and is transgender, tweeted that he stands with the trans, nonbinary and people of color 

I don’t think being transgender and non-binary is equivalent to being a so-called person of color. Plenty of people of color have very traditional views about gender, sex, and marriage. Dave Chappell being proof. But to white liberals like Eliot page, only people of color who remain faithful to the plantation are people of color. Notice how Dave Chappell is expressing his views in the form of irony and satire, yet it doesn’t register to the white liberal that these views are also views of a person of color that are just as valid. Apparently these folks have a very limited idea of what a person of color is. This reminds me exactly of Biden’s thinking: if you don’t embrace the radical lgbtq…. agenda then you’re not a person of color. So I reiterate: being transgender and/or non-binary is not the equivalent to being a person of color. The LGBTQ’s are pimping the black struggle for their own cause. Racists!

Don't like it, don't watch, especially if you're easily offended. Chapelle has been doing this for years and only now he gets called out by the snowflakes.

Dave Chappelle like many stand-up comedians in the West have a habit of making fun of everyone and everything no matter how offensive or disrespectful.

Dave Chappelle is partially responsible for a Transgender person who was friends with him committing suicide a few weeks later after she defended Dave online.

Dave Chappelle is married to an Asian wife yet he makes jokes about Asians being attacked and blamed for Covid19.

Dave Chappelle makes fun of Japan and Japanese men after the atomic bombs was used as jokes in his special.

I support equal rights for people of all races, genders or sexuality but the vocal, extreme minority of LGBTQA+ community are demanding more than equal representation, more than equal rights and expect to be hoisted on to a pedestal that places them above all forms of criticism and public discourse.

The movement more resembles the unrealistic demands of a spoilt, narcissistic and emotionally immature child than it does a civil rights movement. This makes people less willing to support their cause or engage with them. It's own behaviour is toxic, self destructive and undermines the movements own goals.

A movement that supposedly is all about tolerance and acceptance is in fact completely intolerant and un-accepting of criticism or views that oppose its own.

History proves that jokes have been made of everyone and everything. We joke about males and females, young and old, humans and animals, life and death, religions, politics, races, sports, and on and on.

Nothing should be off limits as a topic. As Ricky Gervais explains so well:

*“**There’s no subject you shouldn’t joke about,”*

“It depends on the target - people get offended when they mistake the subject of a joke with the actual target and they’re not necessarily the same.”

The Trans community wants to become an accepted part of society. They are eager to point out that they shouldn't be discriminated against because they are just normal people - and quite rightly so. I'd argue that there is no better form of acceptance than becoming part of the normal every day conversation - which includes being joked about. You can't be accepted into society if you demand certain protections that all the other groups of society aren't afforded.

You have the right to offend and be offended. But you don't have the right to never be offended.

Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right. Some people are offended by equality.”

Responding to someone else’s post earlier in this thread:

- “Dave Chappelle like many stand-up comedians in the West have a habit of making fun of everyone and everything no matter how offensive or disrespectful.” - 

Have you seen Japanese comedians in “blackface”? (Still on JTV and commercials throughout the day & night. NOT “cancelled”.

Have you watched the likes if Takeshi Kitano?

- “Dave Chappelle is partially responsible for a Transgender person who was friends with him committing suicide a few weeks later after she defended Dave online.” -

Perhaps you need to actually watch “*The Closer”*? - Chapelle had a friendship with her and gave her a rare opportunity , an unknown, to open his show. She bombed but he still admired her for attending the after party and making people laugh. He invited her to open again at the next opportunity. She agreed. He was deeply disappointed she took her life and was even more disappointed by the community that ‘ate her alive’.

One deviation or ‘lack of solidarity’ on ALL fronts, and some activists will do everything in their power to “cancel” a former member of the group and their livelihood.

The rest of the earlier claims are IMO, equally unsubstantiated, appear to be fabrications and exaggerations unless the claimant can perhaps provided specific links so others can judge for themselves* ***? **

Will leave the latter 2 claims for others to dissect, IF they care.

Chapelle have every right to be offensive, and people that feel offended have every right to complain about it, Netflix is obviously allowed to keep the special if they think it is justified, but they will also assume the consequences of doing it, it may be losing staff, viewers, share in the market, etc. but then again it may not.

Oh look, unwoke comedy is more popular than woke 'comedy'...

This cancel culture must stop! Whatever happened to freedom of speech. Stand-up comedy is an art. And to be fair, Dave has been targeting not just the LGBTQ community but others as well. He told some ugly truths out there so it pissed them off because most of it is true.

10 ( +12 / -2 )

Comedians cross sensitive lines all the time to make people think. The more controversial they are, the more they make us think. It looks like Chapelle has been very successful in that regard.

"I want trans representation on the Netflix board, this (expletive) week,” the writer-director said.

based on what qualification or merit to hold this position, a board level role, in the company?

A lot of people are just sitting back enjoying Netflix, a liberal virtue signaling company at heart, destroy itself from the inside.

Ted Sarandos simply forgot who his wife is and who his boss is, politically. Activists simply pressured his wife to "correct" her husband. Now he speaks differently, of course.

Today Fox News is reporting that Ted Sarandos is the Netflix executive responsible for brokering the deal between the Obamas and Netflix.

What Sarandos didn’t mention: He and his wife have long been donors and friends to the Obamas, having raised more than a half-million dollars as bundlers for the president’s campaign in 2012. His wife, Nicole Avant, also was appointed by Obama as ambassador to the Bahamas, serving from 2009 to 2011.

then his boss wife:

Netflix Chief Reed Hastings’ Wife, Patricia Quillin, Was a Quiet Force in the 2020 Election in California

Patricia Quillin, wife of Reed Hastings, quietly spent millions on races on the 2020 ballot: She’s not "wary of being too political." 

Just strange that they are going after Dave Chappelle, of all people.

Trans lives have always mattered... just like every other type of person out there.

This just smacks of some Trans folk wanting special treatment, which goes against the very idea of they "inclusivity" that they're spouting.

I would say that Dave Chappelle is far more inclusive in that every person gets a serve regardless of who they are. These slacktivists need to toughen up.

The Show was anti-BS not anti-trans which is probably what got all 5 of them so riled up...

Notice what every article about Chapelle's special, plus every single "trans rights" Wokist is conveniently forgetting to mention:

Dave talked for almost a quarter of the show about a Trans whom he befriended while doing comedy shows in the Bay Area. He didn't mince words about his criticism for this person's lack of comic ability, yet he showed admiration for the person for their stubbornness not to give up even while bombing as Chapelle's opening act.

This very same Trans got into a social media fight with other Trans supporters...the the Trans activists hounded, attacked and belittled this person until they chose to give in and commit suicide.

That was a major part of the Chapelle special. Why the silence? Can we admit the obvious hypocrisy of "activists" being SO totalitarian, so "one way only, nothing else, because we decided this must be so" until THEY actually hurt more of their own kind than any "hurtful" jokes?

This Woke community is so serious, it's killing people. Dave never really hurt anyone, but these folks? They're murderous!

Racists are killing, Blacks, Latins, Asians, Indigenous and LGBTIQ people..

You have to understand it from the target audience's perspective. I think it's disingenuous of him to associate trans as equaling white, but comedy isn't about being politically correct. It's about eliciting reactions and provoking thoughts. Someone may have loved it and someone may have found it offensive. Why the disparity? Let's talk about why it was offensive. This is how the discourse should be. Through talking we can better understand everyone.

This very same Trans got into a social media fight with other Trans supporters...the the Trans activists hounded, attacked and belittled this person until they chose to give in and commit suicide.

This then is probably the single most significant reason they want the show cancelled.

They don't want more people to know they've pressured one of their own to the brink.

Chappelle's decision to share "his outrage as comedic humiliation in front of thousands of people, and then broadcasting it to hundreds of millions of people is infinitely amplified gender violence,” they said.

I think he should apologize and treat this as a learning opportunity.

If we are going to discuss this properly, we need to use the proper acronym: 2SLGBTQQIA+. Otherwise, you are committing the same sin as Dave. You are omitting and erasing people. Taking their humanity.

In her posts, Field said the comic was being criticized not because his remarks are offensive but for the harm they do to the trans community, especially Black women. Field included a list of trans and nonbinary men and women of color who she said had been killed, adding in each case that the victim “is not offended.”

It would really help if Field mentioned examples of the remarks that contributed to the killings of the people on the list

At the risk of spoiling this middle-age circle-jerk. Just because people online complain about your fav doesn't mean it's "cancel culture." Dave Chapelle was just $20m dollars for his specials and in each of them went on a speech about cancel culture.

If any misenfranchised group speaks out about something, a group of unwashed masses descend "hurr durr woke culture" "rehhh cancel culture." Just a bunch of snowflakes.

If you think Dave Chapelle has a right to make jokes at trans people's expense, then they also have a right to criticise.

I've watched his last three specials, and despite being a long-term fan of his, I felt his trans jokes in the first one were kind of uncharacteristically hacky and out of touch. Not really hateful or anything, just lazy throwbacks that seemed kind of beneath him. Other than that, there were some funny bits.

Then, if memory serves, he spent a good chunk of the second special defending himself in the manner of a middle-aged man who's had his pride compromised, and most of the third doing more of the same, while detailing his heroic friendship with an untalented trans comic who reinforced his belief in the righteousness of his cause before she was driven to suicide by the fallout.

It was all a bit cringey, and I don't remember laughing once.

I had never seen or heard Dave Chappelle, so I checked him out on YouTube. He's really funny and only some of his humor is about the variety of fruits and vegetables (F&V) in the sexual orientation garden (my words) and is spoken with humor and not nasty like the fruits and vegetables trying to cancel him.

Most of the humor is impressions of the F&V reactions in situations. There is no lecturing or serious moralizing. He continually says that people can be any way they want, and he jokes about many different situations of many people.

One example is a funny story of being at an art social event in NYC. There was man wearing a dress who was writhing around from some drug(s) he took and eventually fell to the floor. Dave went over and asked if the man was alright, and the effeminate crowd around them (his friends) sighed and glared at Dave as they waved at the man's face to wake him up.

"You mean is she alright..."

He said "OK, no problem, but you may want to cover her up because her penis is hanging out from her dress."

That's just funny.

Pleasantly surprised to find a lot of common sense in the comments.

I am old enough to remember when African-Americans were more or less publicly "invisible." A Dave Chapelle was unthinkable...One doesn't have to agree with him or his style, but the fact remains that America has come a long way...The fundamental problem is that there are certain people who seek a "permanent revolution." Today's "progressive" becomes tomorrow's "reactionary," who is then sent off to Madame Guillotine...If a chap named Louis thinks he is really Louella, I say "let 'm be." But such does not give him the right to be the Lady High Executioner.

The idea that you cannot offend anyone or else you cause them “harm” is a crock. I take it that because the Left has politicized the culture ridicule is only allowed towards those not on their side. Or perhaps by someone on their side towards someone higher up on the victim hierarchy they have established via their conceptions of oppression and intersectionality. This is allowed in order to put the offender back in their place within the hierarchy. Here again we have the idea that equity can be achieved through selective treatment of individuals based on their identity and not on their character. It’s a cognitively dissonant mess of an ideology.

How anyone believes that stifling comedy by placing it within the realm of their ideology will lead to better outcomes is a mystery. It’s just Maoist re-education. You would think that an entertainment company would be a bastion of free speech- but I would not be surprised if they, and or Chappell, fold within the next few weeks.

Because the Left doesn’t tolerate dissent from their orthodoxy. This is a fight for control of the culture and for what is allowed to be discussed in public. Freedom of speech, and even thought, is at stake. They ridicule the very idea of freedom unless it comes to abortion.

You know whats interesting in leftist circles? They push hard on vaccine mandates. They think they have the right to force people to put something into their bodies they dont want on the pretence that if you dont, death is sure to follow. Meanwhile, the death rate for Covid is somewhere between 1% - 3% for most countries.

And yet for abortion, its 100% death rate for the foetus every single time. Not 1%, not 3%, but 100%.

So my question is - If the left is so very concerned about human life, where are they so supportive of very loose abortion laws? I cant get my head around that moral hypocrisy.

Do you want to protect life or not? Now if you wanted vaccine mandates and strict abortion laws, that makes sense, but in all honesty, I have very little patience for leftists that want vaccine mandates and yet, in the same breath, say of course abortion should be widely available

There attitude can be summed up as follows

Abortion - "My body my choice!"

Vaccination - "Your body my choice!"

The hypocrisy is absolutely stark.

I thought it was a good show. He stated his opinions and he’s entitled to that. I don’t think this would have gotten so out control if the CEO didn’t run his mouth about about a lesbian, autistic, Aussie comedian in his tweets. As a gay white woman I didn’t find it very offensive or divisive. I cannot say the same about some of the commenters on here. Some people are just scared of other perspectives or think they’re correct for spouting right wing rhetoric.

So very true! Unfortunately some people (the left) don't think a human fetus is actually a human. They would rather give more concern to someone like Charles Manson who murdered people, than to a future child that never hurt anyone. Millions of dollars were spent on Manson when the money should have gone to the families of the victims. With the left, the victims of crime have no value. Ronald Reagan said it well when he said: “I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”
