    Post Blazing Saddles - 45 years old - the movie that couldn’t be made today!

    Blazing Saddles - 45 years old - the movie that couldn’t be made today! There probably isn't a scene in Blazing Saddles that wouldn't grievously offend the modern snowflake. The SJWs will tell you that's because we've (they've) evolved, and they would be wrong. When everything is offensive, nothing is offensive. That has a double meaning that applies to both sides here. It is difficult to take the present-day SJWs seriously when they complain, because they complain about virtually everything. What Brooks and Co. did is make sure that they offended everyone, which made it funny. When everything is offensive, nothing is offensive.


    It's almost sickening to think of the fact that we've gone from a society capable of creating and supporting something as masterful as Blazing Saddles to one filled with humorless youth who would protest it to death before it could get released in just forty-five years.

    I'm surprised it hasn't been banned like the WWII Bugs Bunny cartoons.

    Whenever I watch it, I laugh my Pelosi off but then I make sure that I denounce myself for enjoying it.

    Hilarious movie, I dont like watching movies twice, there are a few that are just so goo you can watch them again and again.

    Blazing Saddles made fun of everyone, but it's true that it could not be made today.

    The first time I saw it on public TV (channel 38 Boston, that's right I'm naming names) they shredded it, they literally removed every funny thing about it...
    They ruined it IMHO.
