I have never been a big fan of the music of Kanye West, but what I’ve seen of him lately has been downright inspiring.  As you’ve probably read in the news, the megastar (who happens to be married to Kim Kardashian) does not care what his critics think about him.  Recently, he’s complimented conservatives and conservative ideas.  He’s even been seen with Donald Trump (gasp!) much to the horror of Democrats.

I’m happy to report that Kanye is still causing liberal heads to explode.  When he appeared Thursday on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” he said he wasn’t going to be bullied by liberals.

“As a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things,” he said, “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. [That] I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks — we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought … we can only be Democrats and all.”

Kanye has a point.  When you hear Democrats talking about how much they love “diversity,” remember this.  They are all for the kind of diversity that’s easy to achieve — people of different colors who think exactly the same way.

“I didn’t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash. It took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the [MAGA] hat no matter what the consequences were,” he said.  “And what it represented to me is not about policies, because I’m not a politician like that. But it represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said, in saying, you can’t bully me. Liberals can’t bully me, news can’t bully me, the hip-hop community, they can’t bully me,” he said, “because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye.”

Love it.  Not only because it’s fun to see someone who believes passionately in his ideas, but also because it’s fun to see the finger wagging libs meet someone they can’t control.
