Communism or authoritarian government speech enforcements.
I agree with whichever the majority of people say :0
Political correctness should be banned in the name of free speech.

Perhaps an actor or radio commentator is a better analogy. To go after sponsors and advertisers seems to violate a higher code and limits free speech. Yes, I know that I am allowed to do this but why use free speech to try and take away someone else's speech?
I remember back in the 80's when PC began to migrate off the campus of the University of Wisconsin - the birthplace of PC. I was working construction back then - a most unPC environment, and we all got such a kick out of how ridiculous it all was - afterall, no rational person would embrace such nonsense.
But alas, here we are 30 years later, and PC is a sad reality that no one can escape. In true Gramscian fashion, the progressives were able to inject this poison into our institutions, most notably public (government) education, and year by year they expanded their attacks until today nothing can be done or said that is not scrutinized and ultimately signed off on by the PC police.
Today, you can literally lose your livelihood simply by saying something that is unPC - cameras everywhere, ears perked and at the ready to register offense, public shaming, government sanction, etc... it's truly sick; but to the indoctrinated, they see none of it.
It's all too sad and pathetic - I hate that my children have to grow up in a country like this. We are living in Orwell's 1984.
Sometimes you can get in trouble for something simply because someone's feelings were hurt.
