    I do have to admit, it is kind of funny thinking about all the anti-pc right-wing nutters sitting down to rebelliously watch Blazing Saddles when so much of the movie is filled with essentially "woke" messages.

    It's like how people think they need to defend Tropic Thunder from the woke mob because of RDJr's blackface character when the whole point of the character was to make fun of Hollywood casting whites to play other races ie Antonio Banderas playing an Arab in 13th warrior or Scarlett Johansson playing an Asian in Ghost in the Shell.

    Both were major flops. "No woke, go broke" as they say.

    Although I really enjoy watching both of them.

    It was dead before Blazing Saddles, the spaghetti westerns and the man with no name killed Randolph Scott
