It would seem like a celebrity, one with a spotty public relations record and bombastic personality, running a half-in vanity campaign for president wouldn’t warrant a huge effort by the dems and media to discredit and destroy him. And you definitely would think they’d be careful to do it to a black celebrity.
But for some reason they really get after Kanye, and Tucker Carlson explained why on his show last night: they’re afraid of him. You can’t “cancel” Kanye, said Tucker. He also brought up how the left and Google have had the same problem trying to destroy J.K. Rowling.
What’s really amazing is when he shows how CNN turned on him. Going from calling him to “controversial” to calling him an outright lunatic who is mentally deranged.
“These people really are actually worried but they’re not worried about Kanye West or his family, they don’t care about them. They’re worried about the threat that West poses to the Democratic Party orthodoxy and therefore to their power,” said Carlson. “They don’t say that out loud, they are liars, so instead they continue to play the role of psychiatric nurse.”
“At this moment, the most compelling voice against abortion and Planned Parenthood is not a Republican. The most widely heard Christian evangelist is not ordained,” said Carlson. “Instead, he is a rapper married to a Kardashian who by the way, everyone says is crazy.”
“Kanye West is running for president but that’s not really the headline. The headline is that on core conservative issues, not political issues but on foundational questions about life and children and what happens when you die, no one with a national platform has been more honest or sincere or effective than Kanye West has been, maybe in generations,” Tucker continued. “It’s all pretty shocking, talk about an unlikely messenger, but it’s real.”
Tucker says GOP politicians don’t talk the way Kanye does on these issues because they’re afraid, but West doesn’t have to be.
The whole clip is amazing. Carlson really goes after them for their “insultingly stupid” messages.
