Between Kanye West’s anti-Semitic tirades and his unapologetic use of insults in recent weeks, even his fans are struggling to defend him.
Many of your tired excuses are still falling apart. But Ye himself is not slowing down.
On Friday, he opened up about his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
He is threatening to “protect” her for life. This unhealthy fixation has not disappeared.
Kanye West continues to say whatever comes to mind in morgan piers uncensored. Truly living up to that sinister title.
During an interview that aired on October 21, he essentially promised never to leave his ex-wife alone.
“I may be divorced on paper,” Kanye began.
“But,” Kanye continued, “I’m not divorced from the idea of being the protector.”
Then he reflected: “His name is no longer West. And my name is now just Ye.”
He then asked, “If we ever got back together, what would our name be? Kimye? always it was …
Apparently unaware that toxic exes have been saying this kind of thing for generations, he continued.
“I will love her for life,” Kanye continued.
“And strange as it may seem,” he commented, “I will protect her.”
More than a year after Kim finally filed for divorce, he still seems unwilling to let go.
And Kanye also seems to be bitter about the way the public, with the exception of far-right hustlers, talk about him.
From his use of the racist slogan “white lives matter” to his public complaints during the divorce, Ye is resented by the narratives he cultivates.
Many people have expressed alarm at Ye’s remarks, particularly his anti-Semitic tirades.
Intolerance is always bad. And fanaticism against the Jewish community has a long and deadly history.
But it is particularly alarming when a man as influential and famous as Kanye uses his platform to smear an entire minority.
Of course, Kanye has interpreted the backlash and natural fallout from his career as further sabotage by his imaginary enemies.
Now, it may seem that Ye’s fixation with his ex-wife is unrelated to his bigoted outbursts and fondness for reactionary figures.
But Living room in fact, he recently did an amazing article about how Kanye is part of a huge pipeline from misogyny to fascist.
Simply put, if you find someone who is resentful or openly hates a group of people, it’s easy to convince them to hate others.
This does not always start with overt fanaticism. It often starts with frustrated teenagers. Unhappy and struggling to find their place, they end up being radicalized online.
That’s not Kanye’s story. He is rich and famous. But the core concept is sadly similar. Kanye is obsessed with his ex in the worst ways.
