Ye praised Hitler and the Nazis, denied the Holocaust, and attacked Jewish people.
During an unhinged interview with convicted conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, West wearing a full face mask throughout the interview.
Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler. Also Hitler was born Christian.
I see good things about Hitler also. I love everyone. Jewish people are not going to tell me you can love us, and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts, and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography.
But this guy that invented highways, invented the very 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.”
When Jones said he didn’t like Nazis as the show moved to a commercial break, Ye interjected.
We got to stop dissing the Nazis all the time.”
Throughout the show, Ye blamed several subjects mentioned in the broadcast, including suppression of free speech, on “zionists.” At one point, he said that
it’s Satan that gets inside of the zionists and makes them do evil things.”
Jones seemed uncomfortable by the intensity of Ye’s antisemitism interjected,
You’ve got a little bit of a Hitler fetish going on…
I’m not on the whole Jew thing.”
Ye was undeterred by the pushback.
I don’t like the word ‘evil’ next to Nazis. I love Jewish people, but I also love Nazis.”
Ye continued to praise Hitler and Nazis while railing against Jewish people as the interview wore on
He didn’t kill six million Jews. That’s just factually incorrect.
The Holocaust is not what happened. Let’s look at the facts of that. Hitler has a lot of redeeming qualities.”
He also shared praise of Putin, who has tried to justify Russia’s war on Ukraine by claiming he simply wants to rid the latter nation of Nazis. Ye was joined on Thursday by white nationalist holocaust denier Nick Fuentes, and when Fuentes said he’s “very pro-Putin” and “very pro-Russia,” Ye responded
I am also.”
