Kirsters Baish| Ever since he took office, President Trump’s Twitter posts have been the topic of conversations all around the country, but iconic rapper Kanye West may have just taken the title of most watched Twitter account after recent tweets in which he has defended President Trump and slammed former President Barack Obama.
As we’ve previously reported, Kanye seems to be fed up with the leftist narrative that all black Americans have to be Democrats. He has expressed that he is a free thinker who will not succumb to the pressures of the media, and he has also expressed his support for Trump. Kanye has also explained why he feels that Obama was not a worthy leader.
Chicago almost seems to have gotten worse during the years that Obama was in office, but the media continues to ignore this.
Kanye’s tweets put him in hot water with the liberals of America, and they have now labeled him as mentally unstable… due to a political opinion. So, what we have learned from Kanye’s recent revelation is that when the left doesn’t agree with an opinion, they have the right to label anyone with that opinion as “mentally unstable.”
Conservative Tribune reports:
In a series of tweets on Thursday that have since been deleted, another prominent Trump supporter who’s received flak — Roseanne Barr — stood by the rapper’s characterization of the Windy City.
“(Kanye) is telling the truth about (Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s) Chicago,” the sitcom star wrote, according to Breitbart.
“Ppl (sic) do not want to hear the truth-that Chicago could be a better city for its citizens, but the establishment is corrupted.”
In a follow-up tweet, she added, “Let’s do something about #Chicago — all of us… instead of hurling insults and division.
“Let’s try efficient government and unity JUST THIS ONCE!”
It is extremely unlikely that this will happen, obviously. As long as Mayor Emanuel is in charge things won’t be changing. The former Chief of Staff for Barack Obama has overseen Chicago’s plummet into the depths of crime, despite enforcing some of the country’s strictest gun laws.
A 2017 study showed that 20 percent of the spike in America’s violent crime rate can be traced directly back to Chicago. Ten percent of these violent crime can be traced to just five neighborhoods in Chicago. The numbers speak for themselves.
A law professor at Fordham University in New York City, John Pfaff, explained at the time the study was released, “Crime is incredibly geographically concentrated … which suggests that any sort of take on what’s causing this has to take an incredibly nuanced look because it’s not just what makes Chicago different from New York City, it’s what makes one neighborhood in Chicago different from other neighborhoods.”
It’s really not much of a surprise that violent crime in concentrated in Chicago. While Obama was in office, Chicago saw a huge spike in crime… despite the supposed “renaissance” for blacks in America at the time. The Chicago Tribune reported that the city also dropped from seventh to 21st in terms of percentage of black households earning more than $100,000 a year.
Chicago is located in Cook County, which interestingly enough has the largest number of African American residents in the entire country. The left continues to praise Obama as a hero to the black community, but really, what has he done for African Americans?
Kanye and Roseanne just want the question answered once and for all. It doesn’t seem that the media is going to allow it, however.
