Ye praises Hitler during interview with Alex Jones

The hours-long interview on a conspiracy theory website gave Ye a platform to make antisemitic statements with little challenge from the host.

In an hourslong interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, the rapper Ye praised Hitler, made antisemitic jokes and talked about his recent meeting with former President Donald Trump.

The interview became one of the biggest stories on the internet Thursday, dominating discussions on social media for hours. “Kanye” became the top trending topic on Twitter and, according to Google Trends, searches for “Infowars” spiked during the interview.

During the livestreamed exchange, Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, repeatedly referred to antisemitic stereotypes, made antisemitic jokes and praised Hitler. NBC News previously reported that Ye had used antisemitic language in workplace settings and spoke positively about the Nazi dictator, resulting in at least one paid settlement.

“The Jewish media has made us feel like the Nazis and Hitler have never offered anything of value to the world,” Ye said at one point during the interview. “I see good things about Hitler, also.”

Clips of Ye’s statements quickly went viral on other social media platforms. On Twitter, videos of Ye praising Hitler quickly gained hundreds of thousands of views.

In the wake of the interview, Ye received criticism from former friends, supporters and collaborators. On Thursday, the Republican House Judiciary Committee appeared to delete a viral tweet from October that read “Kanye. Elon. Trump.”, and Elon Musk tweeted: “@kanyewest Jesus taught love, kindness and forgiveness. I used to think that turning the other cheek was weak & foolish, but I was the fool for not appreciating its profound wisdom.” The Twitter account for Parler, the alternative social media platform that Ye said he planned to purchase, also tweeted Thursday that the deal was terminated in a mutual agreement in mid-November.

Over the last several months, Ye has repeatedly made statements targeting Jewish people or using Jewish stereotypes, resulting in suspensions from Twitter and Instagram, the termination of his company’s work with Adidas and the end of many other professional partnerships the rapper had with companies, like fashion brand Balenciaga.

On Nov. 20, Ye announced that he intends to run for president in 2024. In the weeks since, Ye revealed that he would be working with white nationalist Nick Fuentes and far-right figure Milo Yiannopoulos on his campaign.

This week Ye also appeared on Tim Pool’s conservative-leaning YouTube show. When Pool began pushing back against Ye’s antisemitic statements, Ye walked away from the interview. 

In Jones’ broadcast, Ye was allowed to freely make antisemitic statements alongside Fuentes with little questioning from Jones, who at times said that he himself was not antisemitic. In November, Jones was ordered to pay nearly half a billion dollars to families of Sandy Hook school shooting victims, for promoting the falsehood that the 2012 massacre was a hoax.

Mixed in with his antisemitic remarks, Ye also addressed his recent dinner with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, saying that “Trump loved Nick.” Ye recounted, “He looked at me, said, “Where did you find this kid?”

The account adds to the growing controversy surrounding Fuentes’ presence at the dinner table, which has prompted bipartisan criticism given his as a white supremacist. Trump has since denied knowing who Fuentes was during the encounter.

I figure there's a 50/50 chance that Kanye is the keynote speaker at the 2024 Republican Party convention ... but only because the Nazi Party won't have him.

Has anyone here watched black Jesus? That show was hilarious.

How could it not be? John Witherspoon & Charkie Murphy! Pure awesomeness.

As for Kanye, I'll the same thing Ive been saying for a while, long before right wing pundits stupidly sought his stardom power, the man is LITERALLY mentally ill, they sont try to give masive doses of Lithium to sane people.

Elon said Kanye violated incitement of violence rules.

Lets be bkuntly honest. Ye like Alex Jones has become increasingly mentally unstable and not worth the flack. I think that's what really happened.

I don’t think Ye has mental problems. He just not understood that it is only okay to be a Nazi as long as you don’t say anything against Jews. If he’d be a pro-Israel and pro-Ukraine Nazi the media would love him and maybe roll out the red carpet to da White House.

^ Is this the praising of Hitler that Ye did?

Fri Dec 02 02:26:16
I mean, objectively bad connotations aside that is a true statement. Hitler/Nazis did do some good things. Anyone who praises China's rise out of poverty should look at the Hitler regime, animal rights, the people's car, killing communists ,environmental laws etc.

Mainly the bad part just over shadows ANY thing else, the genocide.

Paramount, Kanye looks to have a clear case of bipolar, which would make sense why they wanted him on Lithium.

The issue is in previous interviews he is not creative medicated, it makes him a zombie. His money.largely comes from artistic endeavors.

I mean, he doesn't really.need to keep creating financially anymore, but I would understand someone not wanting to give that up either.

Kanye suspended from Twitter by free speech maximalist Elon Musk? I don't believe it!

Elon loved his bullshit until he became politically useless.

And once again, the owner of Free Speech® explained that he was censoring voices based on his personal emotions, and his vacuous little fanboys go "Yay! Thats exactly what free speech is about! He lets everyone speak except people that say things he personally doesn't like! Freedom! Musk!"

His ex-wife dismissed his vulgar use of their stillborn child for PR purposes as a lie rather handily, though.

I'm not sure that is what they are trying to do. I think they want him on because they know it will be a car crash and get viewers.

Yeah but you can figure that stuff our before the cameras ever start rolling if you're really trying to help him. It wouldn't take more than a two minute conversation with him to figure out that he has no desire to walk anything back.

I'm sure that is how they wanted it to look.

Either it's a car crash, or they have a redemption story.

Reliably, they get one or the other: it amounts to the same thing, they aren't trying to help him, they are exploiting him ruthlessly.

West, the Kardashian clan, the Jenner clan. All of them are just plain and simple attention whores. They have no scruples or do they care what they do to get attention. They just thrive on attention.

But even huge fortunes do things to many peoples minds. Some cope with it, but many, probably most imo, don't. Enormous wealth would have turned me into a complete shit in younger years, and even to this day I wouldnt be able to guarantee that it wouldnt warp my self-image, at least to some degree.

It's so amusing to see UP's leftists, who are largely anti-Semitic themselves, pile on Ye for his anti-Semitism.

If only he hadn't put on that MAGA hat one time, y'all scumbags would likely be praising him as a brave black man standing up to the global elitists.

First of all you can be anti-semitic and still recognize that Hitler and the Nazis were straight up bad guys. That's made even easier by the nazis we have now in the GOP trying to destroy this country.

It's also possible to be anti-semitic without believing batshit things.

And no, Kanye was garbage long before he ever put on a stupid KKKlown hat, or before he ever met with Trump, or before Trump ever ran for anything.

The irony of the pro censorship crowd getting mad when someone is censored "Oh its not free speech enough!! It kust be to the extreme so we can than get pissed off about it" either way they are pussy.

But I kind of get it in Europe since free speech literally doesn't exist. It just isn't a right there, and that's fine, it is their prerogative I guess, but it makes sense they don't grasp wht Americans often find it so important.

"Hate Speech’s Rise on Twitter Is Unprecedented, Researchers Find"

I'm sure it is, but those numbers are bogus. There was and is a shit ton more daily racist and homophobic tweets that he claims.

There's a decent chance that I scrolled past well over 100 in any given day, and I obviously wasn't consuming anywhere near 1% of the content on twitter.

Yeah there are tons more, but there's no point in trying to put together a comprehensive list.
