Kanye West Does A 180 On Politics and That’s Not All


Kanye West’s visit to the White House could not have been any stranger if some deranged playwright had sat down and invented a new genre, “Theatre of the Bizarre.” In less than an hour’s time, West spanned the distance between talking about his brain “It’s equal on three parts,” (which is interesting, because the rest of us have bicameral brains but then again, we’re all from this planet) to how the 13th Amendment is a trap door. Which is a bad thing, according to West:

Would you build a trap door that if you mess up, that if accidentally something happens, then you fall and you end up next to the Unabomber? You gotta remove all that trap door out of the relationship. The four gentleman that wrote the 13th Amendment — and I think the way the universe works it’s perfect, we don’t have 13 floors, do we?

The four gentlemen that wrote the 13th Amendment, they didn’t look like the people they were amending. Also at that point it was illegal for blacks to read, or African-Americans to read, so that meant if you actually read the amendment you’d get locked up and turned into a slave. So what I think is we don’t need sentences, we need pardons, we need to talk to people.

That is classic satire. Any of the writers at SNL would kill to write satire that well. The SNL skit on Kanye West’s White House visit was not 1/10 as funny, because satire depends upon taking an inherently ridiculous situation and then extending the absurdity out that much further. When you start out with base material like this, how much more absurd can you stretch it?

In any event, West apparently got back on his meds, or wife Kim hit him in the face with a wet towel, or who knows what, because this is what he’s saying now.

This is a response to conservative activist Candace Owens, who asked West to support Blexit, a movement which Owens spearheads, which translates as “Black Exit” from the Democratic party, to be precise.

“Blexit is a renaissance,” Owens told Fox News in an interview published Monday. “Blexit is the black exit from the Democratic Party. It’s the black exit from permanent victimhood, the black exit from the false idea that we are somehow separate from the rest of America.

In any event, Owens wants to make sure that people understand that West is not the father of the Blexit movement, but only the designer of the Blexit logo.

Kanye saw my original design and said, ‘I can do it better.’ It certainly was. He redesigned the logo with vibrant colors inspired by his trip to Uganda.”

Apparently people in the black community are not jumping up and down to be associated with Blexit, fancy that. And here’s where it gets good.

The last sentence is the whammy. “I believe in love and compassion for people seeking asylum and parents who are fighting to protect their children from violence and war.” So do we, Kanye, so do we all. But Donald Trump, the one who “makes [you] feel like a man” does not. So how to reconcile that?

Poor Kanye, his eyes might have been wide open before, but they’re going to be bugging out of his head once he realizes where Trump is really coming from. As his former father figure would say, “Sad.”
