Endless Jess : everyone in this comment section: "ha, john cleese is spot on about (enemy group)"

Plato Smith : Those damn, bloody moderates!

Galaick : Extremists are my enemy! Theyre everything that's wrong with the world!

Roger Levy : Oh, no no no. This is all wrong. Quite off the mark, really. Everyone can't be a mix of both good AND bad. Then we'd actually have to TALK to each other and sort things out! I just want to be left alone with the peace of mind in the fact that I'm right and we're all on a 1-dimensional continuum. Much simpler that way.

artman40 : I know cases where authoritarian left-wingers call libertarian left-wingers right-wingers.

Connor Spencer : Rung true then, rings true now.

Zeemod155 : Can like this be mandatory for every human being to have to watch please? That'd be great.

showmemoviesnow : "...and upstart actors" I died.

Sollow Patrickson : SJW

LadyTaraJo : Tumblr has been explained

Big Al : tumblr

JoeyLikesFish : This is perfect... It doesn't matter how true or false your cause is, once you become an extremist, you have lost.

Northern Winds : SJWs and christian conservatives in a nutshell. 

Some Random Stranger On The Internet : inb4 "Sargon sent me"

Rod Prynne : incredibly relevant to today in spite of the piece looking old. Pity about the poor picture - the content is excellent and of course very funny!

AwoudeX : Is someone opposing all the enemies mentioned (left and right) an extreme extremist? :O

Zinny Paz : common sense brought me here

Kevin Sissons : We become the worst in which we oppose.

E. Camilo : He just described the american government, didn't he?

Saxo Ungrammaticus : John Cleese combines a canny understanding of human psychology with a humorous and thoughtful mind. The end result is both insightful and entertaining.

Dank Potatoes : The alt right and the regressive left doesnt realise the irony in making this about their counterpart

Dustyolbones : "There is (almost) no such thing as a bad tactics - only bad TARGETS" -Bob 'I lived in my parent's basement till I was 30 Moviebob' Chipman

Alexis Audoin : If my enemies are extremists, does that make me an extremist to some degree? (and of course a colossal hypocrite)

Clementine : Sargon sent me

DivideByZero : It's funny how people say that right wingers are evil and violent and cruel, yet only leftist talk about assassinating a presidential candidate.

A Gorilla : I feel I am the good kind of extremist. I'm on the right side of things, therefore I am exempt to all of these points he's making. I'm thoroughly pleased that John Cleese made a hilarious mockery of those other, less desirable extremists. You are a great ally, Mr. Cleese.

CMSonYT : these comments are sad :/

Maleific : Just when I thought I couldn't have any more respect for John...

Daniel Baskakov : its funny that on both sides theres moderates, but they forgot another one, jews

556deltawolf : John Cleese should do this on every college campus in America. Then again they would accuse him of giving them PTSD and run away to their safe space.

Tom Bonnell : Where did all the MODERATES GO???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Robert Phillips : Too true. Thanks TB made my day.

Closet Pankin : I can absolutely relate this to my blunderyears as an evangelical atheist. And I can absolutely see this in anti-GamerGate right now.

Stephen Smith : Gamergate in a nutshell.

Julien Dhondt : Sometimes, today's extremists are tomorrow's moderates.

artman40 : But what is a person called whose hate list consists mainly of social justice warriors and megacorporations?

campnfish90 : Still relevant today, I see it every time I lurk gamerghazi.

tjbrinjak : "keep your man focused on the war....not so much his ailing mother....." - C.S. Lewis "The Screwtape Letters"

Mark Lawrence : This sounds very much like a current, baby-faced, orange president.

A : The people calling out a specific group don't get the point of this video.
