FoxNews.com reports that
Kanye West took to Twitter on Tuesday to reveal he’s had enough of politics.
The outspoken fan of President Trump tweeted: “My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!”
What caused the change of heart? It’s not entirely clear, but in another tweet, he referenced Blexit – a campaign developed by conservative activist Candace Owens aiming to move African American voters away from the Democratic Party. Owens is communications director for the right-leaning Turning Point USA.
In a tweet, the rapper insisted that he hadn’t wanted any involvement with Blexit, and didn’t design the logo on its clothing, despite her claims that he did.
“I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they didn’t want their name on it so she used mine,” West tweeted. “I never wanted any association with Blexit. I have nothing to do with it.”
Turning Point USA did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Other tweets from West on Tuesday referenced several different social issues.
“I support creating jobs and opportunities for people who need them the most, I support prison reform, I support common-sense gun laws that will make our world safer,” one tweet read.
“I support those who risk their lives to serve and protect us and I support holding people who misuse their power accountable. I believe in love and compassion for people seeking asylum and parents who are fighting to protect their children from violence and war,” another post read.
He continued on, expressing his appreciation to those who supported his “ACTUAL beliefs” and “vision for a better world.”
West has expressed his political opinions in the past, including his support of President Trump. The rapper paid a visit to the White House earlier this month, where he met with the president.
“…I believe in music. I believe in love.”
Sorry. I got carried away.
It appears that Kanye has had a “change of heart”.
- His wife, Kim Kardashian told him that they would not get invited to any more of the “great” parties that the Hollywood Elite throw because of his support of President Trump. There could be a more intimate codicil to this theory. However, I do not even want to think about it.
- The Democratic Hierarchy got in touch with him and “set him straight”, convincing him to return to the political party that “he is supposed to be in”.
- His agent called him and explained to him who his “core audience” was and how his music sales were going to suffer because of his “error in judgment”.
Something had to happen in order for Kanye to come to the conclusion that he was “out of line” in supporting the president.
That is indeed a shame.
The #Blexit Movement is a good thing.
With Black Unemployment at a record low and more and more black Americans walking away from the Democratic Party, one would have hoped that Kanye would have realized the same thing that they did: The Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing for black America.
I’ll take that back. They have done something.
They have encouraged them since President Johnson’s implementation of “The Great Society” to let “Uncle Sugar” take care of them, assuring them that as long as they continued to vote Democrats into public office that they would be “taken care of”.
It has been those black Americans who have broken out of the cycle of government-assisted poverty who have come to realize that the Democratic Party’s “benevolence” was, in fact, a boat anchor, tied to them to keep them from reaching the shores of self-reliance.
By the way, a bunch of successful young black Americans met with President Trump the other day and, according to them, they love the guy.
And, they didn’t feel “used” at all.
They felt empowered.
