“Group think is a mandate in today’s society and when a free thinker like Kanye West speaks truth, they attack him,” a fundraising text sent to supporters reads. “We support Kanye speaking his mind, even if sometimes we do not agree on the issues,” it continues. “Do not let them silence you. Get your red MAGA hat today.”
The message is a reference to West’s Wednesday tweet about free thinking and his “love” for Trump. “You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,” West wrote. “We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.” (You can catch up on all of West’s tweets about Trump here.)
The Republican National Committee also retweeted a photo of the “Famous” rapper’s signed MAGA hat and invited followers to get their own.
