Piers Morgan on Liberalism

“Populism is rising because liberals have become unbearable, okay? And I speak as a liberal… Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal and it’s a massive problem. What’s the point of calling yourself a liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view? You know, this snowflake culture we operate in, this victimhood culture that everyone, has to think in a certain way, behave a certain way. Everyone has to have a bleeding heart… You say a joke 10 years ago that offended somebody you can never host the Oscars… So what’s happening around the world? Populism is rising because people are fed up with the PC culture. They’re fed up with the snowflake culture. They’re fed up with everyone being offended by everything… They just want to tell people, not just how to lead their life but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to, It’s a kind of version of fascism. “

— Piers Morgan

[I thought old Piers made some interesting points here. It would be hard for the youngster of today to believe, but just in my lifetime television has changed dramatically. Self censorship as it were. For the best? Maybe. We’ll know in a hundred years or so. Though by that time I won’t care. Maybe you will. In the old days on television you wouldn’t hear someone say the ‘n-word’, they’d say nigger. Usually to show the overt racist nature of the Archie Bunker sort of character. There were more gay jokes. Stuff you couldn’t imagine today. On the other hand, there’s a name you won’t hear on TV that you used to sometimes, Jesus. Hollywood movies love it in the context of a swear word, “Jesus Christ!” I always try and imagine them using the name of Muhammad in the context of an epitaph.]
