Rolling Eyes

What next?  It being banned totally in that it depicts persecution of rodents?

The sooner people realise Political Correctness is just a ploy by certain over politicised  groups of people to curtail freedom of speech of mainstream society the better.
It's a shoddy import from America which doesn't deserve to be foisted on the General public. It's become somewhat akin to Oliver Cromwell and his New Model Army remove all the joy from life by constantly firing of edicts that you can't say this that or the other, shouldn't think certain ways or view or read certain things because one small group find them offensive and feel the have some moral imperative over the rest of society.
The frightening part is when you see the perpetrators of this rubbish on TV sitting there all prim proper and so incredibly pious, truly they terrify me.

A few years ago I remember there was talk about banning all the old cartoons. All the violence, dangerous antics, racism, various animalism, sexism and any other bloody ism they could cook up. None of those cartoons were as 'bad' as some recent ones that appear, to me, to promote disrespect for older people and parents. I know, I'm a boring old git. Ignore me at your leisure, I will still respect you tomorn.

If you watch modern kids tv it's all based on the premise that every child knows more than any adult and it's ok to treat adults like idiots and boss them around. We should thank all the lefty luvvies who work in media and like to promote this stupidity.

Us adults is smart though. We pretend to be dimwitted and stupid, it's such bloody good fun.
