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?

I remember when the right were freaking out over Obama inviting Common to the White House – rappers were thugs.

Lance Humphries suggested that for President, " Kim Kardashian is more serious than ppl realize and would do a good job, but not sure if she has the temperament for it. "

Lance, In 2013 Canada had 6 female Premiers. While the uninformed said that this was a new trend, I predicted that they would all be gone by 2019, which will happen. Christie Clark is the only one that had the brains and ability for Politics, unfortunately she had no real men in her Party to back her up.

Please don’t scare us with the thought of a female President, as most of us havn’t got over the Hillary scare yet.

I dare any of these left media elitists to capture the presidents attention for 10 minutes. Hypocrites

Not surprised the media is attacking Kanye"s mental state, most people mistake smart for crazy these days. He probably has a very high IQ i would guess. James Brown was fantastic as usual, people should really listen to his wisdom.

Thanks for continuing to point out what the msm ignore. I washed my hands of the CBC long ago… if I could only do the same to the CBC with my taxes.

- A book/movie I’d highly recommend on the subject of the evolution of the Democrat plantations is “Death of a Nation” by Dinesh D’Souza. The Democrats (left) needs to keep people divided into their groups (defined by identity politics). They need to keep them fearful & dependent & feeling that they can’t survive without the Democrat party to take care of them. This is why the left is acting even more unhinged than we’ve become accustomed to seeing lately. Now the mainstream media are bringing out the modern equivalent of the plantation Black overseers.

- Manmade global cooling/warming/climate change has been a scam from day one. What I believe we’re seeing from the Republican party lately is what I’m calling the Kavanaugh effect. Lindsey Graham stood up to Democrat Senators & boosted his status by a huge amount. Now we’re seeing lots of Republicans refusing to play the Democrat’s game. This will turn into a red wave in the upcoming midterms. If only this would rub off on Canadian conservative politicians.

As for Kayne West… The inmates running the asylum isn’t so bad after all.
Just enjoy the freedom ride everybody.

Space Moose- TERRENCE WILLIAMS ALL THE WAY! And Yay Morano!!

Kanye West sounds like he would make a good politician, perhaps someone who could carry on when President Trump retires.
Perhaps now I will be on the Democrats hit list for even suggesting that.

Kanye West is certainly eccentric, sometimes erratic, maybe even, as he himself put it in the Oval Office, “crazy.” I for one am not about to take Don Lemon’s word for that.
Kanye grabbed my attention a few months ago when he said of Candace Owens, “I like the way she thinks.” Yes indeed, many of us do. And since then he has come out consistently as a supporter of free speech, free thought, and free expression. And most importantly, he seems to understand that this includes the freedom to agree to disagree in a respectful, civil manner.

From my point of view, that last part makes him one of the least crazy people in the news today.

As for plastic pollution, the fact that Asian and African lands are the ones responsible for junk in the ocean tells me the virtue signallers are full of it. After all, any grad 3 student knows that plants need CO2 to grow. Imagine how green the world would be with more carbon dioxide for plants to use.

The “ Climate Change “ theory is just a scam by globalists and the UN to steal money to further their agenda . Nothing more , nothing less ! And if you believe that crap I have some Grade A swampland to sell you ! LMAO

I’m glad Kanye West isn’t a robot, trotting out the usual Devilcrat talking points. The man has a brain and he knows how to use it. Kanye also is saying things many folks of all colours wish they could say. Let’s hope he starts a revolution against the leftist plantation owners.

Oh no, Kanye West and Jim Brown have escaped the Democrat welfare plantation! Quick, release the hounds! (Cue Hillary, Joy Behar, Maxine Waters and Rachel Maddow)

I believe there is a warming trend ,but, taxation is not the problem solver here. Planting 10 to 15 million trees a year is the answer .Currently the world plants only 5 to 7 million a year. And theworld cuts down 10 million a year

I would love to see Diamond and Silk return to the rebel to do another interview with Ezra.
