You're not OFFENDED, are you?

I certainly hope you're not OFFENDED. Because this shitshow of a country has become obsessed with "not offending someone" something something. Just from the past week:

I could probably find more (left OR right doesn't seem to matter much, they're all "offended" at each other) but you get the idea.

People who say they don't get easily or at all offended, they probably have an abnormal brain chemistry at the very least. It's a basic human emotion, like jealousy or anger. This phenomena is merely a wider combination of the media finally realizing it generates interest, and then the secondary players in the attention economy realizing that too.

I would buy the Betsy Ross and USSR shoes. Most kids today won't know what either means anyway. To be honest, I'm against wearing anything with the US flag on it since it violates US Flag Code. But I won't stop someone from wearing it or a company from making it. Free speech and all that.

High quality LA politics:

Even Canadian editorial writers have noticed and are "offended"
