What is it that is wrong about political correctness?

There's a really good write-up here about the annoying properties of "Political Correctness", and how the meaning of the term is being misused, and even used to justify exclusion or a way to get desired behavior.

Here's a response to the article I found interesting -

Suzanne Walsh, Mother, intellectual, and lover of all things chocolate -
"It's often used as a shield by  some extreme liberals (as opposed to your common liberals) to shut down  opposing ideas and stifle free speech - particularly on college campuses."

It's more than a simple stifling of free speech.... It's the f*****g extreme leftist lunatics attempting to turn the US into a communist China.

Re: What is it that is wrong about political correctness?

Yes, that's a possibility, but doesn't it seem more likely just a social trend that is soon to wear off?  I was listening to NPR, and they discussed social trends in the way that people talk and pronounce things.  There are cultural trends as well, such as being a scenester, skater, etc... I feel that social justice and the politically correct is simply a trend.  Not that it's not helping in many cases, but I feel it might disappear like hammer pants.
