It is looking extremely likely that the US National Institute Of Health was involved in the highly dangerous research that created the strain of Coronavirus that has circled the world. It is now almost certain it came from a lab in China despite anyone who suggested this being smeared by the establishment. Speaking of China, their military buildup continues at pace as their naval strength now exceeds the USN and RN combined, while they test hypersonic delivery vehicles.

Yet their economy teeters on the edge as their Evergrande real estate group temporarily cheats its way out of a default that threatens to bring down the world economy. Closer to home, public health overreach looks like having a devastating effect on freedoms that the West has taken for granted for decades.

So what are we all talking about? What is filling our news cycle? That a stand-up comedian made some jokes about the trans community.

It is almost as if the West is no longer a serious civilization.

Still, we are where we are, and at least the stand-up comedian in question, Dave Chappelle, is holding the line. He refuses to offer himself up as a sacrifice to the loud minority.

In his hour-long Netflix special, The Closer, he addressed some previous jokes he had made at the expense of the LGBTQA+ community and stated “gender is a fact”. Cue outrage. Chappelle has responded directly on Instagram and stated that he is willing to discuss anything with anyone in the transgender community but added that he will not yield.

“If they had invited me I would have accepted it, although I am confused about what we are speaking about, I said what I said, and boy I heard what you said. My god, how could I not?

“You said you want a safe working environment at Netflix. Well, it seems like I’m the only one that can’t go to the office anymore.”

This is strange, as we had been strongly assured by the mob that cancel culture does not exist. Yet he went on to say that he is being disinvited from events and festivals daily in the wake of the controversy, adding:

“Today, not a film company, not a movie studio, not a film festival, nobody will touch this film. Thank god for Ted Sarandos and Netflix – he is the only one that didn’t cancel me yet.”

Last week, the streaming giant’s decision to air the show saw 100 Netflix employees walk out in protest over Chappelle’s content, out of nearly 12,200 employees. Yet given the media coverage of the event you would have thought it was more like 6,000.

Predictably Elliot Page, who starred in The Umbrella Academy on Netflix and is transgender, got involved through the crusading power of a tweet:

“I stand with trans, nonbinary, and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) employees at Netflix fighting for more and better trans stories and a more inclusive workplace.”

Chappelle, however, has the last word:

“To the transgender community, I am more than willing to give you an audience. But you will not summon me. I am not bending to anybody’s demands.”
