During her Friday program on the "Fox Business Network," Melissa Francis made a truly scandalous revelation. "when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of Obamacare simply didn't work. Not the politics by the way; just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced."
And I was certainly friendly with them as anybody, good information can come from any source. But when I persisted with Fast and Furious and some of the green energy stories I was doing, I clearly at some point became a target… -Sharyl Attkisson, regarding Media Matters
Last week, the New York Times ran a piece titled “Daring to Complain About Obamacare,” in which leftwing journalist Lori Gottlieb, who lost her policy, feigned surprise at how quickly she was ostracized by her former friends, both online and in person, when she dared criticize The Won... -Ed Driscoll

Former Huffington Post contributor David Seaman was terminated Sunday evening for writing two articles questioning Hillary Clinton’s health.
“It’s chilling,” Seaman noted. “I still haven’t really absorbed it.” Seaman’s articles — “Hillary Clinton’s Health Is Super (Aside From Seizures, Lesions, Adrenaline Pens)” and “Donald Trump Challenges Hillary Clinton To Health Records Duel” — “were pulled without notice… just completely deleted from the Internet.”

Students at a “safe space” at Claremont McKenna College in California shut down an Asian woman who was describing racial harassment by a black man, booing her when she declared, “black people can be racist.” -by Elizabeth Preza
People are growing intolerant of any dissent from their idea of what everyone should believe. Agree with me and you're one of the good guys; disagree with me and you're not just wrong, you're my enemy, a heretic, a traitor, a bigot.
I disagree with conservatives about pretty much everything, but they've never tried to rabidly cancel me for disagreeing with them. The moment I disagreed with liberals on the direction of the Democratic party I have been viciously attacked in a way that goes way beyond politics. -Ryan Knight
And I began to realize that maybe my opinions just didn’t fit in with the liberal status quo, which seems to mean that you must absolutely hate Trump, his supporters and everything they believe. If you dare not to protest or boycott Trump, you are a traitor.
If you dare to question liberal stances or make an effort toward understanding why conservatives think the way they do, you are a traitor.
“If you agree with them then that is your opinion. Just know that to the rest of us, you are a piece of worthless trash”
My argument about political correctness is not tendentious or partisan - it's analytical.
The core of the argument is that when groups care a lot about maintaining conformity of belief on some matter of critical interest to them, then the hunt for heretics is always ongoing. We're always looking for deviants.

The crowd adored Obama, although not as much as I think he adored himself. Liberals were intolerant of anyone who had doubts. Obama was not a man, but a totem. A single critical column from me during the campaign triggered a fusillade of invective. The famous and esteemed told me off. I was the tool of right-wing haters, a dope of a dupe. -Richard Cohen
