Legendary Comedian John Cleese Slams Cancel Culture Run By “Emotionally Unstable, & Fragile People”

(Tea Party 247) – It’s always refreshing when celebrities take bold public stances against the left and their ridiculous antics. One of the most soul-sucking, draining, and absurd practices the left has adopted is “cancel culture” in which anybody, anywhere can be punished via things like job loss, show cancellation, removal from social media platforms, and whatever other means the left can employ to damage and destroy someone who has at literally any point in their entire lives said or done anything even remotely offensive.

Cancel culture, however, does not typically apply to leftists. They can say literally anything with impunity (Joe Biden: “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him) and the left most definitely will not hold other leftists accountable for anything they’ve said in the past (example: Ilhan Omar and her overtly anti-Semitic twitter posts).

Being a conservative and a celebrity is a dangerous game and not one that many are willing to play. When a celebrity “comes out” as a conservative it opens them up to the wrath of cancel culture among lots and lots and lots of hate and vilification.

Comedian John Cleese is the latest celebrity to join the ranks of the sane. Zero Hedge has the story:

Former Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star John Cleese has had enough of political correctness and the cancel culture, and as for the state of the “dysfunctional world we live in,” warning that “it’s completely hopeless…”

As for the sense of hopelessness he feels, Cleese blames the “power seekers.”

“I believe there’s something wrong with these people. The reason they want to be powerful is that they want to control people, so that they don’t get lathered into situations that they can’t control emotionally. The one thing they fear is losing power, so they’ll do almost anything to hold on to it.

If they don’t know what they’re doing or what they’re talking about, there’s no way (the world) will ever get well.”

The 80 year old comedian is as politically savvy as he is humorous as he brings his one-man-show “Why There Is No Hope” to live-stream after blasting the BBC last month as “cowardly and gutless” for temporarily taking down an episode of Fawlty Towers that made fun of Germans and World War II and also featured a character using a racial slur.

Cancel culture “misunderstands the main purposes of life which is to have fun”, Cleese told Reuters, referring to the trend in which people are ostracised because of behaviour or remarks seen as objectionable.

“Everything humorous is critical. If you have someone who is perfectly kind and intelligent and flexible and who always behaves appropriately, they’re not funny. Funniness is about people who don’t do that, like Trump.”

Summing the current state of the world up perfectly, Cleese says, the problem with political correctness, he added, is that comedians “have to set the bar according to what we are told by the most touchy, most emotionally unstable and fragile and least stoic people in the country”.

He really hit the nail on the head there. Liberals ruin everything they touch and they’ve got their hands all over America.

    • Don’t believe it. The UK is just as bad as America. Ask Lawrence Fox (Actor in Lewis and many others) He speaks out and like Cleese gets hammered for it. I am from the UK originally, was thinking of going back there, but it is as sick as the Liberals in America.

  19. Certainly, the leftists of the world just want to cancel all other thoughts, without so much as a reading of the minds of those of us whose ideas differ from theirs. I really don’t care what the hollywood left has to say about the President, but if Biden is ever elected, we are so screwed, it is unimaginable.

  20. He is right when he calls people wanting to cancel culture as unstable and fragile, but that is being too kind. Those who want to destroy our heritage, culture, and history are totally self-centered nuts. It is like the NYT wanting to change history to project 1619, (to coincide with the slaves coming to the new world) instead of the Independence 1776 as being the beginning our Republic.

    Have these people completely lost what ever common sense they had? I do not know what the rest of this country thinks, but I am over this race bull ship. Granted minorities in this country were treated badly, and granted it has taken a lot of time getting past it. But no one hand fed my family, and nothing worth having is free. The black minority has an identy problem, who can respect someone who does not respect themselves, respect or being free is earned it is not a given for anyone.

    Lets face facts for a change: for over 50 years, the new deal, other black prefered goverment programs have taken place and what has improved? Nothing, acually it is worse today then it was in the 40s,50s,60s,70s,80s 90s. 3rd generation blacks are still on welfare, the ghettoes have just move to different areas, the shacks are still there with the Cadilacs, the children are fatherless, the crime rate has expanded, they are still thousands uneducated, And why? not because of the lack of moines thrown their way? So its either poor black leadership or lack of Pelosi’s OVERSITE. A waste. In the last year two black civil rights leaders have died, both serving in our Congress, they made something for themselves, they helped stop the wrongs of the 60s, but then what? Johnson had the new deal, other pandering programs were initiated, Abortions took may black lives, but tell me what has changed? Billions have been spent and what is the end result, what is the return we or they got? Who got rich?, the so called non profits,and the so called black leaders. Al Sharpton Jessi Jackson, the Congressmen and women, Aunti Waters, you name them.

    AND THEY HAVE THE ORDASITY TO CALL PEOPLE LIKE ME RACIST! BLM is a Marxist Organization, Mr Soros is as Anti American as you can get, ANFIFA is a bucn of unhinged power hungy mongers looking to rule this country with the help of people like Pelosi, Schumer, AOC and the rest of the Progress Jackass. But its TRUMPS FAULT. How stupid can we get?

  21. Cancel culture! What a nonsens.Love John Cleese.Not many so called stars are coming out.I admire the ones who do.I am afraid for this country.I am afraid when I see a video where 3 black people start a fight with a white mother with a baby on her lap.I am afraid for this country because people are video taping this instead of helping.I am afraid white people feel too guilty.I do not feel guilty and I will not kneel for a black person.Listen to Buddy Brown he has a word or two to tell you about being privileged.Google it !

  22. These people have joyless lives. They see everything from a dark side (I hope we can still use the term “dark side”). Fortunately for us and unfortunately for them, people who approach life from that angle tend to suffer from various mental diseases and disorders, depression being very prevalent. These illnesses often times lead to destructive and reckless behaviors, as alcoholism, drug usage, etc. This cuts years off one’s life. In essence, while trying to make our lives miserable, they are hastening their own demise. Gotta take that “glass half full” attitude to be happy and they will never be. Just imagine what “fun” it must be to be around Joy Behar, Alyssa Milano, Bette Midler, Cher, Robert DeNiro, Joy Reid, Don Lemon, Fredo Cuomo, oh heck, almost 100% of Hollywood, MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, WAPO, etc.

    • You sure got that right! What a pack of raving, miserable fools and hypocrites! I wouldn’t change places with any of these degenerate creeps for all of their money! They are truly miserable and undoubtedly deserve to be!

  23. I remember “Fawlty Towers” and the shows were a real hoot! Good for Cleese that he stood up to the BBC! “Cancel Culture” needs to be cancelled permanently!.

  24. What the Hollywood people haven’t realized yet is that the majority of Americans don’t listen to them or care what they have to say. They give themselves way to much credit to actually think that we care about their options or that just bc they have a platform to speak that they can sway American voters, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP obviously no one listens to you. So do us all a favor and STFU. Mr. Cleese I have the utmost respect for you, for your talent and wisdom, to bad all the other Hollywood idiots wisdom is up their ASS

    • Suzy, you are so correct. Isn’t the cancel culture so boring? These people are so predictable I for one no longer listen. When the cancel culture people, like Alyssa Milano and Tina Fey, get canceled, then it becomes mildly humorous but extremely scary because you now know these cancel culture people are rudderless.
