Watch: Kanye Schools TMZ Founder for Asking Him To Take Off MAGA Hat During Interview


Rap megastar Kanye West doesn’t always have the most clear and concise political message, but one of the biggest takeaways from his recent political comments is that he is tired of liberals telling black people how they should feel.

And when West spoke to TMZ founder Harvey Levin on Tuesday, he shut down Levin’s attempts at controlling his political opinions — starting with the “Make America Great Again” hat West wore for the interview.

“I would love it, Kanye, if you would not wear that hat,” said Levin. “It would make me and a lot of other people feel better.”

Poor Levin. He was actually at least cordial toward Trump until disagreeing with the president over transgenders in the military, according to Spin. In early August, after Trump tangled with NBA star LeBron James, Levin published a personal tweet that declared “He’s got to go.”

Now, Levin is apparently so sensitive about the president that he actually wanted West to take off his pro-Trump hat in order for his feelings not to be hurt.

The rapper made it clear that he was not going to comply to Levin’s demands.

“As an American, I support our president,” West said.

This is just one example of an elite liberal, like Levin, who has tried to police West’s political messages.

West has been highly critical of leftists for their attempts at “bullying” black people.

Should the left stop trying to control Kanye?

“I wanna cry right now. Black man in America, you’re supposed to keep what you feel inside right now. And the liberals bully you and tell you what you can and cannot wear,” West said in an unaired performance Saturday on “Saturday Night Live,” according to People.

West is hinting at something that goes far beyond his Trump hat.

Liberals are trying their hardest to stop black conservatives — and it isn’t just in the United States.

For example, Kehinde Andrews, a sociology professor of at Birmingham City University in Birmingham, England, took West’s political messages as an opportunity to tell black conservatives that they are wrong.

In his piece for the U.K. Independent, Andrews said West “is an advert for the fallacies at the heart of black conservatism.”

He also bluntly wrote, “Black conservatives are wrong.”

What is it that makes liberals so mad when they see black conservatives or black Trump supporters?

Perhaps liberals are upset they are unable to concoct false accusations of racism against Trump when prominent black Americans don a MAGA hat.

Even then, black conservatives face racist comments from liberals like anti-Trump rapper Snoop Dogg, who called West an “Uncle Tom” after his “SNL” performance, according to Breitbart.

West should be applauded for thinking freely and exposing liberal elites like Levin.

Our hats are off to him.
