Tell’em George!

In the loving memory of George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008), one of the few who got the courage to stand up and blame the PC madness.

Political correctness is America’s newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance. It presents itself as fairness, yet attempts to restrict and control people’s language with strict codes and rigid rules. I’m not sure that’s the way to fight discrimination. I’m not sure silencing people or forcing them to alter their speech is the best method for solving problems that go much deeper than speech.” – George Carlin

Many thanks to Caitlín Rebekah Kiernan, who posted this quote today on Facebook. I was looking for this in the last few days.
