When Comedy Was Funny

We knew this was coming. The SJW’s would have to get here eventually.

Forty-five years ago, Mel Brooks made what many critics agree is the single, funniest film in Hollywood history. Blazing Saddles is not only an iconic comedy, but its social message about racism is also among the finest examples of using satire to make a serious point that you could find.

Now, four decades after it was released, the film has come under fire by social justice warriors because of its portrayal of white racism as comedy. Indeed, it’s hysterically funny.

I remember when this movie came out. We were only a few years removed from the victorious end of the Civil Rights Movement. Racism was now taboo. And Americans still had a sense of humor.

Social Justice Warriors are like Arthurian knights on a quest to slay dragons and rescue damsels in distress, long after the last dragons were dead. The struggle to end segregation and give voting rights to black Americans has devolved into protests over microaggressions and demands for racial safe spaces.

I would advise anyone who wants to ever see Blazing Saddles in the future to buy a DVD now before they are banned.

    I cannot think of any other movie that was hilariously funny from beginning to end. Every scene is funny.

    Funniest movie ever.

    From In Living Color, back in the days when Jim Carrey was funny. Y’know the days when we could laugh at ourselves ?

    I catch part of an anti-vaping PSA warning people about the dangers of teen vaping and the first thought through my mind is “Which cigarette company paid for the ad?”

    • 1539days says:

      Cigarette companies are getting into the vaping business. Most of those PSAs are from the scolds at truth.com who figured out there’s fewer smokers and they need to ruin a good time for new people.

    So many movies could never be made today- Silence of the Lambs, Dressed to Kill, Sleepaway Camp, Animal House, The Toy, Heathers.

      Biological females will be second class citizens. Yay!

    • blowme0bama says:

      This was what was so WRONG about the Obama era: EVERYTHING that should have been a footnote for remedial action was the entire FOCUS of their efforts while everything that were the basic responsibilities of government to its citizens were sluffed off as immaterial.

        Allowing males in female bathrooms was the best for perverts that include all the assholes who post nude Melania photos on Facebook and Twatter.

        Sounds like Seattle. Of course nothing gets done here because the Progressives in control focus on a problem and then virtue signal at it and call it done.

    there is one itsy-bitsy part of me that feels sorry for the SJWs. Can you imagine how horrible it must be to go through life, looking for things to be outraged about? No laughter allowed, never ever enjoy anything. I really would not want to live that way. No wonder they want to kill babies, there is nothing enjoyable in their view of life that makes it worth bringing a child into it

    remember when you could go to a show or concert just to enjoy the music?
    my first instinct is to tell this twit to go to hell and tell all my friends not to buy tickets
    I guess entertainers are not interested in audiences any more.

    The Londonstan shit actually, I think, helps Trump. Leftists can always be counted on to not think things through.. Dissing a sitting American president stirs yp patriotism.

    They say you can take a girl out of country but you can’t take country out of the girl. But Tay never really was country – she’s from Reading, PA.

    • lyn says:

      She supports second-class status for biological females.

    • Mothy67 says:

      I think she is trying to stay current. My brat loved her 5 years ago now she’s meh. I think she should have steered away from politics especially with Cat’s coming out soon. Most artists don’t have very long careers and seriously doubt her fans would have abandoned her for silence on politics and doubt the antifa crowd is going to rush out to get her next cd.

    The Siege is on hbo. I am surprised. 1998 Denzel film about terrorist cells in NY. Many shots of the skyline pre 9/11. I would have thought they’d bury it.

    FWIW, I downloaded from Audible.com…..(I think I saw a good review at Instapundit)
    “Sacred Duty”
    “A Soldier’s Tour at Arlington National Cemetery” by Sen. Tom Cotton

    Very interesting… history of Arlington Cemetery and History of “The Old Guard” and the how and what they do at Arlington and as ceremonial troops. (Sen Cotton was a member of the Old Guard between his combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.) Lots of interesting factoids such as the CCG (Colonial Color Guard) are the most physically fit in the US Army (80% wash out and they need to pass “tests” such as standing at rigid attention for 3 hours in a room heated to 90 degrees and 100% humidity. Next time I seem them doing their “thing” with the funny hats and uniforms, I will look at them very differently.

      I got it from Amazon on my kindle. Have not started to read it yet

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I had read about this book a while back. Thanks for the reminder it is out and to add to my kindle list.

      • SHV says:

        Looked up Tom Cotton’s bio, interesting guy. It’s, as if as a child, he developed a life plan with a check list. Grew up on family cattle farm/small town Arkansas, public schools. Decided, in high school, he wanted go to Harvard, which he did, graduating in three years with honors, Harvard Law School, clerkship with Federal Judge, worked a couple of years at high $$ law firms to pay off student loans. Joined the Army, 101st Airborne, Air Assault platoon leader (Ranger badge, Parachutist badge, Air Assault badge, Bronze Star, etc.) “Old Guard” at Arlington, combat tour in Afghanistan, back on to family farm, US Congress, US Senate……check, check, check….next Presidential run in 10 years???? check!

    Wow wiki on Cloward-Priven
    We can see this strategy implemented right now in California where many cities are so-called sanctuary cities and the state proclaims itself a sanctuary state. We further see it in the disturbing public health situations in San Francisco [11]

    And Los Angeles, as well as other metropolitan areas. The Los Angeles public health problems are reaching epidemic proportions.

    I think Chicago’s new super diversity mayor, Lori Lightgroot is not having a good weekend, especially after saying Chicago has a police problem. “It’s long overdue that the City Council act swiftly in the first 100 days to pass the ordinance proposed by the Grass Roots Alliance for Police Accountability, or GAPA, to create civilian oversight of the Chicago Police Department.”

    This weekend is “fix’n” to set at record, so far, 47 shot and 9 killed. Lori be: “shit or go blind”. “shit or go blind”, “police bad”, “police bad”
