Thanks to our politically correct climate in modern day America there are large groups of people that it’s perfectly OK to bash with no expectation of retaliation.

No one is really sure how these particular groups achieved such unenviable status but feel free to pontificate against any of the following groups as much as you like. They probably deserve it.


We send them tons of money every year. Never mind that they are the freest and most prosperous area in the Middle East, they’re mean to the Palestinians. Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, and Libya are all off limits. Can’t speak badly of those terrorist-supporting nations that we also send tons of money to. If we do they will stop accepting speaking gigs at our colleges and universities. But Israel? Feel Free.

White Christian Males

This group of overly religious zealots is the worst. Telling everyone to live a restricted life. No porn, no gay marriage, no adultery, in short — no fun.

But don’t think for one second that you are allowed to speak ill of Sharia Law unless you want to be labeled a bigot. Under Sharia Law, no porn that’s for sure, no gays that’s for sure, no adultery either, yet those folks are the champions of the Islamic states but they are still off limits.

Fox News

FOX LIES! FOX LIES! You’ll hear that simple declarative at every left wing demonstration across this land. Yet in spite of all of Fox News lies and distortions of the news they are so far ahead of number two in cable news ratings it’s ridiculous.

Abraham Lincoln so eloquently said, “You can fool some of the people all of the time, you can all the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.” Apparently Fox News can because they have been number one all day, every day, for years. So either Abe was wrong and you can, “fool all the people all the time,” or perhaps the ones yelling, “FOX LIES” are the one’s being fooled.

Tea Party

This one’s a no brainer. Uphold the constitution, lower taxes? — What balderdash. We all know handouts are the secret to American prosperity. The more food stamps the better. It’s always open season on the toothless hicks. Those knuckle dragging right wing, NASCAR watching, country music listening trailer trash.

But don’t even think of bashing “Occupy Wall Street.” The youth of America championing the cause of poor and middle America against the crooks and thieves of capitalism. Never mind that taxes from these giants are funding their student loans and their parents pension plans and 401(k)’s.

They park their corporation made cars, text their propaganda on their corporate made cell phones and iPads, while trashing the very country that gives them the ability and freedom to demonstrate and get a quality education. The same values the Tea Party is fighting for.

Some Final Thoughts

Rodney King is famous for saying, “Can’t we all just get along?” Not until we are willing to consider other points of view we can’t. We have “Cool Hand Luke” syndrome — “failure to communicate.” It’s really tough to defend your point of view if you are unwilling to listen and consider opposing views of others. A closed mind is a lot like an umbrella; not of much use until you open it.
