Woke Authors Quit JK Rowling’s Agency After It Refuses To Cave To Trans Mob

“These clients have decided to leave because we did not meet their demands to be re-educated to their point of view”

At least four authors have severed ties with the literary agency representing them and JK Rowling, after it refused to distance itself from remarks made by the Harry Potter author on transgender issues.

The authors, all identifying under the LGBTQIA umbrella, issued a joint statement resigning from The Blair Partnership that said “This decision is not made lightly, and we are saddened and disappointed it has come to this.”

“After J. K. Rowling’s — who is also signed to the agency — public comments on transgender issues, we reached out to the agency with an invitation to reaffirm their stance to transgender rights and equality.” the statement further explains.

“We felt that they were unable to commit to any action that we thought was appropriate and meaningful.” the authors said.

In other words, the agency wouldn’t publicly condemn Rowling’s opinions on biological sex.

“Freedom of speech can only be upheld if the structural inequalities that hinder equal opportunities for underrepresented groups are challenged and changed.” the authors further wrote.

In a statement of response, The Blair Partnership wrote “We support the rights of all of our clients to express their thoughts and beliefs, and we believe in freedom of speech. Publishing and the creative arts are dependent on these things. It is our duty, as an agency to support all of our clients in this fundamental freedom and we do not comment on their individual views.”

“To reiterate, we believe in freedom of speech for all; these clients have decided to leave because we did not meet their demands to be re-educated to their point of view,” the agency shot back.

It’s somewhat unsurprising that the agency backed Rowling, given that the Harry Potter books are a tad more popular than the Trans Teen Survival Guide and other virtually unknown titles published by the four woke authors.

The development comes a week after staff at Publishing house Hachette threatened to quit unless the company cancels its association with JK Rowling and scraps plans to publish her new book because they argue the author is ‘transphobic’.

The Daily Mail reported that “Staff in the children’s department at Hachette announced they were no longer prepared to work on the book” over Rowling’s recent assertions that biological sex is real and that there are only two genders.

Hachette is backing Rowling, having issued a statement saying “We are proud to publish JK Rowling’s children’s fairy tale The Ickabog. Freedom of speech is the cornerstone of publishing.”

Dave Chappelle Tricked SNL Producers by Giving Them Fake Monologue During Dress Rehearsal

‘Edgy’ monologue about Ye’s “anti-Semitism” was kept secret for live show.

Comedian Dave Chappelle reportedly tricked SNL producers into allowing his controversial stand-up routine in relation to Kanye “Ye” West to be broadcast by providing them with a fake monologue during dress rehearsal.

Chappelle was blasted for “desensitizing” Americans to anti-semitism after he told a number of jokes relating to Jewish power interests in Hollywood and the media.

Although the comedian opened his monologue by saying, “I denounce anti-semitism in all its forms, and I stand with my friends in the Jewish community,” he proceeded to riff on the double standards of how scrutiny of Jews is treated differently to other ethnic groups.

“I learned that there are two words in the English language that you should never say together in sequence. And those words are ‘the’ and ‘Jews,” joked Chappelle, before noting that everything was a game of “perception.”

“If they’re black, it’s a gang. If they’re Italian, it’s a mob. If they’re Jewish, it’s a coincidence and you should neeeever speak about it,” said Chappelle.

He also noted how Kyrie Irving had been given an absurdly long list of things to apologize for by the NBA before asserting that the persecution of Jews couldn’t be blamed on “black Americans.”

“I’ve been to Hollywood…this is just what I saw, it’s a lot of Jews, like a lot,” Chappelle added. “But that doesn’t mean anything, there’s a lot of black people in Ferguson, Missouri, doesn’t mean they run the place.”

Suggesting that “it’s not a crazy thing to think” that Jews run showbusiness, Chappelle joked, “But it’s a crazy thing to say out loud in a climate like this.”

The Daily Beast immediately accused Chappelle of echoing Ye’s anti-Semitism, while the ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt asked, “Why are Jewish sensitivities denied or diminished at almost every turn? Why does our trauma trigger applause?”

“Dave Chappelle’s SNL skit was a meticulous & calculated move to desensitize the population from anti-semitism, getting society to laugh at Jewish traumas/struggles, and normalizing historic tropes by manipulating the average person’s pain and redirecting their reactions onto Jews,” asserted Rudy Rochman, a Jewish-Israeli rights activist.

It has now been revealed that Chappelle had to slip the monologue by SNL producers, suggesting he feared they’d censor it, by giving them a fake alternative during the show’s dress rehearsal, and then performing the real ‘edgy’ monologue during the live show.

“Dave does a fake monologue during the dress rehearsal, because he doesn’t want [‘SNL’ creator] Lorne Michaels, or anyone else, to know what his real monologue is,” a source told the New York Post’s Page 6.

During the dress rehearsal, Chappelle also apparently told a joke about an SNL writer who had refused to work with him on the show due to being offended over the comedian’s previous “transphobic and homophobic jokes.”

As Chris Menahan notes, “Sarah Silverman “joking” about killing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is just good clean fun but Chappelle’s jokes are “hate” and “anti-Semitism.”
