I don’t like Donald Trump.
That being said, let’s just skip past the ranting monologue enumerating his many evils and, instead, focus on the eye-opening phenomenon of people loving that he “says what he thinks.”
Of even more concern to me is that many support him because he says what they think, but are too afraid to say themselves.
Because it’s politically incorrect.
I really wonder if we aren’t missing the bigger problem here.
Rather than being so focused on what someone may or may not say that will presumably cause offense, the more important question is:
Why do they want to say it in the first place? Why do they think these thoughts about others?
And just as significant,
Why is everyone so quick to be offended by something a stranger may say or do?
Knowing that political correctness and thought police would fit right in with the adversary’s plan and not the one we chose to support, we’d be right to bristle at the mere thought.
But that doesn’t mean that our thoughts shouldn’t be policed.
We just need to police our own, and not those of others.
