Kanye West Confirms 2024 Presidential Bid

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

The persecution of conservatives since the 2020 presidential election had reached unprecedented heights as the concept of “disinformation” and political correctness on steroids called “wokeness” had the media punishing, blocking, and canceling all who spoke any opinions that were not held by said media.

The social media giant Twitter canceled users at a furious rate, even canceling the President of the United States.

The recent purchase of the social media platform by Elon Musk, who vowed to make free speech possible on social media again, has opened up the platform to those who state conservative views as well as liberal and now some are reveling in that freedom.

Kanye West, now going by Ye, was one of the blocked conservatives. West has been the recent subject of further persecution due to remarks he has made that were charged with being hateful. West says he was misunderstood, which is easy to do with West who often makes complicated, rambling, sometimes contest-lacking statements in interviews and on social media.

West’s return to Twitter comes after he was dropped by a string of companies including Adidas, Balenciaga, and Vogue magazine after he posted content that was deemed anti-Semitic.

JP Morgan Chase also ended its business relationship with the rapper, according to a letter posted to Twitter by conservative commentator Candace Owens, which was allegedly from the bank and which stated that it would terminate its business relationship with Yeezy and its affiliated entities by Nov. 21.

“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE, ” West wrote in one of the posts that sparked backlash. “The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”

In other posts, West wrote, “Who do you think invented cancel culture?” and: “Iranian youth are leading a revolution against 44 years of dictatorship. The world needs to support them and honor their courage.”

Now, reinstated on Twitter thanks to Musk’s new policies, West has his account back to further his reach.

On Sunday, West returned to Twitter after being locked out of his account in October for violating the company’s policies when he posted a tweet that was accused of being anti-Semitic.

“Testing testing, seeing if my Twitter is unblocked,” he tweeted, to which new Twitter owner Elon Musk replied, “Don’t kill what ye hate, save what ye love.”

Shortly after, West shared another post that simply read “Shalom” alongside a smiling emoji. Shalom is a Hebrew word meaning “peace.”

West’s absence from the social media platform has everyone noticing new posts with controversial people.

One person is a conservative figure and former Breitbart editor, Milo Yiannopoulos announced earlier this year that he had been hired as an unpaid intern by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) in her congressional office. Greene’s office also confirmed his hiring. Yiannopoulos previously worked for Breitbart from 2014 but resigned in 2017 following backlash over comments he made in a video in which he stated that sex between 13-year-olds and older men can be “life-affirming,” according to the New York Post.

In a new Twitter post which has since been deleted, a video posted on Sunday by the account Patriot Takes shows West, whose legal name is Ye, seen alongside Yiannopoulos, Zero Hedge reports.

“This is Milo right here, working on the campaign,” West, 45, says in the video. “Is that an announcement?” one man asks West, to which he responds by laughing.

“I guess it is,” he adds, to which a laughing Yiannopoulos replies, “Thanks, I accept.”

Later, in the video West posted on Sunday, the fashion designer can be seen holding up a pair of tracksuit bottoms branded with the words “Ye24.”

“That’s what I’m talking about,” the rapper tells the cameraman.

“So you are running?” the cameraman then asks West, to which he responds, “Yes, simple.”

“It’s simple ’cause ain’t [sic] nobody can tell me, you know, ‘you should say this, you shouldn’t say that,’ you know? It’s just we’re moving towards the future,” West adds.

It is unclear when the video was initially by taken or by whom. The Epoch Times has contacted Yiannopoulos and a representative for West for comment.

In November 2020 Reuters noted that West’s bid for the presidency had him on the ballot in a number of states, emphasizing religion and family values. West himself voted in Cody, Wyoming. West conceded soon after he received only 60,000 votes total, and did not waste any time tweeting “Kanye 2024” after the concession. Appearing in 12 states, West received the most votes in the state of Tennessee, 10,188 votes. West had urged voters in other states to write his name in on the ballots where he was not represented.

Several independent candidates ran in that election. the Libertarian candidate was Jo Jorgensen from Clemson University in South Carolina and the Green Party candidate was Howie Hawkins, co-founder of the Green Party.
