On the track "My God" from the 'Aqualung' album, Ian Anderson aimed the following words at organized religion - but they apply splendidly to political correctness :

Confessing to the endless sin,
The endless whining sounds

Alas the word "Liberal" has been hijacked by a bunch of authoritarians.

The fightback is on against this "PC" controlled speech "shout an ism" at someone nonsense...you may not like some of the bearers of this message but I think we are in for a major correction soon, in fact it's already happening and people like Trudeau are just behind the curve.

The pendulum always swings back... it goes way to far one way then starts to swing sharply back, sadly, this sharp PC swing has made a generation of people unable to take a joke, or strong enough to accept criticism in any way. Life is hard, and when the reality of that hits many of these young people they just aren't ready for it.. I feel bad for them actually, I was lucky enough to grow up in a time where everyone made fun of each other, the "locker room" talk....it taught us to be able to laugh at ourselves and to grow thicker skin..did we say things that were totally out of line... sure we did, but we all moved on...now TRUE "hate speech" is something quite different...and we must be able to differentiate between the two, "razzing" and "Hate Speech" are not the same.. but this PC world wrongly lumps them together

As the word GUT might be deemed offensive to overweight people you really should change your name to ABDOMEN

The day is coming GUT
