Passing Thoughts Of A Mad Priest ( on political correctness )

Political correctness has completely removed gradation from what society regards as offensive. When you equate Joe Biden whispering in a woman’s ear with Harvey Weinstein’s sexual predation or react to a member of Parliament saying “coloured” instead of “black” in exactly the same way that you would react to a call to shoot migrants trying to cross the English Channel, then you have levelled out society’s reaction to the offensive to such an extent that you have no way of effectively dealing with the obscenely offensive, such as Trump’s attack on three black congresswomen yesterday. So many people have been accused of fascism that calling somebody a fascist, even when they are being dangerously fascistic, is nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
