I don’t care what you think of Kanye West and his rap music artistry, but his recent endorsement of a Republican candidate is huge just because he’s such a superstar, and he could bring so much attention to the Republican primary in the black community.
Musician Kanye West says he considers retired neurosurgeon and current Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson to be a brilliant man.
“As soon as I heard [Ben] Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like, this is the most brilliant guy,” West told Vanity Fair in an interview published Thursday.
“And I think all the people running right now have something that each of the others needs,” West continued, adding that “this gladiator battle takes away from the main focus that the world needs help and the world needs all the people in a position of power or influence to come together.”
Given what an enormous narcissist that Kanye is, it’s pretty impressive that he’d admit how brilliant Ben Carson is.
Is this the beginning of what might be a reconquering of the black community by the Republican party?
I really hope so. The only hope that any community has is to adopt conservative values and reject the victim mentality of the liberal left.
And whether you like his music or not, Kanye’s endorsement of a brilliant conservative with an inspiring story of success is nothing but good for our party, and for this great country.
