To those of us in the real world, outside the entertainment industry, Kanye West’s comment on Donald Trump seemed harmless enough, tweeting “You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”
Not in liberal Hollywood, you don’t. We don’t care if you sell hundreds of millions of CDs and have 20 million Twitter followers, if you say you like Trump in Hollywood, you must be destroyed.
The reaction to Kanye’s free thinking love of Trump was swift, like a battle scene from Star Wars, and as ruthless as multiple CNN anchors going after the Donald.
Leading liberal talking head Stephen Colbert said West had “lost his mind” in daring to say he liked Trump. Others followed suit across the talk show circuit and the entertainment industry. How could a black man support Trump, when all of us keepers of the liberal flame know he is a racist?
West then tried to clarify himself about his ideas on freedom of thought and only dug himself a deeper hole with the internet shamers.
“When you hear about slavery for 400 years — 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” he told another talk show host. “Like, you was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all? It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.”
That seemed rational enough: that black people in the today’s world, if they still live in their minds as victims of slavery they are “mentally imprisoned.”
But the Hollywood Sirens reared their shrill, shreaking heads again, screeching that West was saying slavery was a choice, not the abomination wrought by the white man they were protecting.
Kanye tried to try to explain himself again in a tweet.
“To make myself clear. Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will. My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved.”
But the mindless anti-Trump media beast and their storm troopers guarding black people from free thought was already unleashed and moving in for the kill. To them, the mere thought of a popular black man supporting Trump – free will or not – was blasphemy to their ruthless souls, despite West’s massive popularity and 20 million Twitter followers. Kanye must come down.
“For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don’t tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary,” he tweeted. “I love Hillary too. I love when people have their own ideas. You don’t have to be allowed anymore. Just be. Love who want to love. That’s free thought. I’m not even political. I’m not a democrat or a republican.”
But the Trump word was mentioned, the Beast was out and needed a victim, and Kanye was it.
Kanye’s message became a “slavery was a choice” noose around his neck. Another story quickly appeared that “Kanye West Says He Was Addicted to Opioids After Having Liposuction,” then another, that the rapper, by now described as a “self-centered provocateur,” was accused of stealing a design blueprint and calling it his own for some fashion apparel. A Detroit radio station said it “would ban Kanye West’s music over controversial comments the rapper made earlier this week that slavery ‘was a choice.’” A “source” would tell People Magazine that the Kardasians are “freaking out” over Kanye’s erratic behavior and comments.
Another damning accusation emerged, that West had expressed his “unexpected” support for conservative activist and Black Lives Matter critic Candace Owens on Twitter. “I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” he had tweeted. Owens, who is black, has been criticized for her support of President Trump and for her conservative political thoughts.
That is what this firestorm wrapped in a furor is all about, covered up by the media’s shaming hysteria, that West’s support of Trump is really a threat to the socialists’ control of the black movement. They are anti-Trump in any form, but they are also anti-free thought, just as Stalin was in Russia, because through Barack Obama, darling of Hollywood and the media, they have claimed the rights to the black American’s soul.
It all started back in Chicago, when Bill Ayers was helping a young Barack Obama formulate both his world political view and view of race – Barack was a mixed race man from Hawaii without any experience growing up as a black American on the mainland – and helped him get going on his political ideology and career.
Ayers, as we know, was a combination Marxist/communist/socialist, a child of white privilege surrounded in intellectual Hyde Park/University of Chicago by one of the worst black ghettos in America, in a city where more than 30,000 mostly black young men have been murdered by mostly other young black men since Martin Luther King was assassinated.
Since he was a socialist, Ayers’ solution to the massacre on the black South and West Sides of the city was to blame the white society he was raised in, and dedicated his life to bringing down the system of “white supremacy,” not to liberate black people both economically and from within, like Dr. King.
This came to be Barack’s view, too. Though he would wrap himself in Dr. King oratory and language, he was a socialist at heart, who through his skill with the teleprompter and endorsements from Oprah, became the new anointed savior of the black race.
Despite sounding in oratory like Dr. King, who was about elevating and freeing black people both economically and from within, Barack became as president about getting blacks on government programs and socializing the rest of the country as best he could.
Liberal Hollywood is still on the Obama cool aid that mandates anything white and republican is a slave owner in disguise and what is best for black people is Barack’s socialism, so either your with us, Kanye, or you’re against us, and if you’re against us you must be destroyed in Chicago baseball bat style, just as the Donald must be destroyed for beating Hillary, who was to carry on their socialist dream.
Kanye told a radio interviewer that he had had “reached out to Obama for years and couldn’t get anything done, but Trump gave me a meeting.” Obama famously called West a “jackass” during a taping of an interview, and reportedly doubled down on that epithet later, so they weren’t friends before Kanye started talking free will.
Both Obama and West are from Chicago, and Kanye tweeted recently that “Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed,” which was true, or course, because black teenagers were slaughtering each other with stolen guns by the hundreds each year through the Obama years.
So feel sorry for Kanye. He’s up against the Chicago socialists, who if nothing else, know how to treat their enemies.
