If you don't believe in "X" then you are an idiot. If you don't believe in "Y" then you are a criminal. If you don't believe in "Z" then you don't deserve to live.
On and on the narrative goes as the rhetoric of the Left devolves into a muddled mess of ghoulish and insincere imperatives.
The reason that the employment of such dishonest absolutes is so nefarious is because when they are spoken by the right people in the right positions of authority, they excite mass delusion or worse; mob action.
In short, through the propagation of political correctness, we are now seeing an uptick in contrived thought crimes. We may surmise the growing trend is toward the idea that what you are thinking may actually be unlawful.
