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.

One court threw out this airhead's complaint in February, and another threw it out again in July. So why is this a "story" in September? Let me guess -- it's because the media sympathize with her. They want everybody to be just like her. Hey, don't you want to be like her? Sure you do.

This is EXACTLY what needs to happen. She needs to be shown that it's not just a couple of judges who think she's a fuckhead. But it's much bigger than her. This will get huge publicity and will send a message to countless other fuckheads. Then the tide might finally start turning against the vicious dictatorship of PC culture.

as much as I want to cheer about wat the neighbors plan to do like Spy, I really have to side w/Ed on this & for exactly the reasons he states here..... :/

Guess we just disagree on this. I don't see how the useful response to somebody being a jerk is to be a MUCH bigger jerk to them. I fail to see how that will solve any problems, but rather serve to escalate them.

It isn't as if this woman got a huge crowd of vegan protestors to descend on her neighbor's house with "Meat is Murder" signs. She just made a frivolous complaint, which was recognized as such by the courts already. This response is totally disproportionate and only serves to VALIDATE her claims of persecution.

It's not just about her, Ed. It's about the dictatorship of the PC police. A blow of this magnitude that can be struck against them is a golden opportunity. They should never receive any mercy, because they never show any to their victims. This is a vast gesture of contempt against their despotic worldview and behavior.

Again, I very much doubt that this sort of disproportionate response will do anything but validate her claims of persecution, which, prior to this, were not valid. But I'm not going to keep arguing the point, since it seems unlikely we are ever going to see eye to eye on this.

I'm fine with this obnoxious broad getting her comeuppance, but this 3k bbq sounds full of unintended consequences. As the neighboring homeowner I would not put this bbq on. 3k people is just asking for trouble. Most of them you wont know, and many of them will likely be looking for trouble. It only takes a few whackos that want to legit harrass this woman for it all to go bad. Just think of all the guys with beer in them that feel compelled to honk their horns, piss in her yard, shout and make noise, etc. What if a few of them decide to trespass on her property? Vandalize her property? Threaten her? Nobody knows what some idiots will do, and they won't care because they don't live there and just showed up to this shindig.

If I were the neighbor there's no way I would put this on. He's going to make himself Ithe bad guy and give this moonbat ammo to use on him.

What you call "PC culture" I call "basic civility." Try it sometime, mate.

There's a continuum. I'm very much in favor of civility and I absolutely despise when people excuse rudeness with phrases like "I'm just telling it like it is." But on the other hand, I had a professor in college who gave me a "B" on a paper and the only mark down from a perfect "A" was that I used the "sexist" term "mankind" instead of "humankind." That's not basic civility. That's PC extremism. And that was 20 years ago.

Read the comments. Nobody wants to hear the performers' politically correct harangues.

I'm not a fan of Ben Carson, but he's right about this.

That kind of thing only pisses off the kind of people that deserve it, so it's all good. Nobody normal is bothered.
