    The son of the famed Beatles member John Lennon has publicly made it clear that political correctness has destroyed the left he once knew and respected.

    Sean Ono-Lennon took to Twitter on Friday and tweeted out a message that stirred controversy within the left.

    “When I was young the most interesting people were left-wing intellectuals. Believe it or not,” tweeted Lennon.

    John Lennon's Son Denounces Political Correctness, Says Leftist Intellectuals Have Become Pathetic

    The son of their hippy commie god who was worth $800 million when he died and owned numerous homes and yet spoke about NO POSSESSIONS, sees the error in their pathetic ways. Their pathetic socialist ways that fails every country.

    What makes you think a socialist can’t be wealthy?

    I don't do twitter but it looks like to me he included himself and other liberals in this comment. "“No we’ve become the church lady as person below says. It’s embarrassing. We’re offended by comedy and science. It’s pathetic,” tweeted Lennon." One of may opinions.

    I'm really glad John Lennon did this song for his son before he was murdered. It must mean a lot to Sean.

    HILARIOUS that he calls Leftists Church Ladies too, as I and other conservatives have noticed for years now. And he is SO RIGHT. Moralizing Puritans is another term I have for them, and point out all the time that my evangelical church is a place we go for a relaxed, NON-JUDGMENTAL atmosphere.

    Perfect...heh

    Yes, Leftists love to talk about no possession, carbon footprint, and that material wealth is shallow and spirituality is key. Well, they never live that way do they? Look at all the current celebrities preaching to us about man made climate change. They ALL use private jets, have multiple large homes, large caravans of SUV's to transport them and their entourage form the airport to the Global Warming Conferences all over the world.

    I have NO problem with people having material wealth, but don't preach to me that I CAN'T! And yes, John Lennon was a hypocrite, and could be a real jerk.

    He says they're offended by "comedy and science" but it's much worse than that. They're offended by people who live differently than they do, think differently than they do and make different choices than they do and must hunt them down in cake and florist shops and Make Them Conform.

    They name call and melt down when you disagree. They are almost to a man and women incapable of making rational arguments but argue with childish petty feelings or completely irrational hyperbole.

    A national embarrassment, in short.

    Criticism of the left is not necessarily an endorsement of the right. They have their own problems. The article in question takes two short tweets and turns them into several paragraphs of standard right-wing bitching that probably do not reflect Lennon's views.

    I was just about to put that up; you saved me the effort.

    I'm guessing Lennon is still not commending Trump for his statesmanship.

    The Left is actually losing the culture because of extreme political correctness.

    The first sign for me was the prevalence of "snowflake".
