Being afraid to speak (political correctness)

Many people nowadays are afraid to speak their minds. Women have no place in the workplace, yet no one dares say it. Islam is a religion that promotes violence, but the official party line is Islam = peace. Every last single Jew should be burned at the stake and torn to pieces by wild horses, but the guilt of the Holocaust has made “anti-semitism” a bad word.
Chinese businessmen are shady characters who cheat, lie and sometimes sleep with their bosses’ wives to get ahead, but no one dares say the truth as we gladly let our children accept their angpow every CNY. Homosexuals should be raped by dogs and fed their own bodily wastes, but no, we hug them tightly with kisses on cheeks (with the hope that none of their homo-ness wipes off on us). Indians stink of ghee, fat and lard and sweat, but we smile contently at them, straightfaced, accepting the doctrine of cultural relativism.
When did it become a crime to say what we think? Whose bright idea was it that we should all be polically correct?
Wouldn’t it be outrageous good fun to have a device one day that filters out the PC bullshit and give it all to us in plain, easy to understand English? Sorta like a modern-day version of those x-ray glasses every young boy wanted.
