To look at virtually anything produced by Hollywood is to register confirmation that the libertine Left cherishes clogging our popular culture with vulgarities. The messaging in movies, television and particularly music is punctuated deliberately and unnecessarily with all manner of language designed to offend.

But when it comes to perfectly decent speech -- spoken innocently with no bad intention -- those same liberals need smelling salts.  Welcome to the wacky world of “micro-aggressions,” where conversation becomes a minefield of political correctness.

Friday’s gay-marriage mandate from the Supreme Court is merely the latest “landmark” decision on the slippery slope toward obliterating any definition of consensual deviancy. We haven’t defined deviancy down. We’ve shredded it.

Now, it’s social conservatives who have become the focus of fear, violence, and discrimination for maintaining their deeply held religious views that homosexuality is a sin and that “gay marriage” is an act of cultural deconstruction.

Marc Maron is a stand-up comedian and radio host in Los Angeles. Hipsters love his podcast, mostly interviews with other comedians, which he titled "WTF." On his website, the merchandise includes a coffee mug that says "Pow! I [soiled] my pants." You can understand why he was shocked President Obama wanted to grant him an interview.

As for Obama's tastes, and his devotion to the decorum of his office, nothing shocks us. He has neither.

There is a healthy discussion now underway within Catholic circles asking the improbable question: What is the message of Laudato Si, the pope’s new encyclical on the environment? The political left feels not just vindicated but triumphant. Global warming is not just sound science, it is dogma. Conservative skeptics are therefore not just ignorant, they are immorally ignorant.  

There are numerous unnecessary and annoying genuflections to liberal political ideology in the statement. But there are also passages in this encyclical that could be interpreted as endorsements of the social conservative agenda, and you can bet your bottom euro that the national news media will refuse to discuss them.

For years liberals have used a supportive national news media who intimidate anyone who dares question their global-warming agenda. Now these liberals believe Pope Francis has endorsed their ideological imperatives through Laudato Si. His encyclical elevates their agenda to dogma.

Those who analyze this encyclical through the perspective of politics see this as a gift to the American left. Liberals will use this paper to silence the conservative Catholic vote. Your position on global warming is not just wrong, it's immoral. Conservatives also see the damage this will do.

Just days after a horrific shooting that took nine lives, the AP has the gall to unapologetically display a gun aimed at the head of a presidential candidate. They would never do this to Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. Nor should they. This was not an accident and the AP owes Sen. Cruz, his wife and children, an immediate and unqualified apology.

Black activist Rachel Dolezal was exposed. Her parents revealed she was white. But then she saw her ideological opening. On NBC, she claimed "I identify as black."

And here we go again with another ride on the Insanity Express. This preposterous line has now been adopted by another segment of the loony Left. If a man is actually a woman if that was his/her “identity,” a white woman like Dolezal is a black woman because she too believes it.

CNN’s Jake Tapper kicked off his new hosting gig on the Sunday news show “State of the Union” featuring an interview with Bill Clinton, arranged through his Clinton Global Initiative. It’s a big name, but a tough start for a serious journalist. With the exception of his infamous snorting, knee-jabbing performance with Chris Wallace in 2006, the former president has negotiated a succession of journalistic foot-rubs surrounding his tightly scripted Global shindigs.

On that sycophantic curve, Tapper did well. Why can't others put this "genius" through the paces?

Along with other homosexual athletes like Jason Collins in the NBA, WNBA star Brittany Griner was lauded by the press for being an “inspiration” to the gay community. Griner and Johnson announced their engagement last August and made an appearance on the TLC wedding-reality program Say Yes to the Dress.

But what happens when the “inspiration” is arrested for domestic violence? The same news media that love the libertine narrative get very quiet.

Politico keeps posting ridiculous columns by both Democrats and Republicans who charge that the Clinton scandals are either (1) nonexistent  or (2) all politically harmless.

It’s better to focus on the second kind, a Republican who thinks the Clintons are much smarter than idiotic conservatives who hold their scandals against them.

The story of Bruce Jenner declaring against human reality that he’s a woman was already a tired old story, exhausted last month in a one-hour prime time ABC “news” special. But that's not how the grand poohbahs of our news and entertainment media see it. They can't get enough.

We know -- everyone knows -- Vanity Fair magazine rolled out a new cover of Bruce Jenner gaudily underdressed as a woman with the headline “Call Me Caitlyn.” Not a cover story, mind you, just a cover image. The media went bananas. ABC, CBS, and NBC offered more than 48 minutes of coverage in two days, as if Jenner was now the Queen of America.

Journalists are supposed to be the most informed members of society. Nothing is supposed to get past the iron traps in their brains. So which one of these concepts sounds more like a brain cramp? Hillary is so fantastic at defending herself she shouldn't be hiding from the press; or the Obama administration is remarkably scandal-free?

These are actual concepts forwarded on television in the last few days.

Ann Coulter has another best-selling book coming out,  provocatively titled Adios, America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole. One major target of Coulter barbs is our “objective” media.

Lord knows Coulter understands they deserve the hectoring. News reports are slavishly sensitive to the Latino Left’s political correctness. Start with the terminology. The factual term “illegal immigrants” is somehow an extremely mean-spirited description, even though that’s 100 percent accurate.. They claim to prefer less loaded lingo. Like “Dreamers.”

The latest scorecard from the American Conservative Union is out, and the voters of Virginia might want to file a complaint about truth in advertising with the press corps. Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner have routinely been portrayed in news reports as “moderates” and “centrists.” But after two years in the Senate, Tim Kaine has a perfect zero on the conservative scale. Mark Warner has a lifetime score of 10.33 percent conservative, but his last two annual scores have been a 4 and an 8. They could be mistaken for Barbara Mikulski (lifetime rating of 5.1).

There’s no classroom experience the libertine left supports more mightily than “sex education.” They have struggled to banish even a  whisper of a religious worldview from the classroom. Only the secular and “science-based” ideology is allowed.

The Daily Beast website recently celebrated a San Francisco ruling: “Hero Judge Rules Abstinence-Only Sex Ed Is Illegal.” They have also discovered a brave new model of sex education for America. It’s found in Norway. “All Hail Scandinavia,” they proclaimed. A female doctor named Line Jansrud demonstrates sex for Norwegian children aged 8 to 12.

It was outrageous for ABC News to promote Bill Clinton’s spokesman George Stephanopoulos to the top of the political-anchorman heap. It was shameless to keep him there even as Hillary Clinton keeps running for president. Conservatives never felt he was an appropriate choice, and  never felt he sincerely attempted fairness and balance in his “journalism.”

This feeling should belong to every American now that it’s out that Stephanopoulos donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation – run by Bill and Hillary – over the last three years. Given his background in the innermost circle of Team Clinton in the 1990s, these donations are either remarkably stupid or remarkably shameless. Stephanopoulos is not stupid.

Sofia Vergara is the Spanish-accented sexpot center of attention on the ABC sitcom Modern Family. She’s also now the center of an unwanted controversy over a “modern family.” She’s fighting with an ex-fiance over two frozen embryos.

Back in 2013, Vergara granted a TV interview to Dr. Oz to discuss her baby-making plans: “I’ve been very concerned about fertility and I wanted to take advantage of science, so I froze my huevos.” She and her fiancé Nick Loeb had no success with a surrogate mother on two embryos, and made two more before the relationship soured.

The media elite have a preeminent place in our politics, allegedly with the knowledge to declare what is politically feasible and what is not, including which candidates have a chance at winning and which do not. Before we head into a presidential primary season, it’s time to insist that these “experts” don’t know any better than the rest of us.

And sometimes their biases shade their predictions so heavily as to keep themselves in the dark about reality.

Hollywood and global-warming panic have always been a natural match. After all, who can tell you better to cut back on your wasteful ways better than a high-flying multi-millionaire movie star with the carbon footprint of a Tyrannosaurus Rex?

It's never mattered that the stars have all the scientific expertise of Pee Wee Herman. They're just so good-looking and famous, who cares? PBS broadcast a ten-hour series in 1990 entitled Race to Save the Planet. The show's host was Meryl Streep, who proclaimed: "By the year 2000...the Earth's climate will be warmer than it's been in over 100,000 years. If we don't do something, there will be enormous calamities in a very short time." Oops.
