Skip to comments.New York Mayor tells townspeople free speech must not violate Political Correctness

Mayor Peter Swiderski addressed a letter to the entire village of Hastings on Hudson, New York, making clear his conviction that facts which offend the sensibilities of the left must be condemned as deplorable, hateful and morally repugnant as they do not reflect the ideals of [the] community or of [the] nation.
At issue to the mayor is an ad placed on a series of billboards in Westchester County, Metro-North stations by the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
The ad states that there have been 19,250 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11/01 and counting, and continues on with the fact that, Its not Islamophobia, its Islamorealism. (1)
Oddly enough, Mayor Swiderski does not question the truth of the groups claim. Rather,...

I wonder if this clown could point out “political correctness” in the Bill of Rights to us. I work hard at being politically incorrect and I’m not changing. I’m an “old school” American who believes in the Constitution and the Bill or Rights and I intend to die that way.
Another case where Leftists imitate South Park.
political correctness has always been a more polite tyranny than most of history’s more egrregious ones, but its is rapidly becoming more vicious all the time.
Are my eyes getting old or does that read as: Mayor Swastika...
PC is a creation of the left to quiet truth from being spoken. So we will shout it even the more!
What they will do for a lie, we must do more for truth.
FUPS! You don’t speak for the community, I know people in Hastings. So STFU - I deny you ‘free speech’ as you are trying to deny others of it.
Can’t find any links to articles in that locale’s papers. I like to read comments from the local people.
I beg to differ. It may appear more benign on the surface but PC is pure cultural Marxism -- an attempt to stifle free expression and impose strict Marxist principles via language.
The quote below comes from an Accuracy in Academia essay on PC and I strongly urge everyone here to read the whole thing: The Origins of Political Correctness
"First of all, both are totalitarian ideologies. The totalitarian nature of Political Correctness is revealed nowhere more clearly than on college campuses, many of which at this point are small ivy covered North Koreas, where the student or faculty member who dares to cross any of the lines set up by the gender feminist or the homosexual-rights activists, or the local black or Hispanic group, or any of the other sainted victims groups that PC revolves around, quickly find themselves in judicial trouble.
"Within the small legal system of the college, they face formal charges some star-chamber proceeding and punishment. That is a little look into the future that Political Correctness intends for the nation as a whole."
It would be interesting to know what percentage of the Jewish vote this mayor received in the last election. 90%+ I’ll wager.
Any politician that is openly pro Islamist is an anti Semite. It can be no other way.
Which makes me wonder if American Jews still have any sense of self preservation.
Hastings-on-Hudson is as left wing as you can get. The residents are all from Prospect Park (Brooklyn) and the upper west side. It is one of the most liberal towns in Westchester county.
The local newspaper, Gannett’s The Journal News, is a left-wing rag that is as biased as the New York Times.
I have a photo of the advertisement that Swiderski is referring to. It was paid for in part by Pamela Geller and is in response to the anti-Israel ad placed by a jew-hater a month ago.
Looking for links to help you.
“Politically Correct” is the politically correct term for “F#%$^ing Retarded”.
You, to be less offensive, should say, "'Politically Correct' is the 'socially acceptable' term for 'F#%$^ing mentally differently capacitated'." /S
