Censorship woes

Some sheriff (with apparently nothing better to do) recently went viral when he threatened a pickup truck owner with legal action over an anti-Trump sticker. I’m not the first one to point this out, but right-wing attempts to censor free speech are covered much differently than (alleged) left-wing attempts to do the same to right-wing speech.

A recent study by Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting found that The New York Times alone–a supposedly left-wing source–was wildly biased in its reporting of campus speech issues:

Over the past 18 months, the New York Times has dedicated 21 columns and articles to the subject of conservatives’ free speech on campus, while only three covered the silencing of college liberals or leftists. A review of Times articles, columns, op-eds and reports shows a clear emphasis on documenting and condemning perceived suppression of conservative voices at American universities, while rarely mentioning harassment campaigns against leftist professors and/or the criminalization of leftist causes such as the pro-Palestinian BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanctions) movement.

In reality, political correctness does not exist. Conversations about language have always existed. “Political correctness” is a term designed to denigrate people on the left by making them seem out of touch and overzealous.

Unlike a sheriff threatening a citizen over a window sticker, of course!!
