A theater in Minnesota has cancelled an upcoming appearance by comedian Dave Chappelle after a humourless woke mob repeatedly complained about the venue giving a platform to his ‘transphobic’ jokes. The First Avenue venue made the announcement Thursday, stating “We hear you,” and explaining “The Dave Chappelle show tonight at First Avenue has been canceled and is moving to the Varsity Theater.”
It continued, “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.”
The venue claimed “We believe in diverse voices and the freedom of artistic expression, but in honoring that, we lost sight of the impact this would have.”
Clearly they don’t believe in that because they immediately caved to a few angry wokesters who demanded censorship of jokes.
“We know there are some who will not agree with this decision; you are welcome to send feedback,” the statement also noted.
Lets hope they’re prepared for that. Chappelle’s last special was loved by the general public and hated by mainstream critics and alphabet people who immediately set about trying to get Netflix to pull it and ban the comedian. Joyless censors are an extremist minority, but one that enjoys establishment support.
As we also previously highlighted , the man who attacked Chappelle on stage in LA earlier this year and was later charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon has admitted that he was ‘triggered’ by Chappelle joking about trans people.
Chapelle himself said at a recent performance that “If this is what being canceled is like, I love it,” adding “F*** Twitter. This is real life.”——————————————————————————————————————— ALERT!

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
