Conservatives apparently love Kanye West now.
It all started when the rapper/producer tweeted that he loves “the way Candace Owens thinks.” Owens is a conservative pundit who has criticized Black Lives Matter activists for having a “victim mentality.”
West sent his tweet praising Owens shortly after a clip came out of her stating “an ideological civil war” is happening in the Black community, and has continued to retweet conservative voices since.
He also met with Trump shortly after the 2016 election and gave a speech at a concert saying he would have voted for him. Now, he’s seemingly owning his new image and even tweeted about working on beats from “the sunken place.”
Some conservatives have been psyched about his thinking like conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who tweeted, “@kanyewest I admire your bold moves against the thought police. And if you want to see these control-freak vampires really go crazy, please join me on my broadcast.”
Bill O’Reilly also tweeted that “Kanye West finds himself under stack by the American Stalinists.”
However, Kanye has also supported progressive causes recently. He attended a March for Our Lives rally in March, so it seems like he just likes to keep everyone guessing and get a reaction.
