The Lesson of Ricky Gervais

Did you see super naturethe special Ricky Gervais recorded for Netflix?

It’s one of the funnest shows I’ve ever seen.

The British comedian, known for his sarcasm and snarky humor (he put several stars in their little shoes while hosting the Golden Globes gala), makes fun of everything.

Everyone holds it for their rank: Catholic, Muslim, Buddhist, straight, gay, white, black, male, female, child, elderly, and trans.

“You have to be inclusive! we are told from morning to night.

Well, Ricky Gervais does.

It includes everyone.

Nobody is left behind.


super nature broke all viewership records and became the most watched special in the world last week.

Which proves that the vast majority of people 1) know the difference between a joke and a racist or homophobic attack, and 2) don’t give a damn, but then royally, what the self-proclaimed warriors of social justice say and think.

The hypersensitive little bunnies can scream loud and clear that Ricky Gervais is transphobic because he opens his show by saying, “Remember when women didn’t have penises? (joke that makes everyone in the room laugh) their hysterical outrage goes 25,000 feet over the heads of Mr. and Mrs. Everybody.

Because Mr. and Mrs. Everyone knows very well that this joke is just that, a joke.

A joke.

A to kid.

A witty commentary on the zeitgeist and societal changes accelerating at Grand V pace.

Nothing that could rip his shirt off. Or call the UN.


Do you know the expression “paper tiger”?

That’s what Mao said about the Americans.

“American imperialism is very powerful in appearance, but in reality it has nothing to fear, it is a paper tiger,” Mao said during a speech he delivered in July 1956.

“It looks like a tiger from the outside, but it’s made of paper and won’t withstand wind or rain. In my opinion, the United States is nothing more than a paper tiger. »

Well it’s the same for woke up.

Oh, they’re scary woke upwhen they yell on social media and at universities.

Wow, they look mean.

But they only have power that is given to them.

If our cultural institutions stood up to these little operetta priests instead of kneeling down when they barked, these “big tigers” would lose all their claws.

You know how Netflix bosses reacted to activists calling for Ricky Gervais to be banned from the airwaves forever?

“You don’t like Ricky Gervais’ humor? Now look at something else…”

And they said the same thing to their “offended” employees.

“You don’t agree with Netflix showing Ricky Gervais specials? Well, go work somewhere else…”


That’s all you can tell them.
