First things, first. Controversial business mogul Kanye West has adopted various names over his career, including “Yeezy,” “Yeezus,” and now, simply “Ye.” Now let’s get to the issue at hand — Ye-style.
As my colleague Jennifer Oliver reported on Monday, Ye and his guest, conservative political commentator Candace Owens, showed up in Paris for Fashion Week, decked out in matching “White Lives Matter” long-sleeved T-shirts. Ye also premiered the YZY Season 9 clothing line in Paris, but the “White Lives Matter” thingy led to tantrums on the left. And, Ye? The Ts were just the beginning.

The ridiculous Anti-Defamation League called the phrase “White Lives Matter” a “racist response” to BLM. The ADL has also called the slogan a “white supremacist phrase.”
Meanwhile, as reported by Daily Wire, one day after donning the “White Lives Matter” T-shirts with evil [sarc] conservative Owens, Ye declared the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement “over” — and then some, in a simple post to his 18 million Instagram followers.
Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam. Now it’s over, you’re welcome.
Yep, the artist formerly known as Kanye thinks Black Lives Matter is a scam. Welcome aboard, Ye.

Before the show began, Ye reportedly told his audience, “Everyone here knows that I am the leader. You can’t manage me. This is an unmanageable situation.”
Kanye caused a previous firestorm on left in 2018 by announcing his support for evil white supremacist [sarc], Donald Trump, and subsequently appearing with Trump at rallies. During an Oval Office meeting with Trump, Kanye again said what we already know about the left.
People expect that if you’re black, you have to be a Democrat. I’ve had conversations that basically said that Welfare is the reason why a lot of black people end up being Democrat. First of all, it’s a limit to a lot of jobs. So, the fathers lose the jobs, and they say, ‘We’ll give you more money for having more kids in your home. …
They tried to scare me to not wear this hat — my own friends — but this hat, it gives me power, in a way. … When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman, my favorite action hero.
While Kanye is “unique,” and might bounce back and forth from position to position, at times, everything he said in the above quote spoke truth against today’s left-wing world. Again, Kanye-style.
And what of Black Lives Matter?
As my colleague Jeff Charles reported in March, federal authorities charged Black Lives Matter leader Monica Cannon-Grant and her husband with fraud for allegedly engaging in a variety of illicit activities related to her so-called “nonprofit” organization and only days after news broke that the couple was under investigation, authorities arrested the activists.
As RedState also reported in February, AmazonSmile, a charity platform that allows online shoppers to add donations to specific charities through their Amazon purchases, suspended Black Lives Matter for its “questionable” handling of money.
The list of alleged improprieties of the hate group is long.
The Bottom Line
Call him what you want, from Kanye to Yeezy to Ye; Kanye West has become a controversial voice of reason. He sometimes takes short trips on the crazy train, but he’s a man who’s not afraid to stick it to the party he’s expected to serve — no questions asked.
