Political Correctness.





The contents of four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war.  Not a word has been added, edited, 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, DC 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!.”

Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’ really means.

Spread the love
