Kanye West Repeatedly Praises Hitler In Interview With Alex Jones, Declares: ‘I’m A Nazi’
On Thursday, while on Alex Jones’s show Info Wars, Kanye West repeatedly praised Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime. Conspiracy theorist Jones had Nick Fuentas, an open white supremacist, and West on his show to discuss the controversy surrounding the two following their dinner with former President Donald Trump last week.
The rapper showed up to InfoWars wearing a black face mask and gloves.
As the interview went on, the infamous rapper, became more and more unhinged, saying at one point, “Every human being has something of value that they bring to the table, especially Hitler.”
“The Jewish people are not going to tell me, ‘you can love us and or you can love what we’re doing to your contracts, but this guy [Hitler] that invented highways and invented the very microphone that I use as a musician – you cannot say out loud that he ever did anything good.”
The microphone is usually credited with being invented by Emile Berliner in 1876 though inventors Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell have been credited as well. The modern highway was created almost 50 years prior to Hitler’s rise to power and attempts to make highways date back 100 years before the Nazi leader’s birth.
Jones attempted to steer the conversation away from Hitler several times and more so toward other media outlets. In one moment, he told West that “CNN says white people are evil Nazis,” to which West responded he doesn’t like the words “evil” and “Nazi” being combined.
West went on to deny the genocide of the Holocaust. “There are Jewish people basically hiding me under their floorboards right now. It’s like a reverse version of the Holocaust,” he said.
In another vile moment, West enthusiastically labeled himself “a Nazi.”
When discussing the incoming Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, West mocked the leader by pretending to be him while displaying a net on a stick. “I’m the head of the Mossad,” West said, continuing to make believe that the net was talking. “I’m going to kill you and take your children away from you. We control the history books and we control the banks, and we always kill people.”
The rapper has frequently used the racist trope that Jewish people “control society.”
Israel Ambassador to the U.S Michael Herzog said that he was “sickened by the conversation that Alex Jones had with avowed antisemites Kanye West and Nick Fuentes,” adding that the comments made by West could lead to more violence toward the Jewish community.
Parler, a conservative social media site, has now terminated a deal that they had with the shamed rapper.
West has continuously defended his antisemitic statements ever since he posted that he was “going Deafcon 3 on Jewish people,” back in October.
Last week, the rapper was in the news for attending a dinner with Trump. Reportedly, West had asked the ex-President to be his running mate. Not long after, West announced he would be running for president in 2024.
