Dave Chappelle has a new comedy special and it's already impressing people on the left, mostly because Chappelle doesn't censor himself and is willing to make jokes at the expense of trans people.
This is taboo for the left. No one is allowed to make jokes about trans people and a number of other topics. Chappelle ignores their rules and it drives them completely crazy.
He's not even a conservative, he just understands the importance of freedom of expression in comedy. As a result, major media outlets are trying to go after him.
This from Variety, via NBC News:
Dave Chappelle continues to mock trans people in a new Netflix special
Maybe it's time for Dave Chappelle to try some new material.
The comedian's latest special, “The Dreamer,” premiered on Netflix on December 31, and largely focuses on his early years in entertainment and how he demonstrated his success. But he infused the set's first 12 minutes with a reconsideration of his favorite target in recent years: transgender people.
Chappelle opens the special by telling a story about visiting Jim Carrey during the filming of 1999's “Man on the Moon,” where the actor famously went on a rampage while portraying comedian Andy Kaufman. Dave remembers being “so disappointed” that he spent the day talking to Carrey pretending to be Kaufman, ending by saying, “This is how trans people make me feel.”
He then addressed the controversy surrounding his anti-trans material, saying: “If you guys come to this show tonight thinking I'm going to make fun of these people again, you've come to the wrong show. I'm not f—— with these people anymore. It wasn't Worth it. I'm not saying – about them. Maybe three or four times tonight, but that's it.

People on the left need to have a sense of humor and get over themselves.
