Every time a public person expresses an opinion not adored by the hacks behind the free-form desks, the backing water of the hapless expressor throws up a roostertail. They simply, out of fear of what the leftist media are going to say about their opinions, cannot backpedal and apologize fast enough. Since when has this been the thing to do?
How much longer are we going to bite off a mile of tongue before we say what SHOULD be said in favor of what the media will accept? How much longer will we be considering our opinions as “unapproved” speech? Approved by whom? We have allowed the leftist media to dictate to us what we can say on any topic. Why are we letting the media scare us into silence and/or craven whimpering? US?? Us Americans?? Hello? What planet is this?
We have been watching our words in public ever since this administration took over, and it has only gotten worse as time has gone by. I said years ago on the original predecessor to the Sourdough that political correctness was going to be the death of this country. If this isn’t evidence of that, as well as all the other “apologies” that have been cravenly produced by weenies who should either have stood by their words or kept their opinions to themselves, I don’t know what is. I have NEVER seen Americans run away from leftists and political hacks. So, why is it happening now? When did prominent Americans become such a fearful bunch of cowardly weenies?
This should not be, America!
