THE BERKELEY INTIFADA: Michael J. Totten writes that “A city that prides itself on tolerance and diversity is fast-becoming an epicenter of hate”.
Totten adds, “Political Correctness is finished. What started out as intolerance of hate has become hatred’s enabler. It fails to live up to its own standard and can’t possibly become more absurd than it already is. It slid all the way down the slippery slope and annihilated itself.”
PC kills people. It’s driven a wedge between the news media and the customers it’s supposed to serve. It’s driven a wedge between the blue and red states. It’s driven a wedge between the hard left and more moderate liberals. It’s shrunk Hollywood and the music industry’s audiences. It’s driven a wedge between universities and the people and communities they serve. But while Roger L. Simon says that Totten has written its epitaph, PC is actually far from dead.
