Liberal Lunacy and Free Speech: TalkGOP 26

LiberalLunacy &FreeSpeechIn this episode I discuss liberal political correctness run amok.  Liberals are using various forms of political correctness to suppress free speech and control what Americans say and think.

Political Correctness on Campus

  • Microagressions – small discriminatory actions by the majority.  So small in fact, that you don’t even know you are doing them?
  • Safe Spaces – Locations where only certain people, words, and thoughts are allowed. Here’s a hint: you are not invited.
  • Trigger Warnings – Did you know college students are too frail to hear intellectual ideas that liberals disagree with?
  • Gender-neutral language  – Never mind the grammar you were taught in school. You have to refer to everyone by their proper gender. If you can figure out which one they are without offending anyone.

Big problems with PC doctrine:

  • It’s opposed to free speech.
  • It wields OFFENSE as a weapon.
  • It’s intentionally divisive.
  • It’s unforgiving and encourages hate.

The Conservative Response

  • Call out the silliness.
  • Turn the tables.
  • Discuss and practice true tolerance,
  • Encourage grace and good manners
  • Speak out against true evil.
