‘Kanye West is what happens when Negroes
don’t read’: CNN guest declares artist
too stupid to meet with Trump

BizPac Review, by Tom Tillison

Kanye West serves as an example of the intolerance to varying opinion on the left, and how they react when people of color escape the Democratic plantation. CNN commentator Bakari Sellers responded to the rapper’s scheduled meeting with President Donald Trump on Thursday to discuss prison reform and job opportunities for ex-cons by effectively calling West ignorant. (Video) “Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read,” Sellers told CNN host Don Lemon. West is a de facto pied piper, showing other black Americans that they too can leave the Democratic Party and the left knows full well how crippling

If Kanye West is what happens to blacks who don´t read, they should all put down their books. In 2005 and 2015, Time Magazine named West one of the 100 most influential people in the world

wow - the Left is really outdoing itself these days. all pretense of high-mindedness, tolerance, proper vocabulary - it´s all out the window now with their ugly souls bared for all to see. and with absolutely zero self-awareness. i´ve never seen anything like it - except with the psychologically disturbed.

Kanye´s done some dumb things in his past but being an advocate for Trump isn´t one of them. Attacking him for his support of Trump is just another example of how the Left absolutely hates anyone who thinks for themselves-especially blacks.

One of the perks of leaving the democrat party, is that you no longer are obligated to listen to people like Don Lemon. You don´t have to jump through liberal hoops on command or pretend to join in with the latest liberal outrage even if you couldn´t care less about the subject.

Kanye is one of the most creative artists in the world of Hip Hop and has developed his own line of clothes that he designs. His music and clothes may not be my style. However he´s a creative doer and an individual thinker and I respect that about him.
If you ever listen to him speak, you´ll hear a very thoughtful person. Basically, he´s his own man and does not conform to the Democrat plantation model they have for all blacks.
What I like most about Kanye is his devotion to his family and his deceased mother Donda.
Without question, Kanye´s admiration for President Trump is genuine and not a stunt for attention. I see similarities they have.

CNN should be condemn for calling him stupid. Of course they don´t have the gray matter to know the difference. Where´s the NAACP? Also, that comment may have been a code telling other Blacks to not support Kanye or else they too will be demeaned and ridiculed by the fake news cartel.

Diamond and Silk, along with Candace Owens and Kanye West have cracked the mold that the Dems have put Blacks into for decades. It´s refreshing to hear them speak and I applaude them all. Bravo!

Rest assured President Trump will counter punch that CNN comment and make it sting bad and it will also be perfectly timed.

Has CNN even had the graciousness to apologize to Kanye for this travesty which aired on their network? I have found myself deeply surprised at the antics of the Left the past couple of years, but this incident well and truly shocked me in its boorish and racist bigotry. Even Archie Bunker didn´t say anything like this back in the day.

I always took him for a dumb rapper who happened to marry into the Kardashian family. Well, was I ever wrong! His entree into fame and money was a word that rhymes with (c)rap!

What the left says, the truth is usually 180° away. They seem to have an aversion to the truth, as it exposes whatever narrative they are peddling. Kanye is actually what happens when anyone educates themselves and learns to think for themselves. Many blacks have never read a book in their life, as they are too busy living the thug life out on street corners.

As usual the liberals prove their own embedded racism.

I was reminded of a great tweet from Candace Owens recently, which read:

"When white liberals try to tell me about my oppression then get oppressive when I disagree—it points to a virtue-signaling patronizing mentality that at its core believes in the white-savior archetype.

I don’t need saving."

Exactly right, Candace!

The really crazy thing is that this attitude extends into the African-American liberal´s mind set. So, essentially, Candace could eliminate the word "white" from her post and it would still ring true. Maybe more so!

While the job of a Green Beret entails eliminating U.S. enemies both here and abroad, one member of the 66-year-old special operations force is now being prosecuted for having done exactly that. According to reports, once-decorated Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn has been charged in the premeditated murder of an Afghani bomb maker suspected of murdering two Marines. The charge stems from actions the former Green Beret took on the field while deployed eight years ago and words he spoke with Fox News host Bret Baier six years afterward.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe has cost taxpayers nearly $25 million, according to a Justice Department report Friday. Nearly $4.6 million of that was shelled out in the six months between April 1 and Oct. 31. That’s a slight uptick from the $4.5 million the Mueller probe cost between Oct. 1, 2017, and March 31. President Trump, who has dismissed the Mueller probe as a “hoax” and a “witch hunt,” has blasted its cost. In June, he wrote on Twitter “the Russian Hoax Investigation has now cost our government over $17 million and going up fast.” The figures were

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

If we want to stop climate change, we’ll have to stop pumping out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In order to do that, we’ll need to replace all the sources of carbon pollution—like fossil fuel plants and combustion vehicles—with clean, renewable alternatives. But there’s a problem: According to a new study, we might not have enough materials to make that happen. Plenty of high-tech electronic components, like solar panels, rechargeable batteries, and complex circuits, require specific rare metals. (Snip) mined in large quantities in countries around the world, and they make their way into the supply chains of

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling took a swing at Bronx Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, slamming her intelligence after she complained that her ideas are being scrutinized because of her young age. The 29-year-old Democratic Socialist responded this week to what she considered a double standard she has observed in press coverage of herself compared to House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Boston Globe reported. “Double standards are Paul Ryan being elected at 28 and immediately being given the benefit of his ill-considered policies considered genius; and me winning a primary at 28 to immediately be

The Chief Justice of California’s Supreme Court announced on Thursday that she had left the Republican Party following the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from Palo Alto, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, alleging that Kavanaugh assaulted her in the 1980s when they were both high school students.

A federal judge in Texas late Friday threw the health coverage of some 20 million Americans in limbo by ruling Obamacare must be scrapped because Congress struck the penalty for failing to obtain insurance coverage. The invalidation of the landmark 2010 law is certain to send shock waves through the U.S. health system and Washington after a midterm election seen in part as a rebuke to Republican efforts to tear down Obamacare.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
