Dave Chappelle has been under constant assault from radicals.
Their cult-like behavior is escalating.
And Chappelle’s blue state problems just got worse after another insane attack on free speech.
The Church of Woke has deemed Comedian Dave Chappelle a heretic.
For that reason, left-wing cultists will harass him anywhere he goes.
That’s why a recent Chappelle stand up show was canceled in Minneapolis.
Hours before Chappelle was set to take the stage, the venue pulled the plug on the event due to protests from far-left activists.
Variety reported that “First Avenue, the iconic venue that provided the setting for Prince’s ‘Purple Rain,’ announced that the show would not be taking place at their theater and was instead moving to Varsity Theater. In an Instagram post, the venue addressed the social media backlash they had received after booking Chappelle, who has had his share of controversy this year after his Netflix special ‘The Closer’ was criticized for transphobic jokes.”
Despite the screams from the Left, The Closer was nominated for an Emmy.
First Avenue caved to pressure from a Communist group called MnUprising.
The venue said in a statement, “To staff, artists and our community, we hear you and we are sorry. We know we must hold ourselves to the highest standards, and we know we let you down. We are not just a black box with people in it, and we understand that First Ave is not just a room, but meaningful beyond our walls…The First Avenue team and you have worked hard to make our venues the safest spaces in the country, and we will continue with that mission. We believe in diverse voices and the freedom of artistic expression, but in honoring that, we lost sight of the impact this would have.”
No, they do not believe in “diverse voices and the freedom of artistic expression.”
A sign that political correctness has gone too far is when a life-long liberal like Chappelle is too toxic for the Left.
They have become scolds and authoritarians.
MnUprising gleefully responded, “Every action of fascism happening in so-called Minneapolis shares a root of colonial violence, be it from corporations, the pigs, or the city. To comrades who continue to fight, we love you. Continue to engage in radical action and rage against violence. The time to act is now!”
Brave comrades showed up in numbers to confront those who put their money behind transphobia. @VarsityTheater plans to host Chappelle for two more nights. To the employees of the Varsity, we hope you hold back your labor and strike! #fuckyourtransphobia (7/8) pic.twitter.com/0B4tUgZ4Ds

And unfortunately for citizens in the blue state of Minnesota they can’t even have a laugh because of it.
Anyone under the illusion that the Left are liberals who defend free speech needs to wake up.
