More PC twittery

Godwins 'Law'

The PC set love this- the idea that anyone who makes comparison to Hitler or the Nazis in general has automatically 'lost' the argument.

Some annoying little twat (who is not worthy of linking) pulled this card over at Whaleoils blog the other day, confirming MY theory that anyone that invokes Godwins Law has no penis.

Originally, this 'Law' was referring to hyperbole and has been adopted by the shirt-lifters of the left, irked at the inconvenient comparisons of their heroes to the swastika-wearing socialists. (It's OK to make reference to Bushchimphitler, mind.

I think what stings most is that these comparisons are getting frighteningly close to truth and are no longer hyperbole. The obsession with erosion of rights, suppression of freedom of speech- need I go on!

This has become another insidious bit of PC- the attempt to shut down discussion the moment someone is labeled a brown shirt wearer.

The PC set take the view that anyone who criticizes or labels a practice PC is uninformed, ignorant and uneducated.

BULLSHIT. The average Trev on the street has a pretty fair idea what PC is and he doesn't like it- even if he can't describe it.

He probably hasn't heard of Godwins law but could clearly and concisely tell you where to stick it!

If you call something what it isn't, you're being dishonest; ergo, pc is - by definition - lying.

Does my heart good to see that I'm not the only one with a case of the ass against the pc crowd.
