Are those types ever really against it? They love them that money
that capitalism gives them.   But love the attention they get by

yelling at it too...

Yet, they don't seem SO angry at the machine, in reality. 

This issue is old as politics.

I canc ertainly think of some (local) bands that are Against the Machine but realize the problem with the Machine is not capitalism. In fact, one of my favourite songs for one of this bands goes like "if the government contacts you, it is time to scream, because you are gonna have to pay more tax! [...] tomorrow you are paying extra for parking [...] then you want to use public transport and the fucking bus never arrives"

It sounds way better in the original.

I don't even know what that is. What is it, and what is wrong with it?

What??!???!

It is a Mel Brooks film.

It was written by Mel Brooks and Richard Pryor.  There is a lot of politically incorrect humor in it. The N word was used at least once.  It is based in the old west and is a story of a newly hired black sheriff in a white old west town.

Very funny film, watch it.

 

Trivia:  Richard Pryor wanted to desensitize the "N" word.  He wanted it to be as normal as the label "African-American". Pryor felt people shouldn't be offended by the word.  When people are offended by a word the word has power.  By removing the offensive status the word, the word loses its power.  Unfortunately Pryor's goal didn't work.

its an old Mel Brooks movie, mid 70s. Full of stuff the modern PC crowd's heads would explode over now.

Legal was a joke, but the PC crowd would like to make humor like that legal.

Rage Against the Machine are old farts. 

Tom's chops are epic - politically, the entire band has always had their head up their asses and were targeting the demographic of idiot potheads who drop out of JC and wear Che shirts and those dumbass necklace pouches in the colors of the South African flag. 

And their lyrics are banal. The inarticulate anger of someone with white noise for a brain wave.

Which -

is a deeper lyric and better prose on ACCIDENT than any words RATM ever put to music.

I'm glad I have a copy of Blazing Saddles on DVD. I'm sure it won't be available on streaming platforms for much longer, if it is even available in its original format at all.

Richard Pryor was right. I've said the same thing. Words only have power if you allow them to. Unfortunately, this works well for the get-offended industry.

I should try to get a used copy, to show the grand kids "this is what we used to call humor back in the old days" ( tho some are already in college.... )

There is a millenniumist reaction youtube channel, she reviews "classics" and she has really enjoyed Mel Brooks movies.

I bet even a lot of music ( back OT :) ) would be banned now.

Doubt you would find a lot of Frank Zappa "acceptable" when he was in 'political mode'.  And dont even try the album Thing Fish.. The PC crowd would eat you alive.  Never could be done today.

Pretty sure I have a copy of Blazing Saddles that could be made into a rip that could find itself in a private room on The Sanitarium. 

It would just take a PM. 

Because I think hurting Hollywood studios is social protest.

It is more the principle of the thing to me, at this point. 

I wouldn't piss on a Hollywood executive or celebrity that was on fire to put the flames out.

I donno, not all of the acting staff is bad.  Sure not many but there left that have not be absorbed by the machine, are few still out there. ( and to find them, they are in the process of being cancelled )

Yeah. There are a couple of actors I can think of I might lend a hand - but not many - and as you noted, they're already on the Hollywood shitlist. 

Norm McDonald and that other comedian he hangs with, Chris Pratt... a couple of others. 

But, I'd also let them go down with the ship if it were a ship full of their peers. It would be a fair trade.

I had not seen anything but his initial monolog. This was excellent. I don't think Gervais is on OUR side - but he certainly isn't on THEIR side - and I love *that* about him. 

His contempt is palpable and genuine. The audience is getting up and walking away before he is done - and he DGAF.
