  • Islamist Organizations Only Elevate The ‘Right’ Muslims

    Among the fascinating phenomena of America’s most prominent Muslim activist organizations is how they decide which Muslims to lift up and which to ignore. Compare two recent comedy specials. One, Dave Chappelle’s newest Netflix special “Sticks & Stones,” which is generating intense reactions given its choice of material — including abortion, #MeToo, Transgenderism, “the alphabet people” (referring to the expanding acronym LGBTQIA+), and the implications of the “cancel culture,” which seeks to silence all who do not adhere to the “woke” doctrines of political correctness. Thinking about this hilariously offensive special brought to mind another recent comedy special that challenged...
  • Dave Chappelle ‘Sticks & Stones’: Why I’m not allowed to say f*ggot but allowed to say N-word?

    Stick and Stones Special
    So she sits me down. We have a nice conversation. She tells me, “Oh, the sketches are great.” I go, “Oh, fantastic. Well, then… well, then, why am I here?” She said, “Because, David, there’s no way… that you can ever say the word… “f*ggot” on our network. I didn’t know I did anything wrong. I didn’t try to defend myself. I said, “All right. F*** it, I’ll take it out. Have a good afternoon.” And as I was leaving, it occurred to me. “Hey. Hey, Renée, quick question. It’s just a question. Seriously, I wanna know. Like, wh-why is...

    FULL TITLE: 'My money, my choice': Comedian Dave Chappelle tells audience that if women have a right to 'kill' their babies, men can 'abandon 'em' After getting what was apparently a largely pro-abortion crowd — especially the women in the audience — to cheer his recitation of pro-abortion talking points, Chappelle went for the roundhouse. Because what's fair is fair. "Ladies, to be fair to us, I also believe that if you decide to have the baby, a man should not have to pay. That is fair," he said, which received significant laughter from the men in the crowd. "If...
  • Dave Chappelle's Netflix Special Is the PC Culture's Worst Nightmare

    Netflix has released comedian Dave Chappelle's latest stand-up special. Throughout his nearly hour-long set, Chappelle demonstrates that he may be the most fearless celebrity in America. At one point or another, every viewer will be offended. At most points, though, viewers will not only laugh but marvel at the comedian's ability to skewer what he calls the "cancel culture" while making a mockery of political correctness. With his latest special, Chappelle proves that he is the PC culture's worst nightmare.
  • Jon Stewart: Trump’s Winning War With Media by Using Their ‘Own Narcissism’ Against Them

    Mediaite ^ | October 31, 2018 | Caleb Ecarma
    Comedian and Daily Show legend Jon Stewart pointed out a chink in a journalists’ armor against President Donald Trump’s anti-media rhetoric: He has exploited the media’s “own narcissism,” forcing them to “change the conversation” to focus on what he wants to talk about. Stewart began his point by noting that corporate media outlets have focused so much on the Trump phenomenon because “you gotta’ make money to. You got bills to pay, man, you got electric bills, you got food.” CNN International host Christiane Amanpour, who was interviewing Stewart along with fellow star comedian Dave Chappelle, pushed back on that...
  • Maya Rudolph Finally Did the Rachel Dolezal Impression We’ve All Been Waiting For

    Rachel Dolezal's 15 minutes of fame have (thankfully) come and gone. But because many comedians — including Dave Chappelle — didn't quite know what to make of her story, most refrained from poking fun at her expense. Maya Rudolph isn't one of them. Since Rudolph can no longer use Saturday Night Live to scratch her impersonation itch, Seth Meyers provided both a forum and and a wig to get her into full #AskRachel character on Monday's Late Night. It doesn't disappoint.

    <p>Dave Chappelle is a man who is known for his controversial sense of humor and jokes, being well beyond “politically correct” by anyone’s standards. He’s not one to shy away from ANY topic… and you know, that’s sort of expected from comedians if you ask me. It’s either ALL OK or NONE of it is. You can’t have it both ways.</p>

    Comedian Dave Chappelle has been prepping for his November 12 hosting slot on Saturday Night Live with a series of surprise shows at The Cutting Room in New York. On Friday night, he shocked the crowd with a 60-minute set largely devoted to slamming Hillary Clinton. He was particularly agitated about what he believes was Clinton’s role in leaking a surreptitiously recorded conversation between Republican nominee Donald J. Trump and TV personality Billy Bush. “What I heard on that tape was gross,” Chappelle said. “But the way I got to hear it was even more gross. You know that came...

    Anyone who tunes into late-night comedy shows knows that black comedians utter the n-word with rapid-fire frequency. Perhaps Michael Richards mistakenly thought that what was sauce for the goose was sauce for the white gander. In any case, in a Today show appearance this morning, Jesse Jackson declared that he would be working to "prohibit" the use of the word. He didn't offer specifics, but one question naturally arises. Would Jackson's n-word ban begin where the word is most frequently in use - the black community itself?Interviewed by weekend host Lester Holt [one of my MSM favorites for his level-headedness,...

    U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee took time out from her busy schedule of showing up at every funeral, press conference and C-SPAN event February 23 to appear on stage with comic Dave Chappelle. Chappelle brought his Block Party Tour to the Verizon Theater that night, and Lee –- who recently has wormed her way into pictures with such notable celebrities as Michael Jackson -– knew a good publicity opportunity when she saw it. Just before intermission, Chappelle invited Lee on stage, where she reminded everyone they were currently in the midst of her very own 18th Congressional District and welcomed...

    Chappelle's shtick Tom Elliott Aside from a new $50 million contract, what does Dave Chappelle have that Jesse Jackson does not? The answer, Mr. Jackson will regret hearing, is a reason for black youth to value his opinion. Since "Chappelle's Show" debuted two years ago, the comedian has become a ubiquitous American pop presence. Known for skits that regularly break comedic boundaries, Chappelle, like his thematic predecessor Chris Rock, is celebrated for lampooning any subject, regardless of its position in the sphere of P.C. protection. Whites, blacks, Asians, George Bush, Bill Clinton, even Kunta Kinte -- nothing's considered sacred. So-called...

    Dave Chappelle has signed a massive deal with Comedy Central that will return the comedian's hit series to the network for two more seasons. Sources familiar with the deal indicate it could be worth about $50 million, vaulting Chappelle, 30, into the rarefied realm of television's top earners. The new contract is believed to mark not only a steep increase for Chappelle as star, writer, co-executive producer and co-creator of "Chappelle's Show," but more significantly, reward him with a hefty chunk of the series' robust DVD sales. Increasing the pressure on Comedy to close a megadeal with Chappelle was interest...
