Kanye West has unleashed a shitstorm of tweets suggesting he may be a redpilled, Trump supporting, conservative, 2024 presidential hopeful.
OR he’s just being Kanye. It started Saturday morning when he tweeted that he loves the way Candace Owens thinks. Candace, a right leaning conservative up-and-comer with TurningPoint USA, has been gaining popularity with her hot takes on free speech etc. This caused pandemonium from both the left and the right. The lefties obviously panicking because they panic about everything, and the right changing gears from the “celebrities should keep their politics to themselves” routine to waving Kanye 2024 banners.
I’m rolling my eyes because it’s pretty obvious that this is just another publicity stunt from an absolute EXPERT at remaining relevant by outraging people. I mean, come on. Are we supposed to believe the same guy who said “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” on live television is also the guy tweeting that self victimization is a disease? Well, it is the same guy, but you’re crazy if you believe him.
Kanye West is arguably the most infamous provocateur of all time, and definitely the most effective. Everything he says and does is intended to cause outrage and keep his name the top trending topic for as long and as frequently as possible. And it works. Every. Time.
