Political Correctness Runs Amok

You know you have too much time on your hands in Portland when this seems like a good idea (Part Deux) - What Would Jack Do:

...If you believe that protesting Saffron Colonial is an appropriate and reasonable thing, you really need to get over yourself. If you want to vent your considerable outrage, how about doing it on something that actually matters? Portland is a city facing more than a few serious and significant problems, issues eminently worthy of considerable amounts of righteous outrage. Targeting a restaurant is little more than a silly, mean-spirited attempt to destroy someone’s hard work and dreams for no good reason.

We should be better than this, but given Portland’s reputation for enforcing political correctness, it’s not surprising that so many have stooped so low. If it wasn’t for manufactured outrage, some would have no outrage at all.
