The Cancel Culture Mob Meets Resistance
How dare you suggest there are only two genders?
There are some notable examples of resistance to the First Amendment suppression mob this week.
One would be in Major League Baseball. After the MLB thugs pulled the All-Star Game from Georgia because that state advocates voter integrity by requiring voter ID, a threat to the Demos’ fraudulent bulk-mail balloting strategy, it turns out the Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros are now headlining the World Series. In other words, the biggest baseball matchup of the year is now being played in Georgia and Texas, another state that requires voter IDs.
Other athletes, notably the NFL’s Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the NBA’s Boston Celtics star Enes Kanter, are also hitting back at the cancel culture mob.
Then, after YouTube banned Bryson Gray’s anti-Biden hip-hop sensation, “Let’s Go Brandon,” the kinder-gentler version of “FJB,” it took the top billing on the iTunes chart. And the number two slot went to rapper Loza Alexander for his version of, you guessed it, “Let’s Go Brandon.”
That was followed by an epic “Let’s Go Brandon” correction by The Washington Post.
In Hollywood, high-profile director Mel Gibson has fended off the cancellation crowd.
But the most significant of the cancel culture kick-backers this week was comedian Dave Chappelle, who, despite some of his graphically gross “humor,” made the mistake of insisting there are two genders.
For the record, The Patriot Post has suffered significant shadow-banning by the corrupt social media giant Facebook, in part because its so-called “fact-checkers” concluded that our adherence to the science — that there are in fact two genders — constitutes “hate speech.”
Our friend, Rep. Jim Banks (R-IA), found out this week that Twitter will lock your account if you dare call a man a man. Banks said that a gender-dysphoric man — Biden’s Secretary of HHS Rachel Levine, who was declared the “first female four-star admiral” (a ceremonial distinction given to HHS secretaries) — was what he is: a man. Banks was promptly notified by the Twits that calling a man a man “violate[s] our rules against hateful conduct.”
By the way, Banks is still a Naval officer who deployed to Afghanistan twice, before Joe Biden’s surrender and retreat. “Admiral” Levine, on the other hand, has no military service record.
So, what did Dave Chappelle do to become a lightening rod for violating the woke supremacist narrative? He committed the unpardonable sin of insisting men are men and women are women. Chappelle, who lives in Ohio, not Hollywood, has not drifted so far left as to take complete leave of his senses.
In his very popular two-part Netflix stand-up series, “The Closer,” Dave made the grave mistake of asserting: “Gender is a fact. Every human being on Earth had to pass through the legs of a woman to be on this Earth. That is a fact.”
Firing back at his attackers, Chappelle declared: “They’ve canceled people more powerful than me. They canceled J.K. Rowling. She wrote all the Harry Potter books by herself. She sold so many books the Bible is worried about them. And they canceled her because she said … gender was a fact. And then the trans community got mad as sh*t. They started calling her a TERF. I didn’t even know what that was. But I know that trans people make up words to win arguments.”
Despite a lot of pressure from the Rainbow Mafia, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos says he will not take down Chappelle’s specials: “Some people find the art of stand-up to be mean-spirited but our members enjoy it, and it’s an important part of our content offering.” He even fired some of the Netflix activists who were leading the revolt.
Those employees demanded Netflix “boost promotion … for trans-affirming titles on the platform” and “suggest trans-affirming content alongside and after content flagged as anti-trans.” They insisted Netflix “hire trans and non-binary content executives” and “create a new fund to specifically develop trans and non-binary talent.” Sarandos is attempting to make nice with those employees, given the power the small but vocal LBGTXYZ lobby has in Hollywood. He will find that no amount of concession will ever satisfy the arbiters of gender language.
Whatever else you might say about Dave Chappelle, he does not comport with the party line. A few other leftists, like Bill Maher, are also breaking with the script. It will be interesting to see if he can endure this mob. Soon enough they will show up at his house and go after his wife and kids.
Chappelle’s five-minute 2019 stand-up routine on “Juicy Smoo-yay,” mocking hate-hoax perp Jussie Smollett in front of a mostly black audience, clearly some of whom were still buying into the hoax, is one of the funniest routines I have ever seen. If you are not inclined to subject yourself to Chappelle’s expletives, you can read an excerpt here.
Ultimately, Chappelle’s “offending remarks” are an affront to a much more powerful cancel mob than the Rainbow Mafia. He has offended the entire Biden/Harris regime gender-denial agenda, which is being infused into every federal agency.
The latest chapter in the regime’s gender absurdities is the announcement this week that Biden’s State Department will issue passports with an “X” gender designation for those who are too confused to decide which gender they are. No word yet on how many Americans Biden abandoned in Afghanistan will apply for one of those passports.
Oh, and a final note as Biden prepares for his European G7 confab on “climate change.” Even Vladimir Putin is comparing the woke culture agenda to the political consequences of how “Bolsheviks followed the dogmas of Marx and Engels” after the Russian Revolution.
