Since the concept of political correctness became well-known in the late 1980s, it’s typically been thought of as a left-wing phenomenon, but some liberals claim that conservatives have their own version of it. In a Thursday article, Steve Almond alleged that right-wing PC is “a relentless blaring Persecution Complex” which manifests as “a mindset that reframes its paranoid aggressions as legitimate and necessary forms of self-defense.”

“The conservative PC movement is what allows gun-toting madmen to see themselves as religious martyrs when they gun down human beings whose ‘crime’ is that they provide reproductive health services to poor women,” declared Almond. “At its extreme, it’s what prompts men like Timothy McVeigh to perpetrate acts of mass murder in response to the ‘tyranny’ of the U.S. Government.”

Lena Dunham's cameo in "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" got cut from the film's final version. That hardly matters. Her pungent progressive streak infects every frame. The sequel to the surprisingly rich “Neighbors” plays out like a Salon.com article brought to life. You won’t find a liberal talking point untapped before the end credits roll.

It was 1952. The GOP, out of the White House for twenty full years, had finished a rollicking national convention with a bang. After a dramatic showdown between the forces of D-Day hero General Dwight D. Eisenhower and the conservative Ohio Senator Robert Taft, Ike had won the day. Taft, always the gentleman, conceded, and the two rivals posed for pictures smiling together.

On Thursday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell, following a meeting the previous day between some of the nation's top conservative leaders and company officials at Facebook, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg, "told Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto ... that he 'left encouraged' that the site wants to fix the 'erosion of trust' set forth by allegations of censoring conservative news topics."

An incident the previous week confirmed that Zuckerberg and Facebook have a genuine and serious credibility problem on their hands, as the site's "Trending Topics" monitors characterized a well-known actress's shout-out for the wonderful work done by a DC-area pregnancy and parenthood center as an "anti-abortion message."

Despite the fact that an overwhelming amount of Native Americans do not find the Washington Redskins team name offensive, Bob Costas thinks he knows better.

The Left used to congratulate itself on being the "Free Speech Movement" and celebrate the rebellious anarchists who used obscene words and forced sexually graphic images and conversations into the public square. Conservatives were the ones who insisted on decency in the public discourse, and demanded regulation, both within the private sector as well as from the federal government, to protect the public from that obscenity.

But now, as the world turns upside down on sexuality and gender, leftists are becoming the ones who censor and fine. Instead of a Hays Code for decency, there's a Gays Code. Breaking the new language rules of the LGBT lobby can now cost you very dearly. And literally.

Bradley Klapper of Associated Press broke the story Friday that “A group the White House recently identified as a key surrogate in selling the Iran nuclear deal gave National Public Radio $100,000 last year to help it report on the pact and related issues, according to the group's annual report. It also funded reporters and partnerships with other news outlets.”

The group is the Ploughshares Fund, whose most notable pundit is former Joe Biden adviser Joseph Cirincione. Klapper noted that when White House aide Ben Rhodes bragged in a New York Times Magazine profile about how “we created an echo chamber” to sell the Iran arms deal, he added that "outside groups like Ploughshares" helped carry out the administration's message.

The revelation, that 90% of Native Americans are in no way offended by the word Redskin, may not have swayed the uber-leftist panel of ESPN’s Around the Horn to change their minds about the Redskins name. However, it apparently has caused at least one member of the mainstream press to drop his opposition to the team name.

MRC President Brent Bozell on Thursday appeared on The Blaze TVand compared the controversy engulfing Facebook’s targeting of conservatives to the IRS selecting right-leaning groups for special scrutiny. Talking to host Tomi Lahren, Bozell explained, “For anyone to suggest that Facebook has a policy against conservatives, it's just simply unfounded. It's silly. The IRS didn't have a policy against conservatives. There were people within the IRS who had a policy against conservatives.”

Reacting to NBC’s Andrea Mitchell claiming on Thursday that her 1999 rape accusation against Bill Clinton was “discredited,” Juanita Broaddrick blasted the reporter: “Andrea is obviously mad at me for exposing her rudeness and bias when she called me this year. I think being a lapdog for Hillary Clinton discredits Andrea Mitchell and NBC as journalists!”

In an interview on Friday’s NBC Today with the filmmakers of the newly-released documentary about disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, perplexed co-host Savannah Guthrie wondered: “How on earth did you get this access? But why on earth would Anthony Weiner grant that kind of access, knowing what he knew about himself?”

The Atlantic's Peter Beinart ripped Donald Trump on Thursday's AC360 on CNN over his repeated use of the phrase "radical Islam." When Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany defended the billionaire for this criticism, Beinart retored, "If you're talking about ISIS, we know what that is. If you're talking about radical Islam, I don't think, with all due respect, you have any idea what that is....the Saudi government...is a regime that is based on sharia; the regime in Pakistan has elements...the point is, it's a completely ill-defined term; and that's what makes it dangerous."

Alex Weprin at Politico reports that secular-progressive “humorist” Samantha Bee came to the TBS “upfront” presser in New York on Wednesday to tell reporters she wants to become an official sponsor of the Republican convention in Cleveland -- obviously, not as a show of support. She wants to haunt it like an early Halloween. "For only $100,000 I can become an actual sponsor of the Republican convention, and get banner space on the convention floor. I want this. My giant face looming over the convention in every CNN wide shot for a week? Please picture it," Bee added, pulling up mockups of potential billboards.
