The folks who argue that speech is not violence, and that dissent ought to be tolerated, need to grasp that for the totalitarian left, truth is no defense.
On the contrary, by saying what is true one is merely condemning himself still further. Continuing to proclaim the truth is an act of defying one’s persecutor which carries increasingly greater punishments the longer it is going on.
That’s the very essence of “political” correctness to which factual correctness bears no relation.
The accuser is good, the accused is evil, off with his head, end of story.
