Donald Trump has declared war on political correctness. And suddenly the Washington Post realizes Trump is winning the war.
This is a war that could not be won soon enough. To borrow from one of history’s terms for World War II, the war on political correctness is “the good war.” Here’s an excerpt from the Post story the other day, starting with the headline:

Cathy Cuthbertson once worked at what might be thought of as a command post of political correctness — the campus of a prestigious liberal arts college in Ohio.
“You know, I couldn’t say ‘Merry Christmas.’ And when we wrote things, we couldn’t even say ‘he’ or ‘she,’ because we had transgender. People of color. I mean, we had to watch every word that came out of our mouth, because we were afraid of offending someone, but nobody’s afraid of offending me,” the former administrator said.
