Chance the Rapper joins ‘Kanye movement’ saying ‘Black people don’t have to be democrats’: the Internet implodes

Liberals and leftists are not tolerant of support for President Trump, not even even remotely, and Kanye West’s recent supportive remarks have set a flurry of chaos across the Internet and may have prompted another prominent figure, Chance the Rapper, to break ranks.

Chance the Rapper voiced support for freedom of thought, tweeting Wednesday night that “Black people don’t have to be democrats.”

The response has been vulgar, shockingly so. The Daily Wire has a long list of examples HERE.

“No one is upset Kanye’s not a Democrat. They’re upset that he’s enabling and fanboying over a racist wannabe authoritarian who has made it his mission to separate families, discriminate against POC and LGBT people, and remove himself from criminal accountability.” – @pete_forester

“It’s not about that though, Chance. It’s about the fact that he is supporting who a man who time and time again has proven to be a white supremacist, a sexist, an Islamophobe, a homophobe, a transphobe and a xenophobe.” – @LukeWaltham

Spit out the Kool-Aid and not expel hate for President Trump and this is the response.

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld noted about Kanye’s recent pro-free-thought tweets, “There’s nothing scarier to a leftist than a free thinker.” Kanye “challenged the mob,” added Gutfeld.

“Their goal is to stigmatize,” he said. “Smears always shut down debate.”

Jungle Book director, Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau has jumped into the mix to call for “ignoring Kanye”:

“Stop giving Kanye the attention he’s desperate for. Last time we did that, some huge asshole become president.” – @jonfavs

Kanye’s tweets:

“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

President Trump responded by writing: “Thank you Kanye, very cool!”

Kanye also tweeted a photo of himself wearing a Make America Great Again hat that was signed by Trump.

Kanye then tweeted a photo of himself on a poster that said, “Keep America Great. #KANYE2024.” The term “Keep America Great” is the campaign slogan for Trump’s 2020 campaign.

Molly Roberts, an editor for the Washington Post’s opinion section, published an article titled, “Kanye West, alt-right darling,” addressing rapper Kanye West’s recent tweets.

“It’s easy to cast West as just another lost man seduced by the far right’s promise to provide a sense of purpose. All that pseudo-philosophy does suggest a preoccupation with the sort of existential problems figures such as psychologist Jordan Peterson, who has become a surprise lifestyle guru, claim they can solve. It’s also possible to connect West’s eccentric behavior on Twitter — this isn’t the first time his forays into politics have discomfited some fans — to the mental-health struggles that led to his 2017 hospitalization.”
