What is meant by the modern term referred to as ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESSS’..

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, becausesome 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.....

I love it.  However, a search of the TrumanLiberry provides no such dialog.  Too bad, because it's essentially the troot.

I get the feeling that the Trump group is maneuvering the Obamates onto a killing ground. Trumps appointments are making pucker rings and his staff is saying "go ahead and take it to the supreme court we are waiting for you."

I've always heard that quote with the word "turd" instead of "piece of shit"; I think "turd" is more characteristic of Harry. BTW, thanks for properly rendering his name as "Harry S Truman", without a period after the "S". That "S" is not an initial; Harry's middle name was "S". The "S" never stood for anything, and therefore doesn't take a period. He was even known as "Harry 'S for Nothing' Truman". And yet, even in his hometown of Independence, MO, there are signs that put a period after the "S".
