PC gone too far?
Pennsylvannia's Patriot News is sounding alarm bells about a carnival game called Freedom Bunker at state fairs this year that allows players to shoot paintballs at likenesses of Osama Bin Laden and generic terrorists.

"Is this good, clean, patriotic fun or a crude caricature that encourages violence against Muslims?" the paper asks.

The game's creators say the image of a man dressed in typical Middle Eastern garb is not intended to demean any ethnic group, but the Council on American Islamic Relations feels otherwise.

"When they see a figure that's very generic, that's sending a dangerous message that anyone of this skin type or that dress or that religion is a terrorist," says CAIR's Rabiah Ahmed.
