THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 195: ChappelleGATE w/ Ben Burgis and Comedian Chris Riggins

October 15, 2021
In his recent Netflix special, "The Closer," Dave Chappelle opened a firestorm of controversy due to his attacks on cancel culture and the identity politics of modern America. Does Chappelle's comedy special cross the boundaries of acceptable discourse? Should such boundaries even exist? Has the political culture been poisoned with an intolerance that stifles creative freedom, or are various groups trying to protect themselves from the harms of an intolerant nation?
