NBC Universal has revealed that it is scanning 17,000 of past WWE content to weed out “racist” material in order to avoid it appearing on the network’s new Peacock streaming device.
Peacock recently won the rights to stream WWE’s gargantuan back catalogue, which means censors have a monumental task on their hands to find any “offensive” content.
“One particular match that the NBC streaming service deleted is from the 1990s WrestleMania VI in which Rowdy Roddy Piper painted half his face black as he faced black wrestler Bad News Brown,” reports PWInsider.
Piper’s comments before the match were also memory holed, despite the late superstar sharing a message of racial unity when he stated, “Now I can stand here, and I can be black! I can be white! Don’t make no difference to me. … It’s what’s inside.”
The deletion of cultural archives is of paramount importance to our new woke overlords since any vestige of how people used to behave or perceive the world cannot be tolerated by the new religion of the cult.
Streaming services are already slapping ominous warnings on old movies or deleting entire episodes of classic TV shows because they accurately represented how people acted and spoke at the time.
“In a free country, culture is spontaneous,” writes Dave Blount. “In America under liberal occupation, everything must retroactively pass through the censors to ensure that it complies with current official orthodoxy before it is deemed fit for the cultural archives. Even professional wrestling needs to be filtered for political correctness.”
Don’t expect to see the following clip appearing on Peacock any time soon.
In the age of mass Silicon Valley censorship It is crucial that we stay in touch.
