JESTER’S PRIVILEGE: Dave Chappelle’s SNL Monologue Calls Out Jewish Cancel Culture

Saturday Night Live has once again become the center of political discussion and controversy. In their latest broadcast, guest host Dave Chappelle delivered a 15-minute monologue centering primarily around how Kanye West (now known as Ye) and Kyrie Irving’ have been mistreated by the Jewish community.

While Ye’s recent comments about Jewish people have been considered radioactive discussion topics by mainstream political pundits and celebrities, Chappelle was willing to stand in support of both Ye and Irving. This should come as no surprise given Chappelle’s own experiences in Hollywood and the broader media industry.

From the very beginning, it was clear that Chappelle had a lot to say. Immediately after being met with uproarious applause from the likely liberal-leaning millennial audience, Chappelle read a fake letter of conciliation to Jewish people:

“I denounce antisemitism in all its forms (laughter) And I stand with my friends in the Jewish community. And that, Kanye, is how you buy yourself some time (laughter)”

Chappelle went on to speak very plainly about the modern American culture, and its fear over acknowledging Jewish people working together in positions of power. He stated, “[Ye] had broken the show business rules … you know the rules of perception. If they’re Black it’s a gang, if they’re Italian it’s a mob, but if they’re Jewish it’s a coincidence and you should never speak about it”

Chappelle was careful to mix in a small blend of superficial admonishment of Ye and Irving in his monologue, no doubt (as he later implies in his set) out of fear of retribution for the more positive comments he made. Behind the mild lip service, Chappelle displayed strong support for Ye, heavily implying that Ye’s views are not without merit. Chapelle said of Ye:

“I don’t think Kanye is crazy at all I think he’s possibly unwell. But I’ve been to Hollywood. And I don’t want y’all to get mad at me, I’m just telling you, I’ve been to Hollywood this is just what I saw. It’s a lot of Jews. Like a lot.

I can see if you had some kind of issue … you might go out to Hollywood and you might start connecting some kind of lines, and maybe adopt the delusion that the Jews run show business. It’s not a crazy thing to think. But it’s a crazy thing to say out loud at a time like this.”

Chappelle then moved on to other topics of contemporary concern, like the US midterms and the ongoing war in Ukraine, however in his closing remarks he returned to his broader thoughts about the culture of comedy and free expression in America. He stated, “It shouldn’t be this scary to talk, about anything. It’s making my job incredibly difficult and to be honest with you I’m getting sick of talking to a crowd like this. I love you [the audience] to death and I thank you for the support and I hope they don’t take anything away from me. Whoever they are.”

Going purely off the crowd’s reaction, the audience never found a single joke from Chappelle to be unfunny or distasteful. In fact, quite the opposite, the more controversial the joke, the more favorably the audience seemed to respond. On YouTube, where after just 13 hours the upload of Chappelle’s monologue had amassed over 1.4 million views, the top comments were all in support of Chappelle:

This positive reaction is in sharp contrast with what the media and Hollywood have said about Ye and Irving. Rather than provide either of the two men the benefit of the doubt, the media and business worlds have issued a total demonization campaign and boycott against them.

There is a clear divergence in America: people like Chappelle or Ye, and their respective fan bases on one side, and the elite echelons of Hollywood and the media on the other. The former stand in support of free speech, for the sake of their art forms, and the latter is totally against these kinds of topics being discussed. Why are Hollywood and the major television networks so afraid of these thoughts and discussions?

 It is not difficult to see the connection between Ye making his comments to immediately being banned from companies like JP Morgan and chase. This is a company that would not even cut ties with Jefferey Epstein after they knew of his involvement in child sex trafficking.

If the public were aware that the media or Hollywood or other massive amounts of power were concentrated in a few hands, it would of course cause problems for the current people running these industries, namely Jews.

With transparency comes accountability, and when things are going badly, people typically like to fire or replace whoever is in charge. In the case of modern media, it’s clear that there are lots of problems. There is massive censorship of information and suppression of alternate narratives (like what was seen during the 2020 election and the COVID pandemic). Yet these problems can never be allowed to be addressed at their source since there has been a nearly impenetrable wall of political correctness built around them. Any dissident voice is labeled racist, a word not only made synonymous with blind hatred and evil but a blank check to dismiss and ridicule anyone who doesn’t agree with the arbitrary dictates of whoever is in charge.

As Chappelle outlined in his monologue, people are not allowed to notice the pattern of Jewish influence in any sector. To do so is considered taboo, and to ever speak against this state of affairs will cost you your entire career. The recent examples of Ye and Irving have once again proven this to be the case.

For speaking out against Jewish people in the recording and fashion industry, Kanye lost over 1 billion dollars overnight. Kyrie Irving may never be able to play professional basketball again for reposting a link to a movie. How is it possible that one difference of opinion can initiate so much swift backlash? That is of course, unless their statements and broader concerns are true, so much so that their dissent cannot be tolerated without the system falling apart at the seams.

Chappelle’s monologue appears to signal an increase in restlessness amongst the public regarding these issues. People are sick of cancel culture and sick of political correctness and have been for many years. As the cracking down on popular and even beloved figures gets more intense and explicit, like in the case of Ye or Kyrie Irving, people are increasingly becoming vocal as to the true source of these malevolent forces for censorship.

This restlessness stretches far past political lines or any local affiliation. Notice the reaction of the crowd both in the SNL studio and the YouTube comment section. People of all races and political persuasion lament the days when comedians, a proxy for freedom of speech, were able to simply speak the truth in a humorous way. The push to silence Chappelle and others like him is completely inorganic. It is not trickling from the bottom up, an authentic expression of the public consciousness, but being tyrannically decreed from the top down. Celebrities and the entire media infrastructure conveniently pig pile at exactly the same time, with statements seemingly prepared for them.

TikTok videos and any online space that publishes this kind of content for the public to freely respond is met with high praise and agreement with the subject matter. For many people, Chappelle and Ye put into words all the secret suspicions and observations the average person is terrified of making in public. It is only through comedians and other free thinkers that people feel more empowered to engage with these topics. It makes sense why in response the media is so quick to try and dismiss or reframe the cultural shift happening before our eyes. They are afraid the stories will take on a life of their own, one far bigger and less easily controlled by the mainstream media monopolies.

Mainstream articles about Chappelle’s most recent appearance on SNL mention his statements of Ye and Kyrie Irving in a deceptively passing manner:

For many millions of people glancing at headlines, who will never check out the source material, they can emerge with a totally different idea about the tenor of Chappelle’s monologue. Chappelle never truly mocked Kanye, and he barely mentioned Trump. The final jab from this publication comes by trying to make the audience discredit him as being still embroiled in a controversy about his comments towards transgender people. It’s a red herring designed to ironically ‘steer clear’ of the substantive content that Chappelle was trying to get across to the audience.

NPR released a similarly deceptive article:

It’s hard to defend the idea his monologue ‘disappointed’ anyone but elitist snob journalists, given every joke received massive laughter and applause breaks for the full 15-minute set.

The same goes for the New York Times:

This is how modern media operates. They frame the story completely contrary to the actual events, because they know the majority of people who find this story will at best never research past the headlines, and at the worse end up agreeing with Chappelle. Weasel words like ‘mock’ and ‘ridicule’, were designed to socially engineer the reader and bias them towards any other narratives of the day except Jewish power in Hollywood.

Chappelle could hardly be said to have mocked or ridiculed either man, but the message these mainstream publications are pushing is clear: don’t take any of this seriously, mock and ridicule them, and don’t investigate any of their true claims or opinions. Chappelle’s treatment after his statements on SNL may soon become yet another canary in the coal mine for the death of free speech. Hopefully, he will survive as he has in the past, but if Ye and Irving are any indications, Chappelle is facing an even more difficult road ahead.
