If we’re being blunt about it, (and by all means, it is time to be blunt about it), the liberal left has gone from an angsty subsect of America to a truly Fascist force for evil over the course of the still-young Trump Presidency.
I get it – this sounds like a bold and irrevocable statement – but it’s absolutely true. We are witnessing, in this modern era, a return to violence and anger among the democrats and their ilk. They no longer wish to hold civil, political discussions, (something that former President Barack Obama was truly gifted at, even if his opinions were a bit off). With Obama no longer sitting in the Oval Office, keeping his millennial minions in check, the left has gone bananas.
Not only are these immovable leftists entirely refusing to allow those of political opposition to even so much as speak, they are also venting their frustrations by literally shouting at the sky in large groups.
It’s complete lunacy, and while it may be somewhat entertaining, it’s teaching our nation’s youth a horrible lesson: You can’t say whatever you want.
To that I call B.S. You can say whatever you want. That is right there in the First Amendment. What you don’t get is immunity from your words. You have to sit there and take whatever is coming your way due to your opinion. You get to say it, but you are responsible for the reaction it receives.
The left would rather we eliminate any and all words that “hurt feelings” instead, hoping for a homogenous and sanitary existence in which differing opinions are treated like lepers or varmints.
Such is the case this week with Kanye West – arguably the world’s most successful modern rapper and unabashed supporter of President Donald Trump. When “Yeezy” went on a conservative tear via Twitter this week, a great many of his overtly liberal fans were outraged. Some of his friends, however came to his side, including hip hop artist Chance The Rapper, sending a message stating that African Americans “don’t have to be democrats”, which Kanye promptly tweeted.

Now, after the leftist court of public opinion rained hell down upon him, Chance is apologizing for his opinion.
“Anyone who knows me knows how passionate I am about my city and my loved ones,” Chance wrote. “Kanye West is not just a mentor or big brother to me. He’s my family.”
“I didn’t speak up because I agreed with what Kanye had to say or cause I f*** with Trump,” he wrote. “I did it because I wanted to help my friend and cause I felt like I was being used to attack him. Unfortunately, my attempt to support Kanye is being used to discredit my brothers and sisters in the movement and I can’t sit by and let that happen either. I’d never support someone who’d talk about Chicago as if it’s hell on earth and then take steps to make life harder for the disenfranchised among us.”
He doubled down on the fact that Democratic leaders in Chicago have not helped alleviate the violence and poverty that plagues many of its residents.
“My statement about black folk not having to be democrats (though true) was a deflection from the real conversation and stemmed from a personal issue with the fact that Chicago has had generations of democratic officials with no investment or regard for black schools, neighborhoods, or black lives.”
Now that is one well crafted, hate-dodging apology if I’ve ever seen one. I wonder how many interns at Chance’s management agency were responsible for putting this together?
