The media and the high priests of pop culture are once again reminding us that the most virulent form of bigotry is the bigotry of low expectations.
They are currently subjecting Kanye West to round the clock persecution because he dared violate a sacred cow of celebrity authodoxy – expressing dissatisfaction with cliched left-wing dogma.
Kanye's thought crime? Endorsing a sitting president.
The hip hop star reportedly told Hot 97 radio host Ebro Darden, "I love Donald Trump."
Why should it be "controversial" for a celebrity to support the President of the United States?
How did our view of freedom of speech and freedom of thought become so tainted and sullied that this can cause mass outrage?
According to Twitter, this makes Kanye "far-right". According to Cenk Yugur, this opinion makes Kanye, "One of the dumbest guys in the country."
If anything, Kanye's outspoken tweetstorm makes him one of the bravest guys in the country.
