Ladies and gentlemen, one thing has become terribly obvious in 2019: The mainstream media is tearing us apart.
It isn’t as though this is an accident either…that’s the most disturbing part. You see, when the infotainment industry convinces us to tear each other apart over the differing political opinions that we hold, they profit. Our conflict drives their ratings, and their ratings allow them to demand a greater sum from advertisers in the stable.
That means, every time that you argue on Facebook with someone outside of your political wheelhouse, you’re figuratively forking cash over to the media, albeit in a trickle-down sort of way.
And while Hollywood has long been in the pocket of the media machine, that hasn’t stopped a number of figures from lashing out, including Kanye West – a personal friend of President Donald Trump.
Rapper Kanye West blasted the media during his interview with David Letterman that aired on Netflix on Friday night, claiming Americans are “completely bullied” by the press to “think certain things.”
During the lengthy discussion on Letterman’s show — which is titled “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” — West also spoke about his bipolar personality disorder, describing his condition as akin to having a “strained brain,” adding, “We’re all dealing with mental health.”
West then took the conversation deeper.
“We’re pushed into it. We’re driven crazy,” West said. “We forget who we even are. We’re driven to like a certain type of career that we’re supposed to be. We’re, like, completely bullied by the media, both celebrities and the masses, to think certain things and have group thought.
“Like, ‘Oh yeah, damn right we’re going crazy’,” West continued. “I’m the most famous person with [bipolar personality disorder] and I’ve only experienced it for two years. What about people that’s been experiencing this since they were two?”
West’s unique visit to the White House early in President Trump’s first term led many to believe that the beloved rapper would become a fixture on Capitol Hill.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
