  1. Concerning PC gone wild in England, I really think that conservatives are to blame for all this bull crap. Over the last 30 or 40 years conservatives have allowed leftists to put this crap down our throats and we don’t do anything about it. It’s nice for murdoc and instapundit to link, and I am sure people reading this will relay this story to their friends and family as proof the left’s totalitarianism. But in the end, will it do any good? I bet we will continue to accept more and more restrictions on our freedoms that would make our Founders roll in their graves.

    Keep in mind I put myself into this category too. I will talk with friends and make a nice long blog post here, but in the end I doubt I’m headed to the streets in angry protest.

    The sad thing is that we’ve all be cowered without guns or the threat of physical violence. It’s not like the leftists have taken over through the barrel of a gun. In fact it is conservatives who are the ones with the guns. It’s not like they are physically intimidating. In fact more conservatives are probably more physically gifted. Most of them are butch women or feminine men who resort to name calling and manning pickets. But evidently that works and the proof is in the pudding.

    At least the poor Russians could claim they were only subdued after tens of millions of them had been murdered, starved and imprisoned by the commissar goons. Yet nothing even remotely on that scale has happened to us and we are becoming just as meek as any citizen under a totalitarian regime.
