    So true--get sympathy , power, and a sense of "caring" by proxy.

    The fact that they typically vote Republican earns them a demotion to "Uncle Tom" status.

    "I propose one more explanation: the easily offended-the not so easily offended."

    THAT is the key to the liberal assault on traditional American values. They pretend that they are offended. By doing so, they gain the status of victim. By being a victim, they can demand special status and "protection" from the federal government. By being a victim, they can demand that the majority cease any activity which these "victims" find "offensive". It's a game the libs have played for at least twenty years and they have it perfected.

    It's time that conservatives get wise, stop playing the game and start flipping them the finger.

    Uncle Tom is one of the best books I've ever read, too bad it's taken on such a derogatory meaning.

    Too damn right, Said1! The surest way to ruin something cool is to politicize it.

    Puh-leeze! Do I have to mention Janet Jackson's boobs again? All that whining and sniveling wasn't coming from the blue states, it was coming from the red states in the south. So were the lawsuits. How about all these people who take offense when two gay men or lesbians want to get married? You don't hear to many blue staters being offended by that either.

    Now to be really serious, this is a case of a writer taking one extreme and attempting to paint everyone who leans in that general direction with the same brush. I don't think every Republican is Pat Robertson. I also know that every Democrat isn't Hillary Clinton. About 95% of us fall somewhere in between.

    What's more interesting? This author is taking offense at those who get offended!
