I don't think he made himself out to be a martyr. If he was doing press tours on the threat to comedy in a serious tone, that would fit. Instead he did what a comedian does and worked it into his act. Social commentary has always been part of comedy and usually, if a comedian addresses their own controversies directly on stage, this is seen as an appropriate response.

Lmao dude you're dreaming. Even if he didn't, obsessive anti-PC dorks like yourself are doing a great job of it for him.

Double lmao at thinking that Chappelle offered any unique or valuable social commentary in his special.

I don't think I painted him as a martyr either. I do love how you can't get over me liking the special despite your disapproval.

Whatever you'd like to tell yourself.

How does you painting him as a martyr run counter to you liking the special? They go hand in hand as far as I can tell.

When did I paint him as a martyr? He's a triumphant champion, not a martyr.

Jacking off to him totes pwning the PC bogeyman that you already had a hate boner for has the air of championing him as a martyr for the harsh and traumatic criticism he got from those meanie critics.

Maybe you don't know what a martyr is

When someone attacks you and you attack them back and pwn them, you're not a martyr

You're only a martyr when you fall on your sword for your cause

My whole point about Chappelle from the beginning is that he has ****-you money which allows him to cross lines with relative impunity, where other comics wouldn't able to. This gives him more freedom.

Beyond that, your understanding of what I like about the special is simplistic to say the least... I don't like it just cause he "pwned" his PC critics. I like the way he played with the common narrative and kept straddling both sides as to keep you guessing, and above all I liked single funny lines with a good delivery.
