Kanye has come to pick a fight with the status quo. And the Status quo doesn’t like it. At all.
What’s the most dangerous thing to an ideologue of any stripe? Critical thinking.
And whether Kanye has ‘jumped ship’ and joined Conservative causes or not — even he doesn’t know the answer to that question yet —
I haven't done enough research on conservatives to call myself or be called one. I'm just refusing to be enslaved by monolithic thought.

— he has still done America a tremendous service with the most powerful tool he has. His influence.
You see, John Legend knew what the risks were of Kanye wearing that Trump hat, the risks of him Tweeting that nothing changed in Chicago after 8 years of Obama.
That’s why John Legend sent him those texts. (It was not a great plan, in hindsight, since it backfired spectacularly. Kanye’s Famous Friend Tries To ‘Set Him Straight’ … Fails Hilariously)
Now, he’s using that influence again. The ideas that have generated this week’s political firestorm have now been set to music.
Which means that even his apolitical followers will be hearing some ideas that they don’t get to hear elsewhere.
It came shortly after West earned praise from the US president, and criticism from many others, for his signs of support on Twitter.
In the track, West says: “I know Obama was heaven-sent but ever since Trump won, it proved that I could be president.”
The US rapper goes on to add: “See that’s the problem with this damn nation, all blacks gotta be Democrats, man we ain’t even made it off the plantation.”
West, in the song featuring rapper T.I., also seems to address his hat expressing Mr Trump’s isolationist slogan, Make America Great Again.
“I never, ever stop fighting for the people, actually wearing a hat to show people that we equal,” he raps.
Which other ‘big name’ in the rap industry would have the balls to sing a line like:
See that’s the problem with this damn nation, all blacks gotta be Democrats, man we ain’t even made it off the plantation.”
In any other context, this would be celebrated as ‘speaking truth to power’.
Think this will be celebrated in the same way?
Sure it will.
Just not by the people who USUALLY use that phrase.
With the Trump $100 bill, gift giving just got a whole lot easier.
What’s not to like? They get a gift, and you get to crow about just how good Trump’s first year has been.
It’s win-win, right? Heck yeah.
Where would you get such a wonderful gift? We’re glad you asked.
It’s right here –> Trump $100 Bill
Or maybe when you give it, they’re uptight and have no sense of ha-ha.
We’ve got something for that, too.
Give them a book.
But not just ‘any’ book.
Give them something that can help them get over their serious case of Trump-derangement Butthurt.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
