George Carlin: Political correctness is fascism
Nobody quite had a way with words as the late George Carlin, especially when it came to serious political issues.
Still relevant today, more than ever in fact, is an excerpt from his book ‘When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?’, where he discusses ‘political correctness’.

“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.”
The eight-minute video is classic-Carlin where he does not hold back from his speaking exactly what he believes, and as ever, he hits the nail on the head.
