Washington Post calls Kanye West an ‘alt-right darling’

Apparently, the folks at the far-left Washington Post think anyone whose political views are somewhere to the right of Josef Stalin is “alt-right.”  In a ridiculous op-ed at the paper, columnist Molly Roberts called Kanye West an “alt-right darling” after he signaled support for statements made by Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens, who shut down a Black Lives Matter protester saying she prefers blacks have a victor mentality instead of a victim mentality.

West responded:

That didn’t sit too well with Roberts, who wrote:

Kanye West was having a great weekend, until he wasn’t. One moment, the rapper-producer-entrepreneur was dispensing pearls of pseudo-philosophy on Twitter to the retweets of adoring observers. The next, many of those same admirers had turned to denouncing him instead. Oh, and he had become an alt-right darling. Whatever West is going through at the moment, the response to his Twitter spree reveals more about the people who have fled from him — and those who’ve flocked to him, too.

West’s fortunes reversed when he expressed his admiration on Saturday for red-pill YouTuber Candace Owens, an African American Donald Trump supporter known for, among other things, referring to Black Lives Matter protesters as “whiny toddlers, pretending to be oppressed for attention.”

“So how, exactly, is Kanye West ‘alt-right’?” Twitchy asked. “And how did his fortunes reverse, exactly? His fans are still fans; the only ones who seem butthurt are the handful of journalists writing about it.”

Good questions.

Her piece sparked a great deal of mockery on social media:

Yes, it does.

That’s pretty much it…

Actually, the left these days views anyone with a conservative view on anything as a Nazi.  Or a Russian.  Or a Russian Nazi.


Keep in mind this is the same paper that suggested anyone with a certain short haircut may be a white nationalist.


So what’s the goal?  One person suggested:





Sorry, but the far left has already gone crazy — they’re just getting more insane with each passing day.
