Dave Chappelle just can’t catch a break these days.
He survived one cancellation attempt by radical Left-wing activists.
But now they are back for more, and they are trying to destroy his career yet again.
Dave Chappelle has been one of the most popular and successful comedians in the world for decades now. He is a legend of comedy who will be remembered for generations.
But nothing gives the Left more satisfaction than trying to tear down great people.
They are already attempting to destroy the legacy of Founding Fathers like Thomas Jefferson, by infiltrating his Monticello Estate and filling it with woke symbolism that bashes his legacy.
They have gone after athletes like Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers, in Brees’ case for criticizing Colin Kaepernick, and in Rodgers’ case for not getting the vaccine.
One of their biggest targets, though, has been Chappelle. That’s because comedy holds a special place of hatred in the heart of Left-wing activists.
Comedy is the enemy of moralists everywhere. Comedians make fun of everything and don’t hold back.
South Park, for example, is famous for making fun of different religions, from Islam to Mormonism to Judaism to Christianity, as well as atheism.
Moralists hate it, but people who can take a joke understand that it’s just that – a joke.
The woke mob, however, is as holier-than-thou and moralistic as anybody in America. And they cannot tolerate the idea that a comedian might make a joke about, for example, trans people or Jews.
Dave Chappelle has now done both of those things. His first run-in with the woke mob was when he made jokes about their belief that gender is a “social construct.” They tried to get him fired from Netflix for that.
Now he has made a harmless joke about Jewish people, and how there are a lot of Jewish people in Hollywood.
Once again, it was a joke. It wasn’t a serious statement like the crazy conspiracy theories that Kanye West and Kyrie Irving spewed, implying that Jews are controlling the world and that black people are the real “12 Tribes of Israel.”
It was none of those things. It was a joke. Chappelle pointed out that there are a lot of Jewish people in Hollywood, and then made a joke about it.
But according to Deadline, “The national director of Jewish civil rights organization the Anti-Defamation League has tweeted out concerns over comedian Dave Chappelle’s opening monologue last night on Saturday Night Live.”
The director, Jonathan Greenblatt, said “We shouldn’t expect @DaveChappelle to serve as society’s moral compass, but disturbing to see @nbcsnl not just normalize but popularize #antisemitism.”
Greenblatt needs to quit clutching his pearls. Neither Chappelle nor SNL were “popularizing antisemitism.” Chappelle made a joke. He makes jokes about everybody. Get over it.
Luckily for American society, woke ideology seems to be peaking, and these attempts to cancel people for their violations of the woke code are less effective than they used to be.
Dave Chappelle will probably survive this latest cancellation attempt, but that doesn’t make it any less ridiculous.
