Stand-up comedy icon Dave Chappelle is no one’s idea of a conservative. But as his fans know, he’s also that rare mainstream comedian who is willing to set fire to some of the left’s most sacred cows, regularly cracking jokes about gays, transgenders, and the #MeToo movement.
In his latest Netflix special, The Closer, Dave Chappelle seeks a ceasefire with the LGBTQ establishment, but not before he fires off a few jokes in their direction, including one about transgender vaginas. The trans lobby and media have waged war against Chappelle for years, accusing him of being transphobic and “punching down” — all of which Chappelle has addressed by telling even more searing jokes.
“Any of you who have ever watched me know that I have never had a problem with transgender people. If you listen to what I’m saying, clearly, my problem has always been with white people,” he said.
The comedian devotes a good chunk of The Closer to addressing the transgender controversy. But he also skewers other left-wing axioms during his routine that was recorded in Detroit in August. Here are seven instances when Chappelle seemed determined to trigger his left-wing critics.

The comedian joked that DaBaby got in more trouble for his comments about gay people than he did for his involvement in a shooting a death in 2018. “In our country, you can shoot and kill a n***a, but you better not hurt a gay person’s feelings.”

2. Calls out white gay privilege
The comedian recalled a time he got into a confrontation with a gay man who ended up calling the police on him. “Gay people are minorities until they need to be white again,” he said.
Says he prefers “gloryhole” gays over today’s woke gay activists
Chappelle said he doesn’t care much for today’s gay woke-tivists, saying he prefers the older generation of gays who marched at Stonewall and who were sexual libertines. The comedian delivered an extended ode to gloryholes, noting that it takes “courage” for the
