We have made enormous strides in tolerance over the last sixty years. Old prejudices and hatreds have no place in twenty-first century America. Unfortunately, we have seen a rise in self-appointed PC police. They believe they have the right to judge everyone else and that the people they accuse have no rights at all. They have gained power in certain segments of society such as media, education and Silicon Valley. This allows them to fire people for the smallest of offenses. Megyn Kelly is a recent example.
She had the audacity to say that there is a difference between children using makeup to alter their face color and the old practice of white entertainers being made up as blacks in a very offensive way. The PC police were on the job and fired her. I suppose that anyone singing Mary Had a Little Lamb could suffer a similar fate unless they changed the color of the lamb’s fleece.
I find NBC’s ethics very interesting. They fire someone for talking about children’s Halloween makeup yet have no problem deliberately distorting the news. They had information that cast serious doubt about what one of Judge Kavanaugh’s accusers was saying yet chose to leave it out of the story. I guess slandering a judge is more important than reporting the news.
