Jackass.

He's exactly the kind of jackass who would wear a swastika on tour in Germany, and then get outraged that they're too sensitive, or something. Right before they arrest him.

Fark Kanye is right.

I don't think I've ever even heard any of his so-called music, but I know who he is just because he's a farking attention whore.

Musician?

He's so edgy!  Look at how outrageous he is!  I can't believe it!

I find his "music" about 8 different kinds of annoying..... but anything that can be done to reduce the redneck cachet of the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia is a good thing.

If you think about it, Kanye is so trivial, so obnoxious, so goofy, that he is the perfect choice to take the symbolic power of that damn dishrag and turn it irreparably into farce. He seems to understand it's not going away so he's co-opting it in a way guaranteed to ruin the whole thing for the trailer park set.

This may be his greatest achievement.

He probably just thought he looked good in those colors.

I'm old enough to remember that back in the 80's during one summer it was a fad to wear Confederate hats. It was so stupid. I think that was the same summer it was also popular to wear cheap white sweatshirts with high end fashion logos emblazoned on them, like Gucci.

'So I made the song New Slaves. So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. It's my flag now. Now what are you going to do?'

Blame you for your symbol of self hating racism?

You don't need to listen to his music to know he's a total douche. And hooking up with KK turns it into a vortex of sucky douchiness that imperils all life as we know it.

Don't worry gfid, you aren't missing much, unless bland pop is your thing.

Pretty sure if you step from behind those security guards, step into real redneck territory (aka, the 'Deliverance' kinda place where the buses don't run and literally everyone's family) and say that, they'll be more than glad to 'do something about it'.

Kind of what I was thinking. The white supremacist types (cheery bunch, aren't they?) would be mad as hornets. And, that's rather amusing.

The other possibility is that Kanye is just ignorant as to the significance of that flag, but that may be a stretch.
 
2013-11-03 09:08:47 AM  
Because of this I will continue to have never heard his music

Being a douche does not mean your music sucks.

Many of the best musicians have been douches.
 
2013-11-03 09:13:17 AM  
Wait, what?

No, never mind.  I do not want to know.

But I'm a sophisticated person and have never heard of [insert popular musician's name here] thus proving how sophisticated I am.
 
2013-11-03 09:21:05 AM  
I've watched multiple videos of his concert footage, but I've never heard his music. Seems like all he does is rant about how put upon and victimized he is when he's on stage. I've never been to a show where the singer did that, and I don't think I'd appreciate the experience. Just seems like he's more about being a celebrity than being an artist, which really doesn't interest me.
 
2013-11-03 09:23:27 AM  
He's taking it back, Randal-style?

No doubt. I'm gonna laugh my ass off if those types of people embrace Kanye as some sort of symbol, i.e. His face on a confederate flag at a clan rally, playing his music at a clan rally, etc... He did say its his flag now.

Speaking as somebody who's been guilty of AWing in the past,


LOOK AT ME I'M AN ATTENTION WHORE!!

This is the first thing I've seen Kanye do that I support. The guy's a doucher, but this idea is great.

Just when you think he is the douchiest douche that ever douched, he kicks it up a notch.
 
2013-11-03 09:54:54 AM  
Co-opting the symbol of rednecks is the most redeeming thing he's ever done.  It will now be The Kanye Flag.

an attempt to reclaim the Southern Cross from racists

Ah, harkening back to those grand ole days when blacks and whites lived together in peace in the Confederate South.

No one man should have all that power.

You know how people always say that Kiss have to make a spectacle of themselves to cover up the fact they have no actual talent?  Same thing.

Kanye, go ahead, have the flag.  It's the flag your political party embraced 150 years ago when your ancestors were enslaved by them.

Yeah. He tries to ruin that one Katty Perry song about aliens but, you know, tits and stuff.
 
2013-11-03 11:08:16 AM  
Has anyone pinpointed the time when he went from being a bloke with some decent music to apparently to being a walking joke to get attention? You could have been a lot more, Kanye, now you're just a tool.

Marquis de Sod: Because of this I will continue to have never heard his music


you are missing out on some intellectual gold.  we're talking life-changing, epiphany-generating genius.  for example:

Who gave Saddam anthrax?
George Bush got the answers
Back in the hood it's a different type of chemical
Am and Hammer baking soda
Raised they own quota

Writin' when our soldiers ran for the stove 'cuz
'Cuz dreams of being 'hova went
From bein a brokeman ta bein' a dopeman
Ta bein' a President, look there's hope man

This that inspiration for tha mos and tha folks man
Shorty come and see if mama straight overdosin'
And this is the soundtrack
This tha type of music you make when you round that

GENIUS!
 
2013-11-03 11:34:42 AM  
Fark all of you overly sensitive pricks. Kanye is from Ga, which means that flag is a part of his heritage too. How/if he chooses to use it is up to him.

In the awful battle between Neo-Confederates and Kanye, there are no winners, only losers.

Reciting poetry to a continuous 15 second loop of some other artist's song is not music.  It's reciting poetry.  At least rap songs in the 70s put original music to their poetry recitations.

And I can see racists considering this a good thing.  It helps unite the world in hatred of at least one black man.
 
2013-11-03 12:04:39 PM  
What a f*cking tool, both as a person and as a supposed musical talent.
 
2013-11-03 12:10:06 PM  
It's great to be at the Apollo theater! And uh...

...that's not good!

Who knew he was so into states rights?

/har har
 
2013-11-03 12:34:02 PM  
The brilliant thing is that this will piss off everybody. It's the perfect attention whore move. Bet it was Kim's idea.
 
2013-11-03 12:48:06 PM  
Okay, I'm done with this dude. I haven't liked a song of his in years anyway. Be gone.
 
2013-11-03 01:01:56 PM  
I wonder if Kanye is aware that there are a few black bottoms that fetishize the confederate flag and redneck tops.
 
2013-11-03 01:18:11 PM  
Egads! I actually agree with Kanye on this one. We need to take the power away from the flag. It's just a symbol, we can't allow it to have so much power in our lives. Yes, I know symbols have power, that's precisely my point, they shouldn't. Or at least not THIS much of a power.
 
2013-11-03 01:33:42 PM  
Really,  subby, he "[got] in trouble"?  

Jail time?  Fine?  In-school suspension?
 
2013-11-03 01:43:08 PM  
As far as I know, he neither sings nor plays an instrument.
 
2013-11-03 01:45:22 PM  

ecmoRandomNumbers: He's exactly the kind of jackass who would wear a swastika on tour in Germany, and then get outraged that they're too sensitive, or something. Right before they arrest him.


we can hope, right?
 
2013-11-03 01:51:28 PM  
His written lyrics make him look exactly like the person he actually is.
