Political correctness, a progress report…

“What a curiosity our new political correctness has made of our public spaces. Let your sex tape loose on the Internet and be rewarded with your own TV show; photograph a crucifix in a jar of urine and our museums will vie to exhibit it; occupy someone else’s property and you will be hailed by the president for your keen social conscience.

But call people who blow up, behead and mutilate ‘savage’ – and polite society will find you offensive.” – William McGurn, Wall Street Journal, as quoted here.
