Clap clap, pray pray, chant chant, burn burn

Christopher Hitchens, on a panel show, takes on an apologist for Islamist rent-a-mobs "insulted" by Rushdie's knighthood, and the bovine audience applauding her... moderate and reasonable attitude towards freedom of speech. Bracing.

WHo gives a rats ass whether a British knighthood offends one party or another. The political correctness crowd have to come to the conclusion that it is not possible to pick up a turd by the clean end. You cannot not offend everyone. But these days it seems that more and more people take offense at everything.

Do I care if a radical group of people are offended, no. The media has been offending Christians for years, and those Christians turn the other cheek. Budhhists just pass off offensive gestures as unimportant.

People need to grow up and start thinking beyond their own personal space.

If this offends anyone... I'll have to think about whether I care or not.
