    While I was an undergrad I ran into these same types of people. They'd do workshops (which we were encouraged to attend by our professors) speaking about "primetime bullying", where they would openly call for television shows to be banned. I'm not talking shows like The Jeselnik Offensive, South Park, or Jerry Springer, rather they focused on shows like Law and Order. They wanted them banned for contributing to the racist, bullying culture. The scariest part of these workshops were the crowds- there weren't one or two crazies espousing their beliefs to empty chairs, they were speaking to a capacity filled auditorium, and all the little Eichmanns would cheer in agreement.

    I've said it before in other threads like this, but it's amazing how well the movie "PCU" predicted the future
