Blazing Saddles was not only screamingly hilarious, it was a commentary on racism. But now, the snowflakes at HBO have put a disclaimer at the beginning of the film to prevent you from turning into a racist by watching the 1974 classic comedy.
That’s right, HBO has sullied Blazing Saddles with foolish, needless, slow witted “warning” labels.
Get a grip, snowflakes.
Worse, the disclaimer isn’t just a seconds-long placard warning ahead of the opening credits. It is a three-minute-long video featuring some nobody, race-baiting, Chicago “professor” wagging her finger in your faces for daring to want to watch the classic film.
The intrusive, needless jawing features so-called professor Jacqueline Stewart of the University of Chicago, in the city that has become the looter’s paradise.
Per the Hollywood Reporter:
TCM host and University of Chicago cinema and media studies professor Jacqueline Stewart provides the intro to Blazing Saddles. She also did the intro for Gone With the Wind.
A little more than three-minutes long, Stewart’s intro puts the bigotry and racist language in context, the host saying, “as the storyline implies the issue of race is front and center in Blazing Saddles. And racist language and attitudes pervade the film. But those attitudes are espoused by characters who are portrayed here as explicitly small-minded, ignorant bigots. The real, and much more enlightened perspective, is provided by the main characters played by Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder.”
Jim Treacher added that the commentary is pointless:
If you really need someone to explain to you that Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder are the good guys in Blazing Saddles, and the bad guys are racist bigots whose behavior you should not emulate — especially after a plate of beans — maybe you shouldn’t be watching this movie without adult supervision.
Really, folks. Liberals think everyone is a stupid, mouth-breathing, racist but them. And they aren’t even sure about them.
You know. Morons.
