Clint Eastwood on political correctness gone wild!

This "Clint Eastwood" interview/commentary sums up exactly my feelings on political correctness and how crazy the "western world" has become in this freaky day and age:

Eastwood thinks political correctness has made society humourless and his correct..as always!


London, February 27 (ANI): Acting legend Clint Eastwood , 79, apparently believes that political correctness has rendered modern society humourless, for he accuses younger generations of spending too much time trying to avoid being offensive.

The Dirty Harry star insists that he should be able to tell harmless jokes about nationality without fearing that people may brand him "a racist".

"People have lost their sense of humour. In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth or you will be insulted as a racist," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

"I find that ridiculous. In those earlier days every friendly clique had a 'Sam the Jew' or 'Jose the Mexican' - but we didn't think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was just normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem. I don't want to be politically correct.

We're all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything," he added.

That is the truth.

People spend way too much time with this PC BS.

I think it even goes beyond just PC, its a culture thing. Much to my chagrin we have enacted and allowed freedom FROM speech as opposed to freedom OF speech.
