The Liberal Agenda: Ricky Gervais & the glory of heteronormative white cis male privilege

Ricky Gervais slammed for ‘bigot comedy’ about trans people in new Netflix special

Ricky Gervais is under fire for his new Netflix standup special, SuperNature.

The star has landed in hot water after his hour-long special included jokes about the trans community and “old-fashioned women”.

Near the beginning of the show the actor says, “Oh, women! Not all women, I mean the old-fashioned ones. The old-fashioned women — you know, the ones with wombs. Those fucking dinosaurs.”

People Magazine reported the comedian continued on to say, “I love the new women. They’re great, aren’t they? The new ones we’ve been seeing lately,”

Adding, “The ones with beards and cocks. They’re as good as gold, I love them. And now the old-fashioned ones [say], ‘Oh, they want to use our toilets.’ ‘Why shouldn’t they use your toilets?’ ‘For ladies!’ ‘They are ladies — look at their pronouns! What about this person isn’t a lady?’ “

“Well, his penis.’ ‘Her penis, you fucking bigot!’

Her. Penis. You. Fucking. Bigot!

I laughed so hard at that joke I almost knocked my laptop off the table.

Ricky’s latest hilarious stand up offering on Netflix is as controversial as all good comedy should be.  Gervais like Chappelle have been cancelled by puritan woke censors who claim their jokes against the Trans community amount to a hate crime.

This attempt to discredit the intellectual power and social commentary gold that both comedians present is driven by a belief that good satire should ‘never punch down’, but the problem with that argument is that the puritan woke censors  and their identity politics dogma IS the dominant cultural now, so critiquing the middle class woke’s virtue signalling is EXACTLY the job of comedy.

The joke…

They are ladies — look at their pronouns! What about this person isn’t a lady?’ “

“Well, his penis.’ ‘Her penis, you fucking bigot!’

…perfectly sums up the crazy militancy and intellectual brittleness of the Woke’s demands over Trans ideology that has plagued that debate to the point where people don’t want anything to do with the toxicity and cancellation malice of the woke.

It’s like that scene in 1984 when O’Brien is torturing Winston by holding up his hand and demanding ‘How many fingers am I holding up’. O’Brien is holding up 4 fingers but telling Winston it’s 5 fingers and he keeps torturing Winston until he sees 5 fingers.

That what the woke are attempting over Trans ideology, by demanding on threat of cancellation and social banishment that we see what they see. Anyone who claims to see 4 fingers when the woke are telling us there are 5 fingers must be burnt at the stake as a heretic for crimes against woke dogma.

For comedians to mock that power and laugh at it is the most important thing comedians can do right now and that’s why the woke hate comedians so much.

At one point Ricky hilariously uses intersectionality to point out that as a heteronormative white cis male millionaire, he is a minority so he can say what he likes.

This is Gervais at his funniest and most important.
