Kanye West continues his swing to the right, and America’s so-called progressives are absolutely outraged.
After tweeting support for President Trump a week ago, Yeezy is continuing to upset the left by pointing to the flat-out racist history of the Democrat party.
The music icon posted a text exchange he had with a friend named Steve that included the fact that a Republican was the one who ended slavery. As to be expected, the left rushed to condemn Ye’ for daring to tell the truth.
Within seconds the internet was set on fire, as leftists came in to try and correct West with the “southern strategy” myth.
Tell your man yes the southern Dixiecrats WERE racist, BUT in 1964 LBJ signed the civil rights act and they left Dems to become southern base of the GOP, fact. Look up Nixon’s “southern strategy” Ye the Dodgers used to play in Brooklyn too,they’re not the same team playing I. LA — Nik Carter (@TheNotoriousNIK) April 30, 2018
Once again, John Legend and others rushed in to try and defend the democrat party.
As you can see, leftists like to use this idea of a “southern strategy” claiming that the only way Republicans could win the south was to appeal to racists. They act as though the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 upset southern Democrats so much, they became Republicans. What they fail to recognize is that years earlier President Eisenhower, a Republican, supported the decision of Brown vs. the Board of Education, which lead to the ending of segregated schools.
Furthermore, according to Vanderbilt professor of Political Science Carol Swain, Republicans didn’t have a majority of southern congressional seats until as late as 1994. That’s 30 years after the so-called “southern strategy” the left likes to pin on President Nixon. No offense, but if that was their strategy, it failed miserably.
Of course, you’ll never hear the left talk about the facts regarding the Democrat Party’s past. Instead, they point to myths that Swain debunks in the following videos:
West continued to provoke the left, tweeting out thoughts by conservative thinker Thomas Sowell shared in another conversation:
Whether or not Kanye is just stirring the pot, it’s funny to see the “tolerant” left go absolutely bonkers. They really can’t stand it when someone disagrees with them, especially when that someone is famous. They made Shania Twain issue an apology for saying she’d vote for Trump if she were an American.
Maybe Kanye has finally come around to understanding true conservative values. Maybe he sees which party supports hard work, freedom, and keeping families together. Or maybe he’s just sick and tired of being told that he has to be a democrat because it’s the cool thing to do.
Whaever the case may be, I for one hope the triggering continues, because it is absolutely hilarious.
