Our western culture became more and more politically correct which resembles tolerance. There is no way we can (purposely) hurt anybody’s feelings. No matter how delusional they are and how much they will be hurt in other ways in the future if keeping the delusions they have. That kind of political correctness has another side effect, I can pass my BS as an opinion I feel strongly about and demand that my BS is respected. It does not matter any relation to the truth, the only thing of matters is my agenda putting some random (BS) piece of information up there in the public space. The man doing that is called a BS artist. The former guy matches perfectly the profile.
