  1. “Intolerant of racists”!!…Really?? I love the show so much, you guys, partly because it exposes me to ideas different than my own. But come on, “intolerant of racists”? Because you disagree with them? This is more of that “PC is destroying our country” BS… because people speak out against racism.

    If you think PC is a problem, here are two questions:
    1. What do you want to say that you’re not allowed to?
    2. What happens to you if you say it? (arrested, put in a death camp, called out on Twitter, etc.)
