PC hysteria on the rise

Am I the only one to have noticed that elite minds are increasingly disordered?  According to The New York Times, New Yorkers--New Yorkers!!--have turned out to be bigots since a third of them believe that Muslim-Americans are more sympathetic to terrorists than other citizens. If the guys writing this editorial genuinely think that Muslims have no more sympathy for Muslim terrorists than people who do not share their faith, they need psychiatric help. The DSM-IV is going to need a new category called "Psychosis--PC Induced."
