One of my all time favorite movies, Blazing Saddles, is one of the most politically incorrect, but yet one of the funniest movies ever is being run on CMT right now.
For those 5 people in the United States who have not seen the movie, Blazing Saddles is about a black Sheriff in the wild, wild west. Heck, Blazing Saddles could have been about very early Las Vegas, Reno, Elko or any other old city in Nevada.
Blazing Saddles was written by and directed Mel Brooks and he also acted in the movie. Brooks loves to rip on Jewish people, among others, perhaps because Brooks is Jewish?
In the movie, they rip on just about every ethnic group and use ethnic slurs throughout the movie, mostly for comedic relief.

The movies cost$2,600,000 and grossed over $120,000,000.
The use the n-word countless times, jokes about gays, the Irish, cowboys, whites, Jews, Indians, Blacks, criminals, politicians and just about everyone else.
So, do you think the movie would still be made and shown in theaters because of the lack of political correctness? I say no, it wouldn't, even with Mel Brook's influence. Too many people would demonstrate where the movie would be shown and idiots like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and President Obama would be leading the marchers. And because of political correctness, we are missing out on movies made by people like Mel Brooks that are politically incorrect but the movies are funny as hell.
