Kenye West

Post by 5waldos » Thu Oct 11, 2018 6:40 pm

Anyone listen to him in the Oval Office? He’s mad- manic, pressured speech, occasionally delusional, grandiose, flight of ideas, decreased sleep. And Trump sitting there egging him on. Suggesting that West might make a successful run for President- after 2020 of course.

Felt like the days when people would visit the mad houses for an afternoon’s entertainment. Really sick. I almost felt sorry for the guy who’s mental illness was being used in this way.

It's like in ancient Rome when they made a horse the emperor.

The kid's boyfriend wears a MAGA hat. I expect to just go into troll-flow when I meet him.

Caligula was the emporor. The story is that he made his horse consul.
In fact he didn't.

Any other jokes of mine you feel like stepping on?

I told the kid to tell her boyfriend to buy a black MAGA hat. That way, he can wear it with a suit.

No, but the allusion is a good one. I keep waiting for Melania to tweet, "well, let them eat cake." I'm trying to locate a Jacobin hat for casual wear, no luck. Maybe one of you girls would knit me one?

She is far too busy tweeting about how she is the most bullied human in the world. I will give her that she refrained from claiming to be the most bullied person in history.

I bet it'll be a first for him.

You might also tell him that you hang out on the internets like the kids do. Show him your Twitter account. He'll be impressed.

A black conservative? Cue the crazy train.

The real reason the leftist media is freaking out about Kanye is the threat to the Dumbs he represents. Trump has a 28% approval rating among blacks; that's up 20% in two years. That's 8,000,000 people. That's potentially 4,000,000 votes changing from the Dumbs to the GOP since '16. It's freak the fuck out time.

All true, but to be fair, the motherfucker is kind of crazy.

That said, when the tards didn't know he was for Trump, he was hailed as a genius. Now Trump is calling him a genius, and nobody likes it.

He has, at times, openly spoken about his diagnosis. Today it became trouble sleeping. One of many worrisome comments. I have seen many many individuals with bipolar disorder in a manic state. You want to claim that mostly babbling wide eyed manic as one of your own- go for it. You are welcome to him,

But I will repeat that I find it really disgusting that he was brought in and made to look the fool.

maybe one adidas/Kanye shoe is a gazillion is made in the states. Kanye is lying out of his black asshole in pretending that they will soon be made in Chicago.

This was a meeting for lying liars, the dimwits who believe them, and combo of dimwitted lying liars who say these lying liars don't lie.

Are they trying to attract the black vote with Kanye West? I don't think it's going to work.

I remember telling some black women that I worked with that I had seen George Clinton the two nights in a row the previous weekend (I think it was at the Ritz/Studio 54 in Sept 1992), and they looked at me like I was totally crazy. George is known in the black community for being out of his mind tripped-out crazy, and I think it is the same with Kanye. People aren't going to be influenced by him, black or white.

My wife killed a long night with George Clinton and his 50-strong family. Like Scarface level coke and Bob Marley level pot. Lovely people, but yeah, basically burnt out at Gary Busey levels.

I voted for Al Sharpton for NYC mayor when James Brown endorsed him from the stage at Central Park and then they did the electro slide together.

Are you serious? Listen to Kanye, dropping the “F” bomb, showing pictures of a military jet, ranting and raving. He was exploited by Trump, and Trump approves him looking like a complete fool on international tv. I feel sorry for Kanye.

My friend got me back stage when they were playing at B.B. King's one night. It was funny because everyone had huge bags of weed, but no one had beer. As each member of the band came and went, they'd each say "anyone have a beer"? I saw George smoking something, it looked like a big crack blunt. He's clean and sober nowadays, though. A lot of the rap guys will sample P-Funk, but most people in the audience at his shows are white hippies because they are essentially a jam band. That night I saw them in 1992 was especially long, like four hours non-stop jamming, with two lead guitars the whole time, plus rhythm guitar on top of that.


Anyway, to bring it back to Kanye- I bet most black people are having the same reaction as Snoop is here

Well, you're close, that's a Phyrgian hat. I'm looking for a Pileus and it has to be tri-color. The Phyrgian is a much stylized version of it, the Pileus was the hat adopted by the freed slaves of Rome and was preferred by the early (poor) Jacobins. The stylized and ornamented Phyrgian (usually in red) was the expensive alternative chosen by the late comers to the revolution, who wore it in hopes of keeping their heads.

Old women used to bring their chairs out near the Guillotine and knit Pileus hats in between executions. I figured that might appeal to a few of the girls here on the stew.

You said John was a brilliant songwriter but terrible person. So, some people feel the same way about West.

I have no opinion of his music or even his politics, but he definitely seems crazy to me, saying slavery was a choice and some other things.

I don’t think West is a genius or a decent person (or not for that matter).

But I’m amused by worthy middle class whities telling the black guy to get in lane.

They knitted Phrygian caps (if indeed they wee initting hats and not baby booties or something). The pileus was made of felt, not knitted. Wikipedia:
In late Republican Rome, a soft felt cap called the pileus served as a symbol of freemen (i.e. non-slaves), and was symbolically given to slaves upon manumission, thereby granting them not only their personal liberty, but also libertas— freedom as citizens, with the right to vote (if male). . . ..

These Roman associations of the pileus with liberty and republicanism were carried forward to the 18th-century, when the pileus was confused with the Phrygian cap, with the Phrygian cap then becoming a symbol of those values.

The longest continuous stretch of Kanye's rant in the Oval Office:
MR. WEST: And really, the reason why they imprisoned him is because he started doing positive for the community. He started showing that he actually had power, that he wasn’t just one of a monolithic voice, but he could wrap people around.

So there’s theories that there’s infinite amounts of universe and there’s alternate universe. So it’s very important for me to get Hoover out, because in an alternate universe, I am him. And I have to go and get him free because he was doing positive inside of Chicago, just like how I’m moving back to Chicago and it’s not just about, you know, getting on stage and being an entertainer and having a monolithic voice that’s forced to be a specific party.

You know, people expect that if you’re black you have to be Democrat. I have a — I’ve had conversations that basically said that welfare is the reason why a lot of black people end up being Democrat. They say — you know, first of all, it’s a limited amount of jobs. So the fathers lose the jobs, and they say, “We’ll give you more money for having more kids in your home.” And then, we got rid of the mental health institutes in the ‘80s and the ‘90s, and the prison rates just shot up.

And now you have “Chiraq,” what people call “Chiraq” — which is actually — our murder rate is going down by 20 percent every year. I just talked to the superintendent; met with Michael Sacks; that’s Rahm’s right-hand man. So I think it’s the bravery that helps you beat this game called life.

You know, they tried to scare me to not wear this hat — my own friends. But this hat, it gives me — it gives me power, in a way. You know, my dad and my mom separated, so I didn’t have a lot of male energy in my home. And also, I’m married to a family that — (laughs) — you know, not a lot of male energy going on. It’s beautiful, though. But there’s times where, you know, there’s something about — you know, I love Hillary. I love everyone, right? But the campaign “I’m with her” just didn’t make me feel, as a guy, that didn’t get to see my dad all the time — like a guy that could play catch with his son. It was something about when I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman. You made a Superman. That was my — that’s my favorite superhero. And you made a Superman cape.

For me, also as a guy that looks up to you, looks up to Ralph Lauren, looks up to American industry guys — non-political, no bullshit — put the beep on it, however you want to do it, five seconds delay — and just goes in and gets it done.

Right now, you gave me the heart to go to Adidas. Because at Adidas, when I went in, in 2015, we were a $14-billion company losing $2 billion a year. Now we have a $38-billion market cap. It’s called the “Yeezy effect.”

And I went to Casper. We had a meeting in Chicago. And I said, “You have to bring manufacturing onshore.” And not even shore; into the core. It’s not about the border; it’s the core of Adidas. And Chicago is the core of Middle America. And we have to make Middle America strong.

So I had the balls — because I have enough balls to put on this hat. I mean, this Adidas thing made be a billionaire. And I could have lost $200 million walking away from that deal. But even with that, I knew it was more important for me to take the chance of walking away from that deal than to have no fathers in Chicago with no homes. And when we do have prison reformation, for no — because it’s habilitation, not rehabilitation, because they didn’t have the abilities in the first place. We never had anyone that taught us. They didn’t teach us. Exactly — we had no one that “taught” us. Right?

So it’s more important than any specific deal — anything — that we bring jobs into America, and that we provide a transition with mental health and the Amer-I-Can education curriculum that Jim has worked on. Larry Hoover also has a curriculum that he’s worked on. We have Montessori curriculums that we worked on. WeWork has a beautiful curriculum. The Waldorf establishment has a curriculum. We have meditation. There’s a lot of things affecting our mental health that makes us do crazy things that puts us back into that trap door called the 13th Amendment.

I did say “abolish” with the hat on. Because why would you keep something around that’s a trap door? If you’re building a floor — the Constitution is the base of our industry, right? Of our country, of our company. Would you build a trap door that if you mess up and you — accidentally something happens, you fall and you end up next to the Unabomber? You end up — you got to remove all that trap door out of the relationship.

The four gentlemen that wrote the 13th Amendment — and I think the way the universe works, it’s perfect. We don’t have 13 floors, do we? You know, so the four — the four gentlemen that wrote the 13th Amendment didn’t look like the people they were amending. Also at that point, it was illegal for blacks to read — or African Americans to read. And so that meant if you actually read the Amendment, you would get locked up and turned into a slave.

Again — so what I think is, we don’t need sentences; we need pardons. We need to talk to people. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I was connected with a neuropsychologist that works with the athletes in the NBA and the NFL. And he looked at my brain — it’s equal on three parts. I’m going to go ahead drop some bombs for you — 98 percentile IQ test. I had a 75 percentile of all human beings, but it was counting eight numbers backwards, (inaudible), so I’m going to work on that one. The other ones, 98 percent — Tesla, Freud.

So he said that I actually wasn’t bipolar; I had sleep deprivation, which could cause dementia 10 to 20 years from now, where I wouldn’t even remember my son’s name. So all this power that I got, and I’m taking my son to the Sox game and all that, I wouldn’t be able to remember his name from a misdiagnosage.

And what we need is, we can empower the pharmaceuticals and make more money. That’s one thing — I’ve never stepped into a situation where I didn’t make people more money. So we can empower pharmaceuticals, we can empower our industries, we can empower our factories. We can bring not only Adidas onshore, we can bring — Foxconn has set up a factory in, I think, Minnesota.
Got that?

No wonder he gets along with the guy who said this:
Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you're a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we're a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it's not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven't figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it's gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.

What Po means is that he thinks it would make Trump look bad, so he is not going to read it.

Trump’s you can kind of follow. West doesn’t make any sense.

You should. It’s a thing of beauty in its own way. Sometimes you have to laugh at this shit. It’s tragic 95% of the time, and then you read a transcript like that....

I will never understand how all this came about. And nor will anyone else.

Trump is the ultimate post-modern product. All style, no substance. Nothing matters, all norms sacrificed for subjectivity and self interest.

James Brown later regretted meeting Nixon. My favorite white house cynical misuse of black celebrities was Nancy Reagan sitting in Mr T's lap.

Of which Po is strangely silent. And he pitied the fool who would use drugs.

The Reagans had a vast range of artists at The White House, and they played there too. I don’t think the Trumps like music.
