The washed-up comedian and darling of the far-left cultural elite — who previously proclaimed her affections for the disgraced former Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo — believes white men owe society an apology.

While speaking with Samantha Bee on her weekly podcast “Full Release with Samantha Bee,” Handler proclaimed, “Men can be so disappointing.”

She went on to say: “I know it’s not all men, obviously, I have to keep saying that, which is so annoying. My brother says, ‘Chelsea, not all white guys are bad.’ Well, you are for even saying that. Don’t even say that.”

She later contradicted this statement by proclaiming, “No one is saying all white guys are bad. We’re saying there are enough bad ones out there, that as a collective, you guys owe us an apology.”

Handler explained that white men might not individually be responsible for any wrongdoing, but as a collective they have had an “unfair advantage” over women.

She said, “The pattern of behavior [of white men] in our culture, it’s not your fault, but you have to recognize that you’ve had an unfair advantage, and that women have had to pay the price for that, period.”

Handler proceeded to proclaim that when a group that is deemed to have privilege issues an opinion or voices a complaint, their perspective is “irrelevant.”

She said, “It’s like when a white person is arguing about racism, as if they have any idea what the impact or effect is … your opinion is irrelevant.”

This is hardly the comedian’s first foray into wokeness.

In the July 2020, while speaking with NPR, Handler proclaimed that she is “clearly the beneficiary of white privilege” and that she wants to “know how to be a better white person to people of color.”

Handler told NPR that after Donald Trump became President of the United States she sought therapy to “work through her politics, but she ended up dealing with race.”

Handler said, “After taking a look at myself and coming to the realization that my success has a lot to do with my skin color, I wanted to really do something that set an example about how to contribute.”

“Because at this point,” she continued, “It’s not enough to just say you’re not racist. We have to be working to dismantle the system because we are reaping the benefits in exchange for people losing benefits.”
