Thank You Kanye West; Not
We are told we should celebrate the independent thinker; the person who goes against the grain, who thinks outside the box and who walks uphill when the mob is fleeing downhill.
In an age where more than 90% of black voters vote Democrat every election cycle and are expected to tow the line and endorse whatever the party’s platform might be, Kanye West has said “enough is enough.” He has bucked the trend, the popular thought and the group-think mentality and looked at facts instead of hyperbole and the popular narrative.
At lease, he did for a month or so. Then, the powers in the Democratic Party were just too intimidating. West folded and reversed course and returned to the plantation, claiming he had “been used.” Sure Ye.
The president has made it clear that economic expansion, increased jobs and higher wages are all things that help all Americans. He has not drawn class or race distinctions but has operated under the old adage that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” His policies are designed to benefit all Americans; white, black, Asian and Hispanic.
People in the African-American community, like Candace Owens and Kanye West have awoken to this simple truth. At least, Owens has embraced it, instead of buying into the erroneous group-think mentality that states that the president is a bad guy, that he somehow doesn’t like minorities and that he is out for only the rich and powerful.
The truth is much different. Every policy that Donald Trump has adopted has been to help the middle class, whether it be in the form of fairer trade agreements, lower taxes, a lower corporate tax rate that frees up funds for hiring or protecting Americans from human smuggling, cartels, terrorists and drugs.
Every one of those policies is designed to benefit all Americans; not just a selected sub-group. The Democratic Party platform has been designed to always differentiate among Americans and play class politics or racial politics to their advantage. Divide and conquer has been their agenda and breaking America up into disparate and angry groups has worked for them every election cycle; almost.
Kanye West Seemed to see the Truth
Enter Kanye West. As a black man, who rose to prominence as a rapper, he has been expected to tow the line. He has been expected to further the popular Democrat narrative and repeat urban myths and subjective banter. On the Democratic Party plantation, every mind must think exactly like the master thinks or you will be exiled and tarred and feathered and cast out as a traitor.
For a few months, Kanye West seemed to say “I am an independent thinker.” “I am nobody’s stooge or mouthpiece.” He seemed to look at facts. He seemed to look at statistics and see that a rising tide actually does lift ALL boats. He seemed to realize that the President offers policies that are designed to help black people along with all other Americans. For a few months, Kanye’s reasoning was this; “Why should I be a chump when I can see the truth with my own two eyes?”
But, Kanye has now returned to walking in lock step as the plantation master requires. He is back on the plantation.
The civil rights movement was about making African-Americans a group of people with all the rights they deserve under the flag of a culture that was built around freedom. They have the right to think as they want to, without having a stigma attached to them because they think freely.
For a few months, Kanye West was smartly pointing this out. He went against the grain and thought outside the box. That box is the one that encases most black people. It is the box they find themselves in and it is labeled Democratic Party, left, liberal, progressive or any other moniker that describes a particular group-think mentality.
Candace Owens has tried to point this distinction out. Black people need to step back and look at history and look at the current climate of misinformation that is meant to keep them in a state of ideological slavery.
History shows us that Dred Scott, the KKK, the belief in extending slavery and segregated education were all products of the Democratic Party. The end of slavery, the Civil Rights Act and the rights of freed slaves were all efforts by the Republican Party. This is historic truth.
Unfortunately, Kanye West see’s what side his bread is buttered on. The people who buy his music are already brainwashed. He realized that there is no deprogramming these people who have pledged their very souls to the Democratic Party and the leftist agenda. For this, West was vilified for pointing out that truth matters, that facts are more important to him and that we have a president who wants the best for all Americans.
West gave into money and pressure and bowed out, going against he principles, to stop the opportunity to help so many other African-Americans, because, as he claims, he is being used. What really happened is that the Democratic machine got through to him with threats and intimidation. The almighty dollar speaks louder than principles. For Kanye, it is time to get back on the ideological plantation and stop thinking independently. It doesn’t buy mansions or expensive gifts for the wife.
Thanks for nothing Kanye. You appeared to give freedom a new voice, but really helping black America isn’t as important as the next big payday.
