“With George, it is so clear it was a lynching at the highest level,” he claimed. At the highest level? What is he talking about? The cop at the center of the controversy was a rogue who has since been charged with murder. “Nobody can deny it, and I thank God we have people in the streets. Can you imagine this kind of lynching taking place and people are indifferent, don’t care — people don’t care?” Who is he referring to? The whole country was repulsed by Floyd’s death. For a purported intellectual, West does a lot of blathering.
West went on to rant that “the system cannot reform itself,” that “we have a neofascist gangster in the White House who doesn’t care” about black lives, and that “white supremacy is going to be around for a long, long, long time… Even in the moment where we have a failed social experiment, we must fight.”
America is not a failed social experiment. The failed social experiment is the progressivism West supports.
