Hear Ye, Hear Ye: Dave Chappelle on the JewsSpencer J. Quinn
As I watched Dave Chappelle on Saturday Night Live discussing the ongoing saga of rapper Kanye West and basketball star Kyrie Irving’s conflicts with the Jews, I was reminded of something I have always known but never seriously considered until now: the nature of mafias. Mafias maintain power in two ways: They deny that they themselves exist, and they enforce silence upon anyone inclined to say that they do. Total silence means total power. If a mafia commits a crime, and no one is willing to speak of it, is it really a crime after all?
In 1971, Joseph Colombo caused problems for the makers of The Godfather movie, which was based on a novel by Mario Puzo that had been published in 1969 and was just going into production. Colombo tried to halt it by threatening to prevent any filming in New York City, where the film is set. He was the high-profile leader of the Italian-American Civil Rights League at the time, and he professed to be deeply offended by The Godfather. How could Hollywood make a movie about the Italian mafia when the Italian mafia didn’t exist? Didn’t the film’s producers realize that they were insulting and defaming the Italian people?
Of course, it was an open secret that Colombo was a mobster himself, being the head of one of New York’s notorious Five Families. Thus, his attempt to impose an omertà — a traditional southern Italian honor code of silence — only carried so much weight. In retrospect, Colombo’s strained insistence that he was anything other than an honest Italian-American civil rights activist was downright risible. The Italian mob may have had near-exclusive control over drugs, gambling, prostitution, and Lord knows what else at the time. Still, they didn’t quite have the reach to get into the heads of all Americans. They couldn’t make everyone afraid to speak the truth about La Cosa nostra. In the end, when The Godfather’s producers agreed to excise all uses of the terms “mafia” and “Cosa nostra” from the film, Colombo dropped his objections and in fact supported their work.
But where Joe Colombo failed, the Jewish elite in America is today coming very close to succeeding. This was basically Chappelle’s point in his SNL monologue, which he had kept hidden from the show’s producers prior to going on the air. What was SNL going to do? It’s live television, after all.
Chappelle started with cutting irony: a false beginning which set up a joke, which in turn shattered the nearly universal omertà surrounding Jewish power. With little introduction, he read from a written statement the following boilerplate: “I denounce anti-Semitism in all its forms and stand with my friends in the Jewish community.” It was about as sincere as Michael Corleone’s denunciation of Satan and all his works in The Godfather’s famous baptism scene. Then came the punchline: “And that, Kanye, is how you buy yourself some time.”
Chappelle’s humor throughout the monologue focused not on his complaints about Jews or Jewish bad behavior. Instead, he described what it is like to have to cringe and scrape before Jewish power. Implicit are all the not-so-nice things Jews do with their power when you cross them:
I gotta tell ya, guys, I’ve probably been doing this 35 years now, and early in my career, I learned that there are two words in the English language which you should never say together in sequence, and those words are “the” and “Jews.” I never heard of someone do good after they said that. Kanye’s gotten into some scrapes before. Normally when he’s in trouble, I pull up — pull up immediately. But this time, I was like, you know what? Uh, lemme see what’s gonna happen first. Just wanna see where it’s all goin’.
To get everyone up to speed, about a month ago Kanye West (now known as “Ye”) had tweeted a few semi-questionable truth bombs about Jews, summed up nicely by Andrew Joyce here:
Ye also revealed how his Jewish personal trainer Harley Pasternak threatened to institutionalize him and medicate him into “zombieland,” an appalling instance of punitive psychiatry reminiscent of the Soviet Union.
Not long after this, Kyrie Irving retweeted a link to a 2018 low-budget film entitled Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America, which claims that blacks are the real Israelites and repeats various anti-Semitic tropes regarding Jews as globalist oppressors, Satan-worshippers, and the like. These tweets have gotten both men in deep trouble. Irving was suspended from play and more or less forced to apologize, which he didn’t quite do to the satisfaction of the National Basketball Association or the Anti-Defamation League (they returned his $500,000 donation). Ye, for his part, was dropped by various sponsors and lost a large chunk of his considerable wealth. Unlike past events of this nature, neither victim completely buckled under Jewish pressure in the timeframe prescribed for them, largely because they were both well-established and received support from their core followers.
This is worrisome for powerful Jews, because this time their critics are black. When omertà is broken by high-profile whites such as David Duke, their words can be believably — yet spuriously, of course — linked to the universal bugbear of “white supremacy.” Not so with black critics, and especially not so with blacks possessing off-the-charts charisma and credibility like Ye. Only Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and maybe a handful of others could even compete with Ye and his 31 million Twitter followers and his certified 25 million albums sold. So the Jewish power structure has to take Ye seriously — and by seriously, I mean by censoring him and stripping him of as much of wealth as possible.
This, by the way, serves to detribalize non-Jews by making the cost of tribalism exorbitantly high among their leading lights. Either you keep your influence and wealth, or you keep your love for your people. You can’t have both, goy-chik.
Oddly, Chappelle’s treatment of Ye was fairly lukewarm, calling him a “nigger” at one point, and opining that he was “possibly not well.” His baseline was sympathy, but he didn’t seem willing to expose himself any further in Ye’s defense. It’s as if the truth behind what Ye was saying was less important than the rule Ye knew better not to have broken:
He had broken the show business rules. It’s just a rule. You know, the rules of perception. If they’re black, then it’s a gang. If they’re Italian, it’s a mob. But if they’re Jewish, it’s a coincidence, and you should never speak about it.
It was regarding Irving that Chappelle became somewhat indignant, however. After describing Irving’s transgressions, Chappelle said:
The NBA told him he should apologize. And he was slow to apologize. And then the list of demands to get back their good graces got longer and longer. And this . . . this is where, you know, I draw the line. I know the Jewish people have been through terrible things all over the world. But . . . but . . . but . . . but you can’t blame that on black Americans. You just . . . you just can’t . . .
Kyrie Irving’s black ass was nowhere near the Holocaust. In fact, he’s not even certain it existed.
The inspired nature of this last joke aside, it was an astute point. Today’s Jewish leadership will not hesitate to link even minor criticisms of Jews qua Jews to the absolute worst of history’s atrocities against them — if the gentile perpetrator refuses to profusely apologize, that is. Even taking the mainstream Jewish history narrative as gospel, this remains vindictively neurotic. Basically, today’s Jewish leadership wants to use history as a means to stifle any criticism of them as a people, whether they deserve that criticism or not (while tacitly allowing similar criticism of whites as a people, whether they deserve it or not). Dave Chappelle objects to this, and deserves credit for doing so.
But why he objects to it is problematic. The historical troubles of the Jews, he says, cannot be pinned on black Americans. True, but the implication here is that they can be pinned on white Americans. Untrue. Mel Gibson’s white ass was nowhere near the Holocaust, either. But does Dave Chappelle care to speak out about that? Not on your life. Whitey can fend for himself. In fact, the only active player in this affair who has spent any time defending the interests of white people is Kanye West.
This gets to the heart of the matter. We are witnessing competing ethnocentrisms in action — something that human beings cannot help but engage in. These days, the Jewish elite have the power to enforce a false, pro-Jewish narrative which purports that Jews don’t have any unusual degree of power. Just like Joe Colombo’s denial of the mafia, this is a walking contradiction, a naked emperor standing in the street and showing off his new clothes. One either admits the truth at great cost, or submits to the lie at no cost. Blacks like Dave Chappelle have learned that submitting to the lie might not always be in the best interests of his own racial group, so he stood up against it with his humor — and good for him.
But, really, the only person in this narrative who stood up against the lie not only for his race, but also for something as amorphous as the truth, is Kanye West. Whether or not his being a billionaire had anything to do with that, I’ll let the reader decide.

 In the same year as his conflict with The Godfather, Colombo allied his Italian-American Civil Rights League with Meir Kahane’s Jewish Defense League [JDL] on the grounds that they were both being harassed by the federal government, and he even bailed some JDL members out of prison.
Chappelle was funny, but covered his ass hard. Musk is the same. Weak. Kanye is the only one risking it all, and I’m sure when he turns up dead it will be treated like nothing much.
Aren’t you covering your ass hard by using a pseudonym? At least Dave Chappelle showed his face and used his name. It’s always amusing to see random anons accusing people who don’t hide behind screen names of cowardice and weakness. It seems as if the anons act like something sacred has been violated when I bring this up, but they’ve obviously never witnessed this behavior from a non-anonymous perspective.
Actually, it’s my last name. I signed up at CC under my work email and mail checks to this fine site with my address on them. The staff has called me and emailed me directly, so it’s not exactly like I’m hiding. And I didn’t accuse him of cowardice, I accused him of covering his ass, which he did.
Whether or not it’s your last name, you’re still 100% anonymous to everyone reading this.
And you didn’t just accuse Chappelle of covering his ass. You also accused him and Elon Musk of weakness. Seems like they both put a lot more on the line than you’re willing to do.
I haven’t personally seen the ass-covering but weakness is more or less built in to the position of anyone trying to uncover this vat of maggots. I’d say all of these American Africans and the African American, although I am less sure about him, have displayed a desire to speak the truth to the extent that they are prepared to risk their, by most standards, huge fortunes. Their fame is some sort of defence against the consequences, which is unfortunately not the case for even the most well-known users of this site.
I sympathise with Mr Goad’s frustration at anonymous stone-throwers but I don’t think appending our business cards to comments is going to help get the job done.
Saying someone put it all on the line, which Kanye did, and that two others covered their asses, which they did, isn’t the same thing as calling the latter weak. But it’s good to know that you disagree with a commenter they should just shut the hell ip unless they are willing to give up their home address.
When one is as wealthy as Chappelle, let alone Musk, being a bit PinC really doesn’t take much courage compared to those who are workers – ie, actually have to work for their meager livings. I think it’s great that some people like you can be courageous and open and self-supporting, but I could not do a side CC column under my real name and still keep my job (which isn’t even in politics or media or academia, just boring, mainstream business, but which I do need for distasteful financial reasons). I actually am fairly outspoken, albeit in a Trump/normiecon way, at work; certainly, some consider me to be a “dangerous Far Rightist” (which anyone at CC, who also knew the content of everything political I’ve ever said at work, would find hilarious, given that the extent of my workplace “Far Rightism” consisted mainly in laughing at “pronoun choosing”, and defending illegal alien deportations and the police against BLM bs).
I don’t think (((Musk))) is any kind of rightwinger (I’d like to be proven wrong, even if all he secretly is is a good old fashioned classical liberal), but if he is, he could do 100x what he’s doing. It takes “guts” for the World’s Richest Man to reinstate a former President of the USA on Twitter? LOL! Indeed, I don’t see that he has put himself “on the line” at all. Kanye has, though whether he intended to or thought through the consequences of his words, I have no idea.
People need to read up on who the Edomites are.
Now the Jewish power elite have a dilemma on their hands. Unlike White people who tend toward being cautious, timid, and lacking in solidarity (and therefore more likely to back down), Black people are more feral, more likely to go for broke, and more likely to get solidarity from their own people. This could create a chain reaction among other Blacks in sympathy to Kanye, and the situation as a whole will spread more “anti-Semitism” which the Jewish people can blame themselves for. Of course, Jews will never blame their own high-strung screwiness and vindictive excess for this reaction. They’re not as smart as they are brazen.
A black coworker of mine who is a full-on BLM kang and MSNBC devotee went from despising Kanye for donning the red hat and Kyrie for refusing the “vaccine” to militant supporter once tha Jews came fo dey money.
I’ve noticed this on social media. A lot of black NBA fam pages come up on my feed for some reason and blacks are largely siding with Kyrie. I even saw a roots meme of Greenblatt whipping Kyrie.
Outstanding article. I specifically compare Kanye noticing Jewish gangsterism to the opening scene of Godfather II when De Niro assassinates the leader of the Black Hand…only Jewish gangsterism is global, while the Black Hand was limited to Manhattan.
This latest chapter of Jewish power is countering and suppressing populist-nationalism in white countries by ‘defending/preserving democracy’ with increasingly maudlin performances.
They never actually define what ‘democracy’ even is because they know it would require naming and defending Jewish power since democracy means self-determination, representation and a check/balance on power, which Judaism occupies across white countries while denying indigenous and majoritarian whites themselves.
Nobody could have predicted that the greatest challenge to International Jewry in its American nerve center since Charles Lindbergh would emerge from infinitesimal black conservatism (Kanye, Jason Whitlock, Candace Owens etc). These people have questionable backgrounds, but have become heroes nonetheless because there is no going back from this.
For all the flak Trump gets, one little known underhanded policy he enacted finally put perimeters on all things Judaism, which is the cover Jews have used for centuries to evade detection by oscillating between race and religion until this point. Now they can’t pretend it isn’t a nationality.
The same slippery tactic applies to Zionism. We have no actual treaty with Israel stipulating the ‘special relationship’ precisely because we don’t have it written in fine print. It’s like their entire playbook is from Nazi Germany.
Notice they have since used ‘racism’ and ‘antisemitism’ interchangeably ever since Kanye’s tirade.
Italians and Jews have high levels of mafia behavior because both have quantities of middle eastern blood, where the civilizations have higher levels of ethnocentrism. Arabs and Turks were a major presence in southern Italy for many centuries, and well, watch True Romance if you want to know what they did there, lol! They gave those Italians and Greeks some Semitic blood, let’s say!
Older civilizations tend to be more ethnocentric as an evolved disposition. They also develop higher verbal iq than visuospatial. In younger civilizations, the battle is man versus nature, and mankind is basically maximizing its energy extraction from nature. Europeans and north Asians are sort of at the finishing stages of this struggle, although Europeans have brought this to an unforeseen level with the industrial revolution, which shattered all Malthusian limits. These stages of evolution require high visuospacial iq.
In the Middle East, on the other hand, maximum human energy extraction from the environment was reached many centuries ago. Agriculture started much earlier in those places. Once the size of the pie has been maximized, the only thing left is to fight over the size of ones slice of the pie, hence competition shifts from man against nature to man against man in a struggle to win more of a fixed pie size for oneself. What happens if large groups of individuals are fighting over resources? Teams form. Those who form coalitions have an advantage against those who are atomized. Psychological predispositions to teamwork, aka ethnocentrism become the norm. Now put a group with high evolved ethnocentrism and group loyalty in a group who are individualistic and they dominate.
Also, verbal iq becomes more important, as wheeling and dealing inside the tent becomes more essential for winning a bigger slice of the pie for you and yours.
Of course this is from William Hamilton by way of Kevin macdonald, as everyone here knows.
“Italians and Jews have high levels of mafia behavior because both have quantities of middle eastern blood, where the civilizations have higher levels of ethnocentrism. Arabs and Turks were a major presence in southern Italy for many centuries, and well, watch True Romance if you want to know what they did there, lol! They gave those Italians and Greeks some Semitic blood, let’s say!”
How can somebody this ill-informed call himself Plato! And then he has the gall to cite “True Romance” as an authority. You and your damn Hollywood friends!
Saracens raided the Southern mainland, and took many slaves, but they never occupied a single parcel of land for any significant period. Rather, they held the island Sicily for a few centuries, before they were ethnically cleansed by the Normans.
As for a Turkish presence in Italy, please enlighten me great sage Plato! When did the Turks ever occupy Italy? Or are you perhaps thinking of pre-Turkic Anatolian gene flow into Italy? Do you realize that the extra-European component of Bronze Age Anatolian–the CHG of the Caucasus and NW Iran–was also a roughly 50% component of the vaunted Aryans?
I hate to say it, but this site needs a fact-checker.
You’re right, the Turks never actually occupied Italy, but the point is most Southern Europeans have considerable Semitic blood by genetic testing and my theory is that this contributes to their relatively ethnocentric behavior compared to north Europeans. My original contribution is to extend this to the mafia type behavior seen in some Mediterranean groups, but the wider theoretical picture owes to actual smart people, lol. I’m not claiming one state of being is superior to another, but the ethnocentric seem to be kicking our butts in general. With evolution it’s what leads to passage of genes, not what’s pretty of course. William Hamilton bemoaned it, saying, “is this the fate of humanity, to be reduced to competing ant piles?”
Please cite study showing that Italians have a lot of Semitic blood. There were three ancestral groups in Middle East at dawn of the Neolithic, the Anatolian farmers, the NW Iran farmers (virtually indistinct from Caucasian Hunter Gatherers (CHG)) and the Levantine farmers (i.e., Semites). There was as much genetic distance between these groups as exists today between Han Chinese and Europeans. It was Anatolians who settled Europe down to the Bronze Age, all of Europe, though in Northern Europe this genetic component was greatly reduced by the influx of Indo-European-related genes, whereas as it remained a more prominent component in the South.
During the Bronze Age the population of Anatolia was transformed by the intermingling of the aforementioned groups, such that it became roughly 45% Early Anatolian farmer, 40% Early Iranian farmer, 15% Levantine. And continued gene flow from Anatolia to Greece and Italy meant that CHG and Levantine components entered these populations by this route (CHG was also brought to Europe by the Aryans, who were roughly 50% CHG and 50% EHG). But this means that modern-day Southern Italians & Greeks carry at most 5% Levantine, and that’s probably a high estimate.
A better explanation than genetics for mafia culture in the Italian South is its distance and alienation from the central State, and perhaps also a more deeply-rooted tradition of Homeric honor. If you consider the borderlands between England and Scotland, you will see that this area also gave rise, historically, to “mafia-like” behavior and certainly clan-based allegiances and vendettas. Transplanted to America, this became the Hatfields and McCoys.
They also have a lot of black blood.
I’m pretty sure you misunderstood his reference to the movie True Romance. He wasn’t citing it as a scientific authority, but merely because it contained a famous scene in which the historical fact of ancient Levantine miscegenation in Sicily was mentioned in a humorous and cinematic way.
I don’t find it humorous in the least. And “eggplant” is a reference to Sub-Saharans, not Phoenicians or Carthaginians. Obviously some gene flow from the Levant into Italy and the wider Mediterranean did take place, but it tends to be wildly overstated on this site and in nationalist circles generally.
Again, most of the gene flow into Italy was from Anatolia across Greece and the Balkans, and whatever Levantine genetic legacy exists in Italy today arrived by, and was mediated through, that path. And this is a contribution of at most 5% to the modern Southern Italian genetic profile.
Yes, the Carthaginians did control much of western Sicily in the first millennium BC, but their style of colonization was not a mass migration on par with the Greek colonization. It was in the nature of trading posts and “merchant ghettoes.” Their genetic legacy is very slight.
And as for Levantine gene flow into Italy during the era of Roman empire, most of this was into urban areas that later collapsed and which were then repopulated by native stock from surrounding countryside.
Here’s some of that funny intense hatred humor:
Okay, the guy could have said more. But the fact that he said anything at all is a positive.
This guy knows the truth, even if it’s an old article. Note the disgustingly smug tone.
The UK music paper has already moved on — and let’s be honest, President Ye would be no different than what we’re stuck with now.
Kanye West enlists alt-right voice Milo Yiannopoulos for 2024 Presidential campaign
Tangentially relevant to the antics of the Black American gentlemen relayed above, today’s UK Spectator, a journal of culture and politics renowned for both its wit and authoritative gravitas, has a piece supporting Mr David Baddiel, top-drawer Cambridge graduate, public intellectual, gadfly and former co-presenter(*) of the BBC’s beloved Fantasy Football League television programme. Mr Baddiel has been promoting his book Jews Don’t Count on the plight of British Jewry under assault from both left and right of the political spectrum, in the course of which he has himself suffered opprobrium from the usual vulgar and venomous sources resentful of his (and by extension British jews’) polymathic talent and dazzling success. I feel sure we humble readers here will join Our Sages at Counter-Currents in deploring any aspersions cast at leading lights of the British cultural firmament who happen to be of the Jewish faith, such as Mr Baddiel, or for that matter Mr Stephen Fry.
(*) The other presenter being a droll working-class type.
Unbelievable. I didn’t know Fry was Jewish. Amazing how often …
Great piece on these great, recent events for us. Thanks Spencer.
I see only positive things for our cause from the ‘coming out’ of Kanye, Kyrie Irving, and Dave Chapelle. I have spent most of my life living in the cities of the east coast of the U.S., believe me, if you go into the inner cities which are still predominantly black, you will hear ten Kanye’s, ten Kyrie’s, ten Chapelle’s and more. They know about the Jews because when their neighborhoods gentrify, the Jews steal the blacks real estate and push them out of the neighborhoods. Then there’s abortion and the rest.
The Italian, Irish, Chinese mobs want people to prosper, because the more people prosper, the bigger cut for them. They don’t care about your beliefs. They just want a cut of your earnings. But the Jews want to control our minds, and eventually kill off our culture, Christianity, and eventually us, just like they did in Russia beginning in 1917.
I have wracked my brains over the past few years on how to get our message to the masses and these events have made me think that maybe, we can’t. If a white person was to say what the black community is saying, we would of course be immediately put in “white supremacist, Nazi” jail. But as Chapelle said in his monologue, “Kyrie wasn’t anywhere near the holocaust.”
Leverage. We need to use this as leverage as much as we can. E.g., you’re out with friends, or on social media, “you see that Dave Chapelle thing on SNL, you know what, he’s right. Well, let me give you some examples of Jewish supremacy in our country.” “This guy Kanye, you know, his music and stuff just isn’t my thing, but you know what, he’s right. If I was to meet him, I’d buy him a beer. I wish he would have gone into more details. Let me give you some examples of Jewish supremacy… Oh, you don’t believe them. What are you racist against black people or something? Well, let me prove to you what Jews are doing to our country. You ever hear of George Soros, Alejandro Myorkas, Mark Zuckerberg… etc…”
You get the picture.
It’s sort of on the nose at this point, especially with Kyrie, what with him having to grovel to Jewish NBA executives who lecture him on how the idea that Jews have power is an anti-Semitic trope. The ADL is per se an anti-Semitic trope. The funny thing is, I’ve talked to Israelis and they tend own up to Jewish power and are proud of it as opposed to diaspora Jews who are self-conscious of it.
I think the juxtaposition of mafia/Italians with Jews is most apropos. Many Jews will point out that they aren’t getting their ZOG checks. The greater Italian community though arguably benefited though from the actions of the mafia. The same way the Jewish community benefits from the actions of AIPAC, ADL, SPLC, et al.
Also, there are no equivalent organizations for whites like the ADL who argue say that the idea of anti-white privilege plays into hurtful tropes and stereotypes of preppy WASPy white bois with a Yale chin.
Chappelle’s monologue was Norm MacDonald tier deadpanning.
The threads max out after a certain number of replies, so I’m posting down here:
First you said:
“Chappelle was funny, but covered his ass hard. Musk is the same. Weak. ”
Then you said:
“Saying someone put it all on the line, which Kanye did, and that two others covered their asses, which they did, isn’t the same thing as calling the latter weak.”
No one told you to shut up, either.
Call it what you will, but I personally find it extremely disheartening to see White advocates rah-rahing for any black that will open their mouths about the jeas and the extent of their control of society. It just seems to promote the same old illusion of “black and White unite”, only this time in service of exposing and remedying what the jews have wrought. Not to mention that this sudden instance of blacks being essentially “allowed” (divested of financial assets, “status”, etc. as they may be. Obviously large for such a group that’s primarily fixated on conspicuous consumption/peacocking wealth, but small potatoes to anyone further along the evolutionary line.) is likely another demoralization tactic. Wouldn’t be surprised if this was co-opted into a temporary victory over the jews to make blacks the spearhead of the removal of their power. In any case, the racial divorce process should extend across all walks of life, as much as possible. Blacks have benefitted from our goodwill for far too long, and will never return the favor, whether or not Schlomo and his kind disappeared from the earth together or not. Focus on our people, not the temporary mouthing off of trained apes.
