Why are the likes of BPS surprised?
Even as such a reactionary speaks, or is read, or watched – as he invades PC discourse – the politically correct can feel their life draining away, can sense the world receding, can perceive the delusional world crumbling, the void yawning.
Hence the viciousness, the panicked attack using anything to hand which might work: ad homineminventions (immediately believed as facts), fantasied motivations, lies of any and every kind and even violence (at second hand – regretted, maybe, but not condemned).
For the PC it is vitally necessary to control discourse, to exclude all hostile communications if possible, immediately to stop them if they break through. There can be no delay – effective dissent must be shouted-down, mocked, vilified, shut-up; the politically correct must switch-off, turn-away, gabble and gossip to drown or silence the hostile discourse; instruct, direct and unleash the mob – then begin again to rebuild the thought prison of PC discourse by their own words, in their own image.
