PC Policing and the Outrage Wars

by Michael Polzella

When Guy Benson and I wrote “End of Discussion” in 2015, we were certain there’d be a backlash against ultra-PC policing of language and beliefs. We didn’t know it would come so fast or its name would be President Donald Trump.

As cultural judgment trickled down from public figures to private Facebook pages and consequences escalated from shaming to economic costs, many Americans felt bullied.

Now, many have to figure out if they want to double down on silencing tactics in the face of a truly unique political leader who’s equal parts sickness and remedy in the outrage wars.
