Americans Reminded About Afghanistan After Taliban Heard Defending Dave Chappelle

Attention has once again shifted to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan after a Taliban leader was caught on hot mic defending controversial comedian Dave Chappelle during a televised execution.

The controversy arose during the beheading of Samira al-Tajiki, a 17-year-old girl suspected of reading a book. Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who was attending the event, was heard from the stands saying that he “found Dave Chappelle’s new show kinda funny” and that he “didn’t see what the big deal was.”

Chappelle has been accused of transphobia since his special, The Closer, aired earlier this month on Netflix.

Baradar’s comments immediately brought renewed attention to the situation in Afghanistan, with increasing calls for the US to re-invade and overthrow the Taliban government. It also spurred a walkout at Taliban headquarters in Kabul led by transgender Taliban employees.

“Mr. Baradar and the rest of the Taliban leadership needs to understand the pain that his comments have caused the trans community,” one anti-Taliban protestor, holding a ‘Behead Chappelle’ sign, told The Mideast Beast. “When I wanna kick back and simply enjoy watching an infidel being beheaded, the last thing I need is to be subjected to this triggering rhetoric.”

While media outlets quickly moved on when Afghanistan was last in the news following the Taliban retaking the country, reporters promised that they would not be quick to forget about the terror group’s latest attack on humanity.

“It’s one thing to force women into slavery and behead political opponents, but it is quite another to support someone who has committed acts of rhetorical violence against the trans community,” said one New York Times editor. “The Taliban will rue the day they spoke in support of a popular comedian.”

Net Zero Plan: Australia’s grid to be powered by the imagination

Net Zero Plan: Australia’s grid to be powered by the imagination

Australia’s net zero plan will be achieved using the renewable powers of imagination, ‘emerging technologies’ and magic.

After spending 10 whole days writing a document that relies on the phrase “emerging technologies”, with no actual details as to what these technologies might be, the government provided clarification today, saying Australians just needed to close their eyes and open their minds to a world of fantasy and net zero emissions.

When approached for comment Angus Taylor, the Minister for Industry, Energy and Emissions Reduction explained, “Since we are including science-fiction in the projections, we thought we wouldn’t rule out a complete fantasy. We are consulting with experts in the field like J.K Rowling and David Copperfield to see if they know any spells or tricks to make carbon disappear”.


The Coalition’s plan also relies heavily on carbon capture technology. Given the net zero summary uses the slogan “The Australian Way” this presumably means we’ll be capturing the carbon and holding it in detention for 600 days until it kills itself, or that we’ll be telling it to “fuck-off back to where it came from”.
