You've got to be kidding. You want to defend this?

The pc being promoted here is as its _purpose_ meant to muzzle expression
and ideas that are not politic with a self-defined minority. Promoting your
political wants, and critiqueing the opposition's is the essence of
politics. Do it smartly and loudly. What's displayed above is rather the
pernicious technique of casting the opposition's view out of political
argument - it is simply invalid - the boy is sick, and needs
politely-applied duct tape and political/cultural reeducation. And the
unwitting person doesn't even need to be conciously aware of the
contamination! The monitor will inform them when their views or actions are
rooted in their inherent racism, and instruct on its correction. It must be
a heady feeling to be a morally-purified victim, and thus to see those
things so incisively.

Head in the sand: "you guys" means you guys that promote it, and the dislike
is being overwelmingly expressed all over the country and in every election.
