During an appearance on Infowars on Thursday with white nationalist Nick Fuentes, the rapper defended Hitler after Jones tried to minimize Ye’s antisemitism by saying “You’re not Hitler, you’re not a Nazi, you don’t deserve to be called that and demonized.”
In response, Ye felt obliged to defend the man responsible for millions of deaths during World War II by extolling the German dictator’s “value.”
“Well, I see good things about Hitler, also. I love everyone,” said Ye, who was inexplicably wearing a black mask covering his head and face.
The rapper then went on another antisemitic tangent. “The Jewish people are not going to tell me, you know, 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.”
He also falsely claimed that Hitler “invented highways and invented the very microphone that I use as a musician.”
Ye added, “You can’t say out loud that this person never did anything good, and I’m done with that, I’m done with the classifications, and every human being has value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”
Jones, meanwhile, compared Israel’s COVID-19 vaccine policies to the Nazi doctor Josef Mengele’s gruesome medical experiments on death camp prisoners.
YouTube later removed Ye’s interview for violating its terms of service, but you can view a news story about it below.
Naturally, Twitter users had thoughts.
Ye has reportedly been pro-Hitler for a while.
Last month, NBC News reported that he paid a settlement to a former employee who alleged he had praised both Hitler and the Nazis in business meetings.
