It’s official! According to Dennis Miller, a conservative leaning American stand-up comedian and political commentator, “Names now hurt us more than sticks and stones.” It’s the dawn of a new age, the age of the oh-so-easily offended!
These mindless PC zombies are an extremely aggravating breed with very little useful purpose on the planet that I can see … I mean other than destroying our country and our culture. They are mindless drones who only know one thing … what offends them. A prime example are to two reporters who heckled Donald Trump and Jeb Bush for using the term “anchor babies” on separate occasions. It seems neither reporter could come up with a viable alternative for the term, but both were so obviously offended by the term that I thought I could even hear their bones breaking!
It is odd that these folks are so often the ones lecturing to us about the utmost importance of “freedom of speech,” but yet they’re the first to shoot down the opinions of anyone brave enough to express a point of view that isn’t identical to theirs. It’s the height of hypocrisy to yell stridently about freedom of speech and then ruthlessly attack anyone who say anything you disagree with or don’t want to hear.
I think these folks need a little mental toughness instilled in them. Perhaps we should capture them, tie them to a chair and force them to repeatedly watch Grand Torino until they see the error of their ways. Just saying!
We have devolved into the most whiniest, most thin-skinned, easily-offended society in history! Americans have become a nation of cry-babies! We have developed a unlimited capacity for being offended and, it has become our national pastime.
