Palestine: Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expartriates – Press Statement (05.04.2023)
I write what I like.
“We’ve dealt with bigger problems than these stupidities” (…) “But, you know, the communists blame the Jews for being capitalists, the capitalists blame the Jews for being communists” (…) “You have a problem, blame the Jews. It’s old stuff. It shouldn’t have any place in civilised discourse” – Benjamin Netanyahu (Interview on Bill Maher’s HBO Show, 14.10.2022).
The recent Drink Champs Interview with Kanye Omari West aka Ye aka Yeezy has shown me that his a lost one. Certainly, his just showing his tropes, ignorance and lack of concern to his rhetoric in concern to the Jews. Just like speaking about them this wouldn’t be right to do about African-Americans or anyone else. It is just showing his character and how blissfully unaware he is.
In the end, it isn’t like Kanye needs me or my support. I used to listen his to music and bought several of his CDs. The last one of the trilogy was the Graduation. The three first LPs are mind-blowing and relevant to this day. That showed his craft together with the beats he produced for others like Jay-Z and The Game to mention a few. It isn’t like Kanye doesn’t have qualities and has delivered a proper body of work. Yes, he has and his a billionaire for a reason.
However, this isn’t about his musical abilities, his way of being able to monetize his fandom and create products like shoes or clothing-line. In those fields he has succeeded and been able to sell overpriced white-tees for that matter. That’s a “win” and he can be commended for that. Nevertheless, I will not sing for the choir.
The tweet that got him banned on Twitter was justified. He continued and pursuit it further on Drink Champs. The little snippets of the Tucker Carlson interview wasn’t making things better either. Both these interviews only shows how his using ancient conspiracies and rhetoric against the Jews. Therefore, his not making things better, but worse actually.
If you want to self-inflict wounds and later call yourself a victim, be my guest, but that’s a work of fool and not of a brilliant man. Neither was Ye or Kanye speaking of profound truths at the Drink Champs. His rambling and pinning the Jews onto everything. That’s not new in history or rhetoric, which we haven’t heard before. That’s why it was easy for the former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Kanye is actually becoming a “Clayton Bigsby” character of sorts. The mannerism and the way he speaks. He could just be the fictional character in real life. It is tragic that the character made by Dave Chappelle can be pinned on Kanye in 2022. However, this is where we are and obviously Kanye is a lost one.
He don’t need my support or any anything from me. His a billionaire and will live large for the rest of his life. The recent controversies will not matter to him in the long-run. He has had moments like in the past and later released new content. We should expect something similar in the future too. Nevertheless, it’s becoming tiring and there is no redeeming factors.
No doubt he will have supporters and people buying into the enigma called “Ye” but, the reality still remains, that he has lost a lot of fans and former listeners by his outbursts or problematic takes. That’s why his not so regarded is certain circles. I also have an issue when a person like him wants to enlighten people, when his proud of never reading books. If he wants a true deeper understanding of a topic or a historical fact. That’s the way to go and he should know better, but his ego is to big to do so. Peace.
