Then they came for Fawlty Towers

The BBC has removed a famous episode of Fawlty Towers:
An episode of Fawlty Towers from which the N-word and other offensive terms had previously been cut has been taken down from the BBC's UKTV player.

The 1975 episode titled The Germans - fondly remembered for the repeated line ‘don’t mention the war' - is the latest in a series of British programmes to be culled from streaming sites.

Controversial Little Britain has been removed from Netflix, BBC iPlayer and BritBox.
I expect Monty Python is next. The Big Bear is right. This SJW cultural revolution is the death of comedy.

It's also extremely informative to see who is allowed to get away with "a sincere apology" and who isn't, as the SJWs begin to devour themselves. It won't be long before the only SJW-free content will be found on independent sites like UATV.

Well done to the BBC,as they have superior morals to us. They protected Sir Jimmy Saville best friends with Prince Charles, child molester, sadist,necrphelia artist,there's also evidence coming out he could have been a serial killer. Saville had the keys to children's hospitals, and also Broadmoor Hospital for the criminaly and mentally insane.

Are there even any black people on that show? There's a Spaniard, but I think Spaniards are considered white.

I know we're well beyond needing any rationale for such things. But I didn't know axes were being ground in preparation for its neck. Not any more than anything featuring white people from the 70s.

Perhaps they picked this episode simply because it's the most famous.

Will be interesting to see what John Cleese has to say about this. He's not backwards in coming forwards, though did spectacularly row back his comments about London no longer being an English city, which he is 100% correct on. I often make the joke when i leave London to go to the shires that it's nice to be back in England.

They've been after him for ages, so now is their chance. Funny thing though, i can't remember there being a single black person in the whole run of Watery Fowls. Are Germans now a protected class?

SJWs are Muslims but without belief in God. They kept the pedophilia, book burning and warmongering.

I was watching a show with my wife tonight - it was about archaeology in Britain. She made a comment about how brutal it must be for developers there, since every time you stick a shovel in the ground you'll probably dig up some artifact.

It made me think about the balance between marinating in the past and looking to the future. We need both - there has to be a balance, but at some point, living in the past will hold you back from the future.

If an Southron is angry at some morons toppling a statue of Robert E. Lee, or a Heritage American pissed of at defacing Washinton's statue, I understand. We want to preserve these symbols that remind us we come from a people who accomplished things. But on the other hand, we can't go through life patting ourselves on the backs because of what our great-great-great grandparents did.

At some point, we have to prove ourselves worthy of them, and tending their graves isn't enough.

So I'm a little torn on the cultural obliteration. Clearly the globalists don't want us to have a cultural heritage to bind us together, and that's why they are trying to obliterate it. On the other hand, we haven't really been doing enough to be worthy of calling ourselves the descendants of our ancestors.

Maybe our enemies knocking down the statues of our ancestors is a signal we've gotten too damn complacent and it's time for us to generate a few new heroes to take their places.

The woke mob will probably go after 'Rising Damp' next. The constant digs at the black character's colour are comedy at the expense of the Rigsby character, but the liberal virtue brigade won't see that. They're miserable people with no sense of humour or irony.

I see "1984" enters public domain next year. Perhaps UATV can plan a televised theatrical production in which Winston first meets Julia holding a tattered DVD case containing the "Kentucky Fried Movie" and she him holding a copy of "Blazing Saddles", then they fall madly in love.

Its also interesting how they use a catalyst event to ram through their plans in short order, without anyone knowing what happened. They did this in Northern Ireland, with the IRA shooting a lesbian being used to ram through abortion and gay marriage. They are doing the same with the catalyst event of the statue being pulled down in Bristol. The thing is all you have to do to defeat this is to defend your position for a few weeks and the catalyst event runs out of energy.

Of course it will. It's a vehemently anti Christian movie.

What about the episode that has that cowboy Irish builder in it? Surely that is offensive to the micks?

Blogger Nihil Dicit June 12, 2020 6:27 AM  

@2- In that episode, the old major tells a story about "taking a girl to see India" (actually a cricket match) and explaining to her the difference between "wogs" and "niggers". I'm rather surprised it's survived this long.

@10 - Rising Damp would have gotten the axe too right now, but it's not as well known. I wonder what Don Warrington will say when it does go.

Can't wait to see what rationale they come up with to banjax Only Fools and Horses.

@23 Well said. In its way this is poetic justice for Cleese/Monty Python crew. From 1969 onwards they took the piss out of British institutions, traditional mores and Christianity.

Blogger Canadian Warlord June 12, 2020 7:22 AM  

Gobekli Tepe, 16 foot stone carvings, possibly farming instructions, certainly culturally significant given the giant size of the site. I know carbon dating isn't super accurate but 14,000 indicated years is OLD. Filled in with shovel-size loads of dirt 8,000 years ago.

19th century archaeology was also harsh on ancient monuments, maybe the age-old tradition of ignoring history is actually better to preserve it. When public interest peaked is when the most scientific 'attention' rolls in to 'preserve' (destroy) things left behind. Those cave paintings in Malta too hard to fit into your narrative? No problem, buff them out. Science! Want to prove that Troy existed? Engrave extra scratches in old masks and suddenly you've found Agamemnon! (that was the cover of my grade 7 social studies text...).

Besides destruction, there's also the later repurposing of the more impressive sites. May really be more destructive to history than actually knocking them down. Ancient pyramids in Asia have been shown as much older than thought, Balbec was not Roman era but built on top of, etc.

I have my own archaeology-related scientific study to conduct, mostly to do with math. Compute the number of sites on the earth, and how many of them are destroyed by taliban, pantiefa, the royal society etc. during the time we can track historically. I think we can roughly compute the age of humans building monuments if we can find the rate of destruction / repurposing.

Gobekli Tepe is covered by tarps and other nearby sites will not be investigated. It does not fit the timeline of ancient man, the iron-clad schedule from the 1860s that all subsequent discoveries must conform to (see also: Egyptology). Didn't those ancient builders know they weren't supposed to be moving stones until our hunter-gatherer stage was complete??? Savages!

Man did people love Fawlty Towers back in the 80s, a real cult classic. What's next to go? "Death Race 2000" with Hermann the German's swastika-covered race car? There's a few frames of video in "Road Warrior" that show 'Hugh Mungus' opening a pistol case with deaths head symbols on it (when he shoots the radiator out on that rig). I guess that's got to go too!

I would like to point out that the entire Fawlty Towers series is available on torrent sites. Of course, I'm pointing that out to show how awful and evil and terrible torrent sites are. Not so you can archive the show for yourself.

Blogger Damelon Brinn June 12, 2020 7:44 AM  

Yes, liberal as they were, Monty Python, like all humans until recently, thought homosexuals and transvestites were ridiculous and ripe for comedy. There's Stan/Loretta in Life of Brian, the prince who wants to be rescued in Holy Grail, the lumberjack skit, the limp-wristed soldiers on parade.... They would have said they were making fun of the stereotype in some of those, but no such nuance is allowed now. It'll all have to go.

There's probably not a movie made before 1999--certainly not a comedy--that doesn't have something the SJWs would cut out. If there's not a gay or racial joke, it'll be something else: too many white people, or a woman staying in the kitchen.

If it bothers you that it's a target, then it's a target. The fact that you like something is sufficient for it to be destroyed. They are following our history, culture and heritage around with the Fabian strategy in mind. They can't couldn't come for it directly in 1965. Now we're on the brink.

A recent report claimed that today's kids think TV's "Friends" was a "racist show."

When Orson Welles's ill-begotten last movie "The Other Side of the Wind," filmed in the '70s, was completed and released two years ago, much of the (((comment))) was about how White it looked and about how this was "problematic."

Many such cases.

I'm hoping they wont find cause to erase Tommy Cooper, Morecambe and Wise, the Two Ronnies or Porridge, which i grew up watching and still love to see now and again. Or Phoenix Nights, or Reeves & Mortimer. Or even Bernard Manning, gawd bless 'im. Better stop as i'm doing too good a job of making a list for them.

Porridge even has a black Glaswegian! They'll probably take that as a sign of white supremacy somehow. Love this line from Porridge the Movie:

"Show me a man who laughs in the face of defeat and i'll show you a black chiropodist with a sense of humour."

Talking about obscenity is talking about obscenity. Monty Python was part of the program ironically called feminism of normalizing divorce, fornication and barrenness. Meanwhile the Beatles paraphrased 1 Cor 13 punning charity with concupiscence to fornication, and JRR Tolkien presented a vision of what the middle ages would look like without Christianity. With these results from removing Christianity from the modern era, and our knowledge of the pre-Christian classical era, we conclude that George RR Martin's vision is more plausible.
I can only keep my baby away from the filth of the 20th century for so long, hopefully the SJWs burn it all down for their own reasons within the next ten years.

"Father Ted" doesn't have long...

The good news is that woke culturists don't have good taste, so they won't see everything. I sat through a 'cracked' video decrying Dirty Harry's racial rants, thinking how hilarious it would be if they saw "Paint the Town Red" where Eastwood's hero character rapes a woman because the town has given itself to him.

As to Monty Python being some kind of anti-English cultural dagger... this might be the silliest sketch comedy ever, which is why its biggest fans are 13. Twice in my life I've lived on the bank of the mightiest river in British Columbia, making the lumberjack song even funnier. English institutions are too serious to not make fun of. Why is Black Adder WW1 funny? Because the Brit officers really _were_ that incompetent. I watched The Holy Grail when I was 13 or 14, it was almost too silly for that age. Made funnier as cultural shorthand than as classic film, "tis merely a flesh wound."

@29- The left makes fun of gays and trannies to this day. Not in the same way. Not in a good way, either. In a severely restricted way that is socially destructive, in fact.

But Monty Python's way was only marginally socially useful, anyway.

@36- Of all the things to complain about regarding Friends, "where are all the black people?" was the stupidest and least meaningful. Because though they probably should run into blacks incidentally, who cares? Upper-middleclass whites/Jews are segregated from black folk. (And vice-versa.) Even in Manhattan.

One wonders if TCM should be taken off the air. All those old movies, produced by communists, Jews, and recent immigrants though they may have been, are full of unbearable whiteness. Just think of a world in which white people existed together, undisturbed. [Shudder]

Blogger Amethyst Dominica June 12, 2020 8:04 PM  

@40. Are you talking about the Clint Eastwood Movie called "High Plains Drifter?" Yeah, most of it would be verboten today, even though there's a scene where the townspeople are harassing some Indians and Clint forces the General Store owner to give them free stuff. You'd think the SJWs would be all for a movie that shows a white man taking merchandise from another white man and giving it to brave People of Color, but apparently not. Just goes to show there's no pleasing SJWs.

The movie *M*A*S*H* is also on their shitlist now, for a scene in which Hotlips Houlihan, the head nurse, has the side of a shower tent pulled away to reveal her nudity to the entire camp. Leftists used to love this scene because Hotlips was a tight-lipped army careerist who hated fun and wanted everyone to do everything by the book. By the end of the movie, the anti-authoritarian doctors break her and she finally gives in and becomes just like the rest of them. But now, because Hotlips was a WAHMEN and because authoritarianism is hip and cool again, the movie is now badthink that must be destroyed.
