him.’ If I don’t mean it, why is it even coming out of my mouth?
If they wish to alleviate the sufferings of the exploited classes, let them live up to their pretensions, let them abandon the academy and go out there and work politically and economically and in a humanitarian spirit.

We want a vernacular in art. No mere verbal or formal agreement, or dead level of uniformity but that comprehensive and harmonizing unity with individual variety which can be developed among people politically and socially free.

Mike Royko
You wouldn’t expect ABC or any of the mainstream networks to take a position on immigration, health care, anything. But at Univision, it’s different. We are pro-immigrant. That’s our audience, and people depend on us. When we are better represented politically, that role for us will recede.

Environmentalism is the powerful new secular religion and politically correct scientists are its high priests, rescuing the planet from the apocalypse of climate change, as the Doomsday clock ticks down.

Bernard Marcus
‘Narcos’ was a very strong experience, not only artistically and politically, but as a human being.

Environmental change is leaving the poorest countries vulnerable. Voters are becoming more and more politically polarised and partisan.
I think it accrues to Hawaii‘s benefit that I have friends in Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin. We’re already geographically isolated, so it’s really critical that we don’t become politically isolated.

Maybe politically it wasn’t wise but when people have different view points I think the public has a right to hear it and the public has a right to make decisions based on those view points.

Sometimes, being a feminist artist, there are times where I’m in a position where I just want to feel like I’m saying all the right things politically, or I feel like I have to mention my own project over other people’s projects. But I don’t do that anymore. I just want to be off the cuff and honest.
I just think that it’s strong and it’s important that we recognize what the Christmas season is about; it’s about the birth of our Savior, and there’s a lot of pressure today to be politically correct, but people are realizing, too, that you have to be open to express your faith what you want believe.
I know it’s politically incorrect but I enjoy things like the kick boxing and cock fighting.
June Jordan, who died of cancer in 2002, was a brilliant, fierce, radical, and frequently furious poet. We were friends for thirty years.

It is crucial that there is a government in Madrid secu

Why didn’t we recognize how much it bothered them spiritually and politically?
I would say Politically Incorrect is my favourite right now.

Crony capitalism is much easier than competing in an open market. But it erodes our overall standard of living and stifles entrepreneurs by rewarding the politically favored rather than those who provide what consumers want.
Doing what you thought was right for the country, rather than what was politically expedient, seems almost as quaint now as having civil disagreements with those whose viewpoints differ from your own.
I think stutterers are funny. And I know it’s rude and politically incorrect to laugh at stutterers. But I think it is okay because I know why they’re funny. They make people nervous. People think, when on earth are they going to get the word out, so they start laughing out of their own nervousness.

Some of the policy measures that are important are politically difficult if taken independent of actions by others in support of common goals. Joint actions are therefore needed, and establishing a G-11 with an effective role for the IMF provides the viable way forward.

Donald Trump
If someone is going to permit me to make a publication that is politically and culturally progressive and not tell me to put their favorite movie stars on the cover, if I get to do what I want in an honest way – as I did in the beginning at ‘Colors‘ – then I’m going to do it.
Tibor Kalman
Like other conflict-affected regions, Africa continues to see religious, ethnic, and politically motivated conflicts. Extremist violence is now entrenched in several parts of the world. Armed conflicts are leading to protracted refugee crises to the scale that has not been seen since World War II.
Building a rainy-day fund during good times may not be politically popular, but it can pay off during the bad times.

Politically, the ultraorthodox represent a small portio

Politically, the ultraorthodox represent a small portion of the Israeli society.
My being bought as a politically outspoken artist is a more potent advertising tool for Apple than a 100 more explicit ads.

It’s not that I’m afraid to be tagged with the label of right-wing or even centre-right; I just don’t believe it properly describes either the choice that we face politically or what I’m trying to say.

I am political. But not politically active. I’m not my dad. I’ll never write polemic, as he did.
Kate Thompson
You’re saying ‘will it become politically unpopular to have the position I’m having.’ If it does, so be it.
Google is a private company. It has the capacity to utilize its massive power for whatever political agenda it chooses. But for it to pretend to be an advocate for Internet freedom while simultaneously disadvantaging messages it finds politically incorrect is deeply hypocritical.
Without an understanding of history, we are politically, culturally and socially impoverished. If we sacrifice history to economic pressures or to budget cuts, we will lose a part of who we are.

I’ve been studying the Constitution for myself but also as a way for me, as a Democrat, to comprehend the Right. I think it’s important that people who are politically active understand both sides.
