    I like Bernie Sanders but his close association with Linda Sarsour has now taken its toll on Mr. Sanders Campaign. What would you think if Mr. Obama was friends with David Duke? Strange bedfellows! Reported by the New York Post:(Sept. 21, 2019)" Pressure is mounting on Sen. Bernie Sanders to cut ties with longtime campaign surrogate Linda Sarsour, with critics such as Manhattan billionaire Ronald Lauder citing her long history of anti-Semitic comments". That is only the tip of Linda SarsourĀ“s. She has close ties with Louis Farrakhan. and in a crazy tweet stated "I wish I could take their vaginas away". I certainly hope Mr. SanderĀ“s acts quickly, he is the only hope the Democrats have to win the next election.

    I have problems with Bernie.
    But this isn't one of them.

    I agree. Political correctness has extended to people's friends as it has extended to people's siblings.

    Is this Linda Sarsour person actually antisemitic, or is she merely anti-Israel?

    There were quite a few so called "bigots" and "racists" that warned people this is where it was all going, but of course who wants to listen to "bigots" and "racists"?

    Nobody, except other bigots and racists, I suppose.

    You don't think that this PC madness has gone too far? The way I see it it is out of control and has been for quite a while but there are many that didn't understand that when you light a fire you might get burned. Unfortunately the ones that attempted to temper mindless outrage with tempered reasoning were branded heretics ("racists", "bigots" etc.) can't say they weren't warned.

    Any PC behaviour that can fairly be described as "madness" has gone too far, by definition. But I can't answer without knowing what particular examples of "madness" you have in mind.
