Political Correctness...still true today!

If you wondered what political correctness is, here is the best definition uttered by one of our best presidents ever.

What is meant by the modern term referred to as ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’... 
The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence , Missouri . The following are copies of four telegrams between 
President Harry Truman and Gen Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945.. 
The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war - not a word has been added or deleted!

(1)  Tokyo , Japan  
0800-September 1,1945 
To: President Harry S Truman 
From: General D A MacArthur

     Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied *******s and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions? 
(2)  Washington , D C 
1300-September 1, 1945 
To: D A MacArthur 
From: H S Truman
     Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!
(3) Tokyo, Japan  
1630-September 1, 1945 
To: H S Truman 
From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz

     Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically 
correct mean? 
(4)  Washington , D C 
2120-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
From: H S Truman
  Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently 
fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and 
promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to 
pick up a piece of  sh it by the clean end!
Now, with special thanks to the Truman 
Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally 
have a full understanding of what ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’ really means...
