It can be more than a bit perplexing to try to draw the line on the political correctness exactly where it needs to be.
It’s certainly not a science, and the rules are malleable depending on the company you keep, the appearance you’re trying to make, or the situation you find yourself in. These are just basic tenets of the reality that we live in, and we choose to either accept them or we don’t.
With the liberal hive mind, it seems that the latter is far more often in order than the former.
For instance, when the left decided that the best way to deal with illegal immigration would be to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. With the “abolish ICE” crowd on the rise, democrats everywhere are hoping to jump on the bandwagon.
One border state congressman went even further than simply “abolish ICE”. He’s hoping to be able to prosecute ICE for their “crimes” after the Trump administration ends.
If you are a US government official and you are deporting Americans be warned. When the worm turns you will not be safe because you were just following orders. You do not have to take part in illegal acts ordered by this President's administration. https://t.co/BLq48HRkbH

The Arizona representative struck a nerve.
Gallego’s comments go beyond those of other Democrats, even those who’ve called for confronting Trump administration officials in public over immigration policies.
Chris Crane, the president of the National ICE Council, which represents thousands of ICE employees, accused Gallego of inciting violence against them as they “enforce the nation’s laws and keep our communities safe.”
“It should be frightening to every American that a sitting member of Congress would threaten the safety of any person and their family, and incite the public to take acts of violence against them, let alone the lives of those whose job it is to protect us and keep us safe,” Crane said in a statement.
The left’s inability to comprehend the rule of law is astounding, and, if we’re being honest, a little bit terrifying.
