Monty Python's Eric Idle blasts anti-woke comedians, says he loathes conservatives: 'I hate them intensely'

https://www.foxnews.com/media/monty-pythons-eric-idle-blasts-anti-woke-comedians-loathes-conservatives-hate-them-intensely

Swisher asked, "How do you look at cancel culture today, because now everybody is watched under great scrutiny," asking if Idle had seen the recent Dave Chappelle's monologue on "Saturday Night Live."

"What do you think of the comedians like Dave Chappelle, for example, who’s saying that he’s being subjected to censorship?" she asked.

Idle appeared to disregard Chappelle’s claim that cancel culture is a phenomenon because, "Well where does he say it? On SNL," later adding, "Well you’re not being that much canceled, are you? If you were in your room complaining I’d have a lot more sympathy."

"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."

4. The ability to not waver in their alternative facts isn't the badge of honor they think it is.

10. Yup. And there's a reason I set my sig line to what it is.

A lot of it is based on personal experience, observation, paying attention to things almost since the Bill Clinton administration.

I remember Limbaugh had TV show at the time and all I saw was a lot of bluster and accusation without anything to back it up.

And Eric Idle is right, they can and will do some horrible things if given free reign with no restraint. History proves this over and over again.

6. Thank goodness at least one member of Monty Python hasn't turned into a dickhead in his old age.

Terry Gilliam's an incredibly whiny card-carrying member of the White Male Victimhood:

John Cleese became the very same bigoted posh-twit he used to mock:

Terry Jones and Graham Chapman have passed away, while to my knowledge Michael Palin has kept out of "controversy."

7. Fox News/New York Post love this! Liberal saying he hates conservatives: See! Liberals are the

intolerant ones, we conservatives are the innocent victims of their irrational hate. Liberal who "blasts anti-woke" comedians and others: See! Liberals are the snowflakes.
