The Liberal Agenda: Humourless gelded woke Stuff reviewers cancel Comedy


The humourless gelded woke Stuff reviewers are VERY grumpy at Ricky Gervais…

Ricky Gervais’ Netflix special is a desperate last gasp from a flailing comedian

We are about three minutes into Ricky Gervais’s latest Netflix special – SuperNature – when he makes the joke about “women comedians”.

Ummmm, it was the most watched stand up special on Netflix of the Year, I’m not sure Ricky is desperate, nor that this is his last gasp OR that he is a flailing comedian.

I don’t think the humourless gelded woke Stuff reviewer understands the concept of ‘success’ or ‘comedy’.

But then again, working for Stuff will probably do that to you.

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.

There’s an interesting cultural disconnect occurring between the woke gatekeepers at mainstream media and the populist masses.

Take Ricky Gervais and the Heard/Depp defamation case.

In both cases the woke mainstream media gatekeepers attacked Gervais for his satire and they attacked Depp because all men lie about abuse.

What did the people say though?

Elon Musk has waded in on the debate around Ricky Gervaisnew stand-up special.

Last week, The Office creator released his new special SuperNature, which faced criticism for jokes targeting transgender people. It was then condemned as “dangerous, anti-trans rants masquerading as jokes” by LGBTQ+ advocacy organisation GLAAD.

On Sunday, The Atlantic staff writer Conor Friedersdorf tweeted a screenshot from review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes highlighting the disparity between SuperNature’s critic and audience scores. The special has a 14 per cent overall rating with critics, but 92 per cent with audiences.

…this is interesting. The vast, vast, vast majority loved Ricky’s comedy special and saw his commentary about Trans activists as the very sharp satire it was while the mainstream media woke gatekeepers shat all over it.

The same dynamics were at play with the Depp/Heard case. Woke msm gatekeepers have already screamed this is a huge miscarriage of justice and have refused to see it as a backlash to the #MeToo ‘BELIEVE ALL WOMEN’ mantra, yet the people have spoken.

The TikTok hashtag #IStandWithAmberHeard has amassed more than 8 million views, #JusticeForJohnnyDepp is at 15 billion views.

The disconnect between the Puritan Woke media gatekeepers and the masses becomes even more detached than ever before and this means bad faith actors and Facebook hate algorithms will step into the vacuum of news and opinion.

Meanwhile, the planet burns and the rich get richer. Maybe, just maybe, middle class woke micro aggression policing virtue signals aren’t helping?

  1. NZ comment ‘a day late and a dollar short’ as usual this particular twitterati seizure is long over, did it really take a so-called journalist 2 weeks to come up with the same anodyne tedious crap?

  2. I didn’t know the ‘t’ thing was still a thing?

    Didn’t the rest of the alphabet people reclaim their ‘letters’ and said to the ‘t’s that they’re on their own? Like they always have been?

    Ricky & Chappel are the funniest comedians in the world today.

  3. Politicians that go against woke dogma will do very well in the next election. (That isn’t Labour let alone the Greens btw).

    • Yes agree Nitrium.
      Almost all of this woke stuff came from continues to come from the left.
      The left who appointed themselves intellectually superior.The elites.
      So definitely Labour and more so the Greens don’t fit the picture.

  4. Stuff often seems to be more of a Cooperative Op-ed Blog than a news outlet.. bordering on a state-media/woke attack dog at times.

    Best to avoid their site as mush as practical.

  5. While that homeless kid is starving, wearing insufficient clothing for the weather and begging you for help just be sure to use the correct pronoun as you turn your head, mumble and walk away, it really matters.

  6. Stuff does have a very good quiz section ……………..
    The rest of its so piss week, it’s like drinking a shandy at crate day.

    • funny how those who claim gervaise isn’t funny are so fuckin tedious themselves, like this unoriginal hack no-mark from stuff(ed)

  7. It’s ironic that they are upset about the trans jokes and no mention is made of the dwarves dressed as school kids to detox pedos ( to think of just one gag that left me gasping a little)

    I guess they will get onto that in time

  8. People are just disconnecting from mainstream culture because it’s so awful. Or at least I am.. I dunno about anyone else

  9. So the Heard/Depp judgement was a backlash to Me Too – the fact that millions of women were standing up and saying that they too had been sexually assaulted is something we have to push back on. Apparently it is woke for a woman to acknowledge she has been assaulted, it was more comfortable for guys when we just took the raoes and beatings and stayed quiet. Men want to keep laughing at comedians who have jokes about women having penises because that’s funny. I remember in the seventies all the really funny comedians had jokes about beating up their wives because that used to be funny. The link between comedy and society’s punching bag is funny for everyone but the punching bag.

    • But! Amber really does love Johnny!
      Cant wait for the movie! Johnny loves Amber!
      Who will be chosen to play the part of Johnny & Amber? Brad & Jolene? Or J Lo and Ben Aflect? Or, Harry & Megan!
