Kanye West: Republicans Freed the Slaves, Blacks Should Reject ‘Mental Slavery’

Kanye West has departed from the Democrat plantation.

Rapper Kanye West, in a fiery sermon delivered at a Sunday service over the weekend, argued against the “mental slavery” that is regularly perpetrated against black people who think for themselves.

West, who became a born-again Christian and pastor after rejecting the entertainment industry, also referenced the historical fact that it was the Republican Party under former President Abraham Lincoln who freed the slaves.

A portion of West’s sermon can be seen here:

West has undergone a political and spiritual transformation in recent months. He announced last week that he will only be making gospel music for now on, and his days of making secular music are done.

“Kanye started this, I think, just to heal himself,” his wife, Kim Kardashian explained on ABC’s The View. “It was a real personal thing, and it was just friends and family, and he has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ.”

West has teased the release of his next album, Jesus Is King for weeks now. He has a film to accompany the album that is set to debut in IMAX theaters nationwide on Oct. 25. The movie experience is billed to “bring Kanye West’s famed Sunday Service to life in the Roden Crater, visionary artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert.”

The famed rapper is expected to change his tone completely on his upcoming album, urging children to give up drugs and avoid the satanic trappings of the modern world.

In addition to his religious transformation, West has become President Donald Trump’s most note-worthy celebrity supporter. He even visited Trump in the White House to make a passionate, if sometimes incoherent, speech in the Oval Office last year.

West has presidential ambitions of his own, and refuses to rule out a run for the nation’s highest office in 2024 – perhaps as the GOP’s successor to Mr. Trump.

“If I decide to do it, it will be done,” West said of his presidential ambitions during an interview with Chicago’s Power 92 radio station in August.

“Trump ain’t f**king up the paper,” West added, demonstrating his support of “America First” economic policies. “Those jobs are up … I don’t know all the policies. I don’t agree with everything that any other man does, period.”

West, a man of the cloth who is an anti-establishment outsider, could be the leader needed to keep the Trump coalition united and formidable through 2024 and beyond.

Country Band that Changed Name from “Lady Antebellum” to “Lady A” Now Suing Black Artist That Originally Used Title

They changed their name because of supposed Confederate ties.

Published

A country music band that changed their name from ‘Lady Antebellum’ to ‘Lady A’ in the wake of the George Floyd race riots is now suing the singer who originally used the title, who is black.

The band had announced it’d change its name in the wake of criticism from liberals, who took offense at the word ‘Antebellum-‘ a phrase sometimes used in historical writings to describe the American South before the Civil War. The group instead opted to call itself “Lady A,” a name, as it turns out, was already in use by Seattle-area blues and folk singer Anita White.

The dispute between Lady Antebellum and White has been identified as a striking example of liberal hypocrisy and self-aggrandizement, with the band making a supposedly virtuous stance and sacrifice by changing their name, utterly ignoring that they were usurping on a musical name already used by a black artist.

In a new development highlighting the Nashville act’s bad faith, the band is now suing White, claiming that they’ve always had the name she’s used as a legal trademark and refusing any claim of monetary damages from the name change on the part of White.

Today we are sad to share that our sincere hope to join together with Anita White in unity and common purpose has ended,” the group said in a statement. “She and her team have demanded a $10 million payment, so reluctantly we have come to the conclusion that we need to ask a court to affirm our right to continue to use the name Lady A, a trademark we have held for many years.

If Lady Antebellum proves successful in getting the government to recognize their copyright claim to ‘Lady A,’ the artist that originally used the name will have no choice but to surrender it to the more commercially known and influential musical act.

Observers of the situation immediately slammed the country music group for its disrespect for the title’s existing user.
