Default Democrats' worst nightmare about Kanye West just came true

Democrats' worst nightmare about Kanye West just came true
By Monica Showalter

It's happening. Suddenly, a lot of young black men aren't all in for the Democrats anymore.

Black men's approval for Donald Trump has absolutely doubled, according to a new Reuters poll, and his overall support among blacks has risen sharply. This seismic shift just happens to coincide with rap superstar Kanye West's break with the Hollywood left, coupled with his open admiration for Donald Trump. According to the Daily Caller:


Quote:
A poll taken on April 22, 2018 had Trump's approval rating among black men at 11 percent, while the same poll on April 29, 2018 pegged the approval rating at 22 percent. It should be noted that Reuters only sampled slightly under 200 black males each week and slightly under 3,000 people overall.

Trump experienced a similar jump in approval among black people overall, spiking from 8.9 percent on April 22 to 16.5 percent on April 29.
Kanye made his remarks on April 25, and much of the left panicked, calling him a sell-out, a traitor to his race, and other typical epithets black people who don't toe the Democratic Party line have endured for years. Kanye responded by doubling down, posting a picture of himself with an autographed MAGA cap, and calling Trump his "brother."

What this poll represents is Democrats' worst nightmare coming true. Their black voting base, which has been taken for granted for years, is suddenly in play, and in a year when Democrats have assured themselves that they have the retaking of Congress in the bag. Black turnout is what put Barack Obama in office in 2008, and now even black support is no longer a given for them.

It's probably not Kanye alone who is responsible for this, given the stunningly improved state of the Trump economy, where black unemployment has dropped to historic lows. But Kanye was probably the activator. Black people can see that their job prospects are the best in history; they can see the bigger paychecks; they can relate to Kanye's recent remarks that Barack Obama did zilch for the black community in his hometown of Chicgo; and suddenly, Kanye's break makes sense to them, just as it does to an extreme individualist like Kanye. It all falls into place.

The shift in black opinion represents a major break in the cultural firewall that has kept black people from embracing the Republican Party and left them taken for granted by Democrats. Do Democrats pay any attention to widespread black views on gay marriage or transgenderism, for example? Do they pay any attention to whether black teenagers need jobs and how calls for minimum wage hikes shut them out of the market? Do Democrats pay any attention to how gun-free zones facilitate violence in black neighborhoods in places such as Chicago? Do they pay any attention to how illegal immigration has driven down the wages of black unskilled workers? Not in the least: The only thing they ask themselves is where else black people can go and well, now they have their answer, because Kanye opened that door.

Kanye's own bad experiences with self-centered, rude Democrats such as President Obama, as well as his pleasant experiences with President Trump, probably had much to do with his own epiphany, as did his concern about the sufferings of black people by violence in Chicago. But it wasn't just a loud endorsement of President Trump that went on with his series of tweets. He not only broke the barrier to blacks supporting Republicans, but did two other things to change perceptions. He made a massive series of tweets about the importance of "love" and how he is centering his life on "love" (and talking like that takes a lot of courage), and he tweeted a lot about thinking freely. Both of these things went a long way to breaking the perception among blacks and others that Republicans are hateful and that Republicans are narrow-minded. If it's all about love, why shun the Republicans?

Kanye's one of us. And he's bringing the party with him.

Hope it continues, I bet that they are seeing a bigger paycheck and have figured out that it was NOT the democrats who caused that and that Donald Trump was the person who caused that to happen and then Nancy Pelosi starts with her crumbs statement and then she says that when the democrats win back the congress they will reverse the tax breaks, it doesn’t take much to figure out who to get behind to keep the good times rolling.

That's basically what Alex Jones was just screaming on his shortwave radio program on WWCR.
First time I ever have heard his show.
Oh my!
He's a saucy one.

Oh yeah, he is a riggin" no doubt about that. Michael Savage is another one. A number of years ago I was on a project working second shift and I would listen to his show around midnight driving home. Along with a large coffee, he kept me awake.

Consider me a fan of Jones now lol
After I went to bed last night, I Googled Info Wars.
Therein found lots of videos.
The one where he goes after Piers Morgan on CNN interview over gun control/ 2nd amendment is quite entertaining!
Basically told him the 2nd came about because of a right to bear arms, not to be infringed, Not for duck hunting.
