You Can’t Cancel Him: Dave Chappelle Defends the Second Amendment

Published

on

On Sunday, Dave Chappelle strongly defended the Second Amendment in front of  a Washington crowd filled with stars.

The renowned comedian accepted the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at The Kennedy Center. The Washington Times reported that he delivered impromptu remarks defending the right to free speech and comedians he knows who are supposedly “very racist.”

“[I] don’t get mad at ‘em, don’t hate on ‘em,” he said, according to a USA Today report. “Man, it’s not that serious. The First Amendment is first for a reason. Second Amendment is just in case the First one doesn’t work out.”

Chappelle argued that only America “could produce this many comedians”. However, he believes that comedians are needed more than ever due to the tense political climate America is going through.

“We got to let some air out of the ball, man,” he said, according to a report from The Hill. “The country’s getting a little tight. It doesn’t feel like it’s ever felt in my lifetime. So tonight I am honored that my colleagues are here in comedy and in music.”

“I love this job,” he continued. “It saved my life.”

Before his speech, Chappelle told The Hill that he believes “political correctness has its place” and he apologized if his comedy has “hurt anybody” in the past.

“We all want to live in a polite society, we just kind of have to work on the levels of coming to an agreement of what that actually looks like,” he stated. “I, personally, am not afraid of other people’s freedom of expression.”

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
