: McSpotlight: Winslow, isn't making generalizations like "the kind of simplistic, p.c. logic I would expect from a 'leftist' (read authoritarian)" a bit simplistic yourself.

WW: Why, yes it is. Tit for tat - it seems like it's the only thing that gets their goat.

Mcspotlight: Would you say that Noam Chomsky used simplistic p.c. logic?

WW: I don't know - does Chomsky go around telling people they are "too white" or "not black enough" or "too American"? Because many of his followers (oh, the irony!) do just that! Of course, it would be unfair to blame him for this behavior. Think about it though - white people telling people they are too white, black people telling people they aren't black enough, "American" people blaming "American" workers for the world's problems, etc. - this is the "left" in "America". This is progress?

McSpotlight: But why try to "get their goat" in the first place? This is a Debating Room; not a place to aggravate people who don't share your views...
