Trump's win was a crushing blow to political correctness

What happens to political correctness when its ability to bully everyone into silence comes to an end? The Donald Trump victory signals that it is coming to an end. Strange as it may seem for someone like me to say, if it came to a complete end, that would be a bad thing because the basic instinct of political correctness is good; protect minorities.
The problem with political correctness is that it has completely overreached. By shouting 'bigot' too often, by completely failing to distinguish between reasonable and unreasonable critics, it is getting closer to wearing out the power of the word 'bigot'. It's not there yet by any means, but give it a few more years.
In addition, in its eagerness to protect minorities it has covered up some terrible abuses perpetrated by those same minorities, including sexual abuse (just like the Church did), and voter fraud.
