"He’s not the villain in this. I’ll write on Medium until I’m canceled.
Might be today, might be tomorrow. So here we go.
I initially wanted to compare Kanye West to Kurtz, the spellbinding, self-destructive madman from Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness.
Kurtz, who’s portrayed as Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now, sees the world, in part, for what it is: A savage place full of tragedy leading him to a narcissistic downward spiral where he destroys innocent lives — a twisted Machiavellian approach — and ultimately ends with him losing his mind.
Kanye West is not Kurtz. He’s not mad.
He’s on the edge; erratic and has no filter, sure, but he’s not the villain that I’m reading, watching, hearing, and being told to unquestioningly hate.
It’s low-hanging fruit. Tempting. But it takes no critical thought. It’s like putting up a black square on IG for a group that used 50% of its funds to invest in real estate and the stock market.
“People would rather exist inside the pain of a lie than deal with the harsh realities of the truth.” — Kanye West
I really wanted to get a full picture of Ye, the man formerly known as Kanye West; I didn’t want to hear what Ari Emanuel thought, what Addidas thought, what Fox, CNN, or whatever Andrew Schultz thought.
I wanted to go to the source watching his Daily Mail interview, Piers Morgan debate, Lex Fridman interview, and the now-banned Drink Champs conversation. If I hated this man, or wanted to cancel him afterward, it’s because I went to the source, not because of what some talking head on television said.
And I don’t hate him. Here’s what I came away with.
Kanye West Vs. Jewish People
What I will say after watching Lex Fridman’s talk with Ye — arguably the best — is that he groups the corporate media and Hollywood oligarchy as the “Jewish Media” because of overrepresentation, based on their 2.4% population size.
This is unfair and bigoted, you might say.
Though, and I think it’s important to point out, in 2008 the LA Times published an article titled “Who runs Hollywood? C’mon.”
You would think it was Kanye who wrote the op-ed, but it wasn’t, it was a Jewish guy. The author writes, “Jews totally run Hollywood…And as a proud Jew, I want America to know about our accomplishment.” All of this isn’t crazy, Hollywood was founded by Jewish people in 1887. They founded it after fleeing persecution on the East Coast and Thomas Edison’s own film company; although, there’s always been a ubiquitous and unfortunate rejection of Judaism in Hollywood films despite overrepresentation."
The media and the establishment is in panic. Banning this news and the person.
