The Positive Reaction to James Harrison’s Stance on Participation Trophies Proves Political Correctness Isn’t Popular

Steelers’ James Harrison Sends Back Sons’ Participation Trophies: ‘Everything in Life Should Be Earned’

PC-in-sportsJames Harrison is not a fan of participation trophies.

The Steelers linebacker had a lot to say on an Instagram post Saturday, after posting a picture of two participation trophies his sons had received.

Harrison went on to say he’s sending back the trophies until “they earn a real trophy.”

“While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I’m sorry I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I’m not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best,” he wrote.

I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I’m sorry I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I’m not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best…cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better…not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues

Political Correctness is not popular

Rush Limbaugh

no-PCNow, this could have gone any number of ways. In our supposedly… It’s an important qualifier there. In our supposedly dominated-by-political correctness world, what should have happened is that James Harrison should have been written out of polite society, because this is a violation of everything. Political correctness has inserted itself in the sense of raising children, in school. There are no winners and there are no losers because they don’t keep score.

There are no starters and there are no bench players because everybody plays.

You get trophies for simply showing up.

We are never allowed to crown champions because not everybody can be one and to do so humiliates those who lose, and we will not do that.

This is supposedly the law of the land.  Supposedly everybody falls in line with it.  And you would think that James Harrison would be just excoriated, just ripped to shreds. But it didn’t happen.  The overwhelming response to James Harrison was overwhelming, unilateral support.  It’s a teachable moment here folks.  I want to take you back.

Now, it happened to be a comment made during the controversial moments of gay marriage, but it relates. You’ll see.  Here it is…

pc-bullyWe Have Been Ruled by a Minority

Political correctness is censorship, it is stifling, and it is bullying, and it’s being practiced by a veritable minority of people!

May 1 commentary

RUSH ARCHIVE: How can such a small number of people come to so dominate the American political system? How can less than a million people cause the havoc that they caused in Indiana recently? How can so few people end up closing down businesses, like flower shops or bakeries or photo shops or what have you. … It’s fascinating to me to watch it transpire and watch hardly any opposition rise up against it. It’s the only way it can happen. No push-back. And it’s exactly what is happening.

We are being run, this country is being run by a veritable minority, and that is of liberalism. Liberals are a minority of thought. The percentage of the country that’s liberal is less than 50. It’s not a majority. But, where are they? They are in the classroom. They’re running colleges, universities, high schools, school systems. They’re running the media: News, movies, books, television shows. So the impression — particularly with the control of the media, the impression is — that they are much larger in number than they are, much more widespread than they are, and much more powerful than they are.

Political correctness is censorship, it is stifling, and it is bullying, and it’s being practiced by a veritable minority of people!

2) Moral Support: Heritage Foundation expands education plans for Congressmen and Senators

heritage-freedom-center-blueprintThe Heritage Foundation is vastly expanding our presence in Washington D.C.—the belly of the beast.

Our headquarters in the heart of Washington, D.C. is just two city blocks from the Senate offices, three city blocks from the Capitol building, and three city blocks from the House offices. It’s from this base that we will wage a policy war with the Left and the Establishment at very close range. In politics, proximity matters. That’s why our physical presence is key and that’s why expansion is critical to future conservative victories.

To beat down Big Government, we need to expand our footprint on Capitol Hill.

heritage-freedom-centerThe Freedom Center will be only blocks from the U.S. Capitol in a remodeled structure already purchased—prime real estate once rented by far-left groups. The modernized Freedom Center will be specifically outfitted for:

  • Educating Congress about how conservative ideas solve today’s problems and help the American people;
  • Reaching the American people with an enhanced media outreach program focused on spreading conservative ideas;
  • Communicating facts to mobilize grassroots Americans;
  • And bringing together conservative groups to coordinate strategy.

3) Congress sends letter on Planned Parenthood Videos

Congress Sends Letter Requesting 7 Specific Things from Planned Parenthood — Note the Last One

As Reported By The Blaze:

abortion-defund-p-parenthoodThe House Oversight Committee on Friday penned a letter to Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards requesting seven documents or pieces of information be handed over by next week.

The letter, authored by Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), noted the series of recent undercover sting videos that purport to show the abortion provider engaging in the sale of aborted fetal parts.

“Recently released videos implicate Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its affiliates in potentially unlawful transactions involving fetal tissue,” the letter said. “In the videos, Planned Parenthood representatives discuss the demand for certain body parts, the manner in which patient consent is solicited, pricing considerations, and the methods by which doctors manipulate procedures to ensure that tissues remain intact.”

It added, “The disturbing content of these videos raises questions as to whether federal funds are being used to finance the potentially illegal conduct described therein.”

The last requested piece of information requires Planned Parenthood to note “what procedures, services, or other medical treatments are available only or exclusively at a Planned Parenthood affiliate or health center that are covered by either a state’s Medicaid program or a health plan sold via a state exchange or HealthCare.gov under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”
