Comedian Dave Chappelle Takes Celebrities To Task For Black Lives Matter Virtue-Signaling

Published

Celebrities these days love to get on their social media platforms, which have obscenely high follower counts, something that is alarming all on its own, as it indicates just how many people are willing to hang on every word these people say, and use it to shame others for not doing enough for whatever pet cause is currently in the headlines.

A great example of this is CNN host Don Lemon, who recently went on a tirade about celebrities who haven’t spoken out about the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers. Lemon spoke on May 30 saying, “What about Hollywood? Strangely quiet. Why aren’t they helping these young people? These young people are out there standing on a platform on the edge of an abyss by themselves.”

Well, Lemon got more than he bargained for when comedian Dave Chappelle dropped a comedy special on Netflix called 8:46. The title is in reference to how long the police officer involved in the Floyd case kept his knee on the man’s neck.

Trump or Biden, who will win?

Named for the amount of time Floyd’s neck was knelt on by a Minneapolis police officer before he died, 8:46 lists the abuses of black people at the hands of police officers in a truly devastating monologue. The set was dedicated in spirit to the likes of Philando Castile, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and John Crawford III. Chappelle recalled how he had been pulled over and let off with a warning by the police officer in Beavercreek, Ohio, who would gun down Crawford the very next day inside a Walmart.

Chappelle shouted to the socially distanced audience before him that he didn’t need to say anything to the public “because David Chappelle understands what the f— he is seeing and these streets will speak for themselves, whether I am alive or dead.”

Chappelle seems to be a rather well rounded individual when it comes to his stance on freedom of speech, and while there is a lot to disagree with when it comes to his actual politics, he deserves respect for standing up and speaking his mind, even when it isn’t something his own side is going to appreciate very much.

Here’s to hoping that folks like Don Lemon take to heart what he said and call it quits on the virtue signaling.

Filmmaker Michael Moore Says Biden’s Lead In The Polls ‘Is Not An Accurate Count’

Michael Moore

It’s no secret that radical leftist filmmaker Michael Moore wants nothing more than to see President Donald Trump ousted from the White House by losing the election on November 3rd. However, despite the fact he hates Trump with every fiber of his being, he’s also not blind to the real possibility that current polls that have Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden coming out on top next week could be very, very wrong. via Daily Wire: Speaking on The Hill TV’s “Rising,” Moore lamented the ease with which President Trump was able to cut Biden’s lead in half in the state of Michigan after he previously led the president by 16 points in the state. Moore warned Democrats that they should not believe the polls putting Biden so far ahead. “Trump has tightened virtually every one of these swing states to the point where—what are they saying this morning? … ‘Biden’s five points ahead in Wisconsin… maybe three [to five] points ahead in Florida, two points ahead in Arizona.’ Listen, don’t believe these polls, first of all,” Moore said. “And second of all, the Trump vote is always being undercounted. Pollsters, when they actually call a real Trump voter, the Trump voter is very suspicious of the Deep State calling them and asking them who they’re voting for.” “So it is not an accurate count. I think the safe thing to do—this is not scientific, I’m just saying from my experience of being a Michigander—whatever they’re saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half, right now, in your head. Cut it in half, and now you’re within the four-point margin of error. That’s how close this is! That’s how desperately close this is!” he stressed. Moore has been constantly warning Democrats not to grow in their complacency by actually believing that…

CNN Host Don Lemon Says Trump Supporters Have To ‘Hit Rock Bottom’ To Get Help; Compares Them To Addicts

CNN host Don Lemon has made it clear over the last four years that he’s not at all a fan of President Donald Trump, nor does he have much love for his supporters. However, his latest rant about the president’s supporters is taking things to a whole new level of deplorable. During his program on Thursday, Lemon compared Trump’s supporters to drug addicts. Lemon’s colleague, Chris Cuomo, joined him on his program where the two attacked the president for continuing to hold political rallies during the coronavirus pandemic, going on to suggest that Trump supporters are beyond help. What kind of help do they need, Don? Please share with the class. via Fox News: “You know what the sad thing is? And I’ll be honest with you … I’ve had many people who I love in my life- and yeah I come from a red state, I’ve lived in several red states, there are a lot of friends who I’ve had to really get rid of because they are so nonsensical when it comes to this issue,” Lemon said. “They have every single talking point that they hear on state TV and that they hear from this president, they repeat it and they’re blinded by it.” “I had to get rid of them because they’re too far gone. I try and I try and I try, they say something really stupid and then I’ll show them the science and I’ll give them the information, and they still repeat those talking points,” Lemon told Cuomo. “I had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you’ve just got to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict, right? And they have to want to get help, they have to want…
