Smashing Pumpkins’ front man Billy Corgan made headlines this week for his so-called “rant” against Donald Trump protestors and Bernie Sanders supporters.

And while anyone who actually watched his 30-minute appearance on Infowars would argue he was actually opening up the discussion on free speech in America, the Internet quickly cut-and-paste a few choice words into click-bait gold and suddenly Corgan became the Donald Trump-loving libertarian that’s complaining because he’s not allowed to use the N-Word (yes that was an actual argument made by Someecards.com).

The irony of course, is that what happened to him was exactly the what we was warning us about – the idea of forced “inclusion” and how social media has brought us closer to George Orwell than ever before.

“It’s pretty remarkable that I could say one word right now that would destroy my career. It’s a meme and I’m a horrible person.”

Are we one hashtag away from living in 1984? It’s not too far a stretch. With the PC gestapo castigating anyone that doesn’t fit the company line of “inclusion,” comedians, celebrities and even every day fast food workers out there have to watch their every step for fear their words or actions might go viral. One bad day could cost you your job, as was the case with this Starbucks employee whose actions caught on tape resulted in her dismissal from the company.

And while, yes, the ultimate goal of inclusion and acceptance is an admirable one, whose to judge what is inclusive and what isn’t?

What do you think? Is Billy Corgan way off base? Join us Wednesday 8:30 pm ET live on TalkingAlternative.com as we discuss the looming threat social media and PCism poses to free speech in America.

Captain America: Civil War is upon us! Are you #teamcap? Or #teamironman? Did you know you’re probably on the wrong side no matter what? That’s because Marvel royally screwed up the politics in the original Civil War.

Would Tony Stark, a businessman be FOR government registration? Would Captain America, a 40s patriot be AGAINST it? That would be like Donald Trump supporting Bernie Sanders’ policies or Hillary calling for more tax cuts for businesses.

We dive into all of that, describe how the movie universe got it right and give our predictions for what is sure to be the movie event of the summer with the gang from BadCoyoteFunky this Friday 11am on TalkingAlternative.com

This week’s show will also be our LAST at the current time slot on TalkingAlternative.com.Catch us at our new PRIMETIME slot starting Wednesday May 11th at 8:30 pm. New Bat time, same Bat channel, same Batty Opinions, Guests and general Mayhem (SoS is still banned in China!)

Missed anything? Catch up on previous shows like last week’s discussion on DC Movies v Civil War

With Civil War less than a week away we posed the question: Is it fair to compare The DC movie universe to the Marvel movie universe? Granted, Batman V Superman was a critical and fan disappointment for the most part, but it did accelerate the process.

Is DC as far away from competing with Marvel as some people think? Or will Suicide Squad lead DC out of the rear view and into the forefront.
