“David: Well, nobody’s arguing that there shouldn’t be an ongoing conversation. I don’t think you meet any resistance there.”
Tell that to any conservative speaker going to a liberal college. Throngs of people turn up to shout them down and silence them for trying to introduce the conversation.
Kanye scares the heck out of these people the most. He’s outspoken, successful and wait for it… a black and from Hollywood. This is just not supposed to happen.
David: You know what I was stunned by in the midterm elections was the aggressive organization and attempt at voter suppression. Now, we’re not talking about the 1918, we’re talking about 2018, and it’s still going on and being encouraged. So, if I see a person I admire talking about [how] Donald Trump can think whatever he does, I wonder if those thoughts indirectly aren’t hurting people who are already being hurt.
Kanye: Well, how do you feel for the people that voted for his him that are being treated like enemies of America, because that’s what they felt, and they had that opportunity?
David: Every time there’s a presidential election: “time for a change.” It’s endemic. It’s part of the system, and its what keeps this democracy in motion, and it’s always the argument, “You know what the country needs? Is a businessman to run it like a business.” So, the people that voted for him, I understand that, but I wonder to myself, “Are these people ultimately going to be victimized?” And I think now, the people, in good faith, looking to get the country to help them a little more than it has by electing a business guy, I think are now being hurt for it, and I would think that, would not try it again.
Kanye: Have you ever been beat up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?
David: I just been beat up cause people didn’t like me.
David: But I know what you’re saying.
Kanye: The idea is the bullying.
David: Who’s the bully in this scenario?
Kanye: Well, definitely liberals bully people who are Trump supporters. It’s not just calm. You can’t just go and wear the hat. You can’t just go, it’s like, “Fuck you!” Like it’s like.. bro, I have… People, the thing is, in America, we have rights, and we have rights to open the conversation.
David: Well, nobody’s arguing that there shouldn’t be an ongoing conversation. I don’t think you meet any resistance there. Things need to be talked about.
