    Say whatever you want but don't force others to comply with that.

    What a fine example we have here of correctness thinking...

    You criticize something and it is immediately assumed you "hate" America......

    Patriotism is a disease, a false idol users use to rally others to do their fighting, congressmen whose sons will never face war love to wax on about "patriotism'. and through that, the word has come to mean "love it or leave it"

    I left.

    Loving one's country is not only possible, but desired over "patriotism", as it comes from the heart and is strong enough to see what's wrong and try to fix it. The "patriot" believes its wrong to even see what's wrong.

    Forcing the Washington franchise to change is wrong.....

    I or any 'redskin' is free to choose to ignore their games, no one has the right to take from their right to express themselves.

    Influence comes through knowledge, not law.
    There is no right not to be offended. Once we establish such a right then I will be offended, thus it must be repealed.

    I had a relevant situation occur not too long ago. An individual from the left side of the aisle told me that what I said offended them and that I should't say it again. I quickly informed them that whether or not I said it again was not based on them being offended as that will never be a requirement for me in considering what I say. I didn't really care if they like it or not as that didn't matter when I stated what I believed. They had a choice. They could either get over it or tough sh*t.
    No where in my OP did I imply that someone has to right to impose their will onto another. However a honest discussion that is curtailed by fallacious cop out terms is ridiculous and impedes any form of intellectual discussion.

    How is anybody being forced to do that. Is there a law that I'm unaware of, or is it businesses working off of free market ideology?

    On the other hand, you are trying to force people to say Merry Christmas, right? You don't like Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas, so in the same vein you are trying to do the same thing.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    To me, PC is just not being an asshole. It's about the golden rule of doing as you'd have done to you. Once the insults start flying, all bets are off as far as this place goes.
    Actually, PC is about assholes not wanting someone to hurt their feelings when what was said needed to be said. If someone does something stupid, they should be told it was stupid. While that may not be PC, sometimes the truth hurts and if it does, the best way to change it is to change the truth.
