Continuing his adamant refusal to shut up and let the left’s racism go unchallenged, Kanye West appeared on a podcast with Nick Cannon this week to share his pointed thoughts about abortion in America and, specifically, the organization responsible for promoting and performing more of these procedures than any other.
“In 50 years, there’s been 22 million — over 22,500,000 — black people aborted strategically and on purpose. Planned Parenthood was set up and placed in minority communities to kill black people,” he said.
Cannon suggested that Planned Parenthood’s defenders would argue that while Margaret Sanger was undoubtedly a racist eugenicist, the organization itself has evolved past that dubious history to become a force for good in America and for the black community specifically. West, however, rejected that idea, noting that Sanger was particularly interested in lowering the black population in the United States.
“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, abortion kills more black people than HIV, homicide, diabetes, accidents, cancer, and heart disease — watch this one — combined,” West said. “Three thousand shootings in Chicago a year, 700 murders, you’ve got to put that with heart disease, you’ve got to put that with HIV, you’ve got to put that with diabetes, you’ve got to put that with just accidents, and put that with cancer, and it doesn’t add up to specifically abortions. If you think about that number, 1,000 black babies are aborted each day.”
West said he’s sent those statistics to friends of his and received mixed reactions.
“It’s funny because I’ve sent this to people, and there are some people that say, ‘wow, that touches me.’ Some people say, ‘I feel that,’” he said. “And an overwhelming amount of people that I send it to and their response was, ‘Thank you for sending that.’”
“With no emotion,” Cannon remarked.
“Thank you for sending? Why would you thank anyone for sending that?” West mused.
Well, because they don’t want to challenge the liberal narrative that says abortion is the best thing that ever happened to American women. They don’t want to think about what it really means to kill all of these unborn babies. They don’t want to sit down and consider the terrible harm we are doing to our national soul with this unimaginable holocaust.
Thanks to people like Kanye, though, they may have no choice but to confront these uncomfortable facts sooner or later.
