Luckily I've spent the last 3 years building up an immunity to iocane powder.

Sometimes a joke is just a joke and I think all of us have earned a good laugh without looking for hidden agendas.








*The Streisand effect is a phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.[1] It is an example of psychological reactance, wherein once people are aware that some information is being kept from them, their motivation to access and spread it is increased.[2]

You clearly didn't watch it. You should, just so you can see how ridiculous your post was in response to my linking it. I don't care about some Streisand effect - if you want to see why SJWs are triggered, that's the part.

If he was Trump and Conservative bashing it would have been funny and okay. Lol

I personally thought it was kinda boring, controversial, but boring. I can see how his jokes can trigger the left.

Well, I did watch it. More likely we just don't have the same sense of humor. I've been a Chappelle fan way before this.

My husband leans conservative and he said the same thing. I'm liberal and I found it hilarious. The skit 3Wolves is talking about was funny precisely for the reason 3Wolves thinks it's triggering. It looks like he's going one way and then...Bam! That's a comedic tactic that's funny as hell.

How does it make them hypocrites? They are recommended because most of the show is Dave agreeing with their position on leftists/SJW's.

To answer the OP’s question - because it triggerz the libz! And that’s all that matters in the current climate. “Is this thing bothering people I don’t like? Then I love this thing! Even if I used to hate it or have no personal experience with it!”

I don’t care if anyone watches or doesn’t watch Chappelle. I find the “Chappelle is being silenced!” crusade ridiculous though, since he clearly is not being silenced - his special is the first thing you see when you open Netflix.

Some people wrote articles or tweets critiquing the special, and these days anything less than full throated support is viewed as censorship.

I'm guilty of watching post Trump election videos of libs screaming at the sky over and over so ya, Chappelle is funny and fun to watch.

Late-term Abortion Conundrum and Science
Yes that post however conflates the consent to have sex with the consent to have a child together. ie) The guy had sex so if there is a baby that is on him.

I'm pointing out that after step 1: sex, that there is a step 2: keep the baby decision

Step 2 is currently by law only up to one of the two parties.

I guess I have too many friends in "low places" that have had gf's go off birth control or lie to them about paternity which they found out later wasn't their kid etc.

Lol, Boris Becker (tennis great) has to pay a Russian gal support because she gave him a BJ in a restaurant coat room and then inseminated herself. (This is actually something they warn NBA players about during rookie orientation like making sure to flush the condom so the semen can't be retrieved from it.)

Just throwing out some considerations, the US courts take a historically rooted "man is the breadwinner" type view that the father needs to be financially responsible and that the child will otherwise be a burden on the state. That's reality, Chapelle who's art is comedy is just poking that narrative a little and it should be at least a little thought provoking to people.

Boris says he had sex with her, nothing about a BJ set up.

I guess that's what you get for having "relations" with another woman while your wife is in labor.
