How about phrases like:

"vote the liberals, Socialists and Marxists out of our Government"!!

Think that might be offensive?

I think the phrase "Liberals are retards" might be offensive.

I'm offended that there are governmental employees with so much time on their hands that they have nothing better to do than to trump up reasons why things are offensive.

Can we fire them, and save the taxpayers some $$$?
