The success of our American republic is our ability to discuss and debate the great issues of the day. It is not that we all must conform to one view of the world. The Constitution of the United States is designed to protect the liberty of the individual against a tyranny of the state or the masses.
Unfortunately, today’s left does not see the value of individual liberty, but rather they value a conformity to a set of politically correct ideas. From Dr. Seuss to Mr. Potato Head, no one or no thing is safe from the left’s wrath. Nationally, we are seeing a purge of anything the left finds offensive. You can no longer watch The Muppet Show without enduring a warning about potentially offensive content. Countless celebrities have had their careers threatened or destroyed for the crime of expressing a “wrong” opinion, or even for not condemning someone else’s wrong opinion. Just look to Chris Harrison or Sharon Osbourne for examples of the latter.
