In defiance of the Woke Gestapo, on Thursday night, 18,000 people at the Hollywood Bowl gave comedian Dave Chappelle a standing ovation.
This might just be the beginning of the end of this fascist blacklisting era we now call the cancel culture. …
“If this is what being canceled is like, I love it,” the 48-year-old said in response to a standing ovation. The line, and many more like it, was greeted by rapturous applause from the crowd, which included a masked Brad Pitt, Tiffany Haddish, Donnell Rawlings and others. At another point, he was more blunt: “Fuck Twitter. Fuck NBC News, ABC News, all these stupid ass networks. I’m not talking to them. I’m talking to you. This is real life.” …
“They cancelled @jk_rowling, they started calling her a TERF. I didn't even know what that was, but I know that trans people make up words to win arguments… I'm team TERF.”

It has always been my belief that 1) this era of Woke McCarthyism will not last because 2) it is a violation of human nature, and 3) most people, including Democrats, hate it.
The problem with the Woke Nazis has never been that the American people, or even the left, agree with them. Instead, the problem is that with the help of the fake media and social media (as Chappelle obviously understands), the Woke Gestapo can terrorize everyone into silence and fealty by pretending they represent a new wave of mainstream thought.
Well, they don’t.
Of course, this standing ovation was for Chappelle, but it was also something bigger, much bigger. Standing for Chappelle was a revolutionary act of rebellion, was the entertainment industry itself standing against the Woke Gestapo and rejecting the 21st-century version of McCarthyism. They stood for their own right to free speech and artistic expression. …
Currently, Chappelle is under withering fire as a transphobe and homophobe. He’s being accused of bigotry and “violence” and “perpetuating violence.” And Hollywood still stood up for him.
And now these 18,000 people know they are not alone.
The Woke Gestapo’s a mob of fucking monsters, but they do not represent the Democrat party. Hell, they do not even represent Democrats as far-left as those in Hollywood. We are all human beings, and it is in our human nature to want to express ourselves freely. This is especially true among artists, but for going on five years now, this fundamental human right has been denied to them.
So, yes, what happened last night at, of all places, the Hollywood Bowl might at long last signify the beginning of the end of the Woke Gestapo’s Reign of Terror.
Five years is about the length of many of these fads, and California is a trendsetter.
But there is so much power and money at stake that perhaps it won’t simply fade away. Perhaps it will be blown away by events — like a great inflation, or a real war, or another Chinese bioweapon. We shall see.
