The anger leveled against Dave Chappelle by the 24/7 outrage machine in America has been significant largely because his new Netflix special primarily took aim at THEM. You see, Mr. Chappelle, like millions of others in this country, has had enough of the constant faux outrage where every little thing is made to be a great cause for which everyone must think and act the same and those who don’t are then attacked and vilified.
From one cultural sacred cow to the next, Chappelle goes boldly where no other comics in this thin-skinned age dare to go and the results are as welcome as they are shockingly funny. Hopefully, more of America will take note of the message he is sending – to get over it, whine less, and laugh more.

Dave Chappelle’s Netflix Special Is A Giant Middle Finger To Social Justice
Dave Chappelle’s Netflix comedy special wouldn’t be nearly such a hit if the social justice movement hasn’t wrecked and suffocated every singular part of public life. The movement and its followers have screwed up academia, politics, the news media, and all of the entertainment industry, especially comedy.
That’s why it took comic-sized balls for Chappelle to roast nearly every sensitive topical event of the last year, including Me Too and the increasingly militant transgender political lobby. As described in my forthcoming book “Privileged Victims: How America’s Culture Fascists Hijacked the Country and Elevated Its Worst People,” mainstream comedy doesn’t really exist anymore. Social justice has replaced all of it with intersectionality and the privilege-versus-victim dogma.
All working comedians in America know it can cost them their careers if they don’t play along, even if they don’t quite understand when or why this happened.
…The movement has overwhelmed each and every part of our culture. Politics is no longer about practical policy. Higher education is no longer about prepping young adults for the workforce. The entertainment industry is no longer concerned with entertaining.
And comedy is no longer about making people laugh. It’s about pushing a cause, reinforcing a dogma, and instilling a worldview. It’s about social justice.
