Opinion: Kanye is too far gone…

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.

Opinion: Trump is al-Sisi’s puppet…

It’s a very dangerous situation because Egypt is not going to be able to live that way. They’ll end up blowing up the dam. And I said it and I say it loud and clear — they’ll blow up that dam. And they have to do something, they should have stopped it long before it started”Donald J. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office with leaders of Sudan and Israel on speakerphone on Friday 23rd October 2020.

For some strange reason the United States President is like a whipped man in favour of Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi. All through the term of Trump he has praise the man. His so positive to the Egyptian leader, that its weird. He even called him favourite dictator at a G-7 Meeting during his term. That is the sort of man Trump is and who wants to be associated with.

Al-Sisi can get whatever he wants because of his favours with the US. That is why the US President is speaking favourable of Egypt and their power. Defending their rights without respecting the Ethiopian counterparts. It is like the President has his heart in Cairo and couldn’t careless about Addis Ababa. That is why he has suspended aid to Ethiopia too over the Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) negotiations.

Instead of getting all parties to negotiate and even find a middle ground. Where everyone is respected and talking about grievances. Trump wants to create war between nations over their rights of the river Nile. Where the President is initially showing his means and his support military behind Egypt.

I wouldn’t be shocked, if President Trump was neo-colonial mindset and wants the Ethiopian state to accept agreements made in colonial over the usage of river Nile. That doesn’t make sense and only would do so. Since, Trump needs al-Sisi as an ally to Nethanyahu and Israel. That is all to work for the interests of Israel, which is his major achievements in foreign affairs. If it wasn’t for that. It would be abysmal to say the least.

This is why his defending the Egyptian stance. That is why he even goes far over his mandate. Showing he has no interests to a bilateral or third-party. He could just be in bed and make out with al-Sisi. Because, he has no interest or understanding over the consequences for Ethiopia in this regard. That comes second or third for him. He rather amp up a phony war to be friendly with Cairo. Than actually talk of peace and negotiate the GERD dam and the shared water.

However, Egypt should remember that they have the United States backing them with Trump. Who knows what would happen if Biden gets into office. There might not be as shared interests or the same support. The ones in Cairo better believe there is uncertain tomorrow. What Trump did is showing blind loyalty and not considering the implications of what he did. Just like he always does and hoping someone in his team bails him out.

The Ethiopian came with a honourable stance and press release after the Trump remarks reached Addis. They are righteous in their claim. The US cannot been seen a third-party. When they are embedded with the Egyptians. It doesn’t matter what the Sudanese or Ethiopians would say. It is only the Egyptians that matters to Trump. That is clearly his politicking in this matter.

It is now proven that Trump is in the pocket of al-Sisi and their needs. That because he needs to a cordial friendship. Since that is important to his allies in Israel. This is why he ditches and disrespects the Ethiopians. That shows how lack of senses does to you and also what sort of man Trump is.

The man clearly doesn’t have any care or understanding of the matter. Only acting like a fool and hoping his allies wins. This is the sort of diplomatic dispute get taken out of proportions and doesn’t get settled. However, at this point. The US better step out the negotiation table and get another supposed “third party” in. Since, the US is the puppet of Cairo. Peace.
