Ye, a highly successful music and fashion artist formerly known as Kanye West, appears to be running for president for a second time. He introduced “leaf 24The campaign appears to have been first run and shaped by alt-right firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos, and shortly thereafter fascists Internet celebrity and political commentator Nick Fuentes.
this nascent movement news Entered last week by apparently fooling former President Donald Trump poor optics choice Dinner with Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago forbidden character (at least formerly a huge Trump supporter) public statement Full of racism, anti-semitismand an open wish impose his political will and Violenceunder the guise of Christian nationalism.
Ye claimed that at the meeting, he asked Trump to be his running buddy.Yeh says Trump is impressed with fuentes, in a now-deleted video of the tweet, Trump “didn’t know who Nick was” before Ye took him to dinner. Trump also insisted in the Truth Social post that he did not know Fuentes. Ye did not appear to come out of the meeting intact, his former admiration for Trump.
It’s not clear if Yeh in 2024 intends to run independently like he did in 2020 (when he ran in 2020 12 states and got a slight Less than 68,000 votes) or the Republican nomination. In a since-deleted tweet this past week, Ye mentioned Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who was considered a possibility in the 2024 Republican Party, as his opponent.Standalone would be easier path To Ye is actually on the ballot. If he doesn’t bother to start a whole third-party agency, independent presidential election qualifications are within the reach of someone with Ye’s wealth and head start (with half a competent staff).
Ye, Yiannopoulos and Fuentes miscarry at Tim Pool show popular podcasts Last night previewed the public image of the Ye24 movement. Yeh and his team chose to make their animosity toward the Jews their only apparent concern or policy position. Yeh wants people to think that both former presidents Barack Obama and Trump trust Jewish advisers (Ram Emanuel and Jared Kushner) and seem to believe that Jews have a common conspiracy to harm him.
Ye mentioned his displeasure with his former trainer Harry Pasternak, who Ye claimed sent him a text threatened to drug him and contain him again (implying threats to ruin his relationship with the child) after Ye started his current wave of public hostility towards Jews. (Ye is with Pasternak When he was first subjected to mandatory psychiatric treatment in 2016, Yeh complained that the drugs prescribed to him by Jewish doctors were not good for him. ) past work with Canada Ministry of Defensein his view, Pasternak is likely to be Ye’s intelligence officer “handler” and part of Ye’s unknown evil control force, which is Ye’s belief.
Since Ye tweeted his now-deleted “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE” in October, he has been dumped by business associates, including adidasYeh hinted on Poole’s podcast that just yesterday he learned he was in some kind of tax debt that he feared would land him in jail;
While Yeh’s previous political advisers were Candice Owens of Turning Point America and the “Brexit” campaign encouraged Democrats to support the black diaspora, Yeh explained on Poole’s podcast when they sympathized with them as a highly “cancelled” public the status of the character. Yiannopoulos then linked him to Fuentes, whom Yiannopoulos called on Poole’s podcast “the most brilliant political commentator of his generation.”
When Pool tried to fight against smearing every follower of a certain religion as allegedly evil because Ye felt he was being treated unfairly by certain music, fashion and banking executives who were Jewish, Ye stepped out and his The team quickly left.
Ye was in the first wave of political controversy in the Trump era, when he was a fanatical MAGA Trump supporter, only specific policies He seems to have been advocating something to do with criminal justice reform, making life easier for prisoners, ending the involuntary servitude associated with modern incarceration, and the return of industrial production to American cities. These positions fit perfectly into the practice of Trumpism—and both fit well into standard modern progressive/democratic platforms.A movement based on complaining about Jews and allying with openly promoting Jews violent overthrow A government that imposes right-wing Christian values and excludes or reduces the legal rights of non-white male Christians may reduce intersectional appeal.
When Yeh actually runs for president in 2020, after a brief public shift to make his music and public persona more explicitly a Christian/Gospel message, he will Anterior Center Miscarriages Are a Problem, but even so, he does not advocate outlawing, but provides public financial support for women to encourage them to choose to have children.He also said he was helping Trump with the express intention of stealing votes from Joe Biden, and proposed a a mishmash of policies These include (through unspecified means) reduction of household and student debt, “fair trade,” wider educational options including careers, and more faith-based local support.
“Ye24” has not laid out any specific plans in its policies or intentions, other than that it is reasonable to guess what he has chosen to publicly align with Yiannopoulos and Fuentes. The mix might best be described as Christian-fascism: an alleged dedication to pushing the limits of Christian belief and public policy, and a malign hostility toward non-white Christians. (Yes, Yeh is black. But unless he explains what he does and doesn’t do, like his new advisor and travel buddy Fuentes, the policy implication of his alliance with him seems to be that he agrees with Fuentes Fuentes’ message has been promoted for years. In a now-deleted tweet the other day, Ye wrote/joked? Fuentes was writing his tweet.)
At this point in his campaign, Ye seems to believe that God and Jesus are motivating him as a candidate. The only specific point is to remind the world that he feels all kinds of Jews have hurt him, and it is very important that he reminds the world that Those people are Jewish. It’s unlikely to prove to be a winning message in the election, though Yiannopoulos on the Pool podcast seemed convinced it was a message most Americans were waiting to hear, explaining that Ye is one “everyone wants to know.” The “dam broke” of the problem, i.e. why people can’t openly blame the Jews for most of the world’s troubles, or at least Ye’s troubles, rather than people wanting nothing to do with you. (Our culture Taboos have developed on the expression of certain general condemnations of certain types of people, such as blacks and Jews, based on the fact that these beliefs have led to some of the largest and most horrific crimes in history in living memory. Crime, genocide, slavery, and none of the people he talked to asked Ye to think about widespread oppression in public.)
As a musician and fashion mogul, Yeh seems smarter and smarter about how to find high-quality people to work with than he is about politics. It goes without saying that it is disheartening to see the greatest pop artist of the century become a bottom-line fascist presidential candidate, but his example may help the modern Republican right more clearly decide where they stand, or At least in the direction of white nationalist fascism in how far American voters are prepared to go.
