Will "political correctness" kill classic movies?
We can all be found "politically incorrect" by somebody's
standard.   Those easily offended and those trying to stop other people from doing things they
do not like sit squarely at the top
of the politically-incorrect list.
Most of the people being offended by perceived politically-incorrectness also are offended by President Donald Trump.   President Trump is one of the half-dozen greatest Presidents the U.S. has ever had.
By that you can judge the offensiveness of the ones who do not like him.

As the Democrats go Left
The leftís efforts to propagandize the American people into believing falsehoods and disbelieving truth have deep roots. - As do crushing dissent; college campuses routinely denying access to conservative guest speakers; trying to impose policies which Americans overwhelmingly oppose, by manipulating the rules and just plain lying.   Faced with positions that cannot win a majority of the American people, the Left is increasingly trying to crush the debate rather than win the debate.

Fear drives his attackers - AG Barr's probe could affect powerful Dems
"We have to stop using the criminal-justice process as a political weapon," Mr. Barr said Wednesday.   The line didn't get much notice, but that worthy goal increasingly looks to be a reason Mr. Barr accepted this unpleasant job.   Stopping this abuse requires understanding how it started.   The liberal establishment, including journalists friendly with it, doesn't want that to happen, and so has made it a mission to destroy Mr. Barr.   The attorney general seems to know what he's up against, and remains undeterred.   That's the sort of steely will necessary to right the ship at the Justice Department and the FBI.
President Trump tells House Dems:   "It's over"
Former FBI Director James Comey, Trump told Herridge, "probably was one of the people leading the effort on spying" on his campaign.   Trump said we "will find out pretty soon" the extent of Comey's involvement.
Barr skips House Committee hearing; Dems flail in frustration
What Dems left in their wake after Hill hysteria -- defeat, desperation, fear
Democrats are so afraid of an attorney general - finally - manifestly willing to do his duty to expose the rot, corruption, mendacity, and betrayals in our law enforcement apparatus working hand in hand with political partisans in the media and in elected government, that they are taking ever-riskier gambles.
North Carolina Republican Senator Thom Tillis decried that the "new normal" seems to be that if there is no legal basis for indictment, Democrats go back and indict for political reasons and if Democrats are not able to do that, they attack the integrity of the messenger - Barr, Horowitz, anyone who contradicts the mantra.

America the Productive
- New reports show U.S. workers getting more done and receiving better pay
"We seem to recall the Trump White House arguing in 2017 that a cut in the corporate income tax rate would increase incentives for businesses to invest in making their workers more productive, which would in turn lift wages.   To be fair, the White House was making the case that such progress would happen over the long haul, not immediately.   So itís too early to render a final judgment, but so far so good." - But that is what we are seeing.

Bret Easton Ellis tells 'spoiled children' liberals to deal with Trump:
'He was elected president. Get over it.'
Calling those who reached adulthood around the start of the 21st century "Generation Wuss", he blasts their "oversensitivity, their sense of entitlement, their insistence they were always right despite sometimes overwhelming proof to the contrary, their joint tendencies of overreaction and passive-aggressive possibility."   This, he argues, has been fostered by "overprotective, helicopter moms and dads mapping their every move" while "smothering their kids and not teaching them how to deal with life's hardships ... people might not like you, this person will not love you back, kids are really cruel, work sucks, it's hard to be good at something, your days will be made up of failure and disappointment, you're not talented, people suffer, people grow older, people die."   Ellis diagnoses a growing inability to accept or even listen to [other] viewpoints. [...] The media became so freaked out that they abandoned the hallmarks of neutrality and perspective. [...] When you're roiling in childish rage, the first thing you lose is judgment, and then comes common sense.   And finally you lose your mind and along with that, your freedom.

Dems rage against AG Barr for investigating illegal spying by FBI
One top House Democrat charged that Barr is not acting "in the best interest of the DOJ or the country."
What does that mean?   Investigating possible corruption is not in the country's best interest???   Or is it not in your best interest?   What is it you want to keep covered up?
Maybe it's this:
Greg Craig, ex-Obama White House counsel, indicted for alleged false statements
Under Hillary, this wouldn't have happened.   That was the whole idea.   It would've just continued - and gotten worse.
"The Washington-based lawyer was indicted by a grand jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia for allegedly falsifying and concealing 'material facts' and making false statements to the DOJ National Security Division's Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) Unit, which is responsible for enforcing foreign lobbying laws."
"FARA violations were only rarely prosecuted until Mueller took aim at Manafort for his own lobbying work in Ukraine.   [...]   Craig left Skadden [the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom] last year after his work with Manafort became public.   In January, Skadden agreed to cooperate with the DOJ's registration requirements and paid $4.6 million in a settlement to avoid a criminal prosecution."
FBI employees received 'improper' gifts from reporters, routinely leaked to media without authorization: IG report
"Numerous FBI employees accepted inappropriate gifts from reporters and routinely spoke to media outlets without authorization during the Hillary Clinton email probe"
"The IG identified dozens of FBI officials who spoke to reporters without permission, including several special agents, special agents in charge, secretaries management and program analysts, attorneys, an 'FBI executive,' a deputy assistant director and an assistant director."
