During the latest national tour stop of Kanye West’s Sunday services in Salt Lake City, the 42-year-old rapper proclaimed his undying allegiance to the Republican Party.

Yeezy told the audience not long after commandeering the stage, that Abraham Lincoln and the Republican Party freed the slaves

“Abraham Lincoln was the Whig Party—that’s the Republican Party that freed the slaves,” he said. “[…] I ain’t never make a decision based only on my color. That’s a form of slavery — mental slavery. I ain’t drink from the white person fountain. … I ain’t playing with them. All these mind controllers, the media, all of these mind controllers. I find that wherever Christ is where I’ve got my mind at. We find that the love of Christ is where I’ve got my mind back.”

Kanye has gotten grief in recent times for his unqualified support for anything Republican, including the current administration and he has bucked back at his haters.

In Utah’s capital city on Sunday, Kanye continued with theme that race does not influence his personal decisions.
