Rowan Besthe's Archives at Politically Constipated

Have you ever thought political correctness has run amok? That government has become overly burdensome? Too many redundant laws? Agencies and regulations growing by the minute? You’re not alone! All of these congest individual freedom and liberty.

This website is devoted to two things: 1) as the acronym implies, this site is devoted to political correctness run amok and 2) as constipated implies a restriction or blockage, so too is this website devoted to the blockage that is the politics (federal, state, and local) in this nation. In both cases, there is an intended or unintended effect on our freedoms.

Losing America


America as we traditionally view it, and as the founders envisioned it, is all but dead! The concepts of “one nation” and “E Pluribus Unum” (out of many, one) is silently vanishing. And, speak of the American melting pot is now the politically correct defense for protected class segregation. The melting pot analogy worked when […]


He most certainly is not a terrorist


I’ve woken up in bizarro world and it’s devoid of critical thought. Horrible acts have been committed within the homeland over the last several years, and yes they do need to be defined in order to address and correct the root cause. Unfortunately, it took the act of a nutbag racist to define what President […]

More American polarization: Baltimore burns


You say you’re angry and frustrated. You feel profiled, targeted, locked up, persecuted, and exterminated. On the streets in Baltimore and other cities you believe the police are attacking you, but the larger perspective is that white America wishes to perpetrate a racial genocide of the black man. Community leaders continue to frame the issue racially […]


Drop and Run: The politically correct policing policy


Two more police officers have become victims of an assassination attempt fueled by the deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner. While the outcome differed from the two NYPD offices gunned down in their squad car, the sentiment behind the act was similar. Among police, there is a nation-wide plot to actively target […]


Reading between the lines: Echoes of the progressive agenda in Radical Islam


President Obama’s stance towards Christians is no secret. The actions of this Administration are hostile towards Christianity, from the Affordable Care Act to handling the persecution of Christians in Arab countries. President Obama hit the exacta on a politically correct blunder with comments that double down on his belief that the existential threat from radical […]


The enemy of the left is not radical Islam


The left finds it easy to define and label Christians, members of the military, and conservatives, yet it is so difficult for them to define the threat from radical Islam? Saul Alinsky’s rules would have one demean and marginalize a threat. However, these rules are wielded against ideological threats. Given past and current commentary, it is […]


Burying our heads in the sands of politically correct tolerance


Political correctness teaches us not to offend the sensitivities of others. Do not offend! The underlying mantra that masquerades under the guise of tolerance. Unfortunately, tolerance is abused and used to divert attention from the real issues at hand, whether they be racial or ideological. Attempting to focus on the issues, and questioning the intention […]

Thumbnail for 31844

By Kevin Boyd In many major cities like Washington D.C., unfortunately being mugged is a way of life. However, one student at Georgetown University was not only blase about his recent mugging, but actually believes he deserved it because he was “privileged.” According to his op-ed in The Hoya, which is Georgetown University’s school newspaper, […]


American polarization: Ferguson and the great divide


The tumultuous response to the Ferguson, MO Grand Jury verdict in Officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown is a glaring example of the huge divide in America. Not only within the political spectrum, but within all juxtaposed groups the divide in American polarization is drifting apart, farther than the Grand Canyon. The difference of […]
