Comedian Dave Chappelle went after Fox News host Luara Ingraham and Blexit founder Candace Owens in a Netflix special titled “8:46,” which represents how long a Minneapolis police officer had his knee on George Floyd’s neck.
“Normally I wouldn’t show you something so unrefined,” Chapelle wrote in the video description. “I hope you understand.”
“Unrefined” being a more polite way of saying vile, disgusting over-the-top sexist attack on the women — it’s enough to make one wonder what Netflix’s star collaborators, the Obamas, think?
Caution: Vulgar language
“I seen Candace Owens try to convince white America, ‘Don’t worry about it. He’s a criminal anyway,'” Chappelle said.
The video he references is about Floyd being martyred, despite an extensive criminal history — Owens does not try to justify the officers actions in any manner whatsoever.
“I don’t give a f— what this n— did. I don’t care what this n— did,” Chappelle continued. “I don’t care if he personally kicked Candace Owens in her stanky p—. I don’t know if it stanks, but I imagine it does. If I ever find out, I’ll let you know for sure. I’ll tell like Azealia Banks. I’ll tell.”
As for Ingraham, he boldly declared that she is a C-word.
Taking exception to the Fox News host going after Lebron James — “shut up and dribble” — the left-wing NBA primadonna who fancies himself an authority on current events, the comedian called her “a regular-ass white b*tch with a platform.”
Caucasians should take note that referring to a black woman in such a manner is verboten.
In what amounts to low hanging fruit, Chappelle did criticize CNN host Don Lemon.
After pointing out that Lemon criticized celebrities for “sitting in your mansions and doing nothing” during the Black Lives Matter riots, the comedian argued that people don’t care about what they may think.
“Answer me: Do you want to see a celebrity right now? Do we give a f*ck what Ja Rule thinks? Does it matter about celebrities? No, this is the streets talking for themselves, they don’t need me right now,” he said.
“This is the streets talking for themselves, they don’t need me right now,” Chappelle added. “I kept my mouth shut. And I’ll keep my mouth shut. Don’t think my silence is complicit. Why would anyone care what their favorite comedian thinks after they saw a police officer kneel on a man’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds? I can’t get that number out of my head.”
Lemon responded on air to say that he agrees somewhat with the point Chappelle is making.
“I think that the young people who are out there in the streets don’t really care what we have to say,” he said.
“But I do think that this is not a moment for modesty. I think that this is a moment that we should all be using our platform to do whatever we can, and at least to show young people and those out there that we support them, and it doesn’t mean taking all of the credit for it or speaking out for them,” he added.
Chappelle goes back to the 8:46 figure again and again, claiming that was what time he was born.
“I can’t get that number out of my head because it was my time of birth on my birth certificate,” he said. “I was born at 8:46 in the morning and they killed [Floyd] in 8 minutes and 46 seconds.”
The official autopsy showed that Floyd died of cardiopulmonary arrest — in other words, he had a heart attack. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner toxicology report also found that Floyd had fentanyl in his system when he died, as well as signs of recent methamphetamine use.
