Rapper Kanye West finds himself amidst controversy YET AGAIN. Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) and controversy go hand-in-hand. This time it was on an Infowars podcast, hosted by another controversial figure, Alex Jones.
Kanye West “Loves A Lot of Things” About Hitler
Host Alex Jones was suggesting that Kanye, a designer himself, liking the Nazi uniform design doesn’t necessarily correlate to him liking the Nazis. Jones stated that Nazi Germany leader Adolf Hitler “wasn’t a good guy.” Kanye instantly responded stating “No. There’s a lot of things I love by Hitler.” This comes after Kanye recent history of making insensitive anti-Semitic remarks.
West stated he sees “good things” about Hitler also. “I love everyone,” he further added. He believes Jewish people don’t get to tell him who and what to accept. He exclaimed he was “tired of classifications.” To the Grammy winner, “every human being has something of value that they brought to the table. Especially, Hitler.”
Kanye Believes In The Greater Good?
The gimp mask wearing rapper would go on to state that he doesn’t necessarily like the ‘evil’ tag deployed upon Nazis. Alex Jones was caught off-guard by the rapper’s statement and indulged in some nervous laughter while exclaiming “oh my goodness” in disbelief. He gave West the benefit of the doubt and suggested that just because he doesn’t like one group doesn’t mean that he has to love another and ‘another’ is not evil. Kanye disagreed. He stated, “I love Jewish people. But I also love Nazis.” With White supremacist Nick Fuentes looking on, Jones rebutted by stating “I have to disagree with that.”
The Disgraced Rapper Believes the Nazis “Did Good Things Too
Alex Jones went on to clarify that Nazis in his view, were thugs. Thugs who “did really bad things.” Kanye West instantly responded to that statement. He stated, “But they did good things too. We gotta stop dissing the Nazis all the time.” With such absurd statements, many Twitter users joked that it takes innate talent to make Alex Jones appear as the less controversial figure in the room. Jones has faced waves of public criticism due to his absurd claim that a 2012 school shooting was a hoax. Due to the wave of anti-Semitic comments, U.S President Joe Biden expressed condemnation of toleration of such hateful comments.
Elon Musk Left With No Choice
Kanye West had just returned to social media platforms on 21st November after his account was suspended for making anti-Semitic statements. He finds himself suspended again. Elon Musk was forced to intervene after West tweeted a picture of the Nazi symbol within the Star of David (a symbol of Jewish identity and Judaism). Musk, who vouches for ‘freedom of speech’ on Twitter stated, “I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”
A Boycotted Figure
West has been an isolated and boycotted figure in recent times. He lost over two billion dollars in a day due to brands cutting ties with him. Bank JP Morgan, Adidas, Gap, Balenciaga and others have distanced themselves from the controversial figure by cutting ties. The right-leaning social app Parler has also arrived at a “mutual decision” and decided to no longer allow Kanye West to acquire the company.
