Rapper Kanye West blasted Democrats for “brainwashing” the black community into voting for them — by using food stamps, the notion of abortion, and more.
West, who has raised the ire of liberals recently with his embrace of President Donald Trump, made the controversial comments on Friday during an interview with radio host Big Boy.
“We’re brainwashed out here, bro,” the American songwriter said.
“Come on, man. This is a free man talking,” he said during the interview.
West then critiqued the Democrat Party, suggesting that those on the Left use guns, food stamps, and abortion to control the black community by convincing African-Americans to vote in their favor — despite never delivering for the people.

West revealed why he thinks the black community votes overwhelmingly with the Democrat Party.
“Democrats had us voting for Democrats with food stamps for years,” he said in an exasperated voice.
“What are you talking about — guns in the ’80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort children.”
The rapper suggested that when an entire community votes with one party — it’s easy to “control” them.
By contrast, he said, “If you go to a white bar, you gonna hear people talking independent. You gonna hear people talking Democrat. You gonna hear people talking Republican.”

West made similar comments following a “Saturday Night Live” performance last year while donning a Make America Great Again hat.
“The blacks want always Democrats … You know, it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out [of] the home and put them on welfare … Does anybody know about that?” he asked a stunned crowd. “That’s a Democratic plan.”
Kanye West is now a pariah among the Left.
CNN hosts, for example, have been lambasting him for some time.
They’ve been smearing West as illiterate and a “token Negro.”
Here’s a tweet about it from a year ago:
Last night on @CNN, Kanye West was called a “token negro” and a “dumb negro”.
I want you guys to imagine if those words were EVER uttered on @FoxNews.
CNN has finally committed to going full blown RACIST.

Still, Kanye West has caught the eye of the president of the United States for his comments — which stray from typical leftist thoughts.
“Kanye West has performed a great service to the black community,” President Trump tweeted last year, in the spring of 2018.
“Big things are happening and eyes are being opened for the first time in decades.”
