Many who have been locked down, missing out on normal activities, and ultimately in need of a good time have turned to the ancient art of comedy, particularly Netflix comedy specials, for a good laugh and a bit of entertainment.

Progressives and social media busy-body activists, unable to buzzkill people’s good times in person, have been more fervently dragging people on social media than ever before, and there has been no lack of discussions focused on cancelling comedians, like Dave Chappelle, who haven’t completely adopted the dogmas of leftists in the Twittersphere.

Comedy was one an actual ‘safe space’ of sorts, where you could utter an unpopular or even outright offensive opinion and people would behave accordingly, as grownups, and understand that it was indeed just a joke. Woke-ism seems hellbent on depriving us of one of the final bastions of free speech… it appears not even jokes are safe.
