Re: Re: The War on Terror Offends Muslims

Please excuse me while I wipe the stuff pouring out of my nose.

At Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer reports on the wisdom of DHS’s Charles Allen and his objection to the phrase “War on Terror”:  “[It] has nothing to do with political correctness[.]…  It is interpreted in the Muslim world as a war on Islam and we don’t need this.”

Earth to Chuck:  Political correctness refers to the resistance from descriptions of reality because of the way they may be perceived by groups to whom our elites have decided to be hyper-sympathetic.  That is, DHS’s language purge is classic political correctness.  And to those of us who’ve been there, it’s embarrassing.
