Just saw Chappelle's #SNL monologue. With the caveat I'm terrible at predictions I expect:
1. People will be annoyed (either for the monologue itself or as an excuse for other things he's said)
2. People (including Jews) will defend him (either on principle or substance)
3. It's not that I think Chappelle is bulletproof (though he's close) he's very intelligent in what he says and how he says it. But bec of his status and stature, he also becomes a proxy for a lot of other fights.

In any event, I don't see his career being meaningfully impacted
4. As I understood Chappelle's monologue, the key point is that there are double standards regarding who can say what about whom.

If my Twitter feed is any indication, everyone agrees this is a problem though there's rampant disagreement over the details.

I love Dave Chappelle but this #SNL monologue is really sus.

"if it's a group of black people, it's a gang, if it's a group of Italians, it's a mob. If it's a group of jews it's a coincidence and you can't talk about it"

That's not a joke, its just anti-semitic.
anti-semites in the replies jumping at the opportunity to tell me about how:

"He's just joking, pussy! Now hear me out! The jews control everything!"
Oh! For those in the replies that the American education system has failed, the reason it’s sus and anti-Semitic is the following:

The comparison to black gangs and Italian mobs is something called “disanalogous”

So what is “The People’s Joker”? It’s been billed as “the world’s first impressionist superhero/queer art film” and was made with the help of hundreds of contributing artists all over the world during the pandemic. latimes.com/entertainment-…

“There was something in me that always thought I was special. Even when I was really bad. And I don’t know where it came from,” Stalter added. “Probably my mother loving me too much or something.” latimes.com/entertainment-…

Fan of #MollyShannon’s Mary Katherine Gallagher?

The actress is opening up about a dark part of her history that influenced the iconic character

This 👆 is their 2nd best dig since the un-aired Chuck Hagel confirmation parody where they skewered US politicians for over-the-top pandering to Israel:
& as the replies show a concerted effort to deny Israeli apartheid, here is a mountain of evidence proving it:

按照 #比特币 目前价格超过3.3万美元计算
总市值已突破6200亿美元
公开资料里中国政府是第二大持有者(各权贵家族手上只多不少)
每天挖到的比特币超50%在中国矿主手上

搞评:只要比特币存在于世,定价权在中国(政府+权贵+矿主)手上 ImageImageImage
#比特币 #Bitcoin 去年3月最低跌破5千,美国总统选举11月3日1.4万,大选争议中却暴涨,21年1月3日最高价达3.4万,2个月翻一倍还多,只要告知买入,即能合法赚大钱且匿名隐蔽,是最佳跨国行贿手段
1月6日前更是决定美国总统胜负关键,若没结果,还有1月20,结果若定,疯牛行情就没必要了 ImageImage
任何价格走势接近45度角倾斜时,背后一定事出有因,只在于你知不知道而已。
经历过2015及2020年,如果你还不明白“政治才是一切的主宰”,那么也没必要再琢磨了。 Image

.@POTUS @realDonaldTrump
#thread Dear Mr. President, I want to start this series of tweets by saying I am neither Republican or Democrat. I'm not excited about a Biden Presidency because the cynical nature in me says no matter what party is in power, it's business as usual.
I believe power truly comes from the people, and it is a population's responsibility to be educated in the process of government, understand the differences between a democracy and republic, how the legislative system works on all three levels, and have a basic... (cont.)
...understanding of civics from the most local of levels to the highest in the land. You have spent a large amount of time on this platform and I thought this might be the best way to get this message to you. I believe in America, its people and the process. (cont.)

A brief thread on why it's fine to #DragWhiteWomen:

1/ Last night on #SNL, #BillBurr dragged white women. He's not alone. It's constant, on Twitter and elsewhere. White men drag white women. POC drag white women. Even white women drag white women. Constantly.

And we deserve it.
2/ Why? Well, in 2008 and 2012, POC had the chance to make history by turning out for Barack Obama. And y'all did. Twice!

In 2016, white women had the chance to make history by turning out for Hillary Clinton. And 2/3rds of us voted for Trump, voted 3rd party, or didn't vote.
3/ Yes, white women are singularly responsible for Trump and all the horrors he's wrought.

It's true that white men overwhelmingly voted for Trump, but that's our fault too. We should've raised them better, or got them in line.
