VICTOR DAVIS HANSON ON THE NEW LAST REFUGE OF SCOUNDRELS:
Harvey Weinstein assumed that fighting the NRA and Trump would compensate for assaulting and harassing women. Steven Colbert thought that he could use gross homophobic slurs and avoid criticism because he was doing so to attack a despised Trump who holds the nation’s nuclear codes. Christina Garcia believes that as a Latina representative of her “community,” she is exempt from the very charges she often levels against others, and she assumes that using profanity, drinking in her office, and slurring gays are the exemptions given to one who is an “advocate.”
Political correctness is now the new last refuge of a scoundrel.
No wonder Connecticut Democrat Elizabeth Esty assumed that the right clichés, being a proponent for gun control, and a (D) after her name would allow her to ride out her scandals.
