The toxic Trumpist response is “I can say whatever I want, screw you, and I should be able to feel good about it.” It’s another form of political “correctness,” so don’t fool yourself.
Say whatever you want. It’s a free country! Just don’t be surprised of the consequences of antisocial behavior.
This is what I say to people who say political correctness has gone off the edge. Also I think conservatives forget that the right to waive your fist ends a my face.
Many are just mad that you cannot get away with insulting people and get away with it anymore and the right have many snowflakes of their own. Literally there are countless conservatives today can't deal with being made fun of by comedians. The right has just as many snowflakes as the left.
The biggest one being Donald J. Trump who literally wants to take away NBC's broadcasting license when SNL makes fun of him and gets all mad when a re-run airs. They called on Samantha Bee to be fired for a remark she made which was also politically incorrect but really no worse than anything Trump or Judge Jeanie has said. Tucker Carlson loses his mind when a Dutch historian is critical of him. The gf
Also liberals should back off on attacking Chelsea Clinton for a shooting in New Zealand and should also let comedians be comedians but to say the PC police is one sided is a total lie. Protest controversial figures all you want but let them speak because letting idiots talk like Alex Jones, Milo, Anne Coulter makes its solid that they are idiots and fringe people.
There is a huge difference between "I don't agree with what Chelsea/Alex/Milo/Counter etc. say" and "NBC needs to be shut down!" Some of the rhetoric is very dangerous. That almost always comes from the right. Pirro, Jones, Carlson are the biggest and loudest and most dangerous. That the occupant of the White House simply parrots them and the MAGA fan boys follow his lead.
Bernie Sanders finally said what is on everyone's mind: Fox is the propaganda arm of the Republican party. He did NOT say to shut it down.

Obama never demanded Fox be shut down, either. GWB never demanded NBC be shut down. Just this one snowflake is demanding free speech be silenced.
