“Blazing Saddles” Now Comes With A Disclaimer

John Nolte at Breitbart

As predicted, the Woke Taliban have come for Blazing Saddles, Mel Brooks’ 1974 comedy masterpiece.
.

No, the classic has not been blacklisted … yet.
.

But HBO Max, which is part of Warner Bros., which owns Blazing Saddles lock, stock, and barrel; and is itself owned by one of those evil, conformist, all-powerful multinational conglomerates determined to swallow up the world, now forces you to sit through a tutorial before you’re allowed to watch the movie.

  1. One of the funniest movies ever made. Makes fun of everybody and does it well.

    “The sheriff is near!”

  2. When it was in it’s first run it was at the theaters forever it seemed. One of those movies you want to watch again and again. And then it played the the drive-ins forever. Great date movie at the drive-in.

  3. 2 weeks ago I tried to explain to a 17 year old (son’s GF) why this movie was so brilliant. Now she wants to see it on the big screen in the basement with us.

  4. “Scuse me while I whip this out…” – Cleavon Little as Bart the Black Cowboy, priceless innuendo writing and timing.

    Between that and Young Frankenstein, in the untouchable category of modern comedy.

    @Huron – Alex Karras, when men were football players and actors…

  5. Back in the mid 1990s, I came across this movie while channel surfing. I had to watch, even though I know it by heart.
    They censored it, but not in the way you think.
    They silenced the fart scene. My sister and I were dying laughing.
    You had all the cowboys doing their fart ballet moves and no sound, until Taggert comes out waving his hat in the air!

  6. “What in the wide, wide world of sports is a-goin’ on here? I hired you people to get a bit of track laid, not to jump around like a bunch of Kansas City faggots! ” – Slim Pickens as Taggert

    @Horrorman18 – HARRUMPHFfffff…eff them.

  7. Blazing Saddles has the best one liners in a movie eveaah!
    I saw Blazing Saddles when it premeried at the downtown movie theater in my hometown.
    I was on a date with my boyfriend of days gone by. We’re both black so, you may have guessed it – a white woman ashamed of how God made her, ran up to us and profusely apologize for the movie. True story. We could believe her stupidity. She talked to us like children.
    We politely explained to her we were not offended and enjoyed the heck out of the movie, but she was convinced we hsd suffered some injustice. the 70s progressives were idiots.

  8. I always wondered what the Marlon Brando character did to the Madeline Kahn character to make her so tired…yes, she’s tired, she’s pooped….I think it had something to do with butter. Hell, I don’t remember. That was back in the day when you went to the multiplex, paid for one movie and then watched six…..

  9. Liberals and progtards need to come with a disclaimer, Warning, liberal ideas are hazardous to your mental health. Please use caution when confronted with anything they say or do. Don’t be afraid to say, “That’s a bunch of BULLSHIT” whenever they talk to you.

  10. The concept of having a good healthy sense of humor being a good thing is given another beating. By the hypersensitive humorless politically correct snowflake jackasses. They ought to be forced to eat three large cans of Goya beans. Several days each week for at least twelve months.

  11. Thank goodness, I’ve got the 1980s “Blazing Saddles” DVD unedited copy.

    BTW, finishing thought from my previous comment …1970s progressives were idiots – nothing has changed except there are millions of mind numb progressives now.

  12. @Blink – Did you see MK in ‘Paper Moon’? Same time period late mid seventies.

    Talk about smokin’ a cig…

  13. What in the wild wild world of sports is going on here? We wouldn’t want to offend anybody. Come on Libs laugh a little.

  14. They don’t realize that Mel Brooks was condemning everything the Woke crowd says they are against.

    Speaking of censoring, I remember the promo when CBS first showed it in the early ‘80’s:

    “Starring Gene Wilder, Harvey Korman , and Madeline Kahn.” The only sign of Clevon Little, you know, the guy who played the main character in the movie, was at the end they showed him saying, “That’s all, folks!”

  15. I can understand how people with chronically high amounts of stomach gas could be offended by the bean-fart jokes.

  16. Humor is not a characteristic of communists. Did you ever see a picture of Marx or Lenin cracking a smile?

    Stalin did smile twice, once after killing 20 million Kulaks, and the other time when he learned that Trotsky had been murdered. Mao smiled once, in 1968 after a successful bowel movement.

  17. On television in the 1970’s they changed this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNTZ5tqas1k

    To “Kansas City Horses.”

    I think it was shown on TNT. So naturally, from that day forward at my high school the students appropriated it for their own use. If someone as a Kansas City Horse everybody know what it meant.

    And I have my own copy with no warning label.

  18. …to continue the bean-fart comment…before the movie I never worried about dropping a huge one in public…after that I was extremely ashamed every time I did it. I got so depressed I tried to kill myself by overindulging in bean eating…thinking internal gases would ignite and do the trick…but eating too many beans of course made everything worse. Damn Mel Brooks.

  19. They cut this one out pre release
    ‘Is it true what they say about you people?’

    ‘I hate to disillusion you, ma’am, but you’re sucking on my arm.'”

  20. “We’ll take the niggers and the chinks, but we won’t take the Irish.”

    Mel Brooks said he wanted to do a movie that made fun of everyone and everything. Obviously, he was way before his time.

    Bart: Since I am your host, and you are my guest, what is your pleasure? What you like to do?
    Waco Kid: I don’t know. Play chess, screw.
    Bart: Let’s play chess.

  21. In 1974, I was sitting in the ABC Theatre in Peterborough, England watching Blazing Saddles. The audience howled at the edgy comedy, until the part where the Waco Kid is trying to talk the townsfolk into letting the railroad workers help built the fake town because they were, shall we say, different than them. The mayor finally agreed to let the Chinese and blacks help then added, “But, NO IRISH!” You could have heard a pin drop in that theatre. The IRA was feared by the English and with good reason. Lots of bombing and such going on back then.

  22. A few years ago the office I worked in we were having a discussion of movies came up and we all started talking about Blazing saddles. The one employee was in her early twenties and told us she had NEVER seen IT. So i brought my copy in in addition the holy grail, and history of the world part one along with a few others for over the weekend viewing. On Monday she handed it and the others back to me and said that is the most politically INCORRECT movie ever. Can’t educate the these younguns any more. he is Insulting WHITE PEOPLE ALL THROUGH THE MOVIE
