“Why are all these idiots mad?”
“I don’t play colleges, but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC.’” ~Jerry Seinfeld (source)
There are a few things wrong with that statement.
First, second-hand bigotry is the worst. “I don’t know any of these people, but I hear they’re just awful,” is not something a reasonable person would ever say.
Second, and more importantly, whenever I hear someone complain about “political correctness” it raises a red flag. More often than not these are people who have said something offensive, and instead of taking responsibility for it they would rather cast themselves as Fearless Defenders of Free Speech™.
That’s easier on their egos than admitting that they may have been acting like jerks.
