In the latest of several controversial interviews, Kanye West says that finding Jesus is what has freed him from the clutches of the Democratic Party and their “brainwashing.”
The 43-year-old born-again rapper, who just released a new Christian-themed album last week titled Jesus Is King, sat down with radio host Big Boy on Friday. It was supposed to be part of his promotion of his album, which he describes as “an expression of the gospel.”
Ye certainly didn’t hold back on any of his wild beliefs and opinions while he was there.
Kanye infamously expressed his support for President Donald Trump in 2018, when he visited the White House sporting a red “Make America Great Again” hat. That appearance led to the rapper being widely accused of abandoning the culture, but Kanye told Big Boy that African Americans don’t really have their own culture.
According to Kanye, it’s all just been adopted from a hodgepodge of consumerism that has been pushed on them by Democrats in order to keep them trapped.
Kanye thinks that the Democratic Party has been backing policies for decades to hurt the black community, saying, “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 our children…” He then added, “Thou shall not kill.”
But now, he’s apparently free from their control, telling Big Boy “This is a free man talking.”
Big Boy pressed Kanye about his support for Trump, asking if he has considered that his support of the president could be viewed as a tacit endorsement of racism. Kanye responded by trying to flip it around by saying, “The most racist thing a person can tell me is that I’m supposed to choose something based on my race.”
“I’m not telling nobody not to vote Democrat,” Ye continued, but then also strangely added, “I love Obama, I love lemonade, I love Wingstop, I love Polos, I love Jordans.”
He also managed to squeeze in some chatter about how much he hates social media, claiming that it’s “doing more to hurt families and families are the key to health.”
Of course, he’s married to one of Instagram’s most popular stars, so I can’t imagine the turmoil that new belief must be causing in the Kardashian-West household right now. I mean, what else is internet service used for if not for “keeping up with the Kardashians,” am I right?
This all comes on the heels of another recent interview, in which he spoke with Zane Lowe with Beats1 about his changed beliefs involving his daughter. Kanye says that his newly-found faith has changed the way he thinks and feels, prompting him to ban makeup and crop tops for his daughter.
Kim admitted to E! News that this has also been a sore spot, considering Kim runs her own makeup line.
