Political Correctness per Harry Truman

This is Priceless

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 bastards 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 shit 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.....

Thanks Marc
