Are you now or have you ever been a racist?

You knew it had to come to this.

There’s a new police chief in this small town, and he’s looking to change his department’s reputation after years of high-profile controversy. His first step: Every new officer candidate will take a lie detector test.
“Because of what happened ... every new officer I hire will go through the polygraph, and that’s what it’s focused at, any kind of racial issues or prejudice issues they may have toward any group,” said Coopertown’s new police chief, Shane Sullivan.

Once upon a time in the land of the free and the home of the brave a person was punished for what they had done.

Now the PC boys and girls demand that your thoughts must be pure and within the guidelines dictated by the apparatchik.

Did all those people die for this?

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

 “It’s the presumption that Obama knows how all these industries ought to be operating better than people who have spent their lives in those industries, and a general cockiness going back to before he was president, and the fact that he has no experience whatever in managing anything. Only someone who has never had the responsibility for managing anything could believe he could manage just about everything.” - Thomas Sowell in Reason Magazine
