Disgraced rapper Kanye West admitted “I love Hitler” as he and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes were interviewed by right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Infowars.
West, who was dumped by Adidas, GAP and Balenciaga following a series of anti-Semitic comments, repeatedly praised the Nazi leader during his appearance on the show Thursday morning.
Despite Jones’ efforts to say he didn’t believe West was a Nazi, the hip-hop star cut him off and insisted he was a fan of the man who oversaw the murder of about 6 million Jews.
“You’re not Hitler, you’re not a Nazi, so you don’t deserve to be demonized,” Jones told West, who oddly wore a black balaclava over his face in the studio.
But West was not ready to accept Jones’ attempt to expose Nazism.
“Well, I see good things about Hitler too,” West replied.
“The Jews…I love everyone, and the Jewish people are not going to say to me, ‘You can love us and you can love what we do to you with the contracts, and you can love what we push with the pornography’, but this guy who invented the highways, invented the microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good and I’m done with that .
“I’m done with rankings. Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.
Jone went on to tell the rapper he had a “Hitler fetish” and as the show ended with a commercial break, Jones told him he didn’t like Nazis or Hitler, to which West said. replied shockingly: “I love Hitler”.
West, who plans to run for president in 2024, later added, “They did good things too, we have to stop disbanding the Nazis all the time.”
And he added: “The Jewish media gave us the impression that the Nazis and Hitler never offered anything of value to the world.”
After the shocking interview, the House Judiciary Committee Republicans Twitter account deleted a tweet that read “Kanye. Elon. Trump.” The tweet was posted in October and the account had come under pressure to remove the tweet as West continued to make anti-Semitic remarks.
During Thursday’s interview, West also pulled out a drizzle and a bottle of Yoohoo chocolate milk, in an apparent mockery of Israeli Prime Minister-elect Benjamin Netanyahu.
It came a day after the Israeli politician said Donald Trump’s meeting at Mar-a-Lago with West and Fuentes was a “mistake”.
“I condemned Kanye West’s anti-Semitic statements. I think President Trump’s decision to have dinner with this person is wrong and misplaced. He shouldn’t do that. I think he made a mistake. I hope it doesn’t happen again,” he told American journalist Bari Weiss.
A number of celebrities condemned West’s comments, including Frozen Josh Gad, who is Jewish.
“It’s not what Kanye West says that scares me,” he wrote on Twitter. “It’s that he has 30 million followers listening to his madness over a cheerleader in the form of the current owner of this platform.
“No one who says ‘I love Hitler’ should be given oxygen on any social platform (period).”
Jon Stewart summed up his reaction without directly mentioning West:
