Video: John Cleese on Comedy and PC

He makes the Boomer era error of thinking there was Nice PC.
No, as the top comment says, PC is fascism. It tries to control people’s speech.
PC allows wastrels to cow others verbally when they’re too chicken to do it physically. It’s the carrot, betraying an Or Else stick.
It’s no different than threatening to punch someone in the face, except they’d survive a punch better than a threat to their reputation (the defamation of you’re an XYZ) and livelihood (including criminal record).
PC was never nice and the Slippery Slope is not a fallacy in politics because Overton Window.
It’s a frenemy. It seems nice at first but stabs you in the back once you’ve agreed to its premise.
Namely, that you are responsible for the actions of another person.
This is very specific.
You are responsible for YOUR words. But they are just words and not acts of violence.
You are NOT responsible for the way they make OTHER people feel. You are not responsible for their brain.
You are NOT responsible for another person’s emotional incontinence. They may choose to associate with you or not and if they want someone to leave, it should be the person with the problem (i.e. them).
The crybullies aren’t offended, they are outraged.
It is repressed rage at others and their fun, hence they start on comedy.

‘And a fellow who I helped write two books about psychology and psychiatry was a renowned psychiatrist called Robert Skinner said something very interesting to me. He said, “If people can’t control their own emotions then they have to start trying to control other people’s behavior.”

In fact, the Right is more sensitive than the Left.
For example, this BS about people in bathrooms. The Left are sensitive to the adult wishing to impose themselves for the sake of their delusion. They refuse to attend an empty bathroom so it’s about the imposition onto other’s rights, like privacy, in a bathroom (reasonable expectation). The Right, to counter, is sensitive to the rights and right of freedom of association and expectation of modesty being respected of everyone else present, but especially children who can get upset at minor things. The Left cares about the adult’s distress more than a child’s. Consider school bathrooms.
These Little Hitlers, the Speech Police, get a thrill out of controlling others.
They will say anything, they argue from bad faith. They don’t believe what they say and this is why contradiction doesn’t bother them. SJWs Always Lie.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
