Kanye West should be Ridiculed and Mocked

There is a post going around twitter by someone with Parkinson's discussing the use of Parkinsnon's in Kanye West's new album Yeezus.  The post discusses the insensitivity of using Parkinson's in his lyrics and trying to educate him better.  The lyrics he used are:
The monster about to come alive again
Soon as I pull up and park the Benz 
We get this bitch shaking like Parkinson’s
While the writer of the post has good intentions of trying to get another celebrity on the side of Parkinson's patients and bring publicity to the fight against the disease, I can tell you it's not going to work.  The reason is not the message in his post, but to whom he is sending the message.

Kanye West is out for Kanye West.  This is why he won't care one iota about how his lyrics affect others, only if it affects his bottom line.  Off the top of my head:

  1. This is a man who married Kim Kardashian and is basically having public spats with her about their soon to be new born child.  He doesn't care whether publicity is good or bad, just that it is there.
  2. He called his album Yeezus.  Even as a Jew, I can't help but think this is a take on calling himself Jesus, for no other reason then one of the other tracks on the album is literally, "I am a God"
Beside this, Kanye doesn't care about the truth and is an idiot.  The lyrics to the track "Black Skinhead" on the same album are: 
I keep it 300, like the Romans, 300 bitches, where's the Trojans?  
This is actually a reference to the Spartans defeat of the Persians in The Battle of Thermopylae made famous more recently by the movie 300.  The more amusing part is this is not some throwaway line, it's the freaking chorus.  If Kanye West doesn't care about facts in the freaking chorus of his song he sung on Saturday Night Live, why would he care about offending someone, anyone with Parkinson's.  Besides, he probably thinks those with Parkinson's are mostly old, white people.
