Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 30, 2019

After some confusion was expressed by casual observers of apparent hypocrisy in their denunciation of Dave Chappelle's most recent comedy special, liberals from around the country clarified that they only want black voices to be heard when those voices are saying liberal-approved things. The offended white progressives asked black comedian Dave Chappelle to "keep it down" and "maybe not talk so much" after his comments made them feel uncomfortable, sources confirmed Thursday.

"Yeah, we're glad you're a minority and we're happy that your black voice is being heard," said Zender Mollison, 32, Portland, he/him, in an open letter to Chappelle. "But you're not saying the right things." Mollison then offered to send Chappelle a list of the things that are OK for black people to say, such as that "white people are evil, that everyone should be canceled for literally anything they tweeted a decade ago, and that Donald Trump is Hitler."

"When black people agree with me, I very much want their voices to be heard," said Helga Bannerman, 28, Portland, she/they/her/xen. "When they don't agree with me, they're pretty much just not black anymore. They're basically an evil white person like me at that point. And the last thing we need on this planet is more white people like Dave Chappelle."

That's pretty much what racist Rep Ayanna Pressley said: "Democrats don't need "any more black faces that don't want to be a black voice"

Excellent reporting from the Bee, as usual.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) speaks at Netroots Nation conference on Saturday: "I don't want to bring a chair to an old table. This is the time to shake the table. This is the time to redefine that table. Because if you're going to come to this table, all of you who have aspirations of running for office. If you're not prepared to come to that table and represent that voice, don't come, because we don't need any more brown faces that don't want to be a brown voice. We don't need black faces that don't want to be a black voice. We don't need Muslims that don't want to be a Muslim voice. We don't need ------ that don't want to be a ----- voice. If you're worried about being marginalized and stereotyped, please don't even show up because we need you to represent that voice."

I watched Chapelle's special just two nights ago. I enjoyed it and, personally, I have no problem with his brutal honesty. Some of that is needed. And it was funny.

It started out as satire and was quickly turned into a thread about Ayanna Pressley.

Apparently she's the worst.

His stand up was great, and I believe a lot of us agree with everything he's said.

But that won't stop Nulli, Andrea, Sherp, Goat, RoC... from finding statements made by extremists and trying to paint the whole party in their image.

Meanwhile ignoring much worse shht from their own party. (They will be by shortly to tell us that while they spend their entire day defending the Republican Party and Trump, they aren't Republican and don't like Trump.)

The B is the only Christian news parody site I know of, and it's actually funny. It's also the only parody site that gets fact-checked by snopes.com. I think that's hilarious. They should fact check The Onion too.

when satire becomes indistinguishable from reality you know you are living in a clown world created by utopian leftists.

Years on this site and a President that can't be parodied because he's beyond believable parody says you're either wrong or you're one more example of right-wing irony.

I don't propose its mainstream Liberals today, but its going to be .. that is my assertion.

If you said we are going to remove Nobel prize winners from a class room because they are white males, in the 90's Democrats would have protested.

If you said we are going to allow unmitigated illegal immigration to run rampant, in 2010, Democrats would have protested.

If you said we are going to allow people to steal < $980 a day, get off scott free, Democrats in the 90's would have protested.

If you said using a power-washer to clean feces off the street was racist, Liberals in the 90's would have laughed.

There is a trend line ....

All we are doing is showing where Liberals are going.... its not difficult ... but bury your head, it all works out in the end .. right?

"The Babylon Bee is a news satire website that publishes articles on Christian living, the church, politics, current events, and well-known public figures. With intentional irony, the site describes itself as "the world's best satire site, totally inerrant in all its truth claims."

And, as this thread demonstrates, it's also indistinguishable from genuine right-wing beliefs.

FAKE NEWS ALERT!!!

The "trend" is toward Lying apparently Comrade.

You eagerly slurped up those Lies didn't you Comrade.

You should be embarrassed or at least a bit ashamed to fall for Fake News.

But, you are not are you?

"The Turning Point USA meme was particularly factually egregious in that it fostered the mistaken impression that the issue of sidewalk-cleaning applied to the entirety of Seattle, when in fact the discussion was about the area around a single courthouse. And the meme also wrongly asserted that "Seattle leaves ---- on its sidewalks," even though contemporaneous reporting made it clear that wasn't true, with the Seattle Times noting that "the county's administrative officer, Caroline Whalen, and the facilities manager assured committee members that a stepped-up schedule of power washing and garbage cleanup [around the courthouse] would begin immediately."

The coup de grce was that the photograph used to illustrate The Blazes article and Turning Point USA's meme did not picture a scene in Seattle, or Washington state, or anywhere else in the U.S., but rather ... Moscow:"

In the middle of the story, the Times quoted Councilmember Larry Gossett as saying that "he didn't like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists." That single line was plucked from its context and used as fodder for articles bearing headlines such as "Seattle Councilman: Cleaning ---- Off Sidewalks Is Racist" (The Daily Caller) and "Seattle Councilman Criticizes Plan to Hose Excrement Off Sidewalks Because It's Racially Insensitive"

Thank you for providing us with such an excellent example of your party's confabulations.

But here, just so you don't feel left out of the real world....

Seattle is overwhelmed by garbage and filth, but the city's leaders won't admit it.

Over the past few years, Seattle has become a dumping ground for millions of pounds of garbage, needles, feces, and biohazardous waste, largely emanating from the hundreds of homeless encampments that have sprouted across the city.

The next time you post the full, unabridged truth will be your first.

Your problem with the truth is it never coincides with what you want. So you alter it and present your deception.
