Today the claim that somebody offended you is used as a justification for violent action, including state action, or in other words, claiming victim status has been weaponized.
Heh, understatement, doctor. You can be out with the office people, negotiating on what toppings to put on the veggie pizza. Someone will ask “What difference at this point does it make?” Then some clowny yahoo will say “Olives matter.”
This simple pun is now so offensive, it is considered nearly worthy of career capital punishment for both.
This is the kind of thing which is making Trump so popular. Well, that and this latest Powell bombshell, but I think it is all the hypersensitivity contributing to the current absurdity.
