“Crazy” Kanye West Delivered Some Pretty Wise Words to the Woke Ahead of Barrett’s Confirmation
The September death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has thrust the issue of abortion onto center stage. The left vehemently opposed Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation because of her pro-life views, railing that every woman must have the right to choose.
At the same time, liberals have hit President Trump hard over his handling of the pandemic, blaming him for the deaths of over 220,000 Americans. Additionally, they’ve made the issue of systemic racism front and center and repeatedly labeled the President and anyone who supports him as racists (again). They’ve also blamed police for the deaths of unarmed blacks and have excused the violence, looting and destruction that spread throughout the U.S. this summer.
During a lengthy interview with podcast host Joe Rogan (released on Saturday), Kanye West called out America’s woke for their hypocrisy. While the woke, as a group, are hypocritical about many things, his message to Rogan was one that, frankly, had never occurred to me.
West pointed out an inconvenient truth. He told Rogan:
The last figure I saw was there were 210,000 deaths due to Covid in America. And everywhere you go, you see someone with a mask on…
With abortion culture, there are 1,000 black children aborted a day. Daily, we are in genocide.
So more black children have died…since February, than people have died of Covid. And everyone wears a mask.
That is a powerful reality.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson played the clip on his Monday night show and he and Candace Owens discussed “the clarity” of West’s message. Owens said what West was “really getting at was selective outrage culture.”
She then stated another stunning truth that had also never occurred to me. “The black population,” she told Carlson, “would be double what it is today if it were not for abortion.”
Think of the enormity of that statement.
Owens told Carlson that 400 black babies are aborted for every 1,000 pregnancies. The comparative figure for whites is 103.
Making an adjustment for the number of white babies aborted, the black population would represent roughly 35-38 percent of the U.S. electorate.
She asks why no one is outraged over this data. And, more than anything else, she blames these circumstances on Democratic policies. Owens explains:
You and I know who Margaret Sanger was. It’s not taught in schools, but we’re supposed to be outraged because Amy Coney Barrett believes in life. And we’re not supposed to be outraged that a eugenicist founded Planned Parenthood with black Americans being her target. She wrote extensively about how she believed in the extermination of certain races that she thought were not fit to be in this society, that she did not want the government to take care of. And black Americans were among them. And most people don’t know this stuff. And here we have Kanye West who is speaking out and saying ‘this is wrong.’
So, while the left is dressing up and playing Halloween, pretending that we live in some dystopian reality because Amy Coney Barrett is pro-life, black Americans are living a dystopian reality thanks to Democrat policies which have resulted in half the population…the black population would be double what it is today if it were not for abortion.
Owens puts the blame on the educational system. “The education system, Tucker, is being wiped. We’re replacing hard academics with psychological conditioning.”
“Black Americans,” she says sarcastically, “are learning about ‘Black Lives Matter’ and how depressing it is and how we should be blaming white Americans for everything, but we’re not learning about our real history. How we have been conditioned to allow Planned Parenthood clinics into all our neighborhoods. 63 percent of them are in black and Hispanic neighborhoods. This is systematic targeting.”
Owens notes that, “If you’re looking for systemic racism, you may want to look at Democrat policies. You may want to take a look at why we, as a society, are saying there is something wrong with a woman who believes in life.
“It’s laughable that people want us to be outraged about other things and not this,” concludes Owens.
Moreover, why is no one outraged about the high number of blacks who die as a result of the black-on-black crime that occurs regularly in Democrat-run cities?
Instead, we hear blacks like Michelle Obama reinforcing the narrative that Democrats have used to maintain control over blacks for decades.
In June, the former first lady delivered a virtual commencement address to 2020 graduates.
Within 90 seconds, the topic turned to race. Not only have we had to deal with the pandemic, she told graduates, “but also by the rumbling of the age-old fault lines that our country was built on. The lines of race and power that are once again so nakedly exposed for all of us to grapple with.”
With one of the most sour expressions I’ve ever seen, she said, “What’s happening now is the direct result of decades of prejudice and inequality.”
“The truth is, when it comes to all those tidy stories of hard work and self-determination that we like to tell ourselves about America,” she says as she shakes her head to indicate this is a lie, “the reality is a lot more complicated than that. Because for too many people in this country no matter how hard they work, there are structural barriers working against them that just make the road longer and rockier.”
Obama was perpetuating the decades old myth that stands at the center of the racial divide in America today.
This statement is the crux of the problem. By their actions and their words, Democrats have instilled in blacks the notion that they are helpless, and the odds are stacked against them. Like all of the Democrat’s lies, it’s been repeated so often, many blacks firmly believe that no matter how hard they try, the system works against them, and they will never get ahead.
People like Kanye West and Candace Owens are working to expose these lies. They are shining light on the reality of the situation and there are signs that some blacks are paying attention. This is likely the reason we’ve seen a noticeable increase in black support for President Trump.
Many learned about Trump’s numerous initiatives to help the African-American community for the first time while watching the debate. Prior to that, they’d only heard he was the most racist president we’ve ever had.
Blacks are just starting to understand that the Democrats, for whom most have always voted, are the cause of, rather than the answer to, their problems.
Let this be the start of a great awakening.
