Here’s the part of the conversation that the headlines in the MSM have been so carefully avoiding.
Starting at the 3:40 mark, Kanye answers some of Jimmy’s ‘Trump’ questions.
He goes straight to the difference about being motivated by ‘love’ or by ‘fear’.
“Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things — you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me. And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over,” West said. “I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks, we are supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only be Democrats and all.”
But he said it took him months before he had “the confidence to stand up and put on the hat.”
“It represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said,” West said. “Liberals can’t bully me; news can’t bully me; the hip-hop community, they can’t bully me. Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye. And I actually quite enjoy when people actually are mad at me about certain things.”
It says a lot that even Kanye had to go through the ‘gut-check’ process.
Every time he wanted to say ‘I like Trump’ he hesitated. He couldn’t say it out loud, because of what MIGHT happen to him for doing it.
‘my career would be over’ — and this is KANYE saying that.
Freaking KANYE. The Trailblazing Innovator and Gazillionaire.
HE was afraid to say ‘I like the guy’. Becuase he knew he would be attacked by the Social Justice Mob.
If even HE was afraid of the backlash from the expected group-think, how pressured do you think everyone else must feel?
If you were wondering why the Left was so desperate to discredit the PEOPLE on the right, rather than their ideas, it’s a deliberate tactic.
If people can be trained to hate and fear the Right, they won’t look too closely at how our ideas are different than theirs.
But with Employment levels for minorities and women soaring to new heights, exactly as the Right had said they would, that lie is getting harder and harder to sell.
Which makes the courage of people like Kanye or Candace Owens, who (in her words) ‘Left the Democrat Plantation’ so very, very dangerous.
After all these years, white Democrats still believe that they own black people. When you go against how they desire you to think, they viciously attack you.
I was proud to stand with conviction alongside the minority police force today.
I escaped the leftist plantation.

If it took courage for them to break free of a political straightjacket, how much more courage would it take ‘the little guy’ with so much to lose?
Those displays of courage have emboldened others. You’ve seen #walkaway which close observers like Scott Adams have noticed is energized by that same ‘love/fear’ paradigm shift Kanye was talking about.
That shift could be DEVASTATING for the Democrats if they were to lose their iron grip on Minority voters.
And that grip is already showing signs of slipping:

Why be average? It’s so overrated.
Everyone does that.
