Good luck trying to cancel a guy that’s pretty clear that he just doesn’t care what anyone says about him.
Ricky Gervais has an attitude that he doesn’t give a flying fox fart one way or the other about what people think about him.
Even in the promo for his new Netflix special, Super Nature, he had the same attitude.

A comedian tells jokes and some people are offended by it would have been a “dog bites man” story prior to 2020. We’re now in 2022 and the jokes in a comedy special are making major headlines because the censorious left never wants to be the butt of any joke whatsoever.
Before the special aired, Gervais said that he didn’t think that it was controversial because he was just a guy telling jokes.
Another promo had the opening where Gervais chastised the audience for cheering as he walked out.

The special has jokes about female comedians, racism, identity politics, and Hitler… but the thing that has upset the censorious Left appears to be his jokes about trans-women.
Just a few minutes into the special, he talks about “those old-fashioned women, you know, with wombs” and pretends to yawn.
“I love the new women. The new women are great, aren’t they?” he continues, “The new ones we’ve been seeing lately — you know, the ones with beards and c**ks. They’re as good as gold. I love them.”
He then jokes about transwomen using women’s bathrooms and the lack of safety in women’s spaces with self-identification allowing men in if they claim to be women. He goes on to joke about pronouns pointing out the absurdity of claiming that a man can become a woman because he calls himself one.
He certainly angered the ever-expanding Alphabet People…
Ricky Gervais’ new Netflix special is nothing more than an anti-trans garbage fire https://t.co/ijRXBaX9jE

Gervais blasted the “virtue-signaling” and “dominant mobs” that are committed to bringing other “people down to raise their own status.”
Gervais later offers a strong rebuttal to cancel culture, reminding audiences that their opinion on a comedian’s work isn’t necessarily the prevailing thought of everyone.
‘When someone says to me: “Oh they’re not funny”, even if I agree with them I say “well you can’t say that, you don’t find them funny”.
‘I hate when people say: “That joke was offensive”. No, you’ve got to say you found it offensive. It’s all about feelings, and feelings are personal.’

Later in the special, he spoke about Kevin Hart’s decision to not host the Oscars in 2018 after a few of his tweets surfaced and upset the LGBT2QIA+ crowd.
“You can’t predict what will be offensive in the future,” says Gervais. “You don’t know who the dominant mob will be.”
“Like, the worst thing you can say today, get you canceled on Twitter, death threats, the worst thing you can say today is, ‘Women don’t have penises,’ right?”
He continued, “Now, no one saw that coming. You won’t find a ten-year-old tweet saying ‘Women don’t have penises.’ You know why? We didn’t think we f***ing had to!”
Near the end of the special, he said that he supports trans rights and he’s just making fun of them just like he does with everyone.
100% of the Woke activists labeling Ricky Gervais ‘transphobic’ for his new Netflix special have not seen it.

But it’s clear that he’s right about what they think of his jokes — they really don’t believe that in joking about trans people, he is treating them just like everyone else. They really do think he means it.
Meanwhile, one prominent trans YouTuber insists that Gervais is not transphobic.
Ricky Gervais has been supportive of me, a trans woman, for years.
He is not transphobic. He is bullshitphobic.

The critics trying to cancel Gervais for his Netflix special would probably looove his jokes about Christianity and faith in general, right?
Could we just go back to a time when we could all make decisions on what we thought was funny and what wasn’t funny for ourselves?
That’d be great, unfortunately, the Left wants the personal to become political.
That’s not healthy for society.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
