Is there a point where the “P.C. Police” are satisfied? Are there ever “enough” rules governing the jokes we tell, the mascots of sports teams, or the symbols on city seals? Or should we want a society as non-offensive as the American college campus?

Many progressives compete with one another to see who can be most offended by the most trivial things, such as the names of sports teams, not to mention flags. In this week’s video, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist George Will deploys his sharp wit to show how progressives are overlooking other rich sources of indignation, including names of cities and state seals – many of which progressives should insist be changed if they’re going to be consistent about finding offense in . . . well, nearly everything.

Will then imagines what an idyllic politically correct universe would look like.  See which points resonate with you.
