Comedy titan Mel Brooks said in an interview with BBC 4 recently that political correctness is leading to the ‘dead of comedy’. Mel Brooks, best known for comedies such as “Blazing Saddles” and “The Producers” has profited from political incorrectness for more than 50 years. This is a man who has taken risks, and succeeded, in satirizing racism.
Brooks said ‘We have become stupidly politically correct, which is the death of comedy […] It’s not good for comedy’. He added. ‘Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks. Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering in the king’s ear, always telling the truth about human behavior.’
Brooks is not the only comedian to speak up against political correctness. Not long ago Jerry Seinfeld complained about how political correctness is hurting humor too.
In a world where snowflakes cannot conceive the idea of sharing a college campus with students who don’t agree with their liberal viewpoints, the fact that a Hollywood legend like Brooks – hardly a conservative – is speaking out against political correctness is certainly refreshing.
We’re becoming a country where you can’t tell a joke of why the chicken crossed the road without a group of snowflakes complaining about your insensitivity towards chickens and how hard it is for them to cross a road! Next thing you know, college authorities form ‘Chicken Rights’ offices, create ‘Sensitivity Towards Chickens’ lectures and fire any college professor who dares tell a joke about the oppressed bird…
It’s ridiculous, I know. But that’s who we’re becoming.
We are raising an entire generation of people who have no idea how to deal with opposing views, debate in a civil manner and live in a world where Kim Jong Un massacres his own people and threatens the rest of us. They complain about WORDS when they should start figuring out how to STOP GENOCIDE.
These snowflakes will be eaten alive by the few millennials who were not raised this way. Sink or swim, as they say – they will sink.
Obviously, it’s all by design – there’s nothing the Left wants more than having more people dependent on government. Slaves who will vote them into office without the need of violence. Like Hugo Chavez was voted into office so many times by the very people he and his Leftist friends indoctrinated.
Comedy, much like any other talent, is a GOD GIVEN talent. People like Mel Brooks have made a fortune by doing what they were created to do. In fact, the JOY that comes from using your talents and making a living from them is a privilege that only a few people are able to realize. Most people live OK lives with jobs they dread. But when you do what God has created you to do, life becomes more joyful.
And yet, the Left is determined to destroy that. The Left is on a mission to make YOU miserable. Not only are you not able to tell jokes or say ‘Merry Christmas’, but you’re also to watch every word you say, exercise self-censorship and scream whenever somebody says something you can claim offended you. The Left is on a mission to ENSLAVE you to whatever THEY say you should FEEL and THINK.
You have a talent for jokes? You better use it against Trump!
You have a talent for music? You better use it against Trump!
You have a talent for writing? You better use it against Trump!
The truth is political correctness is not just killing comedy – it’s killing free speech. Again, it’s all by design. To the extent you fit in the liberal box the Left wants to put you in, you are fine. But you step outside of it, and they crush you. It’s, obviously, about control.
But don’t be afraid, my friend. The reality is that, whether you believe it or not, only God is in control. God either ordains or allows everything that happens – and He has a reason for everything. If you don’t believe in God, I’m afraid it doesn’t make this statement any less true. God is still in control whether you believe in Him or not.
And God has given these artists gifts. We all have gifts that we should use.
'Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.'
