    People do go over the top with political correctness now so I do think Clint has a point, but we do need to have laws against discrimination and racism. You can't just say anything you want. We need clearer guidelines and education on what is and what is not acceptable, because sometimes it's difficult to determine what someone will and will not find offensive. Clint Eastwood is just an actor so who cares what he thinks. Donald Trump is an idiot.

    He does seem like a racist to be fair.However I think people should be allowed to say whatever they want short of inciting violence.If you begin to control what people can and cant say then how long is it until you're not allowed to even think certain things.Its totalitarian.

    Clint is correct. The problem I have with his comment is he understated the problem. Probably out of fear of offending someone.

    He's right.

    This will be remembered as the era when people were obsessed with being offended by everything. When grown-ass adults acted like children, perpetually crying about non-issues and melodramatically making mountains out of molehills whenever they heard something they disagreed with. When people demanded mommy government fight all their battles and breastfeed them well into their 30s. And if it didn't, they'd throw a tantrum.

    Is voting for Donald Trump an act of bravery or stupidity, though? That is the question. Would the rebellious and strong generations who lived during the Cold War willingly vote for a man who allies himself with Putin and wants to test US restrictions on nuclear weapons?
    Well the alternative is someone with ties to Saudis and who wants to destabilise the Middle East because her efforts so far haven't done enough damage.

    I don't get how improving relationships between countries is a bad thing, surely it is worse to antagonise Putin.

    People are too scared to say what they think because they're scared of offending people with their views and concerns. Trump isn't scared to say things that might offend a few people.
    A FEW PEOPLE?! Like the comment he made about the mother of the soldier that died in war and said "shes not speaking because her religion doesnt let her".

    when she was simply over whelmed by the over-life size posters of her dead son that she thought if she spoke she would break down into tears.

    I dont know ANYONE who didn't think that was absolutely horrible! When i heard that on the radio i was absolutly agasht!

    The real questions is: who cares what Hollywood thinks? Sure, Eastwood is like 100 years old so he doesn't represent Hollywood-style liberalism. But he's as ignorant as anyone in Hollywood. He's an actor and a director, not some sociologist with 20K citations and 100 studies on discrimination and racism.

    So yeah, who gives a **** what Clint thinks? make a spaghetti western film and shut up about things you know nothing about.

    Political correctness doesn't only embody condemning people who verbally abused women and ethnic minorities. A commenter on one of the articles made an excellent point:
    "... And so, in the doddering drooling stage of his career, Clint Eastwood finally delivers a performance worthy of an Oscar for hypocrisy. "Political Correctness sickens me!" declares the man who gave us the party-line establishment-ass-kissing propaganda hagiography called "American Sniper".

    The strongest, widest, deepest current of Political Correctness in American society is the religious doctrine that Americans Are Exceptional! Our Troops (TM) are Always The Good Guys!! You want to see Political Correctness in action? Just try telling some people that American troops are in the wrong when they invade and occupy other peoples' countries - and that those people have a right to fight back in their countries, and that it is not terrorism when you fight off an invading army in your own country. Then wait for the howls of outrage at such "politically incorrect" speech...

    So Clint Eastwood puts together the most cowardly politically-correct propaganda movie that shows how the brave occupying American soldiers in Iraq just HAD to kill 9 year-old boys and women...but only because Iraqis are like Injuns in westerns - and even the 9 year-olds and mothers were dangerous to Our Troops!. This degree of official-party-line political correctness would have made even the Nazis in Inglorious Basterds say "Wait...isn't this a little one-sided?" You want to see cowardly political correctness? Exhibit A: "American Sniper". But here is Eastwood now, trying to convince himself (and us) that political correctness actually means he can't call people n***** anymore without some push back."

    What he's saying still holds some truth, regardless of how hypocritical or bad a person he is. He's not even saying he agrees with Trump, he's noting the important fact that Trump is "on to something". And it is true that language policing has become obsessive, that people are often walking on eggshells nowadays, and that people are often scared to give their unfiltered opinion.
