The person with 5000+ posts was banned for one post that some-but-one found offensive?

Political correctness is taking over the American Constitution, which proclaims the freedom of speach...

I have one interesting fact - there was a swedish childrens books author - Astrid Lindgren and she wrote over 70 books and one of them "Karlsson on the roof"
"
Karlsson is a very short, very portly and overconfident man who lives on the roof of a very ordinary apartment building, on a very ordinary street in Stockholm. When Karlsson pushes a button on his stomach it starts a clever little motor with a propeller on his back allowing him to fly. Karlsson is the best at everything, at least according to himself. But there is, in fact, one thing at which he excels: being a playmate to a young boy named Lillebror (little brother) who lives in this house with his family....
"

This book is banned in USA ( banned in many libraries, not recomennded for private reading, because, Karlsson was suspecting inculcating "subversive views on babysitters."

It is in the country where thousands of new violent computer games released every year, propaganding the war with other countries and nations...

Am I far away from what happenned here ..Actually not - it is called double standards, and on one hand the messages like this can go unnoticed "Bent over Vladimir Putin and valslava" - it is OK, because it is somebody's else's president... but you can't even mention the word black in almost innocent joke...

Sad.
