Kanye West was a person not often on my list of needed-to or wanted-to follow celebrities. In my earlier days, I never listened to rap, so there was that. Then he married Kim Karshashian and I was so vehemently opposed to propping that worthless family up that I started spending even less attention on him, if that was possible.
Suddenly, though, as Donald Trump became president and attracted all kinds of people to his camp (“What do you have to lose” – remember?) it was becoming harder to ignore certain folks. Kanye was one of them. Wearing a MAGA hat and meeting the president in the Oval Office, Kanye knowingly embraced the firestorm and endorsed 45. Was some of it inspired by publicity? Sure, why not.
But as Kanye continues speaking out on important social and cultural issues, it feels like less and less a stunt while coming across as more and more his new thing. He certainly doesn’t need any more money or fame in this lifetime.
In one of his latest attacks on mainstream radicalism, Kanye West said: “There’s no such thing as a private conversation. God is always listening. And the Feds too.” before punctuating the statement with a smiley face.

Good stuff. And 100% accurate if you’ve ever thought about ordering more soap from Amazon and it suddenly shows up at your door.
Kanye made a huge splash at a fashion show last week in Paris sporting a “White Lives Matter shirt. It predictably melted what was left of progressives’ miniscule brains, but more importantly ignited a much-needed conversation.
Subsequently, he spoke to Tucker Carlson in an exclusive interview which only further propelled Ye to new heights. He had a direct message about both the Trump hat and the WLM shirt:
My so-called friends/ handlers around me told me said that if I like Trump my career would be over. That my life would be over. They said stuff like people get killed for wearing a hat like that. They threatened my life. They basically said that I would be killed for wearing the hat. I had someone call me last night and said anybody wearing a White Lives Matter shirt is going to be green lit. That means that they are going to beat them up if they wear it. I’m like okay, green light me then.
Then prompted by his wearing of a picture of an ultrasound, the musical artist said this in response to Carlson’s question:
I don’t care about what people’s response is. I care about the fact that there is more Black babies being aborted than born in New York City at this point. That 50% of Black death in America is abortion. So I really don’t care about people’s response I perform for an audience of one and that’s God.
Maybe it’s time I rethink my position on Kanye West. I don’t need to take guidance from a celebrity, but I welcome any sane and influential voice that will fight for our side.
