Do Americans Really Dislike Political Correctness?

Recently, Yascha Mounk (Lecturer on government at Harvard University) wrote for The Atlantic (certainly not a bastion of right-wingers) that Americans don't care for the PC Culture.

On social media, the country seems to divide into two neat camps: Call them the woke and the resentful. Team Resentment is manned—pun very much intended—by people who are predominantly old and almost exclusively white. Team Woke is young, likely to be female, and predominantly black, brown, or Asian (though white “allies” do their dutiful part). These teams are roughly equal in number, and they disagree most vehemently, as well as most routinely, about the catchall known as political correctness.

Reality is nothing like this. As scholars Stephen Hawkins, Daniel Yudkin, Miriam Juan-Torres, and Tim Dixon argue in a report published Wednesday, “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape,” most Americans don’t fit into either of these camps. They also share more common ground than the daily fights on social media might suggest—including a general aversion to PC culture.


Perhaps Americans who aren't heavily invested in time and energy with Social Media frown upon the political correct culture. However from recent news it appears that Team Woke is winning. Don't believe me just ask:


Mark Salvas or


Mary Bono or


Michael Rectenwald or


John McAdams.

Most members of the “exhausted majority,” and then some, dislike political correctness. Among the general population, a full 80 percent believe that “political correctness is a problem in our country.” Even young people are uncomfortable with it, including 74 percent ages 24 to 29, and 79 percent under age 24. On this particular issue, the woke are in a clear minority across all ages.

Youth isn’t a good proxy for support of political correctness—and it turns out race isn’t, either.

The victim list of politically incorrect casualties goes on and on. Maybe, just maybe the report is accurate and that Americans are slowly displaying their disgust with PC culture. After all, we politically incorrect deplorables got somebody other than Hillary or Skipper Bill's buttboi as our president.



Speaking of being politically incorrect. Yes, yes I am.
