Ted Cruz Calls Out Leftists Wanting to Censor 'Blazing Saddles'
Leftists respond to things they don't like by looking to have them censored. If they don't like it, you don't get to see it (see SJWS NOW WANT TO BAN MEL BROOKS FILMS and PATRICIA HEATON UNLOADS ON JACK DORSEY OVER TWITTER'S CENSORING OF MOVIE). Plus, banning something like a movie or a statue gives them the symbolism they need to avoid doing any actual work to fix any actual problems. In relation to our current climate, they had HBO Max remove the movie Gone with the Wind. Blazing Saddles was also trending for a bit on Wednesday. Sen. Ted Cruz provided this simple suggestion for people to ponder.
Here’s a radical idea: Don’t censor Gone With The Wind. Don’t censor Blazing Saddles. Don’t censor Quentin Tar… https://t.co/aTDlslpGKZ— Ted Cruz (@Ted Cruz) 1591820163.0
To be fair, I'm not sure if Blazing Saddles was trending because people wanted it canceled or because people were making fun of the idea of people wanting it canceled and Twitter is stupid. The idea of "you can't make Blazing Saddles these days" has been around since the SR-71 song "Politically Correct."
Having Gone with the Wind taken off the air is a new one. Apparently in the name of racial justice, leftists want to eliminate the movie that brought African-Americans their very first Oscar win. Hattie McDaniel won for best supporting actress in 1940. Leftists had the movie she won the award for deleted on her birthday. We fixed racism, everyone!
Plus, let's be honest with ourselves, these decisions are made not to fix racism, but just so white liberals can feel good about themselves. I'm going to go out on a limb and say there aren't a lot of African-American executives making the decisions at HBO Max. That would mean actual, meaningful reform.
