Yes but this seems increasingly unlikely now. However, there may be an
alternative.

Jugding by the release-message for 4.19, some people here are fans of
Monty Python's. No wonder - as those guys are famous for being unrelenting
supporters of Political Correctness.

So one would be on the safe side if one just supplemented "Our Pledge"
with this:

"Everybody has the right to be offended."

I think, John Cleese would also welcome this.[1]

What do you think?
