In his recent Netflix special “Sticks and Stones“, comedian Dave Chappelle has unleashed hell on cancel culture and fauxtrage mobs, and also turned the tables on liberal arguments when it comes to issues like abortion and President Trump.

Naturally this makes Chappelle Public Enemy Number One to leftists and their outrage army whose sole purpose in life is to find things to be offended about in order to wage social media wars against the offending subject. The idea is to force the object of the mob to shut up or otherwise confirm.

Chappelle has proven over and over again that he’s just not gonna do that.

Because Democrats and so-called progressives have so heavily invested themselves in “identity politics”, under normal circumstances any criticisms of Chappelle would be viewed and called out as “racist” because the comedian is black.

But those rules don’t apply in this case, because Chappelle is doing what fewer and fewer comedians are doing in modern times when it comes to the demands from the left for milquetoast “comedy” and “safe spaces” for minority groups: he’s, in a nutshell, giving them the bird.


With that in mind, the geniuses at the Babylon Bee wrote one of the better takes on liberals and their reactions to Chappelle’s “Sticks and Stones” special:

After some confusion was expressed by casual observers of apparent hypocrisy in their denunciation of Dave Chappelle’s most recent comedy special, liberals from around the country clarified that they only want black voices to be heard when those voices are saying liberal-approved things.

The offended white progressives asked black comedian Dave Chappelle to “keep it down” and “maybe not talk so much” after his comments made them feel uncomfortable, sources confirmed Thursday.

Chappelle, whose political affiliation is unknown, has demonstrated that he’ll call both sides to the carpet politically. But because he doesn’t spare the snowflakes on the left from his politically incorrect wrath, he gets treated like a traitor to The Cause™, as a comedian whose opinions and shows you should ignore because he refuses to march in lockstep with leftist orthodoxy.


Nobody puts Dave Chappelle in a corner, and that includes perpetually fauxfended liberals. Kudos to the Babylon Bee for getting right to the heart of the matter.
