Political Correctness speaks power to truth.

and

Hate speech is the speech that power hates to hear.

Good enough to make me think. But I wonder how many people nowadays will get the ‘speaking truth to power’ reference? – seems very 1980s…

I hear people say “speak truth to power” all the time. What they mean is “speak the party line.” Maybe it’s more frequently used on this side of the pond now.
