WaPo Kicked Off ‘Mental Illness’ Narrative To Smear Based Kanye

The mainsream media is going with the narrative that Kanye West is mentally ill after he tweeted his support for conservative black commentator Candace Owens and shared videos from pro-Trump Dilbert creator Scott Adams.

But now the media is trying to say that Kanye is mentally ill or on drugs, similar to the way the media reported on Dave Chappelle when he went off the reservation and left his Comedy Central show.

West has been advocating on Twitter for freedom of thought, announcing that people are now waking up from their “mental prison” to be creative, in defiance of the “thought police.” His artistic awakening is bold, considering that he works in the mainstream record industry, and Trump supporters are very grateful for his refreshing honesty.

The relatively apolitical Page Six reported on “fears” for Kanye’s health: “Kanye West canceled 21 tour dates in 2016 after suffering a “nervous breakdown,” but there are new fears for his health after he abruptly fired manager Scooter Braun and a “friend” claimed West had been addicted to opioids. On Monday, Hot 97 host Ebro Darden told listeners that he had spoken with West this weekend, and West allegedly told him, “Nobody really showed love for me when I was addicted to opioids and in the hospital.'”

Where did this mental illness narrative start? In the Fake News Washington Post, of course, in Molly Robert’s hit piece on Kanye calling him an “alt-right darling”: “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.”

That piece Tuesday set the mainstream narrative, which is now strongly anti-Kanye.

Let us pray that our brother Kanye West is safe from the establishment as he explores his creativity and helps to expand our consciousness in real time.
