In praise of political Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian has been getting political and — dare I say that most forbidden of words? — woke. And I am here for it.

The 36-year-old has been taking to Twitter to speak out about the disasters in Mexico — using her cover of Vogue Mexico to encourage earthquake recovery donations — and Puerto Rico. And now, she’s taking on gun control.

On Wednesday, Kardashian reposted a picture that read, “When the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd amendment, guns fired one round per minute. Today’s rifles have a cyclic rate of 600+. Maybe it’s time we stopped using 18th century laws to regulate 21st century weapons.” KWEEN!

She also urged her followers to join the movement to end gun violence, and donate blood to the victims in Las Vegas.

Kim also got a little political light last year, when she took out an ad in the New York Times denouncing the Wall Street Journal for publishing an ad that denied the Armenian genocide. And now, she’s going full out.

Should we be worried that Kimberly Noel Kardashian has now become a sign of hope in these dark days? Probably. But also maybe we should take what we can get.
