Dave Chappelle won the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor which goes to show you that:
One: The Mark Twain Prize is still a legitimate award and not a way for the Woke to reward themselves like what happened to the Hugo Awards.
Two: The woke will now go after the Mark Twain Prize, infiltrate its parent organization, and turn it into a Woke joke.
When Chappelle was asked about political correctness, which he brazenly defied during his latest special, this was his response:
Dave Chappelle: "Political correctness has its place… I, personally, am not afraid of other people's freedom of expression. I don't use it as a weapon. It just makes me feel better. And I'm sorry if I hurt anybody. Etc., etc. Yada, yada, yada. Everything I'm supposed to say." pic.twitter.com/xOTyST29ZC

“Yada, yada, yada, fart noise” is the correct response to political correctness.
That alone is fantastic, but what else he did raises his winning of this award to the level of epic.
In what he said was an unscripted acceptance speech on Sunday night, comedian Dave Chappelle continued his recent campaign against cancel culture—while openly defying a smoking ban and defending the right to bear arms too.
Chappelle was fêted on Sunday night in Washington, D.C., as this year’s recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, a lifetime achievement award bestowed annually by the Kennedy Center. Known for his irreverent and boundary-pushing sketch comedy show and standup routines, Chappelle has never shied away from an opportunity to eviscerate political correctness for laughs. Sunday’s event was no different, according to media reports.
“It’s the best part of the First Amendment to me that I’m able to express myself this way and make a viable living doing it,” Chappelle told NPR prior to going on stage Sunday night.
On stage, he reportedly lit up a cigarette—”What are they gonna do? Kick me out before I get the prize?” he said, according to USA Today—and took aim at the same woke scolds who were targets during his recent Netflix standup special.
Saying that he knows comedians who are “very racist” in their jokes, Chappelle asked everyone listening to please chill.
“Don’t get mad at ’em, don’t hate on ’em,” Chappelle said Sunday. “Man, it’s not that serious. The First Amendment is first for a reason. Second Amendment is just in case the first one doesn’t work out.“
Chappelle’s acceptance speech will air on January 7 at 9 p.m. EST on PBS.
Chappelle is totally spot on with that assessment. It’s even better to hear him say it in Washington DC in front of a bunch of gussied up Liberal patrons of the Kennedy Center.
