PC in Orlando and in Our Future

If the Orlando massacre at a gay night club teaches us anything, it demonstrates the grip that political correctness has on our society.

One might call it a death grip. We now know that fears about being thought Islamophobic prevented colleagues of Major Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood killer, from reporting his jihadist sympathies even though they considered him to be a “ticking time bomb.” Likewise, a neighbor of Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik decided not to report her suspicions about them to the police lest she be guilty of “racial profiling.” But for political correctness, the San Bernardino massacre might have been prevented.
