There is a subset of our society known as the "Easily Offended". People in this elite clique are characterized by one or more of the following traits:

    1) They're ready to crusade at the drop of a hat, taking examples of poor taste as indicators of the moral decline of society (see Michael Powell).
    2) They're quite willing to let their outrage stem from secondhand sources, without getting all the facts themselves (see anyone who pickets movies without seeing them, or the local Fairfax representative who sent his aide to spy on a sex-awareness fair at George Mason so he could lambast it from a high tower of purity)
    3) If any of their talking points are shown to be false, they use "the greater good" as a set of blinders and shrug off the criticism (see these people who incidentally have all three traits).
