Progressive Paralysis: Eric Holder

Recently, Juan Williams, a former senior national correspondent of NPR stated:

“I think, look, political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don’t address reality.”

One of the clearest examples of this is seen during Attorney General Eric Holder's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on 5/13/2010. During this hearing Mr. Holder was asked if three recent terrorist attacks may have been incited by Radical Islam," which prompted Mr. Holder to uncomfortably dance around an obvious fact for several minutes.

The greatest flaw in political correctness is that it is based in intellectual dishonesty, which leads to ineffective strategies to address very real problems. And for this reason, educated and intelligent liberals pursue many deeply flawed policies in issues ranging from education, to economics, especially when they involve sensitive topics like race and religion.
