The other day I heard the perfect name for the climate we live in: The Outrage Generation
To me, the manifesto looks something like this:
“Say or do something we don’t think is acceptable, or offends one person, and we are coming after you.
Say one thing the doesn’t meet our current politically correct stance, and we are coming after you.
We will ask for your opinion, or an honest discussion, but it is really a trap, we are coming after you.
We don’t care if it was a joke, a mistake, a slip of the tongue, an honest opinion, or malicious - it is all the same to us.
We will make you apologize and beg forgiveness - but even then, we will come after you.
We will label you a racist, a bigot, a misogynist, or a bully.
We will come after your job and career - you no longer have the right to make a living for you and your family, because you have offended us.
We will get you fired.
We will hide behind the banner of “the market has spoken”, when we are really relying on the modern lack of corporate loyalty to it’s employees, and the desire to avoid any controversy.
We will remind people that the 1st Amendment only applies to the government - we can and will silence anyone we want.
We have the right to not be offended by anything we see or hear, and that trumps any and all rights you have.
We are the new PC Police, and we are more powerful than ever.”

Evan just walked like 6 feet. I think we officially (and finally) have a walker.
