I try my best to live and let live.

Some would say I am being sensitive about these idiots being sensitive.

But being able to objectively tell when someone is being an PC idiot is part art and part skill. And these students and parents should all be taught the difference between lynching and Lynch. This is almost unbelievable.

Why do so many people go out of their way to be offended?



Because they can, and maybe even get their 15 minutes of fame.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people . A thought, why don't they just "Mandela effect" the word Lynch and the problems solved.

True, stupid people who seem to gravitate to each other.

Look at the anything about the Civil war, on the confederate side is now unmentionable. Do these mental midgets not realize that history is very important and covering it up will give rise to splinter groups who make their own version up?

Oh, just wait. Pretty soon the only reason slavery will have ended is because of the Civil Rights movement. It will be racist to mention that a bunch of white Christians called Abolitionists had a movement in the 1860s to end it and that there was a war touched off partially due to the actions of some old, dead white dude named John Brown.

The mural in the Kansas Capitol building will be deemed offensive and people will demand it be painted over ...

More ridiculousness from the Left.


Same reason people go out of their way to make condemnations.

Either that or they were angling to rename it Barack Obama school or Maxine Waters school or something.

It will also be racist to point out that not every person lynched was black. From 1882 - 1968, whites accounted for 27.3% of recorded lynching victims, often times in the act of helping black people. I'm sure my concerns would not be heard if one of my relatives had been lynched and I desired a school name change.

The old man up the road goes by the name of "Whitey."
I am mainly of European descent.
That old man's name offends me.
I demand justice.
