In this episode of the What's Wrong With America? podcast, we discuss #cancelculture and political correctness.
The quasi-religious and totally insane political orthodoxy of the far Left has brought us "safe spaces" and "trigger warnings" and an inability to have grown-up conversations about important issues because the facts could hurt someone's feelings. True Liberals are left scratching their heads in confusion: when did the Left, traditionally the defenders of #freespeech in America, start acting like 17th-century inquisitors and enforcing blasphemy laws? We discuss what's gone wrong, why free speech is important, and the danger of allowing a powerful minority to shut down rational discourse because they don't like contrary opinions.
