In a scrupulously politically correct age, it's not offensive to organize a "Kill the police!" demo or to preach that the government invented Aids in order to perpetrate an African-American genocide. You can pull that stuff and still be part of respectable society, hanging out with presidential candidates and whatnot. What's grotesquely offensive is the chap who's insensitive enough to point out such statements and associations.
There's a scene in Saving Private Ryan where an SS man stabs a Jewish-American soldier in a hand to hand fight. As the knife goes in, the SS whispers to the man he is killing to hush. Don't make any trouble. Die like a good Jew. Mark Steyn understands that the real offense today isn't the destruction of Western liberties and standards. It's resistance that's unacceptable. The real offense is making trouble.
Hush now and go quietly.
