In "Delusions of the Politically Correct", Ruth Marcus at the Washington Post gets it right:
To ignore the religious nature of the terrorist threat is to succumb to politically correct delusion. To ignore the homegrown religious nature of the terrorist threat is to succumb even further.

She is speaking, of course, about all the recent outrage and vitriol emanating from the political left and directed at Peter King (R, NY), the Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, because he dares to have hearings in Congress about radicalization in the Muslim community:
To listen to King's critics, you would think he was urging modern-day internment camps for Muslim Americans. In a letter to King Monday, more than 50 progressive groups slammed him for "singling out a particular community for examination in what appears to be little more than a political show-trial."

She calls this attitude a "parody" of political correctness. I just would call it plain old simple and stupid political correctness in all its glorious idiocy.
