Kanye doesn’t back down after rabid reaction to ‘slavery is a choice’ remark

Kanye West is now getting a full dose of what noted conservative personalities face on a regular basis now that he has broken free of the Democratic plantation.

The rapper is under fire for saying during a TMZ interview that “when you hear about slavery for 400 years… that sounds like a choice,” suggesting “we’re mentally in prison.”

West went on a long Twitter rant Monday evening, clarifying that he understands “slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will.”

And West made it clear that he has no intentions of shutting up, as some on the left want him to do.

“They cut out our tongues so we couldn’t communicate to each other. I will not allow my tongue to be cut,” he tweeted.

Pointing to what is known as Willie Lynch Syndrome, where a slaveholder purportedly talked about controlling the black slave population by pitting them against each other, West called out the media for the hysteria over his remarks.

“Kanye vs the media is modern day Willie Linch theory,” he tweeted.

Undermining the livelihood of those who make up the racial grievance industry is not taken lightly — especially from a Trump supporter. Nonetheless, West was not about to back down, explaining his “400 years” comment.

“[W]e are programmed to always talk and fight race issues,” he tweeted. “We need to update our conversation.”

Staying consistent in his message on free thought, the rapper talked about breaking free from mental imprisonment, saying it was”just an idea.”

“[T]he reason why I brought up the 400 years point is because we can’t be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years. We need free thought now. Even the statement was an example of free thought. It was just an idea.”

He then said he was being attacked again “for presenting new ideas,” before noting the success of former NBA superstar Magic Johnson to say looking to the future is a better alternative than always being focused on the past.

“[O]nce again I am being attacked for presenting new ideas,” West tweeted.

Of course, the overriding fear on the left is that West’s message will resonate with black Americans, who may come to realize the Democratic Party is not looking out for their best interests.

The reaction on Twitter — aside from the rabid attacks — suggests they have good reason to be fearful.
