Kanye West may be the only man in America that could say these things and not be vilified.
He’s now going against the flow not just with a MAGA hat and wearing his (admittedly new) faith on his sleeve, but he’s tackling some of the big cultural issues.
We’ll see about that one.
For some reason, black voters continue to choose Democrats over Republicans despite the history of the Democratic Party and their current inability to make life better for many poor, black families.
In the 2016 Presidential Election, 88 percent of black Americans voted Democrat, while only 8 percent of that same demographic voted Republican.
In a 40+ minute interview with Big Boy, he covered a lot of ground and at one point took a swipe at Democrats who push abortion on demand which disproportionately affects African-Americans.
West went on to take a swipe at Democratic lawmakers, saying: ‘We’re [black Americans] brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking.
‘Democrats had us voting for Democrats with food stamps for years. What are you talking about guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort children.’

Kanye went on to say that last year he was told to vote one way because he was black and he’s now being told to vote the same way because he’s Christian.
He was not having it.
Check it out:
The current top comment on YouTube is, “Everybody think they so woke but they following the rules of what woke is supposed to be.”
Ain’t that the truth!
Switching from one set of preconceived set of ideas to another preconceived set of ideas isn’t “getting woke” — especially since they are the same ideas.
Waking up to the pre-set cultural programming based on identity politics and finally thinking things through for yourself is precisely what is meant by “woke” and ironically not what it is used to describe.
Magaret Sanger, who founded Planned Parenthood, was also a eugenicist. That’s just fact. Abortion kills black babies at a higher rate and some pro-life activists are calling it a “black genocide.”
Kanye’s chat with James Corden during “Airpool Karaoke” went further than not just taking a stance against abortion — he said that “the richest thing that you can have is as many children as possible.”
Encouraging big families and opposing abortion? That’s pretty amazing for such a massive cultural icon, wouldn’t you say?
It’s been quite interesting to watch the evolution of Kanye West.
Just a few years ago, I dismissed him as a narcissistic nut-job. Marrying Kim Kardashian, a woman more plastic than Barbie, and in my view, about as philosophically deep, didn’t help my view of him. Neither did his “Imma let you finish…” moment at the VMAs 10 years ago when he grabbed the mic from Taylor Swift improve my opinion of him.
But, as I took this job, and was forced (almost kicking and screaming) to pay attention to popular culture a bit more, I found him… interesting.
Then, last year, he broke out of the mold and said things that I tell my kids — think for yourself. He became even more interesting.
Now that he’s come out as a Christian and a free thinker who likes both Trump and Obama, I find myself absolutely riveted by him. I’m even applauding Kim Kardashian for using her celebrity status to advocate for things that she believes in like prison reform while educating herself on the issues that matter to her. After listening to snippets of Jesus Is King, it’s obvious that Kanye isn’t just talented — he’s tapped into something that is lacking in the culture.
Leftists always try to silence those who are speaking truth. They’re waging a war on our family and culture.

I love that Kanye is saying the things that need to be said with a platform that can actually reach people and using the medium that can bring the most impact — music.
(Just don’t tell my kids, especially my teen son who is a big fan of Kanye.)
I think this is one of those amazing conversion stories that happens once in a blue moon that will have ripple effects in the culture.
It kind of reminds me of another stark conversion:
And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he rose and was baptized…
I’m not saying that he’s the next Apostle Paul, but Kanye, like Paul, made a 180. Christians should encourage and pray for him. I know I will.
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
