Yes, and applying the PC label to someone you disagree with is basically a
covert way of telling them to shut up. Frankly, I'm sick of the PC meme. While
it may have had some rhetorical value at some point, it has now been overused
and abused to the point of worthlessness. If all we can do when debating with
someone who disagrees with us is accuse them of being PC, well, we need to
brush up on our debating skills. (This tactic is used by people of all
political persuasions.)
