The original (and good type) of political correctness is just being, well, correct.

No, the original meaning of the phrase "political correctness" was speech used to toe the (Communist party) line. So if by "correct" you mean "self-censorship in the face of a totalitarian government" then yes, you're absolutely right.

That's the origin of the pejorative.
