Used to be a time when liberal musicians would just kiss a member of the same sex on national TV when pushing their new album, you'd think Kanye West would resort to such tactics too in light his recent rant in support of gays. But oh no, Madonna's promo stunt would be small fries for the "Smartest Man in Hip-Hop". What with a national tragedy going on here that has everyone in the world tuned in and a new album to promote, why not step up to the plate with a mindless, incoherent, untrue rant that will have the Blacks, white liberals and other Leftist minions crying your name out like your "Jesus":
Kanye West criticized United States President George W. Bush and the government’s reaction to Hurricane Katrina last night during “A Concert for Hurricane Relief” a live benefit concert that aired on NBC.
West had sharp words for President Bush and the government’s reaction to the disaster wrought in four states by Hurricane Katrina during the one-hour live special.
The show was aired live on NBC, MSNBC, CNBC and Pax and featured performances from Harry Connick Jr., Wynton Marsalis, Faith Hill, Aaron Neville and others.
West, who didn’t perform, was on the stage with comedian Mike Myers reading a script from the teleprompter when he deviated from the pre-written script.
“I hate the way they portray us in the media,” West said echoing comments that big media outlets are biased in how they present images of the hurricane victims.
“You see a black family, it says, ‘They're looting.’ You see a white family, it says, ‘They're looking for food.’
“It's been five days [waiting for federal help] because most of the people are black,” West said. “And even for me to complain about it, I would be a hypocrite because I've tried to turn away from the TV because it's too hard to watch.
“I've even been shopping before even giving a donation, so now I'm calling my business manager right now to see what is the biggest amount I can give…the way America is set up to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off, as slow as possible. I mean, the Red Cross is doing everything they can. We already realize a lot of people that could help are at war right now, fighting another way -- and they've given them permission to go down and shoot us!”
There was a tape delay, but the person in charge of censoring was only looking for profane words and didn’t know that West was not following his script.
Kanye West currently ranks as the #2 search on Technorati with "Katrina" being #1.
Yes, the guy may be an arrogant prick, but don't sleep on his repertoire.
Step aside Cindy Sheehan, the Left have crowned themselves a new King.
