Rapper Kanye ‘Ye’ West has admitted he is an admirer of Adolf Hitler, telling Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones that he “love” former Nazi leader and “sees good things” about him.
During an appearance Thursday on Jones’ Infowars show, West doubled down on his recent inflammatory comments about Jewish people, this time also praising Hitler.
When Jones tried to defend West’s past anti-Semitic comments, saying he wasn’t a Nazi and he didn’t “deserves to be demonized” the rapper quickly dismissed the help.
“I also see good things about Hitler,” he replied, while wearing a black balaclava covering his entire face.
Jones attempted to push back against anti-Semitism, accusing the rapper of having a “a bit of a Hitler fetish.” When Jones clarified that he was not personally a Hitler fan, West simply replied: “I love Hitler.”
“Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”
The Infowars host burst out laughing after West said he loves Jews, “but also loves Nazis.”
As the show returned from a commercial break, West expanded further, urging listeners to “Stop criticizing the Nazis all the time” because they had “does good things too.”
He kept blaming “Jewish media” to make people believe that the Nazis and Hitler did not offer “anything of value” in the world.
“I love Hitler, I love Zionists. I love everyone,” he says at another point in the interview. West appeared on the show alongside controversial right-wing commentator Nick Fuentes.
West has come under fire in recent weeks for his inflammatory remarks about Jews, including saying in October that he would “dead con 3 on the Jewish people.” The comments caused a massive backlash which saw a host of brands cut ties with him.
