Dave Chappelle, Who Defends Kanye, Also Got Called ‘Crazy’ For Bucking the System

Published

on

Comedian Dave Chappelle is strongly defending Kanye West as an artist, even though Chappelle does not support President Donald Trump. But perhaps Dave Chappelle can relate to Kanye, considering how Chappelle was smeared for standing up to Hollywood more than a decade ago.

“I’m not mad at Kanye. That’s my brother — I love him, I support him,” Chapelle said on CNN. The comedian repudiated his past remark that Americans should give President Trump a chance, but he did not back away from his support for Kanye West, who donned a MAGA hat in the White House.

“But, you know, I don’t have to agree with everything that he says … I just trust him as a person of intent. But yeah, he shouldn’t say all that shit.”

Kanye West faces a similar situation in the mainstream media to Dave Chappelle, who walked out of his $50 million Comedy Central contract to travel to Africa.

We reported during Kanye’s initial pro-Trump breakthrough in March: The daytime women’s empowerment hosts on corporate broadcast networks are straining to paint Kanye West as mentally ill because he has freed himself of liberal chains and embraced the excellence of President Donald Trump.

Kanye West’s transformational thought-breakout is inspiring Trump supporters around the country and the world, and emboldening new conservatives and free-thinking people to speak out.

But on Wednesday’s “The Talk,” on CBS, the hosts viciously smeared Kanye West, with one of the pabulum-spewers choking out crocodile tears in front of her brain-dead audience to convince Kanye to get help.

Sheryl Underwood said that Kanye West “looks like a man in crisis” and “a train wreck” and compared him to Peter Finch’s character in Network as the other hostesses pretended to be concerned about his mental health. The host Julie Chen asked if Kanye being “off his meds” is an excuse for the things he’s said, including that slavery was a choice and that we can now break out of our mental prisons and embrace higher consciousness.

Where did this mental illness narrative start? In the Fake News Washington Post, of course, in Molly Robert’s hit piece on Kanye calling him an “alt-right darling”: “It’s easy to cast West as just another lost man seduced by the far right’s promise to provide a sense of purpose. All that pseudo-philosophy does suggest a preoccupation with the sort of existential problems figures such as psychologist Jordan Peterson, who has become a surprise lifestyle guru, claim they can solve. It’s also possible to connect West’s eccentric behavior on Twitter — this isn’t the first time his forays into politics have discomfited some fans — to the mental-health struggles that led to his 2017 hospitalization.”

This is the same tactic they used on Dave Chappelle. Here’s Chappelle’s fellow comedian Katt Williams explaining the bargain they gave to Chappelle, whereby media executives told him that they would smear him as a crackhead during contract negotiations.

Experts Say: Smoking Weed Makes You More Susceptible to Coronavirus

Pot sales are going through the roof during the pandemic.

Published

With legal marijuana now available in states across the country, more Americans are toking up while they sit at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

However, experts are warning that blowing the ganja smoke can make individuals more prone to catching coronavirus.

“From China and Italy, we see people who developed COVID-19 and had underlying lung disease, [they] have more complications and die more often,” said Dr. Barry J. Make, a pulmonologist for National Jewish Health. “So this is the perfect time to stop smoking.”

Dr. Panagis Galiatsatos, a pulmonologist who serves as national spokesperson for the American Lung Association, notes that smoking marijuana has been known to kill lung cells. This could make it much more difficult for a smoker to recover from coronavirus than a non-smoker.

“A good portion of the world will be infected by [the coronavirus], but the level of severity of symptoms is going to depend on so many variables, from genetic components to just your overall preexisting conditions,” Galiatsatos said.

“From my standpoint, meshing [together] all of the variables that put in things that are not air into your lungs, I would view them all kind of in the same category,” he added.

Galiatsatos notes that cigarette smokers and vapers are also putting themselves at greater risk during the coronavirus pandemic by doing potential damage to their lungs.

“We know cigarettes and marijuana both cause cellular toxicity and changes in cellular metabolism and cellular behavior, so that would be a biologically plausible explanation to say if you got an infection from [COVID-19], you’re likely to have more dire symptoms,” he said – adding that smokers are more likely to catch pneumonia or have difficulty breathing.

Erik Altieri, the executive director of the pro-weed group National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), suggests that marijuana users could smoking the drug during the pandemic and instead enjoy smokeless alternatives that are not harmful to the lungs.

“Individuals should consider that consuming hot smoke from combusted plant material can be an irritant to the respiratory system, especially for those currently showing symptoms,” Altieri said to Rolling Stone.

Galiatsatos noted that having strong lungs is the best way to fight off coronavirus and individuals should take precautions to ensure quality lung health.

“If you get the infection and you have good, healthy lungs that aren’t being combated every day by toxins, whether it’s from inhaled marijuana or inhaled combustible cigarettes or inhaled electronic cigarettes, you’re allowing your lungs to be at the best capacity they can to try and fight off this infection,” he said.

“I would plead with everyone to do what you can in a time like this. I know I’m a lung doctor and this is coming off very biased, but this virus will destroy this organ if it finds any susceptibility, so please keep that in mind,” he added.
