Critical Mass of Political Correctness

Reports of politically correct stupidity have reached the critical mass whereby I am compelled to blog upon them:

A week old, but still good: Conservative silenced on election night in Philly
The incident in question happened during an election night party in Philadelphia for Barack Obama, when a young man showed up wearing a McCain-Palin T-shirt. A video shows he was roughed up a bit, handcuffed, and jailed. Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel says there is a constitutional right to freedom of expression that this man was denied.
No kidding. But the Obamatrons don't care about freedom of speech, or precious little else in the old piece of paper our country was founded upon.

Next a case of egregious legal system abuse by one of the "protected classes" who have made this kind of behavior a hallmark: Suit forces eHarmony to offer gay dating service
The settlement was the result of a discrimination complaint filed by Eric McKinley against eHarmony in 2005, which will be dismissed under the settlement agreement.
Once society starts down the path of socialism the concept of private companies goes out the window.

Speaking of that "protected class" here is another example of hallmark behavior: 'Gay' activists engage in 'hate crimes' against Christians
Dr. Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (CADC) is calling on law enforcement to provide protection in light of recent assaults on the Christian community. A Michigan church called Mount Hope was recently attacked by a self-titled homosexual anarchist group called Bash Back.

Homosexual activists, according to Cass, have made it a regular practice to protest outside of California's churches, and he contends something should be done about it. "We're calling for the police to protect people of faith for standing for traditional values," he says.
Still waiting for the headlines about radical alternative sexual lifestyle activists arrested for hate crimes [cue crickets]

On to the topic of community standards, or shall I say the destruction of them by legal means: 'Dirty dancing' ban holds, town pays thousands

A small North Carolina town is caving in to the American Civil Liberties Union over an eight-year-old case of "dirty dancing."

The incident in Marshall occurred at a community facility where a micro-mini-skirted Rebecca Willis, who was 56 at the time, was gyrating on the dance floor simulating intimate acts with a dance partner. According to Associated Press, the woman's dress was so short that it exposed her under-clothing -- but Willis prefers to label her style of dancing as "exuberant and flamboyant," not obscene.

Evidently, however, clientele at the Marshall Depot disagreed, and Willis was told to stay away from the refurbished train station that serves as a community center. She brought a lawsuit, and now the city has agreed to pay $275,000 to settle the suit. AP says the town strongly opposes lifting the ban on Willis.
Thank you for not having pictures. Some people need to grow up, even if they are 56.

And finally to the truly unfathomable: NYC Churches Ordered Not To Shelter Homeless
City officials have ordered 22 New York churches to stop providing beds to homeless people.

With temperatures well below freezing early Saturday, the churches must obey a city rule requiring faith-based shelters to be open at least five days a week -- or not at all
Why such a rule? It makes no sense to me, unless there is some reason the city officials feel must control where the homeless sleep. This smacks of fascism or socialism to me, not surprising for NYC.
"We really don't want people sleeping on the streets, on grates, on church steps. We want people sleeping in [our] beds," said Homeless Commissioner Robert Hess.
IMNSHO society is in trouble on many fronts.
