"Recently fostered"? I thought it came from 1945.

And thanks to Scamp for the Snopes thing. Now I know a 25 cent version of what to call an obviously out of place reference like "the mainstream media" in a supposed 1945 telegram: A "neologism"

"S", no matter what you post, isn't this 100 % true: 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!

Once again the clueless rely on "political spin" websites for their "facts".

Snopes is your friend: w ww.snopes.c om/politics/quotes/trumanpc.asp

Sorry to confuse you with FACTS when your (feeble) mind is already MADE UP!

This is what I received right or wrong it sure sounds like old Harry! You tell us the truth.

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 Wildo 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.....

Harry Truman never said any such thing and it should be obvious that a quote purporting to be from 1945 would not contain a reference to the "mainstream media". Jesus.
