Dave Chappelle has grown a horde of enemies on the left.
His jokes about transgender people have severely damaged his reputation within elite left-wing circles.
And Chappelle infuriated a “woke” crowd when he brought one guest on stage.
Comedy legend Dave Chappelle seems to have found the uncrossable line in stand-up comedy: transgenderism.
Chappelle was adored by the left until he told jokes about the transgender comedy.
Chappelle has joked about various groups for years, but jokes about the “LGBTQ community” were a bridge too far for activist leftists.
That’s why there have been calls to get Chappelle’s Netflix specials yanked from the streaming platform.
But during his recent standup comedy tour stop in San Francisco, Chappelle brought one guest on stage who might be more hated than him.
Chappelle brought Elon Musk onstage, and he was met with cheers as well as a smattering of boos.
Musk, too, was once a darling of the left, but that all changed when he purchased Twitter for $44 billion and took the company private.
Since then, he has been the target of endless hit pieces.
The Biden administration has even threatened to investigate Twitter.
In response to the crowd reaction, Musk wrote, “Technically, it was 90% cheers & 10% boos (except during quiet periods), but, still, that’s a lot of boos, which is a first for me in real life (frequent on Twitter)…It’s almost as if I’ve offended SF’s unhinged leftists … but nahhh.”
Musk has been fearless in poking back at leftists when they go after him.
During the incident, Chappelle joked, “Cheers and boos I see…All these people who are booing, and I’m just pointing out the obvious, you have terrible seats…It’s all coming from way up there…“Listen, whatever. This motherf*cker is not even trying to die on Earth. His whole business model is f*ck Earth, I’m leaving anyway.”
Some speculated that Musk simply bought Twitter to unload Tesla stock without triggering alarm about the electric vehicle company.
However, Musk seems committed to fighting against the unhinged radicals on the left.
Musk recently tweeted, “The woke mind virus is either defeated or nothing else matters.”
Musk’s tweet is not hyperbole.
Professor and evolutionary psychologist Dr. Gad Saad, a frequent guest on Joe Rogan’s podcast, wrote a book called “The Parasitic Mind.”
In the book, he argues that the “wokeness” actually is a mind virus that’s parasitizing society, including the hard sciences, which were thought to be impenetrable by radical leftists.
Social sciences and the humanities were considered the province of kooky ideas, but now physics, medicine, engineering and other STEM fields have been overrun by leftist extremists.
The irrational hatred toward Chappelle and Musk show just how severe the mind virus problem has become.
A comedian and a tech billionaire have become two of the most important champions in support of free speech.
