Ah yes…one more iteration of the regular schedule of fading actor/comedian/media personality vomiting up some pathetic political or social drivel they pretend is erudition. The reality is that these people are not thinkers, they are not scholars, they are rarely well educated, and they have lived in an insular world — truly a bubble — for so long that they have no sense of the larger world. And to top it off, their much lauded (by each other) skills of mimicry and pretend are useless outside of their industry of make-believe. They are merely dancing monkeys, paid well to entertain.
Monty Python’s Eric Idle says he hates conservatives: ‘they’re horrible people’
He also recalled a past tweet where he said that “I do not believe in freedom of speech for fascists. That’s like putting diesel in a Tesla.”
“I grew up in that world,” he said, explaining that he was a “war baby” from World War II, noting that fascism was “very real to us, fascism — what can happen if you let one person take over a country, so that still rings very strongly with me in my soul.”
He also slammed conservatives in his own country: “I hate them intensely, I’ve always hated conservatives, I’m afraid to say I’m very prejudiced against them, they’re horrible people.”
What a bloviating, obfuscating ass he is! He didn’t grow up with fascism…he was born in 1943, and the “fascists” he refers to were destroyed by the time he became aware. The true fascists were those far to the east, but he would never criticize the demonic rule of the communists over the Soviet Union, because that would be biting the hand that feeds his political beliefs. Of course he lives in America rather than the UK, because he is nothing more than a champagne socialist, willing to spout the rhetoric but never, ever live it!
That he denies “cancel culture” exists is a testament to his stupidity, and to his groveling, blind, unthinking faith in the progressive machine that tells him exactly how to behave, exactly how to think, and exactly who to hate. This is nothing more than Orwell’s “Two Minutes Hate,” and conservatives are Idle’s Emmanuel Goldstein.
So in response to your professed hatred of me, I ask only that you go back to your dressing room, put your clown nose on, and do your job…being a buffoon for my entertainment.
