I would disagree that this documentary is conservative, paranoid, propaganda. The film presents various episodes from Europe where political correctness and the litigation of hate speech has overridden the fundamental right of self-expression. More disturbing yet is that there is every reason to believe that freedom of speech in the United States could also be in peril. Historically, religion has been fair game for sarcasm and ridicule in countries which value freedom of expression, and this is especially true in the United States, where no religion is off limits. Now, it would appear, the rules are being altered to protect one religion's sensitivity at the cost of a more valuable Western right. Even if only incipient in the United States (unlike Canada and Europe), these attempts must be thwarted and reversed while they still can be. Political correctness and religious sensitivity must always do obeisance to freedom of speech and self-expression in a free society.
