The term, 'Politically Correct' came into use in the early seventies amid

2. – c
3. ‘Make a pretty woman your wife’
4. Tina Turner
5. New York City and Chicago

7. Hippocrates
8. 'Mars Attacks'

In the early-to-mid 20th century, the phrase "politically correct" was used
to describe strict adherence to a range of ideological orthodoxies. In 1934,
The New York Times reported that Nazi Germany was granting reporting permits
"only to pure 'Aryans' whose opinions are politically correct."

As Marxist-Leninist movements gained political power, the phrase came to be
associated with accusations of dogmatic application of doctrine, in debates
between American Communists and American Socialists. It was used by Socialists against Communists, and was meant to separate out Socialists who believed in egalitarian moral ideas from dogmatic Communists who would advocate and defend party positions regardless of their moral substance.
According to American educator Herbert Kohl, writing about debates in New York in the late 1940s and early 1950s, the term "politically correct" was used disparagingly, to refer to someone whose loyalty to the CP line overrode compassion, and led to bad politics.
