Kanye West confirms 2024 Presidential run, hires “ex-gay” Milo Yiannopoulos for campaign

 

Freshly reinstated on Twitter following a ban for numerous unforgivable antisemitic rants, Kanye West is once again proving that cancel culture is, in fact, a complete myth – by throwing his hat in the ring (again) for U.S. President.

 

The rapper – whose list of credits in 2022 also include violent rhetoric against Kim Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson, promoting a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt while premiering his Yeezy line at Paris Fashion Week, getting dropped by Adidas, levelling repeated slurs at Daily Show host Trevor Noah (to name just a few) – was spotted heading into a recording studio in a clip that has since had the internet talking.

 

 

After unsuccessfully running for President in 2020, West is giving it another go in 2024, this time hoping the wisdom of “ex-gay” Milo Yinnopoulous help him secure the White House.

 

The rapper confirmed his upcoming campaign to reporters over the weekend, according to Consequence of Sound. “Yes… It’s simple…. It’s just we’re moving toward the future,” he said when asked if he’s running.

Ye then confirmed that alt-right political figure Milo Yiannopoulos “is working on the campaign.”

Yiannopoulos, a former Breitbart senior editor, most recently worked as an intern for Republican congresswoman and right-wing extremist Marjorie Taylor Greene.

 

In 2017, Yiannopoulos was fired from Brietbart after he appeared to condone statutory rape and sexual relationships between underage boys and men.

In 2021, Milo came out… as an “ex-gay”, telling far-right anti-LGBT+ LifeSite News that he was no longer engaging in gay sex and wanted to rehabilitate the practice of conversion therapy.

“Anyone who’s read me closely over the past decade must surely have seen this coming,” Yiannopoulos told Doug Mainwaring – also a self-proclaimed celibate gay Catholic – at LifeSite.

 

“I wasn’t shy about dropping hints. In my New York Times-bestselling book Dangerous, I heavily hinted I might be ‘coming out’ as straight in the future. And in my recent stream-of-consciousness Telegram feed, I’ve been even more explicit — stomach-churningly so, if the comments under my ‘x days without sodomy’ posts are anything to go by.”

He said he was “never wholly at home in the gay lifestyle” and “only leaned heavily into it in public because it drove liberals crazy to see a handsome, charismatic, intelligent gay man riotously celebrating conservative principles.”

 

Here’s the clip that got folk online talking:

 

 

 

Here’s what some people had to say on Twitter about Kanye’s new partnership, which we imagine will be considerably less lucrative than the one he lost with Adidas.
