Kanye West likens democratic hysteria to bullying, discrimination

The rapper sat down with David Letterman for a Trump-centric conversation.

Throughout the course of the last three years, conservative Americans have had a target on their back.

The rise of President Trump is certainly one factor in this new discrimination, as his polarizing presence has forever changed the political landscape of the nation.

Now, instead of civil discourse, we are increasingly alarmed by the sheer violence and vitriol of the American leftists.  Not only have they openly fantasized about the assassination of Donald Trump, (a la Kathy Griffin), but there have been legitimate and horrifying attempts to take the live of US conservatives.

Rapper Kanye West is keenly aware of these new political prejudices, having been on the receiving end of innumerable instances of hate for his own conservative thoughts.

West sat down with David Letterman to discuss this.

“This is like my thing with Trump—we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” Kanye West said during an appearance on Letterman’s Netflix talk show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, according to The Daily Beast

“So if I see a person that I admire talking about Donald Trump can think whatever he does,” Letterman says at one point. “I wonder if those thoughts, indirectly, aren’t hurting people who are already being hurt.”

West goes on to argue that Trump supporters are “treated like enemies of America because that’s what they felt.”

West continued.

“Have you ever been beaten up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?” the Grammy-winner contended. “Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!”

Trump and Kanye made headlines last year after the rapper visited the White House to talk policy with the President.
