PC Gestapo Strikes Again

The arrogance of Political Correctness struck again recently when a city employee in Riverside, CA, took it upon herself to silence a choir troupe singing Christmas carols because she wanted to be "sensitive" to their guest, ice skating champ Sasha Cohen, who is half Jewish. The fool neglected to ask Cohen herself, however, if the carols bothered her. Had she done so, she would have known that Cohen celebrates both Christmas and Hanukkah, and had no issues at all with the choir.

This is exactly the problem with the progressive PC police. They simply assume people will be insulted or made uncomfortable without even ever asking the supposed "victims" how they feel. In this case, the city employee stepped out-of-bounds and should have conferred with a supervisor, if not Cohen herself.
