Another stupid list. That caters to the people who are offended by everything.

Buffalo Bill was based on Ed Gein though. God this video is stupid.

Blackface is not a white person wearing makeup to look black. It’s a specific style of makeup. In its heyday, even blacks wore blackface, as the makeup was not intended to be realistic.

If I don't like something or I'm offended by it I don't watch it . Read it or look at it. I don't believe In censorship. People could watch or do something else. If they are so offended. If they have this much time to analyze these movies with fine a tooth-cumb maybe they have way too much time on their hands. When i see this kinda bashing of movies I think of real life discrimination , viloence, etc in the news, etc we should focus on ending that. Besides movies reflect the sign of the times.

What about Seth MacFarlane. Movies & tv show. Especially his cartoons have sex, viloence, & adult themes. If people are so uptight about these movies etc. DON'T WATCH THEM . What about SpongeBob ? That's much more offense. I don't agree with any of it. Think this trope is tripe.

oy. These movies are tame In comparison to today's movie. There are pg 13 movies today that have adult themes & adult language. Im sooo tired of political correctness. People need to lighten up. It was different time back then. They are movies not real .

Every nation had slavery. I live in Thailand now and learned that 1 year after Lincoln abolished slavery, the king of Thailand followed suit. Right now today in Africa there are thousands of black slaves being sold daily by Arab slave traders.

This is one of the most ridiculous videos I've watched lately. They were "Germans". That i what we called them. And I loved Song of the South and the old black man who sang was, to me, a grandfather type. I am white, by the say. Whatever that has to do with anything. I did not remember any insecurities or bad dreams from any of this.

Unsubscribe because you don't know what rape is if the person agrees it's not rape even if they pretend to be someone else and if the girl realized it was another person she could call it off if the man still fucks her then that is rape

The whole Gay bashing LGBT homophobia thing is a load of crap. If straight people got taken the piss out of we wouldn’t give a fuck but if you take the piss out of gay people everyone goes oh no that’s wrong grandma style. Fuck LGBT just be yourself, you don’t need a stupid group to define who you are.

Saying films were too harsh on Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia is pretty suspect. Those parties/countries committed some of the most evil atrocities the world has ever seen. Can’t be against some of the other inappropriateness while trying to excuse ruthless murder and genocide.

Ya, we did have some awesome films. They were in my view meant to entertain and used the realities of the world as a canvas and sometimes the fantasies of the world. They were never meant in large part to be moral frameworks, not really. The films today are meant to portray a world as the "woke" think it should be as compared to finding humor, drama, horror, romance and insanity in the world as it is and twisting it into a work of art.

WHO GIVES A RAT'S SMELLY ASS? I am tired of all this political correctness bullshit, and of course, Watch Mojo is in on the game, too. This "don't do this, do that, you CAN'T, you MUST, etc is all bullshit, part of the new world order, and part of globalism. I am a light bulb collector and I get flak because I cannot STAND JUNK-ASS LED GARBAGE! Go ahead, everybody, follow like sheep, to save a penny or 2 a year on your electric bill and bask in the harsh, nasty glow of LED DEATH LIGHTS! This is the narrative these days--say something people did for centuries is "obsolete" and "not suitable for today". SHOVE YOUR PC SHIT BACK UP YOUR ASS! When I saw you messing with my favorite movie, "A Christmas Story", I realized this would be a ploy to try to make me fall into the current bullshit politically correct liberal democrat horseshit and try to change my way of viewing life.You didn't, and I will keep using and restoring and installing MORE of my PCB filled ballasts, 1940's fluorescent lights that WORK, unlike LED SHIT, use incandescent, mercury vapor, and fluorescent and not give a flying shit about "oh, you are causing climate change, your carbon footprint is too big, you have to give in and use globalist corporate idiot's LED "bulbs" made in China bus sold under "brand names" at super inflated prices, NOPE, BITE ME! If I sound PISSED, I AM. I got your "Tropes" hanging in my pants. Fucking PC idiots, go find your "safe space" and hug a teddy bear. ARRRRGH.

@John Bold Yeah, LED sucks eggs. I am starting to avoid stores lit by them now, give me nasty headaches! And no more efficient than fluorescent , so a lie and a hoax. White LED's ARE fluorescent, in fact, solid state fluorescent! Incandescent bulbs are getting hard to find, and the new halogen versions are expensive and have short life. Junk!

OMG what have we become? I have seen most of these movies, own several of them, and have no issues with any of them. People (mostly liberals) have become so sensitive to anything and everything that you can't do or say anything without offending them. I am not a racist, but there is nothing wrong with using the terms Russians, Germans, Krauts, Japs, or any other such term in a war movie. I use the term MUZZY all the time. Muzzyism is not a race or a religion, it is a terrorist organization. I find the LBTG disgusting. So does the bible for that matter. Violence? It happens all the time, and there is no reason not to portray it in movies. Smoking? you've got to be kidding. I smoked for 30 years, starting at age 12. I finally quit and switched to vaping. But I suppose that wouldn't be allowed in movies and on TV these days either. If the person who made this video represents a large part of the human species, then we are totally and completely doomed. Oh and BTW, I am a heterosexual man, and I intend to act like one. I find your video disgusting and am offended by it.

What a bunch of pansies we are raising now! And I’m not alone in this, judging by the comments. Try watching the celebrity roasts with Don Rickles. More to the point, see how his target would handle it (even Flip Wilson). They weren’t a bunch of snowflakes like we are producing today. Thanks for ruining some of my best childhood memories. The scene with the crows, in “Dumbo” was funny (even for an adult)! And what’s with this new made up term “cultural appropriation”? It used to be “When in Rome...” . So, I’m not allowed to wear the Sombrero I just bought? I’m sure the street vendor agrees with you; how many sales did you just cost him, you woke dumbass!?
