It’s getting old watching award shows where celebrities toe the Democratic Party line and offer up stale talking points. This, of course, is safe and expected and is why it happens so often.

Celebrity Twitter, on the other hand, has been far more intriguing the past few days as Kanye West has opined about philosophical, ideological, and cultural phenomenons which center around the fact that there are other ideas out there.

Sadly, diversity of thought is now shocking, but that’s exactly why West’s tweets are desperately needed and why some are considering the Twitter commentary as the beginning of a cultural revolution. I, for one, thank him for forcing the “woke” crowd to wake up, even if it’s temporary.

Hollywood, higher education, and the digital sphere has all but shut out free speech, free thought, and freedom of association. Many in these circles would call such freedoms antiquated American values. Legally these rights still stand, but culturally these values and those who believe in them are certainly under attack.

This is evident in the way that Facebook and Twitter censor political commentary, Antifa riotsover the mere announcement of a conservative speaker coming to a college campus, and in the way that many questioned West’s mental stability after he expressed his support for President Trump. Those who truly understand the beauty of free-market innovation and appreciate robust and diverse thinking, on which our country was founded upon, are now considered extreme when they mention such ideas.

This devolution of the American values of freedom and individuality is not a Republican-versus-Democratic policy debate. As West tweeted, he does not fully support everything Trump stands for nor does he dislike Hillary Clinton.
