I'll be honest, I did support the idea of political correctness, increase multiculturalism, socialism, gun control, legal marijuana (actually neutral) and some other Leftist stuff in the past.
But you must understand it's not necessarily I wanted per-se or crazy for in the same way as a SJW. Believe or not, I've been 'peer-pressured' agreeing those stuff.
Even before Trump back when Bush was president, I hear people, even Europeans, saying negative things about America mostly regarding the Iraq War, saying how Americans are violent, intolerant, and stupid. And sometimes say how 'Eurocentric' our movies are. At the time, I almost feel shamed to be an American, I would have began hating America.
So I was thinking if we Americans become less American and more multicultural, people around the world would stop making fun of us for who we are.
I don't know about you or other people, I'm just not the type who can't handle negative criticism, bullying, shaming, and humiliation.
I can stomach it but it eats me slowly and quietly.
Have you've seen the South Park episode "The City Part of Town"? The townspeople of South Park started accepting political correctness just after Mr. Garrison announce running for president and Jimmy Fallon making fun of the town as a town of dumb gun-toting rednecks. The next morning, they feel shame or guilty about themselves thinking that's what the whole country or even world thinks of them.
Well, all it take is one bad joke.
