Hold Yer Nose, cause this one's a stinker:

Most people are aware of Kanye West's ridiculous statements on NBC a few days ago. Where he publicly said, "George Bush doesn't care about black people." And that America is set up "to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible." The rest of his diatribe consisted of chastizing the media for their protrayal of those who were looting and blah, blah, blah.

Mike Meyers, his partner on the air at the time in a plea to donate money and resources to Katrina's victims, was flabberghasted. It took him a few seconds to regroup before he could start reading from the teleprompter again.

Mr. West is a full-blown, dyed-in-the-wool asshole. During his impromptu speech in which he excoriated a number of people he said he felt guilty for buying groceries for himself and hadn't contributed yet, "... so now I'm calling my business manager, right now, to see what is, what is, the biggest amount I can give ..."

So while he's ranting and criticizing, he hasn't even yet donated anything himself. After FIVE DAYS! And he can't donate anything without calling his business manager first?

Now Mr. Kanye is part of a concert for hurricane relief and says this, "I don't want to detract from the show at all, because it's entertainment, and a lot of times, in a time of need, we need entertainment to lift people's spirits," he refuse to say anything about his earlier idiocy. Or whose spirits he was trying to lift when he said, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

Joel Madden, of the band Good Charlotte, said this in defense of West, "The great thing about our country is we all get to say what we feel and believe. Whether you agree with him, or whether I agree with him or not, he has the right to say what he thinks."

DUH!!! This has been the standard reply every time someone is chastised for saying stupid and idiotic things. "They have a right!" Well hells bells! [slaps forehead] I hadn't thought of that.

That's not even the point you friggin' moron.

Yes, he has the right. And we have the right to reject such claptrap and race-baiting. And you know what else? We have the right to free speech as well when we say out loud, "Kanye West, you stink!"
