The Self-Muzzling of America

Democratic candidates are apparently not allowed to say “radical Islam.” Or “All lives matter.” If they say those things, there’s hell to pay. And now Hillary Clinton has pledged not to say “illegal immigrant.”

By the time the caucuses and primaries roll around, will Democrats be able to say anything? Beyond “racist”? An assault on language is an assault on thought. Democrats like to say they’re the thinking party. The truth is, their party is chockfull of taboos, and not necessarily good ones.

As a Republican, I cackle a bit, but it’s bad for the country.
