No laughing matter: PC policing would make ‘Monty Python’ and other comedies ‘crimes’ today

The classic British comedy series ‘Monty Python’ is 50 years old this month, but the sobering fact is that it, along with other shows of the era, would not be made today due to politically correct policing.

The Spanish Inquisition was a series of sketches in a 1970 episode of ‘Monty Python.’ Whenever a character said “I didn’t expect a Spanish Inquisition,” the Spanish Inquisition would turn up with the words “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.” The thing is today, all comedy writers do expect the PC Police Inquisition, so they self-censor. Which is why modern comedy is nowhere near as inventive, or funny, as it was 50 years ago.

There are so many things modern comedy writers can’t say, for fear of being branded ‘racist/anti-Semitic/sexist/homophobic/genderist/misogynistic – or a combination of the aforementioned. Even the mildest joke could get you into serious trouble. And that’s a big problem. As Python John Cleese has said: “All humor is critical. If you start to say ‘We mustn’t; we mustn’t criticize or offend them,’ then humor is gone.”  

The Pythons didn’t so much think outside of the box, for them – to quote the zany comedy character Professor Bob Kazinski – there was no box. In his book ‘Very Naughty Boys,’ Robert Sellers notes that Python Graham Chapman was known for his ‘eccentric’ behavior. “Once, when presented with a show-business award at some swish function by Lord Mountbatten, Chapman crawled to the stage on all-fours, clasped the prize between his teeth, squawked, and then returned to his table.” Alas, they don’t make them like Chapman any more.

  1. Today 9/11/19 is the 18th anniversary of the scam of 9/11/01 blamed on Muslim patsies instead of the real perps in Israel along with most of Congress, traitors Bush, Cheney most officers in our Military and others in New York who aided in removing the crime scene evidence quickly out of Dodge. How about a billionaire “top” engineering student from Princeton? Has he used any of his vast resources, including his newspaper the Washington Post, to elucidate the real perps of 9/11/01? Here is a quote from a Wikipedia article on him: Do you know anything about the owner of Amazon who seeks to destroy main street America, aided by his gambling friends at the gambling casino on Wall Street NY? “The family moved to Miami, Florida, where Bezos attended Miami Palmetto High School.[20][21] While Bezos was in high school, he worked at McDonald’s as a short-order line cook during the breakfast shift.[22] He attended the Student Science Training Program at the University of Florida. He was high school valedictorian, a National Merit Scholar,[23][24] and a Silver Knight Award winner in 1982.[23] In 1986, he graduated from Princeton University with a 4.2 grade point average and Bachelor of Science degrees in electrical engineering and computer science and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.[25][26] While at Princeton, he was also elected to Tau Beta Pi and was the president of the Princeton chapter of the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space.” He and his wife also promote same sex marriage. What has this “top” engineering student done to expose the lies of 9/11/01? Zero. What has the Washington Post, which he bought with small change, done to expose the truth of 9/11/01? Nothing. Bezos is evidently a planted dupe to aid in the destruction of America by all the criminals involved, all whores in Congress, all the whore officers in the Military, many whores in New York and Israel traitors Bush, Cheney, etc. Bezos also loves censorship of selected information not to his liking; namely censorship of Jim Fetzer’s book on Sandy Hook after one month at Amazon. Is Jeff Bezos a real person, a real true blue American or a billionaire robot invented by the speculators on Wall Street to destroy America for Israel? I bet Jeff Bezos even favors bigamy and polygamy.
