It was Dr. Maya Angelou who once said, “When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.”

Kanye West is MAGA, far-right, alt-right, white supremacist, skinhead, extremist, nationalist, Christian nationalist, whatever adjective/verb you want to call it, and he has been for some time now.

He also hasn’t hidden it.

While West’s anti-Blackness never managed to get him cancelled, his anti-semitism did.

That’s quite a double standard. Don’t get me wrong. I think West should have been cancelled. He literally begged for it.

During an interview on Drink Champs, West taunted, “I can say antisemitic things and Adidas can’t drop me. Now what?”

West was wrong. He can only say anti-Black things and not be dropped. On the same podcast, he claimed that George Floyd did not die at the hands of Derek Chauvin, but rather, he died because of his use of Fentanyl. On October 3, along with Candace Owens, he wore a shirt that said White Lives Matter.

However, this was another reminder that you can literally degrade, denigrate, and mock Black people unchecked, and this is why people do it...

It is one thing to be a Black Republican or a Black conservative. That was never my problem with West, or say, Owens. It’s another thing entirely when you don a red MAGA cap and you knowingly go along with ALL that it represents.

I don’t know if West is just a tool for these people, or if he’s really been indoctrinated, but he’s been on his job for at least a decade now.

What part of Kanye West stands for far right ideology and all that entails did people not understand?

This includes anti-Blackness, racism, misogyny, anti-immigrant bias, homophobia, and yes, antisemitism. No, it does not matter that West is Black.

When West or Owens professed their love for Hitler, and they both did, what do you think they meant?

What do you really think the alt-right is up to, and why don’t you understand they’re dangerous and a real threat to society? They are slowly inching society back into the past, and yes, they have Black foot soldiers. They are…
