‘Monty Python’ Clip Mocking Trans Ideology Goes Viral: ’40 Years Ahead Of Their Time’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Amanda Harding.

    A clip from the comedy film "Monty Python's Life of Brian" is making rounds on social media, with viewers noticing how it's a commentary on trans ideology that seemed to predict modern arguments.

    "For anyone wondering why [Elon Musk] loves Monty Python. Just 40 years ahead of their time!" the original poster shared.

    Musk commented on the clip, saying, "They saw this coming in the 70's!"

    Actor John Cleese, who wrote and starred in the 1979 comedy, also commented on the scene. "No complaints about this scene for 45 years," he shared while re-tweeting the clip. "But they will start any time next week."

    In the clip, the character Stan (Eric Idle) confesses his desire to become a woman.

    "I want to be a woman. From now on I want you all to call me Loretta," Stan tells his friends while they're sitting in a Roman amphitheater. "It's my right as a man."

    When asked why he wants to be a woman, Stan replies that it's because he "wants to have babies."

    "It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them," he says as his friends express their shock. "Don't you oppress me."

    "I'm not oppressing you, Stan; you haven't got a womb," Reg (Cleese) argues. "Where's the fetus going to gestate? You going to keep it in a box?"

    When Stan starts crying, Judith (Sue Jones-Davies) jumps in with a suggestion. "Here! I've got an idea," she says. "Suppose you agree that he can't actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody's fault, not even the Romans,' but that he can have the right to have babies," she says.

    When Reg asks, exasperated, what the "point" of making that concession is, Francis (Michael Palin) says, "It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression."

    "It's symbolic of his struggle against reality," Reg retorts.

    Cleese has been vocal in his stance against woke concepts in the past. The British actor and comedian just said during an interview with Reason that "wokeism" represents "the internal interruption" of the creative process.

    "You think of an idea and you immediately think: 'Oooh, is that going to get me into trouble? Well, that person last Thursday got away with it,'" Cleese told the publication, as The Daily Wire previously reported. "But all that stuff immediately stops you being creative."

    "The woke people, I think, miss something quite badly," he continued. "The meaning of a word depends on its context. If I use sarcasm, then what I'm meaning is the opposite of the words I'm actually saying. If you don't get irony, then if you take it seriously, you completely misunderstand the intention of the writer or speaker."

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
