Kanye West follows pro-Trump SNL speech with a tweet that set off an even bigger firestorm Conservative News Today

Kanye West set social media off on Saturday when he called for the abolition of the 13th Amendment.

That he — or should we say “YE” — was rocking a red “Make America Great Again” hat when he did so seemed only fitting.

“[T]his represents good and America becoming whole again.  We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs.  We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love,” the hip-hop artist tweeted.

That the 13th Amendment abolishes slavery muddied the waters up real quick, but West appeared to be talking about prison labor, which the amendment makes legal.

The 13th Amendment declares: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”

He tried to clarify what he meant, but still came up a little short on specifics.

“[T]he 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended […] We are the solution that heals,” West said in a second tweet.

And still they raged, prompted a third and more explicit tweet from West saying not to abolish the 13th Amendment, but to “amend it.”

“[N]ot abolish but. let’s amend the 13th amendment […] We apply everyone’s opinions to our platform,” he tweeted.

not abolish but. let’s amend the 13th amendment

We apply everyone’s opinions to our platform

West had already drawn the ire of the left over the weekend when he bravely wore a MAGA hat while performing on “Saturday Night Live.”

The appearance drew the praise of the president, who took to Twitter to say West was “great.”

“Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!” he tweeted.

As for the rage, West serves as an example of how the left treats those who leave the Democratic plantation — a wholesale exit of black Americans would be crippling for the party.

Some of the most stinging criticism comes from African Americans who buy into the party’s victimization narrative. Many of the same people who also suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The 13th ammendment abolished slavery. Re-upping this from the last time: @ye is truly an idiot. Message sent with distaste for idiocy. https://t.co/d0BNi45Zm8

Ok…so I think it’s time that we all should just head down to our local precincts and file a restraining order on this…this…help me Lord…uh this troubled individual. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want this fool anywhere near me. 🙏🏽 https://t.co/k2WtgRW5x8

…You would LOVE books, dude. They’re like millions of hat slogans stacked together. They would blow your face!

Baldwin, Du Bois, Angelou, Michelle Alexander. This is such a waste of a platform and black thinker that genuinely seems to want to get at something. Fook! https://t.co/3hT1PjCRnA

Idiocy is the willingness to sell out your culture for trinkets. @kanyewest doesn’t understand reality. The same hat he is wearing is responsible for Jeff Sessions and taking us back a decade in Criminal Justice reform. @kanyewest is a clown who wants to sale albums. I’m good. https://t.co/ZK6qcqf8Gr

Folks, let’s cut tot the chase: @kanyewest has no idea what in the hell he is talking about. His rambling, unfocused, nonsensical tweets can’t even be revised to make sense.BASIC question, Kanye: “When was the last time America was ‘whole’?” I’ll wait. https://t.co/fXrTNCAXqD

Slavery is *technically* still allowable as “punishment for a crime” under the 13th Amendment but, Ye being Ye, he doesn’t really clarify? That’s what I’m assuming he means, though, because I can’t imagine he wants to repeal the whole amendment. https://t.co/4hBtZHTDQl
