HBO Max Adds Trigger Warning Before ‘Blazing Saddles’ to Provide ‘Proper Social Context’

This is more political correctness.

Streaming video service HBO Max has placed a trigger warning before the classic comedy Blazing Saddles, in order to provide “proper social context” to the movie rife with politically incorrect dialogue.

“The intro was added to ensure that the film was put into the proper social context,” an HBO Max spokeswoman said to The Hollywood Reporter.

Jacqueline Stewart, a University of Chicago cinema and media studies professor, gives the intro to the movie. She also gives a similar introduction before Gone With The Wind, another movie targeted by left-wing cancel culture in recent years.

Stewart said that “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.”

The 1974 comedy film was a spoof of a Western containing many scenes depicting racial and stereotypical jokes with racial epithets as the punchline.

Some of the iconic clips from the movie can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on how cancel culture is taking aim at politically incorrect depictions throughout media:

Quaker Oats, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, has announced that they will be changing the logo and branding for Aunt Jemima after receiving criticism from the Black Lives Matter (BLM) mob that the imagery is racist.

They claim that “Aunt Jemima’s origins are based on a racial stereotype,” and the image of the black woman will be removed from pancakes, syrup and other products by the end of the year.

The story behind Aunt Jemima is that of a black woman who made something of her life after being born into slavery. Storyteller Nancy Green became the face of the product, and traveled the country entertaining audiences while selling pancake mix. She became a hit across the country in the late 1800s and early 1900s, helping to break down racial barriers, and is credited with making pancakes a staple in kitchens nationwide.

“She was signed to a lifetime contract and traveled on promotional tours all over the country. Flour sales were up all year and pancakes were no longer considered exclusively for breakfast,” the AAREG noted in their article about Green.

Now, a great black woman’s legacy will be disregarded because the far-left mob needed something new to destroy. The corporation caved predictably, showing how thuggery dictates the cultural parameters in a diverse and multicultural culture.

Social justice warriors will look for more ways to exert their influence over the culture, as they attempt to achieve Year Zero for their cultural revolution.

Donald Trump Quits ‘Dismal’ Screen Actor’s Guild Following Threats: ‘You Have Done Nothing for Me’

Trump blasted this ineffective union before quitting.

Published

Former president Donald Trump has issued a letter to the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) resigning from the union effective immediately after the SAG announced they were considering expulsion.

“I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!” Trump wrote in the letter addressed to SAG president Gabrielle Carteris.

“While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice – just to name a few!” he continued.

“I’ve also greatly helped the cable television news business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others,” Trump added.

This is when Trump started maligning the SAG by pointing out their miserable record as a union, which is being sued by its own membership for failing to provide adequate healthcare benefits.

He wrote: “Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me – besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas – as evident by your massive unemployment rates and lawsuits from celebrated actors, who even recorded a video asking, ‘Why isn’t the union fighting for me?'”

“These, however, are policy failures. Your disciplinary failures are even more egregious. I no longer wish to be associated with your union. As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resignation,” Trump added.

The full letter can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on the film industry’s shame over having promoted Trump for so many years, helping Trump build the notoriety among the American public that allowed him to become the 45th president:

The West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously on a resolution to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.

“West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said West Hollywood Mayor John Duran on Twitter.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will have to approve Trump’s star removal for it to be officially bar.

“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark. Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk,” said Leron Gubler, the Chamber’s president and CEO.

Among the stars that will certainly not be removed from Walk of Fame are those belonging to accused pedophile Kevin Spacey, and convicted rapist Bill Cosby.

Apparently, as long as one apologizes, Hollywood has no problem with alleged pedophilia.

Trump couldn’t have become president, changed the country forevermore, and exposed the Left’s treacherous agenda in the eyes of tens of millions of Americans without the help of the entertainment industry. They have now outlived their usefulness, but the ironic role they have played in promoting America’s revival will not be forgotten.
