(National Sentinel)Â ‘Let’s Try Love’: During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night program Thursday, hip-hop star Kanye West discussed his support for POTUS Donald Trump as expressing whoÂ he really is and telling the audience that “love” is needed to “diffuse this nuclear bomb of hate” throughout the country.
In short,Â Kanye gets it.
As noted byÂ The Daily Wire:
On “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday, entertainment mogul Kanye West described his decision to openly express his support for Donald Trump, which he said required him to have the confidence to stand up against massive backlash from liberals, media, and the hip-hop community, who tried to promote the idea that all African-Americans must vote Democrat.
West said that after he was hospitalized, he came out lacking confidence and that it took about a year and half [sic] to finally muster the courage to openly express his opinion on Trump, knowing that the backlash would be overwhelming.
“As a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” West told Kimmel when the host asked about the entertainment mogul’s decision to support Trump.
“And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldnâ€™t say it out loud or my career would be over, Iâ€™d get kicked out of the black community â€” because blacks, weâ€™re supposed to have a monolithic thought â€¦ we can only be Democrats and all.â€
Endorsing POTUS Trump was not about politics, per se, Kanye said but it “represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt no matter what anyone said and saying you canâ€™t bully me â€” liberals canâ€™t bully me, news canâ€™t bully me, the hip-hop community, they canâ€™t bully me â€” because at that point if Iâ€™m not free to be me, Iâ€™m no longer me.”
He also dropped this truth bomb: Today’s Left-wing public education curriculum keeps everyone too focused on our country’s past societal sins like slavery.
“We get too caught up in the past and what everyoneâ€™s saying and what everyoneâ€™s tweeting. And sometimes you just have to be fearless enough to break the f**king simulation,” he said.
Then he challenged Kimmel and the audience to “try love” instead.
“When I see people just even … go at the president, itâ€™s like, why not try love?” he said.
“For one person to stand up against all odds and just hug somebody the way that Alice Johnson [whom Trump granted clemency] hugged her family when she got out of jail. That one by one by one, we can defuse this nuclear bomb of hate that weâ€™re in as a society by thinking of everyone as our family,” he added.
