Kanye West is at it again, going directly against the grain of the cultural Left.

Over the weekend, the rapper was in Salt Lake City holding court at one of his Christian Sunday Services.

While speaking to the crowd, Kanye called voting for a candidate based on skin color “mental slavery.”

Furthermore, he hailed Republicans’ place in the racial history of the U.S., referencing a member for which the party seems to rarely get credit — Honest Abe:

“That’s the Republican Party that freed the slaves.”

As relayed by the Washington Examiner, West touted everyone’s right to vote for whichever candidate seems best, without race being a factor.

“And we got the right, right? We got a right to our opinions, right? You black, so you can’t like Trump? I ain’t never made a decision only based on my color. That’s a form of slavery, mental slavery.”

Kanye’s on a bit of a roll where the GOP is concerned. According to The Daily Wire, during his appearance on David Letterman’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction just a few months ago, the unpeggable music star went to bat for The Donald:

Speaking with David Letterman on his Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, in May of this year, West said that Trump supporters have the right to feel what they feel without being bullied by liberals.

“This is like my thing with Trump — we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” West told Letterman.

And almost exactly one year ago, the entrepreneur gave people fits when he visited the President at the White House — for…Trigger Warning…a conversation (here).

In Utah, the controversial figure — who hasn’t tweeted in nearly ten months — encouraged people to stay off social media. It will, he claimed, put you under the thumb of those who want to control you.

West, who hasn’t tweeted since New Year’s, also railed against social media: “Do not read comments on the Internet. These people don’t know you like that. Social media is designed to make you think slower. … They want to slow you down and control you” pic.twitter.com/1BGpA5prGt

That seems like good advice. So long as you don’t stay off RedState.

Kanye also encouraged gratitude — not to Trump or Republicans, but something much different:
