Memo to so-called Conservative Republicans: Political Correctness is ALREADY entrenched in the GOP for years.

I find this article in The Hill both amusing and annoying because if there are so-called conservative GOPers who are only now noticing political correctness within the GOP, they need to immediately leave the party.
  Just go away because you are too stupid and dense to be any good for the Republican Party let alone the country. 

The reason we have a Trump phenomenon is BRCAUSE of the entrenched political correctness in the GOP.  If this is a concept that is only being grasped by some at this date in time, just tear up your GOP registration card, go home, have a nice life, and leave the party to those who know better.   

The Hill reports conservative Republicans are worried that political correctness is creeping into their party.

They point to the decision by a House committee to replace 50 state flags — including Mississippi’s, which is emblazoned with the Confederate battle flag — with 50 state coins from the U.S. mint.

Separately, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) sidestepped the controversy this week raging over a North Carolina law barring transgender people from using bathrooms that do not match their born sex, saying he didn’t know enough about what he said was a state proposal.

And while conservative Republicans grumble that President Obama’s decision to pull Andrew Jackson off the front of the $20 bill is playing politics with currency, they feel there’s scant motivation in their ranks to stop him.

“Political correctness has crept into the Capitol,” said David Bozell, president of ForAmerica, a conservative advocacy group.

Brian Darling, a conservative Republican strategist, accused House GOP leaders of caving in to the PC police.

“The House making the decision to take down all the flags so the Mississippi flag is not in the Capitol is a sign of political correctness,” he said. “Until the people of Mississippi decide they want to change it, Congress should fly the state flag.”

Taking umbrage at the “PC police” has been a go-to card for conservatives for years.
It’s been used to great success in this year’s presidential race by Donald Trump, the frontrunner for the party’s nomination.
