"United States of the Easily Offended"
Incredible speech regarding the current state of “free speech” , opinions, ideas, critical thinking and all the fake outrage from the media & easily offended special interest groups. It’s a bit long, but it’s well worth it; especially if you value any sort of creative freedom.
In a country that USED TO pride itself on individual freedoms & liberties, it’s sad to see so many companies and the popular media condemn people for their lawful freedoms & ideas. And it’s only getting worse. It seems like every few days there’s another whiny special interest group in the media crying “offence” at the smallest things from simple words, sports team mascots, car names, all the way to political views from people’s pasts. When does it end? Do we have to give up words or communication all together just to make sure someone somewhere isn’t “offended”?
