Monty Python Rescues Comedy, Slams PC Culture
The politically correct culture has been suffocating all aspects of life but none more than comedy. Not too long ago we could take a joke as a society but lately, it’s gotten impossible not to step on someone’s toes about the smallest things.
According to The Daily Wire, Monty Python comedian, actor and writer Terry Gilliam considers himself one of those original six “white blokes”. He said, “It made me cry: the idea that … no longer six white Oxbridge men can make a comedy show,” The Guardian reported. “Now we need one of this, one of that, everybody represented,” he added. “This is bullsh**. I no longer want to be a white male, I don’t want to be blamed for everything wrong in the world. I tell the world now I’m a black lesbian… My name is Loretta, and I’m a BLT, a black lesbian in transition. [Allen’s] statement made me so angry, all of us so angry. Comedy is not assembled, it’s not like putting together a boy band where you put together one of this, one of that everyone is represented.”
In an interview about his film (to be released Friday in select theaters in the U.S. and Canada) with The Wall Street Journal published Monday, Gilliam added some more thoughts to the defiant defense of political incorrectness he made nine months ago. Asked if he believes there’s a difference between British and American humor, Gilliam (the lone American among the original six Python greats) offered a succinct response, then struck again at PC outrage culture.
“I always felt the British are very good at laughing at themselves; the Americans are better at laughing at other people,” Gilliam told the Journal. “I still think it’s pretty true, but it’s changing because now we can’t laugh at anybody because it causes offense.”
At the heart of the perpetual offense phenomenon, he said, is ego. “There’s a kind of egotism out there: ‘Oh, they were making fun of me,'” he said. “Never heard of you. I’m making fun of an idea.”
Gilliam correctly blames the twisted mob mentality we have become too accustomed to in America. Where the few but the loudest of us, control the masses. Can you imagine is something like ‘Monty Python’ came out in this day and age? Or something like ‘ Blazing Saddles’? There would be so much outrage that it would literally such the humor right out of it.
