How the Liberal media reacts to popular black man supporting Donald Trump

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

 

In the United States, black voters vote Democrat.

In 1980, even the great, gentle, amiable Ronald Reagan, only got 11 per cent of the black vote. In 1984 — a year when Reagan won 49 states — his share of the black vote actually fell to 9 per cent.

Republicans never exceeded 12 per cent of the black vote, and in 2008, when Barack Obama ran, he got 95 per cent.

Blacks are about 12 per cent of the U.S. population so locking up 90-plus per cent of that before the campaign even starts — that’s a strong advantage when things are so close.

Even better, that vote is concentrated in cities like Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit. It’s a big reason why states like Pennsylvania and Michigan and Illinois are considered locks for the Democrats — though Trump managed to squeak through in those this time.

So what would happen if that Republican vote amongst blacks went up a bit — say, to 20 per cent or maybe even 30 or 40?

Well, we shouldn’t get carried away but let’s say it was no longer considered a sure thing for the Democrats? That could shave off a few percentages in the total vote and then, a lot of states that are close just wouldn’t be close anymore.

There have always been black conservatives, and not just 150 years ago, when it was the Republicans, the Party of Lincoln, who freed the slaves, while Democrats were the party of slavery and the KKK. I’m talking about Clarence Thomas and Thomas Sowell, scholars and intellectual stars, but not popular culture stars.

The stars — the leaders of the black community in recent years — are often celebrities in the field of entertainment and sports.

Frankly, black conservatives can come across as the square cousin in that old sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-air, nerdy, almost white in style and manner, compared to the hip Will Smith, who was cool.

Democrats own the cool space, don’t they?

Enter Kanye West, an incredibly successful music star, rapper, visionary.

Kanye is as big as it gets in urban culture, and he happens to be married to a celebrity model, Kim Kardashian, who actually has more followers on Twitter than Donald Trump himself.

Kanye has met with Trump before and has posted selfies wearing a Make America Great Again hat, and that caused a big freak-out on the left.

He was going rogue, and the left didn’t like it.

And would you look at that! An opinion poll, published in USA Today, showing that Trump’s approval amongst blacks was at 36 per cent!

That’s destruction to the Democrats in several states. And it’s a sign that maybe some other blacks feel that it’s OK to publicly identify as Republican — or at least for Trump, if not the party of Lincoln.

Maybe they think the last 50 years of urban leftist policy — welfare, crime, affirmative action — hasn’t actually worked. And maybe the president who is obsessed with job creation is actually better for Blacks than Democrats who take them for granted?

And so Kanye West went to the White House yesterday, the same way his wife did a few months ago. And Trump invited in the cameras, and Kanye said some things that terrified the black democrats, and the white democrats who would seek to control them, and the left’s media allies.

The Democrats are really worried. And they’re going to do crazy things to stop this, like they did with Kavanaugh. But bullying hasn’t worked on Kanye so far.

It will be interesting, won’t it?

Spending part each year in South Korea I can attest to the plastic problems that exist here. Like many countries, the plastics and recyclables were all sent to China, that is until earlier this year when China said, ‘send your trash elsewhere my friends". We can’t imagine our lives without the convenience of plastic but what to do with it is a major problem particularly in small countries with large populations. English articles on the topic are limited here but here is a couple of articles in an English language newspaper. But I agree, you will not solve this problem with virtue signalling metal straws. It requires real government action because there are only so many places to keep dumping that trash. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/cnainsider/south-korea-plastic-waste-crisis-reducing-recycling-china-10805292

Nicholas Conklin on the previous comment they do not work. I read them now and it changes nothing that i said, those l;inks are about reasonable criticism, no one is freaking out. The MSM is acting like ignorant tyrants. And Kanye has never threatened to shoot cops or light the President on fire. Your peers are just mad that a black man is not on their plantation.

You should check out some of Kanye’s lyrics, including some of what he has said about cops. It’s absolute hypocrisy, but look who I am talking to – a guy with MAGA in his name and who would want to hug Trump like Kanye did.

As the video Ron Fuller created (and Tammie posted again) shows, the left is all about hatred, tyranny, control, speech censorship, and riots while lying and blaming the Right for their actions. The best thing to do is walk away from them.

The one thing his video did not emphasis is that the left/socialist main stream media is the biggest source of this hatred and speech censorship.

The main stream media are the ones in the biggest single position of power to control the socialist narrative, but they are slowly losing that power due to the Internet.

You just cannot trust the main stream media to tell the truth.

Nicholas Conklin none of those links work halfwit. And reasonably criticizing Obama for having a rapper who calls for cop killings is not freaking out. Keep swinging for the fence champ. LMAO!

Local radio DJ’s.. in Canada still full on Trump Derangement…making fun of West being in the White House …making fun of the “First Lady” comment of her being “one of the most bullied person on social media” The scumbags don’t even call her the First Lady! They start to bash President Trump with the usual…liberalist globalist programming words..I’m not even going to repeat them..we all know them.

Alberta,

You never know what you are talking about.

Fox News was critical of the invite, calling him a “vile rapper,” even though they’d previously praised him https://www.rollingstone.com/music/m…invite-189523/

Sarah Palin was critical via Twitter http://twitter.com/#!/SarahPalinUSA/…60375449772032

Pallister dropping the carbon tax is the only thing he did right as the premier of Manitoba.

Nicholas Conklin you seem to remember things that never happened when you project your left wing hatred toward others.

Nicholas said,“Obama inviting Common to the White House”
I think you may be mixed up between Common Folk and TERRORISTS called Black Lives Matter.
