John Cleese, under fire from woke mob, hopes they all ‘fry in their own sanctimoniousness and narcissistic posturing’ – By Chris Pandolfo (The Blaze) / Nov 23 2020
The Monty Python comedic legend held nothing back
British comic legend and Monty Python star John Cleese over the weekend refused to submit to a woke social media mob accusing him of “transphobia” for an old tweet supporting author J.K. Rowling.
Cleese, 81, relentlessly and hilariously mocked his accusers, at one point jokingly asking if he was “allowed” to identify as “a Cambodian police woman” if he so desired. The comedian, who has come under fire from woke Twitter before and has vigorously defended free speech each time, was accused of standing in solidarity with “transphobia” after a Twitter user reposted one of Cleese’s tweets from September in which he told his followers he signed a letter of solidarity with Rowling.
Transgender activists on the left have frequently directed their outrage at Rowling because of her criticism of transgender political demands for any man who identifies as a woman to be allowed in bathrooms or changing rooms reserved for natal women and girls.
