Hip-hop artist Kanye West got a barrage of criticism for bucking the lockstep league that requires all blacks to be Democrats who hate Trump, but not even the left’s most potent weapon (a public taunting by Stephen Colbert) could force him back into line. Instead, he doubled down on defending his right to think independently, and Chance the Rapper joined in support, leading to a “Bet You’d Never See This” headline:
Other African-Americans in the public eye are starting to notice and speak up about the huge gap between the Democrats’ promises to the black community and the results they’ve delivered. They’re also noticing that under Obama, things got worse for them, while under the alleged evil racist Trump, black unemployment has dropped to the lowest level in decades.
As much fun as watching Kanye blow up the narrative is, the real show yesterday happened in Congress, where black Trump supporters and Internet stars Diamond & Silk (sisters Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson) testified on claims that Facebook censors conservatives. Proving that you don’t want to be the person who dares try to suppress them, they carved up Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson and served his rump to him on a platter. Johnson kept trying the tired tactic of condescendingly suggesting they were just pretending to hold their political beliefs because it makes them money (unlike countless Democrats over the years who’ve claimed to be selfless public servants while inexplicably becoming millionaires on a Congressman’s salary.) I won’t tell you their response because it’s just too much fun to read and watch it for yourself. You might want to pop some popcorn before clicking on this:
After Johnson had slunk away to worry about Guam capsizing or something, fellow Democrat Hakeem Jeffries became the next sacrificial lamb, attempting to suggest that the two were just paid shills of the Trump campaign. Unfortunately for him, his oppo research gremlins didn’t do their homework, and the sisters chewed him up and spit him out like bad bubblegum.
If you wonder why there’s such a desperate attempt to shame, browbeat, humiliate and slander any prominent African-Americans who dare to question the Democrats’ ironclad grip on the minority vote, from Kanye West to Dr. Ben Carson, consider this:
Because the Democrats have invested so heavily in identity politics, they can only win elections by piecing together enough interest groups to add up to over 50% of the vote. They are terrified that the over 90% of black voters who vote party-line Democrat might start questioning why they continue to support a party that went from defending slavery and presiding over Jim Crow laws to defending lousy inner city public schools and illegal immigration that harms blacks in low skill jobs while presiding over unsafe, gang-ridden cities and anti-Christian social policies. If even 20% or so of those black Democratic voters realize that calling Republicans “racists” doesn’t mean they are, and that black employment and household wealth and religious freedom are rising under Trump, and they start voting accordingly, then the Democrats’ much-vaunted “blue wave” will become a sewer drain.
