Disgraced rapper Kanye West admitted “I like Hitler” as he and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes were interviewed by right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Infowars.
West, who was dumped by the likes of Adidas, GAP and Balenciaga after a series of antisemitic comments, praised the Nazi leader again when he appeared on the show on Thursday morning.
Despite attempts by Jones to say he didn’t think West was a Nazi, the hip-hop star cut him off and insisted he loved the man behind the massacre. on 6 million Jews.
“You’re not Hitler, you’re not a Nazi, so you don’t deserve to be destroyed,” Jones told West, who awkwardly wore a black hood over his face in the studio.
But West was unwilling to accept Jones’ attempt to deny Nazism.
“Well, I see good things about Hitler too,” West replied.
“The Jews … I love everybody, and the Jews are not going to say to me ‘You can love us and you can do what we do to you with the love deals, and you can love what we push with porn. ‘, but this man who invented highways invented the microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this man never did good and I done with that.
“I’m done with the classifications. Everyone brought something of value to the table, especially Hitler.”
Jone went on to tell the rapper he had a “Hitler fetish” and as the show went to commercial break, Jones told him he didn’t like Nazis or Hitler, to which West surprisingly replied, “I like Hitler .”
West, who plans to run for president in 2024, later said: “They did good things too, we have to stop the Nazis all the time.”
And he said: “The Jewish press has made us feel that the Nazis and Hitler have never offered anything of value to the world. “
After the shocking interview, the Twitter account of Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee deleted a tweet that said “Kanye. Birds. Trump.” The tweet was posted in October, and the account had been under pressure to remove the tweet as West continued to make antisemitic comments.
During Thursday’s interview, West also brought out a net and a bottle of Yoohoo chocolate milk, in an attempt to poke fun at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
It came a day after the Israeli politician said Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago meeting with West and Fuentes was a “mistake.”
“I criticized Kanye West’s antisemitic statements. President Trump’s decision to dine with this person I think is wrong and wrong. He shouldn’t do that. I think he made a mistake. I hope it doesn’t happen again,” he told American journalist Bari Weiss.
Several celebrities criticized West’s comments, including Frozen star Josh Gad, who is Jewish.
“It’s not what Kanye West says that scares me,” he wrote on Twitter. “This is that he has 30 million followers who listen to his complaint as well as a cheerleader in the form of the current owner of this platform.
“Anyone who says ‘I like Hitler’ on any social platform (period) should not be allowed oxygen.”
Jon Stewart summed up his opinion without mentioning West directly:
