You have a point but it does raise many issues all of which seem to touch on the issue of political correctness.

By the time you issue 5 minutes of disclaiming statments you have lost the attention of the audience ,and as a result your message is lost. We all know what you say is true......to a point. Much needs to be said on this subject and it needs to be said often and to many.

You dont have the luxury of making the disclaiming statments all the time. It also has the effect of watering down your message. The language by necessity must be blunt if the message is to get across effectivly. In this arena we can galvanise our thoughts and take the message to the general community.
