I'm going to assume this applies equally to the idiot thugs who seem to think they have some 'right' NOT to be offended by cartoons or speech. This would include the Christian 'fundies-faction' as well as the Islamic fundies. They don't - period. There's no such thing as a right NOT to be offended - at least not since the Spanish Inquisition.

Political Correctness is a large scale gag order. Ignore it and tell it like it is...

ANTIFA is today one of the despicable "self-appointed group of vigilantes imposing their views on others.”

Robert, Somewhere in the USA

I think we all know what group of vigilantes she is referring too! and as the subject is taboo I will leave it to you....
