Groups It’s OK to Criticize

It’s open season on these groups

Thanks to our politically correct climate in modern day America there are large groups of people that it’s perfectly OK to bash with no expectation of retaliation.

No one’s really sure how these particular groups achieved such unenviable status but feel free to pontificate against any of the following groups as much as you like.

They probably deserve it.

Israel

We send them tons of money every year. Never mind that they’re the freest and most prosperous area in the Middle East, they’re mean to the Palestinians.

Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, and Libya are all off limits. Can’t speak badly of those terrorist-supporting nations that we also send tons of money to.

If we do, they will stop accepting speaking gigs at our colleges and universities. But Israel? Feel Free.

White Christian Males

This group of overly religious zealots is the worst. Telling everyone to live a restricted life. No porn, no gay marriage, no adultery, in short — no fun.

But don’t think for one second that you’re allowed to speak ill of Sharia Law unless you want to be labeled a bigot.

Under Sharia Law, no porn that’s for sure, no gays that’s for sure, no adultery either, yet those folks are the champions of the Islamic states, but they’re still off limits.

Fox News

FOX LIES! FOX LIES! You’ll hear that simple declarative at every left-wing demonstration across this land.

Yet in spite of all of Fox News lies, misinformation, and distortions of the news they’re so far ahead of number two in cable news ratings it’s ridiculous.

Abraham Lincoln so eloquently said, “You can fool some of the people all of the time, you can all the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.”

Apparently, Fox News can because they’ve been number one all day, every day, for years.

So either Honest Abe was wrong and you can, “fool all the people all the time,” or perhaps the ones yelling, “FOX LIES” are the ones being fooled.
