When Political Correctness Opposes Lifesaving and Preaching

This is what happens when political correctness runs amok.

This is what happens when political correctness runs amok: Can’t preach, can’t save someone’s life. In the first story, although we don’t know all the facts of the situation, it’s apparent a woman would be dead if it wasn’t for the reaction of Didarul Sarder. According to Detroit’s local Fox station, Sarder was just outside the General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Michigan, heading into his job as a SP+ Valet Supervisor, when he heard the cries for help. A woman was being stabbed by another woman with a knife. Sarder reacted, pulling his firearm and ordering the suspect to stop and drop the knife. The mayor of Warren Jim Fouts commended the action, saying, “Had it not been for his quick action and quick thinking, pulling out his concealed weapon, she might have been murdered on site.” Meanwhile, Sarder said GM fired him on the spot and escorted him from the premises. Sarder was never told of the company’s no-gun policy, though he said he’d do it again because a life is more important than a job.

Meanwhile, a few states south at the University of North Texas, a police officer was a little mixed up about the freedom of speech. A street preacher was stopped by a university cop and handed a citation because “Someone was offended; that’s against the law.” The preacher had apparently ruffled some feathers through expressing his opposition to anal sex and instead of confronting the preacher or ignoring him, some students enforced their “safe space” by siccing a police officer not fully briefed on the freedoms we Americans enjoy. Eventually the matter was straightened out, the citation was absolved, and the police officer apologized. Both situations, however, demonstrate a concerning lack of understanding about our inherent rights.
