Default Eighty percent of Americans can't stand PC culture

Wow. Judging by what you see in the news and entertainment media, you'd think that 95 percent of Americans love it.

I can't stand Steve Bannon, but he was absolutely right when he said that every time the left talks about race, it loses. And I would say there's one other issue that's killing the left, which is illegal immigration. The left seems to have no idea how much most people oppose it.

Not only is PC "outrage" bullshit -- NOT ONE PERSON was really "outraged" about this -- but it has exactly the opposite of its intended effect.

Heh, I was amused to see that Kimmel said the same thing that was first to pop into my head. Maybe none of the Black models wanted anything to do with that sweater...

I wouldn't be surprised if they had used a black model and someone had called them out on pandering.
