Kanye West on Saturday committed Hollywood heresy by offering praise for right-wing political pundit and YouTuber Candace Owens, A.K.A. Red Pill Black.
After setting off a firestorm among angry leftists with his pro-Owens tweets, the rapper audaciously continued his WrongThink by posting fundamental conservative principles. For example, Kanye wrote about the importance of rejecting victimhood, how the “thought police” are trying to suppress freedom of thought, and how living in the past can stifle progress.
Liberals were predictably unhappy. Kanye is a powerhouse in the world of entertainment and is apparently supposed to hold only views that align with progressives. Reporters and other celebrities condemned the performer as “shallow” and said he should “stick to Thots.”
Here are some of those conservative/libertarian-aligned tweets from West:
Kanye even tweeted that the “thought police” “f***ed” with the wrong man, before deleting it:
Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro responded to the “controversial” tweets to note that he’s looking forward to one more statement from Kanye to officially top-off the conservative tweet-fest:
Kanye met with then-president-elect Donald Trump for a meeting at Trump Tower in 2016 to the displeasure of many liberals.
