Nobody sane denies there is a legacy.

The differences of opinion are over what caused it, what perpetuates it and how to address it.

Accusing the right of dehumanising tactics is amusing, as stereotyping the right as, oh for instance, being chimps, isn't new.

See here's the thing. The rights attitude that "everything is a joke" ignores historical context. Note that the source of this attitude all links back to "gamergate" and the online gaming crowd. The problem is these folks grew up under progressive language intolerance, resenting it without understanding what birthed it. Hundreds of years of real racial, and gender oppression. We are living with those after-effects now.

 
Yes, that is where it came from, but PC overdoes it today.
 
And for adolescents nothing is more fun than poking fun at those that claim authority. Always has been part of them to be without respect. And on the internet you will always find someone being offended by something and make him or her scream.

The Pepe/gamergate/Kek crowd are no longer "adolescents". Yet they still rejoice offending people.

Its jot about being sane, its about being informed. The problem is both sides tend to default to negative responses, mainly due to the negative emotions they elicit. That the left engages in language intolerance does not mean the right's efforts are validated, especially given historical context. The right certainly has the right to be offensive, but they don't have the right to not be criticized for it.
