As many of you know, the stench of political correctness has been sweeping the nation.
It’s one of the big reasons Donald Trump got elected. People were tired of hearing the same old thing from the media and their elected politicians. They wanted someone who could speak what was on their mind and stand up for them. Instead, their politicians went to Washington and forgot all about them.
But during Donald Trump’s campaign, he demonstrated that he is very strongly against political correctness.
In fact, he’s felt that way throughout his entire career as a businessman and celebrity – as watching any clip from the Apprentice should handily prove.
Unfortunately, political correctness has even begun to spread into our military – the Air Force. Fox News received a copy of an email from that was written by a Senior Air Force leader and sent to members of Lackland Air Force Base. The body of the email instructed Airmen to be, “Cognizant that such conduct is 100 percent zero tolerance in or outside of the work climate… Let’s capitalize on our richly diverse climate, and help others seek assistance if they are struggling with compliance.”
The attached list of words included a variety of offensive or racially charged words and phrases, but it also contained the words “boy,” “girl,” “Colonial,” “Blackmail,” and “Sounds Greek to me.” My first problem with this is that under the 1st Amendment, everyone has the right to free speech. But the second thing I take issue with is the fact that these words are not even offensive.
This is exactly why we need President Trump – to help free our country from the plague of political correctness and suppression of free speech under the 1st Amendment.

Based on my interpretation of the email, it’s pretty clear that Airmen have been advised not to use those words in any sort of context – on or off base.
So I reached out the public affairs office at Lackland to find out why they had a problem with the words boy and girl. Was it true that the Air Force had banned those words?
“The Air Force has no list of prohibited terms,” a public affairs spokesperson told me. “It was sent out by an individual simply reminding Airmen to be respectful to others.”
