"Political correctness is the natural continuum from the party line.
What we are seeing once again is a self-appointed
group of vigilantes imposing their views on others."

Reader comments about this quote:
I'm going to assume this applies equally to the idiot thugs who seem to think they have some 'right' NOT to be offended by cartoons or speech. This would include the Christian 'fundies-faction' as well as the Islamic fundies. They don't - period. There's no such thing as a right NOT to be offended - at least not since the Spanish Inquisition.
