YOU are quite right to argue that there is a PC of the right as well as of the left. There is a further point. While the PC of the left is generally honourable, if occasionally guilty of liberal zeal, it is a minority current. The PC of the right, by contrast, acts to reinforce existing divisions and inequalities. When someone attacks left-wing PC it is a useful exercise to ask in whose interests they are acting.
