Monty Python Legend Cancelled By Old Vic Theater For Recommending Chapelle Special

Director and Monty Python legend Terry Gilliam has found himself the latest victim of cancel culture as the Old Vic Theater in London dropped plans for a production of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Into the Woods after Gilliam merely suggested on social media that people should watch Dave Chappelle’s latest Netflix special.

Essentially Gilliam was canceled by the Old Vic for engaging in wrong think.

Not one to keep his opinion to himself, Gilliam blasted the move as the theater caving to a minute mob of woke complainers.

Gilliam noted “It is very sad that a great cultural institution like The Old Vic allowed itself to be intimidated into cancelling our production of Into The Woods by a small group of closed-minded, humour-averse ideologues on their staff, who absurdly, call themselves ”The Old Vic 12”…as if they are the victims of some cruel injustice desperately fighting for their freedom!”

The Brazil director continued “My unspeakable crime was recommending my Facebook followers to watch a Netflix special by a brilliant and provocative American comedian, and then share with me their opinions.”

“They did and civilisation did not collapse! However, The Old Vic’s artistic credibility certainly has,” Gilliam further urged.

He also warned that “Freedom of Speech is often attacked, but I never imagined that Freedom of Recommendation would be under threat as well.”

Chapelle’s Special, The Closer, was targeted for cancelation by extremist trans-activists who accused the comedian of making transphobic remarks.

Chapelle himself said at a recent performance that “If this is what being canceled is like, I love it,” adding “F*** Twitter. This is real life.”

Gilliam’s Monty Python brethren John Cleese has also made it his mission to speak out against cancel culture, ironically opting to cancel himself recently “before someone else does.”

Cleese, who was scheduled to bring along a film crew as part of a documentary on cancel culture called “Cancel Me,” didn’t even make it to a scheduled debate at Cambridge University, noting that the ‘debating society’ at the University banned another guest, art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon, for impersonating Adolf Hitler.

Given that Cleese has impersonated Hitler, and Nazis multiple times as part of comedy sketches and shows, he took the decision to ‘blacklist’ himself as a protest against the University’s woke move.

    New Movie Asks is Alex Jones a “Dangerous Lunatic” or a “Patriotic Hero”?

    Acclaimed director of TFW NO GF returns with new feature film.

    A new film by acclaimed director Alex Lee Moyer set to be released in theaters next month asks the question, “Who is Alex Jones? Is he a dangerous lunatic or a patriotic hero?”

    Moyer, who previously directed TFW NO GF, a fascinating insight into the incel sub-culture, has returned with a new documentary movie about one of the most controversial men on the planet today.

    A trailer for Alex’s War has just dropped on YouTube, teasing viewers with the promise of taking them on a rollercoaster ride showing Jones’ rise from local radio talk show host to national attention and infamy.

    “Alex’s War is an unprecedented close examination of this guarded, mythic figure, and the story of the fracturing of the great American narrative—through the eyes of this man who helped break it,” states the blurb accompanying the film.

    The clip charts how the “most banned, most demonized person in the world” became a target of the regime after his once relatively obscure media empire grew to such a level that it helped elect President Donald Trump in 2016.

    Footage shows Jones cutting his teeth in the late 90’s by confronting deceitful councils and exposing corrupt local politicians.

    It then zooms forward to 2015, when a major centerpiece of Trump launching his presidential campaign was an appearance on Jones’ show during which Trump described Jones as “amazing.”

    The persecution of Jones in the form of his sustained demonization and deplatforming, which intensified after January 6, is also documented.

    “OK, let’s put me in prison for questioning, even though that’s my right,” states Jones in the documentary. “In fact let’s execute Alex Jones, let’s put me in front of a firing squad and pull the trigger.”

    “I have a sick feeling actually, because I know what comes next,” he adds.

    The movie will be showing in select theaters on July 29th and will be available for video download on the same date.

    Poll Finds Half Of Americans Rank Moral Values In Country As “Poor”

    Only 13 percent think moral values are ‘good or excellent’

    A new Gallup poll has found that 50 percent of Americans rank moral values in their country currently as “poor,” with only 13 percent saying those values are good.

    The poll found that 37 percent rate moral values as ‘fair’, but only 1 percent rate them as excellent.

    Gallup notes that it is the worst ranking of moral values among American for two decades, and that an already negative trend has worsened.

    “While the amount of Americans who rate the moral values of the country as poor has been fairly consistent over the last five years, the number did decline to 43% in 2020 before rising again in the last two years,” the pollster notes.

    When looked at through the lens of politics, it comes as little surprise that more Democrats currently rank moral values in the country as good or excellent.

    A total of 72 percent of Republicans rated moral values as “poor,” while just 36 percent of Democrats concurred.

    On the flip side, 48 percent of Democrats ranked moral values as “fair” with 15 percent rating them as “excellent.”

    What the hell are those people smoking?

    The poll also found that a total of 78 percent of Americans believe things are going to get worse.

    “Americans’ views of the state of moral values in the U.S. are dismal,” Gallup asserted, adding “and their expectations for the future are grim.”

    Gallup also found that a belief in God among Americans has fallen to an all time low, with 17 percent in total saying they do not believe. The pollster notes that the demographic most opposed to belief in God are young liberals.
