In an interview with Yahoo News surrounding the 40th anniversary of his comedic masterpiece “Blazing Saddles,” co-writer/director Mel Brooks blasted present-day political correctness and says he was “lucky” to have made the film in the days when he still could:

“They can’t make that movie today because everybody’s so politically correct. You know, the NAACP would stop a great movie that would do such a great service to black people because of the N-word,” says Brooks. “You’ve got to really examine these things and see what’s right and what’s wrong. Politically correct is absolutely wrong. Because it inhibits the freedom of thought. I’m so lucky that they weren’t so strong then and that the people that let things happen on the screen weren’t so powerful then. I was very lucky.”

In the comment sections and on Twitter, I caught all kinds of entertaining hell (Kos is especially perturbed) for my review of the new 40th Anniversary Bluray of “Blazing Saddles” and for a follow-up piece, both of which stated the obvious: That today’s Left has become a bunch of  insufferable, joy-killing, censorious, fascist Church Ladies who would never allow “Blazing Saddles” to be made today and that they will someday try to have the film banned.

It looks as though Mr. Brooks agrees with my first point. That’s because Mel Brooks is a free-thinking liberal, not a freedom-stifling, controlling, free speech-hating leftist.

The difference between a liberal and a leftist is not the how they vote. Liberals don’t use phrases like “the debate is over,” “the science is settled,” “ban bossy” or “ban anything that might offend anyone who isn’t a white Christian male.” Fascist leftists do.

Forget about the racial stuff in “Blazing Saddles.” Think about what the fascist gay left has already accomplished when it comes to silencing, bullying, and stripping people of their livelihood. Then watch the third act of “Blazing Saddles” and tell me the gaystapo won’t someday scream “hate crime.”

Here is my review and here are “Ten Reasons the Left Will Eventually Ban ‘Blazing Saddles.’”
