Kanye West effectively burned any remaining bridges in a Thursday night interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News, just in case there were any after the rapper and black conservative pundit Candace Owens wore “White Lives Matter” shirts while attending a fashion show in Paris.
West claimed during the sit-down that his handlers and “so-called friends” warned him not to back Donald Trump and that donning a “Make America Great Again” hat could result in his murder.
He said that the depth of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s connections to the Clintons was unknown, and that the media and leftist organizations like Planned Parenthood were “demonic” and “want to murder us in every way they can.”
After wearing the “White Lives Matter” shirt on Monday, West—who earlier this year officially changed his name to Ye, one of his numerous rap nicknames—reignited controversy.
The purpose of the program, according to CBS News, was to advertise his YZY clothing line.
Since the beginning of his career, Kanye has created cultural waves, but it wasn’t until those waves swung to the right that the legacy media started harshly condemning West. This was especially true after West visited the Oval Office during the Trump administration and donned a MAGA hat.
The rapper is also unpopular with the group of people who think Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s hypervulgar “WAP” is the pinnacle of contemporary pop culture because of his rediscovered Christianity and acceptance of social conservatism.
However, Kanye said that Trump and the MAGA cap were to blame for the rupture between him and the “industrial deceit complex” that Carlson referred to.
“I think I started to really feel this need to express myself on another level when Trump was running for office and I liked him,” West added.
“And every single person in Hollywood — from my ex-wife to my mother-in-law to my manager at that time, to my so-called friends and handlers around me — told me that if I said I liked Trump that my career would be over, my life would be over.
“They said stuff like, people get killed for wearing a [MAGA] hat like that, they threatened my life,” he continued. “They basically said I would be killed for wearing the hat. I had someone call me last night and said, ‘Anybody wearing a White Lives Matter shirt is going to be green lit.’ And that means, beat them up if they wear it.
Not like West cared: “I’m like, green light me then. God builds warriors in a different way.”
In addition, West claimed that he was being approached by many liberal voices who wanted him to speak on their behalf.
But given that he said his ex-wife and her family were just a “cellphone away” from the Clintons, this shouldn’t have come as a surprise to Carlson.
The rapper claimed that he had been informed that his ex-wife and his ex-mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, had called a friend of his “because he had influence inside of the black community” and they wanted that person to speak out in support of COVID immunization.
“I don’t have an opinion on that. I just want to state that that’s a flat statement,” the rapper said. “But it was wild that I didn’t know how close my own wife was to the Clintons. I didn’t know. You know, I didn’t realize it at the time.”
“How close was she to the Clintons?”
“I mean, cellphone away. Or, like ‘tell Ye to say this’ away. Or, ‘go out and use your platform to push the vaccination’ away,” he added, noting that individuals close to him “attempted” to manipulate him.
The sonogram of a child in the womb that West was wearing around his neck, in case you missed it, is also sending the left another message they won’t like.
The rapper, according to The Daily Caller, accused everyone from Silicon Valley’s biggest social media companies to Planned Parenthood of murdering black people.
On the first point, he mentioned the example of Lizzo, a prominent musician who is skilled but noticeably overweight and who recently came under fire for trying to lose weight from activists who support fat acceptance on social media.
“Lizzo works with my trainer, a friend of mine, Harley Pasternak. When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, the bots — that’s a term for, people like, it’s like telemarketer callers, like on Instagram — they attack her for losing weight because the media wants to put out a perception that being overweight is the new goal when it’s actually unhealthy,” West said.
“Aside the fact whether it’s fashion en vogue, or if someone thinks it’s attractive, to each his own. It’s actually clinically unhealthy. For people to promote that, it’s demonic.”
“They want to kill us in any way they can,” Ye added. “Planned Parenthood was made by Margaret Sanger, a known [eugenicist], with the KKK and I believe that if we saw ourselves as — if we saw ourselves as a people and not a race, then we would treat our people better.”
