Political Correctness?

We recently honored our military dead on the Anniversary of Pearl Harbor.  typically we refer to this day as the day Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.  We coined terms representing other dates in American History:  VJ Day, VE Day, D Day,  Boston Massacre, and Spanish-American War.  Or we annotate specific groups in time, such as Women’s Suffrage, Women’s Lib, Black Power, Nazi Germany or Fascist Italy.  We learn of Bleeding Kansas, Whiskey Rebellion, Spanish Flu, the Red Scare, Protestant Reformation, Mormonism, or Jews.  Why do we not refer to the people who attacked us with 911?

We have the term “Etymology” for periods of time:  Ancient Greece, Ming Dynasty, Dark Ages or Industrial Revolution.  Other than the term “911” how do we remember the event?  Societal pressures and even our Federal Government will not acknowledge “Jihad”, “Muslim Extremists”, or “Muslim Radicals” when referring to this day in American History.

We facilitate our society with acronyms for one reason or another.  Heck we created thee term “TLA” for Three letter Acronym and generally most know what the acronym represents.  Ah we are not limited to a TLA, no…we utilize 2, 4, and even five letter acronyms.  Do you know these acronyms?   AD, HIV, BC, Xmas, DOE, DOD, VA, NHS, KFC, BK, TV, AAA, DOA, MIP, MADD, VIP, NE, TX, FUBAR, ABC, NFL, IT, OMG, LOL, LMAOROFL … you grasp the concept.The Federal Government at USA.gov lists the UC San Diego website for learning Federal acronyms (http://libguides.ucsd.edu/content.php?pid=275227&sid=2268671).  So “911” falls “TLA” line.

Political Correctness inhibits us from referring or associating anything “911” with the term Muslim.

Uncle Sam was Crying... Now he's out to change Washington.

The government is not responsible for you; you are responsible for “yourself.” “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves”…
