Political correctness – Here’s an apocryphal tale

lionA white man is driving a car along a Zoo road when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage nearby. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.

The driver jumps off his car, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and
the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.

A reporter who has watched the whole event asks him, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life. I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page… So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?’

The driver replies, ‘I’m a doctor in private practice and I am a conservative.’

The journalist leaves. And the following morning the newspaper reads, on the front page:

… and THAT pretty much sums up *Our media’s and politicians’ approach to issues. – CINEWS/from A Facebook post
