Well, the rapper-turned-Christian-turned-politician isn’t wrong about everything. Sure, appearing at Osteen’s smiley prosperity cult was a disheartening judgment call for the new believer. And asking a Satanist to collaborate with him on his latest gospel album was an odd decision (if understatements are permissible here).
Okay, okay. We’re beating around the bush to say Kanye may not be the best source to quote on what is and is not orthodox Christianity. But his hot-take on Planned Parenthood is off-the-chain (that’s rapper-talk for pretty good).
In an interview with Forbes Magazine published today, Mr. Kardashian-West said a few things that weren’t awful. These include, “To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy.”
And his comments on Planned Parenthood are spot-on. Kanye said…
“Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work
Kanye also had some other points in the article that make slightly less sense. He claims his running mate is a female pastor and “Biblical life coach” from Cody, Wyoming. He says vaccines are the Mark of the Beast. He says he won’t have policies as president, but “designs.” He wore the MAGA hat because he likes Trump hotels (they have saxophones in the lobby). He won’t say he’s the best human because some people have alien-like super-powers. And last but not least, he’s going to model his cabinet after the leadership structure in Wakanda, the fictional home in the Marvel Universe belonging to Black Panther.
We kid you not. It’s in the interview here.
But hey, what he said about Planned Parenthood is accurate, at least.
