Kanye West Becoming a Voice of Reason?

Yeezy is raising some eyebrows with his latest Tweets. Yesterday, he tweeted that he likes the way Candace Owens thinks.

Owens is a conservative African American who has been critical of the Black Lives Matters movement. She’s the communications director for Turning Point USA and has her own YouTube channel where she often criticizes liberal policies. She’s also a strong Trump supporter.

On Fox and Friends this morning, she thanked Kanye for his support, adding that “Kanye West does not really want to fold to controversy. If you look at things historically, Kanye West has really represented the battering ram against political correctness.”

Liberals were immediately upset by West’s tweet.

Then today, West began fighting back, tweeting in favor of differing opinions and railing against the thought police.

Hate to say it but Kanye is making a lot of sense here. And it’s kind of refreshing to see a celebrity thinking oppositely of how people think he should.

Actress Stacey Dash ends bid for Congress

While Congress may be filled with many clueless people, it will not have anyone who starred in the film “Clueless.”

That’s because actress Stacey Dash has ended her congressional bid in California. Dash made the announcement Friday, posting a statement to Twitter.

Dash said she “believes the overall bitterness surrounding the political process, participating in the rigors of campaigning, and holding elected office would be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of my family.”

The Republican and former Fox News contributor bows out of the race after filing to run in California in February.

It’s unlikely Dash would’ve won, considering she was running in heavily Democratic California. Even though she’s a female and a person of color, she would’ve had an “R” by her name and while Dems may drone on and on about diversity, having a “D” by the candidate’s name comes before race, gender or sexual orientation.

South Park creators: ‘We’re Republicans’

Matt Stone and Trey Parker have created one of the most crude, vulgar and absolutely hilarious shows in television history: South Park.

If you aren’t familiar with South Park or its many, many characters such as Kyle, Cartman, Kenny, Stan, Butters or Professor Chaos, where exactly have you been the last 20 years or so?

South Park has a knack for causing controversy, taking current events and going in a completely unexpected, even absurd direction with them.

In addition to being hilarious, the show is often thought-provoking, using comedy to make their, which generally don’t follow the typical Hollywood liberal, point of view.

Well, Stone and Parker have done it again, making waves in Hollywood.

According to a post from conservative author and radio host, Larry Elder, he recently introduced the pair before a liberal group that was honoring them with an award.

Anyway, the creators apparently surprised the group, saying “We’re Republicans. No, seriously, we’re Republicans.”

This is typical Stone and Parker, take someone’s expectations and turn them on themselves.

Whether they are actually Republicans, who knows. But one could easily make that because argument South Park generally espouses Republican/Libertarian views.

Taylor Swift Breaks Her Political Silence

Up until now, Taylor Swift has been silent on anything having to do with politics. Sadly, that era is over.

Swift posted this on her Instagram page, supporting tomorrow’s March for Our Lives and gun reform. She says she has been moved by the students from Parkland and donated to their cause.

Short, but a powerful statement from one of music’s biggest stars on the planet.

Taylor is free to have her own views of course, but it was really refreshing that we didn’t have to hear about them and could enjoy her music without the political baggage that comes with so many celebrities.

Will her conservative Second Amendment supporting fans shake this off or has she done lasting damage to her reputation?

‘Sex and the City’ actress announces run for governor of New York

Another celebrity from New York has announced their intention to run for office. However, unlike the last celebrity from the Empire State to run for office, the White House is not in their sights…at least not yet.

Cynthia Nixon, best known for her role as Miranda, on the popular HBO series Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York.

The actress will challenge the current governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, in this year’s Democratic primary.

Check out the ad below:

Nixon certainly puts her Hollywood experience to work in this extremely well made ad. She talks about her children, the growing income disparity between New Yorkers and hits the typical Democratic/progressive hot button issues.

In addition to her ad, Nixon has also launched a campaign website.

While most people won’t have a dog in this fight, this should still be an interesting race to watch.

Jim Carrey’s ‘art’ has people a bit upset

Whether or not you enjoy his type of comedy, Jim Carrey is a legend in the world of funny.

Dumb and Dumber.  Liar Liar. The Ace Ventura flicks. The Cable Guy and Me, Myself and Irene. These are just some of the funny films Carrey has produced during his career. However, his career seems to have hit an extended dry spell, not really doing much, let alone anything funny.

But like most celebrities whose careers dry up, Carrey has turned to the world of politics in an attempt to stay relevant. His most recent take on our current political situation has some people pretty upset.

Check out the funny man’s artwork.

This photo is obviously a caricature of Sarah Sanders, meant to portray her in a not so positive light.

Carrey then followed up that work with yet another one. This one is a take on President Trump and Vladimir Putin.

Yet, another celebrity doesn’t like President Trump. Big surprise, right?

Likely the biggest shock though is how people have reacted to Carrey’s artistic take on Sanders and Trump.

 

Jennifer Lawrence Taking a Year Off Acting to “Work on Our Democracy”

Oscar winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has decided to take a year off acting to focus on fixing America.

 

“I’m going to be working with this organization as a part of Represent. Us … trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level. It doesn’t have anything to do with partisan (politics). It’s just anti-corruption and stuff trying to pass state-by-state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy.”

Lawrence also serves on the board of Represent. Us, supposedly a non-partisan group that “represents a broad political spectrum, from progressives to Tea Party conservatives.”

The creative council doesn’t seem to have a lot of conservative names listed, though.

Over the last few years, Lawrence gotten increasingly political, just last month participating in the Women’s March and posting this photo on her Facebook with the caption:

“I stand in solidarity for
Women’s rights
Equal pay
DACA
CHIP”

I wonder if Lawrence has ever considered that people are tired of this kind of thing from Hollywood? Her box office performance has been steadily dropping since The Hunger Games wrapped up. Maybe people just want her to stick to what she’s best at – acting.
