The best thing that can be said about Kanye West is that he certainly had an interesting fall.
It all started, quite innocently, with a relatively standard interview in October on Tucker Carlson Tonight, in which the rapper sounded clear, if a bit eccentric.
That would quickly lead to a series of anti-Semitic social posts that West — aka “Yeezy” or simply “Ye” — lost most of his sponsors to an announced presidential candidacy that made David Duke’s 1992 campaign seem plausible at a dinner in Mar -a-Lago with former President Donald Trump and Holocaust denier/carbon waste Nick Fuentes.
Given the pace of events over the past few weeks, one might think West would be taking the holidays. Call it an early Christmas break, spend the next few weeks watching Hallmark movies, and meet up again in January when his sanity and public image may have improved.
Instead, on Friday he unveiled some sort of logo for his 2024 presidential election: a Star of David with a swastika in the middle.

According to BuzzFeed, West introduced the abomination along with the text “YE24. LOVE ALL #LOVESPEECH.” YE24, just in case you haven’t guessed, is a reference to his 2024 presidential bid, which I don’t think got a boost from that “#LOVESPEECH.”
Should Kanye West Be Suspended From Twitter?

No: 43% (3 votes)
Anyway, @StopAntisemites’ question was answered quickly as Twitter immediately suspended West’s account. Again.
“I tried my best. However, he again violated our policy against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended,” Musk tweeted in response to another user, according to Reuters.
However, Musk did do a little more during a text call with West, if screenshots the rapper posted to his Truth Social account are any indication.
The iMessage conversation, at least what’s visible of it, started with Musk saying to Ye, “You’ve gone too far. That’s not love.”
West responded and asked, “Who made you a judge?”
Musk’s answer may surprise more than a few people:
Our Father who art in heaven
Blessed be your name.
your kingdom come.
Your will be done on earth
How it is in heaven.
Kanye’s obvious answer: “I am Jesus name.”
In fairness, this might have been an autocorrect. In the case of Kanye, he’s not necessarily given the benefit of that doubt. After all, this is a man who once wrote a song called “I Am a God” that included this interesting conversation with the Almighty:
I just spoke to Jesus
He said, “What about Yeezus?”
I said, “S***, I’m chilling
Trying to stack those millions”
I know him best
But I’m close
That’s not to say West hasn’t had moments of religious enlightenment in the past. That said, to any outside observer who isn’t named Nick Fuentes, it’s clear that the rapper is going through a period of chaotic spiritual darkness in which his gargantuan ego has snuffed out the light of the Lord — and apparently his spiritual well-being.
Yes, I doubt Musk is happy with West right now, especially since you know he’s being repurposed as a cudgel to show what “free speech absolutism” really looks like. (The fact that West was suspended as a result is, of course, very suggestive is not what Musk is talking about in terms of free speech.)
Instead, he said a prayer — a prayer Kanye badly needs as he’s lost in the dark forest of his own bigotry, disease, and egomaniacal delusions.
As he or she loathes, it’s a prayer more of us should be saying about Kanye. He is clearly a sick man at the moment – but God in His infinite power can heal even the most infirm, either physically or spiritually. Heaven knows he needs all the prayers he can get.
