Maxine Waters Tells Kanye West To Shut Up: ‘He Should Not Have So Much To Say’


Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) attacks Kanye West for questioning the hegemony of the Democratic Party among black Americans.

Waters stated, “Kanye West is a very creative young man. … But we also think that sometimes West talks out of turn and perhaps he needs some assistance in helping him to formulate some of his thoughts. We don’t think that he actually means to do harm, but we’re not sure he really understands the impact of what he’s saying, at the time that he’s saying it and how that weighs on, particularly the African-American community – and for young people in general.”

She continued: “I understand that he is getting pushback from a lot of young people on the internet … but we’re hopeful that his creativity will continue to be demonstrated in his work. And I think maybe he should think twice about politics – and maybe not have so much to say.”

“Talks out of turn”? “Maybe not have so much to say”? West’s entire point is that he should be able to speak out in ways Maxine Waters doesn’t like.

Waters’ nonsense is incredibly paternalistic, obviously.

Imagine if a white person said something like this about, say, LeBron James. Oh, wait, it happened, and the entire Left called Laura Ingraham a racist.

I have an idea … we should have her shut up … don’t you think?
