Little Britain Pulled

Well the marxists are at it, with little Britain being pulled from bbc and netflix.

In my eyes they pushed an agenda anyway

 

Little Britain is being pulled because "blackface".

 

It's interesting how this hasn't been a 'problem' since 2003. But it is a 'problem' now.

This will be interesting, as to all intents and purposes, the "Ali G" character should also receive the same treatment by the same reasoning.

 

Not quite "blackface", but what you do have is a Jewish comedian pretending to be 'black'. Cultural misappropriation?

 

Or is this all some kind of 'tipping point'?

 

Sensible people who responded to the Black Lives Matter hashtag pointing out that actually "All Lives Matter" have somehow become demonised as 'racist bigots'.

 

So what we are perhaps waiting for is the first person to question why Sacha Baron Cohen hasn't received the same treatment as 'Little Britain' to be denounced as an 'anti-Semite'?

 

I suppose 'classics' like "Carry On Up The Jungle" will be next?

This is one of the reasons I do not subscribe to any cable tv/streaming services/spotify/itunes, etc. I use my laptop to download everything and connect it to the TV. I have about 4 external HDDs where I keep all my tv series and movies. I got pretty much everything I want including the oldies like the Robocop, x-men, dungeons and dragons animated series, etc. Just use a vpn to download your torrents. Besides saving a ton of money every month, I get to watch everything uncensored/altered.

This could go on for ever:

 

 

Personally I prefer not to delete history, as it is the quickest way to repeat it!

And when are they going to take all the paedophile's films, programmes & interviews off the screen? Every time I switch the telly on I see one of their faces, and turn off again.

 

I've remembered a couple of the people in Epstein's book that I'd been surprise to see listed - John Cleese and Mini Driver. Get tried & imprisoned, and get their faces off the TV NOW!

They are going to censor everything. E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

 

10 years from now you'll type "Iraq War" into Google, and it will tell you that Saddam Hussein attacked the World Trade Center because there were Trans people living on its top floors. ?

 

 

 

However,  the one good thing is that it exposes how certain famous people have made millions from creating content that specifically targeted certain groups in society laughing at their expense. You might see more figures (Keith Lemon) come out the wood work and regret their past works

This will be interesting. SBC is q vocal on social media - feels that silicon valley need to clamp down on conspiracies, alternative viewpoints. Goes in hard against Zuckerberg.

 

He is smart enough to know that his Ali G persona is really a disguised  piss take on one level against Blacks and to a lesser extent other ethnic groups . The cover is that he is really piss taking people imitating Black culture . whilst he may not be directly attacking Black culture the ali G character doesn't do much to promote it. I am surprised there has been no coverage of this lately - although it is funny im not going to lie

I didn't know there was a film of it. I wouldn't watch it for fear of it spoiling the book.

I like to listen to mostly nonsense (although i am interested in it) ufo type shows on youtube before i sleep. Art bell is my favourite and while some are genuinely interesting, some stark raving mad people phone in and i find that equally pleasurable. Whether its bigfoot, time travel, or any other strange subjects. I noticed last night youtube is putting a wikipedia piece by the video "debunking" the topics in hand. 

 

These people are cunts of the highest order. Excuse my disgusting language but they want to make everyone as miserable as they are.

 

Haven't got much time for actors or celebs i am only 27 and i am so out of touch now i wouldn't know half of them if i walked passed them in the street. David walliams is a bit of a nob but matt lucas i have met and is a really nice bloke. 

 

This really got to me though. Most people realise little britain was the brits taking the piss out of ourselves which i think we do pretty well. Like when the americans make fun of us i think on the whole we take it pretty well. The BBC show love thy neighbour although way before my time, i have seen episodes and even in that show, the jokes more on the british man than it is of black people or ethnic people. 

 

All getting a bit tiresome now. These people are repulsive ?

i actually watched this a few days ago, and thought bloody hell, this doesn't look good in todays world, wonder what will people say. It appeared as a recommendation funnily enough.

 

Next thing i knew little britain was being banned

I don't see it like that. I see comedians and comedy sketches acting out for shows that were not and still are not racist. Then when they are pointed at, the very same actors and comedians apologising like the weak pathectic jelly fishes they are. 

 

I have no time for keith lemmon but bo selector was he in? Was quite a good show from what i remember. 

 

You see these people are in positioms to stand up for their work, for others work. The same suspects, netflix, bbc are letting people down over and over again. Nothing but cowards
