A recent Rasmussen Poll reveals that 66% of Americans are now afraid to freely speak their minds. And why wouldn’t they be? What with punching Nazis, throwing commies out of Helicopters, destroying people’s lives and businesses over thoughts, or because they didn’t bake a cake for some protected class of people, no wonder they are afraid. And as that fear goes, the bad thoughts, the “dangerous” thoughts will go underground, festering, growing, fomenting, waiting for the next opportunity to come out. And when it does come out, it won’t come out with words, or simple refusal to do business with someone, it will come out violently.
So to all of you, no matter your beliefs, who are contributing to the culture of fear for expressing ideas that someone believes warrants your very life being harmed, directly, thanks, thanks for driving bad thoughts underground. Thanks for allowing hate and fear to fester under the surface, where it can be fed, unchecked, by critical, but non-violent voices.
Is the nation switching from the land of the free and the home of the brave — to the land of the silent, and the home of the reluctant? Citizens are wary of speaking their minds, a new poll suggests. Many Americans are opting to stay quiet in an intensified culture of political correctness fostered by activism and often biased media coverage.
“Few Americans think they have true freedom of speech today and think the country is too politically correct,” reports a new Rasmussen Reports survey.
It reveals that just 28 percent of Americans believe that they have think Americans “have true freedom of speech today.”
A hefty majority — 66 percent — believe that they must “be careful not to say something politically incorrect to avoid getting in trouble.”
