Kanye West is an American entertainer and entrepreneur, hip hop musician and record producer. He is one of the most successful and popular of recent times. His records have won nine Grammy awards. He converted to Christianity during his career.[1] In July 2020, West announced his candidacy of the 2020 presidential election.

West began writing poetry at the age of five.[2] West has been labeled illiterate by racist liberals and Democrats.[3] According to CNN, West is an example of "what happens when negroes don't read"[4] by a fellow black American on CNN.

2020 Presidential campaign

West declared his candidacy for President on July 4, 2020. West is pro-life, stating "Planned Parenthood's have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the devil's work." More black babies are aborted in New York than live Black births.[5] West entered the race after Biden's "you ain't black" comment. West said,

"that is a form of racism and white supremacy and white control, to say that all black people need to be Democrat, and to assume that me running is me splitting the vote. All of that information is being charged up on social media platforms by Democrats. And Democrats used to tell me the same. Democrats have threatened me. The reason why this is, the first day I registered to vote is because I was scared. I was told that if I voted on Trump, my music career would be over. I was threatened into being in one party. I was threatened as a celebrity into being in one party. I was threatened as a black man into the Democratic Party. And that's what the Democrats are doing emotionally to my people, threatening them to the point where this white man can tell a black man, 'if you don't vote for me you're not black.'"[6]

West is supported by Elon Musk.

Democrat voter suppression and disenfranchisement

As Kanye West’s presidential campaign raced to get on the ballot before deadlines, Democrat lawyer Marc Elias was fighting to disenfranchise voters, specifically targeting voter suppression of Black voters. Elias involvement affirms the belief that Democrats are concerned that having Kanye West on the ballot, especially in swing states, could siphon Black votes away from Democratic nominee Joe Biden.[7] West made ballot status in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Vermont, Tennessee, Minnesota, Idaho, and Iowa.

Elias, chair of Perkins Coie’s Political Law Group, hired FusionGPS to write bogus information on the 2016 Trump campaign and pass it off to the FBI in an effort rig the outcome and destroy American democracy. Elias now works for Kamala Harris and previously John Kerry. Now Elias is the counsel in a suit to keep Kanye West off the ballot in Virginia. The suit asked for immediate court intervention as deadlines approach for printing and mailing absentee ballots.

Secretary of State Frank LaRose under the guidance of Ohio GOP Governor Mike DeWine fought hard to keep Kanye off ballot. On technicality, Kanye was denied ballot access. This decision would face additional legal scrutiny. LaRose fought against Kanye's inclusion at the Ohio Supreme Court, and won. [8]

Jesus is King

In November 2019 West performed a surprise concert of his album Jesus is King for 200 male inmates at Harris County jail in Houston, Texas. West later performed for a smaller crowd of female inmates. According to CNN. the concert left many inmates in tears, and West said his purpose was “a mission, not a show.” Texas governor Greg Abbott praised West's actions saying in a tweet, “What @kanyewest does to inspire the incarcerated is transformative. Saving one soul at a time.”[9]

Kanye West says that parents need to protect their children from being ‘indoctrinated’ into embracing lives of vapid meaninglessness by the media and the entertainment industry. Speaking to an audience at Joel Osteen’s church in Houston West pointed out that many famous people are in service to Satan and not God because they value money and power above all else.

“You start to feel like Satan is the most powerful and you start to feel that if you service God in life it means you will not prosper and the only way to prosper is in service to fame,” said Kanye. ...Satan stole all the best producers. Satan stole all the best musicians. Satan stole all the best designers. Hollywood puts images and symbolism in movies and tv shows to indoctrinate your kids into lives of emptiness, service to self, and feeding the eye..."

Kanye reassured the audience that a shift was happening and that his conversion to Christianity is a major part of that shift. “Jesus has won the victory because now the greatest artist that God has ever created is working for him…All of that arrogance and confidence and cockiness y’all seen me use before, God is now using for Him.” West turned his attention to cultural degeneracy, telling the crowd; “We have our own daughters and we’re still rapping about trying to hook up with somebody’s daughter.” He went on to urge parents about the necessity of “protecting your kids from the indoctrination of the media, the thousands of thousands of images that are fed to children by the age of 6 or 7.”[10]

Oval Office meeting

Kanye West meets with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office. The white racist mainstream media was extremely hostile toward a black man getting to uppity.

In a publicly televised Oval Office meeting with President Trump, Kanye proposed moving Adidas shoe manufacturers from overseas to the South Side of Chicago to create jobs and alleviate minority unemployment. Racist liberals and Democrats called West mentally ill, a minstrel show, and an illiterate token Negro for challenging globalism. He continued to express support for Trump.[11]

He has pushed back against left-wing identity politics.[12]

Prior to President Trump's election, in 2015 Kanye West announced that he would be running for President of the United States of America in 2020. Many people have joked about his announcement, however, 2016 Republican front-runner Donald Trump responded positively to the announcement saying, "He's actually a different kind of a person than people think, he's a nice guy. I hope to run against him some day."

Personal life

Kanye West's mother Donda, a former chair of the English department at Chicago State University who acted as Kanye's manager, died Nov 10, 2007 following a cosmetic surgery procedure. She was 58 years old.[13] West is engaged to be married to Alexis Phifer.[14] His father, Ray West, a sociology professor and former member of the Black Panther Party [15][16]

In 2016 West was hospitalized after an emotional break, which led him to cancel a then-ongoing tour. After the incident he began to study Christianity, finally announcing his conversion in 2019. In October 2019 he released Jesus Is King, an album of religious material. Despite secular media basically criticizing the album, it set Billboard records in topping 22 different charts, holding down all top 10 spots on two charts (actually holding down the #11 spot as well on the Hot Gospel Songs chart), and having all 11 songs debut on the Hot 100 chart. West required those working on the album to practice a sexually-pure lifestyle.[17] West's album Jesus Is King performed very well, reaching first place in number of sales.[18]

Criticism

Kanye attracted considerable media attention in September 2005, when he appeared on a television fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina victims and famously stated "George Bush doesn't care about black people." He later said he made that statement because of a "welfare mentality."[19]

West was again the subject of controversy at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, where he took the microphone from pop music singer Taylor Swift while she was about to give an acceptance speech and said that she did not deserve it as much as Beyonce Knowles. This upset the then 19 year old Swift and caused backlash against West from many notable celebrities and President Barack Hussein Obama. It was also speculated that this interaction was spurred by anti-white racism, as previously demonstrated in his 2005 Bush comment.

He also created a stir when he posed for the cover of the February 2006 Rolling Stone magazine portraying Jesus Christ, wearing a crown of thorns on his head with blood running down his face.[20]

Liberals have criticized West – like they do for all blacks who are not liberal Democrats – for deviating from left-wing orthodoxy.[21]
