It is unclear how much fear West actually invokes but judging by the backlash he receives it is quite a bit.
Political commentator Dan Bongino said Democrats are fearful of rapper Kanye West, because he is challenging their narrative about the Republican Party being evil.
West delivered a pro-Trump speech during “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend and claimed producers pressured him to remove his MAGA hat before going out on stage. West remained defiant and said he wouldn’t be told what to do.
“This is not a small moment, what happened with Kanye West. Now I get it, Kanye West is probably not a doctrinaire conservative,” Bongino said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “Let’s just stipulate that right now. As a matter of fact I don’t know how deeply involved in the issues Kanye West gets.”
“Here’s the thing. The Democrats have been very effective over the last few decades, in my generation — of getting people to avoid the Republican Party in the minority community … because they’re smart,” he continued.
