MUST READ ► My Horrific Experience With A Psychopath

January 6, 2016 -- Downton Abbey has only found success in America ‘because there are no black people in it.’ 

That's the conclusion of Australian comic Barry Humphries. The 81-year-old comic is best known for his Dame Edna character.

Humphries is known for his outrageous antagonistic politically incorrect comments.

Then, again, he may have a point. 

True to this form, he said of Downton Abbey: ‘Why do you think Downton Abbey is so popular in the States? Because there are no black people in it.’ The ITV programme is broadcast on channel PBS in America, and the final series – which concluded in the UK last year – began on Sunday night. — Mail Online
This British drama series follows the lives of the Crawley family and its servants in the family's classic Georgian country house. The series begins with the 1912 sinking of the Titanic, which leaves Downton Abbey's future in jeopardy, since the presumptive heirs of Robert, Earl of Grantham -- his cousin James, and James' son, Patrick -- die in the catastrophe, leaving the family without a male offspring to take over Downton when the current lord dies. The point is important since Lord Grantham's children are daughters -- Ladies Mary, Edith and Sybil, but the facets of their lives and of those of the below-stairs staff -- also a highly regimented world -- have fascinating story lines. — ITV

  1. I'm not really a Barry Humphries fan as I'm not into his snobby Melbourne theater queen bit.
    Although he is a smart man and can be very witty at times.
    Him and the 1960's Ozzie feminist Germaine Greer have both recently made statements about Caitlyn Jenner. Greer said that transgender women are "not real women" and then Humphries said "I agree with Germaine! You're a mutilated man, that's all,".

    Now Millennials are protesting and stopping Greer, the 60's feminist icon from lecturing at UK universities for being transphobic.

    How can you not love it when yesterday's liberals are called oppressive by today's young fascist liberals.
    Frankenstein's monster has turned on his master.

  2. bruce still has his part! what is strange he is a lesbian. and who cares. i hope you get what i mean by part:)

    1. Yeah that's what I don't get with all the "bravery" adulation, is really Bruce just has boobs (everything else still intact) and is dating a chick?
      Not really worthy of standing ovations in my opinion.
      It's a sign of how sick we are as a culture (Conchita Wurst being a similar Euro sign, as if we need anymore).
      The latest South park does a great job of parodying Bruce, PC cultural,the White liberal fear of Muslims and the public need for police protection vs condemnation when they actually do it.
