Well, now I have seen it all.
First Avenue has canceled a Dave Chappelle show and issued an apology to fans of the venue for being ignorant to the horror that is Chappelle’s comedy.
I wish I was kidding, but this is now the world we live in.
Chappelle was scheduled to appear at First Avenue on Wednesday night.
Late in the afternoon, only hours before the show was set to go off, the venue canceled the show and put out this message…
We hear you. Tonight’s show has been cancelled at First Avenue and is moving to the Varsity Theater. See our full statement for more. pic.twitter.com/tkf7rz0cc7

This is all because Chappelle said that while he respects people to view themselves as they see fit, to what extent do they expect him to fall in line with that?
He, of course, was speaking about transgenders.
Tim Young hit the nail on the head on this one…
Every time Dave Chappelle has a show canceled by leftist lunatics, Republicans gain votes.

So much for free speech in this country.
Here are a few more than just crushed the venue…
“We believe in diverse voices and the freedom of artistic expression, but in honoring that, we overlooked how fragile, humorless, and unhinged so many of you had become. We’re scared now. Please leave us alone.”

I had always thought that comedy was fair game unless it was way over the top, like Griffin holding up a bloody head of Trump.
I am pretty forgiving, but even I thought that was a bit over the top.
Chappelle has hardly been that extreme, simply voicing what many people are thinking.
To the point of that tweet, every time something like this happens, more and more people realize how out of control this entire situation is getting.
Nobody wants to live in this extreme of an environment, except, well, extremists.
I hate it, but if they keep it up, they are guaranteeing big changes in DC in 2022 and 2024.
