I don’t know about you but I am fed up with the hypocrisy, fascism and blatant racism of the so-called transgender community. Sex is more of a biological certainty than race, but the transgender movement demands that you ignore the penis on a man or the vagina on a woman and acquiesce to whatever gender the person claims to be. Yet, if a Caucasian man or woman from Norway self-identifies as “black” African he or she is condemned (rightly so) for cultural appropriation or fraud.
Cristina Laila’s piece today shows you the insanity of the largely white transgender mob in full rage trying to silence comedian Dave Chappelle, who happens to be a black American. I watched the latest Chappelle special and it is not correct to characterize his performance as “telling transgeder jokes.” He was not joking about transgenders. He was calling out their hypocrisy and racism.
He specifically called out Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner for being named “sports woman” of the year shortly after he/she declared himself/herself a woman. He said that was insulting to women. I agree. Here is a point he did not make. Let’s say that chalky white Virginia Governor Ralph Northam declared himself a black American and was subsequently awarded “Black Governor of the Year”. Do you think most sane people would applaud and exclaim, “Ain’t that special?” Hell, no. It is ridiculous.
Dave Chappelle told a poignant story about an aspiring male comedian in San Francisco who identified as a woman. The trans comedian confronted Dave before one of Chappelle’s shows and Dave invited him/her to be his opening act. The trans comedian was terrible, according to Chappelle. Yet, rather than reacting like most comedians who bomb, the trans comedian sat through Dave’s show and then went backstage and bantered with Chappelle and his guys. Dave treated him like a person.
Sometime after the show, the intolerant bullies in the trans community started attacking Chappelle on Twitter. Chappelle did not care. But the trans comedian did and rose to Dave’s defense. And the result? After enduring a torrent of venom and hate, the trans comedian killed himself. Chappelle was crushed by this and he acted. He set up a trust fund for the dead trans comedian’s daughter. Dave ain’t a transphobe. He is a comedian doing his duty to make fun of the absurd.
