Political correctness isn’t for cissies

Aug 15, 2014 by

by Peter Franklin, Conservative Home: Being PC used to be easy-peasy. On the one hand you had the oppressors – i.e. rich white males; while on the other other you had the oppressed – i.e. everyone else. All you had to do was side with the latter against the former and you’d be sorted. But now it’s more complicated.
