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

Published

on

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.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

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.

SEE IT: Border Crisis at Breaking Point, Prompting TX Governor to Take Drastic Action

Things are turning troublesome in the Lone Star State.

Published

Despite constant pleas and pressure, the Biden administration continues to be unwilling to take action on the southern border, where a humanitarian crisis of nigh-biblical proportions is unfolding.

Would-be Americans from all corners of the globe are rushing the American border in Texas, overwhelming the facilities and authorities there to receive them. Compounding the issue is that fact that these migrants are largely eschewing the official naturalization process and checkpoints, and arriving whenever and wherever they can.

As border czar, Vice President Kamala Harris has been largely absent from the fray, opting to do as-of-yet-unknown work on climate change, claiming that this is a “root cause” of illegal immigration.

Now, as the border is being stormed Texas Governor Greg Abbott has had to make some desperate decisions. 

Texas Governor Greg Abbott deployed a contingent of Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Highway Patrol troopers to stop the free flow of mostly Haitian migrants from crossing the Rio Grande. The force of nearly 1,000 troopers and National Guard soldiers entered the makeshift migrant camp housing nearly 15,000 migrants under the Del Rio International Bridge.

On Saturday afternoon, the troopers used vehicles and barbed wire to block access to a weir dam stretching the Rio Grande. The migrants utilized the dam as the primary crossing point from Mexico into the makeshift camp.

Aerial photos demonstrated just what a mess the situation has become in the absence of any federal action.

The undeniable negligence of the Biden administration on this issue has been both confounding and infuriating for a majority of Americans, many of whom have publicly expressed their concerns over the capabilities of the White House over the course of the last several months.

Gabby Petito’s Fiancé on the Run in Florida Swamps, Say Authorities

Should Laundrie escape or take his own life, there could be little hope left of bringing Gabby home.

Published

on

The saga surrounding the disappearance of Gabby Petito continues to evolve this weekend, in strange and ever-more dramatic ways, and it could lead to yet another layer of tragedy.

Petito and her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, were on a cross-country road trip when her family lost contact with her.  Soon after, Laundrie returned home to Florida, sans Gabby, and her parent promptly filed a missing persons report.  Laundrie, unconscionably, refused to cooperate with investigators who were now looking for Petito.

Then, in a twist that could add exponential sorrow to the story, Laundrie has gone on the run after leaving his parents’ home on Tuesday – something that his family did not reveal to authorities until Friday.

Now, the hunt is on for the prime suspect in Petito’s disappearance.

Police spent Saturday searching a “vast” Florida preserve near the Laundrie family’s home after they said late Friday his whereabouts were now unknown, too. Late Saturday, police said they were suspending the search due to darkness and would begin again Sunday morning.

“Be advised that the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown,” an attorney for the family said Friday. “The FBI is currently at the Laundrie residence removing property to assist in locating Brian. As of now the FBI is now looking for both Gabby and Brian.”

Laundrie, 23, has not been seen since Tuesday, according to police and the family’s lawyer.

North Port Police said Saturday morning that they were searching for Laundrie in “the vast Carlton Reserve,” a 24,565-acre preserve north of his home in North Port.

If Laundrie were to evade authorities, or end his own life while on the run, there could be little hope left of finding out what exactly happened to Gabby Petito.
